The Catcher In The Rye quotes by The New York Times
#1. [On The Catcher in the Rye] "This Salinger, he's a short story guy. And he knows how to write about kids. This book though, it's too long. Gets kind of monotonous. And he should've cut out a lot about these jerks and all that crumby school. They depress me. - James Stern #Quote by The New York Times
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Lois Lowry
#2. In 1952, when I was 15 and living on Governors Island, which was then First Army Headquarters, I encountered the newly-published 'The Catcher in the Rye.' Of course, that book became the iconic anti-establishment novel for my generation. #Quote by Lois Lowry
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Libba Bray
#3. Any book that can help you survive the slings and arrows of adolescence is a book to love for life; 'The Catcher in the Rye' did just that, and I still do love it. #Quote by Libba Bray
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger

The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#5. Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#6. I thought it was, "If a body catch a body," Anyway, i keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and no ones around - nobody big I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of this crazy cliff. What i have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they are going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know its crazy, but that the only thing I's really like to be. I know its crazy. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#7. That's the whole trouble. When you're feeling very depressed, you can't even think. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#8. Lawyers are alright, I guess - but it doesn't appeal to me", I said. "I mean they're alright if they go around saving innocent guys' lives all the time, and like that, but you don't do that kind of stuff if you're a lawyer. All you do is make a lot of dough and play golf and play bridge and buy cars and drink Martinis and look like a hot-shot. And besides, even if you did go around saving guys' lives and all, how would you know if you did it because you really wanted to save guys' lives, or because you did it because what you really wanted to do was be a terrific lawyer, with everybody slapping you on the back and congratulating you in court when the goddam trial was over, the reporters and everybody, the way it is in the dirty movies? How would you know you weren't being a phony? The trouble is you wouldn't. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#9. I'm aware that many of my friends will be saddened and shocked, or shock-saddened, over some of the chapters in 'The Catcher in the Rye.' Some of my best friends are children. In fact, all my best friends are children. It's almost unbearable for me to realize that my book will be kept on a shelf, out of their reach. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Laura Miller
#10. If you've ever read one of those articles that asks notable people to list their favorite books, you may have been impressed or daunted to see them pick Proust or Thomas Mann or James Joyce. You might even feel sheepish about the fact that you reread Pride and Prejudice or The Lord of the Rings, or The Catcher in the Rye or Gone With the Wind every couple of years with some much pleasure. Perhaps, like me, you're even a little suspicious of their claims, because we all know that the books we've loved best are seldom the ones we esteem the most highly - or the ones we'd most like other people to think we read over and over again. #Quote by Laura Miller
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#11. Oh, Romeo and Juliet! Lovely! Didn't you just love it?"She certainly didn't sound like a nun.
"Yes. I did. I liked it a lot. There were a few things I didn`t like about it, but it was quite moving, on the whole."
"What didn`t you like abut it? Can you remember?"
To tell you the truth, it was sort of embarrassing, in a way, to be talking about Romeo and Juliet with her. I mean that play gets pretty sexy in some parts, and she was a nun and all, but she asked me, so I discussed it with her for a while. "Well, I`m not too crazy about Romeo and Juliet,"I said. "I mean I like them, but – I don't know. They get pretty annoying sometimes. I mean I felt much sorrier when old Mercutio got killed then when Romeo and Juliet did. The thing is, I never liked Romeo too much after Mercutio gets stabbed by that other man – Juliet's cousin – what's his name?"(The Catcher in The Rye, p. 111). #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#12. Don't tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody."

- Holden Caulfield

The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#13. The catcher in the rye ... that's all I really want to be ... #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Sam Mills
#14. Your generation - you've not heard the Verve or Jimi Hendrix or Eminem, you've not read The Catcher in the Rye, you've not seen a classic film like Terminator or Blade Runner. All you've done is read dross, listen to crap and watch Disney movies with happy endings. And what kind of generation have we produced? A slow, simple, dull one who never questions anything. A stunted generation. It's devolution because in order for society to progress, you need to be able to debate ideas, to question, to see the dark and the light in things #Quote by Sam Mills
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#15. I'd be the catcher in the rye and all. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#16. One of the biggest reasons I left Elkton Hills was because I was surrounded by phonies. That's all. They were coming in the goddam window. For instance, they had this headmaster, Mr. Haas, that was the phoniest bastard I ever met in my life. Ten times worse than old Thurmer. On Sundays, for instance, old Haas went around shaking hands with everybody's parents when they drove up to school. He'd be charming as hell and all. Except if some boy had little old funny-looking parents. You should've seen the way he did with my roommate's parents. I mean if a boy's mother was sort of fat or corny-looking or something, and if somebody's father was one of those guys that wear those suits with very big shoulders and corny black-and-white shoes, then old Haas would just shake hands with them and give them a phony smile and then he'd go talk, for maybe a half an hour, with somebody else's parents. I can't stand that stuff. It drives me crazy. It makes me so depressed I go crazy. I hated that goddam Elkton Hills #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Shane Salerno
#17. DAVID SHIELDS: Salinger told Whit Burnett... that on D-Day he was carrying six chapters of 'The Catcher in the Rye', that he needed those pages with him not only as an amulet to help him survive but as a reason to survive. #Quote by Shane Salerno
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#18. How'd she happen to mention me? Does she do to B.M. now? She said she might go there. she said she might go to Shipley, too. I thought she went to Shipley. how'd she happen to mention me?"
- Personally after reading chapters 1-5 and learning about Jane and Holden's relationship as friends or just to people you can tell that obviously he does truly care about this girl. To make situations between Holden and Stradlater I see jealousy come with in the mix when a date between "Strad" and jane come up to holden during one of there normal horsing around moods #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Jon Doust
#19. The boarding school memoir or novel is an enduring literary subgenre, from 1950s classics such as The Catcher in the Rye to Curtis Sittenfeld's Prep. Doust's recognisably Australian contribution to the genre draws on his own experiences in a West Australian boarding school in this clever, polished, detail-rich debut novel. From the opening pages, the reader is wholly transported into the head of Jack Muir, a sensitive, sharp-eyed boy from small-town WA who is constantly measured (unfavourably) against his goldenboy brother. The distinctive, masterfully inhabited adolescent narrator recalls the narrator in darkly funny coming-of-age memoir Hoi Polloi (Craig Sherborne) - as does the juxtaposition of stark naivety and carefully mined knowingness.' - Bookseller+Publisher #Quote by Jon Doust
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#20. The thing is, if you get very depressed about something, it's hard as hell to swallow. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Kami Garcia
#21. Sunday night, I reread The Catcher in the Rye until I felt tired enough to fall asleep. Only I never got tired enough. And I couldn't read, because reading didn't feel the same. #Quote by Kami Garcia
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Libba Bray
#22. 'The Catcher in the Rye.' When I was a teenager, that was my book; yes, somebody gets it, somebody gets adolescence. #Quote by Libba Bray
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Sallinger
#23. That's the whole trouble. You can't ever find a place that's nice and peaceful, because there isn't any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you're not looking, somebody'll sneak up and write 'Fuck you' right under your nose. #Quote by J.D. Sallinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by J.D. Salinger
#24. I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all ... I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye #Quote by J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by John Green
#25. We have a bad habit of seeing books as sort of cheaply made movies where the words do nothing but create visual narratives in our heads.
So too often what passes for literary criticism is "I couldn't picture that guy", or "I liked that part", or "this part shouldn't have happened." That is, we've left language so far behind that sometimes we judge quality solely based on a story's actions.
So we can appreciate a novel that constructs its conflicts primarily through plot - the layered ambiguity of a fatal car accident caused by a vehicle owned by Gatsby but driven by someone else, for instance. But in this image-drenched world, sometimes we struggle to appreciate and celebrate books where the quality arises not exclusively from plot but also from the language itself. #Quote by John Green
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Brett Martin
#26. In what must surely be considered one of the great lost scripts of history (or a Saturday Night Live sketch), Chase brought his usual sensibility to a trial run, having Kevin discover The Catcher in the Rye and start smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee, and conversing with the shade of Holden Caulfield. #Quote by Brett Martin
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Carrie Ryan
#27. It's as though my mother's life has been cut in two and we each only hold half of her memories. And I realize that even combined we would never know the whole. She's greater than the sum of what we remember of her. The woman Harry knows and the one I know are just edges of something larger.
I think about Elias and what he knows of my life in the Forest. And of Catcher and what he knows of my life in Vista. But does either of them know the whole of me? #Quote by Carrie Ryan
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#28. Morgan and Catcher said their manly hellos - consisting of a symbolic head bob from Catcher (of the "You're in my lair now" variety) and a responding nod from Morgan (of the "You are clearly the king of this castle" variety). #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Claudia Pavel
#29. It's made of poetry and art and lost hearts enhanced in magic
It's the kingdom of love, where free spirits find their resilience
It's the dream catcher of lost passion and deep silence
It's the torso where rebel souls find their homeland
It's the beginning of a dream and the end of another
It's what keeps you up in the night, when you're breathing dreams
It's that madness of artists caught in the wind
It's the night on a full moon drown between chimeras
It's you making love to me, under the blessings of Seine..."
(fragment from "Paris", chapter Hope) #Quote by Claudia Pavel
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#30. Catcher shrugged, refolded the paper, and stuffed it back into his pocket. "Anyone wanna dance?"
"Oh, Jesus," Mallory muttered.
"Dance?" I asked. "I could dance. I need to change, but I can dance." I could always dance. My hips didn't lie.
Mallory tucked her tongue into her cheek, then gave Catcher a look of mock irritation. "Nice going, Gandalf. You'll rile her up, and I'll never get her tucked in. You wanna give her candy and caffeine while you're at it? #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Steve Hamilton
#31. Leon, no offense, but you don't exactly look like a hockey player."
"I told 'em I was a goalie. That's where they put the guy who can't skate, right? Just like in baseball when they put the worst player at catcher. #Quote by Steve Hamilton
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Stephen Rodrick
#32. Occasionally, a young catcher is born with a backup's soul. Bob Montgomery was on the Red Sox opening day roster for the entire 1970s, yet he never had more than 254 at-bats in a season. #Quote by Stephen Rodrick
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Billy Graham
#33. In many homes and among so-called educated people - it has become fashionable to joke about the Bible and to regard it more as a dust-catcher than as the living Word of God. #Quote by Billy Graham
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Jase Robertson
#34. I found the same excitement in hunting frogs and deer for the first time. The first time I went frog-hunting, I was dumb-founded that someone could have that much fun without doing something immoral or illegal. I was the ice chest man on my first hunt, which basically meant every time my dad caught a frog I would quickly open the lid and then shut it before the frog jumped out. I realized the best part was being the catcher. I don't want to brag, but I became one of the greatest frog catchers on the planet. #Quote by Jase Robertson
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Cassandra Clare
#35. Isabelle drifted over, Jace a pace behind her. She was wearing a long black dress with boots and an even longer cutaway coat of soft green velvet, the color of moss. "I can't believe you did it!" she exclaimed. "How did you get Magnus to let Jace leave?"
"Traded him for Alec," Clary said.
Isabelle looked mildly alarmed. "Not permanently?"
"No," said Jace. "Just for a few hours. Unless I don't come back," he added thoughtfully. "In which case, maybe he does get to keep Alec. Think of it as a lease with an option to buy."
Isabelle looked dubious. "Mom and Dad won't be pleased if they find out."
"That you freed a possible criminal by trading away your brother to a warlock who looks like a gay Sonic the Hedgehog and dresses like the Child Catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?" Simon inquired. "No, probably not. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Tim DeKay
#36. I was a baseball player. I played in high school and a little bit in college. I was a catcher. I don't know if I could have played any other position. As a catcher, you're always on the ball. #Quote by Tim DeKay
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Sarah Winman
#37. The principles of catching rumours were, in fact, similar to the principals of catching dreams, but because rumour was weightier, the catcher had to be positioned closer to the ground. Rumour flew low, dreams flew high, and somewhere in between were prayers. #Quote by Sarah Winman
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
#38. 1. The cheerful horrors of inner reality amaze to the depths of the soul with the shock humor of evil. It's as if they are beating a shocker from whom you are laughing.
2. Laughter is an orgasm of awareness.
3. Science and art is a toy store. Created in order to occupy a person with something.
6. Loneliness is a catcher of erotic dreams.
7. Aphorism as a tattoo sticker in the mind.
8. You take off the mask of hypocrisy, and there are hundreds of billions of laughing monsters of monsters. They laugh in a smile of hatred; an ordinary person simply cannot stand so much awareness.
9. The idea appeared in a mirror maze and it is reflected in all the mirrors, that is, the opinion that the source cannot be found because it is hidden from your eyes. You see that opinion is a sect.
10. Laziness as an attraction a child's rocking machine is an illusion of movement. #Quote by Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Fred McMane
#39. If you don't have a catcher, the ball goes to the backstop. Casey Stengel explaining why the Mets selected mediocre catcher Hobie Landrith first in the expansion draft. #Quote by Fred McMane
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Debra Anastasia
#40. So, seeing as you know all the details already, can I count on you to be best man?" Cole watched fear creep over Blake's face. "The ceremony is at night," he added quickly.
"If Mr. Old Timey is still all jacked up from being a bullet catcher, we'll put it off," Kyle added.
Blake smiled and held his arms open to the female ball of fire. "I'll be fine, Kyle. I wouldn't want you to spend one extra day not married to Cole because of me."
Kyle hugged him carefully. "Your being well is one of the only things that could ever make me wait."
Blake answered Cole's question still hanging in the air. "I'd be honored to serve as your best man. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Johnny Bench
#41. The catcher is in the middle of everything. He sees it best. #Quote by Johnny Bench
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Louise Penny
#42. We all do stupid, cruel things as children. I remember I once took a neighbor's dog and shut it in my house, then told the little girl her dog had been picked up by the dog catcher and destroyed. I still wake up at three in the morning seeing her face. I tracked her down about ten years ago to say I was sorry but she'd been killed in a car accident."
"You have to forgive yourself", said Gamache, holding up Being.
"You're right, of course. But maybe I don't want to. Maybe that's something I don't want to lose. My own private hell. Horrible, but mine. #Quote by Louise Penny
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Joaquin Lowe
#43. I could just like down, right here, and let the sand cover me like a blanket. But my legs, clumsy as they've become, keep stumbling forward on their own. I'm not frightened and I'm not sorry. Not even a little bit. Nikko and I shared this fate, six years apart. We both walked into the desert, and we will both have died out here, under the wide open sky. At this moment, I feel closer to him than I have in years. Maybe that's what Endd meant when she said that none of us are ever truly alone. #Quote by Joaquin Lowe
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Ross Lovegrove
#44. Modern design becomes the eye catcher because it's out of context, it is something newborn and fresh, something people have never seen before. I mean, that in itself is the way we should sort of stimulate the senses of society, this urban condition. #Quote by Ross Lovegrove
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Melody  Lee
#45. Come, get entwined in the dream catcher of my heart. #Quote by Melody Lee

The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Gregory Benford
#47. In early 1945 Berg did go to Switzerland, as depicted here a bit earlier, to kill Heisenberg if necessary. Sitting in the front row of Heisenberg's seminar, he determined that the Germans were nowhere near their goal, so he complimented Heisenberg on his speech about field theory and walked him back to his hotel. Moe Berg's report was distributed to Britain's prime minister, Winston Churchill, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, and key figures in the team developing the atomic bomb. Roosevelt responded: "Give my regards to the catcher." Werner #Quote by Gregory Benford
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Terry Pratchett
#48. This is inhuman!" shrieked Rat-catcher 2.
"No, it's very human," said Keith. "It's extremely human. There isn't a beast in the world that'd do it to another living thing, but your poisons do it to rats every day. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#49. And in the meantime, he's making me drink grass clippings."

Catcher rolled his eyes. "It's kale, and it's good for you."

"I don't see how it could be," she said, and I grimaced on her behalf. It did look like grass clippings. #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Michael Chabon
#50. The first and last duty of the lover of the game of baseball," Peavine's book began, "whether in the stands or on the field, is the same as that of the lover of life itself: to pay attention to it. When it comes to the position of catcher, as all but fools and shortstops will freely acknowledge, this solemn requirement is doubled. #Quote by Michael Chabon
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Paul Ekman
#51. 3. When the behavior changes occur in relation to a specific topic or question, that tells the lie catcher this could be a hot area to explore. #Quote by Paul Ekman
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Bob Feller
#52. If you believe your catcher is intelligent and you know that he has considerable experience, it is a good thing to leave the game almost entirely in his hands. #Quote by Bob Feller
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#53. He wants you," Lindsey said. "Physically and otherwise. Maybe you only need to remind him that you can handle yourself." "How?" "Girl, you're the Sentinel of this House, and you've been trained by Catcher and Luc and Ethan. He's in the training room right now. Get down there and kick his ass." I smiled slyly. Now, that was a plan that made sense. #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Bill Dickey
#54. A catcher must want to catch. He must make up his mind that it isn't the terrible job it is painted, and that he isn't going to say every day, 'Why, oh why with so many other positions in baseball did I take up this one.' #Quote by Bill Dickey
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by John Irving
#55. In the sixties, dear Bill, we did not say 'top' and 'bottom' - we said 'pitcher' and 'catcher' ... #Quote by John Irving
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Kirk Gibson
#56. My idea of a 'super bowl' is when the catcher is standing in front of the plate with the ball, waiting for me as I round third ... and I make him drop it. That's a quality Super Bowl. #Quote by Kirk Gibson
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#57. I tried to lighten the mood, and pointed at the house shoes - the last things I'd have expected to see Catcher Bell wearing. "And the shoes?" I asked with a grin.
"My house, my rules. These shoes happen to be comfortable," he said "If you two roamed around the house naked and carrying bows and arrows before I moved in, it's none of my business. #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Philip Roth
#58. Now obviously, in peacetime a one-legged catcher, like a one-armed outfielder (such as the Mundys had roaming right), would have been at the most a curiosity somewhere down in the dingiest town in the minors - precisely where Hot had played during the many years that the nations of the world lived in harmony. But it is one of life's grisly ironies that what is catastrophe for most of mankind, invariably works to the advantage of a few who live on the fringes of the human community. On the other hand, it is a grisly irony to live on the fringes of the human community. #Quote by Philip Roth
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#59. Hey, better than the real thing," I said. "What do you even do with a chimera?"
"What wouldn't you do with a chimera?" Jeff asked. "They're like the Swiss Army knife of animals."
"Party in the front, business in the back," Catcher agreed.
That earned a snort and laugh from me. "Any animal that can be compared to a mullet is a good animal in my book. #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Jim Harbaugh
#60. People talk about cold weather and it'd be tough to catch balls. But the greatest catcher of all time, Michael Crabtree, catches everything. It's unbelievable. In the northern snowlands, down to the tropics' sunny scenes, he's catching the football. Where they throw a football, he'll be catching it. #Quote by Jim Harbaugh
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#61. Do you need to reschedule? There are some other things I could take care of while I'm in town."
Mallory waved him off. "No, today's fine. It's going to be on the exam, so I might as well do it."
"Oh, my God, you are Harry Potter," I said, pointing a finger at her. "I knew it!"
She rolled her eyes, then looked at Catcher. #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Carrie Ryan
#62. You know how you can think you know someone or think you know them but maybe you only know them one way?" He sneaks a glance at me and I notice that his cheeks are red in the moonlight. "Maybe you know someone as your little sister's friend," he says. "And then maybe something shifts. Maybe one day you hear them say something unexpected. Or hear the way they laugh and then suddenly you see them all over again. Like this time it's different. This time maybe you see them as ... " He pauses. "Beautiful," he finishes. Catcher leans in closer. "Wonderful and funny. #Quote by Carrie Ryan
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Eric Idle
#63. I used to think I was like the wicket- keeper, which is like the catcher in base- ball, y'know what I mean? You can call the play a lot from behind the plate, y'know what I mean? You're not necessarily the star, you're not the one that makes the mark, but usually in the end, you're called upon to get a run when it's needed. #Quote by Eric Idle
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Jim Bain
#64. A good catcher is, shall we say, a dime a dozen, but a great catcher is worth her weight in gold.
A great catcher has an uncanny ability to withstand pain and play through it. she's expected to provide power with her bat, have a rocket launcher for a throwing arm and must be one of, if not the smartest player on the field. #Quote by Jim Bain
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#65. Girl, you're the Sentinel of this House, and you've been trained by Catcher and Luc and Ethan. He's in the training room right now. Get down there and kick his ass! #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Chloe Neill
#66. And what about us?" Catcher asked.
Gabriel's eyebrows lifted. "You're part of the mystery-solving gang, aren't you?"
Catcher muttered something unflattering, and Mallory nudged him. "I presume you want us to stay here tonight?" she asked.
"It would make things easier," Gabe said.
"So we'll sleep on the couch," Catcher said, "like we're twelve-year-olds at a slumber party."
"In fairness," Ethan said, "we don't all have to sleep on the couch."
"In fairness," Catcher said, "you can kiss my ass."
"Ladies," Mallory said. "Let's put on our big-girl panties. Merit and Ethan are already sleeping in the bedroom, and there's no point in making them move. Catcher and I can take the couch. The shifters will feel better if we make this work, and it's no great loss to any of us. #Quote by Chloe Neill
The Catcher In The Rye quotes by Wallace Stegner
#67. I'll tell you why I'm dubious. These will be young people in this garden commune, I assume. That means they'll be stoned half the time–one of the things you can grow in gardens is
Cannabis.
That won't go down well with the neighbors. Neither will free-form marriage or the natural-credit Communist economy. They'll be visited by the cops every week. They'll be lucky if the American Legion doesn't burn them out, or sic the dog catcher on their wild life children."
"None of that has anything to do with
them.
It only has to do with people outside."
"Sure," I said, "but those people aren't going to go away. If they won't leave the colony alone I'll give it six months. If it isn't molested it might last a year or two. By that time half the people will have drifted away in search of bigger kicks, and the rest will be quarreling about some communal woman, or who got the worst corner of the garden patch, or who ate up all the sweet corn. Satisfying natural desires is fine, but natural desires have a way of being both competitive and consequential. And women may be equal to men, but they aren't equal in attractiveness any more than men are. Affections have a way of fixing on individuals, which breeds jealousy, which breeds possessiveness, which breeds bad feeling. Q.E.D. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
