Quotes About My Wonderful Life

"Rosie: I dont know what youre talking about! I am not waiting for Alex!Ruby: Yes you are, my dear friend. He must be some man because nobody can ever measure up to him. And I know thats what you do every time you meet someone: compare. Im sure hes a fabulous friend and Im sure he always says sweet and wonderful thing to you. But hes not here. Hes thousands of miles away, working as a doctor in a great big hospital and he lives in a fancy apartment with his fancy doctor fiancee. I dont think hes thinking of leaving that life anytime soon to come back to a single mother whos living in a tiny flat working in a crappy part-time job in a paperclip factory with a crazy friend who emails her every second. So stop waiting and move on. Live your life." - Author: Cecelia Ahern

Quotes About Granny

"How can I ever make you understand Cassie and me? I would have to take you there, walk you down every path of our secret shared geography. The truism says its against all odds for a straight man and woman to be real friends, platonic friends; we rolled thirteen, threw down five aces and ran away giggling. She was the summertime cousin out of storybooks, the one you taught to swim at some midge-humming lake and pestered with tadpoles down her swimsuit, with whom you practiced first kisses on a heather hillside and laughed about it years later over a clandestine joint in your grannys cluttered attic. She painted my fingernails gold and dared me to leave them that way for work…We climbed out her window and down the fire escape and lay on the roof of the extension below, drinking improvised cocktails and singing Tom Waits and watching the stars spin dizzily around us.No." - Author: Tana French

Quotes About Samarkand

"Sometimes, I overheard my aunts discussing these blighted destinies; and Aunt Ruth would hug me, as if to forestall my following in their footsteps. Yet, from the way she lingered over such words as Xanadu or Samarkand or the wine-dark sea, I think she also felt the trouble of the wanderer in her soul." - Author: Bruce Chatwin

Quotes About Yarn

"It starts with a craving to fill the long evening downslant. There will be whole wide days of watching winter drag her skirts cross the mud-yard from east to west, going nowhere. You will want to nail down all these wadded handfuls of time, to stick-pin them to the blocking board, frame them on a 24-stitch gauge. Ten to the inch, ten rows to the hour, straggling trellises of days held fast in the acreage of a shawl. Time by this means will be domesticated and cannot run away. (In Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting)" - Author: Barbara Kingsolver

Quotes About Injurious
