1. "Tornai a Parigi, e scrissi questa storia esattamente come mi era stata raccontata. Essa ha soltanto un merito, che probabilmente le sarà contestato: quello di esser vera.Non traggo da questo racconto la conclusione che tutte le donne come Marguerite sono capaci di fare quello che ha fatto lei: me ne guardo bene. Ma sono venuto a sapere che una di loro aveva provato, nella sua vita, un grande amore, che ne aveva sofferto e ne era morta. Ho raccontato al lettore quello che avevo saputo. Era un dovere.Non sono l'apostolo del vizio, ma mi farò l'eco della nobile infelicità dovunque la sentirò supplicare.La storia di Marguerite è un'eccezione, lo ripeto; se fosse stata una storia come tutte le altre non sarebbe valsa la pena di scriverla."
Author: Alexandre Dumas Fils

Author: Alexandre Dumas Fils

6. "Tyler wrote: Dearest Marguerite: You've taught me a great deal about stillness. About the many things that can drift into your mind and heart when you shut down the barricades created by noise. Unexpected gifts of insight, revelation and wisdom. <…> But you taught me that love is found in stillness. It is the space between objects. It's the star you can't see if you look directly at it in the night sky, but if you look away, look forward, you see it in your peripheral vision, beside you, watching over you. If you lie down on the earth it's there, beneath you, cradling you.<…> You're my angel, my tormentor, my woman, my love.God, Tyler is such a gentleman! He is gentle AND a gentleman."
Author: Joey W. Hill

Author: Lynsay Sands
11. "Hugh concentrated upon different objects in the camión; the driver's small mirror with the legend running round it—Cooperación de la Cruz Roja, the three picture postcards of the Virgin Mary pinned beside it, the two slim vases of marguerites over the dashboard, the gangrened fire extinguisher, the dungaree jacket and whiskbroom under the seat where the pelado was sitting—he watched him as they hit another bad stretch of road. Swaying from side to side with his eyes shut, the man was trying to tuck in his shirt. Now he was methodically buttoning his coat on the wrong buttons. But it struck Hugh all this was merely preparatory, a sort of grotesque toilet."
Author: Malcolm Lowry
12. "Hanging softly over the black Singer sewing machine, it looked like magic, and when people saw me wearing it they were going to run up to me and say, "Marguerite, forgive us, please, we didn't know who you were," and I would answer generously, "No, you couldn't have known. Of course I forgive you."

Was that so much to ask?Apparently so, for he'd yet to find a peaceful moment at Caen, not with Marguerite sulking and Aimar lurking and Will acting put-upon and Geoff wanting to lay plans and Richard strutting around as if he were the incarnation of Roland and poor Tilda grieving over Maman's absence and his father refusing to heed any voice but his own."
Author: Sharon Kay Penman

Marguerite d'Anjou and her son were expected to land at any time, while from St Albans, Edward sent word that Harry of Lancaster was to be considered a prisoner of state. At that, John Stockton, the Mayor of London, contracted a diplomatic virus and took to his bed."
Author: Sharon Kay Penman
18. "To write," Marguerite Duras remarked, "is also not to speak. It is to keep silent. It is to howl noiselessly."

Today's Quote

Couldn't the wrong sort of living turn anyone mean? I remembered very well that one day back in Yoroido, a boy pushed me into a thorn bush near the pond. By the time I clawed my way out I was mad enough to bite through wood. If a few minutes of suffering could make me so angry, what would years of it do? Even stone can be worn down with enough rain."
