Griffin And Helen quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#10. When things are serious and either Amy Eleni or I need to beat our personal hysteric, the informal code is to seize your head and twist coils of your hair around your fingers and groan, "I'm not mad! I'm not mad! I don't want to die!" And if you have a friend who knows, then the friend grabs her head too and replies, "There's someone inside of me, and she says I must die!" That way it is stupid, and funny, and serious.

Our hysteric is the revelation that we refuse to be consoled for all this noise, for all this noise and for the attacks on our softnesses, the loss of sensitivity to my scalp with every batch of box braids. Sometimes we cannot see or hear or breathe because of our fright that this is all our bodies will know. We're scared by the happy, hollow disciple that lines our brains and stomachs if we manage to stop after one biscuit. We need some kind of answer. We need to know what that biscuit-tin discipline is, where it comes from. We need to know whether it's a sign that our bones are turning against the rest of us, whether anyone will help us if our bones win out, or whether the people who should help us will say "You look wonderful!" instead. - Author: Helen Oyeyemi
Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#11. Appallingly, I hadn't thought about it one jot. I never daydreamed as a little girl of getting married and having children. I was as surprised to discover I was getting married as I was to discover I was up the duff. - Author: Helen McCrory
Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen McCrory
#12. I love London, and it's a privilege for my children to grow up here. - Author: Helen McCrory

#13. There's no such thing as too late. There are different roles for different ages, assuming an actress has something to offer. There aren't many Helen Mirrens and Meryl Steeps, and it takes a lot of talent to get to that level. I hope I have it. That's the model I aspire to if I'm lucky enough. It's all about luck. - Author: Ayelet Zurer
Griffin And Helen quotes by Ayelet Zurer
#14. We were in a great, seething moment in the 1970s. There was a new Labour government and everything seemed full of hope ... But, as we got older and we saw how much women's behaviour contributed to what was wrong, we stopped being able to see ourselves purely as. - Author: Helen Garner
Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Garner
#15. Why should I blame her that she filled my days
With misery, or that she would of late
Have taught to ignorant men most violent ways,
Or hurled the little streets upon the great,
Had they but courage equal to desire?
What could have made her peaceful with a mind
That nobleness made simple as a fire,
With beauty like a tightened bow, a kind
That is not natural in an age like this
Being high and solitary and most stern?
Why, what could she have done, being what she is?
Was there another Troy for her to burn? - Author: W.B.Yeats
Griffin And Helen quotes by W.B.Yeats

Through my own tears and sobs, I heard Matt lean down by Rachel at his side. "One of us should probably tell her that Grandma's name was Myrtle. - Author: S.C. Stephens
Griffin And Helen quotes by S.C. Stephens
#20. In the final analysis, it is not critics who create literary canons, it is other writers who create them ... A writer can have published thirty-seven volumes, but if that writer doesn't interest other writers, they will all molder in the library and nobody will ever want to read them again. - Author: Helen Vendler
Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Vendler
#21. At times we feel wounded, hurt, disappointed, disgusted, resentful, sick of it all. At other times we feel skeptical, outraged, robbed, beaten. We chafe, hate, overlook.

#22. Farewell, Timothy Riley's Bar," Lane said softly. "Home of the nickel beer. Snooker emporium. Repository of Bluebird records, three for a dime. We honor you and your passing. Farewell.

Rest in peace, you age of innocence - you beautiful, serene, carefree, pre-Pearl Harbor, long summer night. We'll never see your likes again. - Author: Rod Serling
Griffin And Helen quotes by Rod Serling
#23. HELEN: Life is complex and bewildering, isn't it? You meet someone. He's not spectacular, but he impresses you with his goodwill. You have a child. She's troublesome but kind of entertaining in her own loosey-goosey, head-up-her-ass way. For a time you all seem connected to the same life, on the same course. But after a while, not so much. And eventually not at all. And now, although most people would find it odd that we're trying to have each other killed, it actually seems to be a very natural thing. - Author: George F. Walker
Griffin And Helen quotes by George F. Walker
#24. I don't believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you're spending your time doing something worthwhile. - Author: Helen Mirren
Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Mirren

Griffin And Helen quotes by Robert Griffin III
#27. The few own the many because they possess the means of livelihood of all ... The country is governed for the richest, for the corporations, the bankers, the land speculators, and for the exploiters of labor. The majority of mankind are working people. So long as their fair demands - the ownership and control of their livelihoods - are set at naught, we can have neither men's rights nor women's rights. The majority of mankind is ground down by industrial oppression in order that the small remnant may live in ease. - Author: Helen Keller
Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Keller
#28. Life is short and unpredictable. Eat the dessert first! - Author: Helen Keller
Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Keller
#29. I often think it would be such a luxury to go mad, and not have to worry about anything. [ ... ] There would be some sort of doctor there to tell me: "Don't worry, Mary, it's just that you're mad. Now be quiet and take this pill." And I would think, So that's all is is, and I would be glad. But aloud I would say, "What? I'm perfectly sane! You're mad ... " Only mildly, though; just for show, really. - Author: Helen Oyeyemi
Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Oyeyemi

Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#33. In the absence of centralized decision-making, Hebrard's town plans for Indochina had no equivalent in France itself.

Griffin And Helen quotes by Helen Grant Ross
#34. In relations with people, as in art, if you always stick to style, manners, and what will work, and you're never caught off guard, then some beautiful experiences never happen. - Author: Helen Frankenthaler
