Adoff Mongo quotes by Jack McDevitt
#1. My father used to take me to the movies on Saturdays. In 1940, when I was four years old, we encountered 'Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe.' I loved it. Especially the rocket ship, which I later realized had no airlock and no washroom. But they managed to get to Mongo with it. #Quote by Jack McDevitt
Adoff Mongo quotes by Mongo Beti
#2. Old carts can be repainted but they still keep moving in the same old ruts #Quote by Mongo Beti
Adoff Mongo quotes by Jamie Adoff
#3. Reality sucks, that's probably why we dream. Why our bodies need sleep. So we can escape. Escape this earth, at least just for a little while. Everynight, we get to go away. Sleep is the only time I feel safe. The only time I can leave this place. This reality that feels like needles sticking into my flesh. This hell that is so hot it makes my hair sweat. Makes mymind melt. In my sleep I hear music, I see faces, songs and smiles and dad hugging me tight. Never letting me go. Telling me to be strong. Telling me not to give up hope. Sometimes I wake up crying. Sometimes I wish I didn't wake up at all - jamie adoff #Quote by Jamie Adoff
Adoff Mongo quotes by Charlie LeDuff
#4. He don't read. You know he doesn't have a book in his office? Not a fucking book in the shelves. Ain't that some shit? (Adolph Mongo speaking of Kwame Kilpatrick) #Quote by Charlie LeDuff
Adoff Mongo quotes by Wendy Mass
#5. I reach under Mongo, and my hand lands on something squishy. I grab hold of it, and pull out an orange bunny Peep from a long ago Easter. Even I wouldn't eat it now. The scary thing is, it still looks perfectly fine. Dusty, but fine. I think Dr. Grady was wrong. At the end of the world will be bacteria, cockroaches, and Peeps. #Quote by Wendy Mass
Adoff Mongo quotes by George Chesbro
#6. Some years ago a psychiatrist had told me that finding out things other people didn't want known was my way of trying to stay even with a society filled with people bigger than I was. The remark had been meant to startle, to provoke insight, and eventually to alter my behavior.
Instead, I'd simply found that I thoroughly agreed with him and had gone out after a private investigator's license.
[Dr. Robert Frederickson AKA Mongo] #Quote by George Chesbro
Adoff Mongo quotes by Arnold Adoff
#7. Writing a poem is making music with words and space. #Quote by Arnold Adoff
Adoff Mongo quotes by Arnold Adoff
#8. A fine poem combines the elements of meaning, music, and a form like a living frame that holds it together. #Quote by Arnold Adoff
Adoff Mongo quotes by Michio Kaku
#9. I used to watch the old 'Flash Gordon' series on TV, and it was thrilling to rocket to the planet Mongo every week. But after a while, I figured out that although Flash got the girl and all the accolades, it was really Dr. Zarkov who made the series work. Without Dr. Zarkov, there could be no Flash Gordon. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Adoff Mongo quotes by Karl Wiggins
#10. It really was a whole generation who were listening to Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Ella Fitzgerald, Sonny Rollins, James Moody, Fats Navarro and, a little bit later on, Mongo Santamaría and Chuck Berry, and these dozen or so guys gave them a voice. They led the way. They wrote what a whole generation wanted to read. The time was right and they seized the day by writing about their lives. They travelled, they got into scrapes, they got arrested, they got wasted … and they wrote about it.

Isn't that something? #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Adoff Mongo quotes by Arnold Adoff
#11. I began writing for kids because I wanted to effect a change in American society. I continue in that spirit. By the time we reach adulthood, we are closed and set in our attitudes. The chances of a poet reaching us are very slim. But I can open a child's imagination, develop his appetite for poetry, and more importantly, show him that poetry is a natural part of everyday life. We all need someone to point out that the emperor is wearing no clothes. That's the poet's job. #Quote by Arnold Adoff
