Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#1. I thought both she [Gypsy Rose Lee] and her story would be ill-served by a conventional, birth-to-death narrative, and so I structured the book like one of her stripteases: revealing a peek of shoulder, then a glimpse of knee, pulling back a bit before you go a bit further, until all is revealed at the end. #Quote by Karen Abbott

Gypsy quotes by Alan Brennert
#8. We make a home for ourselves, every time we work on something: actors, writers, singers, building these little nests in our gypsy souls, in place of the ones we so seldom seem to make in our own lives. And then suddenly it's over, and we have to start again. #Quote by Alan Brennert
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe

Gypsy quotes by Hugh Laurie
#12. Some people are drawn naturally - there are natural guitarists, and there are natural piano players, and I think guitar implies travel, a sort of footloose gypsy existence. You grab your bag and you go to the next town. #Quote by Hugh Laurie
Gypsy quotes by Mishi McCoy
#13. I am care free by nature but that doesn't mean that I am careless or that I care less. I simply pass on passive-aggressive. Why dodge bullets? This world is not a place for cowards. If we are going to shoot then let's freaking shoot straight. Energy is easily recognized and understood. I don't make time anymore for people that I have to interpret beyond what they say and what they are really saying. It's not my Aspie nature. It is my angel nature. I know every thing isn't always black or white, but I am so over engaging with people who are 50 shades of grey. Be real with me or be gone....because if we aren't Really present with others then we are disconnected anyway. #Quote by Mishi McCoy
Gypsy quotes by Daniel Handler
#14. The Edith Head Trio, I would say, would be even less of a musical career than playing the accordion, particularly because I played the accordion in The Edith Head Trio. I'm very impressed by your Googling. The Edith Head Trio and another band, Tzamboni, were two bands I was in after college that played at tiny clubs to little acclaim. Our Gypsy tango version of "When Doves Cry" was our biggest hit.But we were not destined for greatness. #Quote by Daniel Handler
Gypsy quotes by Franz Liszt
#15. In the oldest chronicles of the times conserved in Hungary, reports will be found of Gypsy music, but never of any other, either Magyar, Slavic or Jewish. #Quote by Franz Liszt

Gypsy quotes by Melody  Lee
#17. He loved her like a roaring lion, even when she was most unlovable, and there's a lot to be said for that...that kind of fierce, raging, omnipotent love. #Quote by Melody Lee
Gypsy quotes by Karl Wiggins
#18. All Romani dialects – about 60 in all - contain Armenian words, proof if you will that the Lom Bosha passed through Armenia in the early 11th century, trading spices along the Great Silk Road, that network of ancient trade routes connecting China with the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. The Romani traded Armenian carpets, silk, dyes, lapis lazuli and tin, and it's no surprise that five capitals of Armenia are on The Great Silk Road. #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Gypsy quotes by H. Raven Rose
#19. This is your karma. You do not understand now, but you will understand later. The source of pain is within your own larger expression of being. #Quote by H. Raven Rose
Gypsy quotes by Margaret Weis

a black rose,

a gypsy heart,
a bright star.
Or you could simply say,
she's magic. #Quote by Melody Lee

Gypsy quotes by Paracelsus
#32. The universities do not teach all things ... so a doctor must seek out old wives, gypsies, sorcerers, wandering tribes, old robbers, and such outlaws and take lessons from them. A doctor must be a traveller ... Knowledge is experience. #Quote by Paracelsus
Gypsy quotes by Mary-Jean Harris
#33. You are one of us, one of those who knows without knowing, and one who will live and die in dreams that blend with this world. No, I am no gypsy, just one who has read a good many books. It is only through reading those great jewels of wisdom that one may see a story in a glint of sunlight, an epic unfold within one's eyes. There are books all around us. Yet it takes reading a good many books by we mortals to be able to see them. #Quote by Mary-Jean Harris
Gypsy quotes by Sam Raimi
#34. I'm not certain, but I have a little gypsy blood in me. And my mother always told me that her grandma could give someone the evil eye, and I'd better not cross her because she had some of that blood in her. Mother always believed that she could predict the future, and she had dreams that came true. #Quote by Sam Raimi
Gypsy quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#35. He studied me with his predator's gaze, assessing me from head to toe. I studied him back. He didn't just occupy space; he saturated it. The room had been full of books before, now it was full of him. About thirty, six foot two or three, he had dark hair, golden skin, and dark eyes. His features were strong, chiseled. I couldn't pinpoint his nationality any more than I could his accent; some kind of European crossed with Old World Mediterranean or maybe an ancestor with dark Gypsy blood. He wore an elegant, dark gray Italian suit, a crisp white shirt, and a muted patterned tie. He wasn't handsome. That was too calm a word. He was intensely masculine. He was sexual. He attracted. There was an omnipresent carnality about him, in his dark eyes, in his full mouth, in the way he stood. He was the kind of man I wouldn't flirt with in a million years. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Gypsy quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#36. Cam leaned over the bedside, clasping Jenner's hands in his just as Evie had done. "Father of my heart," the young Gypsy said softly, "be at peace with every soul you leave behind. And know that God will open your way in the new life. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Gypsy quotes by John Masefield
#37. Sea-fever
I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over. #Quote by John Masefield
Gypsy quotes by Gypsy Rose Lee
#38. I have everything I had twenty years ago, only it's all a little bit lower. #Quote by Gypsy Rose Lee
Gypsy quotes by Marg McAlister
#39. How could anyone resist. A gypsy, an ex-forest ranger and a couple of retro sales gals." He glanced around at the ice cream sorbet colors of Layla's trailer. "I can imagine us all rolling up to a crime scene in this. #Quote by Marg McAlister
Gypsy quotes by Joanne Harris
#40. For a time, then, we stay. For a time. Till the changes. #Quote by Joanne Harris
Gypsy quotes by Tracy J. Butler
#41. Old Man River!

That seems far too austere a name
For something made of mirth and rage.
O, roiling red-blood river vein,
If chief among your traits is age,
You're a wily, convoluted sage.

Is "old" the thing to call what rings
The vernal heart of wester-lore;
What brings us brassy-myth made kings
(And preponderance of bug-type things)
To challenge titans come before?
Demiurge to a try at Avalon-once-more!

And what august vitality
In your wide aorta stream
You must have had to oversee
Alchemic change of timber beam
To iron, brick and engine steam.

Your umber whiskey waters lance
The prideful sober sovereignty
Of faulty-haloed Temperance
And wilt her self-sure countenance;
Yes, righteousness is vanity,
But your sport's for imps, not elderly.

If there's a name for migrant mass
Of veteran frivolity
That snakes through seas of prairie grass
And groves of summer sassafras,
A name that flows as roguishly
As gypsy waters, fast and free,
It's your real name, Mississippi. #Quote by Tracy J. Butler
Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#42. A half-century before Madonna, Gypsy [Rose Lee] understood how to make performance out of desire, how to exploit the very human and eternal instinct to always want most what we'll never have. #Quote by Karen Abbott
Gypsy quotes by Qwana Reynolds-Frasier
#43. LOVE IS NOMADIC
AND I'M A GYPSY SOUL
SO LOVE GOES WHEREVER
I GO #Quote by Qwana Reynolds-Frasier
Gypsy quotes by N.D. Wilson
#44. Give me priests. Give me men with feathers in their hair, or tall domed hats, female oracles in caves, servants of the python, smoking weed and reading palms. A gypsy fortuneteller with a foot-peddle ouija board and a gold fish bowl for a crystal ball knows more about the world than many of the great thinkers of the West. Mumbling priests swinging stink cans on their chains and even witch doctors conjuring up curses with a well-buried elephant tooth have a better sense of their places in the world. They know this universe is brimming with magic, with life and riddles and ironies. They know that the world might eat them, and no encyclopedia could stop it #Quote by N.D. Wilson
Gypsy quotes by Gypsy Rose Lee
#45. I have everything I had 20 years ago, only it's all a little lower. #Quote by Gypsy Rose Lee
Gypsy quotes by Madison Thorne Grey
#46. A slow, knowing smile came over Keirah's face. Her heart filled with happiness, believing the Gwarda gypsy sitting next to her at this very moment was worthy of her beloved sister. #Quote by Madison Thorne Grey
Gypsy quotes by Melody  Lee
#47. Storms,
those whirlwinds and symphonies
in the sky,
nourish her midnight soul
and comfort her gypsy spirit.
Those tempests amplify
the starlight in her eyes,
the moonbeams in her veins. #Quote by Melody Lee
Gypsy quotes by Carol Birch
#48. Mr. Jamrach led me through the lobby and into the menagerie. The first was a parrot room, a fearsome screaming place of mad round eyes, crimson breasts that beat against bars, wings that flapped against their neighbours, blood red, royal blue, gypsy yellow, grass green. The birds were crammed along perches. Macaws hung upside down here and there, batting their white eyes, and small green parrots flittered above our heads in drifts. A hot of cockatoos looked down from on high over the shrill madness, high crested, creamy breasted. The screeching was like laughter in hell. #Quote by Carol Birch
Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#49. She [Gypsy Rose Lee] was a sophisticated self-satirist with a contagious delight in the comedy of sex. She was coy; she was sly; she always had a witty quip; she had an intensely dramatic presence. #Quote by Karen Abbott
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#50. You never cage a woman like that. If you can't adore her in her element, she will never allow you into her temple of peace, the private place she goes to master it all.
The world sees her light, she Chooses wisely who gets the keys to unlock her story pain. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Gypsy quotes by Jacques Yonnet
#51. For all that, I don't think Gypsies ought to be likened to birds of ill-omen. They return evil for evil, and good for good. One hundredfold. Their powers seem to exceed them. I knew some in Spain who could read the stars; in Germany, who could heal burns; in the Camargue, who tended horses and could lessen the birthing pains of both women and beasts.

There are some human beings who are not bound by human laws. The sad thing is perhaps they're not all aware of it.

Meanwhile, here's an idea I volunteer: the day when the borders of Europe and elsewhere become, as they once were, open to the movement of nomadic tribes that some regard as 'worrisome', it would be interesting if researchers qualified in astronomy (yes, indeed), with calenders and terrestrial and celestial maps to hand, were to examine the routes travelled by wandering Gypsies.

Maybe they'll discover that these slow and apparently aimless journeys are related to cosmic forces. Like wars. And migrations.

The Gypsies were persecuted, in France and elsewhere, with cyclical regularity in a vicious, inept and stupid manner. Almost as much as the Jews. #Quote by Jacques Yonnet
Gypsy quotes by Renee O'Connor
#52. I think I'll always be a theater gypsy at heart. #Quote by Renee O'Connor
Gypsy quotes by Noomi Rapace
#53. I think most gypsies all over the world are used to being not really welcome and always on the run, expecting people to not like them and to be critical. #Quote by Noomi Rapace
Gypsy quotes by Ewan MacColl
#54. All you freeborn men of the travelling people
Every tinker, rolling stone and gypsy rover
Winds of change are blowing, old ways are going
Your travelling days will soon be over #Quote by Ewan MacColl
Gypsy quotes by Kristy Cunning
#55. Violet is missing, and it seems Vance is as well," Damien says on a huff as he exits.

"Why the bloody hell would he leave with her directly after a wolf attack?" I ask as I start toward the door, finishing off my drink. "Without a word?"

"I'm not sure he left with her, so much as chased after her, since it looks like he found her note first," Damien says as he jogs down the stairs.

I have the paper snatched out of his hand before he realizes it's missing, and I flip it over, reading it.

DO NOT FOLLOW ME. THIS VACATION SUCKS TOO HARD TO STAY. I'M GOING HOME TO RELAX.

Sincerely,

the SINGLE gypsy girl who can think for herself

P.S. I'LL KEY YOUR FUCKING CARS if you come looking for me before I'm ready to deal with you again.

"Little rude to leave so soon, considering how hard I worked to find out where the hell you'd all gone," I point out before walking out the door.

I'm gone before they can further delay me.

"She put it in shouty caps!" Damien calls to my back, though I have no idea what the hell that's supposed to mean. #Quote by Kristy Cunning
Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#56. Gypsy [Rose Lee], who was called Louise as a kid, gave her first performances here with her sister [June Hovac], playing for the local Masonic lodge halls. It was a tight-knit community, and the support and success the act enjoyed here enabled them to hit the road and make it in big-time vaudeville. #Quote by Karen Abbott
Gypsy quotes by Cher Lloyd
#57. I'll always stand by my Gypsy roots, and I'll always help out one of my own. #Quote by Cher Lloyd
Gypsy quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#58. Have you had this place inspected?" he asked. "The house is ready to fall off its timbers. I couldn't risk coming in here without offering a quick prayer to Butyakengo."
"Who?"
"A Gypsy protective spirit." He smiled at her. "But now that I'm here, I'll take my chances. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Gypsy quotes by Gypsy Rose Lee
#59. I wasn't naked, I was completely covered by a blue spotlight. #Quote by Gypsy Rose Lee
Gypsy quotes by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
#60. I love the Autumn,
And yet I cannot say
All the thoughts and things
That make me feel this way.

I love walking on the angry shore,
To watch the angry sea;
Where summer people were before,
But now there's only me.

I love wood fires at night
That have a ruddy glow.
I stare at the flames
And think of long ago.

I love the feeling down inside me
That says to run away
To come and be a gypsy
And laugh the gypsy way.

The tangy taste of apples,
The snowy mist at morn,
The wanderlust inside you
When you hear the huntsman's horn.

Nostalgia - that's the Autumn,
Dreaming through September
Just a million lovely things
I always will remember. #Quote by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
Gypsy quotes by Arthur Rimbaud
#61. On the blue summer evenings, I will go along the paths,
And walk over the short grass, as I am pricked by the wheat:
Daydreaming I will feel the coolness on my feet.
I will let the wind bathe my bare head. I will not speak,
I will have no thoughts: But infinite love will mount in my soul;
And I will go far, far off, like a gypsy,
through the countryside - as happy as if I were a woman.
Sensation #Quote by Arthur Rimbaud
Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#62. When Gypsy was older, after she became Gypsy Rose Lee, I think she was both proud and slightly ashamed of her Seattle roots. She worked very hard to rid her voice of any trace of a local accent, cultivating an affected way of speaking that sounded as if she pinned the ends of her words. #Quote by Karen Abbott
Gypsy quotes by Et Imperatrix Noctem
#63. The Universe has faith in you even if you don't.' the Gypsy Queen said, 'That why I am here, to be a thread of your tapestry, even you couldn't see the whole picture quite just yet. #Quote by Et Imperatrix Noctem
Gypsy quotes by Coco J. Ginger
#64. He's a gypsy killer. He has a special gypsy killing knife. #Quote by Coco J. Ginger
Gypsy quotes by S.J Perelman
#65. FREEDLEY: Will I feel better after I take it? DR. FITCH (coldly): I, am a physician, Freedley, not an astrologer. If you want a horoscope, there's a gypsy tearoom over on Lexington Avenue. #Quote by S.J Perelman
Gypsy quotes by Gerald Brenan
#66. Poets and painters are outside the class system, or rather they constitute a special class of their own, like the circus people and the Gypsies. #Quote by Gerald Brenan
Gypsy quotes by Susan Johnson
#67. …she sipped her drink and tried not to stare at Dalgliesh. But he was murderously handsome, dark as a gypsy, with sleepy, bedroom eyes, his hunter's gaze shuttered now that he was lounging relaxed in his chair, his brandy glass resting on his chest. His legs were stretched out before him… #Quote by Susan Johnson
Gypsy quotes by Victor Hugo
#68. Do you know what friendship is?' he asked.
'Yes,' replied the gypsy; 'it is to be brother and sister; two souls which touch without mingling, two fingers on one hand.'
'And love?' pursued Gringoire.
'Oh! love!' said she, and her voice trembled, and her eye beamed. 'That is to be two and to be but one. A man and a woman mingled into one angel. It is heaven. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Gypsy quotes by Karishma Magvani
#69. Everyone is looking to find someplace to call home but having one can mess you up leaving you perpetually stuck. #Quote by Karishma Magvani
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#70. Most girls want the world, i just want you and a sunset. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Gypsy quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#71. He stared at her steadily. If we were eating Gypsy-style, sitting before a fire, I would offer you the choicest bites of meat. The soft inside of the bread. The sweetest sections of fruit. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Gypsy quotes by Matt Ridley
#72. No horoscope matches this accuracy. No theory of human causality, Freudian, Marxist, Christian or animist, has ever been so precise. No prophet in the Old Testament, no entrail-grazing oracle in ancient Greece, no crystal-ball gypsy clairvoyant on the pier at Bognor Regis ever pretended to tell people exactly when their lives would fall apart, let alone got it right. #Quote by Matt Ridley
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#73. She's a gypsy girl living in a materialistic world,
Unattached to most things but in love with life itself. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Gypsy quotes by Rita Dove
#74. Three miles from my adopted city
lies a village where I came to peace.
The world there was a calm place,
even the great Danube no more
than a pale ribbon tossed onto the landscape
by a girl's careless hand. Into this stillness

I had been ordered to recover.
The hills were gold with late summer;
my rooms were two, plus a small kitchen,
situated upstairs in the back of a cottage
at the end of the Herrengasse.
From my window I could see onto the courtyard
where a linden tree twined skyward -
leafy umbilicus canted toward light,
warped in the very act of yearning -
and I would feed on the sun as if that alone
would dismantle the silence around me.

At first I raged. Then music raged in me,
rising so swiftly I could not write quickly enough
to ease the roiling. I would stop
to light a lamp, and whatever I'd missed -
larks flying to nest, church bells, the shepherd's
home-toward-evening song - rushed in, and I
would rage again.

I am by nature a conflagration;
I would rather leap
than sit and be looked at.
So when my proud city spread
her gypsy skirts, I reentered,
burning towards her greater, constant light.

Call me rough, ill-tempered, slovenly - I tell you,
every tenderness I have ever known
has been nothing
but thwarted violence, an ache
so permanent and #Quote by Rita Dove
Gypsy quotes by William Bliss
#75. There is something in October sets the gypsy blood astir: We must rise and follow her, When from every hill of flame She calls, and calls each vagabond by name. #Quote by William Bliss
Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#76. Gypsy [Rose Lee] is as unique as she is timeless. Her story is classic Americana, and the strangest rags-to-riches saga you'll ever read; I like to call it Horatio Alger meets Tim Burton. #Quote by Karen Abbott
Gypsy quotes by Jennifer Estep
#77. You won't hurt me. I know you won't." Logan said.
"How can you be so sure?" I whispered.
"Because you're that Gypsy girl, and I'm the bad-boy Spartan. And I think it's time we were finally together, don't you? #Quote by Jennifer Estep
Gypsy quotes by Nina Bangs
#78. I still don't know why we didn't hire a car
to get around Ireland."
"When I was a kid, I always dreamed about living in Ireland. I used to pretend I was one of
the traveling people, driving my gypsy wagon from village to village. Used to picture a dark
gypsy kidnapping me and having his way with me. Exciting stuff." Katy grinned at her. "Could
still happen, you know."
"Katy, we have a horse that's so laid-back I have to keep checking to see if he's dead. #Quote by Nina Bangs
Gypsy quotes by John Clellon Holmes
#79. He'd been toting it, and checking it, and packing and unpacking, all the way since fate was on the river - that's how long - the Big River - Fate Marable and his riverboat caliope (Cleo seemed to recall), who hadastonished the landings between New Orleans and St. Louis with the wild, harsh, skirling Gypsy music, and left there, echoing in the young and restless even as it dies off round the bed; to linger with them thereafter, in the pelting roar of November midnights and the clickety-clack of lonesome valley freights, until they up one night and go after it in a battered bus, following the telephone wires that make a zigzag music staff against the evening sky - some variation of that basic beginning could be told for everyone who jazz has touched and altered. #Quote by John Clellon Holmes
Gypsy quotes by Barbara Kyle
#80. Alana Marks had always known she was different. From her gypsy childhood, to the way she now made her living in the movies, she'd always lived on the edge. She'd been paid to leap from a sixteenth story window, roll a car to a cliff edge, get thrown off a speeding train and dragged into a river by a runaway horse. At the moment, she was about to set herself on fire and jump out of a burning barn. #Quote by Barbara Kyle
Gypsy quotes by Ken Ilgunas
#81. As a country, we take out loans and go to school. We take out loans and buy a car. We take out loans and buy a home. It's not always that we simply "want" these things. Rather, it's often the case that we use our obligations as confirmations that "We're doing something." If we have things to pay for, we need a job. If we have a job, we need a car. If we have such things, we have a life, albeit an ordinary and monotonous life, but a life no less. If we have debt, we have a goal-- we have a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Debt narrows our options. It gives us a good reason to stick it out at a job, sink into sofas, and savor the comforts of the status quo. Debt is sought so we have a game to play, a battle to fight, a mythology to live out. It gives us a script to read, rules to abide by, instructions to follow. And when we see someone who doesn't play by our rules-- someone who's spurned the comforts of hearth and home-- we shift in our chairs and call him or her crazy. We feel a fury for the hobo and the hitchhiker, the hippie and gypsy, the vagrant and nomad-- not because we have any reason to believe these people will do us any harm, but because they make us feel uncomfortable.They remind us of the inner longings we've squelched, the hero or heroine we've buried beneath a houseful of junk, the spirit we've exorcised out of ourselves so we could remain with our feet on the ground, stable and secure. #Quote by Ken Ilgunas
Gypsy quotes by James M. Cain
#82. O.K."
"Gee I'm glad."
"Me too. I'm so sick of hot dogs and beer and apple pie with cheese on the side I could heave it all in the river."
"You'll love it, Frank. We'll get a place up in the mountains, where it's cool, and then, after I get my act ready, we can go all over the world with it. Go as we please, do as we please, and have plenty of money to spend. Have you got a little bit of gypsy in you?"
"Gypsy? I had rings in my ears when I was born. #Quote by James M. Cain
Gypsy quotes by Dmitri Shostakovich
#83. I don't renounce my interest in gypsy songs. I don't see anything shameful in it, as opposed to, say, Prokofiev, who pretended to be enraged when he heard such music. He probably had a better musical education than I did. But at least I'm not a snob. #Quote by Dmitri Shostakovich
Gypsy quotes by Peace Gypsy
#84. What brings people to how they feel is usually things that they themselves thought. #Quote by Peace Gypsy
Gypsy quotes by Karl Wiggins
#85. Gypsies, as you know, often seem sinister to the rest of us, but that's only because they have character. Travelling from town to town, living in caravans, buying or selling whatever is at hand.
The adventure of it all #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Gypsy quotes by Stevie Nicks
#86. I'm the original hunter-down-of-fabulous-things. Twenty years ago I sat down and decided that I would create a really wonderful image, an unforgettable image. And now I'm kind of stuck with it. It's like when I don't wear my fringy, gypsy stuff, people kind of look at me like, 'What's wrong? #Quote by Stevie Nicks
Gypsy quotes by Gypsy Rose Lee
#87. You don't have to be naked to look naked. You just have to think naked. #Quote by Gypsy Rose Lee
Gypsy quotes by Peace Gypsy
#88. My future is what I make it, and my past is what made me!!! #Quote by Peace Gypsy
Gypsy quotes by Ming-Na Wen
#89. I'm sort of a gypsy at heart and don't like to stay in one place too long. #Quote by Ming-Na Wen
Gypsy quotes by Sheldon Vanauken
#90. ... though I wouldn't have admitted it, even to myself, I didn't want God aboard. He was too heavy. I wanted Him approving from a considerable distance. I didn't want to be thinking of Him. I wanted to be free - like Gypsy. I wanted life itself, the color and fire and loveliness of life. And Christ now and then, like a loved poem I could read when I wanted to. I didn't want us to be swallowed up in God. I wanted holidays from the school of Christ. #Quote by Sheldon Vanauken
Gypsy quotes by Melody  Lee
#91. She doesn't burn bridges,
she covers them in gypsy flowers
and feather kisses,
then strolls along her merry way.
Too heavy to carry grudges,
she leaves love and hope droplets
wherever she goes. #Quote by Melody Lee
Gypsy quotes by Lena Headey
#92. I always have scarves handy; they're my indulgence. I buy them at an L.A. shop called Lost & Found. I'll spray one with loads of my Byredo Gypsy Water perfume, put it on and be like, 'Ah, this feels good.' #Quote by Lena Headey
Gypsy quotes by Patti Smith
#93. Inside it he inscribed a few lines of poetry, portraying us as the gypsy and the fool, one creating silence; one listening closely to the silence. In the clanging twirl of our lives, these roles would reverse many times #Quote by Patti Smith
Gypsy quotes by Madison Thorne Grey
#94. I'm pleased to know you realize she is mine, gypsy. Care to explain why it is that I find you here in the Gwarda arena and touching what belongs to me? #Quote by Madison Thorne Grey
Gypsy quotes by Shirley A. Martin
#95. Maybe she saw the sweet persimmon sunrise-or maybe she was already too far gone. #Quote by Shirley A. Martin
Gypsy quotes by Roo Bardookie
#96. by the light of Gypsy fires, my sister and I came of age way too soon

our childhoods were swept away #Quote by Roo Bardookie
Gypsy quotes by Sylvia Plath
#97. DADDY

You do not do, you do not do
Any more, black shoe
In which I have lived like a foot
For thirty years, poor and white,
Barely daring to breathe or Achoo.

Daddy, I have had to kill you.
You died before I had time―
Marble-heavy, a bag full of God,
Ghastly statue with one grey toe
Big as a Frisco seal

And a head in the freakish Atlantic
When it pours bean green over blue
In the waters of beautiful Nauset.
I used to pray to recover you.
Ach, du.

In the German tongue, in the Polish town
Scraped flat by the roller
Of wars, wars, wars.
But the name of the town is common.
My Polack friend

Says there are a dozen or two.
So I never could tell where you
Put your foot, your root,
I never could talk to you.
The tongue stuck in my jaw.

It stuck in a barb wire snare.
Ich, ich, ich, ich,
I could hardly speak.
I thought every German was you.
And the language obscene

An engine, an engine
Chuffing me off like a Jew.
A Jew to Dachau, Auschwitz, Belsen.
I began to talk like a Jew.
I think I may well be a Jew.

The snows of the Tyrol, the clear beer of Vienna
Are not very pure or true.
With my gypsy ancestress and my weird luck
And my Taroc pack and my Taroc pack
I may be a bit of a Jew.

I have always been scared of you,
With #Quote by Sylvia Plath

#100. Kiss her gypsy soul and love her for the wild rose she is. #Quote by Melody Lee
Gypsy quotes by Christopher Lee
#101. My father's family can be traced back to 1400. I've been told by gypsies that there is unmistakeably gypsy blood in me. Lee is a gypsy name, you know. #Quote by Christopher Lee
Gypsy quotes by Twiggy
#102. I prefer 100 per cent cotton Ts. They are kinder to lumps and bumps than figure-hugging stretchy Lycra ones and feel nicer against the skin. Extra-long-sleeved T-shirts are a lifesaver for me. I wear them either underneath a shirt with the sleeve pulled out of the cuff, or underneath gypsy tops, tunic tops and waistcoats. #Quote by Twiggy
Gypsy quotes by Rhys Ford
#103. And don't ye be adding any more bows to that. God help ye, it looked like a blind gypsy dropped off a tribute to Herne in your living room. #Quote by Rhys Ford
Gypsy quotes by Emir Kusturica
#104. The advantage of the gypsy language, even though I don't understand it that much, the language is perfect melody. So if you propose the movie the way I do, then the language is just one part of the melody. Orchestrating all inside, and the language is following the meaning of what they say, and it's never the same as written. #Quote by Emir Kusturica
Gypsy quotes by Peace Gypsy
#105. Every tomorrow is better because you opened your eyes, but still, memories from your past are meant to be shared and cherished #Quote by Peace Gypsy
Gypsy quotes by Johnny Mercer
#106. Skylark,Have you seen a valley green with SpringWhere my heart can go a-journeying,Over the shadows in the rainTo a blossom covered lane?And in your lonely flight,Haven't you heard the music in the night,Wonderful music,Faint as a will-o-the-wisp,Crazy as a loon,Sad as a gypsy serenading the moon. #Quote by Johnny Mercer

Gypsy quotes by Charles Dickens
#110. It was one of those scenes of life and animation, caught in its very brightest and freshest moments, which can scarcely fail to please; for if the eye be tired of show and glare, or the ear be weary with a ceaseless round of noise, the one may repose, turn almost where it will, on eager, happy, and expectant faces, and the other deaden all consciousness of more annoying sounds in those of mirth and exhilaration. Even the sunburnt faces of gypsy children, half naked though they be, suggest a drop of comfort. It is a pleasant thing to see that the sun has been there; to know that the air and light are on them every day; to feel that they are children, and lead children's lives; that if their pillows be damp, it is with the dews of Heaven, and not with tears; that the limbs of their girls are free, and that they are not crippled by distortions, imposing an unnatural and horrible penance upon their sex; that their lives are spent, from day to day, at least among the waving trees, and not in the midst of dreadful engines which make young children old before they know what childhood is, and give them the exhaustion and infirmity of age, without, like age, the privilege to die. God send that old nursery tales were true, and that gypsies stole such children by the score! #Quote by Charles Dickens
Gypsy quotes by James Badge Dale
#111. I grew up in a crazy, gypsy-like household of actors, dancers and loony Broadway people. It was their way of life, and I didn't know anything else. #Quote by James Badge Dale
Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#112. I don't consider 'American Rose' to be a biography so much as a microcosm of 20th-century America, told through Gypsy's tumultuous life - it's 'Horatio Alger meets Tim Burton.' #Quote by Karen Abbott
Gypsy quotes by Peace Gypsy
#113. Stay strong. Don't worry about things you cannot change and don't worry about things changing that you cannot stop. #Quote by Peace Gypsy
Gypsy quotes by Nora Roberts
#114. Within months, Ray Quinn had died, but he'd kept his word. He'd kept it through the three men he'd made his sons. Those men had given the scrawny, suspicious, and scarred young boy a life.
They had given him a home, and made him a man.
Cameron, the edgy, quick-tempered gypsy; Ethan, the patient, steady waterman; Phillip, the elegant, sharp-minded executive. They had stood for him, fought for him. They had saved him.
His brothers. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Gypsy quotes by Gypsy Rose Lee
#115. I've got everything I had 20 years ago, except now it's all lower. #Quote by Gypsy Rose Lee
Gypsy quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#116. It doesn't occur to me at this moment to say more; another time, perhaps tomorrow, I may have more to say, but always the same thing and about the same, for only gypsies, robber gangs and swindlers follow the adage that where a person has once been he is never to go again. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Gypsy quotes by Richard Kadrey
#117. Let me make sure I have this straight. The cavalry just now rode into town and it's a Czech Gypsy porn-star zombie killer. Have I got that right? #Quote by Richard Kadrey
Gypsy quotes by Jimmy Johnson
#118. But I was always a bit of a gypsy, anyway. I spent five years at Oklahoma State, five years at Miami and moved on after winning the national championship, and five years with the Cowboys. So, I was ready to move on. We won back-to-back Super Bowls, and I felt that I accomplished what I wanted to accomplish. #Quote by Jimmy Johnson
Gypsy quotes by Sarah Thornton
#119. The term bohemian has a bad reputation because it's allied to myriad clichés, but Parisians originally adopted the term, associated with nomadic Gypsies, to describe artists and writers who stayed up all night and ignored the pressures of the industrial world. #Quote by Sarah Thornton
Gypsy quotes by Dolly Parton
#120. A gypsy told me I was going to do great things. I was going to make all kinds of money. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Gypsy quotes by Paulo Coelho
#121. When people consult me,it's not that I'm reading the future;I am guessing at the future.The future belongs to God,and it is only he who reveals it,under extraordinary circumstances.How do I guess at the future?Based on the omens of the present.The secret is here in the present.If you pay attention to the present,you can improve upon it.

Gypsy quotes by Niall Matter
#122. I'm a little bit of a gypsy myself. I've always had jobs where I'm moving around and I'm not sure what's going to happen tomorrow or the next day. #Quote by Niall Matter
Gypsy quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#123. I regret that I am not clear as to what you intend by 'arisch'. I am not of Aryan extraction: that is Indo-Iranian; as far as I am aware none of my ancestors spoke Hindustani, Persian, Gypsy, or any related dialects. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Gypsy quotes by Hedy Lamarr
#124. One of my favorite people is Gypsy Rose Lee. She bears out the Biblical promise that he who has, gets. And I hope she gets a lot more. #Quote by Hedy Lamarr
Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#125. It was a great challenge to reconstruct Gypsy Rose Lee life, and my interviews with her sister [June Havoc] proved invaluable. It's not often that writers have access to living primary source material; this was the only person who experienced life on the vaudeville circuit with Gypsy during the 1920s, and who saw her perform at Minsky's Burlesque in the 1930s. She knew things that no one else could ever possibly know. #Quote by Karen Abbott
Gypsy quotes by Neil Peart
#126. And me, I've got to start all over. Not only build a new life, but construct a new person. I call my old self "that other guy," for I share nothing but his memories, and everything he ever liked I've had to discover all over again, one by one, so that I've held on to, for example, reading, motorcycling, and birdwatching, but I'm not yet sure about art or music (I can look at it or listen to it, but not with the same "engagement" I used to), and I have no interest in work, charity, world events, or anybody I don't know. In my present gypsy life, I encounter a lot of people every day, and some of them I instinctively like and respond to in a brief encounter at a gas station or small-town diner, but for the most part I look around at ugly and mean-spirited people and think, "Why are you alive? #Quote by Neil Peart
Gypsy quotes by Gypsy Rose Lee
#127. Praying is like a rocking chair - it'll give you something to do, but it won't get you anywhere. #Quote by Gypsy Rose Lee
Gypsy quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
#128. As to whether Marcos is gay: Marcos is gay in San Francisco, black in South Africa, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, ... a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10pm, a peasant without land, a gang member in the slums, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student and, of course, a Zapatista in the mountains. #Quote by Subcomandante Marcos
Gypsy quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#129. Are you not scared by seeing that the gypsies are more attractive to us than the apostles? #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Gypsy quotes by Klaus Kinski
#130. The flamenco of the Gypsy has nothing to do with the flamenco for tourists. Real flamenco is like sex. #Quote by Klaus Kinski
Gypsy quotes by Karl Wiggins
#131. If someone skilled at studying moons, planets, stars and other celestial bodies such as galaxies, comets, asteroids and gamma-ray bursts were to analyse the Romani migration and settlement patterns, as they wandered India and Persia 1500 years ago, passing through Armenia in the early 9th century, trading spices, incense, rugs, fabrics, colouring agents and jewellery along the Great Silk Road, and then beginning to establish themselves in Europe, arriving in Transylvania in the 13th century, and then onto Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France and England in the 14th century they may very well discover that their routes mirrored that of the stars #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Gypsy quotes by Jean Cocteau
#132. The skin of all of us is responsive to gypsy songs and military marches. #Quote by Jean Cocteau
Gypsy quotes by Tennessee Williams
#133. I knew before asking the gypsy that something of this sort would happen to you. You have a spark of anarchy in your spirit and that's not to be tolerated. Nothing wild or honest is tolerated here! It has to be extinguished or used only to light up your nose for Mr. Gutman's amusement. #Quote by Tennessee Williams
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#134. I think it's important as a women to know who you are and what you deserve. We, ourselves set the boundaries of what we choose to accept.
Instead of complaining about the men who's actions don't fit your own & move on and find one that does. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Gypsy quotes by Karen Abbott
#135. Gypsy [Rose Lee ] was a masterful storyteller, and her memoir and by extension, the musical weren't only Gypsy's monument; they were also her chance for monumental revisionism. #Quote by Karen Abbott
Gypsy quotes by Gypsy Rose Lee
#136. God will protect us, but to make sure, carry a heavy club. #Quote by Gypsy Rose Lee
Gypsy quotes by Peace Gypsy
#137. Life is amazingly beautiful. Clouds and wind blowing through the trees makes such a sound of music that one can contour to their own heart. #Quote by Peace Gypsy
Gypsy quotes by Kristen Ashley
#138. You so totally like me," I declared.
... "Yeah, gypsy, I like you. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Gypsy quotes by Jodi Picoult
#139. That's because you've never been one. You haven't spent years wearing someone else's clothes, taking someone else's name, living in someone else's houses, and working someone else's job to fit in. And if you don't sell out, then you run away ... proving you're the Gypsy they said you were all along. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Gypsy quotes by Jane Glazer
#140. Final Disposition

Others divided closets full of mother's things.
From the earth, I took her poppies.
I wanted those fandango folds
of red and black chiffon she doted on,
loving the wild and Moorish music of them,
coating her tongue with the thin skin
of their crimson petals.

Snapping her fingers, flamenco dancer,
she'd mock the clack of castanets
in answer to their gypsy cadence.
She would crouch toward the flounce of flowers,
twirl, stamp her foot, then kick it out
as if to lift the ruffles, scarlet
along the hemline of her yard.

And so, I dug up, soil and all,
the thistle-toothed and gray-green clumps
of leaves, the testicle seedpods and hairy stems
both out of season, to transplant them in my less-exotic garden. There, they bloom
her blood's abandon, year after year,
roots holding, their poppy heads nodding
a carefree, opium-ecstatic, possibly forever sleep. #Quote by Jane Glazer
Gypsy quotes by Kate Magowan
#141. Gypsy dance is never just to be dancing. Instead it seems to be a part of an immense and significant non-verbal vocabulary of Gypsy communication and behavior. It is at the heart of an essential transformation, a transcended state, an escape from the realities of their daily lives to a more satisfying state of mind. #Quote by Kate Magowan
Gypsy quotes by Roman Payne
#142. When I was younger, I would cling to life because life was at the top of the turning wheel. But like the song of my gypsy-girl, the great wheel turns over and lands on a minor key. It is then that you come of age and life means nothing to you. To live, to die, to overdose, to fall in a coma in the street ... it is all the same. It is only in the peach innocence of youth that life is at its crest on top of the wheel. And there being only life, the young cling to it, they fear death ... And they should! ... For they are in life. #Quote by Roman Payne
Gypsy quotes by Mishi McCoy
#143. They tried to define her. Some called her perpetually enigmatic. Some said she was fucking crazy. I didn't matter to her what they called her. She knew she was Free. #Quote by Mishi McCoy
Gypsy quotes by Harvey Manning
#144. If this isn't a guidebook, what is it? A book of sermons, perhaps.
I preach that air travel be scaled back, as a start, to the level of twenty years ago, further reductions to be considered after all the Boeing engineers have been retrained as turkey ranchers.
The state Game Department should establish a season on helicopters - fifty-two weeks a year, twenty-four hours a day, no bag limit.
Passenger trains must be restored, as a start, to the service of forty years ago and then improved from there.
The Gypsy Bus System must not be regularized (the government would regulate it to death) but publicized cautiously through the underground.
I would discourage, if not ban, trekking to Everest base camp and flying over the Greenland Icecap. Generally, people should stay home. Forget gaining a little knowledge about a lot and strive to learn about a little. #Quote by Harvey Manning
Gypsy quotes by Robert Henri
#145. All my life I have refused to be for or against parties, for or against nations, for or against people. I never seek novelty or the eccentric; I do not go from land to land to contrast civilizations. I seek only, wherever I go, for symbols of greatness, and as I have already said, they may be found in the eyes of a child, in the movement of a gladiator, in the heart of a gypsy, in twilight in Ireland or in moonrise over the deserts. To hold the spirit of greatness is in my mind what the world was created for. The human body is beautiful as this spirit shines through, and art is great as it translates and embodies this spirit. #Quote by Robert Henri
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#146. You can love her with everything you have and she still wont belong to you. She will run wild with you, beside you with everystep but let me tell you something about women who run with wolves, their fierce hearts dont settle between walls and their instinct is stronger than upbringing. Love her wild or leave her there. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Gypsy quotes by John Edgar Wideman
#147. They killed everyone in the camps. The whole world was dying there. Not only Jews. Even a black woman. Not gypsy. Not African. American like you, Mrs. Clara.

They said she was a dancer and could play any instrument. Said she could line up shoes from many countries and hop from one pair to the next, performing the dances of the world. They said the Queen of Denmark honored her with a gold trumpet. But she was there, in hell with the rest of us.

A woman like you. Many years ago. A lifetime ago. Young then as you would have been. And beautiful. As I believe you must have been, Mrs. Clara. Yes. Before America entered the war. Already camps had begun devouring people. All kinds of people. Yet she was rare. Only woman like her I saw until I came here, to this country, this city. And she saved my life.

Poor thing.

I was just a boy. Thirteen years old. The guards were beating me. I did not know why. Why? They didn't need a why. They just beat. And sometimes the beating ended in death because there was no reason to stop, just as there was no reason to begin. A boy. But I'd seen it many times. In the camp long enough to forget why I was alive, why anyone would want to live for long. They were hurting me, beating the life out of me but I was not surprised, expected no explanation. I remember curling up as I had seen a dog once cowering from the blows of a rolled newspaper. In the old country lifetimes ago. A boy in my village staring at a dog #Quote by John Edgar Wideman
Gypsy quotes by Saul Williams
#148. I keep trying to forget, but I must remember. And gather the scattered continents of a self, once whole. Before they plant flags and boundary my destiny. Push down the watered mountains that blemish this soiled soul before the valleys of my conscience get the best of me. I'll need a passport just to simply reach the rest of me. A vaccination for a lesser god's bleak history. #Quote by Saul Williams
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#149. The world is a big place for a little heart like mine, I have kept it locked away until I meet warrior that tames my wild. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Gypsy quotes by Emory Sharplin
#150. Tucker met his eyes and set her hand in his. "I've never met a gypsy before."

"I'm honoured to be your first." He kissed her knuckles coyly. #Quote by Emory Sharplin
Gypsy quotes by Deyth Banger
#151. Gypsy aren't only poor, but they are brutal and not so nice people. World has smashed them, that they start making revenge by behaving bad to dogs, like "Hey, I'm the boss". But nobody stand up and do something about that! #Quote by Deyth Banger
Gypsy quotes by Rory Gallagher
#152. It has affected me very much in the last 10 years. I get it from my grandmother. She was very superstitious as well. I'm funny about numbers. It's become a phobia, so I have to watch it. It affects your day a lot. Before I go on stage, there are certain things I do that are semi-sort of Gypsy superstitious things, but I'm coping with them. It hasn't affected the music, thank God. If you got really bad, you'd say I'll pick that note instead of that one or sing this song before that. #Quote by Rory Gallagher
Gypsy quotes by Karl Wiggins
#153. It's all nonsense of course. You can find God in a thunderstorm, or in the smile of a child, or in the wilderness (I believe that Jesus himself tried that at one stage), or in a rain forest, or a puppy, or in a legend, or by just lying under the stars, or in a daydream, or in your lover's eyes, or in music, or by believing in magic, or in a conversation with a bag lady, or by loving a Gypsy girl, or by stumbling upon a white buffalo, or by dancing around your bones on the edge of extinction. #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Gypsy quotes by Shirley A. Martin
#154. She didn't pick her way over the terrain like she was afraid of slipping on the ice...She glided over it with long confident strides. Her hands were in her vest pockets. Her eyes were Susannah. #Quote by Shirley A. Martin
Gypsy quotes by Jack London
#155. And all the while the four men lay beside me and watched and made no move. Nor did I move, and without shame I say it; though my reason was compelled to struggle hard against my natural impulse to rise up and interfere. I knew life. Of what use to the woman, or to me, would be my being beaten to death by five men there on the bank of the Susquehanna? I once saw a man hanged, and though my whole soul cried protest, my mouth cried not. Had it cried, I should most likely have had my skull crushed by the butt of a revolver, for it was the law that the man should hang. And here, in this gypsy group, it was the law that the woman should be whipped.

Even so, the reason in both cases that I did not interfere was not that it was the law, but that the law was stronger than I. Had it not been for those four men beside me in the grass, right gladly would I have waded into the man with the whip. And, barring the accident of the landing on me with a knife or a club in the hands of some of the various women of the camp, I am confident that I should have beaten him into a mess. But the four men were beside me in the grass. They made their law stronger than I. #Quote by Jack London
Gypsy quotes by Sofia Milos
#156. I'm very much into the Gypsy Kings. It's rumba and very festive, very passionate music, rhythmic guitar, passionate singing about love from happy people. #Quote by Sofia Milos
Gypsy quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#157. She had been an untamed mestiza of the so-called shopkeeper aristocracy: seductive, rapacious, brazen, with a hunger in her womb that could have satisfied an entire barracks. In a few short years, however, she had been erased from the world by her abuse of fermented honey and cacao tablets. Her Gypsy eyes were extinguished and her wits dulled, she shat blood and vomited bile, her sirens body became as bloated and coppery as a three-day-old corpse, and she broke wind in pestilential explosions that startled the mastiffs. She almost never left her bedroom, and when she did she was nude or wearing a silk tunic with nothing underneath, which made her seem more naked than if she wore nothing at all. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Gypsy quotes by John Knowles
#158. I turned with an inward groan to look at him. Quackenbush wasn't going to let me just do the work for him like the automaton I wished to be. We were going to have to be pitted against each other. It was easy enough now to see why. For Quackenbush had been systematically disliked since he first set foot in Devon, with careless, disinterested insults coming at him from the beginning, voting for and applauding the class leaders through years of attaining nothing he wanted for himself. I didn't want to add to his humiliations; I even sympathized with his trembling, goaded egotism he could no longer contain, the furious arrogance which sprang out now at the mere hint of opposition from someone he had at last found whom he could consider inferior to himself. I realized that all this explained him, and it wasn't the words he said which angered me. It was only that he was so ignorant, that he knew nothing of the gypsy summer, nothing of the loss I was fighting to endure, of skylarks and splashes and petal-bearing breezes, he had not seen Leper's snails or the Charter of the Super Suicide Society; he shared nothing, knew nothing, felt nothing as Phineas had done. #Quote by John Knowles
Gypsy quotes by Rex Smith
#159. When I got out of high school I hit the road. I lived like a gypsy. Those were the best times of my life. I was living from club to club not knowing where my next meal was coming from. No credit cards, no apartment, no bills, no managers, just on the road with a truck and five guys. #Quote by Rex Smith
Gypsy quotes by Sofia Boutella
#160. I make body chains that come from the neck, cross in the middle of your chest, then go around your waist. I mix them with feathers for a gypsy, bohemian style. #Quote by Sofia Boutella
Gypsy quotes by Elizabeth Goudge
#161. There began to come to her a first dim realization of God's humility. Rejected by the proud in His own right by what humble means He chose to succor them; through the spirit of a child, a poor gypsy or an old man, by a song perhaps, or even it might be by the fall of a leaf or the scent of a flower. For His infinite and humble patience nothing was too small to advance His purpose of salvation and eternity was not too long for its accomplishment. #Quote by Elizabeth Goudge
Gypsy quotes by Jacques Yonnet
#162. Every day the words that Keep-on-Dancin' and the Gypsy imparted to me - theories, observations, advice and warnings - are substantiated and acquire deeper meaning.

'It's not for nothing there are so many bistrots in Paris,' Keep-on-Dancin' asserted. 'The reason so many people are always crowded into them isn't so much they go there to drink but to meet up, congregate, come together, comfort each other. Yes, comfort each other: people are bored the whole time, and they're scared, scared of loneliness and boredom. And they all carry around in their heart of hearts their own pet little arch-fear: fear of death, no matter how devil-may-care they might appear to be. They'd do anything to avoid thinking about it. Don't forget, it's with that fear all temples and churches were built. So in cities like this, where forty different races mingle together, everyone can always find something to say to each other. #Quote by Jacques Yonnet
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#163. The world stopped fighting for me long ago,
I had to rely on self and pave a path on my own.
Some of us women are fierce beyond our means,
We are raised by warriors to be nothing but queens. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Gypsy quotes by Galina Nikolowa
#164. simply such
a day like the others, it isn't
on a day like this
the gypsy women are looking at you
and are knowing - if they call you
you will stop
to hear your misfortune
spoken by a stranger
they have a degree
in street's psychology
for them you are transparent
even if you don't have a light for their cigarette
she knows
you aren't lucky in love
buy me a coffee
and I'll tell you more

still more than this what then #Quote by Galina Nikolowa
Gypsy quotes by Andre Benjamin
#165. I met a gypsy and she hipped me to some life game,
To stimulate, then activate the left and right brain.
Said, 'Baby boy, you only funky as your last cut.
You focus on the past, your ass'll be a has-what.'
That's one to live by, or either that's one to die to. #Quote by Andre Benjamin
Gypsy quotes by Cher

Gypsy quotes by Barbara Casey
#167. Jennifer now understood the meaning of the cadence: the black and white drawing, the watercolor painting,and the notes. The cadence had at last developed into a concerto for violin, the instrument of gypsies, with a prevailing rhapsodic "leitmotif". The final movement had revealed itself when they were at the gypsy camp. And now it was complete. #Quote by Barbara Casey
Gypsy quotes by Eva Herzigova
#168. As a model, it's a gypsy kind of life: living in hotels, working all the time, ordering room service instead of cooking for yourself. There's absolutely no nest-building. #Quote by Eva Herzigova
Gypsy quotes by Miley Cyrus

Gypsy quotes by Ernest Hemingway
#173. I do not like anis," Pablo said.
The acrid smell had carried across the table and he had picked out the one familiar component.
"Good," said Robert Jordan. "Because there is very little left."
"What drink is that?" the gypsy asked.
"A medicine," Robert Jordan said. "Do you want to taste it?"
"What is it for?"
"For everything," Robert Jordan said. "It cures everything. If you have anything wrong this will cure it. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway
Gypsy quotes by Alex Pettyfer
#174. I'm the gypsy man. I don't really live anywhere. I've got a roof over my head in Los Angeles, and I've got a lot of friends everywhere. #Quote by Alex Pettyfer
Gypsy quotes by Subcomandante Marcos
#175. Yes, Marcos is gay. Marcos is gay in San Francisco, black in South Africa, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10pm, a peasant without land, a gang member in the slums, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student and, of course, a Zapatista in the mountains.
Marcos is all the exploited, marginalised, oppressed minorities resisting and saying `Enough'. He is every minority who is now beginning to speak and every majority that must shut up and listen. He is every untolerated group searching for a way to speak. Everything that makes power and the good consciences of those in power uncomfortable -- this is Marcos. #Quote by Subcomandante Marcos
Gypsy quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#176. Evie touched the surface of Cam's coat sleeve. "Is my father awake now?" she asked anxiously. "May I go up to see him?"
"Of course." The Gypsy took both her hands in a light grip, the gold rings warmed by the liberal heat of his fingers. "I will see to it that no one interferes."
"Thank you." Suddenly Sebastian reached between them and plucked one of Evie's hands away, pulling it decisively to his own arm. Though his manner was casual, the firm pressure of his fingers ensured that she would not try to pull away.
Puzzled by the display of possessiveness, Evie frowned. "I have known Cam since childhood," she said pointedly. "He has always been quite kind to me."
"A husband always likes to hear of kindnesses done for his wife," Sebastian replied coolly. "Within limits, of course."
"Of course," Cam said softly. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas

Gypsy quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#179. I will go to campus alone dressed in antique silk slips and beat-up cowboy boots and gypsy beads, and I will study poetry. I will sit on the edge of the fountain in the plaza and write. #Quote by Francesca Lia Block
Gypsy quotes by Mary Abshire
#180. I knew I was a little different from most demons but nothing says freak of nature like a one-eyed gypsy saying I had a rainbow glow. It just didn't sound complimentary. #Quote by Mary Abshire
Gypsy quotes by Marc Curtis
#181. Born at Letterman Army Hospital. I never actually lived in San Francisco. It's not my home town, but then, I don't have one. I'm a nomad ... a gypsy ... an Army Brat. Put me on an airplane, send me anywhere. That's where I belong ... anywhere. #Quote by Marc Curtis
Gypsy quotes by Van Morrison
#182. And I want to rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
And magnificently we will fold into the mystic #Quote by Van Morrison
Gypsy quotes by Virginia Alison
#183. I am wild, untameable, the storm and the eye within
An unpredictable gypsy, with passion beyond your wildest dreams
and unquenchable desires
for you and you alone...
Persistent and fiercely loyal,
today I choose to be all of these
and more…
Will you still be here tomorrow? #Quote by Virginia Alison
Gypsy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#184. Some are born to play it safe

Gypsy quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#185. Stop running from me and listen. I do want you. I want you even knowing if I marry you, I've got an instant family, complete with a suicidal brother-in-law and a Gypsy houseboy with the temperament of a poked bear."
"Merripen is not a houseboy."
"Call him what you like. He comes with the Hathaways. I accept that. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Gypsy quotes by Jerry Smith
#186. A gypsy fire is on the hearth, Sign of the carnival of mirth; Through the dun fields and from the glade Flash merry folk in masquerade, For this is Hallowe'en! #Quote by Jerry Smith
Gypsy quotes by Wiss Auguste
#187. Fear was etched on her face like a gypsy curse carved on precious stones. #Quote by Wiss Auguste
Gypsy quotes by Lucy M. Boston
#188. When she opened her eyes they were confronted by a musical box against the opposite wall - one of those early Bavarian toys where mechanical figures perform to the tune.

'How odd,' she thought. The little stage showed a group of fiddlers, two couples in costumes like those of the ball she had just quitted, and in a doorway at the side, a gypsy or beggar man.

Very faintly the distant waltz came to her ears, but no footsteps ringing in the abandoned halls.

With her hand pressed to her unsteady heart, acting under a sudden compulsion, she pushed down the lever. Delicate plucked music started up; the fiddlers sawed with their clumsy arms in time to an ethereal waltz. The couples moved jerkily out and each raised an arm to clasp its partner. To various clicks and rumbles from under the floor they began to revolve with each other and to orbit round the room. Their movements were sinister because of being both reluctant and predestined. Here they were and this is was what they must do. ("Many Coloured Glass") #Quote by Lucy M. Boston
Gypsy quotes by Joel Hodgson
#189. Gypsy was the name my brother gave a pet turtle he had. I always thought it was so peculiar. #Quote by Joel Hodgson
Gypsy quotes by Karl Wiggins
#190. For the Gypsy, it's moments in time that count, not interpretations or rhetorical questions or resolutions or justifications, and not even the journey's end, for the journey never ends. Just moments in time. They are born for disappearing #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Gypsy quotes by Melody  Lee
#191. Hair tangled with the wind
Sun kissed face
Lover of the forest
the sea
the sky
and anything wild and free
She's a gypsy goddess. #Quote by Melody Lee
Gypsy quotes by Angel Rosa
#192. Merrill Hartweiss scales a rocky incline toward Renna. The noon sun bakes the hillside as Merrill's boots dig into the broiling sands. Yet another gypsy tune enters his head. It starts off slowly. A lone guitar, its strings strummed with the lustful passion of a young man brushing his fingertips softly against the breasts of his lover. Another guitar joins, like a second hand, exploring her hot flesh, stroking the side of her bare abdomen, and gradually moving upward toward her chest. Then, a female voice joins the guitars; it is slightly raspy, yet sultry; filled with a fiery allure. The guitars pick up in intensity and tempo. There is a rhythmic clapping now, in synchronization with the strumming. The man has entered his lover.

Sweat begins to form on Merrill's forehead, then quickly turns to vapor, dissipating into the blistering heat from the sunlight reflecting off the sands. Steady clapping, louder still. The tempo quickens, progressively and with a vigorous intensity. The man arches his back, cresting then falling; cresting, arching, rising and falling deeper again and again into his lover. The clapping, now faster, still rhythmic, but so much more intense. The guitars keep pace with increasing ferocity. In the woman's voice, short, quick breaths form words as she cries out her lover's name from deep within the throes of a forbidden love #Quote by Angel Rosa
Gypsy quotes by Anais Nin
#193. She had acquired some of his gypsy ways, some of his nonchalance, his bohemian indiscipline. She had swung with him into the disorders of strewn clothes, spilled cigarette ashes, slipping into bed all dressed, falling asleep thus, indolence, timelessness ... A region of chaos and moonlight. She liked it there. #Quote by Anais Nin
Gypsy quotes by Greg Lake
#194. I understand travel. I understand the experience of travel. I mean there is something of the "air-conditioned gypsy" in me. #Quote by Greg Lake
Gypsy quotes by Mara Amberly
#195. The boughs of trees stretched high overhead, leaves of dappled green and black mottling the sky. It was called the black forest for more reasons than the inky-black foliage. The wise and cautious seldom travelled by night along its poorly-tended roads, and banditry wasn't the main reason. In the minds of many, shadows of a threat lurked in wait, seeking an opportunity to strike during a moment of weakness. It was known among the old folk that not all who dwelled within the black forest were of human or animal-kind. Some beings were much older and believed far more dangerous. #Quote by Mara Amberly
Gypsy quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#196. The Story Girl was written in 1910 and published in 1911. It was the last book I wrote in my old home by the gable window where I had spent so many happy hours of creation. It is my own favourite among my books, the one that gave me the greatest pleasure to write, the one whose characters and landscape seem to me most real. All the children in the book are purely imaginary. The old "King Orchard" was a compound of our old orchard in Cavendish and the orchard at Park Corner. "Peg Bowen" was suggested by a half-witted, gypsy-like personage who roamed at large for many years over the Island and was the terror of my childhood. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Gypsy quotes by Robert James Waller
#197. Other than that , he knew scarcely anyone well, nor they him. Gypsies make difficult friends for ordinary people, and he was something of a gypsy.

Like two solitary birds flying the great prairies by celestial reckoning, all of these years and lifetimes we have been moving toward one another.

Analysis destroys wholes. Some things, magic things, are meant to stay whole. If you look at their pieces, they go away.

And he whispered to her, I have one thing to say, one thing only, I´ll never say it another time, to anyone, and I ask you to remember it: In a universe of ambiguity, this kind of certainty comes only once, and never again, no matter how many lifetimes you live.

Since he had driven away from her .., she realized, in spite of how much she thought she´d care for him then, she had nonetheless badly underestimated her feelings. That didn´t seem possible, but it was true. She had begun to understand what he already understood. #Quote by Robert James Waller
Gypsy quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#198. A writer is like a gypsy. He owes no allegiance to any government. If he is a good writer he will never like any government he lives under. His hand should be against it and its hand will always be against him. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Gypsy quotes by Shel Silverstein
#199. Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fair, and moonlit woods where unicorns run free. #Quote by Shel Silverstein
Gypsy quotes by Melody  Lee
#200. She walks barefoot in the woods.
Always returns smelling like a wildflower
and howling like a wolf.
My Gypsy Jane. #Quote by Melody Lee
