"You cant hang around geniuses forever because they end up taking everything youve got. Thats why theyre the genius and youre not."

Sarah Felix Burns Quotes

"But even now, especially now, it seems to me that women have a strength about them that men never had. And I wonder how did men always get portrayed in the movies and such as the strong ones? How did it come to be that women are made to look like the weak ones who need protectin? Truth is, its men who need the protectin. Really they do. Women have the strong thing inside of them and the can get through anything. They just can. Theyre used to pain of child birthing - pain no man knows - and some women being battered around and not treated right through all the centuries and having to learn at a real young age how to stay alive on the inside when the outside is being hurt real bad. Most all women know that. But men. Those poor men. They just dont have the inside strength the women do. Its harder for men to feel pain."

"The Park?" Gus asked skeptically, following him out of Kalis building and across the empty street. "The place with the homicidal poodle pack and creepy hanging goddess?"

Augustus Cileone Quotes

"Man, do you ever feel its just the hope of things we live for? I asked. I mean, its like the things themselves are just a big disappointment, you know? We like the searching, the dreaming. Its sort oflike the way previews for a movie are better than the film itself sometimes. What was that line I heard from Spock on Star Trek? He says Having is not as good as wanting or something like that. Like, reality is the ultimate letdown."

Gordon Korman Quotes

"That Mesozoic mamas boy wouldnt have lasted five seconds in the Cretaceous period."

Sarah Dunn Quotes

"She knew that what she was going through was nothing special, just garden-variety heartbreak, the sort of thing that poets and novelists had been writing about for hundreds of years, but she also knew, from those same books, that there were people who never recover form it, ones who go on through life beset by a dim and painful longing."

Quotes About The Sheepdog

"Is that a scanning electron microscope? "Thisll do, pig, thisll do," I murmur."Excuse me?""Sorry. Film reference, wasnt meant as an insult.""Ah. I see." His tone tells me he clearly doesnt. I briefly consider educating him, but explaining a movieabout a talking pig who wants to be a sheepdog to a Japanese vampire just isnt all that high on my to-dolist." - Author: D.D. Barant

Quotes About The Triple Crown

"I was fuzzy on the details, but I knew the basic outline. I knew how I wanted to be, it was simply a question of being who I wanted to be.I thought I had had it all figured out before. Id had the plan perfectly clear in my head. I wasnt going to cross into thirty without the triple crown in hand: serious boyfriend, career, and great friends..It was time to accept that maybe, just maybe, I didnt have to have it all figured out by the time I turned thirty. Maybe I could just work on me, and see what else fell into place.I was pretty sure that was otherwise known as living." - Author: Megan Crane

Quotes About Kafka Books

"Love hasnt got anything to do with the heart, the hearts a disgusting organ, a sort of pump full of blood. Love is primarily concerned with the lungs. People shouldnt say "shes broken my heart" but "shes stifled my lungs." Lungs are the most romantic organs: lovers and artists always contract tuberculosis. Its not a coincidence that Chekhov, Kafka, D.H. Lawrence, Chopin, George Orwell and St Thérèse of Lisieux all died of it; as for Camus, Moravia, Boudard and Katherine Mansfield, would they have written the same books if it werent for TB?" - Author: Frédéric Beigbeder

Quotes About Grace Life

"Oh little Poupchette, some may tell you that you are nobodys child, a child of defilement, a child begotten in fear and horror. Some may tell you that you are a child of abomination conceived in abomination, a tainted child, a child polluted long before you were born. Do not pay attention to them, my little sweetheart, please do not listen to them; listen to me. I say you are my child and I love you. I sometimes say that out of horror, beauty and purity and grace are born. I say I am your father for ever. I say the loveliest rose can bloom in contaminated soil. I say you are the dawn, the light of all my tomorrows, and the only thing that matters is the promise you represent. I say you are my luck and my forgiveness. My darling Poupchette, I say you are my whole life." - Author: Philippe Claudel

Quotes About Forbryder

"så lad det være den største forbryder, han er dog et menneske som jeg; også han har været uskyldig! Hvem veed, hvor mange haarde kampe han kjæmpede, før han gjorde det første skridt til sin ulykke; lidt efter lidt gled han dybere, - pludselig bliver ingen en forbryder: det ere lidenskaber, opdragelse og en forunderlig sammenkjædning af omstændigheder, som danner vores livs malerie, - vi maa afskye forbryderens handlinger, men kan menneskeligheden dadles om den beklager ham? Hvem veed hvorledes vi havde handlet, om vi vare fødte i hans stilling, med hans lidenskaber og begreber?" - Author: Hans Christian Andersen
