James Carroll Quotes

"The very act of story-telling, of arranging memory and invention according to the structure of the narrative, is by definition holy. We tell stories because we cant help it. We tell stories because we love to entertain and hope to edify. We tell stories because they fill the silence death imposes. We tell stories because they save us."

Henryk Stanczyk Quotes

Tim Keel Quotes

Choire Sicha Quotes

"Sometimes work was just what you clocked into while you were falling in love. Sometimes sex was just something you did while you werent at work. Drugs were something you did sometimes when you couldnt deal with one of those things, or with yourself. The City was so expensive and so grueling sometimes that it was easy to be unsure why you were there. Many were there to make money, money that could largely only be made there, in the long spiny arms of industries that could never grow anywhere else or anywhere smaller. Some people just liked it, its loudness and crowdedness and surprises. Some started there for a reason and then couldnt imagine being anywhere else, but maybe lost track of that reason along the way. Some people had a plan. Some were just chancing it. Either way the months flew by, and over the years you came up with something or you came up with not much."

Quotes About Seductive Lips

"Im staring at him with my mouth open—again—as he tucks his shirt back in. When hes finished, he takes a step closer to me. I stand perfectly still.

Quotes About Independent Love

"Many strong girls have similar stories: They were socially isolated and lonely in adolescence. Smart girls are often the girls most rejected by peers. Their strength is a threat and they are punished for being different. Girls who are unattractive or who dont worry about their appearance are scorned. This isolation is often a blessing because it allows girls to develop a strong sense of self. Girls who are isolated emerge from adolescence more independent and self-sufficient than girls who have been accepted by others. Strong girls may protect themselves by being quiet and guarded so that their rebellion is known by only a few trusted others. They may be cranky and irascible and keep critics at a distance so that only people who love them know what they are up to. They may have the knack of shrugging off the opinions of others or they may use humor to deflect the hostility that comes their way." - Author: Mary Pipher
