Helen Cross Quotes

"I thought how money was like food. The smell, the way it came in portions, how badly you needed it. How hungry you got for it, that acidic longing which burned and sickened in your stomach.

Quotes About Pranksters

"For over a century, an evolving microcosm of Anthropologys turbulent history has hidden behind the staid façade of the American Museum of Natural History. From an insiders perspective, the well-known ethnologist Stan Freed engagingly introduces us to an amazing cast of explorers, eccentrics, idealists, pranksters and forbidding intellectual - an unlikely mix that played a key role in establishing the science of Anthropology as we know it today." - Author: Ian Tattersall

Quotes About Linguaggio

"Vive nel verde che sbuca tra la neve, vive negli steli fruscianti del morente grano dautunno, vive dove i morti vengono per un bacio, e i vivi inviano loro preghiere. Vive nel luogo in cui si fa il linguaggio. Vive di poesia e percussione e canto. Vive di quarti di tono e di note di passaggio, e in una cantata, in una sestina, nei blues. E lattimo che precede lispirazione che ci abbaglia. Vive in un luogo lontano che si apre un varco verso il nostro mondo." - Author: Clarissa Pinkola Estés

Quotes About Giverny

"She quickly realized she had an affinity for the older books and their muted scents of past dinners and foreign countries, the tea and chocolate stains coloring the phrases. You could never be certain what you would find in a book that has spent time with someone else. As she has rifled through the pages looking for defects, she had discovered an entrance ticket to Giverny, a receipt for thirteen bottles of champagne, a to-do list that included, along with groceries and dry cleaning, the simple reminder, buy a gun. Bits of life tucked like stowaways in between the chapters. Sometimes she couldnt decide which story she was most drawn to." - Author: Erica Bauermeister

Quotes About Unhappy Endings

"The making of miracles to edification was as ardently admired by pious Victorians as it was sternly discouraged by Jesus of Nazareth. Not that the Victorians were unique in this respect. Modern writers also indulge in edifying miracles though they generally prefer to use them to procure unhappy endings, by which piece of thaumaturgy they win the title of realists." - Author: Dorothy L. Sayers

Quotes About The English People

"The behaviour of the English people I had run into was making it very difficult to nail down a theory that the reason my trip so far had been such a bizarre success, was that Irish people were crazy. One Englishman had spent a morning on the telephone trying to organise a helicopter to take me out to an island, when a boat was leaving only a few yards away, and here was another, making a two-hour round trip for no reason other than to lend a helping hand. Two of the more eccentric pieces of behaviour hadnt been performed by the Irish, but by my fellow countrymen. However, both Andy and Tony had embraced wholeheartedly a love of the Irish way of living life." - Author: Tony Hawks
