Mary Ruefle Quotes

"A boy from Brooklyn used to cruise on summer nights.As soon as hed hit sixty hed hold his hand out the window,cupping it around the wind. Hed been assuredthis is exactly how a womans breast feels when you putyour hand around it and apply a little pressure. Now he knew,and he loved it. Night after night, again and again, untilthe weather grew cold and he had to roll the window up.For many years afterwards he was perpetually attemptingto soar. One winters night, holding his wifes breastin his hand, he closed his eyes and wanted to weep.He loved her, but it was the wind he imagined now.As he grew older, he loved the word etcetera and refusedto abbreviate it. He loved sweet white butter. He oftenpretended to be playing the organ. On one of his last mornings,he noticed the shape of his face molded in the pillow.He shook it out, but the next morning it reappeared."

Gustav Meyrink Quotes

"Las causas no podemos reconocerlas nunca, todo lo que percibimos son los efectos. Lo que identificamos como causa en realidad no es más que un… presagio. Si suelto este lápiz, se caerá al suelo. Que el hecho de soltarlo constituya la causa de la caída puede creerlo un estudiante, pero yo no. Soltarlo es sencillamente el presagio infalible de la caída."

Quotes About Fallen Friends

"Inside the narrow skull of the miner pinned beneath the fallen timber, there lives a world. Parents, friends, a home, the hot soup of evening, songs sung on feast days, loving kindness and anger, perhaps even a social consciousness and a great universal love, inhabit that skull. By what are we to measure the value of a man? His ancestor once drew a reindeer on the wall of a cave; and two hundred thousand years later that gesture still radiates. It stirs us, prolongs itself in us. Mans gestures are an eternal spring. Though we [may] die for it, we shall bring up that miner from his shaft. Solitary he may be, universal he surely is." - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Quotes About Subway

"Goodwill shouldnt be just for men. It should also apply to women and children, and all animals, even the yucky ones like subway rats. Id even extend the goodwill not just to living creatures but to the dearly departed, and if we include them, we might as well include the undead, those supposedly mythic beings like vampires, and if theyre in, then so are elves, fairies, and gnomes. Heck, since were already being so generous in our big group hug, why not also embrace those supposedly inanimate objects like dolls and stuffed animals (special shout-out to my Ariel mermaid, who presides over the shabby chic flower power pillow on my bed - love you, girl!). Im sure Santa would agree. Goodwill to all." - Author: Rachel Cohn

Quotes About Complimenting Each Other

"Hes kissing me, quick desperate kisses, like Im something he needs to live; and Im kissing him back, crazy with the ache I feel for him, trying to kiss him better, trying to fix him. Im touching his face, feeling the roughness of his beard, the wet of his tears, feeling the tremors passing through his body, hearing his ragged breathing. And each kiss is a failure. A failed attempt to escape from all thats happening. And I only know this when he slows, drawing it out, letting me taste regret, letting things linger. He pulls away, and Im saying "Dont, dont, dont", trying to bring him back, kissing his face. But Ive lost him." - Author: Kirsty Eagar

Quotes About Avoiding Risk

"People play small for lots of reasons, but at the core of them all is fear. Playing small means playing safe—avoiding risk, failure, criticism, and the list goes on.

Quotes About Pregnancy Pains

"Modern man has a need for simplification that tends to find its expression one way or another. And this artificial monotony which he takes pains to create, this monotony which is slowly taking over the world, this monotony is the sign of our greatness. It bears the mark of a certain will-power, the will to utility; it is the expression of utility, a law that governs all our modern activity: the Law of Utility." - Author: Blaise Cendrars

Quotes About Ear Gauges

"Reading, for me, is like this: consumptive, pleasing, calming, as much as edifying. Its how I feel after a good dinner. Thats why I do it so often: It feels wonderful. The book is mind and I insert myself into it, cover it entire, ear my way through every last slash and dot. Thats something you can do with a book, unlike television or movies or the Internet. You can eat it, or mark it, like a dog does on a hydrant." - Author: Tara Bray Smith

Quotes About Wondered

"He absent-mindedly fondled his crotch and then whipped his hand away.No masturbation,he suddenly decided.He tried to think about this but sustained logical thought on one topic was difficult and unnecessary.No,i am not wasting any semen on Madna.It was an impulse,but he felt that he should record it.In the diary under that date,he wrote,From today no masturbation.Test your will,you bastard. Then he wondered at his bravado.No masturbation at all?That was impossible." - Author: Upamanyu Chatterjee
