But this definition does not correspond to the work accomplished by good Chinese housewives. When they mend a sock, they do not try to imitate the texture of the stuff. Their art makes no attempt at concealment: it even takes a certain pride in revealing itself." - Author: Daniele Varè

Have you gone and fallen in love on me?"She jerked, whirled, gaped at him. He was watching her with such—such bloody affection, such patience and sympathy. She could have beaten him black and blue. Instead, she just shoved clear of him and snatched up her toolbox. "Shawn Gallagher, you are truly a great idiot of a man."With her nose in the air and her tools clanking, she stalked out.He only shook his head, then went back to his cleaning up.

Quotes About Muore

"La gente vive, ha il suo momento, i suoi baci, le risate, gli abbracci, le sue parole dolci, le sue gioie e i suoi dolori, ogni vita è un universo che poi crolla su se stesso e non lascia niente dietro di sé se non pochi oggetti resi preziosi e attraenti dalla scomparsa del proprietario, diventano importanti, a volte sacri, come se un frammento di quellesistenza che è sparita si fosse trasferita sulla tazza del caffè, sulla sega, sulla spazzola, sulla sciarpa. Ma tutto alla fine svanisce, i ricordi si cancellano e tutto muore. Dove prima cera la vita e la luce adesso cè il buio e loblio." - Author: Jón Kalman Stefánsson
