[I Didn't Even Notice That My Shoes Were Full Of Mud By The Time I Reached The Rocky Shore. There Was Ragged Yellow Police Tape Tied To Some Branches, Dancing In The Wind. It Was As If The Tape Was Waving, Welcoming Me Back To Place Where I Would Have Died.]

Henci Goer Quotes

"The second reason caregivers may be silent about the dark side of epidurals is that they generate big bucks for anesthesiologists and hospitals. Epidural charges range from $500 to $2500. A hospital consultant explained to me that hospitals have to maintain staff anesthesiologists around the clock to handle obstetric emergencies. In order for these doctors to make what they consider an adequate income, the hospital has to maintain something like an 80 percent epidural rate. Given this, how strongly do you think medical staff would resist the notion that epidurals are not always a good thing and most women can cope without them?"

Alexandra Horowitz Quotes

"Part of seeing what is on an ordinary block is seeing that everything visible has a history. It arrived at the spot where you found it at some time, was crafted or whittled or forged at some time, filled a certain role or existed for a particular function. It was touched by someone (or no one), and touches someone (or no one) now."

Quotes About Unforgettable Moments In Life

"Let me begin with a heartfelt confession.I admit it. I am a biblioholic, one who loves books and whose life would seem incomplete without them. I am an addict, with a compulsive need to stop by nearly any bookstore I pass in order to get my fix. Books are an essential part of my life, the place where I have spent many unforgettable moments. For me, reading is one of the most enjoyable ways to pass a rainy afternoon or a leisurely summer day. I crave the knowledge and insights that truly great books bring into my life and can spend transported hours scouring used book stores for volumes which "I simply must have". I love the smell and feel of well-loved books and the look of a bookcase full of books waiting to be taken down and read." - Author: Terry W. Glaspey

Quotes About Mother Love For Her Son

"When youre the Woman Upstairs, nobody thinks of you first. Nobody calls you before anyone else, or sends you the first postcard. Once your mother dies, nobody loves you best of all. Its a small thing, you might think; and maybe it depends upon your temperament; maybe for some people its a small thing. But for me, in that cul-de-sac outside Aunt Babys, with my father and aunt done dissecting death and shuffling off to bed behind the crimson farmhouse door, preparing for morning mass as blameless as lambs and as lifeless as the slaughtered—I felt forsaken by hope. I felt Id been seen, and seen clearly, and discarded, dropped back into the undiscriminated pile like a shell upon the shore." - Author: Claire Messud

Quotes About Faded Dreams

"The man of my dreams is almost faded now. The one I have created in my mind. The sort of man each woman dreams of in her most secret and deepest part of her heart. I could almost see him now before me. What would I say to him if he were really here? Forgive me, Ive never known this feeling. Ive lived without it all my life. Is it any wonder that I fail to recognize it? You brought it to me for the first time. Is there any way I can tell you how my life has changed? Anyway at all, to let you know what sweetness you have given me? Theres so much to say-- and I cant find the words-- except for these... I love you. That is what I would say to him if he were really here." - Author: Richard Matheson
