Michelle Valois

After Emily Dickinson

You won't lose your hair, I heard at the start of treatment, and though I didn't, I lost a litany of other lesser and greater luxuries - saliva, stamina, taste buds, my voice - but my hair, during that chilly sojourn in the land of extremity to which I had sailed on a strange and stormy sea, my hair was not taken from me.

Had it been, I would have perched one of those 18th century wigs on my head, such as those worn by the French aristocracy, measuring three, four, even five feet high and stuffed, as they were known to be, with all sorts of things: ribbons, pearls, jewels, flowers, tunes without words, reproductions of great sailing vessels, my soul inside a little bird cage - ornaments selected to satisfy a theme: the signs of the Zodiac (à la Zodiaque) or the discovery of a new vaccine (à l'inoculation) or, as was the case in June of 1782, the first successful hot air balloon flight by the brothers Michel and Etienne Montgolfier.

Regarde, I exclaim to my ladies in waiting, pointing to the sky on that bright afternoon as the balloon, made of linen and paper, rises some 6,000 feet. Later, a duck, then a sheep, and finally a human is carried away. I watch, inspired, hopeful, whispering, lest my doctors overhear: when the storm turns sore, and that little bird escapes her little bird cage and is abashed without reckoning, I will sail away in my balloon, prepared, ~ Michelle Valois
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Michelle Valois
To talk about photos rather than making them seems idiotic to me. It's as though I went on and on about a woman I adored instead of making love to her. ~ Jacques-Henri Lartigue
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques-Henri Lartigue
And cranky old Jacques Derrida notwithstanding, we do love our dichotomies. ~ Thomas King
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Thomas King
The end of man is God, an end obviously exceeding the limits of reason. Yet man should have some knowledge of his end in order to regulate and order his intentions and actions towards that end. The salvation of man, therefore, demands that divine revelation should make him know a certain number of truths quite beyond the grasp of his reason.43 In other words, since man requires knowledge of the infinite God, who is his end, and since such knowledge exceeds the limits of his reason, he simply must get it by way of faith. Nor does such faith do violence to our reason. Rather, faith in the incomprehensible confers on rational knowledge its perfection and consummation. ~ Etienne Gilson
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Etienne Gilson
Inside me there was everything I had believed was outside. There was, in particular, the sun, light, and all colors. There were even the shapes of objects and the distance between objects. Everything was there and movement as well ... Light is an element that we carry inside us and which can grow there with as much abundance, variety, and intensity as it can outside of us ... I could light myself ... that is, I could create a light inside of me so alive, so large, and so near that my eyes, my physical eyes, or what remained of them, vibrated, almost to the point of hurting ... God is there under a form that has the good luck to be neither religious, not intellectual, nor sentimental, but quite simply alive. ~ Jacques Lusseyran
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Lusseyran
I describe a world with no exit, convinced that God accompanies man throughout his history . ~ Jacques Ellul
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Ellul
A vertical battled pitted the Italians against the Austrians, who were starving up in the mountains.
The Italians also sent men to the firing squad "to set an example". I couldn't make up my mind which was more appalling: the mining war or the mountain war. And between an Italian general and a French one, I wouldn't've known which one to shoot first. ~ Jacques Tardi
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Tardi
My love", she whispered, so low she sounded to Jacques as if she were speaking from the bottom of an abyss, "now we shall belong to each other in a strange country that you do not know. It is the country of madmen but not the country of brutes. I am taking away your vulgar senses and giving you others more refined. ~ Rachilde
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Rachilde
I had learned in the last two years that the more demanding the basic needs of self-preservation grow, the closer one comes to nature. ~ Jacques Sandulescu
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Sandulescu
The master always keeps a piece of learning
that is to say, a piece of the student's ignorance
up his sleeve. I understood that, says the satisfied student. You think so, corrects the master. in fact, there's a difficulty here that I've been sparing you until now. We will explain it when we get to the corresponding lesson. What does this mean? asks the curious student. I could tell you, responds the master, but it would be premature: you wouldn't understand at all. It will be explained to you next year. The master is always a length ahead of the student, who always feels that in order to go farther he must have another master, supplementary explications. Thus does the triumphant Achilles drag Hector's corpse, attached to his chariot, around the city of Troy. ~ Jacques Ranciere
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Ranciere
Western humanism has religious and transcendent sources without which it is incomprehensible to itself. ~ Jacques Maritain
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Maritain
Literature is the daughter of heaven, who descended upon earth to soften and charm all human ills. ~ Jacques-Henri Bernardin De Saint-Pierre
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques-Henri Bernardin De Saint-Pierre
God loved birds and created trees. Man loved birds and made cages. ~ Jacques Deval
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Deval
Liberty is obedience to the law which one has laid down for oneself ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
The wisest writers devote themselves to what a man ought to know, without asking what a child is capable of learning. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
To discover the rules of society that are best suited to nations, there would need to exist a superior intelligence, who could understand the passions of men without feeling any of them, who had no affinity with our nature but knew it to the full, whose happiness was independent of ours, but who would nevertheless make our happiness his concern, who would be content to wait in the fullness of time for a distant glory, and to labour in one age to enjoy the fruits in another. Gods would be needed to give men laws. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Then everything is clear," Reynold said, looking around triumphantly at the crowd. "Jacques Cherbourg did not drown, he survived. He went to England, lived there a while, made a girl pregnant, and died. The girl gave birth to a boy and named him after the father. Jack here is now twenty, and looks exactly like his father did twenty-four years ago." Reynold looked at the priest. "No need for exorcism here, father. It's just a family reunion. ~ Ken Follett
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Ken Follett
Jean Jacques Rousseauis nothing but a fool in my eyes when he takes it upon himself to criticise society; he did not understand it, and approached it with the heart of an upstart flunkey ... For all his preaching a Republic and the overthrow of monarchical titles, the upstart is mad with joy if a Duke alters the course of his after-dinner stroll to accompany one of his friends. ~ Stendhal
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Stendhal
Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us. ~ Brian Jacques
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Brian Jacques
When Europe dominated, there were no or few feedback loops. Or, to put it another way, there were few, if any, consequences for its behaviour towards the non-western world: relations were simply too unequal. ~ Martin Jacques
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Martin Jacques
The social pact, far from destroying natural equality, substitutes, on the contrary, a moral and lawful equality for whatever physical inequality that nature may have imposed on mankind; so that however unequal in strength and intelligence, men become equal by covenant and by right. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
The more ingenious our apparatus, the coarser and more unskillful are our senses. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Childhood has its own way of seeing, thinking, and feeling, and nothing is more foolish than to try to substitute ours for theirs. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Reducing hunger should become the driving force for progress and hope ~ Jacques Diouf
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Diouf
The boarding-school experience in Paris was very hard, I didn't put up with it very well. I was sick all the time, or in any case frail, on the edge of a nervous breakdown. ~ Jacques Derrida
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Derrida
Monsters cannot be announced. One cannot say: 'Here are our monsters,' without immediately turning the monsters into pets. ~ Jacques Derrida
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Derrida
Everyone's here except for St. Clair." Meredith cranes her neck around the cafeteria. "He's usually running late."
"Always," Josh corrects. "Always running late."
I clear my throat. "I think I met him last night. In the hallway."
"Good hair and an English accent?" Meredith asks.
"Um.Yeah.I guess." I try to keep my voice casual.
Josh smirks. "Everyone's in luuurve with St. Clair."
"Oh,shut up," Meredith says.
"I'm not." Rashmi looks at me for the first time, calculating whether or not I might fall in love with her own boyfriend.
He lets go of her hand and gives an exaggerated sigh. "Well,I am. I'm asking him to prom. This is our year, I just know it."
"This school has a prom?" I ask.
"God no," Rashmi says. "Yeah,Josh. You and St. Clair would look really cute in matching tuxes."
"Tails." The English accent makes Meredith and me jump in our seats. Hallway boy. Beautiful boy. His hair is damp from the rain. "I insist the tuxes have tails, or I'm giving your corsage to Steve Carver instead."
"St. Clair!" Josh springs from his seat, and they give each other the classic two-thumps-on-the-back guy hug.
"No kiss? I'm crushed,mate."
"Thought it might miff the ol' ball and chain. She doesn't know about us yet."
"Whatever," Rashi says,but she's smiling now. It's a good look for her. She should utilize the corners of her mouth more often.
Beautiful Hallway Boy (Am I supposed to call him Etienne or St. Clair?) ~ Stephanie Perkins
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Stephanie Perkins
The Ethical can therefore end up making us irresponsible. ~ Jacques Derrida
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Derrida
All sorts of things in this world behave like mirrors. ~ Jacques Lacan
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jacques Lacan
What conclusion is to be drawn from this paradox so worthy of being born in our time; and what will become of virtue when one has to get rich at all cost?
The ancient political thinkers forever spoke of morals and of virtue; ours speak only of commerce and money. ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
I love book signings: kids waiting in line for you to scribble on their new books, haha! ~ Brian Jacques
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Brian Jacques
Through the open doorway suddenly stepped a small woman, long ebony hair braided intricately, huge blue eyes flashing at Mikhail. As Byron shouldered his way inside behind her, she gave him a friendly smile and stood on her toes to brush his chin with a kiss.
Mikhail stiffened, then immediately wrapped a possessive arm around her waist. "Carpathian women do not do that kind of thing," he reprimanded her.
She tilted her chin at him, in no way intimidated. "That's because Carpathian males have such a territorial mentality - you know, a beat-their-chest, swing-from-the-trees sort of thing." She turned her head to look at the couple lying on the floor. Her indrawn breath was audible.
"Jacques." She whispered his name, tears in her voice and in her blue eyes. "It really is you." Eluding Mikhail's outstretched, detaining hand, she ran to him.
Let her, Gregori persuaded softly. Look at him.
Jacques' gaze was fastened on the woman's face, the red flames receding from his eyes as she approached.
"I'm Raven, Jacques. Don't you remember me? Mikhail, your brother, is my lifemate." Raven dropped to her knees beside the couple. "Thank God you're alive. I can't believe how lucky we are. Who did this to you? Who took you from us?"
Shea felt the ripple of awareness in her mind. Jacques' shock. His curiosity. He recognized those tear-filled blue eyes. Shea caught a glimpse, a fragment of memory, the woman bending over him, her hands clamped to his thr ~ Christine Feehan
Jacques Etienne Montgolfier quotes by Christine Feehan
Under water, man becomes an archangel. ~ Jacques-Yves Cousteau
