Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Melissa Jensen
#4. Frankie had used one (reverently) to wipe his eyes.This specimen was old and soft,monogrammed with a J in the corner. "Makes it interesting," he told me once, after finding a box monogrammed with M for fifty cents at a sidewalk sale. "Was it Max or Michael? Maybe Marco..."
"Here," he said now. "You have lipstick halfway down to your chin."
Humiliated, I scrubbed at my face.
Frankie held out his hand, palm up. "Okay,let's have it." I pulled the tube out of my pocket. "Not really my thing, madam, but since I've seen what happens when you don't use a mirror..." I'm sure it helped that he was holding my face, but he read it like a pro. "You had a mirror."
"I did.I'm hopeless."
"Maybe.Open." He squinted as he filled in my upper lip. "I don't like this."
"The color? I knew it was too pink-"
"Quiet.You'll smear it.The color is fine. Better for Sienna, I'm sure..." He surveyed his handiwork. "I don't like that you're doing this for him."
"Don't start. I told you how nice he was."
"In excruciating detail."
Given, the post-Bainbridge family dinner e-mail to Frankie and Sadie had been long. But excrutiating stung, especially from the boy who'd used every possible synonym for hot in describing his Friday-night bookstore acquisition. No name, just detailed hotness and the play-by-play of their flirtation over the fantasy section. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Bainbridge Colby
#5. America stands for individual liberty, but that means an ordered liberty. #Quote by Bainbridge Colby
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Pastor Steve Bainbridge
#6. The most tragic thing anyone could ever say to us is "Oh – you're a Christian? I had no idea!" It is not who we say we are, but how we are recognized. Let's remember, "In Antioch the disciples were first called Christians " and By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." Dear brothers and sisters, let our walk match our talk and be doers of the word... #Quote by Pastor Steve Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by James McGreevey
#7. I'm grateful for my brokenness. I'm grateful for my humility. #Quote by James McGreevey
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Melissa Jensen
#8. Nous avons ete amies," I added. "There,that's two in French, and using past perfect, no less."
I couldn't see his expression clearly. It flet like a long time before he said anything. "Ella..." He paused, then, "What happened? Between you and Anna?"
"Other than the fact that I'm a fashion-impaired poor kid who draws doorknobs? Haven't a clue."
Alex leaned forward. Now I could see his face. He looked annoyed. "Why do you do that? Diminish yourself?"
"I don't-"
"Bullshit."
I could feel my cheeks flaming, feel my shoulders curving inward. "I don't-"
"Right.Don't.Just don't, with me, anyway. I like you better feisty."
I couldn't help it; that made me smile. "Did you really just say 'feisty'?"
"I did.It's a good word."
"It's am old word, favored by granddads and pirates."
"Yar," Alex sighed.
"Face it.You're just an old-fashioned guy."
"Whatever.Three...?"
"Three," I said, and changed my mind midthought. "I haven't been able to decide if Willing is the second best thing that ever happened to me, or the second worst."
"What are the firsts?"
"Nope.Uh-uh.It is not for you to ask, Alexander Bainbridge, but to reveal."
He drained his glass and rolled it back and forth between his hands. "I had all these funny admissions planned, but you've screwed up my plans. Hey. Don't go all wounded-wide-eyed on me. It's cute, that Bambi thing you have going, but beside the point.Now I have to rethink."
"You don #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#9. Being constantly with children was like wearing a pair of shoes that were expensive and too small. She couldn't bear to throw them out, but they gave her blisters. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge

Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Melissa Jensen
#13. Leo!
Scusi, Nonna." But he still managed to get a good, quiet curse or two out as he backed his way gingerly through the swinging door.
"Here.I got it." Tina took the beer and glass from me. "Ya know them?"
I nodded.
"She looks like butter wouldn't melt.But her kid..." She pursed brilliantly pink lips. "All that and a bag of baked tofu chips?"
I had to smile a little at the image. "No.He's not...He doesn't act like..." I wasn't entirely sure why I was defending him.He hadn't exactly been the Prince Charming of Dinner Orders. Come to think of it, I couldn't completely vouch for Alex Bainbridge being Prince Charming of Anything. Except my own little Villink fantasy. "Maybe."
"Cute,though."
"Yeah."
"Yeah?" I have no idea what is was Tina saw in my face. Something. "Aw, sweetie." She sighed. "Want me to shake up Daddy's beer a little?"
"No," I answered. "but thanks for the offer. #Quote by Melissa Jensen

Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Melissa Jensen
#15. Oh,Ella. I wish you'd had a better time at the ball."
"Fuhgeddaboudit," I muttered. Greaseball. Freddy. Freak. "It's not like she and I were ever going to be BFFs."
"I wasn't just referring to Amanda."
Of course he wasn't.
"I'll try," I moaned into the crook of my elbow. "Oh, Lord.I'll try to carry on."
"That sounds rather dramatic, even for you."
"It's Styx," I told him. "After your time, before mine. I don't know all the words,but those work for the moment. And for the record, I'm being ironic, not dramatic."
"If you say so."
I ignored him. "I have had my last flutter over Alex Bainbridge. I mean it. Frankie was right.How many signs do I need that we are never, ever going to have...anything...before I get it? Obviously, it doesn't matter that we realte to the same schizo seventies songs. Or that we can discuss antique Japanese woodblock prints. Or that when he sits next to me, he kinda takes my breath away. You would think that would count for a lot,wouldn't you?"
Edward gets the concept of rhetorical questions, so I went on. "I wouldn't even want to hazard a guess about what makes Amanda's pulse go all skittery, but I would bet anything it's not Alex. And he's still with her. He doesn't belong with her, but apparently he feels he belongs to her. Explain that,please."
"Oh,Ella.We men are not always the best at looking beyond the...er..."
"Boobs,Edward. You can say it. Amanda Alstead has boobs and blonda hair. Beyond th #Quote by Melissa Jensen

Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Anne  Michaud
#18. The couples learn to distrust what's said about them in the media and to turn inward toward each other in times of crisis. Dina Matos McGreevey, former wife of New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey wrote, "Yes, I'd once or twice heard the rumor that Jim was gay, but I dismissed it just as I dismissed many other stories, most of which I knew not to be true. #Quote by Anne Michaud
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Melissa Jensen
#19. Maybe if he hadn't paused to take an audible breath, we wouldn't have heard it. But as it was, the creak from the floor outside my half-open door came in loud and clear. Alex shot up like he'd been poked with a sharp stick. I crossed the room in a single breath and jerked open the door.
Nonna, halwayf past my room and clearly heading for the stairs, looked like something out of a cartoon. Her shoulders were hunched, she had one foot lifted off the floor, and she was cringing. "Oh,Fiorella. I am sorry!"
In an alernate universe, another Ella was frantically reassuring her shrieking grandmother that nothing had happened, she had not endangered her immortal soul, and it would be a very good thing, please, if Poppa's revolver went back into its dusty case.
In this one,Nonna had a gun forefinger to her own temple. She popped her thumb and rolled her eyes.
Not knowing what else to do, I stepped aside. "Um...Nonna, this is Alex Bainbridge. Alex, this is my grandmother..."
He was already across the room, hand extended. "Buongiorno, Signora Marino. Piacere di conosceria."
She responded with a delighted cackle and a torrent of Italian. I caught "welcome" and "sausage." Of course, I might have been wrong about both. Alex listened attentively, then gave her a crooked smile. "Scusi, signora. I don't speak Italian. Well, much,anyway. I just practiced a couple phrases for...um...practice."
"Ah"-Nonna reached up to pinch Alex's cheek, not to hard-"it doesn' #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by James McGreevey
#20. When I came out publicly, some photo editors had a field day searching for pictures of me with a limp wrist or some other stereotypical gay signifier - as though, after decades in the public eye, they'd suddenly come across a trove of shots where I looked like a Cher impersonator. #Quote by James McGreevey
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#21. It seems to me that a mutually beneficial relationship between a man and woman requires the man to be dominant. A sensible woman will allow the man to think he is the most important partner. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#22. There is nothing more guaranteed to reduce a man to the essentials than to live beneath the sky. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#23. Everything else you grow out of, but you never recover from childhood. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Bainbridge Colby
#24. But we must not, if we are loyal, disperse our energies in a partisan warfare that is waged without regard to its consequences to the well being, security, or honor of the country. #Quote by Bainbridge Colby
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#25. When passion is mutual, there is always the danger of the fire burning to ashes. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Melissa Jensen
#26. It's pierogis. From Svichkar's. Probably cold. It seemed...Oh,crap. It was a really stupid thing to bring, wasn't it? My mother just has this thing about never arriving empty-handed."
I tugged the bag out of his hands. "It's perfect. Merci beaucoup, Monsieur Bainbridge."
"Je t'en prie, Mademoiselle Marino."
Okay, so it's just the semiformal way to say "You're welcome" in French, but anyone who says Italian is the language of romance is probably Italian. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#27. What we remember is probably fiction anyway. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Maria Semple
#28. All those ninnies have it wrong. The best thing about Seattle is the weather. The world over, people have ocean views. But across our ocean is Bainbridge Island, an evergreen curb, and over it the exploding, craggy, snow-scraped Olympics. I guess what I'm saying: I miss it, the mountains and the water. #Quote by Maria Semple
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Melissa Jensen
#29. I might have stood there for a long time, hand halfway up like a religious statue,if Frankie hadn't gently pulled it down and held on.
He stood behind me, vibrating with anger. "That is not an honorable man, Fiorella."
Without thinking, I lifted my free hand toward my neck.But I was wearing a turtleneck and my hair was down. There was nothing to see,and all my fingertips found was the rigid peak under my jaw.
"Don't do that," Frankie hissed. "Don't you dare. It's not the scar and it's abso-freakin-lutely not you."
I dropped my hand. "Yeah,right." I sagged against him a little. For being skinny as he is, Frankie's really solid. "It's never me."
I felt his sigh against my shoulder blades. "We are young; heartache to heartache we stand."
"Let me guess," I said. "Old Korean proverb."
"As if.Pat Benatar. 'Love is a Battlefield.'"
I laughed.I had a feeling I might cry, but not there and then. "Thanks."
"Don't mention it." Frankie wrapped his free arm around me so my chin rested on his forearm. "Enough,right? That was enough of Alex Bainbridge-for all of us. Promise?"
"Yeah.Promise? #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#30. I left him and went up on deck to look out at the slithering city, its glitter of street lamps fizzy under the rain. There's something wrong about a ship in dock, something pathetic, like a bird fluttering in a spill of oil. The Nova was tethered to her berth by ropes and chains, caught in a pool of greasy water. I could feel her shifting under my feet, tugging to be free. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by James McGreevey
#31. We need to seek wise leaders who will seek common ground among Americans instead of dividing us further for political gain. As citizens, we must embrace those who embrace ideas, thoughtfulness, civility and kindness to others no matter what their political beliefs. #Quote by James McGreevey
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by James McGreevey
#32. I've never been much for self-revelation. In two decades of public life, I always approached the limelight with extreme caution. Not that I kept my personal life off-limits; rather, the personal life I put on display was a blend of fact and fiction. #Quote by James McGreevey
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by James McGreevey
#33. I think - I think you have a conscience growing up in a loving family with a nurturing community. And I think what happens is, and that's part of the problem of being in the closet which is a very sick place. I mean it's self loathing. It's self denial. And you keep that separate. #Quote by James McGreevey
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Jon Ronson
#34. Only a handful of therapeutic communities inspired by his Massachusetts ones exist in American prisons today. But, as it happens, one of them is situated on the top floor of the Hudson County Correctional Center in Kearny, New Jersey. And it is being quietly run by the former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey. #Quote by Jon Ronson
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Bainbridge Colby
#35. I am deeply concerned with the diminution of the teaching strength of the country as a result of the disproportionately low salaries that are paid to teachers throughout the country. #Quote by Bainbridge Colby
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#36. When I got a telly we had no aerial, but I discovered that if I or one of the children stood by it you could get a picture. So I had to make a statue that could stand by the telly. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#37. As a child she had been taught it was rude to say no, unless she didn't mean it. If she was offered another piece of cake and she wanted it she was obliged to refuse out of politeness. And if she didn't want it she had to say yes, even if it choked her. It was involved but understandable. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Melissa Jensen
#38. He came to find me," I offered, a small indication, maybe,that this was a Phillite boy who'd grown into doing the right thing.
"I'll give him that. He could have just sucked down his spaghetti and gone." Frankie stuck the cap back on the lipstick. "You look very pretty in..." He flipped the tube over and read. "You've gotta be kidding. Poysonberry? Who comes up with this stuff? Anyway.I'm sure Alex Bainbridge will agree."
"Thank you."
"Anytime.Just keep this in mind, if you would, please. I know that you look very pretty every day, with or without the ridiculously named wax products."
"Saint Francis," I teased, feeling just delightfully poysonous enough in the glow of his approval. "Too good for this world."
"That's just what Connor said." Frankie's most recent boy. They met in a bookstore.
"Bookstore Connor of the fantasy realm?"
Behind us,the gong went. Frankie started to scoop his stuff together. "Careful.His fantasies do not involve one-dimensional Phillites or dead men."
I tapped him on the tip of his perfect nose. He hates that. "How do you know? He might have a thing for dead, one-dimensional Phillites. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Mcgreevey Bainbridge quotes by Beryl Bainbridge
#39. I was scared for my life, but at the same time I couldn't help noticing how bright everything was, the ice not really blue at all but shot through with spangled points of rosy light so dazzling that it made me crinkle up my eyes as though I had something to smile about, and there was a shadow cast by the Owner's shoulder that washed from seagreen to purple as he twisted in his traces. #Quote by Beryl Bainbridge
