"Im vile and perverted. Im obsessed and deranged.Ive existed for years but very little has changed.Im the tool of the government and industry too.For Im destined to rule and regulate you.You may think Im pernicious, but you cant look away.Ill make you think Im delicious with the stuff that I say.Im the best you can get... have you guessed me yet?Im the slime oozing out of your TV set...."

Quotes About Brisbane City

"But this month is all about CITY OF JASMINE which I hope you already have in your hot little hands. My favorite review snippet? KIRKUS REVIEWS said its "part screwball comedy". I cant tell you how much time I spent with Carole Lombard and William Powell and Irene Dunne when I was writing it. I adore the 30s comedies for their light-hearted take on relationships and adventure—and the glamorous settings and occasional dash of intrigue only heighten the magic. (Did you know that Nicholas Brisbane from my Lady Julia series was named for THE THIN MANs Nick Charles? And apologies to Dashiell Hammett, but I fell in love with the film long before I read the book and appreciated how much it had been lightened in the adaptation!) So when youre reading CITY OF JASMINE, give some thought to who youd like to see playing Evie and Gabriel—Id love to hear who youd cast in your own production." - Author: Deanna Raybourn

Quotes About Looking For New Love

"Leaning against my car after changing the oil,I hold my black hands out and stare into themas if they were the faces of my children lookingat the winter moon and thinking of the snowthat will erase everything before they wake. In the garage, my wife comes behind meand slides her hands beneath my soiled shirt.Pressing her face between my shoulder blades,she mumbles something, and soon we are laughing,wrestling like children among piles of old rags,towels that unravel endlessly, torn sheets,work shirts from twenty years ago when I stoodin the door of a machine shop, grease blackened,and Kansas lay before me blazing with new snow,a future of flat land, white skies, and sunlight.After making love, we lie on the abandonedmattress and stare at our pale winter bodiessprawling in the half-light. She touches her belly,the scar of our last child, and the black printsof my hand along her hips and thighs." - Author: B.H. Fairchild

Quotes About Socialisation

"The principal advantages of living in your stations section house is that it is cheap, close to work and its not your parents flat.

Quotes About Flay

"I felt as though the skin had been peeled away from half of my body. Half my face had been peeled away, and everybody would stare in horror for the rest of my life. Or they would stare at the other half, at the half still intact; I could see them smiling, pretending that the flayed half wasnt there, and talking to the half that was. And I could hear my self screaming at them, I could see myself thrusting my hideous side right up into their unmarred faces to make them properly horrified. I was pretty! I was whole! I was sunny, lively little girl! Look, look at what they did to me! But whatever side they looked at, I would always be screaming, Look at the other! Why dont you look at the other! Thats what I thought about in the hospital at night. However they look at me, however they talk to me, however they try to comfort me, I will always be this half-flayed thing. I will never be young, I will never be kind or at peace or in love, and I will hate them all my life." - Author: Philip Roth
