Favorite Gus Gus Quotes

1. "They walked gingerly across the junk-filled vacant lots to the local abattoir - a place of infinite fascination, with its strange sights and stranger smells.It was a thrill - because it outraged their every sense of animal love - to watch the killings. To see calm, innocent cattle led one by one into that room with the fetid smells and the stained, concrete floor always a'swish with running water. To see brawny, heavy-set Gus Milner and his equally big son, Charley, slip the snubbing rope through the ring in the cow's nose, and relentlessly draw its head down and down until its nose touched the heavy ring set in the floor, then fasten it.Their hearts did strange nip-ups just back of their mouths as one of the men would pick up the heavy sledge, and with one great, perfectly aimed blow, strike the animal just between and a bit above the eyes. They always jumped at the sudden slump as the carcass dropped, spraddled and lifeless, to the floor."

4. "She has never been a pretty crier. She sobbed the way she did everything else - with passion and excess. That she had managed to keep it inside her this long was astounding to James. He thought of pushing open the half-closed door and kneeling before his wife, wrapping his arms around her shoulders and helping her upstairs. He raised his hand, stroking the wood of the door, planning to say something to calm her. But what wisdom could he offer Gus, when he could not even heed it himself? James walked upstairs again, got into bed, covered his head with a pillow. And hours later, when Gus crept beneath the sheets, he tried to pretend that he did not feel the weight of her grief, lying between them like a fitful child, so solid that he could not reach past it to touch her."
Author: Jodi Picoult

"Augustus Waters was the Mayor of the Secret City of Cancervania, and he is not replaceable", Isaac began."Other people will be able to tell you funny stories about Gus, because he was a funny guy, but let me tell you a serious one: A day after I got my eye cut out, Gus showed up at the hospital. I was blind and heartbroken and dind't want to do anything and Gus burst into my room and shouted, 'I have wonderful news!'

My nostalgia is so extreme that I am capable of missing a swing my butt never actually touched.''Nostalgia is a side effect of cancer,' I told him.'Nah, nostalgia is a side effect of dying, ' he answered.

9. "NOTHING HAS EVER LOOKED LIKE THAT EVER IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY," he said. His enthusiasm was adorable.

Who held your hand as you took your first infantile steps.""It's friendly," I reminded her, turning to kiss her on the cheek."Didn't feel too friendly," Gus mumbled just loud enough for me to hear. When surprised and excited and innocent Gus emerged from Grand Gesture Metaphorically Inclined Augustus, I literally could not resist."

I liked that he took existentially fraught free throws. I liked that he was a tenured professor in the Department of Slightly Crooked Smiles with a dual appointment in the Department of Having a Voice That Made My Skin Feel More Like Skin. And I liked that he had two names. I've always liked people with two names, because you get to make up your mind what you call them: Gus or Augustus? Me, I was always just Hazel, univalent Hazel."

That made me cry harder. 'I will,' he said. 'I will. Better than any sh*t that drunk could write. His brain is Swiss cheese. He doesn't even remember writing the book. I can write ten times the story that guy can. There will be blood and guts and sacrifice. An Imperial Affliction meets The Prince of Dawn. You'll love it.' I kept nodding, faking a smile, and then he hugged me, his strong arms pulling me into his muscular chest, and I sogged up his polo shirt a little but then recovered enough to speak."

"Gus the driver is everywhere and yet he appears nowhere, not in portraits or photographs, not even in the stories of men like Barthelme and Carver, who were all about guys with jobs and prospects like Gus's but who insisted on more sorrow, more angst, than Gus remotely manifests. If Gus weeps sometimes for no reason, if he stands despairing in the aisle of a Wal-Mart, it is not apparent in his daily demeanor..."

20. "Melalui kajian dan penyelidikan pengajian tingginya, Barat mendidik kaum terpelajar dunia Islam dan Timur sama ada dari segi ekonomi, sains dan teknologi, pentadbiran awam, sosiologi, falsafah mahupun agama. Secara yang cukup licik, Barat secara senyap-senyap menyusup di semua kedudukan dan jawatan strategis dunia melalui saluran pemikiran, ilmu dan pendidikan. Justeru idea dan pengaruh Barat menjadi satu cabaran amat besar terhadap bangsa-bangsa yang lain. Cabaran ilmu dan pengetahuan ini hanya mampu dipecahkan sekiranya kita memiliki universiti-universiti sendiri yang sekali gus bercirikan Islam dan moden."
Author: Mohd Sani Badron

24. "Penekanan kepada ilmu sebagai satu kuasa (knowledge is power) membuat pemimpin dan pentadbir merancang dan melaksanakan dasar yang boleh mengembangkan ilmu, dan sekali gus mendapat kekuatan baru dalam hal tersebut. Kuasa Barat yang menjajah negara lain semuanya meletakkan peranan besar ilmu terutama dari segi memahami bahasa, pemikiran, budaya dan tradisi jajahan takluknya. Penekanan ini telah berjalan dengan teratur dengan gigih sehinggalah menimbulkan bidang pengajian baru, yang mengenai dunia Asia-Afrika disebut "Orientalisme"."

Shawn said."It's not ironic at all," Gus said."Dude, it's so like a black fly in your chardonnay.""How many times do I have to tell you that's not ironic, either?""Rain on your wedding day?""‘Irony' is the use of words to convey a meaning that's opposite to their literal meaning," Gus said. "That stupid song came out fourteen years ago, and we still have this exact conversation at least once a week.""Yeah," Shawn said. "Ironic, isn't it?"
