[Toddlers Were Running The Place Like Some Miniature Version Of Lord Of The Flies, Complete With Weapons Made From Blocks And Tinker Toys. One Of Them Came At Me, Charging My Knees And The Pink Pod That Held My Precious Baby. I Screamed And Made A Run For The Front Door, Flip-flops Sticking To Squelchy Dried Puddles Of Juice. I Let Out A Relieved Sigh When We Were Outside Breathing Fresh Air. The Near-deafening Roar Of The Highway Was A Lark Song Compared To The Screeching We'd Just Escaped.]

Louise Doughty Quotes

"Before my daughter was lost to me, I might have attributed his apparent stillness and control to a lack of feeling, but now I know, to my cost, that appearing unfeeling is the price we sometimes pay for being able to speak at all."

Robert J Crane Quotes

"Dr Isabella Perugini stopped on the bank opposite us, her dark hair pulled back in a ponytail, her white lab coat falling below her knees. She slid off her high heeled shoes and began to pick her way across the stream, trying to balance on the rocks jutting out of the water. Her dark complexion was more flushed than usual, her eyes narrowed at me. "You again?" She said it as she executed a hop from one rock to another. "I thought I sorted you out!"

Born Quotes

"When {Born and Heisenberg and the Göttingen theoretical physicists} first discovered matrix mechanics they were having, of course, the same kind of trouble that everybody else had in trying to solve problems and to manipulate and to really do things with matrices. So they had gone to Hilbert for help and Hilbert said the only time he had ever had anything to do with matrices was when they came up as a sort of by-product of the eigenvalues of the boundary-value problem of a differential equation. So if you look for the differential equation which has these matrices you can probably do more with that. They had thought it was a goofy idea and that Hilbert didnt know what he was talking about. So he was having a lot of fun pointing out to them that they could have discovered Schrödingers wave mechanics six month earlier if they had paid a little more attention to him."

Quotes About Marriage Restoration

"I read old novels. The reason is simple: I prefer proper endings. Marriages and deaths, noble sacrifices and miraculous restorations, tragic separations and unhoped-for reunions, great falls and dreams fulfilled; these, in my view, constitute an ending worth the wait. They should come after adventures, perils, dangers and dilemmas, and wind everything up nice and neatly. Endings like this are to be found more commonly in old novels than new ones, so I read old novels." - Author: Diane Setterfield
