Cross Stitch quotes by Arundhati Roy
#1. At the time, there would only be incoherence. As though meaning had slunk out of things and left them fragmented. Disconnected. The glint of Ammu's needle. The colour of a ribbon. The weave of the cross-stitch counterpane. A door slowly breaking. Isolated things that didn't mean anything. As though the intelligence that decodes life's hidden patterns - that connects reflections to images, glints to light, weaves to fabrics, needles to thread, walls to rooms, love to fear to anger to remorse - was suddenly lost. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Cross Stitch quotes by Arundhati Roy
#2. Outside, the Air was Alert and Bright and Hot ... She could see the pattern of the cross-stitch flowers from the blue cross-stitch counterpane on Ammu's cheek. She could hear the blue cross-stitch afternoon.
The slow ceiling fan.
The sun behind the curtains.
The yellow wasp wasping against the windowpane in a dangerous dzzzzzzzzzzzz.
A disbelieving lizard's blink.
High-stepping chickens in the yard.
The sound of the sun crinkling the washing.Crisping white bed-sheets. Stiffened starched saris. Off white and gold.
Red ants on yellow stones.
A hot cow feeling hot. Ahmoo in the distance. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Cross Stitch quotes by Amy Harmon
#3. Crying from sweetness doesn't count," he whispered back, and I felt the moisture prick my eyes, just as I'd predicted. "Gi used to say happy tears watered our gratitude. She even had a cross-stitch that said as much. I thought it was stupid." I could hear the smile in his voice.
"Ah . . . so Gi was a believer in the five greats. #Quote by Amy Harmon
Cross Stitch quotes by Max Porter
#4. We will never fight again, our lovely, quick, template-ready arguments. Our delicate cross-stitch of bickers.

The house becomes a physical encyclopedia of no-longer hers, which shocks and shocks and is the principal difference between our house and a house where illness has worked away. Ill people, in their last day on Earth, do not leave notes stuck to bottles of red wine saying 'OH NO YOU DON'T COCK-CHEEK'. She was not busy dying, and there is no detritus of care, she was simply busy living, and then she was gone.

She won't ever use (make-up, turmeric, hairbrush, thesaurus).

She will never finish (Patricia Highsmith novel, peanut butter, lip balm).

And I will never shop for green Virago Classics for her birthday.

I will stop finding her hairs.


I will stop hearing her breathing. #Quote by Max Porter
Cross Stitch quotes by Jodi Ellen Malpas
#5. I really am prepared to push Sally for information. I'm dying to know what's put a huge smile on her face and provoked the introduction of scoop neck tops. 'What did you get up to at the weekend, Sal?' I ask casually as I dunk the biscuit tin. I catch her blushing again. I'm definitely onto something here. If she says she's done a cross-stitch and cleaned the windows, I'll hang myself. #Quote by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Cross Stitch quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#6. Why are you so weird?" "Because my weird has to be able to cancel out your weird, Lady Cross-stitch." "At least what I do is considered an art form," Chubs said. "Yes, in ye olde medieval Europe you would've been quite the catch - #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Cross Stitch quotes by Neal Stephenson
#7. Now there are many Shaftoes - mostly in Tennessee - but the Shaftoe family tree still fits on a cross-stitch sampler. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Cross Stitch quotes by Alan Titchmarsh
#8. Oh, and I have to mention one lady who does all of my book covers in cross stitch and frames them. Muriel. She's amazing. I just received one for my latest, Love And Dr Devon, actually. It's very sweet of her to do it. #Quote by Alan Titchmarsh
Cross Stitch quotes by Helen Simonson
#9. Youth's lost companion may be the measured friend of old age, I hope", said Daniel. "I may write a poem on the subject."
"Dear God, it sounds more like a cross-stitched pillow than a poem," said Hugh. #Quote by Helen Simonson
Cross Stitch quotes by Chris Cleave
#10. Here was the remainder of ten thousand educations, the bones drifted down to this depth. It was the fossil of one's country. She ached, because the war had cut the thin cord that bound each child to its ancestors with links made from cross-stitch and calligraphy. #Quote by Chris Cleave
Cross Stitch quotes by Timothy Keller
#11. Look at Jesus Christ. Every time he was in trouble he used the Word of God. When he was tempted he used the Word. When he was suffering on the cross he used the Word. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Cross Stitch quotes by Scott Hahn
#12. March 4 CHARITY is being rescued by the LORD I love you just as the Father loves me. ~ John 15:9 Someone asked an old chief "Why're you always talking about Jesus?" The chief didn't say anything. Instead, he collected some dry grass and twigs and put them into a circle. Next he caught a caterpillar, feeding on a nearby clump of weeds. He placed it inside the circle. Then, he took a match and set fire to the dry grass and the twigs. As the fire blazed up, the caterpillar began to search for an escape. At this point the old chief extended his finger to the caterpillar. Instantly, it climbed on to it. He said, "That's what Jesus did for me. I was like the caterpillar, without hope. Then Jesus rescued me. How can I not talk about my Savior's love and mercy?" ~ Mark Link, S.J. How grateful are you for what Jesus did for us? How do you show it concretely? It wasn't the nails that held Jesus on the cross but his love for us. ~ Author unknown #Quote by Scott Hahn
Cross Stitch quotes by Sarah Cross
#13. The whole morning was absurd. She'd never felt so angry, or aggressive, in her entire life. She didn't normally want to hit people, or even yell at them - because normally you could reason with people. And if you couldn't, you could avoid them. But Blue was impossible. He was so rude and belligerent and ... relentless about it. #Quote by Sarah Cross
Cross Stitch quotes by James Baldwin
#14. Yes, Mama. I'm going to try to love the Lord. At this there sprang into his mother's face something startling, beautiful, unspeakably sad - as though she were looking far beyond him at a long, dark road, and seeing on that road a traveler in perpetual danger. Was it he, the traveler? or herself? or was she thinking of the cross of Jesus? #Quote by James Baldwin
Cross Stitch quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#15. I wonder if you're not over-sensitive about your misfortune. Has it ever struck you to thank God for it? As long as you accept it rebelliously it can only cause you shame. But if you looked upon it as a cross that was given you to bear only because your shoulders were strong enough to bear it, a sign of God's favour, then it would be a source of happiness to you instead of misery. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Cross Stitch quotes by Caroline Linden
#16. Have you ever been kissed before?"
She flushed scarlet and had to wet her lips before she could speak. "Not well kissed..."
His shoulders shook. "Miss Cross, you leave me speechless." He cupped her jaw in his hand as his other hand came to the small of her back and pulled her against him. "I'll try to do better," he whispered against her mouth, and then he kissed her again.
If she had expected another soft touch of his lips against her, she was quickly proven wrong. This time, his mouth settled on hers with intent, firm and insistent. When she gasped at the difference, his tongue slid between her parted lips and teased her until she moaned. He kissed as if he meant to conquer her, and Eliza was all too happy to surrender. His hands moved over her, gripping her waist, sliding up her shoulders to hold the nape of her neck as his mouth traveled over her eyelids and down her jaw. She whimpered as his teeth grazed her earlobe, setting her earring swaying, and she almost melted when his hand brushed her breast. It was an accident, she thought wildly, because they were pressed so close together- somehow her hands had got around his chest, beneath his jacket- but then he did it again.
He muttered something profane and tore off his glove, and then it was his bare hand on her breast, his palm cupping her, his fingers teasing along the edge of her bodice until- oh, heavens- his thumb went right over her nipple. Eliza's start of shock turned into a shiver of ecstasy a #Quote by Caroline Linden
Cross Stitch quotes by Wayne Dyer
#17. Examine the labels you apply to yourself. Every label is a boundary or limit you will not let yourself cross. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Cross Stitch quotes by Mark Tufo
#18. How is that light still on, Talbot?" BT asked in hushed tones with a note of reverence in his voice. "There's a machine with Kit-Kats in there, do you have any change, Mr. T?" Tommy asked hopefully. It's amazing to me that all of us had known Tommy long enough that nobody even looked halfway cross-eyed at him at his pronouncement. If Tommy had said that a convention of clowns respite with balloon animals was in there singing Billy Joel songs, we would all have believed him. Of course I wouldn't have gone in, clowns are evil, but I still would have believed him. #Quote by Mark Tufo
Cross Stitch quotes by Kady Cross
#19. Why is it I only get to see you with your shirt off when you're hurt? #Quote by Kady Cross
Cross Stitch quotes by Claire Cross
#20. Stay home and the crooks win. They get the night, by default and concession, the night which should rightly belong to all of us. #Quote by Claire Cross
Cross Stitch quotes by Francine Rivers
#21. Come away with me and be my wife." She gave a harsh laugh. "If you want a wife, send for one by mail, or wait for the next wagon train to cross the mountains." He came toward her. "I can give you a good life. I don't care how you got here or where you've been before. Come with me now. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Cross Stitch quotes by Sanjay Madan
#22. People all around the world look different, they wear different kinds of clothes, prepare their food differently, and speak different languages, but their hearts beat for the same emotions -- this is the one and only universal human connection. #Quote by Sanjay Madan
Cross Stitch quotes by Rae Carson
#23. How long do you think it will take us to cross?" Jefferson asks.
"According to the Major, about three and a half days," I say, looking at the sky. "It's Monday afternoon. Maybe we'll be across by Thursday at sunrise."
He whistles. "I was happier before I knew that."
"Think of it this way: Once we cross, we're in California. Give or take a mountain range or two."
Therese says, "Then we're practically almost there. #Quote by Rae Carson
Cross Stitch quotes by Richard Beck
#24. The Harrowing of Hell is so important to the Eastern Orthodox Church that they reenact it during their Easter liturgy. The priest exits the church with a cross held high, and the congregation remains inside. The church doors are locked and the lights are turned off. The darkened church becomes hell, the Devil's jail. The priest then pounds on the doors of the church - symbolizing Christ assaulting the gates of Hades - proclaiming "Open the doors to the Lord of the powers, the king of glory!" Inside the church the people make a great noise of rattling chains, the resistance of hell to the coming of Christ. Eventually the doors are opened, the cross enters, and the church is lit and filled with incense. For the Orthodox, Easter is all about how Jesus defeats the power of death. #Quote by Richard Beck
Cross Stitch quotes by Sarah Cross
#25. We look good taped back together. #Quote by Sarah Cross
Cross Stitch quotes by David Platt
#26. People will never know how glorious the cross is until they know how serious sin is. #Quote by David Platt
Cross Stitch quotes by David Niven
#27. I have a face that is a cross between two pounds of halibut and an explosion in an old clothes closet. #Quote by David Niven
Cross Stitch quotes by Dave Chappelle
#28. The only way you can know where the line is, is if you cross it. #Quote by Dave Chappelle
Cross Stitch quotes by Melinda Cross
#29. We always protect our heads, our faces,' he commented as he followed a half-step behind and to her left. It's pure instinct; to shield the eyes. The irony is that the blind have no eyes to protect, and suffer most of their injuries on their legs. But instinct can be blind, too. #Quote by Melinda Cross
Cross Stitch quotes by Ingrid  Paulson
#30. How very bold to cross over into enemy territory," she said to the man. "Particularly when an old artifact like me doesn't believe in taking prisoners." The smile she gave him was wolfish and sure, and reminded me so much of Astrid I took a step back, not entirely sure if I should trust the woman standing in front of me. #Quote by Ingrid Paulson
Cross Stitch quotes by Wildbow
#31. Then I think about how you went out, and I think… you know, it doesn't balance out. One selfless deed, after all the shit you did? No. But that's your cross to bear, not mine. I don't believe in an afterlife or anything like that, but, well, I guess that's the mark you left. When we die, all that's left are the memories, the place we take in people's hearts. #Quote by Wildbow
Cross Stitch quotes by Christena Cleveland
#32. People can meet God within their cultural context but in order to follow God, they must cross into other cultures because that's what Jesus did in the incarnation and on the cross. #Quote by Christena Cleveland
Cross Stitch quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#33. Some men, as they age, grow kinder. I am not one of those, for I have seen how the cosmere can mistreat the innocent - and that leaves me disinclined toward kindness. Some men, as they age, grow wiser. I am not one of those, for wisdom and I have always been at cross-purposes, and I have yet to learn the tongue in which she speaks. Some men, as they age, grow more cynical. I, fortunately, am not one of those. If I were, the very air would warp around me, sucking in all emotion, leaving only scorn.
Other men...other men, as they age, merely grow stranger. I fear that I am one of those. I am the bones of a foreign species left drying on the plain that was once, long ago, a sea. A curiosity, perhaps a reminder, that all has not always been as it is now. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Cross Stitch quotes by Max Lucado
#34. When Jesus died on the cross, so did your sin; when He rose from the dead, so did your HOPE. #Quote by Max Lucado
Cross Stitch quotes by Julie Sondra Decker
#35. Asexual people are often told they will one day find "the one" and develop sexual feelings and the values society attaches to them. Many asexual folks have to hear this over and over and over again, which thrusts a perpetual image of immaturity upon them. Asexuality is not a signal that a person is necessarily stunted emotionally or physically, and feeling sexual attraction or inclination is not the line everyone must cross to be treated like an adult. Maturity should not be measured by willingness or inclination to seek out or accept sexual experiences. [p. 7] #Quote by Julie Sondra Decker
Cross Stitch quotes by Brit Trogen
#36. If this were a proper world, beautiful faces would belong to beautiful people. Good people with kind hearts and clever minds would always have bright eyes and dazzling smiles, and bad people would have scraggly hair and warty noses. That way if you saw one of them coming, you could cross to the other side of the street and avoid them altogether.
But this is not a proper world. In our world, many bad people look quite nice, and many good people are not beautiful at all. Many good people aren't pretty or cute or even interesting-looking. #Quote by Brit Trogen
Cross Stitch quotes by Joan Bauer
#37. Mom put dense cheddar bread into a bag for a man who said this was his wife's favorite - he'd driven all the way from New Jersey to buy it because today was their anniversary. Several women in the store jabbed their husbands on hearing this. I hung my head - Peter Terris wouldn't cross the street to buy me a Twinkie. #Quote by Joan Bauer
Cross Stitch quotes by Wilbur Smith
#38. I've eaten lion, leopard, crocodile, python. I don't recommend lion. It tastes exactly like when a tomcat comes into your house and sprays. Snake and crocodile are great - a cross between lobster and chicken. #Quote by Wilbur Smith
Cross Stitch quotes by Matt Chandler
#39. There is no error, no addiction with more power than the Cross of Christ. #Quote by Matt Chandler
Cross Stitch quotes by Francois Fenelon
#40. True love goes ever straight forward, not in its own strength, but esteeming itself as nothing. Then indeed we are truly happy. The cross is no longer a cross when there is no self to suffer under it. #Quote by Francois Fenelon
Cross Stitch quotes by Nick Bantock
#41. One of the key pleasures of receiving a letter is the act of holding and entering the envelope - a sort of cross between Christmas and sex. #Quote by Nick Bantock
Cross Stitch quotes by Haile Gebrselassie
#42. In the rainy season, sometimes to get to the first lesson we had to run really quick, because we had to cross the river to school and we'd have to go up and down the bank to find a place to cross because there is no bridge. #Quote by Haile Gebrselassie
Cross Stitch quotes by Georgette Heyer
#43. How cross you are!' marvelled Miss Thane. 'I suppose when one reaches middle age it is difficult to sympathize with the follies of youth.'
Sir Tristram had walked over to the other side of the room to pick up his coat and hat, but this was too much for him, and he turned and said with undue emphasis: 'It may interest you to know, ma'am, that I am one-and-thirty years old, and not yet in my dotage!'
'Why, of course not!' said Miss Thane soothingly. 'You have only entered upon what one may call the sober time of life. Let me help you to put on your coat!'
'Thank you,' said Sir Tristram. 'Perhaps you would also like to give me the support of your arm as far as to the door? #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Cross Stitch quotes by David Platt
#44. At the cross of Christ, God shows the full expression of both his wrath and his love, as Jesus is stricken, smitten, afflicted, wounded, crushed, and chastised for the sake of sinners. #Quote by David Platt
Cross Stitch quotes by Caterina Scorsone
#45. When I was three and a half years old, I heard my big sister tell my mum that at school that day all the kids sat on the floor and watched 'The Neverending Story.' Having never heard of the movie, I concluded that this was what school must be: sitting cross legged on the floor listening to a never-ending story. Page after page. #Quote by Caterina Scorsone
Cross Stitch quotes by Robert Moss
#46. Highly creative people have a gift for connecting supposedly unrelated elements and ideas. They cross borders without regard for customs posts or No Trespassing signs. They throw suspension bridges across great distances. These elegant and unexpected combinations flow together beautifully in the twilight zone, where metaphor and resemblance rules in place of logic and classification. #Quote by Robert Moss
Cross Stitch quotes by Melanie Dickerson
#47. A fresh wave of pain ripped though him and he let himself feel it, more than he ever had before, until it overwhelmed him.
"God, I cannot bear this pain."
'Cast your pain on Me. Let me bear it.'
Aladdin imagined Jesus hanging on the cross, in horrible pain. Yes, Jesus knew about pain and betrayal. Aladdin's pain might not go away completely, but he could let God carry his pain...God would bear the pain for him if he would cast it on Him.
Aladdin lay across his bed and felt a strange sense of peace wash over him. #Quote by Melanie Dickerson
Cross Stitch quotes by Alistair Cross
#48. I think horror, when done well, is one of the most direct and honest ways to get to the core of the human experience because terror reduces all of us to our most authentic forms. #Quote by Alistair Cross
Cross Stitch quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#49. The question of why evil exists is not a theological question, for it assumes that it is possible to go behind the existence forced upon us as sinners. If we could answer it then we would not be sinners. We could make something else responsible ... The theological question does not arise about the origin of evil but about the real overcoming of evil on the Cross; it ask for the forgiveness of guilt, for the reconciliation of the fallen world #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Cross Stitch quotes by John Stott
#50. The symbol of the religion of Jesus is the cross, not the scales. #Quote by John Stott
Cross Stitch quotes by John Vianney
#51. The sign of the cross is the most terrible weapon against the devil. Thus the Church wishes not only that we have it continually in front of our minds to recall to us just what our souls are worth and what they cost Jesus Christ, but also that we should make it at every juncture ourselves: when we go to bed, when we awaken during the night, when we get up, when we begin any action, and, above all, when we are tempted. #Quote by John Vianney
Cross Stitch quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
#52. Patch is the last person you want to antagonize. He doesn't hold grudges because the people who cross him tend to disappear quickly. #Quote by Becca Fitzpatrick
Cross Stitch quotes by Ben Macintyre
#53. It did his career no longterm damage, but Dudley Clarke's strange episode of cross-dressing remains an enduring mystery. #Quote by Ben Macintyre
Cross Stitch quotes by Yann Martel
#54. If Christ spent an anguished night in prayer, if He burst out from the Cross, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" then surely we are also permitted doubt. But we must move on. #Quote by Yann Martel
Cross Stitch quotes by Vincent Edwards
#55. You mean to tell me, you believe that Jesus was born by Mary without having sex? You believe that Jesus walked on water, he turned water into wine. You believe he made a blind man see, and made a dead man come back to life? This is funny, you believe that Jesus died on a cross and three days later came back to life, then moved a big rock to free himself. You believe THAT!!! But you can't believe in yourself??? When all he did was for you to believe. #Quote by Vincent Edwards
Cross Stitch quotes by Tom Stoppard
#56. A man breaking his journey between one place and another at a third place of no name, character, population or significance, sees a unicorn cross his path and disappear. That in itself is startling, but there are precedents for mystical encounters of various kinds, or to be less extreme, a choice of persuasions to put it down to fancy; until
"My God," says a second man, "I must be dreaming, I thought I saw a unicorn." At which point, a dimension is added that makes the experience as alarming as it will ever be. A third witness, you understand, adds no further dimension but only spreads it thinner, and a fourth thinner still, and the more witnesses there are the thinner it gets and the more reasonable it becomes until it is as thin as reality, the name we give to the common experience ... "Look, look!" recites the crowd. "A horse with an arrow in its forehead! It must have been mistaken for a deer. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
