Suzannah Dunn Quotes

"...some days [Thomas] and I had almost no time at all, but still we did it. Knowingly, unapologetically, quick in the pursuit of something that seemed quite separate from ourselves. I had to have him inside me every day; a missed day was a missing day, the world crumpled. My blood was different in my veins now, luxuriously silty, peppered and precious. My body was a different body and knew what it needed. There was a sense of fit between us: not merely physical, although there definitely was that. I didnt know how I lived the minutes when he wasnt inside me, when there was no glittery rub of him inside me. I crammed him into me, hauled him in. My urgency shocked and delighted me."

Quotes About Eve Paradise Lost

"Kessler depicts his developing intimacy with a handful of dairy goats and offers an enviable glimpse of the pastoral good life. Yet he also cautions, "Wherever the notion of paradise exists, so does the idea that it was lost. Paradise is always in the past." The title Goat Song is a literal rendering of the Greek word traghoudhia, tragedy. Reading it, I was reminded of Leo Marxs analysis of Thoreaus Walden. In The Machine in the Garden, Marx names Thoreau a tragic, if complex pastoralist. After failing to make an agrarian living raising beans for commercial trade (although his intent was always more allegorical than pecuniary), Thoreau ends Walden by replacing the pastoral idea where it originated: in literature. Paradise, Marx concludes, is not ultimately to be found at Walden Pond; it is to be found in the pages of Walden." - Author: Heather Paxson

Quotes About Movie Embarrassment

"Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up. If a guy punches you he likes you. Never try to trim your own bangs and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, Every story were told implores us to wait for it, the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes were so focused on finding our happy ending we dont learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who dont, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesnt include a guy, maybe... its you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is... just... moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope." - Author: Greg Behrendt

Quotes About Significant Experiences

"Stone: Yes, we are everything, every experience weve ever had, and in some of us, a lot of it translates and makes patterns, poems. But, my God, we dont even began to touch upon it. Theres an enormous amount, but we can touch such a little.Interviewer: Thats true, just a very small portion.Stone: Very small. I think thats one of the things that our minds do; they sort out, somehow, often, and make patterns of significant things to us. And I think our minds do that for us in the dark, and then they offer them back in poems. I think your mind makes up your poem before you get it. You know, you receive the poem from your mind, you know you do. It takes a multitude of experiences, and all this language, and all this sound, and puts it together in these patterns that are significant to you and gives it back to you." - Author: Ruth Stone
