Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#1. Maybe life is just carrying news. Surviving to carry the news. Maybe we have just one message, and it is delivered to us when we are born and we are never sure what it says; it may have nothing to do with us personally but it must be carried by hand through a life, all the way, and at the end handed over, sealed. He #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#2. A thin watery sun laid its gunmetal shine on the country below. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#3. She said something in Kiowa in a happy tone. My name is Ay-ti-Podle, the Cicada, whose song means there is a fruit ripening nearby. She gestured back toward the big bay saddle horse and tossed her hair back. It was as if she wanted to include Pasha in this newfound happiness. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#4. And she understood, all by herself, without reading it in a novel or hearing it on a radio program, that falling passionately in love with someone, without reservation or holding back, was good for the heart. For its valves and its arteries and that invisible shadow of the heart clled the soul. Falling in love was good for the soul.
#Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Goddard
#5. Actors and actresses who say they never go to see their own pictures are talking through their hats. You don't have to be a Freud to know that the most fascinating person in the world - actors or anybody - is yourself. #Quote by Paulette Goddard
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#6. It would stay with him always as everything you ever did stayed with you, every horse you ever saddled, every morning he awoke with Maria Luisa beside him, and every slap of the paten on fresh paper, every time he had thrown open the shutters in the Betancort house, and his captain dying under his hands, always there like a tangle of telegraph wires in the brain where no dispatch was ever lost, what an odd thing, an odd thing. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#7. The road ran along the north side of the river, a shy and obsequious road that dodged every bank and lift and wound through the pecan trees and never insisted on its own way. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#8. Above and behind them the Dipper turned on its great handle as if to pour night itself out onto the dreaming continent and each of its seven stars gleamed from between the fitful clouds. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Liz Braswell
#9. The wardrobe threw open her doors. Inside were a few interesting things- one of the largest, clearest mirrors Belle had ever seen, some moths, and an extremely pretty collection of gowns that would have made the blond triplets, Paulette, Claudette, and Laurette, swoon.
Belle examined the dresses skeptically. Of course, if things went the way they did in fairy tales, they would all fit her perfectly. The question was, was this a "Bluebeard's Wives" situation? Or something else? #Quote by Liz Braswell
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#10. More than ever knowing in his fragile bones that it was the duty of men who aspired to the condition of humanity to protect children and kill for them if necessary. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#11. For we must not dwell on Death, as it is a mystery and it is something Unknown we leave to the Lord and his disposing for if we knew everything we would be too full of perfectly known things, and thus never rested nor content but driven with busyness and stuffed full. When I rode out in the early mornings in summertimes everything appeared to me, one after the other, in its own selfe without having to be known about beforehand, before you even get to it. In the order of the world is a deep pattern. You can't know if beforehand. If you did you would remain forever unsurprised and dwarfed and hardened. In the early mornings one after another we broke up the planes of water in the pools of Beaverdam with slow steps, horse and rider, and the trees appeared in their reflections like underwater spirits of themselves. Before these things a person is silent. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Goddard
#12. I am not temperamental. I just know what I want and if I don't have it, I try to get it. #Quote by Paulette Goddard
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#13. Captain Kidd said, It has been said by authorities that the law should apply the same to the king and to the peasant both, it should be written out and placed in the city square for all to see, it should be written simply and in the language of the common people, lest the people grow weary of their burdens.
The young man tipped his head toward the Captain with an odd look on his face, It was a kind of longing, a kind of hope.
Who said that?
Hammurabi. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Terry McMillan
#14. I thought you said you were trying to quit swearing!
Go to hell, Paulette. I will. As soon as I can have a whole week where no crazy or ridiculous or unbelievable shi*t happens an my mind is calm long enough to remember how to think. #Quote by Terry McMillan
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Goddard
#15. You live in the present and you eliminate things that don't matter. You don't carry the burden of the past. #Quote by Paulette Goddard
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Jennifer Haigh
#16. It was the oldest friends who mattered most. With each passing year, Paulette realized this more deeply. She thought of her borther Roy, retired to Arizona, to golf with other men who were also - she loathed the expression - senior citizens. Roy had arrived in Phoenix with an entire life behind him, a career, a marriage; to his new friends he'd always be old. #Quote by Jennifer Haigh
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#17. Loss of reputation and the regard of our fellow persons is in any society, from Iceland to Malaysia, a terrible blow to the spirit. It is worse than being penniless and more cutting than the blades of enemies. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Alden
#18. Home, as far as I'm concerned, is the place you have to leave. And then, if you're like me, spend the rest of your life mourning. #Quote by Paulette Alden
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Mahurin
#19. That's why I read so much. A book isn't going to hurt me. A book isn't going to form some opinion about me that could wreck my life. I learn about so many new and great things from reading. I keep to myself with a good book and a shot of whiskey and I'm right with the world. #Quote by Paulette Mahurin
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Lawrence Wright
#20. VERY EARLY ONE MORNING in July 1977, the FBI, having been tipped off about Operation Snow White, carried out raids on Scientology offices in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, carting off nearly fifty thousand documents. One of the files was titled "Operation Freakout." It concerned the treatment of Paulette Cooper, the journalist who had published an exposé of Scientology, The Scandal of Scientology, six years earlier. After having been indicted for perjury and making bomb threats against Scientology, Cooper had gone into a deep depression. She stopped eating. At one point, she weighed just eighty-three pounds. She considered suicide. Finally, she persuaded a doctor to give her sodium pentothal, or "truth serum," and question her under the anesthesia. The government was sufficiently impressed that the prosecutor dropped the case against her, but her reputation was ruined, she was broke, and her health was uncertain. The day after the FBI raid on the Scientology headquarters, Cooper was flying back from Africa, on assignment for a travel magazine, when she read a story in the International Herald Tribune about the raid. One of the files the federal agents discovered was titled "Operation Freakout." The goal of the operation was to get Cooper "incarcerated in a mental institution or jail. #Quote by Lawrence Wright
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#21. Everyone has come to celebrate her return. They will go home and talk about it forever, unto the next generation. But they will not come here and ask about her welfare. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#22. Outside, as she passed the kitchen window, she watched her breath appear before her in the lamplight and then it died away in moist clouds. This was the smoke of her internal fire and her soul. Every breath was a letter to the world. These she mailed into the cold air leaning back with pursed lips to send it upward. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#23. What held the civilized world together was the thinnest tissue of nothing but human will. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#24. The fashion has been in literary fiction for the depressing ending, and for more or less passive characters who have terrible things happen to them . . . So why not have a happy ending? Is there a law? #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#25. They rode up the faint marks of the old trace where thousands of sojourners walking and riding both had crossed it and before them the buffalo far back in time. She joined the stream of humanity that had gone down that road, just one more story in a stream of narratives both likely and unlikely that were being told somewhere even now, by someone, in a far place. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#26. The baking wind tore at his hat and he held it by the brim with one hand. It relieved him to look at it, for the great river was like a long tale, of both great joy and great woe. And it seemed to be a story road that a person could take, and it would take him to some place where he could free his mind. Men had striven against one another to control the unreeling river-road, battling at New Madrid and Island Number Ten, at Baton Rouge and Vicksburg, in the heat of the summer and the humid choking air of the malarial swamps. But the river carried away men and guns and the garbage of war, covering it over, washing itself clean again as if they had never been. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Goddard
#27. I don't accept flowers. I take nothing perishable. #Quote by Paulette Goddard
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Veronica Lake
#28. [on Paulette Goddard] It was her honesty I liked. #Quote by Veronica Lake
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Bruce Rousseau
#29. Growing tired of dishing out expensive cat food, Paulette started leaving sales receipts next to the bowl. Surely that would lead to some appreciation. #Quote by Bruce Rousseau
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#30. The world was in truth made of jackstraws. The world was very combustible, the human body was partible in ways heretofore unimagined. What held the civilized world together was the thinnest tissue of nothing but human will. Civilization was not in the natural order but was some wort of willed invention held taut like a fabric or a sail against the chaos of the winds. And why we had invented it, or how we knew to invent it, was beyond him.
Newmann had seen some truth that was completely out of his power to put into words. But he had come away knowing that even though the world of civilization was made of straw and lantern slides, he must live in it as if it were solid. Even when the heat of the lantern itself burnt away the illusions and a black hole appeared in the middle of the slide. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Edward Fahey
#31. There comes a hush between darkness and day.
Like expectation of a caress.
A murmur of silence.
Tree crests peeked down at Paulette through slowly lifting fog. Bark felt around for its texture again. Morning gathered and drifted through mere hints; through vague hopeful nuances of 'Just maybe'.
- From "The Gardens of Ailana" handbook for healers & mystics #Quote by Edward Fahey
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Edward Fahey
#32. [Charlie is dying:]
After what seemed a long while, but hadn't been, Marsh gave Paulette's hand a warm and caring squeeze. "They're here for him," she said.
But their heavenly visitors didn't take him right away. They had to make room for the chaos of modern medical urgencies. To get out of the way of well-trained professionals who had dedicated their lives to holding back Heaven.
Choppers are just as noisy and turbulent as we imagine them to be. One tore in over the hills and shattered every bit of peace Charlie otherwise could have lost himself into.
In an instant the Med-Evac team was all over him. In the midst of that blatant orchestrated chaos Paulette fought to find her peace, and to hold him inside it.
"Hang on, buddy," techs kept telling him. "Don't go leaving us now. You just hang in there."
But they didn't understand, Paulette thought. It was his time.
The chopper made a horrible racket carrying him off. Marsh, Paulette, and Ailana held their peace as its winds whipped their world into a froth.
Harve's face twisted with something that might conceivably have been rage.
Then, all of a sudden, the birds sang, as though someone had given them a cue.
"So that's what it's like," Marsha said, very softly.
"The afterlife.
"My God, it's so beautiful. #Quote by Edward Fahey
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Alden
#33. Her grandmother, as she gets older, is not fading but rather becoming more concentrated. #Quote by Paulette Alden
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#34. Johanna bent her head far back to look up into the leafy canopy and the rainy sky. There was a cautious wonder on her face. She said something in Kiowa in a low voice. So much water, such giant trees, each possessing a spirit. Drops like jewels cascaded from their spidery hands. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#35. Falls. He saw her bright, fierce little face break into laughter when the crowd laughed. It was good. Laughter is good for the soul and all your interior works. THAT #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Kathleen Tessaro
#36. Paulette shook her head and sighed. In her world Grace had failed to meet the responsibility of her own beauty. This was not just a waste but a sin. #Quote by Kathleen Tessaro
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#37. If people had true knowledge of the world perhaps they would not take up arms and so perhaps he could be an aggregator of information from distant places and then the world would be a more peaceful place. He had been perfectly serious. That illusion had lasted from age forty-nine to age sixty-five. And then he had come to think that what people needed, at bottom, was not only information but tales of the remote, the mysterious, dressed up as hard information. And he, like a runner, immobile in his smeared printing apron bringing it to them. Then the listeners would for a small space of time drift away into a healing place like curative waters. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Hank Green
#38. You don't get to know where April and I went. I've had enough of that. We're just here on planet Earth with the rest of the humans. Did we make a couple of not-super-well-thought-out financial decisions? Yeah, but we had to make a comfortable life for ourselves and Paulette. Paulette is our monkey. #Quote by Hank Green
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Alden
#39. Writing the short story is essentially an act of grace. It's not a matter of will so much as trust. I try to let the story do some of the work for me. It knows what it wants to do, say, be. I try not to stand in its way. #Quote by Paulette Alden
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Regan
#40. Under what circumstances would those who are the beneficiaries of colonialism stop denying and choose to act differently? #Quote by Paulette Regan
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette L. Jones
#41. My imagination thinks in paragraphs. #Quote by Paulette L. Jones
Bazbaz Paulette quotes by Paulette Jiles
#42. The road to hell was paved with the bones of men who did not know when to quit fighting. #Quote by Paulette Jiles
