[He Wasn't Looking At Her, Was At Such An Oblique Angle To Her That His Face Was Little More Than A Sliver, But She Knew Him At Once. "It Was Like Reading," She Would Try To Explain Later, And She Wasn't Talking About Phonics. She Didn't Break Him Into Syllables—shoulders, Hair, Shirt Collar, Hand, Nose, Cheekbone—and Put Him Back Together Again; She Didn't Sound Him Out. He Was A Language She Knew, And It Was Whole-word Recognition: Will.]

Quotes About Fallen Soldiers

"Another time he felt himself reenacting a conversation with father, a long talk about duty and honor and all the reasons why enlisting was the right thing to do. It was a talk theyd had several months ago, and Frank had agreed with everything his father had said, only this time Frank found himself taking a contrary opinion.

Quotes About How Much You Love Your Daughter

"My daughter squealed again and both Bubba and I winced. Its not an attractive sound, that. Its high-pitched and it enters your ear canals like hot glass. No matter how much I love my daughter, I will never love her squealing. Or maybe I will. Maybe I do. Driving down 93, I realized once and for all, that I love the things that chafe. The things that fill me with stress so total I cant remember when a block of it didnt rest on top of my heart. I love what, if broken, cant be repaired. What, if lost cant be replaced. I love my burdens." - Author: Dennis Lehane

Quotes About Being Beautiful

"Anyway, how can you say things like that? You dont know me at all." She wasnt really caught up in this game, but she was enjoying it, as she had enjoyed the dozens of declarations that had been made to her since she was eleven. Her earliest memories were of being told how beautiful she was. Something in her never believed the words, never felt satisfied. It wasnt modesty; it was a craving for more proof than anyone had ever yet given her. Her mind worked constantly at trying to understand for herself exactly what other people saw when they looked at her. She could never grasp it whole and living. Her deepest fantasy was to step outside of her skin and look at herself and find out just what people were thinking about. She spent her life experimenting with people to see how she could make them react, as if, in their response, she could discover herself." - Author: Judith Krantz
