Wild Child quotes by Bai Ling
#1. I indulged the wild child inside of me - the one that's not aware of danger or fear - for the purity of existence for that character in that film. Of course, behind me they're saying, 'She's crazy!' #Quote by Bai Ling
Wild Child quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#2. Every wild apple shrub excites our expectation thus, somewhat as every wild child. It is, perhaps, a prince in disguise. What a lesson to man! So are human beings, referred to the highest standard, the celestial fruit which they suggest and aspire to bear, browsed on by fate; and only the most persistent and strongest genius defends itself and prevails, sends a tender scion upward at last, and drops its perfect fruit on the ungrateful earth. Poets and philosophers and statesmen thus spring up in the country pastures, and outlast the hosts of unoriginal men. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Wild Child quotes by Martha N. Beck
#3. Now hold up your left palm (you may have to put down this book for a minute) and picture your Wild Child there: 2 inches tall, dressed in skins and bark, covered with scars, waiting for an opportunity to escape or subvert the Dictator's brutal control. Watch until you can see them both clearly in your mind's eye. #Quote by Martha N. Beck
Wild Child quotes by Nikki Rowe
#4. What if everything you have been taught is all a lie and everything you feel is all a truth? #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Wild Child quotes by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
#5. Men like to flirt with, and sometimes even date a wild child, but those women aren't usually first on their lists for marriage or motherhood. #Quote by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
Wild Child quotes by Philip Roth
#6. You think you know what a man is? You have no idea what a man is. You think you know what a daughter is? You have no idea what a daughter is. You think you know what this country is? You have no idea what this country is. You have a false image of everything. All you know is what a fucking glove is. This country is frightening. Of course she was raped. What kind of company do you think she was keeping? Of course out there she was going to get raped. This isn't Old Rimrock, old buddy - she's out there, old buddy, in the USA. She enters that world, that loopy world out there, with whats going on out there - what do you expect? A kid from Rimrock, NJ, of course she didn't know how to behave out there, of course the shit hits the fan. What could she know? She's like a wild child out there in the world. She can't get enough of it - she's still acting up. A room off McCarter Highway. And why not? Who wouldn't? You prepare her for life milking the cows? For what kind of life? Unnatural, all artificial, all of it. Those assumptions you live with. You're still in your olf man's dream-world, Seymour, still up there with Lou Levov in glove heaven. A household tyrannized by gloves, bludgeoned by gloves, the only thing in life - ladies' gloves! Does he still tell the one about the woman who sells the gloves washing her hands in a sink between each color? Oh where oh where is that outmoded America, that decorous America where a woman had twenty-five pairs of gloves? Your kid blows your nor #Quote by Philip Roth
Wild Child quotes by Martha N. Beck
#7. close your eyes. Continue offering these good wishes while visualizing both the Wild Child and the Dictator until you genuinely mean it, until you can feel compassion toward both sides of yourself. When you get there, consider the following question. Who are you? The only reason you can "see" and offer kindness to both Dictator and the Wild Child is that you're not either one of them. You've moved into a third realm of consciousness, which resides, literally, in a different part of your brain. Call it the Watcher. #Quote by Martha N. Beck
Wild Child quotes by Rick Riordan
#8. Greek women were not allowed to be: free and untamed. In fact, Artemis is a bit of a paradox. On the one hand, her commitment to purity must have been greatly admired by Ancient Greeks; yet she is also untamable and answers to no man. She is truly the eternal wild child who never has to grow up and shoulder the responsibilities that adulthood brings. She never has to compromise herself or conform to any of society's standards. No wonder she is associated with the moon - completely untouchable, forever unattainable. If offered the option of becoming one of Artemis' immortal maidens, freed forever from the shackles of marriage or slavery, I think many Ancient Greek women would have jumped on that bandwagon as it careened past #Quote by Rick Riordan
Wild Child quotes by Clive Tyldesley
#9. Young Michael Brown is still somewhat of a wild-child, with the ill behaviour, with the ill behaviour!! #Quote by Clive Tyldesley
Wild Child quotes by Sara Humphreys
#10. Dakota started laughing. You wouldn't have anything back there to help me tame a punk-rock wild child with a disdain for cowboys, would you? #Quote by Sara Humphreys
Wild Child quotes by Anais Nin
#11. But we were lonely. we had nobody to play with. The gay child, the inventive child, the spirited and wild child, was lonely. #Quote by Anais Nin
Wild Child quotes by Mishi McCoy
#12. Baby, I'm not afraid. I've been to hell and back. I'm a free spirit, a wild child and a renegade. #Quote by Mishi McCoy
Wild Child quotes by Nikki Rowe
#13. Promise me one thing wild child,
Never filter your soul to suit a mould. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Wild Child quotes by Michael Morpurgo
#14. I was never a great reader, but there were two stories I loved best: Kipling's 'The Elephant's Child' and 'The Jungle Book.' Deep down, I've always wanted to write a book about a wild child and an elephant. #Quote by Michael Morpurgo
Wild Child quotes by Brian Greene
#15. Experience informs intuition. But it does more than that: Experience sets the frame within which we analyze and interpret what we perceive. You would no doubt expect, for instance, that the "wild child" raised by a pack of wolves would interpret the world from a perspective that differs substantially from your own. Even less extreme comparisons, such as those between people raised in very different cultural traditions, serve to underscore the degree to which our experiences determine our interpretive mindset. #Quote by Brian Greene
Wild Child quotes by John McAfee
#16. I've been called 'paranoid,' 'schizophrenic,' 'the wild child of Silicon Valley.' #Quote by John McAfee
Wild Child quotes by Samantha Hunt
#17. Sam's the man who's come to chop us up to bits. No wonder I kicked him out. No wonder I changed the locks. If he cannot stop death, what good is he? 'Open the door. Please. I'm so tired,' he says. I look at the night that absorbed my life. How am I supposed to know what's love, what's fear? 'If you're Sam who am I?' 'I know who you are.' 'You do?' 'Yeah.' 'Who?' Don't say wife, I think. Don't say mother. I put my face to the glass, but it's dark. I don't reflect. Sam and I watch each other through the window of the kitchen door. He coughs some more. 'I want to come home,' he says. 'I want us to be okay. That's it. Simple. I want to come home and be a family.' 'But I am not simple.' My body's coursing with secret genes and hormones and proteins. My body made eyeballs and I have no idea how. There's nothing simple about eyeballs. My body made food to feed those eyeballs. How? And how can I not know or understand the things that happen inside my body? That seems very dangerous. There's nothing simple here. I'm ruled by elixirs and compounds. I am a chemistry project conducted by a wild child. I am potentially explosive. Maybe I love Sam because hormones say I need a man to kill the coyotes at night, to bring my babies meat. But I don't want caveman love. I want love that lives outside the body. I want love that lives.

'In what ways are you not simple?' I think of the women I collected upstairs. They're inside me. And they are only a small fraction of the catalog. I t #Quote by Samantha Hunt
Wild Child quotes by Barbra Streisand
#18. I was kind of a wild child. I wasn't taught the niceties of life. #Quote by Barbra Streisand
Wild Child quotes by J.R. Ward
#19. There was a soft chiming sound, which meant, tragedy of tragedies, the angel had just popped himself up onto the countertop. "So, what are we doing tonight? Wait, let me guess, sitting in morose silence. Or, no ... you're mixing it up. Brooding with soulful intensity, right? What a fucking wild child you are. Whoo. Hoo. Next thing you know, you'll be opening for Slipknot."
With a curse, Tohr stood up and went over to turn on the shower, hoping that if he refused to look at the loudmouth, Lassiter would get bored more quickly and move on to ruin someone else's afternoon. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Wild Child quotes by Bret Michaels
#20. [My hair] creates this Tarzanesque, likeable bad-boy image. It says, 'I am a wild child. I will take you on a Harley ride, then make passionate love to you. And should you be attacked by a lion or an idiot at a bar, I will protect you.' #Quote by Bret Michaels
Wild Child quotes by Kresley Cole
#21. I'm on a man-fast. Why bother with them? the good ones are always taken. Or they're weirdly uminterested in a capricious wild child with continuous legal problems~ Carrow the Incarcerated #Quote by Kresley Cole
Wild Child quotes by Nikki Rowe
#22. The world is not supposed to figure me out, just look to my art, my words, my magic and let it enhance the search within yourself, to figure your damn self out instead. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Wild Child quotes by Aspen Matis
#23. I hoped my solitude would help me reclaim my innocence, remember who I'd been, to find who I wanted to be. To become her. To love her, Deborah, Debby, Doll Girl, Wild Child, me, despite the irreversible truth that I'd been raped. I was learning again that I could trust myself and, also, I was seeing, other people. I was brave enough now to go out alone towards what I wanted, to trust that I was strong enough for it, to know that help would come when I needed it. It always came. #Quote by Aspen Matis
Wild Child quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#24. Do not settle for living a version of your life designed by another. You are not meant to be gatekeeper or the holder of secrets and shame. You are here to live free and clear and into your own wide open truth. If you are spending too much time around people who expect otherwise you will begin to notice a feeling of constriction. Sometimes the life we create can be come a cage of our own making. Sometimes we stifle our truths to make others comfortable. Do not sacrifice your own comfort and freedom for that of another. The price you pay for this is too high. Define your own space. Remember your own divinity. You have a responsibility to this existence to live in fullness of your truth and art and purpose. Do not be diminished by circumstance or opinion or judgement. Your story is your own; nobody can write it but you. You hold the paper, you choose the pen, and you write your life story the way only you can. So, if someone tries to build you a box, rip that fucker apart and use the wood to build yourself a stage, then ditch your indoor voice and sing it loud. People are not meant to live quietly in small containers no matter how beautiful. A gilded cage is still confinement. You are a wild child – only the open air of freedom will do. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Wild Child quotes by Adrienne Rich
#25. Why should the wild child

Wild Child quotes by Kimberley Nixon
#26. I have six brothers, and in the past I've done quite a few girlie films, like 'Wild Child' and 'Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging' - so when they've been to those, they've been incredibly embarrassed. They won't be embarrassed going to see 'Black Death' - I reckon they're going to love it. #Quote by Kimberley Nixon
Wild Child quotes by Tzvetan Todorov
#27. Every human being needs a set of norms and rules, traditions and customs, transmitted from the older to the younger; without those norms, the individual would never achieve the fullness of his humanity, but would be reduced to the condition of the 'Wild Child", condemned to anomie, in other words to the absence of all law and all order- an absence that can create severe disturbances. #Quote by Tzvetan Todorov
Wild Child quotes by Ellen Galinsky
#28. The colicky baby who becomes calm, the quiet infant who throws temper tantrums at two, the wild child at four who becomes seriousand studious at six all seem to surprise their parents. It is difficult to let go of one's image of a child, say goodbye to the child a parent knows, and get accustomed to this slightly new child inhabiting the known child's body. #Quote by Ellen Galinsky
Wild Child quotes by Perry Farrell
#29. Music is always my great escape ... I get to be that wild child and do whatever the hell I want on stage. #Quote by Perry Farrell
Wild Child quotes by Kate Forsyth
#30. Dortchen was called the wild one because one day, when she was seven years old, she had got lost in the forest. She had wandered off to a far-distant glade where a willow tree trailed its branches in a pool of water. Dortchen crept within the shadowy tent of its branches and found a green palace. She wove herself a crown of willow tendrils and collected pebbles and flowers to be her jewels. At last, worn out, she lay down on a velvet bed of moss and fell asleep. #Quote by Kate Forsyth
Wild Child quotes by Wild Child
#31. That girl is a grade one a-hole with a severe attitudinal problem. #Quote by Wild Child
Wild Child quotes by Nikki Rowe
#32. Her love is rare but she'll keep you wild. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Wild Child quotes by Mishi McCoy
#33. I was gypsy when gypsy wasn't cool. #Quote by Mishi McCoy
Wild Child quotes by Nikki Rowe
#34. How wrong we are to ignore our hearts to follow the familiar path. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Wild Child quotes by Asia Argento
#35. Having been a child actor, I remember how directors would trick me to get good performances out of me. I don't think you need to do that. #Quote by Asia Argento
Wild Child quotes by Terry Goodkind
#36. Her heart nearly burst as she at last plunged into his embrace in one wild rush, screaming out her need, her love, her completion, wanting only to know his name so she might give everything of herself to him. His glowing smile was for her and her alone. His lips were for her and her alone. She closed that last bit of space toward him, longing to at last kiss the love of her life, the mate to her soul, the one and only true passion in all of life.
His lips were there, at last, she fell into his outstretched arms, into his embrace, into his perfect kiss.
In that flawless instant when her lips were just touching his, she saw through him, just beyond him, the merciless unyeilding valley floor hurtling up toward her, and she knew at last his name.
Death. #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Wild Child quotes by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
#37. All creatures must learn that there exist predators. Without this knowing, a woman will be unable to negotiate safely within her own forest without being devoured. To understand the predator is to become a mature animal who is not vulnerable out of naivete, inexperience, or foolishness. #Quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Wild Child quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#38. Every moment I have ever experienced as a child is as important as every moment I am experiencing now, or will experience ever. I guess what I'm saying is that not everybody should have children. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Wild Child quotes by Sarah Lyu
#39. We were a forest fire, wild and full of rage. We were a galaxy unto ourselves, a million stars blazing bright.

Everything was possible then. #Quote by Sarah Lyu
Wild Child quotes by Sam Harris
#40. Imagine that we could revive a well-educated Christian of the fourteenth century. The man would prove to be a total ignoramus, except on matters of faith. His beliefs about geography, astronomy, and medicine would embarrass even a child, but he would know more or less everything there is to know about God. #Quote by Sam Harris
Wild Child quotes by Haruki Murakami
#41. Some things can't be solved just by going wild every now and then. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Wild Child quotes by Grace Burrowes
#42. I vote you read and we fellows will listen in rapt silence." "And thus Kit is indoctrinated into the conspiracy to which all males belong," Sophie muttered. "And you ladies don't have conspiracies of your own?" He brought the child to his shoulder and started rubbing Kit's little back. The sight sent odd tendrils of warmth drifting through Sophie's insides. "We women are cooperative by nature; that's different from conspiratorial." She #Quote by Grace Burrowes
Wild Child quotes by Thomas Frank
#43. Innovation liberalism is "a liberalism of the rich," to use the straightforward phrase of local labor leader Harris Gruman. This doctrine has no patience with the idea that everyone should share in society's wealth. What Massachusetts liberals pine for, by and large, is a more perfect meritocracy--a system where everyone gets an equal chance and the truly talented get to rise. Once that requirement is satisfied--once diversity has been achieved and the brilliant people of all races and genders have been identified and credentialed--this species of liberal can't really conceive of any further grievance against the system. The demands of ordinary working-class people, Gruman says, are unpersuasive to them: "Janitors, fast-food servers home care or child care providers--most of whom are women and people of color--they don't have college degrees."

And if you don't have a college degree in Boston--brother, you've got no one to blame but yourself. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Wild Child quotes by Jan Hunt
#44. While there are other parenting books with insight into childhood, Parenting from Your Heart goes a step further, showing parents how to put theory into practice with their own child in a realistic, compassionate and effective way. This book is worth its weight in gold!? #Quote by Jan Hunt
Wild Child quotes by John Hodgman
#45. I think, as we all learn as a child, you have to learn to tolerate ambiguity better and I'm still terrible at it and I hate it; even the word ambiguity makes me sick to me stomach. #Quote by John Hodgman
Wild Child quotes by Zane Grey
#46. wild men in wild places, fighting cold, heat, starvation, thirst, barrenness, facing the elements in all their ferocity, usually retrograded, descended to the savage, lost all heart and soul and became mere brutes. #Quote by Zane Grey
Wild Child quotes by Daisy Goodwin
#47. The first thing to realize is that it is is a country that is still being imagined. Here every patch of earth has a story, all your places have nuances; if you say Cornwall to an English person, they think of smugglers, and King Arthur and fish. But there are great parts of my country about which American's know nothing beyond an idea of unimaginable vastness. Of course the Indians that live there know the spirits of these places, but that is not the point. You can't imagine how blue the sky is out West, Charlotte. So much space. It's really wild, not like your Lake District with its little stone walls. In the West the landscape is unmarked by man. #Quote by Daisy Goodwin
Wild Child quotes by Anne Fortier
#48. We are the Amazons" said Myrina."We are the killers of beasts and men. Wild ourselves, we inhabit the wild places. Freedom courses in our blood, and death whispers at the tip of our arrows. We fear nothing, fear runs from us. Try to stop us, and you will feel our rage. #Quote by Anne Fortier
Wild Child quotes by Stephen Douglass

Throughout my life, the United States has been my favorite country, save and except for Canada, where I was born, raised, educated, and still live for six months each year. As a child growing up in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, I aggressively bought and saved baseball cards of American and National League players, spent hours watching snowy images of American baseball and football games on black and white television and longed for the day when I could travel to that great country. Every Saturday afternoon, me and the boys would pay twelve cents to go the show and watch U.S. made movies, and particularly, the Superman serial. Then I got my chance. My father, who worked for B.F. Goodrich, took my brother and me to watch the Cleveland Indians play baseball in the Mistake on the Lake in Cleveland. At last I had made it to the big time. I thought it was an amazing stadium and it was certainly not a mistake. Amazingly, the Americans thought we were Americans.

I loved the United States, and everything about the country: its people, its movies, its comic books, its sports, and a great deal more. The country was alive and growing. No, exploding. It was the golden age of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The American dream was alive and well, but demanded hard work, honesty, and frugality. Everyone understood that. Even the politicians.

Then everything changed.

Partly because of its proximity to #Quote by Stephen Douglass
Wild Child quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#50. You're either part of the problem or part of the solution. There are no bystanders who get to claim no impact. What mark will you leave on this world? #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Wild Child quotes by Walt Disney
#51. I don't like formal gardens. I like wild nature. It's just the wilderness instinct in me, I guess. #Quote by Walt Disney
Wild Child quotes by Brooke Burke
#52. I think it's such a blessing to be able to have a child, and good and bad, whatever you go through, it's so worth it, and it's such an unbelievable time - you have someone growing inside of you! #Quote by Brooke Burke
Wild Child quotes by Fredrik Backman
#53. She doesn't know why, but she's thinking a lot about her parents this summer. When you're a teenager, you want them to be sexless, but somewhere along the way the smallest memories of affection between our parents get imprinted on our DNA. Parents who divorce, like Ana's, can stop a child believing in eternal love. Parents who stick together for a lifetime can make a child take it for granted instead. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Wild Child quotes by Peter Farb
#54. No child is capable of speech until he has heard other human beings speak, and even two infants reared together cannot develop a language from scratch. #Quote by Peter Farb
Wild Child quotes by Amy Carmichael
#55. Sometimes in Dohnavur we, who dearly love the little children about us (and the older ones too), have looked up from some engrossing work to see a child beside us, waiting quietly. And when, with a welcoming hand held out, to the Tamil "I have come," we have asked "For what?" thinking, perhaps, of something to be confessed, or wanted, the answer has come back, "Just to love you." So do we come, Lord Jesus; we have no service to offer now; we do not come to ask for anything not even for guidance. We come just to love Thee. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Wild Child quotes by Donika Kelly
#56. I have never known a field as wild
as your heart.

Wild Child quotes by Josephine Akhagbeme
#57. Every human, is capable of animalistic behavior. But for God, human abode will be a wild desert with untamed animals #Quote by Josephine Akhagbeme
Wild Child quotes by Rafael Cruz
#58. How many times did we hear [Barack] Obama say, 'You didn't build that. You didn't build that - no, you need government.' We even saw Hillary Clinton say - remember her phrase - 'It takes a village to raise a child.' In other words, your children are not your children - they belong to the community. #Quote by Rafael Cruz
Wild Child quotes by Robin Hobb
#59. There are other types of neglect and deprivation. To deny what unfolds inside someone, to forbid the magic that comes unbidden, to impose ignorance in a way that invites danger, to say to a child, 'You must not be what you are.' That is wrong." His voice was gentle but the condemnation was without compassion. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Wild Child quotes by Anonymous
#60. The white moon above the clearing coldly illuminates the still tableaux of our embracements. How sweet I roamed, or, rather, used to roam; once I was the perfect child of the meadows of summer, but then the year turned, the light clarified and I saw the gaunt Erl-King, tall as a tree with birds in its branches, and he drew me towards him on his magic lasso of inhuman music. #Quote by Anonymous
Wild Child quotes by Laura Bates
#61. Kevin, the only prisoner in the group who was not serving a murder sentence, summed it up by saying, "What a child experiences between the ages of seven and ten will determine his actions as a teenager and an adult. #Quote by Laura Bates
Wild Child quotes by Gleeson White
#62. To delight a child, to add a new joy to the crowded miracles of childhood, is no less worth doing than to leave a Sistine Chapel to astound a somewhat bored procession of tourists; or to have written a classic that sells by the thousands and is possessed unread by all save an infinitesimal percentage of its owners. It is, then, not an ignoble thing to do one's very best to give our coming rulers – children – a taste of the Kingdom of Art. #Quote by Gleeson White
Wild Child quotes by Bob Keeshan
#63. Back in the old days, when I was a child, we sat around the family table at dinner time and exchanged our daily experiences. It wasn't very organized, but everyone was recognized and all the news that had to be told was told by each family member. We listened to each other and the interest was not put on; it was real. #Quote by Bob Keeshan
Wild Child quotes by Helo Matzelle
#64. God, why do You love me?"
"God, when do You love me?"
"How do You love me?"
"God, am I good enough for You?"
"God, when will I get to see You?"
"Then I will know You here, and in Heaven?"
"I love you, God."
He always replies,

Wild Child quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#65. But love, child, love is the root of all that is good, and the root of all things that are evil. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Wild Child quotes by Zadie Smith
#66. People talk about the happy quiet that can exist between two loves, but this, too, was great; sitting between his sister and his brother, saying nothing, eating. Before the world existed, before it was populated, and before there were wars and jobs and colleges and movies and clothes and opinions and foreign travel
before all of these things there had been only one person, Zora, and only one place: a tent in the living room made from chairs and bed-sheets. After a few years, Levi arrived; space was made for him; it was as if he had always been. Looking at them both now, Jerome found himself in their finger joints and neat conch ears, in their long legs and wild curls. He heard himself in their partial lisps caused by puffy tongues vibrating against slightly noticeable buckteeth. He did not consider if or how or why he loved them. They were just love: they were the first evidence he ever had of love, and they would be the last confirmation of love when everything else fell away. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Wild Child quotes by Karen Karbo
#67. Once in a great while, she was distressed by the way she looked. As she was rounding the bend to forty she would write to Avis DeVoto that whenever she read Vogue she "felt like a frump....but I suppose that is the purpose of all of it, to shame people out of their frumpery so they will go out and buy 48 pairs of red shoes, have a facial, pat themselves with deodorizers, buy a freezer, and put up the new crispy window curtains with a draped valence."
Julia was able to deconstruct the disingenuous motives that drive women's magazines with the ease she normally reserved for deboning a duck, seeing quite clearly that while ostensibly offering inspiration and useful advice, the stories and articles quietly pummel the reader's sense of self, the better to drive her into the arms of the advertisers. #Quote by Karen Karbo
Wild Child quotes by Arjun Rampal
#68. As a child, I had no idea that I would end up in the film industry. My ambitions changed from wanting to join the army like my grandfather to taking up merchant navy as a career to running for India, and finally, investment banking while I was a student of economics honour. But during my college days, I began to get offers for modelling. #Quote by Arjun Rampal
Wild Child quotes by Ezekiel Emanuel
#69. There's nothing to be gained, and much to be lost, in trying to bend every child to match a one-size-fits-all notion of what it means to be a boy or girl of a specific age. Better to set a few parameters and then go with the flow. Call it 'jazz parenting.' #Quote by Ezekiel Emanuel
Wild Child quotes by J.R. Ward
#70. Lassiter had been the wild card, and he had not lasted. Distracted by physical yearnings, he had gotten into epic trouble and been banished, lost to a destiny and destination of which Colin was only vaguely aware. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Wild Child quotes by Jonathan Van Ness
#71. It wasn't until I had lost everything I thought I wanted that I realized being an adult wasn't about being 'normal,' or having a life that seems enviable to people from the outside. Being a fulfilled and successful adult has required accepting that I do have an inner child who was hurt and traumatized. It's my job as an adult to nurture him, alongside all the other parts of me that make me who I am. #Quote by Jonathan Van Ness
Wild Child quotes by David Almond
#72. It was great to see the owls," I said.
She smiled.
"Yes. They're wild things, of course. Killers, savages. They're wonderful. #Quote by David Almond
Wild Child quotes by Marianne Williamson
#73. Until we heal the child we used to be, the adult we want to becdoesn't stand a chance. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Wild Child quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#74. And as for that strangeness in your gut, that comes from you, not the Lord. When you were a child you had worms. As likely as not you have them again. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Wild Child quotes by Jessye Norman
#75. I feel comfortable singing in the great cathedrals of the world because I spent so much time as a child singing in church. And it isn't very different. Of course, nothing looks quite like Notre Dame de Paris. #Quote by Jessye Norman
Wild Child quotes by Veronica Blake
#76. Together? " Rose asked. "Are we -- together ?"

He took one of her hands--it seemed so small and fragile in his own large, rough hand. Her porcelain skin looked even paler against his.

" Ever since I first laid eyes on you, I knew that I had to make you my woman , It was a feeling that was stronger than anything I have ever known before, and I am a man who goes after what he wants." He pulled her close to him and let his gaze meet hers, as he added, " And, my Wild Rose , I want you. #Quote by Veronica Blake
Wild Child quotes by Flora Sandes
#77. Cruelty is absolutely foreign to their natures.Some people once talked of setting up a branch of the " Prevention of Cruelty to Animals" in Serbia, and were asked in astonishment what work they supposed they would find to do ; who ever heard of a Serbian being cruel to child or animal? #Quote by Flora Sandes
Wild Child quotes by John Hall Wheelock
#78. A child, when it begins to speak, learns what it is that it knows. #Quote by John Hall Wheelock
Wild Child quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#79. Revenge was a very wild kind of justice ... #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Wild Child quotes by Lilian Katz
#80. As you consider whether to move a child into formal academic training, remember that we want our children to do more than just learn how to read and write; we want them to learn in such a way that they become lifelong readers and writers. If we push our children to start learning these skills too far ahead of their own spontaneous interest and their capacity, we may sacrifice the long-range goal of having them enjoy such pursuits. #Quote by Lilian Katz
Wild Child quotes by Tessa Dare
#81. Don't look so stunned," she teased. "I want you, Bram. So much. All the time. When it comes to you, this buttoned-up spinster is just seething with wild, insatiable passion." She kissed him, teasing her tongue over his lips. "It should hardly come as any surprise. You've been telling me so since the very beginning."
"I know," he said wonderingly. "I know. The surprise is that you listened." He cradled her neck in one hand and claimed her mouth in a deep, masterful kiss.

#82. It interests me that there is no end of fictions, and facts made over in the forms of fictions. Because we class them under so many different rubrics, and media, and means of delivery, we don't recognize the sheer proliferation and seamlessness of them. I think at some level of scale or perspective, the police drama in which a criminal is shot, the hospital in which the doctors massage a heart back to life, the news video in which jihadists behead a hostage, and the human-interest story of a child who gets his fondest wish (a tourist trip somewhere) become the same sorts of drama. They are representations of strong experience, which, as they multiply, began to dedifferentiate in our uptake of them, despite our names and categories and distinctions...

I say I watch the news to "know". But I don't really know anything. Certainly I can't do anything. I know that there is a war in Iraq, but I knew that already. I know that there are fires and car accidents in my state and in my country, but that, too, I knew already. With each particular piece of footage, I know nothing more than I did before. I feel something, or I don't feel something. One way I am likely to feel is virtuous and "responsible" for knowing more of these things that I can do nothing about. Surely this feeling is wrong, even contemptible. I am not sure anymore what I feel.

What is it like to watch a human being's beheading? The first showing of the video is bad. The second, fifth, tenth, hundr #Quote by Mark Greif
Wild Child quotes by Adrienne Kress
#83. we as authors have been writing about people we aren't for forever. We find a way to empathise, we find a way in. Female characters are no different. All they are are characters. They are people too. Instead of asking yourself, "How do I write this female soldier?" ask yourself, "How do I write this soldier? Where is she from, how was she raised, does she have a sense of humour? Is she big and tall, is she short and petite? How does her size affect her ability to fight? What is her favourite weapon, her least favourite? Why? Is she more logical than emotional? The other way around? Was she an only child and spoiled, was she the eldest of six siblings and a surrogate mother? How does that upbringing affect how she interacts with her team? etc etc and so forth." Notice how the first question gets you some kind of broad, generalised answer, likely resulting in a stereotype, and how the second version asks lots and lots of smaller questions with the goal of creating someone well rounded.

One would hope, really, that we as authors ask such detailed questions of all our characters, regardless of gender.

So let me, at long last, actually answer the original question:

"How do I write a female character?"

Write her the way you would write any other character. Give her dimension, give her strength but please also don't forget to give her weaknesses (for a totally strong nothing can beat her kind of girl is not a person, she's again a ty #Quote by Adrienne Kress
