Martha Stout Quotes

"-If I somehow possessed a set of videotapes that contained all the most significant events of your childhood, in their entirety, would you want to see them?-Absolutely. Right this very second.-But why? Dont you think some of the tapes would be very sad?-Most of them, yes. But if I could see them, then I could have them in my brain like regular memories-horrible memories, yes, but regular memories, not sinister little ghosts in my head that pop out of some part of me I dont even know, and take the rest of me away. Do you know what I mean?-I think so, If you have to remeber, youd rather do it in the front of your brain than in the back."

What you say? Her English wasnt too good. Now Im seventy-three and shes just turned seventy. Would you like to drink coffee? she asked me today, smiling. Im really not that thirsty.What?

Quotes About Roman Ruins

"The whole underneath of Paris was an ant nest, Metro tunnels, sewer shafts, catacombs, mines, cemeteries. Shed been down in the city of bones where skulls and femurs rose in yellowing walls. Right down there, win the square before them. through a dinky little entrance, were the Roman ruins like honeycomb. The trains went under the river. There were tunnels people had forgotten about. It was a wonder Paris stood up at all. The bit you saw was only half of it. Her skin burned, thinking of it. The Hunchback knew. Up here in the tower of Notre Dame he saw how it was. Now and then, with the bells rattling his bones, he saw it like God saw it -- inside, outside, above and under -- just for a moment. The rest of the time he went back to hurting and waiting like Scully out there crying in the wind." - Author: Tim Winton

"Doar o data spuse, ca o surpriza manifestata tarziu si aproape cu ciuda: - M-am uitat la tine, de departe, cand ieseam din apa. Esti cea mai frumoasa femeie de pe plaja.- Nu sunt prea multe.- Ba nu! Chiar daca s-ar face un import de cateva mii - cine stie de unde? -, n-ar fi treaba usoara! - distanta de la medie pana la tine e mult prea mare ca sa te poata egala vreuna.El relua, cu o ingrijorare teoretica: - Trebuie sa ma port mai atent cu tine. Cateodata uit ca nu se face sa fii aruncata. Nu, zau, ar fi grozav de multi barbati care ar dori sa-mi ia locul. Tu nu te miri ca ma preferi pe mine?" - Author: Radu Tudoran

Quotes About Branches Of Life

"Theres an enormous difference between being a story writer and being a regular person. As a person, its your duty to stay on a straight and even keel, not to break down blubbering in the streets, not to pull rude drivers from their cars, not to swing from the branches of trees. But as a writer its your duty to lie and to view everything in life, however outrageous, as an interesting possibility. You may need to be ruthless or amoral in your writing to be original. Telling a story straight from real life is only being a reporter, not a creator. You have to make your story bigger, better, more magical, more meaningful than life is, no matter how special or wonderful in real life the moment may have been." - Author: Rick Bass

Quotes About Libertine

"He smiled, setting his forehead to hers. "you are very bad for me. I am trying to turn over a new leaf--I am trying to be more gentlemanly." "But what if I want you to stay a rake?" she teased, her fingers trailing down his neck and chest, fingering the buttons on his waistcoat. "A libertine, even?" she slipped one fastening from its seat and he grabbed her errant hand, bringing it to his lips for a swift kiss. "Callie," he said, his voice thick with warning as she set her free hand to the second button on his coat. "What if I want the rogue, Gabriel?" the question was soft and sweet. "What are you saying?"She kissed across the firm square line of his jaw and whispered to him, shyness in her shaking voice, "Take me to bed, Gabriel.

Quotes About Not Being Considered

"A human being is spirit. But what is spirit? Spirit is the self. But what is the self? The self is a relation that relates itself to itself or is the relations relating itself to itself in the relation; the self is not the relation but is the relations relating itself to itself. A human being is a synthesis of the infinite and the finite, of the temporal and the eternal, of freedom and necessity, in short, a synthesis. A synthesis is a relation between two. Considered in this way a human being is still not a self.... In the relation between two, the relation is the third as a negative unity, and the two relate to the relation and in the relation to the relation; thus under the qualification of the psychical the relation between the psychical and the physical is a relation. If, however, the relation relates itself to itself, this relation is the positive third, and this is the self." - Author: Søren Kierkegaard
