Emily McKay Quotes

"His presence makes me feel thin. Not model slender. But worn, like an old cotton housedress. Thin like a specimen pressed between two plates of glass. Like a bug squashed beneath the marching boot of a soldier.Thin and worn and silence like Ive never known.This is how I know he is not a Tick.They are as pitiable as they are inhuman. They are fear personified. Their emotions and minds given over to rage and hunger. They are all noise. He is none.If he is not a Tick, does that make him a Tock?"

Quotes About Old Flames Love

"My love is like to ice, and I to fire;How comes it then that this her cold so greatIs not dissolvd through my so hot desire,But harder grows the more I her entreat?Or how comes it that my exceeding heatIs not delayd by her heart-frozen cold;But that I burn much more in boiling sweat,And feel my flames augmented manifold!What more miraculous thing may be told,That fire, which all things melts, should harden ice;And ice, which is congeald with senseless cold,Should kindle fire by wonderful device!Such is the power of love in gentle mind,That it can alter all the course of kind." - Author: Edmund Spenser

Quotes About Sleep And Death

"I walked about the isle like a restless spectre, separated from all it loved, and miserable in the separation. When it became noon, and the sun rose higher, I lay down on the grass, and was overpowered by a deep sleep. I had been awake the whole of the preceding night, my nerves were agitated, and my eyes inflamed by watching and misery, The sleep into which I now sunk refreshed me; and when I awoke, I again felt as if I belonged to a race of human beings like myself, and I began to reflect upon what had passed with greater composure; yet still the words of the fiend rung in my ears like a death-knell, they appeared like a dream, yet distinct and oppressive as a reality." - Author: Mary Shelley

Quotes About Enjoying The Moment

"Even when it isnt going well, knitting can be deeply spiritual. Knitting sets goals that you can meet.

I just stare at him. I dont like knitting. I LOVE knitting. I dont know what could have possible led him to think that Im not enjoying myself. The cursing? The crying? The forteen sheets of shredded graph paper? Knittong is like a marriage (I tell him) and you dont just trash the whole thing because there are bad moments." - Author: Stephanie Pearl McPhee
