Elizabeth Berg Quotes

"I was downstairs, reading."" Now?" I strained to see her face. She was smiling, it appeared."Yes, now," she said. "Its nice, sometimes, to read in the middle of the night. The sky is so dark and soft-looking outside the window, all the stars out. You have just on light on, you know, and it seems to pour onto the page. Makes the book seem better. You are this little island, just up alone with a book. And you heard the night sounds of the house...Its so interesting to me, that sound. Time. The measure of it."

Frederick Hamilton Quotes

"Apropos of Eskimo, I once heard a missionary describe the extraordinary difficulty he had found in translating the Bible into Eskimo. It was useless to talk of corn or wine to a people who did not know even what they meant, so he had to use equivalents within their powers of comprehension. Thus in the Eskimo version of the Scriptures the miracle of Cana of Galilee is described as turning the water into blubber; the 8th verse of the 5th chapter of the First Epistle of St. Peter ran: ‘Your adversary the devil, as a roaring Polar bear walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. In the same way ‘A land flowing with milk and honey became ‘A land flowing with whales blubber, and throughout the New Testament the words ‘Lamb of God had to be translated ‘little Seal of God, as the nearest possible equivalent. The missionary added that his converts had the lowest opinion of Jonah for not having utilised his exceptional opportunities by killing and eating the whale."

Quotes About Wearing Black

"Gerard Manley Hopkins somewhere describes how he mesmerized a duck by drawing a line of chalk out in front of it. Think of me as the duck; the chalk, softly wearing itself away against the tiny pebbles embedded in the corporate concrete, is Joyces forward-luring rough-smooth voice on the cassettes she gives me. Or, to substitute another image, since one is hardly sufficient in Joyces case, when I let myself really enter her tape, when I let it surround me, it is as if Im sunk into the pond of what she is saying, as if Im some kind of patient, cruising amphibian, drifting in black water, entirely submerged except for my eyes, which blink every so often. Each word comes floating up to me like a thick, healthy lily pad and brushes past my head." - Author: Nicholson Baker

Quotes About Cauldron

"What, indeed, is a New Yorker? Is he Jew or Irish? Is he English or German? Is he Russian or Polish? He may be something of all these, and yet he is wholly none of them. Something has been added to him which he had not had before. he is endowed with a briskness and an invention often alien to his blood. He is quicker in his movement, less trammeled in his judgement...The change he undergoes is unmistakeable, New York, indeed, resembles a magic cauldron. Those who are cast into it are born again." - Author: Charles Whibley

Quotes About Thougth

"Going home in the trolley, Francie held the shoebox in her lap because Mama had no lap now. Francie thought deep thoughts during her ride. If what Granma Mary Rommely said is true, then it must be that no one ever dies, really. Papa is gone, but hes still here in many ways. Hes here in Neeley who looks just like him and in Mama who knew him so long. Hes here in his mother who began him and who is still living. Maybe I will have a boy some day who looks like Papa and has all of Papas good without the drinking. And that boy will have a boy. And that boy will have a boy. It might be there is no real death. Her thougths went to McGarrity. No one would ever believe there was any part of Papa in him." - Author: Betty Smith
