Maxine Hong Kingston Quotes

"The villagers were speeding up the circling of events because she was too shortsighted to see that her infidelity had already harmed the village, the waves of consequences would return unpredictably, sometimes in disguise, as now, to hurt her. This roundness had to be made coin-sized so that she would see is circumference: punish her at the birth of her baby. Awaken her to the inexorable. People who refused fatalism because they could invent small resources insisted on culpability. Deny accidents and wrest fault from the stars."

Hilary T Smith Quotes

"My head whips back from the impact and my ribs twang like a dropped guitar. The sky spins above me like a penny. My bike has dematerialized, and my iPod is strewn about the intersection in a million glittering pieces. When I try to move, ten different parts of my body light up at once, like someones pressing all the buttons at an anatomy exhibit. The magnolia tree blows me a kiss of perfumed air, and I cant decide if what Im feeling is incredible bliss of excruciating pain. This might just be the greatest moment of my life. Its possible. And if it is, I dont want to waste it lying around in the middle of the road. For a single, golden second I breathe galaxies."
