Alice Dibley quotes by Pamela Morsi
#1. Suddenly, from the depths of that chair emerged the biggest, meanest-looking dog Jesse had ever seen. One side of his face had suffered some disfiguring injury.
The jaw hung slack and the eye on that side was missing.
Jesse froze in her tracks, terrified that she might be mauled by this monstrosity of a pet. She glanced
around, looking for a stick or a rock or anything to defend herself. There was nothing close but she was afraid to move. Surely if the animal were dangerous, Floyd and Alice Fay would have said something. Jesse waited tensely for a moment before realizing the dog wasn't so much growling or barking as he was howling; loudly, purposefully howling.
"She don't bite," a voice called out. "She's my hillbilly alarm system, letting me know that they's strangers about. #Quote by Pamela Morsi

Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Dreger
#5. If we have a situation where a man is particularly graceful in a sport that rewards grace - say, for example, figure skating - why is it that we don't say to the man, 'Well, you're too feminine to compete?' ... I don't understand why we don't find it offensive also to say to a women who's very strong, 'You're too masculine to compete.' #Quote by Alice Dreger

#6. Tradition is a fragile thing in a culture built entirely on the memories of the elders. #Quote by Alice Albinia
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Boyes
#7. Milk, milk, milk involves taking a trigger word from whatever repetitive thought you're having - such as breakup, alone, overwhelmed, foolish - and repeated that word as fast as possible for 30 seconds to two minutes. The technique is called milk, milk, milk because when people practice it with a therapist, the practice word used is milk.
How does the technique work? When you expose yourself over and over to whatever word is triggering your distress, it starts to lose its power in triggering painful memories and becomes just a sound. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Hegan Rice
#8. It is a terrifying as well as hopeful truth that we tend to bring into being in form whatever we fashion in thought. #Quote by Alice Hegan Rice

#11. I don't take up the story and follow it as if it were a road, taking me somewhere ... I go into it, and
move back and forth
and settle here and there, and stay in it for a while. It is more
like a house.
Alice Munro on reading. #Quote by Alice Munro

Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Walker
#14. It's a tragedy, in a way, that Americans are brought up to think that they cannot feel for other people and other beings just because they are different. They think they're different. It's very limiting. #Quote by Alice Walker

Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Munro
#17. This is what happens. You put it away for a little while, and now and again you look in the closet for something else and you remember, and you think, soon. Then it becomes something that is just there, in the closet, and other things get crowded in front of it and on top of it and finally you don't think about it at all.
The thing that was your bright treasure. You don't think about it. A loss you could not contemplate at one time, and now it becomes something you can barely remember.
This is what happens.
Few people, very few, have a treasure, and if you do you must hang onto it. You must not let yourself be waylaid, and have it taken from you. #Quote by Alice Munro
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Walker

Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Englert

Alice Dibley quotes by Fynn
#20. In here was the image
of God. It isn't the devil in humanity that makes man a lonely creature, it's his God-likeness. It's the fullness of the Good that can't get out or can't find its proper "other place" that makes for loneliness.Anna's misery was for others. They just could not see the beauty of that broken iron stump, the colors, the crystalline shapes; they could not see the possibilities there. Anna wanted them to join with her in this exciting new world , but they could not imagine themselves to be so small that this jagged fracture
could become a world of iron mountains, of iron plains with crystal trees.It was a new world to explore, a world of the imagination, a world where few people would or could follow her. In this broken-off stump was a whole new realm of possibilities to be explored and to be enjoyed.
Mister God most certainly enjoyed it, but then Mister God didn't at all
mind making himself small. People thought that Mister God was very big, and that's where they made a big mistake. Obviously Mister God could be any size he wanted to be.
"If he couldn't be little, how could he know what it's like to be a lady
-bird?" Indeed, how could he? So, like Alice in Wonderland, Anna ate of the cake of imagination and altered her size to fit the occasion.After all, Mister God did not have only one point of view but an infinity of viewing points, and the whole purpose of living was to be like Mister God. So far as Anna was concerned, being #Quote by Fynn
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Thomas Ellis
#21. The snag in being married to a person who knows more or less everything is that one gets hopelessly lazy ... I never look things up in books because all I need to do is ask him, and when he gives me the answers I don't properly commit them to memory because I know if I forget all I have to do is to ask him again. It is rather like keeping one's brain in a suitcase. #Quote by Alice Thomas Ellis
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Walker
#22. My fantasy life. Without it I'm afraid to exist. #Quote by Alice Walker
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Munro
#23. Long after all the chocolates were eaten, and the cousins had gone, we kept the chocolate-box in the linen-drawer in the dining-room sideboard, waiting for some ceremonial use that never presented itself. It was still full of the empty chocolate cups of dark, fluted paper. In the wintertime I would sometimes go into the cold dining room and sniff at the cups, inhaling their smell of artifice and luxury; I would read again the descriptions on the map provided on the inside of the box-top: hazelnut, creamy nougat, Turkish delight, golden toffee, peppermint cream. #Quote by Alice Munro
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Walker
#24. I grew up in the South [USA states] under segregation. I know what terrorism feels like - when your father could be taken out in the middle of the night and lynched just because he didn't look like he was in an obeying frame of mind when a white person said something he must do. That's terrorism, too. #Quote by Alice Walker
Alice Dibley quotes by Lewis Carroll
#25. Rule Forty-two. All persons more than a mile high to leave the court. #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Sebold
#26. At some point, to counter the list of the dead, I had begun keeping my own list of the living. It was something I noticed Len Fenerman did too. When he was off duty he would note the young girls and elderly women and every other female in the rainbow in between and count them among the things that sustained him. The young girl in the mall whose pale legs had grown too long for her now too-young dress and who had an aching vulnerability that went straight to both Len's and my own heart. Elderly women, wobbling with walkers, who insisted on dyeing their hair unnatural versions of the colors they had in youth. Middle-aged single mothers racing around in grocery stores while their children pulled bags of candy off the shelves. When I saw them, I took count. Living, breathing women. Sometimes I saw the wounded- those who had been beaten by husbands or raped by strangers, children raped by their fathers- and I would wish to intervene somehow.
Len saw these wounded women all the time. They were regulars at the station, but even when he went somewhere outside his jurisdiction he could sense them when they came near. The wife in that bait-'n'-tackle shop had no bruises on her face but cowered like a dog and spoke in apologetic whispers. The girl he saw walk the road each time he went upstate to visit his sisters. As the years passed she'd grown leaner, the fat from her cheeks had drained, and sorrow had loaded her eyes in a way that made them hang heavy and hopeless inside her m #Quote by Alice Sebold
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Munro
#27. ...they lived in a curious but not unhappy isolation, though her father was a popular schoolteacher. Partly they were cut off by Sara's heart trouble, but also by their subscribing to magazines nobody around them read, listening to programs on the national radio network, which nobody around them listened to. By Sara's making her own clothes - sometimes ineptly - from Vogue patterns, instead of Butterick. Even by the way they preserved some impression of youth instead of thickening and slouching like the parents of Juliet's schoolfellows. #Quote by Alice Munro
Alice Dibley quotes by Rob Zombie
#28. I've always loved Alice Cooper. #Quote by Rob Zombie
Alice Dibley quotes by Alice Walker
#29. My interest in creating anything is that it be useful. #Quote by Alice Walker
Alice Dibley quotes by John Sandford
#30. She smiled and said, "Agent Davenport? I'm Alice Green. Ms. Grant is waiting for you in the library." Which sounded just slightly snotty. Lucas thought, I've got a library, too, and then Green turned away from him and he saw the semiautomatic pistol clipped to the back of her slacks. Lucas said, "You're security?" "Yes," she said, looking over her shoulder. "I can stay with Ms. Grant where men can't. Like ladies' rooms." "Ex-cop or something?" "Secret Service," she said. "La-di-da," Lucas said. Green tilted her head back and laughed and said, "Yes," and her reaction made Lucas like her. #Quote by John Sandford
