Sianne Ngai Quotes

"The asymmetry of power that cuteness revolves around is another compelling reminder of how aesthetic categories register social conflict. There can be no experience of any person or object as cute that does not somehow call up the subjects sense of power over those who are less powerful. But, as Lori Merish underscores, the fact that the cute object seems capable of making an affective demand on the subject—a demand for care that the subject is culturally as well as biologically compelled to fulfill—is already a sign that "cute" does not just denote a static power differential, but rather a dynamic and complex power struggle."

Georges Carpentier Quotes

Quotes About Crazy Beautiful

"Hot is really not an adequate enough word for this guy. He is crazy beautiful. And its more than his looks—the intentionally messy waves of his dark hair; the strong eyebrows that make his expression a bit serious, even when he smiles; his eyes, which I notice can look emerald in one light and hazel in another; the sweetly sculpted angles of his face; the curve of his full lips." - Author: Cynthia Hand

Quotes About Broken Pieces

"He lay on top of me, buried deep, and fell asleep.He slept all night like that, and I did not move him, did not want to. I gasped breath in and out and closed my eyes and thought that I would never forget this feeling, of him on me and in me, of him consuming my soul and letting me go.He was too callous, too far gone to realize that Id never be free of him, and all hed really done was set me adrift.I never left that bed.That feeling of helpless abandonment and unendurable longing stayed inside of me, for hours, for minutes, for weeks.For years.I went through my life, through tragedy and pain, through hardship and life, and my heart, my very sould, stayed in that bed.I felt broken after that last encounter.Pieces of me had been shattered on that bed, important, essential pieces, and they would not, could not, ever find their way back together.But I kept going. Life is cruel like that." - Author: R.K. Lilley

Quotes About Quiet Reflection

"The vision I see in the mirror is me, who I am, supposedly, but that vision does not express the way my mind works or the way I feel inside. A realization creeps over me, the words tumbling into my head quietly like falling leaves.I.Am.Crazy.This is my new shameful truth. Something changed yesterday. A door has been opened that I can never close again. I touch my reflection, the glass smooth and cold, not really believing that the girl I see is me." - Author: Victoria Sawyer

Quotes About Cluttered Desk

"I saw that office display the other day at the modern gallery. I just didnt know what I was looking at. A still life of a secretarys cluttered desk? A sunset over a mountainous landscape of cash? I dont understand richy people. Think theyre so profound, so much better than everybody else. Theyre just trying to compensate for their melancholy, eccentric natures, their loneliness. It must be awful to own a fortune 500 company." - Author: Benson Bruno
