Eileen Wilks Quotes

"I need to check your ankle." "Ask." "If you object, I—" "Giving me a chance to object is not the same as asking permission. Youre used to telling people what to do. That works with those guards youre in charge of. You arent in charge of me. You have to ask." One corner of his mouth turned up. "Its more efficient my way." "If your primary goal in life is efficiency, you should just die." That startled him. His head actually jerked back. "What?" "The most efficient way to live a life is to die a couple seconds after youre born. Pfft. Done." She dusted her hands to demonstrate that. "Its too late for you to achieve optimal efficiency, but you could still . . ."

David Morrell Quotes

"So they spread the paintings on the lawn, and the boy explained each of them. "This is the school, and this is the playground, and these are my friends." He stared at the paintings for a long time and then shook his head in discouragement. "In my mind, they were a whole lot better."Isnt that the truth? Every morning, I go to my desk and reread yesterdays pages, only to be discouraged that the prose isnt as good as it seemed during the excitement of composition. In my mind, it was a whole lot better.Dont give in to doubt. Never be discouraged if your first draft isnt what you thought it would be. Given skill and a story that compels you, muster your determination and make whats on the page closer to what you have in your mind."

Quotes About A Generous Man

"I had never met these solicitors and never met Divney but they were really all working for me and my father had paid in cash for these arrangements before he died. When I was younger I thought he was a generous man to do that for a boy he did not know well." - Author: Flann OBrien

Quotes About Potato Salad

"Potato salad in the South is nothing less than the principal smuggler of cholesterol into the festive, careless heart. It is pure poison beneath the facade of bland puritan propriety. It is the food of choice at any food banquet of smiling relatives who celebrate tacitly among themselves the dark twining of two of their promising youth." - Author: Padgett Powell

Quotes About Watering The Garden

"After the first glass of absinthe you see things as you wish they were. After the second you see them as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world. I mean disassociated. Take a top hat. You think you see it as it really is. But you dont because you associate it with other things and ideas.If you had never heard of one before, and suddenly saw it alone, youd be frightened, or youd laugh. That is the effect absinthe has, and that is why it drives men mad. Three nights I sat up all night drinking absinthe, and thinking that I was singularly clear-headed and sane. The waiter came in and began watering the sawdust.The most wonderful flowers, tulips, lilies and roses, sprang up, and made a garden in the cafe. "Dont you see them?" I said to him. "Mais non, monsieur, il ny a rien." - Author: Oscar Wilde

Quotes About Si Beavers

"Here is the essence of mankinds creative genius: not the edifices of civilization nor the bang-flash weapons which can end it, but the words which fertilize new concepts like spermatoza attacking an ovum. It might be argued that the Siamese-twin infants of word/idea are the only contribution the human species can, will, or should make to the reveling cosmos. (Yes, our DNA is unique, but so is a salamanders. Yes, we construct artifacts, but so have species ranging from beavers to the architecture ants... Yes, we weave real fabric things from the dreamstuff of mathematics, but the universe is hardwired with arithmetic. Scratch a circle and pi peeps out. Enter a new solar system and Tycho Brahes formulae lie waiting under the black velvet cloak of space/time. But where has the universe hidden a word under its outer layer of biology, geometry, or insensate rock?)" - Author: Dan Simmons

Quotes About Your Mom Dying

"Dont go far off, not even for a day,because I dont know how to say it - a day is longand I will be waiting for you, as inan empty station when the trains areparked off somewhere else, asleep.Dont leave me, even for an hour, because thenthe little drops of anguish will all run together,the smoke that roams looking for a home will driftinto me, choking my lost heart.Oh, may your silhouette never dissolveon the beach, may your eyelids never flutterinto the empty distance. Dont LEAVE me fora second, my dearest, because in that moment youllhave gone so far Ill wander mazilyover all the earth, asking, will youcome back? Will you leave me here, dying?" - Author: Pablo Neruda

Quotes About Following Through

"Wait—no, not drifting. Following us. "We have an audience," I said to Reth, nodding at the clusters of flying insects."I suppose we cant make the Dark Queen any angrier with us than she already is," he said, then his perfect mouth moved, silently forming words, and he gracefully waved his hands through the air in a semicircle. The warm breeze suddenly froze, and I saw frost eat across the nearest butterflies wings. They stopped midair, then dropped to the ground with tiny clinking noises, frozen solid.A serene smile spread across Reths face. "Ive always disliked insects.""If the whole being-a-faerie thing doesnt work out for you, you definitely have a future in pest control." - Author: Kiersten White

Quotes About Colds

"They Lied"They lied, my friend. They injected their despair beneath your skin like a parasitic insect laying eggs in the body of another species.Nothing they said is true,everything about you is honorable. Every porethat opens and closes—a multitudealong the expanse of your body, thefollicles from which hair sproutsemerging again and again like spiders flossspun from a limitless source.You wait, huddled. Or carry yourself fromplace to place like a burden. As ifyou would stash yourself, if you could,in a bus station locker, or somewhere smaller.You dont really hope, butyou cant give it up completely.Some stubborn nuggetis lodged like a bullet in bone.Though each breath stings with the coldsuck of it, you can know the truth.Every cell of your body vibrates with its own intelligence.Every atom is pure." - Author: Ellen Bass
