Favorite Leonor Quotes

1. "During a party, Luis Buñuel, seduced by Carrington's beauty and emboldened by the notion that she had transcended all bourgeois morality, proposed (with his characteristic bluntness) that she become his mistress. Without even waiting for her answer, he gave her the key to the secret studio that he used as a love nest and told her to meet him at three o'clock the next afternoon. Early the next morning, Leonora went to visit the place alone. She found it tasteless: It looked exactly like a motel room. Taking advantage of the fact that she was in her menstrual period, she covered her hands with blood and used them to make bloody handprints all over the walls in order to provide a bit of decoration for that anonymous, impersonal room. Buñuel never spoke to her again."

2. "- Tu es ici chez toi, Leonora. Je me nomme Madga et je suis une chaman ainsi que toutes les personnes que tu vois autour de toi. Tu étais un peu perdue alors ta maman est venue nous trouver pour que nous l'aidions à te ramener.- J'ai le droit de la mordre si elle continue à me parler comme à une demeurée ? demanda Léo en se tournant vers moi.- Pas de doute, c'est la digne fille de sa mère, railla aussitôt Tyriam d'un ton amusé."

3. "Da kam noch einmal – ein einziges Mal – durch das Schweigen der Nacht das süße Seufzen wieder zu mir, und es formte sich zu einer wohlbekannten, inbrünstigen Stimme: »Schlafe in Frieden! Denn der Geist der Liebe lebt und herrscht. Und wenn du glühenden Herzens Ermengard umarmst, bist du – aus Gründen, die dir dereinst im Himmel geoffenbart werden sollen – deines Gelübdes an Eleonora entbunden.«"
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
4. "From the dim regions beyond the mountains at the upper end of our encircled domain, there crept out a narrow and deep river, brighter than all save the eyes of Eleonora; and, winding stealthily about in mazy courses, it passed away, at length, through a shadowy gorge, among hills still dimmer than those whence it had issued. We called it the "River of Silence"; for there seemed to be a hushing influence in its flow. No murmur arose from its bed, and so gently it wandered along, that the pearly pebbles upon which we loved to gaze, far down within its bosom, stirred not at all, but lay in a motionless content, each in its own old station, shining on gloriously forever."
Author: Edgar Allan Poe
5. "This is an extra letter in the middle of the month because I'm rather lonely tonight. It's awfully stormy; the snow is beating against my tower. All the lights are out on the campus, but I drank black coffee and I can't go to sleep.I had a supper party this evening consisting of Sallie and Julia and Leonora Fenton - and sardines and toasted muffins and salad and fudge and coffee. Julia said she'd had a good time, but Sallie stayed to help wash the dishes."
Author: Jean Webster
6. "Leonora is the grownups' version of Cinderella. She doesn't take crap from any ugly stepsisters. She doesn't sit indoors waiting to be rescued by prince charming. Oh, no, she rescues prince charming, Florestan, who's locked up in a dungeon by his archenemy, Pizarro. Cinderella was fun when we were little girls, played with dolls and believed in passive fairytales. Now that we're grown women who play with toys, it's only fit to believe in active fairytales."
Author: Luella Christie
7. "Oh dear, is that a skunk?" Leonora asked."No," Alessandro gasped in horror. "No the smelly cat!""I've told you, Alessandro darling, they aren't cats.""They look like cats. Like the big fluffy cat she's been stepped on and flattened to a big fluffy pancake cat," Alessandro argued."
Author: Lynsay Sands
8. "You are a very special child," the old handmaid said, stroking Eleonora's hair. "You know that don't you?"Eleonora mumbled a yes."You know you are special, but I think that you aren't sure how."She nodded. That was, indeed, the crux of it."

Today's Quote

She watched him in the glow of the lamplight, his broad shoulders hunched over the piano, his hair flopping over his face, and knew she couldn't fight her feelings for him any longer. Denying him wasn't going to make them go away. And looking at him right at this moment, she didn't want them to."
