Quotes About Mirabelle

"In the middle section of the book Mirabelle breaks into not one, but two houses near Belgravia Books. I had fun scoping these out - checking which windows looked least secure and figuring out how to scale the mews houses to the rear to get her inside. A man came out at one point, What are you doing? he questioned me. The thing is, Im writing a book, I started with a smile. He waved me off, his hand as wide as a tennis racket. Everyone is writing a book, my dear, he said. Between you and I, its his house that MIrabelle ends up breaking into." - Author: Sara Sheridan

Quotes About Revelation The Antichrist

"In moments of peace such as I experienced that day with Edal there exists some unritual reunion with the rest of creation without which the lives of many are trivial. Extinct applies as much to an essential mental attitude as to the vanished creatures of the earth such as the Dodo. We can no longer await some scientific revelation to avoid the destruction of our species in this context; the evidence is all there, the writing on the wall. The way back cannot be the same for all of us, but for those like myself it means a descent of the rungs until we stand again amid the other creatures of the earth and share to some small extent their vision of it, even though this may be labelled Wordsworthian romanticism." - Author: Gavin Maxwell

Quotes About Oliveira

"A Oliveira le gustaba hacer el amor con la Maga porque nada podía ser más importante para ella y al mismo tiempo, de una manera difícilmente comprensible, estaba como por debajo de su placer, se alcanzaba en él un momento y por eso se adhería desesperadamente y lo prolongaba, era como un despertarse y conocer su verdadero nombre, y después recaía en una zona siempre un poco crepuscular que encantaba a Oliveira temeroso de perfecciones, pero que la Maga sufría de verdad cuando regresaba a sus recuerdos y a todo lo que oscuramente necesitaba pensar y no podía pensar, entonces había que besarla profundamente, incitarla a nuevos juegos, y la otra, la reconciliada, crecía debajo de él y lo arrebataba, se daba entonces como una bestia frenética, los ojos perdidos y las manos torcidas hacia adentro, mítica y atroz como una estatua rodando por una montaña, arrancando el tiempo con las uñas." - Author: Julio Cortázar

Quotes About Making Good Out Of Bad

"Is there an answer to the question of why bad things happen to good people?...The response would be…to forgive the world for not being perfect, to forgive God for not making a better world, to reach out to the people around us, and to go on living despite it all…no longer asking why something happened, but asking how we will respond, what we intend to do now that it has happened." - Author: Harold S. Kushner

Quotes About Roadworks

"This was the winter of 2008/9. Work was ongoing to reinstate a tram system in the city. A lot of people couldnt see the point of trams and many more disliked the disruption. Streets were closed off. There was almost a sense of ‘apartheid as the roadworks made it difficult to move from New Town to Old Town and vice versa. Added to which, the weather was fairly grim. And the banks looked ready to implode." - Author: Ian Rankin

Quotes About Stove

"Let a woman learn only a handful of basic finishes for her meat, and she will become a cook instead of a housewife. Butter and cream, for example. What chicken is there - what veal, what pork - indeed, what shrimp, scallops, oysters, or clams, that will not come to a glorious end if, five minutes before they leave the stove, they are graced with a lump of butter and as many tablespoons of cream as can be spared?" - Author: Robert Farrar Capon

Quotes About Cleave

"When Godric banished Fairweather and Tune, they all three bled for it, and part of Godric snaked off too, nevermore to come again. And its Godrics flesh that Ailreds cough cleaves to like an axe. And when brave Mouse went down off Wales, he bore to the bottom the cut of Godrics sharp farewell. And when Gillian vanished in a Dover wood, she took with her all but the husk of Godrics joy." - Author: Frederick Buechner
