Barbara Casey Quotes

"Look, Charlie," said Vince leaning back in his chair. "Its real simple. We will be four people--two men and two women--I figure its better to have two women instead of three men and one woman so shell have someone she can confide in and all. Women need that kind of thing. Anyway, well be four people--friends--housemates--equal partners. Well be an alliance. Well be just like family. And well help take care of one another. Well have a nice home, each with our own private bedroom and bathroom, and a nice yard with flowers.""And maybe a vegetable garden," added Charlie."Thats it," grinned Vince."

Quotes About Baltic States

"When, as my friend suggested, I stand before Zeus (whether I die naturally, or under sentence of History)I will repeat all this that I have written as my defense.Many people spend their entire lives collecting stamps or old coins, or growing tulips. I am sure that Zius will be merciful toward people who have given themselves entirely to these hobbies, even though they are only amusing and pointless diversions. I shall say to him : "It is not my fault that you made me a poet, and that you gave me the gift of seeing simultaneously what was happening in Omaha and Prague, in the Baltic states and on the shores of the Arctic Ocean.I felt that if I did not use that gift my poetry would be tasteless to me and fame detestable. Forgive me." And perhaps Zeus, who does not call stamp-collectors and tulip-growers silly, will forgive." - Author: Czesław Miłosz

Quotes About Fur Babies

"It was the custom in those days for passengers leaving for America to bring balls of yarn on deck. Relatives on the pier held the loose ends. As the "Giulia" blew its horn and moved away from the dock, a few hundred strings of yarn stretched across the water. People shouted farewells, waved furiously, held up babies for last looks they wouldnt remember. Propellers churned; handkerchiefs fluttered, and, up on deck, the balls of yarn began to spin. Red, yellow, blue, green, they untangled toward the pier, slowly at first, one revolution every ten seconds, then faster and faster as the boat picked up speed. Passengers held the yarn as long as possible, maintaining the connection to faces disappearing onshore. But finally, one by one, the balls ran out. The strings of yarn flew free, rising on the breeze." - Author: Jeffrey Eugenides

Quotes About Giving Birth To Your First Child

"A game like sardines is scary, not so much for the hider but for the seekers. Its scary because you lose your companions and the whole world creeps up quiet and you slowly realize youre going to stumble upon a secret place where everyone will jump out at you. And then, when you are the very last seeker, you start to wonder if youre the only person in the world. If the hiding place somehow sucked up the players and the last one has to decide to run away or get sucked up, too." - Author: Suzanne Palmieri

Quotes About Endure

"I think its degrading of you, Flora, cried Mrs Smiling at breakfast. Do you truly mean that you dont ever want to work at anything?Her friend replied after some thought: Well, when I am fifty-three or so I would like to write a novel as good as "Persuasion", but with a modern setting, of course. For the next thirty years or so I shall be collecting material for it. If anyone asks me what I work at, I shall say "Collecting material." No one can object to that. Besides, I shall be.Mrs Smiling drank some coffee in silent disapproval.If you ask me, continued Flora, I think I have much in common with Miss Austen. She liked everything to be tidy and pleasant and comfortable around her, and so do I. You see Mary, - and here Flora began to grow earnest and to wave one finger about - unless everything is tidy and pleasant and comfortable all about one, people cannot even begin to enjoy life. I cannot endure messes." - Author: Stella Gibbons
