Moth Smoke quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#1. The poets say some moths will do anything out of love for a flame
[ ... ]
The moth takes off again, and we both step back, because he's circling at eye level now and seems to have lost rudder control, smacking into the wall on each round. He circles lower and lower, spinning around the candle in tighter revolutions, like a soap sud over an open drain. A few times he seems to touch the flame, but dances off unhurt.
Then he ignites like a ball of hair, curling into an oily puff of fumes with a hiss. The candle flame flickers and dims for a moment, then burns as bright as before.

Moth Smoke quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#2. They are pursued by a pair of hawk-faced men dressed in black and white: both forbidding, both hungry, but one tall and slender, the other short and fat. Two reflections of the same soul in the cosmic house of mirrors, or uncanny coincidence? It is impossible to say. #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
Moth Smoke quotes by Don DeLillo
#3. My life is either/or. Either I chew regular gum or I chew sugarless gum. Either I chew gum or I smoke. Either I smoke or I gain weight. Either I gain weight or I run up the stadium steps.'
'Sounds like a boring life.'
'I hope it lasts forever. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Moth Smoke quotes by Lewis Carroll
#4. Off, for days and days.' 'But what am I to do?' said Alice. 'Anything you like,' said the Footman, and began whistling. 'Oh, there's no use in talking to him,' said Alice desperately: 'he's perfectly idiotic!' And she opened the door and went in. The door led right into a large kitchen, which was full of smoke from one end to the other: the Duchess was sitting on a three-legged stool in the middle, nursing a baby; the cook was leaning over the fire, stirring a large cauldron which seemed to be full of soup. 'There's certainly too much pepper in that soup!' Alice said to herself, as well as she #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Moth Smoke quotes by Bob Drury
#5. Camped somewhere deep in an impenetrable crag of the immense Powder River Country during the late autumn of 1856, more than likely in the shadow of the sacred Black Hills, one imagines the thirty-five-year-old Red Cloud stepping from his tepee to listen to the bugle of a bull elk in its seasonal rut. Around him women haul water from a crystalline stream as cottonwood smoke rises from scores of cook fires and coils toward a sky the color of brushed aluminum. The wind sighs, and a smile creases his face as he observes a pack of mounted teenagers collect wagers in preparation for the Moccasin Game, or perhaps a rough round of Shinny. His gaze follows the grace and dexterity of one boy in particular, a slender sixteen-year-old with lupine eyes. The boy is Crazy Horse, and the war leader of the Bad Faces makes a mental not to keep tabs on this one. #Quote by Bob Drury
Moth Smoke quotes by Janet Jackson
#6. Too many lives go up in smoke - It's nice to laugh but don't be the joke. #Quote by Janet Jackson
Moth Smoke quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#7. Because for Terrasen, for Erilea, Elena would walk into the eternal darkness lurking across the valley to buy them all a chance. Elena sent up a final prayer on a pillar of smoke rising from the valley floor that the unborn, faraway scions of this night, heirs to a burden that would doom or save Erilea, would forgive her for what she was about to do. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Moth Smoke quotes by Mark Twain
#8. As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep and never to refrain when awake. #Quote by Mark Twain
Moth Smoke quotes by Brice Marden
#9. I smoke pot when I work. I take a couple of tokes before I start. It just loosens you up. #Quote by Brice Marden
Moth Smoke quotes by Raul Julia
#10. Maybe it's like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace. #Quote by Raul Julia
Moth Smoke quotes by Andrew X. Pham
#11. Some call you the lost brothers. Look at you. Living in America has lightened your skin, made you forget your language. You have tasted Western women and you're probably not as attracted to Vietnamese women anymore. You eat nutritious Western food and you are bigger and stronger than us. You know better than to smoke and drink like Vietnamese. You know exercise is good so you don't waste your time sitting in cafés and smoking your hard earned money away. Someday, your blood will mix so well with the Western blood that there will be no difference between you and them. You are already lost to us. #Quote by Andrew X. Pham
Moth Smoke quotes by Stephen Koch
#12. The way - the only way - to "find" your story is to tell it. Nobody in the whole world has ever before told the story you are about to tell. You yourself have never told it to anyone, not even to yourself. You may have lots of intuitions about what the story is going to be, and you may even have a sort of summary overview of it. These are good and useful things to have; they are fine places to start. They are not enough. Until you actually tell the story, the whole story, it will be nothing but smoke. Moreover, you probably will not tell the story exactly right the first time you try. You'll make wrong turns, use the wrong key, or use the right key in the wrong door. After all, you have nobody to guide you. If you are like most people, you will have to tell this story more than once - maybe even several times - before you really get it down. #Quote by Stephen Koch
Moth Smoke quotes by Cindy Anstey
#13. Robert gestured Lydia ahead of him across the threshold of number nineteen. Once inside, the atmosphere was entirely different from his previous visits. Silent calm had been replaced by chatter, laughter, and scolding that bounced into the three-story entrance from various regions of the house. There was a smell of newly lit fires, and the accompanying puffs of smoke, as well as the enticing aroma of cooking wafting up from the kitchens. It was a bustling, busy household.
Shodster stepped into the hall and rushed toward Robert, hands outstretched ready to take Robert's hat and cane.
"Thank you, no. Miss Whitfield and I are going for a walk." Robert took a half step back. "We will be leaving shortly."
Looking to Lydia for confirmation, Shodster nodded. "I do beg your pardon, Miss Whitfield. I was not here for the door. It will not happen again."
"Worry not, Shodster." Lydia shrugged. "I learned how to open a door some time ago. The trick is to turn the handle."
The butler blinked at Lydia's lightheartedness. "Yes. That would, indeed, be the trick. #Quote by Cindy Anstey
Moth Smoke quotes by Caroline Polachek
#14. I think all the songs [at Moth] are about different things, but if we were to speak about it as a whole, it's really about, it's about joy, and about sensuality and vulnerability and also fun, energy, living in New York in 2015, being out of control, wanting to be in control, failing! It's a sort of story of our lives. #Quote by Caroline Polachek
Moth Smoke quotes by Herman Wouk
#15. I feel like having a cigar, too, right this second. I'm full of queer yens. Can it be that I"m pregnant? Intellectually, maybe. Stop me if I start eating chalk. I'll be righ tback. You know, I dont' smoke half a dozen cigars a year. But this one tastes ambrosial. #Quote by Herman Wouk
Moth Smoke quotes by Allison Leotta
#16. ...the unmistakable smell of poverty, a mixture of cigarette smoke, weed, stale sweat, and fried food. #Quote by Allison Leotta
Moth Smoke quotes by Anthony Marra
#17. There were these things and the flames ate these things, and since fire doesn't distinguish between the word of God and the word of the Soviet Communications Registry Bureau, both Qur'an and telephone directory returned to His mouth in the same inhalation of smoke. #Quote by Anthony Marra
Moth Smoke quotes by Gina Gershon
#18. I did the cover of Cigar Aficionado, so I'm supposed to talk about loving cigars. I've smoked them a couple of times. My father used to smoke cigars. I love the idea and the concept, and I love the smell of cigars. #Quote by Gina Gershon
Moth Smoke quotes by Veronica Roth
#19. Peter sits with his back to the wall in the hallway. He looks up at me when I lean over him, his dark hair stuck to his forehead from the melted snow.
"Did you reset her?" he says.
"No," I say.
"Didn't think you would have the nerve."
"It's not about nerve. You know what? Whatever." I shake my head and hold up the vial of memory serum. "Are you still set on this?"
He nods.
"You could just do the work, you know," I say. "You could make better decisions, make a better life."
"Yeah, I could," he says. "But I won't. We both know that."
I do know that. I know that change is difficult, and comes slowly, and that it is the work of many days strung together in a long line until the origin of them is forgotten. He is afraid that he will not be able to put in that work, that he will squander those days, and that they will leave him worse off than he is now. And I understand that feeling--I understand being afraid of yourself.
So I have him sit on one of the couches, and I ask him what he wants me to tell him about himself, after his memories disappear like smoke. He just shakes his head. Nothing. He wants to retain nothing.
Peter takes the vial with a shaking hand and twists off the cap. The liquid trembles inside it, almost spilling over the lip. He holds it under his nose to smell it.
"How much should I drink?" he says, and I think I hear his teeth chattering.
"I don't think it makes a difference," I say.
"Okay. Well…h #Quote by Veronica Roth
Moth Smoke quotes by Adam Beach
#20. With 'Smoke Signals,' the character was so much like me growing up. I lost my parents, and I wish I'd had an opportunity to find out where they were. So I was reflecting on how I grew up, that feeling of abandonment. That whole film was a reality that I always held back and kept to myself. #Quote by Adam Beach
Moth Smoke quotes by Sherman Alexie
#21. ...there are some children who aren't really children at all, they're just pillars of flame that burn everything they touch. And there are some children who are just pillars of ash, that fall apart when you touch them..."
~ Thomas Builds-the-Fire (played by Evan Adams)
in Alexie's "Smoke Signals #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Moth Smoke quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#22. People who smoke would have probably been regarded as fools or insane, if only a percentage of people who smoke smoked. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Moth Smoke quotes by Abbas Kiarostami
#23. This kind of directing, I think, is very similar to being a football coach. You prepare your players and place them in the right places, but once the game is on, there's nothing much you can do - you can smoke a cigarette or get nervous, but you can't do much. #Quote by Abbas Kiarostami
Moth Smoke quotes by Isabel Allende
#24. But that's how nostalgia is: a slow dance in a large circle. Memories don't organize themselves chronologically, they're like smoke, changing, ephemeral, and if they're not written down they fade into oblivion. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Moth Smoke quotes by Tre Cool
#25. Smoke 'em if you got 'em. #Quote by Tre Cool
Moth Smoke quotes by Julie Burchill
#26. What sort of sap doesn't know by now that picture-perfect beauty is all done with smoke and mirrors anyway? #Quote by Julie Burchill
Moth Smoke quotes by Amy Andrews
#27. A saint? Tanner Stone was the anti-Christ. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Moth Smoke quotes by W.H. Davies
#28. Pleasure's a Moth, that sleeps by day And dances by false glare at night; But Joy's a Butterfly, that loves To spread its wings in Nature's light. #Quote by W.H. Davies
Moth Smoke quotes by Glenn Haybittle
#29. When he turns inland he sees two moving white columns in the sky. At first glance he thinks they are emissions of smoke. The two encroaching formations ripple into funnels and then spread out beneath the labyrinthine coral of clouds into fans. His vision blurs for a moment. Then he realises he is witnessing two perfectly synchronised flocks of birds. The abstract shapes they form are flawless. He stands with his hands in his pockets as the birds taper into a long undulating line, which gently vanishes behind the surface of things. The same thing has happened to his father. He has vanished behind the surface of things. #Quote by Glenn Haybittle
Moth Smoke quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#30. There were in the camp a number of Mexican slaves and these ran forth calling out in spanish and were brained or shot and one of the Delawares emerged from the smoke with a naked infant dangling in each hand and squatted at a ring of midden stones and swung them by the heels each in turn and bashed their heads against the stones so that the brains burst forth through the fontanel in a bloody spew and humans on fire came shrieking forth like berserkers and the riders hacked them down with their enormous knives and a young woman ran up and embraced the bloodied forefeet of Glanton's warhorse. #Quote by Cormac McCarthy
Moth Smoke quotes by Tanya Byrne
#31. It was like this blackness that crept into the corners of my life until everything was grey and dirty. My insides felt burnt out, like if you cut me open, all you would find would be smoke. No heart. No bones. There was nothing left, just the anger. It followed me everywhere. It sat on my bed and watched me sleep and when I had to eat, it looked at me across the table. #Quote by Tanya Byrne
Moth Smoke quotes by Steven Raichlen
#32. I really love the smoked ice cream because it's so unexpected. Yet when you taste it, it's sort of familiar and otherworldly at the same time. I guess that's what I really like about what smoke does to food. #Quote by Steven Raichlen
Moth Smoke quotes by Elie Wiesel
#33. God is dead, the God of love, of gentleness and consolation, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had, under the watchful gaze of this child, vanished forever into the smoke of the human holocaust demanded by the Race, the most voracious of all idols. And #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Moth Smoke quotes by Lily Velez
#34. Noah was a funeral pyre. He was burning. The flames rose to staggering heights and blazed in white, hot tongues. Jeremie had once told him a story of the burial rites of the Norse. They'd burn their dead, believing the high smoke carried their loved ones' souls to Valhalla.

Noah was beyond Valhalla. Beyond the creamy spaciousness above the clouds, beyond the limits of the very earth. He floated among the stars, joined them in holy communion, knew each one by name. Then they were within him, scores of them, bright and hot, turning his ribs into a furnace as they shifted and created constellations in his soul. And all the while, the summer sang in his lungs.

There was no space between him and Jeremie. Where one ended, the other began, and still Jeremie pulled him closer like the moon pulls the tide, gripping him tightly in the same way he'd gripped Noah's heart, had gripped his entire being. #Quote by Lily Velez
Moth Smoke quotes by Christopher Morley
#35. Poetry is like an unexpected noise in the night: the creak of a door, a footstep on the porch, the soft scuffle of a moth against the screen, which rouses every sense to an instant alert. So comes poetry to the drowsy mind, which startles a moment, wonders, and returns to sleep. #Quote by Christopher Morley
Moth Smoke quotes by James K. Hoffmeier
#36. Now Mount Sinai was wrapped in smoke, because the LORD had descended upon it in fire; the smoke went up like the smoke of a kiln, while the whole mountain shook violently. #Quote by James K. Hoffmeier
Moth Smoke quotes by Leslie Parry
#37. Even then, only a child, she knew she had to pretend to be someone else -- for her parents, for their customers, for everyone else in that miserable factory town, dark and ashy with smoke -- even if it made her sad. If she ran fast enough on those raw, dark mornings through the woods, she might see the trees and the morning stars, merrily alive, scurry back to their rightful places. She might hear the animals whisper and sing. And she would gain something special -- a secret knowledge, an awakening. Something else no one else could know. But until then she had to pass unnoticed, waiting to be delivered to another world where she belonged. #Quote by Leslie Parry
Moth Smoke quotes by Bob Fosse
#38. I drink too much, I smoke too much, I take pills too much, I work too much, I girl around too much, I everything too much. #Quote by Bob Fosse
Moth Smoke quotes by Charles Duhigg
#39. Take, for instance, studies from the past decade examining the impacts of exercise on daily routines.4.10 When people start habitually exercising, even as infrequently as once a week, they start changing other, unrelated patterns in their lives, often unknowingly. Typically, people who exercise start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. It's not completely clear why. But for many people, exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change. "Exercise spills over," said James Prochaska, a University of Rhode Island researcher. "There's something about it that makes other good habits easier. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Moth Smoke quotes by Sarah Addison Allen
#40. Despite the cold outside, she was wearing a cropped white shirt and tight dark blue jeans that sat low, revealing a tattoo of a broken heart on her hip. Her hair was bleached white-blond with about an inch of silver-sprinkled dark roots showing. Her mascara had run and there were black streaks on her cheeks. She looked drip-dried, like she'd been walking in the rain, though there hadn't been rain for days. She smelled like cigarette smoke and river water. #Quote by Sarah Addison Allen
Moth Smoke quotes by Kate Beckinsale
#41. I try and take lots of vitamins and I don't drink. I do smoke, though, I'd be insufferable if I didn't smoke, you'd have to push me off a balcony I'd be so boring. #Quote by Kate Beckinsale
Moth Smoke quotes by William Shakespeare
#42. Alas, that love, whose view is muffled still,
Should, without eyes, see pathways to his will!
Where shall we dine? O me! What fray was here?
Yet tell me not, for I have heard it all.
Here's much to do with hate, but more with love.
Why, then, O brawling love! O loving hate!
O any thing, of nothing first create!
O heavy lightness! Serious vanity!
Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms!
Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health!
Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!
This love feel I, that feel no love in this.
Dost thou not laugh? #Quote by William Shakespeare
Moth Smoke quotes by Janet Fitch
#43. It was her first book, an indigo cover with a silver moonflower, an art nouveau flower, I traced my finger along the silver line like smoke, whiplash curves ... I touched the pages her hands touched, I pressed them to my lips, the soft thick old paper, yellow now, fragile as skin. I stuck my nose between the bindings and smelled all the readings she had given, the smell of unfiltered cigarettes and the espresso machine, beaches and incense and whispered words in the night. I could hear her voice rising from the pages. The cover curled outward like sails. #Quote by Janet Fitch
Moth Smoke quotes by Elizabeth Berkley
#44. I was raised really, really healthy, pretty much vegetarian and a very clean lifestyle, I don't smoke, I don't drink. I'm more addicted to the things that make me feel good - endorphins after working out. #Quote by Elizabeth Berkley
Moth Smoke quotes by Amy Andrews
#45. Tiny." Juliet's firm voice brought the dog to an abrupt halt much to Ryder's immense relief. "Sit."
The damn dog sat and Ryder threw a dark look in Tiny's direction until he realised the dog's head was level with Juliet's chest. No wonder he'd been so eager to obey.
The dog wasn't a flirt. He was a pervert.
"Good puppy," she crooned, cradling his head again, squishing his jowls, Tiny's wet nose smooshed into her breasts.
Fucks sake! The dog was getting more action than he was. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Moth Smoke quotes by Hassan Blasim
#46. He sent you a text message that read: FIre Sign - You're compatible with all signs. Your blood group breathes disappointment and happiness. You stick your tongue in the woman's mouth in order to cool down. The fog that burns on the ceiling is the steam of sweat. You buy pins and colored pictures from the shop. You pin them on your flesh when you receive a guest. The firewood comes to you throughout the night, wrapped in nightmares. When you wake up you have a bath on fire. You eat on fire. You read the newspapers on fire. You smoke a cigarette on fire. In the coffee cup you come across prophecies of fire. You laugh on fire. You have your lungs checked at the hospital, and they find a spring of errors that looks like a tumor. You dream of the final act: It goes out. #Quote by Hassan Blasim
Moth Smoke quotes by Ilana Glazer
#47. I'm surprised when people who don't usually smoke weed are into edibles. I can't believe that. #Quote by Ilana Glazer
Moth Smoke quotes by M.J. Rose
#48. I felt his voice. Fingers rubbing moss. Smoke curling. Wood worn and smoothed over time. His voice had darkness in it that hovered close to the ground, like a mist hanging over a lake deep in a forest at dusk. A bolt of sea-green velvet. A sensation as much as a series of sounds. It reverberated inside me. #Quote by M.J. Rose
Moth Smoke quotes by Larry Gelbart
#49. The Amazon is still burning; we just don't hear the smoke detectors anymore. #Quote by Larry Gelbart
