Melanie Finn Quotes

"This is what you remember about him: not much, but then you have been assiduous in your forgetting. His red sweater, v-neck, cashmere; the clink of ice-cubes in a glass. He is shadow and voice, but you cannot recall his face. He is behind a closed door, in a forbidden room. He is asleep in his armchair, he is asleep in the driveway, asleep in your sandpit, face down, snoring but not harmless, even then. He is shouting, he is whispering, he is close but also remote as if at the end of a long hallway and you cannot hear him. His words never make any sense, he speaks some other language. His hands sometimes spin away from him like windmills, like pinwheels and Catherine wheels, snapping like firecrackers. There must be pain, but you cannot feel it.Your skin bruises like apples."

Quotes About Famous Nebraska

"If hed been negotiating Obamacare, Lincoln would have made the infamous Cornhusker Kickback deal - $100 million in Medicaid funds for Nebraska to secure a Senators vote - in a heartbeat, even if the press howled as it did when Barack Obama agreed to it, forcing its cancellation." - Author: Joe Klein

Quotes About Ammonia

"I taught Leah how to tell where we were in the Campo by using her sense of smell. The south side was glazed with the smell of slain fish and no amount of water or broom-work could ever eliminate the tincture of ammonia scenting that part of the piazza. The fish had written their names in those stones. But so had the young lambs and the coffee beans and torn arugula and the glistening tiers of citrus and the bread baking that produced a golden brown perfume from the great ovens. I whispered to Leah that a sense of smell was better than a yearbook for imprinting the delicate graffiti of time in the memory." - Author: Pat Conroy

Quotes About Character Counts

"The theory Im putting forward here is that storytelling is a genetic characteristic in the sense that early human hunters who were able to organize events into stories were more successful than hunters who werent—and this success translated directly into reproductive success. In other words, hunters who were storytellers tended to be better represented in the gene pool than hunters who werent, which (incidentally) accounts for the fact that storytelling isnt just found here and there among human cultures, its found universally." - Author: Daniel Quinn

Quotes About Reflecting Light

"Autumnal -- nothing to do with leaves. It is to do with a certain brownness at the edges of the day ... Brown is creeping up on us, take my word for it ... Russets and tangerine shades of old gold flushing the very outside edge of the senses... deep shining ochres, burnt umber and parchments of baked earth -- reflecting on itself and through itself, filtering the light. At such times, perhaps, coincidentally, the leaves might fall, somewhere, by repute. Yesterday was blue, like smoke." - Author: Tom Stoppard

"My opinions of which of my works are good are vastly different than other peoples. There is one that Im obsessed with but I swear... no one else has ever even commented on it. So Im a bit shy to draw attention to it." - Author: Jemima Kirke

Quotes About Ciencia

"Hay realidades que difícilmente podrán ser probadas por la ciencia o por las deducciones de la razón pura. Nadie puede concebir esas verdades mientras permanezca en el reino de la experiencia humana. Cuando hayáis acabado aquí abajo, cundo completéis vuestro recorrido de prueba en la carne, cuando el polvo que forma el tabernáculo mortal sea devuelto a la tierra de donde procede, entonces, sólo entonces, el Espíritu que os habita retornará al Dios que os lo ha regalado y tu pregunta quedará plenamente satisfecha. Caballo de Troya 3" - Author: J.J. Benítez

Quotes About Debt Of Honor

"A year earlier, no company had been accorded more faith than Enron; by late November, none was trusted less. And so, a gasping gurgle, a desperate SOS: Enron, the emblem of free markets, the champion of deregulation, reached into its depleted treasury and forked over $100,000 to each of the major political parties campaign war chests. Then, it shuttered its online trading unit - its erstwhile gem. On November 28, Standard & Poors downgraded Enron to junk-bond level - which triggered provisions in Enrons debt requiring it to immediately repay billions of its obligations. This it could not do. Its stock was seventy cents and falling, and, now, no gatekeepers and no credit remained. Accordingly, in the first week of December, Enron, the archetype of shareholder value, availed itself of the time-honored protection for those who have lost their credit: bankruptcy." - Author: Roger Lowenstein
