Stefan Petrucha Quotes

"Your novels show only the tiniest fraction of detective work, the brilliant crime, the tantalizing clues, the dramatic chase, the final battle atop a lofty peak with ocean waves crashing down below, and then… justice served! If they wrote about the real world, four-fifths of the story would consist of the hero sitting in a library for months and following false leads."

Charles Fort Quotes

"Char me the trunk of a redwood tree. Give me pages of white chalk cliffs to write upon. Magnify me thousands of times, and replace my trifling immodesties with a titanic megalomania — then might I write largely enough for our subjects."

Claudio Cordella Quotes

"Prima di essere dimesso viene visitato da un dottore umano, non da qualche genere di robot paramedico, un tipo sbrigativo e cordiale.

Quotes About Neighbors And Friends

"We ate in the dining room alcove looking over the hillside and the silent dark rooftops of my neighbors. The lights of the valley glittered below.We were both tired but we smiled at each other, and I felt a kind of happiness growing inside me. It was good to look across the table and see someone, and I thought maybe it was time to start thinking about that again—about finding someone. Sharing my life maybe.Or maybe just getting more friends around. Except when I pictured the friends I wanted around, they all looked like Dan, and when I thought about trying to find someone to share my life with, he too looked a little too much like Dan for comfort." - Author: Josh Lanyon

Quotes About Illness And Recovery

"Tempting as it may be to draw one conclusion or another from my story and universalize it to apply to anothers experience, it is not my intention for my book to be seen as some sort of cookie-cutter approach and explanation of mental illness, It is not ab advocacy of any particular form of therapy over another. Nor is it meant to take sides in the legitimate and necessary debate within the mental health profession if which treatments are most effective for this or any other mental illness.            What it is, I hope, is a way for readers to get a true feel for what its like to be in the grips of mental illness and what its like to strive for recovery." - Author: Rachel Reiland

Quotes About Tequila And Love

"They will say I smoked cigarettes and marijuana, cursed hoarse as a crow in all my languages, and loved morphine and Demerol and tequila and pulque, women and men. I will shrug my illusion of shoulders and answer that I am a water woman, not a vessel, not something you can sail or charter. I am instead the tributary, the river, the fluid source, and the sea itself. I am all her rainy implications. And what do you, with your rusted compass, know of love?" - Author: Kate Braverman

Quotes About Spilling

"Remember?" he asks. "This is where you kissed me." So the heavy dose of morphling administered after the whipping wasnt enough to erase that from his consciousness. "I didnt think youd remember that," I say. "Have to be dead to forget. Maybe even not then," he tells me. "Maybe Ill be like that man in The Hanging Tree. Still waiting for an answer." Gale, who I have never seen cry, has tears in his eyes. To keep them from spilling over, I reach forward and press my lips against his. We taste of heat, ashes, and misery. Its a surprising flavour for such a gentle kiss. He pulls away first and gives me a wry smile. "I knew youd kiss me." "How?" I say. Because I didnt know myself. "Because Im in pain," he says. "Thats the only way I get your attention." He picks up the box. "Dont worry, Katniss. Itll pass." He leaves me before I can answer." - Author: Suzanne Collins
