Mary Ruefle Quotes

"A boy from Brooklyn used to cruise on summer nights.As soon as hed hit sixty hed hold his hand out the window,cupping it around the wind. Hed been assuredthis is exactly how a womans breast feels when you putyour hand around it and apply a little pressure. Now he knew,and he loved it. Night after night, again and again, untilthe weather grew cold and he had to roll the window up.For many years afterwards he was perpetually attemptingto soar. One winters night, holding his wifes breastin his hand, he closed his eyes and wanted to weep.He loved her, but it was the wind he imagined now.As he grew older, he loved the word etcetera and refusedto abbreviate it. He loved sweet white butter. He oftenpretended to be playing the organ. On one of his last mornings,he noticed the shape of his face molded in the pillow.He shook it out, but the next morning it reappeared."

Quotes About Angels And Death

"Death didnt happen like I expected it to. There was no Grim Reaper, no chorus of angels, no army of demons. And my life didnt flash before my eyes.

There was nothing but soft random thoughts and picture, drifting through me like a childs breath blowing through a dandelion after making a wish. And as I died, I was held by my love. I wanted to soak up her love and smuggle it with me to wherever my soul was headed.-character Ron (Broken)" - Author: J. Matthew Nespoli

Quotes About Quirky Work

"I try Dr. Pats breathing exercises but theyre not working because my entire mind is focused on keeping myself glued to the couch. I dont want to move any closer to the bathroom just in case. But I hate myself for the thought. I know its not right or normal. I know Im not simply some cute quirky girl like Beck says, and every moment I cant get off the couch is a moment that makes me one level crazier. That heavy, pre-crying feeling floods my sinuses and I drop my head from the weight of it. Cover my face with my hands long enough to get out a cry or two. Because there is nothing, nothing worse than not being able to undo the crazy thoughts. I ask them to leave, but they wont. I try to ignore them, but the only thing that works is giving in to them.Torture: knowing something makes no sense, doing it anyway." - Author: Corey Ann Haydu

Quotes About Feelings Of Love

"The traditional gender ideals of the strong-silent man who plays his cards close to his chest and the mysterious woman who disguises her feelings with coyness go so far as to make a virtue of being unavailable and secretive. But wholehearted intimacy can develop only where two people are equally forthcoming and self-revelatory. To take the risk of loving, we must become vulnerable enough to test the radical proposition that knowledge of another and self-revelation will ultimately increase rather than decrease love. It is an awe-ful risk." - Author: Sam Keen
