David Laskin Quotes

"Gro Rollag was no beauty, but she was a strong capable young woman with a long face, prominent cheekbones, high forehead, and a kindly intelligent look in her rather narrow eyes. According to family lore, she was not the most conscientious housekeeper because she preferred reading to housework. A love of books and reading ran in the family. Of all the possessions they were forced to sell or leave behind in Norway, what the Rollags remembered with deepest regret was the library they inherited from an eighteenth-century ancestor - lovely old books sold to pay for their passage to America."

Quotes About Mirrors In Speak

"Trout did another thing which some people might have considered eccentric: he called mirrors leaks. It amused him to pretend that mirrors were holes between two universes.If he saw a child near a mirror, he might wag his finger at a child warningly, and say with great solemnity, "Dont get too near that leak. You wouldent want to wind up in the other universe, would you?"Sometimes somebody would say in his presence, "Excuse me, I have to take a leak." This was a way of saying that the speaker intended to drain liquid wastes from his body through a valve in his lower abdomen.And trout would reply waggishly, "where I come from, that means youre about to steal a mirror."And so on" - Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Quotes About Gossip Family

"[Ava] had always thought the main relationship in the family was the one between Nancy and her daughters. To have a family, you needed a father, of course, and Jimmy had played that role perfectly well, if you were okay with an old-fashioned interpretation of the job. But the Nickerson family was all about the women and their noisy, bickering, gossiping, interfering relationships with one another.And now it seemed that maybe she ahd been looking at it all wrong. Maybe she and Lauren were just the icing, and the basic, underlying cake of the family was the couple in front of her who had a shared history she knew very little about." - Author: Claire LaZebnik

Quotes About Crises

"Em casa, lia a maior parte do tempo; tentava assim extinguir sob impressões exteriores o que fervilhava constantemente em mim. As únicas expressões exteriores de que dispunha vinham-me da leitura. Elas eram pra mim um grande conforto, naturalmente: comoviam-me, distraíam-me, atormentavam-me; porém um momento chegava em que eu ficava muito fatigado. Sentia necessidade de agir: então, de repente, mergulhava na libertinagem, em uma sórdida libertinagenzinha hipócrita, subterrânea. Minha irritação contínua tornava minhas paixões ardentes, lancinantes. Meus impulsos apaixonados terminavam em crises de nervos, com lágrimas e convulsões. Fora da leitura eu não tinha nenhuma distração. Nada em torno de mim que pudesse me impor um certo respeito e me atrair para si. Uma angústia vaga me submergia; eu experimentava uma sede histérica de contrastes, de oposições, e então me lançava na devassidão." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
