Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#1. We are not ruled by blind instinct like the beasts. Uniquely, we can listen to the commands of God, can understand them, yet can choose disobedience. It is this, and only this, which gives our obedience its value. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#2. A puritan may go to his brown-bread crust with as gross an appetite as ever an alderman to his turtle. Not that food which entereth into the mouth defileth a man, but the appetite with which it is eaten. It is neither the quality nor the quantity, but the devotion to sensual savors; #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#3. Often it may seem that time has taken us very far from our origin. But if we take only a few more steps, we will round the corner and see a familiar place. And sometimes it may seem that in all our traveling we have returned to the place where we began. But although the view may be similar, it will never be identical; we should remember that there is no return. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Chuck Thompson
#4. Here's a secret intel bulletin for all y'all who've never left Yoknapatawpha County and imagine the United States is constantly on the precipice of enemy invasion - the only way this country is ever going to surrender its liberty to a foreign power is if it keeps electing corrupt officials who auction it away to multinational corporations and overseas government interests in exactly the fashion that southern star chambers have been doing to their own people throughout their entire dyspeptic history. #Quote by Chuck Thompson
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#5. There are persons who always believe in the imminent peril of the universe in general and of the Church of God in particular, and a sort of popularity is sure to be gained by always crying "Woe! Woe!" Prophets who will spiritually imitate Solomon Eagle, who went about the streets of London in the time of the plague, naked, with a pan of coals on his head, crying "Woe! Woe!" are thought to be faithful, though they are probably dyspeptic. We are not of that order: we dare not shut our eyes to the evils that surround us, but we are able to see the Divine power above us, and to feel it with us, working out its purposes of grace. We say to each of you what the Lord said to Joshua in the chapter we have just read, "Be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." Our trust is in the living God, who will bring ultimate victory to His own cause. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#6. It wasn't really as though I wanted either of them. I just expected them to be there when I needed them. I just expected that they'd stay where I put them, wouldn't cause trouble. They were both so obedient. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#7. There are those who believe all secrets to be guilty. If the truth is innocent, they declare, why can it not be revealed? The very existence of a secret indicates malice and wrongdoing. All should be open, all exposed. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Rami Malek
#8. I'm just trying to play against ethnicity. I got to play a guy from Louisiana in 'The Pacific' named Merriell Shelton, and now I'm playing Elliot Alderman. #Quote by Rami Malek
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#9. No wonder we spend our adult lives feeling we're simply pretending to know what we're doing. After sixteen years spent doing exams, where the lessons we've received perfectly fit the challenges we're faced with, our preparation for the unpredictable events of normal life will always seem shoddy and haphazard. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Eve Sedgwick
#10. Where the Gothic hero had been solipsistic, the bachelor hero is selfish. Where the Gothic hero had raged, the bachelor hero bitches. Where the Gothic hero had been suicidally inclined, the bachelor hero is a hypochondriac. The Gothic hero ranged from euphoria to despondency; the bachelor hero, from the eupeptic to the dyspeptic. #Quote by Eve Sedgwick
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#11. All you ever are is a reflection of other people. With Jess you were loyal, with me you're dissolute. What are you really? Nothing. You're all shadows and mirrors. All you've got is the power to ingratiate yourself with whoever you're around, to make them like you. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#12. He keeps looking at me so oddly."
"Oddly? How? Give me an imitation."
Considering that she had only about a second and a half to do it in, I must say it was a jolly fine exhibition. She opened her mouth and eyes pretty wide and let her jaw drop sideways, and managed to look so like a dyspeptic calf that I recognized the symptoms immediately.
"Oh, that's all right," I said. "No need to be alarmed. He's simply in love with you. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#13. On the thirteenth day of the fifth month of the third year after the Day of the Girls, Tatiana Moskalev brings her wealth and her connections, a little less than half her army, and many of her weapons to a castle in the hills on the borders of Moldova. And there she declares a new kingdom, uniting the coastal lands between the old forests and the great inlets and thus, in effect, declaring war on four separate countries, including the Big Bear herself. She calls the new country Bessapara, after the ancient people who lived there and interpreted the sacred sayings of the priestesses on the mountaintops. The international community waits for the outcome. The consensus is that the state of Bessapara cannot hold on for long.
Pg 98 #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#14. Ease, luxury, and plenty are not shameful, but they are not happiness. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Herman Melville
#15. Here was a man some twenty thousand miles from home, by the way of Cape Horn, that is - which was the only way he could get there - thrown among people as strange to him as though he were in the planet Jupiter; and yet he seemed entirely at his ease; preserving the utmost serenity; content with his own companionship; always equal to himself. Surely his was a touch of fine philosophy; though no doubt he had never heard there was such a thing as that. But, perhaps, to be a true philosopher, we mortals should not be conscious of so living or so striving. So soon as I hear that such or such a man gives himself out for a philosopher, I conclude that, like the dyspeptic old woman, he must have 'broken his digester. #Quote by Herman Melville
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#16. The women will die just as much as the men will if we bomb ourselves back to the Stone Age.

And then we'll be in the the Stone Age.

Er. Yeah.

And then there will be five thousand years of rebuilding, five thousand years where the only thing that matters is: can you hurt more, can you do more damage, can you instill fear?

Yeah?

And then the women will win. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#17. The only wave that changes anything is a tsunami. You have to tear down the houses and destroy that land if you want to be sure no one will forget you. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#18. The moon was absent, a circle of darkness denoting the possibility of presence, the inevitability of return. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#19. I was four years old when my mother died. It's young enough that I might never think of her. Old enough that the knowledge would always be with me. And I don't. And it is. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#20. Nothing special has happened today; no one can say she was more provoked than usual. It is only that every day one grows a little, every day something is different, so that in the heaping up of days suddenly a thing that was impossible has become possible. This is how a girl becomes a grown woman. Step by step until it is done. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#21. Fox News would say whatever makes the most people tune into Fox News. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#22. Sometimes I think that God is punishing me. For what we did together. Sometimes I think that my life is a punishment for wanting. And the wanting is a punishment, too. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#23. Tunde tries to imagine what it'd be like to have one. A power you can't give away or trade. He feels himself yearning for it, repulsed by it. He reads online forums where men say that if all the men in the world had one everything would be back to the way it ought to be. They're angry and afraid. He understands that. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Tracy Alderman
#24. It's one thing to have your partner tell you he or she has multiple personalities, and it's another to walk in on your partner and find him or her sitting on the bedroom floor, speaking in a child like voice, having a tea party with stuffed animals. #Quote by Tracy Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman

Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#26. She listens at doors and around corners. She has always had this habit. A child in danger must learn to pay more attention to the adults than a child loved and cherished. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#27. Even a stone is not the same as any other stone.
There is no shape to anything except the shape it has.
Every name we give ourselves is wrong.
Our dreams are more true than our waking. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#28. I came to a long, wide table. Table, it said. I am a table. All that I have ever been or ever will be is a table. And on the table was a book. And the book was him. I knew him y his words. Truthfully, I would have known him if he'd been a lamp, or a pot plant, or a scale model of the Long Island Expressway. But, appropriately enough, he was a book. The words on the cover were simple, good words. I don't remember what they were. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman

And the other answers, 'Because they could.'
That is the only answer there ever is. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#31. The shape of the power is always the same: it is infinite, it is complex, it is forever branching. While it is alive like a tree, it is growing; while it contains itself, it is multitude. Its directions are unpredictable; it obeys its own laws. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman

Dyspeptic Alderman quotes by Naomi Alderman
#34. All things, when measured in spans of years, seem simple. But human lives do not occur in years, but slowly, day by day. A year may be easy, but its days are hard indeed. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
