Stephanie Dowrick Quotes

"[...] as I have seen with other people whose sense of their work is vocational rather than pragmatic, my desire to write, to understand things at a depth I can reach in no other way, pushes me to write and go on writing, even when my wants—for an easier or more sociable life, or one less exposed and fraught—are certainly well known to my rational mind. p.293"

Quotes About Light From Within

"You are your mothers trueborn son of Lannister.""Am I?" the dwarf replied, sardonic. "Do tell my lord father. My mother died birthing me, and hes never been sure.""I dont even know who my mother was," Jon said. "Some woman, no doubt. Most of them are." He favored Jon with a rueful grin. "Remember this, boy. All dwarfs may be bastards, yet not all bastards need be dwarfs."And with that he turned and sauntered back into the feast, whistling a tune. When he opened the door, the light from within threw his shadow clear across the yard, and for just a moment Tyrion Lannister stood tall as a king." - Author: George R.R. Martin

Quotes About Mafalda

"Oliver liked to keep the windows and shutters wide open in the afternoon, with just the swelling sheer curtains between us and life beyond, because it was a crime to block away so much sunlight and keep such a landscape from view, especially when you didnt have it all life long, he said. Then the rolling fields of the valley leading up to the hills seemed to sit in a rising mist of olive green: sunflowers, grapevines, swatches of lavender, and those squat and humble olive trees stooping like gnarled, aged scarecrows gawking through our window as we lay naked on my bed, the smell of his sweat, which was the smell of my sweat, and next to me my man-woman whose man-woman I was, and all around us Mafaldas chamomile-scented laundry detergent, which was the torrid afternoon world of our house." - Author: André Aciman

Quotes About Monkey Mind

"Naysayers at their polite best chided the rewilders for romanticizing the past; at their sniping worst, for tempting a Jurassic Park disaster. To these the rewilders quietly voiced a sad and stinging reply. The most dangerous experiment is already underway. The future most to be feared is the one now dictated by the status quo. In vanquishing our most fearsome beasts from the modern world, we have released worse monsters from the compound. They come in disarmingly meek and insidious forms, in chewing plagues of hoofed beasts and sweeping hordes of rats and cats and second-order predators. They come in the form of denuded seascapes and barren forests, ruled by jellyfish and urchins, killer deer and sociopathic monkeys. They come as haunting demons of the human mind. In conquering the fearsome beasts, the conquerors had unwittingly orphaned themselves." - Author: William Stolzenburg

Quotes About Itineraries

"Nowhere was the airports charm more concentrated than on the screens placed at intervals across the terminal which announced, in deliberately workmanlike fonts, the itineraries of aircraft about to take to the skies. These screens implied a feeling of infinite and immediate possibility: they suggested the ease with which we might impulsively approach a ticket desk and, within a few hours, embark for a country where the call to prayer rang out over shuttered whitewashed houses, where we understood nothing of the language and where no one knew our identities. The lack of detail about the destinations served only to stir unfocused images of nostalgia and longing: Tel Aviv, Tripoli, St Petersburg, Miami, Muscat via Abu Dhabi, Algiers, Grand Cayman via Nassau … all of these promises of alternative lives, to which we might appeal at moments of claustrophobia and stagnation." - Author: Alain de Botton

Quotes About Manufacturing Quality

"The woman who thinks she can choose femininity, can toy with it like the social drinker toys with wine - well, shes asking for it, asking to be undone, devoured, asking to spend her life perpetrating a new fraud, manufacturing a new fake identity, only this time its her equality thats fake." - Author: Rachel Cusk

Quotes About Genre Conventions

"It does no good to run. And it does no good to hide. But I know what its like. Your brain shuts down, and you follow your instincts. Or, at least, you think you do. But you know what youre really doing? When you flee through the night, or crawl into your little bolt-hole? You know whats really guiding you? Controlling you? Pushing you on? Genre conventions." - Author: Mike Carey and Peter Gross

Quotes About Used And Abused

"One area where this misperception has hit hard has been research on child sexual abuse. Despite an explosion of research on the issue over recent decades, most research reported in the literature is focused on girls. There is significantly less attention given to boys, and, in fact, prior to 1980 it is difficult to find any research involving males who have been sexually abused." - Author: Jan L. Frayne

Quotes About Incurable Diseases

"We are born with two incurable diseases, life, from which we die, and hope, which says maybe death isnt the end." - Author: Andrew M. Greeley
