Favorite The Long Telegram Quotes

1. "In those years before mobile phones, email and Skype, travelers depended on the rudimentary communications system known as the postcard. Other methods--the long-distance phone call, the telegram--were marked "For Emergency Use Only." So my parents waved me off into the unknown, and their news bulletins about me would have been restricted to "Yes, he's arrived safely,"and "Last time we heard he was in Oregon," and "We expect him back in a few weeks." I'm not saying this was necessarily better, let alone more character-forming; just that in my case it probably helped not to have my parents a button's touch away, spilling out anxieties and long-range weather forecasts, warning me against floods, epidemics and psychos who preyed on backpackers."

2. "Oh my gosh," Somer whispers, one hand flying up to her mouth. "She's beautiful."Krishnan fumbles with the papers and reads, "Asha. That's her name. Ten months old." "What does it mean?" she asks."Asha? Hope." He looks up at her, smiling. "It means hope.""Really?" She gives a little laugh, crying as well. "Well, she must be ours then." She grasps his hand, intertwining their fingers, and kisses him. "That's perfect, really perfect." She rests her head on his shoulder as they stare at the photo together.For the first time in a very long time, Somer feels a lightness in her chest. How can it be I'm already in love with this child, half a world away? The next morning, they send a telegram to the orphanage, stating they are coming to get their daughter."

Today's Quote

Musielismy kupic nowe papierosy, bo stare calkiem rozmiekly. Tutaj bylo sucho, cieplo i wirowal kurz. Plaszcze powiesilismy na wieszaku obok kaloryfera. Wypilismy i zamówilismy jeszcze. Minione godziny odsuwaly sie jak sen. Grajaca szafa w rogu wciaz odgrywala te sama melodie. W glebi siedzial mezczyzna z zóltym psem. Sciany mialy ciemnoczerwony kolor. Zlote kinkiety z plastyku ledwo rozpraszaly mrok. Nasz stolik lekko sie chwial. Zamówilismy jeszcze po ciastku, bo nic innego nie bylo."
