Timothy Schaffert Quotes

"Desiree the child bride, and her sister Miranda, had gone grave-robbing for a wedding gown. In the north end of the cemetery, among the palatial mausoleums with their broken windows of stained glass where the ivy crept in, was the resting place of a young woman whod been murdered at the altar while reciting her marital vows. The decaying tombstone, among the cemeterys most envied, was a limestone bride in despair, shoulders as slumped as a mules, a bouquet of lilies strewn at her feet. Though her murder, by her grooms jealous mother, had been long in the past, everyone knew that her father had had her buried in her gown of lace and silk."

Quentin R Bufogle Quotes

"Writing is the dragon that lives underneath my floorboards. The one I incessantly feed for fear it may turn and devour my ass. Writing is the friend who doesnt return my phone calls; the itch Im unable to scratch; a dinner invitation from a cannibal; elevator music for a narcoleptic. Writing is the hope of lifting all boats by pissing in the ocean. Writing isnt something that makes me happy like a good cup of coffee. Its just something I do because not writing, as Ive found, is so much worse."

But this is a subject upon which Ive had months to think.Youre intelligent. You suspected my first offer of marriage was based upon my conviction that you would never consent to an affair with me and that it was desperation only for your personthat drove me to offer for you.""And the second upon a need to rescue me."He nodded. "Far more straightforward, darling, yet hopelessly complex."She ignored the shiver in her belly. "Meaning?""I love you."

And I did make vows to you today." - Author: Carolyn Jewel

"In those sticky summer nights in South London our windows stay open and our tiny apartment becomes our secret garden. The magic of the secret garden is that it exists in our imagination.

We own our bodies. We own our lives." - Author: Diriye Osman

Quotes About Speeding Time

"The villagers were speeding up the circling of events because she was too shortsighted to see that her infidelity had already harmed the village, the waves of consequences would return unpredictably, sometimes in disguise, as now, to hurt her. This roundness had to be made coin-sized so that she would see is circumference: punish her at the birth of her baby. Awaken her to the inexorable. People who refused fatalism because they could invent small resources insisted on culpability. Deny accidents and wrest fault from the stars." - Author: Maxine Hong Kingston
