"Yes, please leave us, the mere presence of beings like yourselves is intensely painful to us."

Professor Trevelyan Quotes

"If woman had no existence save in the fiction written by men, one would imagine her a person of the utmost importance (...); as great as a man, some think even greater. But this is woman in fiction. In fact, as Professor Trevelyan points out [in his History of England], she was locked up, beaten and flung about the room."

Susan Pease Banitt Quotes

"Traumatic events, by definition, overwhelm our ability to cope. When the mind becomes flooded with emotion, a circuit breaker is thrown that allows us to survive the experience fairly intact, that is, without becoming psychotic or frying out one of the brain centers. The cost of this blown circuit is emotion frozen within the body. In other words, we often unconsciously stop feeling our trauma partway into it, like a movie that is still going after the sound has been turned off. We cannot heal until we move fully through that trauma, including all the feelings of the event."

Judith Ellen Foster Quotes

Quotes About Place And Space

"That life.This life.It looks as if you can have both. I mean, theyre both right there, one on top of the other, and it looks as if theyll blend. But they never will.So, you take this thing.You take this thing you want,and you put it in a boxand you close the lid.You can let your fingers trace the cracks, the places where the light gets in, the dark gets out, but the lid stays on. You dont look inside. You dont look at this thing you want so much, because you can. Not. Have. It.So you theres this box, you know, with the thing inside, and you could throw it away or shoot it into space; you could set it on fire and watch it burn to ashes, but really, none of that would make a difference, because you cannot destroy what you want. It only makes you want it more. So.You take this thing you wantand you put it in a boxand you close the lid.And you hold the box close to your heart, which is where it wants to go, and you pretend it doesnt kill you every time you feel yourself breathe." - Author: Megan Hart

Quotes About Tash

"I noticed Wahids boys, all three thin with dirt-caked faces and short-cropped brown hair under their skull caps, stealing furative glances at my digital wristwatch....I unsnapped the wristwatch and gave it to the youngest of the three boys. He muttered a sheepish "Tashakor.""It tells you the time in any city in the world," I told him. The boys, nodding politely passing the watch between them, taking turns trying it on. But they lost interest and, soon the watch sat abandoned on the straw mat....I understood now why the boys hadnt shown any interest in the watch. They hadnt been staring at the watch at all. Theyd been staring at my food." - Author: Khaled Hosseini
