Quotes About Traditional Dress

"She had a taste for sugar, however, and this meant that a doughnut or a cake might follow the sandwich. She was a traditionally built lady, after all, and she did not have to worry about dress size, unlike those poor, neurotic people who were always looking in mirrors and thinking that they were too big. What was too big, anyway? Who was to tell another person what size they should be? It was a form of dictatorship, by the thin, and she was not having any of it. If these thin people became any more insistent, then the more generously sized people would just have to sit on them. Yes, that would teach them! Hah!" - Author: Alexander McCall Smith

Quotes About Putter

"If for a moment you are inclined to regard these taluses as mere draggled, chaotic dumps, climb to the top of one of them, and run down without any haggling, puttering hesitation, boldly jumping from boulder to boulder with even speed. You will then find your feet playing a tune, and quickly discover the music and poetry of these magnificent rock piles -- a fine lesson; and all Natures wildness tells the same story -- the shocks and outbursts of earthquakes, volcanoes, geysers, roaring, thundering waves and floods, the silent uprush of sap in plants, storms of every sort -- each and all are the orderly beauty-making love-beats of Natures heart." - Author: John Muir

Quotes About Walking Sticks

"in his land, owing to the absence of settees and sofas of all sorts, the king, chiefs, and great people generally, were in the custom of fattening some of the lower orders for ottomans; and to furnish a house comfortably in that respect, you had only to buy up eight or ten lazy fellows, and lay them round in the piers and alcoves. Besides, it was very convenient on an excursion; much better than those garden-chairs which are convertible into walking-sticks; upon occasion, a chief calling his attendant, and desiring him to make a settee of himself under a spreading tree, perhaps in some damp marshy place." - Author: Herman Melville

Quotes About Spontaneous

"The extracellular genesis of cells in animals seemed to me, ever since the publication of the cell theory [of Schwann], just as unlikely as the spontaneous generation of organisms. These doubts produced my observations on the multiplication of blood cells by division in bird and mammalian embryos and on the division of muscle bundles in frog larvae. Since then I have continued these observations in frog larvae, where it is possible to follow the history of tissues back to segmentation." - Author: Robert Remak

Quotes About Jorg

Quotes About Nonfiction And Fiction

"Writers imagine that they cull stories from the world. Im beginning to believe that vanity makes them think so. That its actually the other way around. Stories cull writers from the world. Stories reveal themselves to us. The public narrative, the private narrative - they colonize us. They commission us. They insist on being told. Fiction and nonfiction are only different techniques of story telling. For reasons that I dont fully understand, fiction dances out of me, and nonfiction is wrenched out by the aching, broken world I wake up to every morning." - Author: Arundhati Roy

Quotes About Hargreaves

"When I look at my own children, Mrs Hargreaves, I think… I think I know what childhoods for. Its to give us a bank of happy memories against future suffering. So when sadness comes, at least you can remember what it was to be happy." - Author: John Logan

Quotes About Joker Face

"I stare at his forearms. I can make out a naked woman with a snake going up her vagina. Shes holding a knife, slitting her own throat. There are three playing cards on the back of his right hand: the Queen of Spades, the Jack of Hearts and the Joker. Red flames lick his elbow.Theres a watch tattooed on his left wrist with ‘Fuck Time inscribed on its face. Fuck oclock.Hes not that tall, but his body is carefully cut. The lines of his face, his cheekbones and jaw, are sharp and precise. I can see the tufts of his blond underarm hairs and under them the ladder of his ribs. Hes beautiful, in the way that a knife is beautiful." - Author: Kirsty Eagar
