Thinned Skin quotes by Jane Yolen
#1. Rising only to the edge of her waist - for she knew full well how the sight of a tail affects mortal men - the mermaid showed the prince her shell-like breasts, her pearly skin, the phosphorescence of her hair. She held a webbed hand over her mouth, her fingers as slim as the ribs of a fan. Then she pulled her hand away, displaying her smile. She was well trained in the arts of seduction, as was he. Royalty abounds in it. #Quote by Jane Yolen
Thinned Skin quotes by Kathy Reichs
#2. I try to be open-minded, to judge each individual on merit and accomplishment. I hold no bias against any belief system, sexual orientation, or skin color that differs from mine. I do not hate in stereotype. #Quote by Kathy Reichs
Thinned Skin quotes by Naomi Shihab Nye
#3. Skin had hope, that's what skin does. Heals over the scarred place, makes a road. #Quote by Naomi Shihab Nye
Thinned Skin quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#4. One of his palms slipped into the open back of her gown, seeking the skin above the edge of her corset, and a sigh escaped him as he felt her downy softness. "Not yet," he said in a rough whisper, though whether he was talking to himself or to her was unclear. He clasped the vulnerable curve of her neck in one strong hand, and bent to feast on her parted lips, her chin, the front of her throat. "You're so sweet," he said raggedly.
She couldn't help but grin, even in the flush of desire. "Am I?"
Marcus sought her mouth with another hungering kiss. "Very sweet," he confirmed huskily. "Though if I were a lesser man, you'd have torn my head off by now."
The words drew a low laugh from her. "Now I understand the attraction between us. We're a danger to everyone but each other. Like a pair of ill-tempered hedgehogs."
-Marcus & Lillian #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Thinned Skin quotes by Ralph McTell
#5. This little patch of earth and this little pile of stones I can wash the dust from off my face and skin But this earth is in my bones #Quote by Ralph McTell
Thinned Skin quotes by Kelly Moran
#6. He'd bet his right nut her skin would taste as good as it smelled. #Quote by Kelly Moran
Thinned Skin quotes by Maggie Georgiana Young
#7. I believe that social media has become a treacherous platform for love interests. Before the Internet invaded our lives, I'm sure that each single person liked a lot of people at one time. Before falling into a committed relationship, there are steps taken to get there. Often, this involves talking to and even dating a few people at once. That's logical. But with Facebook, your competition is suddenly splattered in your face.
All I had to do was click onto Number 23's profile and scan one after another wall post from ladies who may or may not be his mating potentials or mating pasts. I see their names and faces. When I click onto their photos, I open a Pandora's box into their lives. I see their friends, professions, achievements, hobbies, and bodies. I evaluate, I compare, and when I'm insecure, I tear apart. I copy, paste, email, and text the images to my friends, so that they can assure me that I'm prettier, smarter, have bigger breasts, clearer skin, have something that would make him a fool to want her over me. Suddenly, I am stalking, letting fits of rage overcome me with violent hatred for these women who I've never met. #Quote by Maggie Georgiana Young
Thinned Skin quotes by Mark Doty
#8. After he died, there was a deep calm to his face; he seemed a kind of unfathomable, still well which opened on and down beneath the suddenly smooth surface of his skin ... The heat in him lasted a long time. I loved that heat. I don't know how long I held his face and his shoulders and stroked him; as he began to cool I kept my hands on his belly, where the last of his warmth seemed to pool and concentrate. Here the fire of the body came to rest, smoldering longest, down to the last embers. #Quote by Mark Doty
Thinned Skin quotes by Kendall Ryan
#9. Hey, Noah?"
"Yes?" he says sweetly.
"Why do you call me Snowflake?"
He steps closer and runs one finger along my cheek, making my skin tingle in its wake. "Because you're just like a snowflake. Beautiful and unique, and with one touch you'll be wet. #Quote by Kendall Ryan
Thinned Skin quotes by Gwenn Wright
#10. For a moment she believed he had left, but as she shifted away from the wall she sensed him there beside the bed. He was very close.
Wretched curiosity!
But she would fight it and not look.
"Katherine," he whispered, his breath rolling in a warm wave across her cheek. A traitor tear spilled out, the humiliation was too much to contain. Gently, a finger dabbed the wetness from her skin. He said it again, softly, as though it pleased him just to say it, "Katherine."
"Viktor!" the accented voice bellowed from below. And then the shadow was gone.
Darkness overwhelmed her then and carried her away to a land of crows and mocking strangers. #Quote by Gwenn Wright
Thinned Skin quotes by Banana Yoshimoto
#11. Things keep coming around and around in this world, it's all crammed violently together, two parts of the same skin. #Quote by Banana Yoshimoto
Thinned Skin quotes by Sam Keen
#12. Throughout my life, I've had different metaphors for freedom. At one time, it was skin diving. In the ocean you feel weightless; you escape from gravity. #Quote by Sam Keen
Thinned Skin quotes by Tim O'Brien
#13. You're a shadow. You slip out of your own skin, like molting, shedding your own history and your own future, leaving behind everything you ever were or wanted or believed in. #Quote by Tim O'Brien
Thinned Skin quotes by Renee Ahdieh
#14. Lord Ranmaru, traitor and thief, will you marry a fallen woman with no chance of redemption in the eyes of our court?"

Ōkami laughed before he swept Mariko into his arms. "Yes," he whispered in her ear. The feeling of warmth as his breath passed over her skin sent a thrill up Mariko's spine.

"And will you swear never to interfere when I experiment with strange chemicals at all hours of the night?"
"Of course." Ōkami framed her face between his hands. "Upon who else would I rely for exploding gourds and crystals that burn brighter than flame? #Quote by Renee Ahdieh
Thinned Skin quotes by Maajid Nawaz
#15. The fact that my skin color hadn't been an issue for those early years of schooling says everything about where racism originates: it is a cultural issue, a societal and familial problem that children soak up as they become more aware of the world. But #Quote by Maajid Nawaz
Thinned Skin quotes by Robert Crais
#16. What they smell isn't the emotion of fear. What dogs can smell is the changes in a person's skin that suggest fear to the dog, anxiety, the way your skin sweats, the amount of uric acid that suddenly pours out of your pores. #Quote by Robert Crais
Thinned Skin quotes by Bill Bryson
#17. Never has the promise of glowing skin been more dangerously apt than in the early years of the twentieth century when radium was commonly used as a featured ingredient in beauty products. (credit 7.11) Thanks #Quote by Bill Bryson
Thinned Skin quotes by Douglas Woolf
#18. Closing the door, Claudine looked at him. She looked at him, and while he waited for some expression to come to her face he knew how a doctor must feel sometimes when he looks at a belly. For her face was no more than a cover of skin, showing nothing of the terrible, complicated things, ugly and beautiful, that were going on inside her. #Quote by Douglas Woolf
Thinned Skin quotes by Shinji Moon
#19. Tectonic plates are shifting beneath my skin
and there's a new continent in my chest
that I want to call by your name #Quote by Shinji Moon
Thinned Skin quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#20. Because of writers like Chinua Achebe and Camara Laye ... I realized that people like me, girls with skin the color of chocolate, whose kinky hair could not form ponytails, could also exist in literature. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Thinned Skin quotes by Nitya Prakash
#21. I like to look at people's hands. The lines drawn, the color of their skin. All beautifully different. Not one is raised or taught the same. #Quote by Nitya Prakash
Thinned Skin quotes by Ann Greyson
#22. Her lips glided down my neck, forming delicate kisses as she explored the carotid artery pulsating beneath my skin. #Quote by Ann Greyson
Thinned Skin quotes by Anna-Marie McLemore
#23. The truth slid over her skin, that if she loved him, sometimes it would mean doing nothing. It would mean being still. It would mean saying nothing, but standing close enough so he would know she was there, that she was staying. #Quote by Anna-Marie McLemore
Thinned Skin quotes by Lauren Blakely
#24. I want to take a snapshot of this moment. I want to record every second of this strange and joyous connection I feel with her and the life growing inside her.
The doctor leaves us alone, and I bend my face to her belly and press the gentlest kiss to her skin. "Hi, baby," I say, and I know, I fucking know, that I'm already in love with my child. #Quote by Lauren Blakely
Thinned Skin quotes by Sirshree
If you believe that whatever is inside my skin 'I' and whatever is outside my skin is not 'I', then meditation breaks this belief. #Quote by Sirshree
Thinned Skin quotes by Heather Demetrios
#26. The wind gusted through the palms and the fronds rubbed together like crumpled tissue paper. It carried the scent of manure and gasoline and the orchard behind the fence. It blew under the thin material of my dress, and I shivered when it slipped over my skin. I envied its reckless abandon, the way it touched without fear. #Quote by Heather Demetrios
Thinned Skin quotes by Tess Callahan
#27. He was so close she could almost hear the movement of his thoughts, the role of the tide; she had slipped inside his skin. #Quote by Tess Callahan
Thinned Skin quotes by Jeri Smith-Ready
#28. Forever"

by Logan Keeley

October 18, 20xx

Lying beside me in the failure of flesh,

You wait for the words that will let your mind rest,

But I've already left you - I'm inside this song,

I'm chasing the rhythms that split right from wrong,

Forming chords on your shoulder, tracing notes on your hips,

I can't hear your thoughts as they fall from your lips, and

Every day I give away

A piece of me all torn and frayed -

What I can't keep, I sell for cheap,

Til nothing's left for you and me -


How can so much love feel like nothing at all?

How can so much nothing leave me dying to crawl

To the foot of your bed,

I should be with you - instead,

I walk away, stumbling, waiting, always waiting to fall.

When you look in my eyes, can you see I'm not there,

Just skin over bones and this flesh that I bear,

And there's no room for you, and you know I can never

Get out of myself, get over myself,

For even one moment, much less for forever.

They all take their shares and they all think they see

This stranger inside who pretends to be me.

They're a roomful of mirrors in this funhouse of fame,

I shrink and I grow, I am wild, I am tame,
< #Quote by Jeri Smith-Ready
Thinned Skin quotes by Sherry Thomas
#29. I see you are fixated on the least of my doings," he said. "Very well, my abrupt departure from the Domain is easily enough explained: I am not at your beck and call, Madam Inquisitor. You cannot simply say to me, 'May I call on you this evening, Your Highness, to discuss what you have seen?'"

The Inquisitor thinned her lips.

"Besides, if you had taken the time to inquire from my attendants, you would have learned that I had decided to go back to school at an earlier time, before the lightning came down.

"Now, the hotel suite. I am a young man and have needs that must be met. Since that slum of a school Atlantis so strenuously recommended does not allow for such activities, I keep a place outside of school. As for why I left, I cannot imagine why I should remain once the deed is done."

"And where was your accomplice in . . . the deed?"

"Left before I did. No need for her presence once she had served her purpose."

"There was no report of anyone coming or going."

Of course not, since she left with me.

This time he had to swallow the words as they rose on his tongue.

"Were you watching all the service doors? A large hotel has many."

"Where did you find her?"

In a certain house in Little-Grind-on-Woe. Very well suited to wielding lightning, that girl.

"In a certain - "

Thinned Skin quotes by Richelle Mead
#30. Why?" He asked. " because it was the closest I could get to doing this."
He reached out and pulled me to him, one hand on my waist and the other behind my neck. He tipped my head up and lowered his lips on mine. I closed my eyes and melted as my whole body was consumed in that kiss. I was nothing. I was everything. Chills ran over my skin, and fire burnt inside me. His body pressed closer to mine, and I wrapped my arms around his neck. His lips were warmer and softer than anything I could have imagined, yet fierce and powerful at the same time. Mine responded hungrily, and I tightened my hold on him. His fingers slid down the back of my neck, tracing its shape, and every place they touched was electric.
But perhaps the best part of all that was that I, Sydney Katherine Sage, guilty of constantly analyzing the world around me, well, I stopped thinking.
And it was glorious.
At least, it was until I started thinking again. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Thinned Skin quotes by John Steinbeck
#31. The man sitting in the iron seat did not look like a man; gloved, goggled, rubber dust mask over nose and mouth, he was part of the monster, a robot in the seat. The thunder of the cylinders sounded through the country, became one with the air and the earth, so that earth and air muttered in sympathetic vibration. The driver could not control it–straight across country it went, cutting through a dozen farms and straight back. A twitch at the controls could swerve the cat', but the driver's hands could not twitch because the monster that built the tractor, the monster that sent that tractor out, had somehow got into the driver's hands, into his brain and muscle, had goggled him and muzzled him–goggled his mind, muzzled his speech, goggled his perception, muzzled his protest. He could not see the land as it was, he could not smell the power of the earth. He sat in an iron seat and stepped on iron pedals. He could not cheer or beat or curse or encourage the extension of his power, and because of this he could not cheer or whip or curse or encourage himself. He did now know or own or trust or beseech the land. If a seed dropped did not germinate, it was no skin off his ass. If the young thrusting plant withered in drought or drowned in a flood of rain, it was no more to the driver than to the tractor.
He loved the land no more than the bank loved the land. He could admire the tractor–its machined surfaces, its surge of power, the roar of its detonating cylinders; but it was #Quote by John Steinbeck
Thinned Skin quotes by Gregory Nicotero
#32. I love the expression 'makes your skin crawl,' because when you have that sensation while you're watching something, it really does. #Quote by Gregory Nicotero
Thinned Skin quotes by Jen Frederick
#33. I was the one the left. I tuck my phone away, place my hands on my thighs, and lean over to catch my breath. I wonder if this is how the Hulk feels before he goes green. My heart races, my palms sweat, and I feel like I'm coming out of my skin. #Quote by Jen Frederick
Thinned Skin quotes by Harrison Ford
#34. I think the best movies are made not from a point of view that depends on your personal history, whether it's the color of your skin, or the politics that you've had, or the place that you come from. #Quote by Harrison Ford
Thinned Skin quotes by Cara McKenna
#35. I love your body, for everything it's given to me," he murmured. "For letting me ... letting me inside you. After all that time. And your hands, for touching me, and your soft skin, for letting me touch you. For your mouth. And kissing you, and for the things you asked me. For your ears, for being willing to hear my answers. #Quote by Cara McKenna
Thinned Skin quotes by Kristen Ashley
#36. I prefer your smiles and laughter, wife, but there are far worse things than your tears wetting my skin. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Thinned Skin quotes by Glenn Beck
#37. Let me go over this again on the reclaiming the civil rights movement. People of faith that believe that you have an equal right to justice - that is the essence. And if it's not the essence, then we've been sold a pack of lies. The essence is everyone deserves a shot - the content of character, not the color of skin. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Thinned Skin quotes by Catherine O'Hara
#38. I wouldn't mind spending a little more time and effort and money on good skin care. And I'm sure they'll come out with, as they are doing, with more and more treatments that are noninvasive and healthy ways to keep your face looking as good as it can. #Quote by Catherine O'Hara
Thinned Skin quotes by Roshani Chokshi
#39. I had been walking through the Chakara Forest. Fat moths the size of palms wreathed my hair like pearls and moonstones. And then, as I had done since before language burgeoned in the velvet clefts of the mind--I danced.
Not a slow dance, but sharp, punctual movements. My dance organized the shadows of trees, canceled the cloying plumes of wind-fallen fruit, aligned the moonbeams themselves. My back arced gracefully as I moved, neck extended like an oryx, fingers conjuring sharp kathas of rhythm, when a sound crunched not far from me.
I spun around. "Who's there?"
From beneath the heart-shaped leaves of a peepal tree, something rustled. And a voice, so lush it made ambrosia acrid, answered me.
"Only the lowly painter who tries each night, in vain, to capture evening herself."
"What do you want? Show yourself."
The stranger stepped out of the peepal tree. He was broad-shouldered, his features as severely beautiful as a strike of lightning. He wore a crown of blackbuck horns that arced in graceful whorls of onyx, catching the light. But it was his gaze that robbed the clamoring rhythm in my chest.
His stare slipped beneath my skin. And when he saw my eyes widen, he smiled. And in that moment, his smile banished my loneliness and limned the hollows of my anima with starlight, pure and bright. He moved toward me, grasping my hand, and his touch hummed in my bones like an aria. A song to my dance. The beginning of a promise. #Quote by Roshani Chokshi
Thinned Skin quotes by Peter Matthiessen
#40. It was a gringo; in the remote corners of the world the short-sleeved flowered tourist shirt, the steel-rimmed glasses, khaki pants and bulldog shoes had become the uniform of earnest American enterprise. Moon recognized the man as the new missionary. His head was cropped too close, so that his white skull gleamed, and the red skin of his neck and jaw was riddled with old acne; his face was bald with anxiety and tiresome small agonies. #Quote by Peter Matthiessen
Thinned Skin quotes by Marie Clements
I see you - and don't worry, you're not white.

I'm pretty sure I'm white. I'm English.

White is blindness - it has nothing to do with the colour of your skin. #Quote by Marie Clements
Thinned Skin quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#42. Don't worry," he kept saying. "The overworld can't hurt you if you stay calm." I wasn't calm at all. But my panic was like a poisonous snake at a zoo, staring at me from the other side of thick glass. Only Yamaraj's touch on my arm kept the glass from shattering. His skin seemed to burn against mine. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
