Quotes About Surviving

"We would never have met," he explained, voice dropping to a husky note. "I would have gone about my life and not thought I was missing anything. You would have – you would have painted obsessively, all those transformative images, and I would be someone unimagined and unknown, and I cannot decide whether it would be trite to call that a tragedy or if I should resent you for making this – all this death – somehow bearable, tolerable for the tenuous joy I have gained. You steal my anger and leave me dazed."He stopped, took a shaking breath, then laughed."I sound like Pans understudy, failing to channel Shakespeare.

Quotes About Illness In The Family

"For each self-criticism, there were many criticisms. My mothers two comrades insisted that she had behaved in a bourgeois manner. They said she had not wanted to go to the country to help collect food; when she pointed out that she had gone, in line with the Partys wishes, they retorted: "Ah, but you didnt really want to go." Then they accused her of having enjoyed privileged food cooked, moreover, by her mother at home and of succumbing to illness more than most pregnant women. Mrs. Mi also criticized her because her mother had made clothes for the baby. "Who ever heard of a baby wearing new clothes?"she said. "Such a bourgeois waste! Why cant she just wrap the baby up in old clothes like everyone else?" The fact that my mother had shown her sadness that my grandmother had to leave was singled out as definitive proof that she put family first," a serious offense." - Author: Jung Chang
