Favorite Stutter Quotes

1. "Conversation, to take another example, is one of the common pleasures of life, but not all conversation is pleasurable. The stutterer finds talking painful, and the listener is equally pained. Persons who are inhibited in expressing feeling are not good conversationalists. Nothing is more boring than to listen to a person talk in a monotone without feeling. We enjoy a conversation when there is a communication of feeling. We have pleasure in expressing our feelings, and we respond pleasurably to another person's expression of feeling. The voice, like the body, is a medium through which feeling flows, and when this flow occurs in an easy and rhythmic manner, it is a pleasure both to the speaker and listener."
Author: Alexander Lowen

"Paca is a fraud, Grom," she says. "You can't mate with her. Sorry to ruin your ceremony. Let's go, Galen."Paca gasps as Jagen swims up to the party, almost stuttering in his fury. "You little...little stonefish! How dare you insult my daughter?"Galen grabs Rayna's arm. "What did you do?" he hisses.She jerks her arm away and gives him a superior look. "If Paca has the Gift of Poseidon, I have the Gift of Triton. Don't ask me what it is though, because I don't have a clue.""Rayna, enough!" Grom says, grabbing her other arm. "Apologize. Right now.""Apologize for what? Telling the truth? Sorry, not feeling it."

10. "Yeah, it stings. But at least I feel something. Something besides hungry. Something besides afraid. Weird. I always thought cutters were sick. Sicker than me, even. But with a single swipe I understand why they do it. Why they like it, even though they hate it. I let the water run over the cut, ratchet it hotter, watch the blood slow, stutter, almost halt. I like the way the exposed flesh looks, all pinkish white. It looks new, although I know that isn't right. It's the same age as my skin, as my bones. Me. It's been there with me since the beginning. Been with me through thick. Thin. Daddy. Suddenly, I don't like how it looks at all."
Author: Ellen Hopkins

12. "To love mankind for the sake of God-that has been the most nobel and far-fetched feeling yet achieved by human beings. The idea that without some sanctifying ulterior motive, a love of mankind is just one more brutish stupidity, that the predisposition to such a love must first find its weight, its refinement, its grain of salt and pinch of ambergris in another even higher predisposition-whoever first felt and 'witnessed' this, and however much his tongue may have stuttered in attempting to express such a delicate idea: may he remain forever venerable and holy in our sight as the man who as yet has flown the highest and erred the most beautifully!"
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

He jabbed at d'Anton's face: below the cheekbones, at the side of his jaw. "I'll teach you like an actor," he said. "This city is our stage."Camille said: "Book of Ezekiel. ‘This city is the cauldron, and we the flesh' ..."Fabre turned. "This stutter," he said. "You don't have to do it." Camille put his hands over his eyes. "Leave me alone," he said. "Even you." Fabre's face was incandescent. "Even you, I am going to teach." He leapt forward, wrenched Camille upright in his chair. He took him by the shoulders and shook him. "You're going to talk properly," Fabre said. "Even if it kills one of us." Camille put his hands protectively over his head. Fabre continued to perpetrate violence; d'Anton was too tired to intervene."
Author: Hilary Mantel

I have to go and stutter for two hours at the Jacobins and probably be knocked down again by maddened violin makers and trampled by all sorts of tradesmen.Whilst Danton spends his evenings feeling up his new girlfriend and you lie around here in a nice fever, not too high.

Travis looked down at my chest and then up at me. "You can't wear this to the fight, so please…just…please just change," he stuttered, shoving me into the room and shutting me in."

Grudging axle thud like the heartbeat of a strong old man."

I'm going to kill the boy who killed me, and when I kill him, I'm going to do it with my left hand."

He has to be cagey, Billy, you should know that as well as anyone. What could I do? I can't fix your stuttering. I can't wipe the razorblade scars off your wrists or the cigarette burns off the back of your hands. I can't give you a new mother. And as far as the nurse riding you like this, rubbing your nose in your weakness till what little dignity you got left is gone and you shrink up to nothing from humiliation, I can't do anything about that, either."
Author: Ken Kesey

I tell him, my tone doing all the rejecting for me."Seriously though, the offer stands. Think it over." He tells me in a soft voice."I don't have PA experience.""I'll teach you," he says, in a tone that insinuates other things."Sure."He lowers his voice. "I think I'd enjoy teaching you things.""Can't say I w-would enjoy it." Yeah, right."You stuttered," he says"

Sicarius's eyes glinted, and Amaranthe scowled at him."

Leo tried to shove him away, but Passalos did a backward somersault and landed out of reach. Leo's pants promptly fell around his knees.He stared at Passalos, who was now grinning and holding a small zigzaggy strip of metal.

Passalos tossed it away."

Helping someone in their time of need is the greatest thing you could ever do. Why, because it shows that you care and that you're a good friend, even if they are a stranger. When someone needs your help don't just ignore it, try your best even if you don't succeed. Later on down the line that person may be there for you when you need someone. Be the change in a persons life, make a difference, show you care. Don't ignore people when they need help, be the change that person needs in their life and show you care."
