Quotes About Thought You Knew Someone

"Wed walk home together in the foggy summer night and Id tell her about sex; the good stuff, like how it could be warm and exciting--it took you away--and the not-so-good things, like how once you showed someone that part of yourself, you had to trust them one thousand percent and anything could happen. Someone you thought you knew could change and suddenly not want you, suddenly decide you made a better story than a girlfriend. Or how sometimes you might think you wanted to do it and then halfway through or afterward realize no, you just wanted the company, really; you wanted someone to choose you, and the sex part itself was like a trade-off, something you felt like you had to give to get the other part. Id tell her that and help her decide. Id be a friend." - Author: Sara Zarr

Quotes About Lavoro

"« -...sono andato nella Londra del 1610 e ho scoperto che Shakespeare era solo un attore con un secondo lavoro potenzialmente imbarazzante come ricettatore a Stratford. Nulla di strano che lo tenesse nascosto - lo farebbe chiunque.-Chi li ha scritti allora? Bacon? Marlowe?-No, è insorto un problemino. Vedi, nessuno ha mai sentito parlare di quelle opere, figuriamoci averle scritte.Non capivo.-Cosa vuoi dire? Non ci sono?-Proprio così. Non esistono. Non sono mai state scritte. Né da lui, né da altri.-Scusate- si intromise Landen, che ne aveva abbastanza -ma abbiamo visto il Riccardo III sei settimane fa.-Certo- disse mio padre -Il tempo è scardinato alla grande. Naturalmente bisognava intervenire. Ho portato con me una copia delle opere complete e le ho date allattore Shakespeare nel 1592 perché le distribuisse secondo uno schema preciso. Questo soddisfa la tua domanda? »" - Author: Jasper Fforde

Quotes About Temptation And Lust

"To evade such temptations is the first duty of the poet. For as the ear is the antechamber to the soul, poetry can adulterate and destroy more surely then lust or gunpowder. The poets, then, is the highest office of all. His words reach where others fall short. A silly song of Shakespeares has done more for the poor and the wicked than all the preachers and philanthropists in the world." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Elizabeth And Darcy

"The basis of my own addiction, I know, is my simple human need for Darcy to get off with Elizabeth. Tom says football guru Nick Hornby says in his book that mens obsession with football is not vicarious. The testosterone-crazed fans do not wish themselves on the pitch, claims Hornby, instead seeing their team as their chosen representatives, rather like parliament. That is precisely my feeling about Darcy and Elizabeth. They are my chosen representatives in the field of shagging, or, rather, courtship. I do not, however, wish to see any actual goals. I would hate to see Darcy and Elizabeth in bed, smoking a cigarette afterwards. That would be unnatural and wrong and I would quickly lose interest." - Author: Helen Fielding

Quotes About Nights

BE AMOROUS! she exhorted one night and, another night, BE MYSTERIOUS! Some nights later, she scribbled: WHEN YOU BEGIN TO THINK, YOU LOSE THE POINT." - Author: Angela Carter

Quotes About Cecilia

"Hicimos una parada para comprar licor, hielo y cigarrillos, luego regresamos al apartamento. Su única copa había puesto a Cecilia soltando risas y hablando sin parar. Ahora estaba explicándonos que los animales también tenían alma. Nadie se lo discutió. Era posible, lo sabíamos. De lo que no estábamos tan seguros era de si la teníamos nosotros." - Author: Charles Bukowski
