Diletta Brizzi Quotes

"Rinacque con nuove fattezze e un nuovo nome e dallunione di astuzia e seduzione non poteva che nascere lui, la malizia, il piacere di un istante raggiunto tramite mezzi sottili e subdoli, ma anche lamore vissuto secondo la propria volontà andando contro ogni dogma, umano o divino, imposto con la paura. Il Principe dei peccatori della carne e degli innamorati più sfrenati e sregolati, Sytry."

Quotes About Older Brothers And Younger Sisters

"Lola writes in her notebook: Leaf-fleas are even worse. Someone said, They dont bite people, because people dont have leaves. Lola writes, When the sun is beating down, they bite everything, even the wind. And we all have leaves. Leaves fall off when you stop growing, because childhood is all gone. And they grow back when you shrivel up, because love is all gone. Leaves spring up at will, writes Lola, just like tall grass. Two or three children in the village dont have any leaves, and those have a big childhood. A child like that is an only child, because it has a father and a mother who have been to school. The leaf-fleas turn older children into younger ones - a four-year-old into a three-year-old, a three-year-old into a one-year-old. Even a six-months-old, writes Lola, and even a newborn. And the more little brothers and sisters the leaf-fleas make, the smaller the childhood becomes." - Author: Herta M

Quotes About Binge Eating

"And when, after fifteen years of bingeing, barfing, starving, needles and tubes and terror and rage, and medical crises and personal failure and loss after loss - when, after all this, you are in your early twenties and staring down a vastly abbreviated life expectancy, and the eating disorder still takes up half your body, half your brain, with its invisible eroding force, when you have spent the majority of your life sick, when you do not yet know what it means to be well, or normal, when you doubt that those words even have meaning anymore, there are still no answers. You will die young, and you have no way to make sense of that fact.You have this: You are thin." - Author: Marya Hornbacher

Quotes About Building An Ark

"He stares at the cellist, and feels himself relax as the music seeps into him. He watches as the cellists hair smoothes itself out, his beard disappears. A dirty tuxedo becomes clean, shoes polished bright as mirrors...The building behind the cellist repairs itself. The scars of bullets and shrapnel are covered by plaster and paint, and windows reassemble, clarify and sparkle as the sun reflects off glass. The cobblestones of the road set themselves straight. Around him people stand up taller, their faces put on weight and colour. Clothes gain lost thread, brighten, smooth out their wrinkles. Kenan watches as his city heals itself around him. The cellist continues to play..." - Author: Steven Galloway

Quotes About Vidia

"Dalle tende a cono si levava il concerto dei pesanti respiri addormentati. Cosa fosse quel poter chiudere gli occhi, perdere coscienza di sé, affondare in un vuoto delle proprie ore, e poi svegliandosi ritrovarsi eguale a prima, a riannodare i fili della propria vita, Agilulfo non lo poteva sapere e la sua invidia per la facoltà di dormire propria delle persone esistenti era uninvidia vaga, come di qualcosa che non si sa nemmeno concepire." - Author: Italo Calvino
