Jess Walter Quotes

"I teach in M.F.A. programs now, and I think thats a great way to become a novelist, but I mourn that Pete Dexter and Joan Didions route is maybe less likely because there are fewer of those jobs. I always liken it to playing piano in some great dive jazz bar. You didnt pick the songs, you played what people asked for, but you got your chops."

Quotes About Hesitation

"Big decisions in my life have always come easy and are made without hesitation. It is easier for me to make a life-changing decision than to decide what to get for dessert." - Author: Tony Hawk

Quotes About Love Hints

"The spelling and handwriting were those of a man imperfectly educated, but still the language itself was forcible. In the expressions of endearment there was a kind of rough, wild love; but here and there were dark unintelligible hints at some secret not of love,----some secret that seemed of crime. "We ought to love each other," was one of the sentences I remember, "for how everyone else would execrate us if all was known." Again: "Dont let anyone be in the same room with you at night,----you talk in your sleep." And again: "Whats done cant be undone; and I tell you theres nothing against us unless the dead could come to life." Here there was underlined in a better handwriting (a females), "They do!" - Author: Edward Bulwer Lytton

Quotes About Forever Together

"When I first took this job at the factory it was not my intention to work there very long, for I once possessed higher hopes for my life, although the exact nature of these hopes remained rather vague in my youthful mind. While the work was not arduous, and my fellow workers congenial enough, I did not imagine myself standing forever at my designated assembly block, fitting together pieces of metal into other pieces of metal, with a few interruptions throughout that day for breaks that were supposed to refresh our minds from the tedium of our work or for meal breaks to allow us to nourish our bodies. Somehow it never occurred to me that the nearby town where I and the others at the factory lived, travelling to and from our jobs along the same fog-strewn road, held no higher opportunities for me or anyone else, which no doubt accounts for the vagueness, the wispy insubstantiality, of my youthful hopes." - Author: Thomas Ligotti

Quotes About Mellie

"I am sure you have heard that appearance doesnt matter and that its whats on the inside that counts.

Quotes About Pulp Magazines

"[Huxleys Perennial Philosophy is concerned with] the need to love the earth and respect nature instead of following the example of those who chopped down vast forests to provide the newsprint demanded by that universal literacy which was to make the world safe for intelligence and democracy, and got wholesale erosion, pulp magazines, and organs of Fascist, Communist, capitalist, and nationalist propaganda. He attacked technological imperialism and the mechanisation [sic] which was increasing the power of a minority to exercise a co-ersive control over the lives of their fellows and the popular philosophy of life... now moulded by advertising copy whose one idea is to persuade everybody to be as extroverted and uninhibitedly greedy as possible, since of course it is only the possessive, the restless, the distracted, who spend money on the things that advertisers want to sell." - Author: Nicholas Murray

Quotes About Polarizing

"Too many politicians are shifting the critical themes of our national conversations from a big ideas American Brand Platform to narrowly focused, polarizing sound bites that put party philosophy before what used to be heralded as the common good. These ideas, more often than not, divide us rather than serve to bind us." - Author: Alan Siegel

Quotes About Changeling

"I lowered my phone, hope and anger warring for control of my emotions. As always, it was easier to let anger win. I turned back to Sylvester. "You threw him out?" I asked, in a low dangerous tone. "I was asleep for almost eleven hours, and you threw him out?""October, I told you we had asked him -""No. We asked him to leave so you can rest only works if I was asleep for four hours, or six, or maybe eight, although me sleeping for eight hours when Im not injured or drugged is such a perishingly rare event that he should have been sitting next to the bed with a bowl of popcorn. Do you understand me? I was poisoned. This stuff is poison to changelings, and the man I love wanted to be with me, and you sent him away. You kept him away from me for eleven hours, and you didnt tell him what was going on. I know you meant well. But can either of you tell me how in the hell you could believe that was right?" - Author: Seanan McGuire
