Natalie Crown Quotes

"The mouse began to shift and Kammy marvelled at the sight. Soon a second boy stood before her. She hardly noticed Eric appear beside him.He was dressed much like Eric, though his shirt hung looser on his slimmer frame. His hair was a fluffy, chocolate mess. He was taller than Eric and he glared between them both before his eyes came to rest fully on Kammy. The first thing she noticed was the purple bruise on his cheek. The second was how bright his blue eyes were."

"Or is it the case that no one gets over anything? Is there really that much pain and suffering continuing right now at this minute, in millions of hearts, in bodies carrying on the burden of existence, trying to smile through tears for fleeting, passing moments here and there-when they can forget what happened to them, maybe even for whole hours at a time? Maybe thats what it is to live."

Chris Huntington Quotes

"When the battery in my watch died, I still wore it. There was something about the watch that said: It doesnt matter what time it is. Think in months. Years. Someone loves you. Where are you going? There are some things you will never do. It doesnt matter. There is no rush. Be the best prisoner you can be."

Quotes About Chinese Tea

"Miriam will never know what kind of dog attacked her, will imagine a Doberman or a German shepherd with snarling, angry teeth despite the fact she bears neither bite marks nor broken skin. It will never cross her mind that the dog was a beagle and that she was knocked over from a surprise more than force. The children of the house she fled will use the incident to convince their parents to keep the dog, which had been on the verge of being given away for its propensity to shit at the slightest hint of thunder it having been sequestered in the garage that night because of a stormy forecast. The family will never know what manner of burglar their fog deflected, will imagine a scruffy, heavy-set man with scars and a limp groping the family jewelery. It will never cross their minds that their intruder was am upper middle-class wife and mother of two who would have had eyes only for their Chinese teakettle." - Author: Myla Goldberg

Quotes About Old Folks

"Why abandon truth because its out of favor? Hold on to truth long enough and, without a doubt, the world will turn and someone will see youve got it and ask if theres enough to share! Youll hand it out with joy, and there will be more and more to go around... Most of the darkness in this world is due to truth being out of favor. And folks being scared to death to stand up, hold up the light, and speak the truth about the Lord for fear theyll be out of favor too. So we betray the light for saftys sake. Hide the fire inside a clay pot. Prefer the darkness. The blindness. Because its safer. You dont get noticed that way. The Light shines again when someone brave-- it only takes one –stands up and says, "Here it is! Heres the Truth!" - Author: Bodie Thoene

Quotes About Skyline

"Behind him she saw something which by contrast with the alien incalculable figure before her, was close and real. It was something which she understood, something which she could never do without, or be without, for it seemed as though it were her own self, her own body, at which she gazed and which lay so intimately upon the skyline. Gormenghast. The long, notched outline of her home. It was now his background. It was a screen of walls and towers pocked with windows. He stood against it, an intruder, imposing himself so vividly, so solidly, against her world, his head overtopping the loftiest of its towers." - Author: Mervyn Peake
