Louise Fitzhugh Quotes

"I feel theres a funny little hole in me that wasnt there before, like a splinter in your finger, but this is somewhere above my stomach."

LP Jacks Quotes

"Though science makes no use for poetry, poetry is enriched by science. Poetry "takes up" the scientific vision and re-expresses its truths, but always in forms which compel us to look beyond them to the total object which is telling its own story and standing in its own rights. In this the poet and the philosopher are one. Using language as the lever, they lift thought above the levels where words perplex and retard its flight, and leave it, at last, standing face to face with the object which reveals itself."

Bruce Campbell Quotes

"Any time a writer thinks he has all the answers to how someone should talk or react or end a scene, its a spontaneity-killer."

Eric Roth Quotes

"You can be as mad as a mad dog at the way things went, you can curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, you have to let go."

Json M Lee Quotes

"I, too, am a drum major for justice. I will continue to speak out-LOUD and PROUD- as long as gay youth are killing themselves because someone instilled in them they are not enough. Well, baby, youre more than enough. You were molded with the same care and precision as your heterosexual counterparts. You are unique. God has a special plan for you that only you can fulfill. Live your life!"

Alison Espach Quotes

"When it was real it wasnt funny. When you touched someone, they were always with you. When his mouth was on mine, we held the same breath in the same moment, and when he was naked, his body was covered in tiny black hairs that stuck to my clothes even after I washed them. He had sowly become a part of me and when he was cruel, or cold, or acted like we couldnt go on like this anymore it felt like he was ripping my limbs off, one at a time."

Quotes About Heart Shaped Leaves

"At night she began cooking things in the kitchen, things too strange to mention. She steeped oleander in boiling water, and the roots of a vine with white trumpet flowers that glowed like faces. She soaked a plant collected in moonlight from the neighbors fence, with little heart-shaped flowers. Then she cooked the water down; the whole kitchen smelled like green and rotting leaves. She threw out pounds of the wet-spinach green stuff into somebody elses dumpster. She wasnt talking to me anymore. She sat on the roof and talked to the moon." - Author: Janet Fitch

Quotes About Cuddling In The Winter

"I could pour my love in a coffee cup and the shivering and skeptical would beg me to drink it on a cold winter morning. And could they drink from my coffee cup? No, because its not like there is coffee in there, or even hot chocolate. My love is the only thing filling that cup, and everyone knows (well, everyone but Agatha knows) that you cant drink my love, you can only eat it. Thats because my love is frozen like 32 degrees spun around 180 degrees, translated to Inuit, shipped to Siberia, tutored in a gulag, and sent back to the US in the form of a Martini on the rocks by a bartender named Martin Rock." - Author: Jarod Kintz

Quotes About Chinese Lanterns

"...we could see the parapet of Ryougoku Bridge, arching above the waves that flickered in the faint mid-autumn twilight and against the sky, as though an immense black Chinese ink stroke had been brushed across it. The silhouettes of the traffic, horses and carriages soon faded into the vaporous mist, and now all that could be seen were the dots of reddish light from the passengers lanterns, rapidly passing to and fro in the darkness like small winter cherries." - Author: Ryūnosuke Akutagawa

Quotes About Worshipers

"With such luck as this, he rode the beast in the jaunty way that she deserved, back north, seemingly back from Mexico, pulling up finally at an outlying bar-ex-saloon (they had covered the old adobe face with knotty pine, substituted big stone matades for the cuspidors) and having brought her wrecklessly this far did not park her in the little parking lot but in front of the church next door. They had lifted that face too and neonized, but it did no good, they seemed to know they had no chance against an older god, their doors were closed. Thus one could join the pagan worshipers with a self-righteous shrug, through latticed doors." - Author: Douglas Woolf
