Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#3. It is about moving from ideas about merely being sustainable to ones that include regenerating areas devastated by agriculture, mining, and other destructive activities. It is about revolution.

Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#8. Josh and Rashmi are making out-I can actually see tongue-so I turn to my bread and grapes.How biblical of me.
The grapes are smaller than I'm used to, and the skin is slightly textured. Is that dirt? I dip my napkin in water and dab at the tiny purple globes. It helps, but they're still sort of rough. Hmm. St. Clair and Meredith stop talking. I glance up to find them staring at me in matching bemusement. "What?"
"Nothing," he says. "Continue your grape bath."
"They were dirty."
"Have you tried one?" she asks.
"No,they've still got these little mud flecks." I hold one up to show them. St. Clair plucks it from my fingers and pops it into his mouth.I'm hypnotized by his lips, his throat, as he swallows.
I hesitate. Would I rather have clean food or his good opinion?
He picks up another and smiles. "Open up."
I open up.
The grape brushes my lower lip as he slides it in. It explodes in my mouth, and I'm so startled by the juice that I nearly spit it out. The flavor is intense, more like grape candy than actual fruit. To say I've tasted nothing like it before is an understatement. Meredith and St. Clair laugh. "Wait until you try them as wine," she says.
St. Clair twirls a forkful of pasta. "So. How was French class?"
The abrupt subject change makes me shudder. "Professeur Gillet is scary. She's all frown lines." I tear off a piece of baguette. The crust crackles, and the inside is light and springy. Oh,man. I shove another hun - Author: Stephanie Perkins

Kasandra Perkins quotes by Kathleen Rose Perkins
#10. I don't care what he thinks. Only what you think." He holds me tighter. "Like if you think I need to stop biting my nails."
"You've worn your pinkies to nubs," I say cheerfully.
"Or if I need to start ironing my bed spread."
"I DO NOT IRON MY BED SPREAD."
"You do. And I love it. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#11. Will you please tell me you love me? I'm dying here. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#12. It cannot be too strongly asserted that the insistence on blind, unreasoning faith is due mainly to the maintenance of a subject-matter upon which there was no knowledge, namely the 'other world'; and that this basis was assumed because of early man's preoccupation with death. It is, unfortunately, quite possible to believe a thing which is contradicted by facts, especially if the facts are not generally known; but if the whole position on which we rested our religions had been visibly opposed by what we did know, even the unthinking masses would, in time, have noticed it. - Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#13. So what happened?"
"I don't know." Another glance to ensure his continued state of Not Looking, and then I rip off my clothes in one fast swoop. I am now officially stark naked in the room with the most beautiful boy I know. Funny,but this isn't how I imagined this moment.
No.Not funny.One hundred percent the exact opposite of funny.
"I think I maybe,possibly, vaguely remember hitting the snooze button." I jabber to cover my mortification. "Only I guess it was the off button.But I had the alarm on my phone set,too, so I don't know what happened."
Underwear,on.
"Did you turn the ringer back on last night?"
"What?" I hop into my jeans, a noise he seems to determinedly ignore.His ears are apple red.
"You went to see a film,right? Don't you set your mobile to silent at the theater?"
He's right.I'm so stupid. If I hadn't taken Meredith to A Hard Day's Night, a Beatles movie I know she loves, I would have never turned it off. We'd already be in a taxi to the airport. "The taxi!" I tug my sweater over my head and look up to find myself standing across from a mirror.
A mirror St. Clair is facing.
"It's all right," he says. "I told the driver to wait when I came up here. We'll just have to tip him a little extra." His head is still down. I don't think he saw anything.I clear my throat, and he glances up. Our eyes meet in the mirror,and he jumps. "God! I didn't...I mean,not until just now..."
"Cool.Yeah,fine." I try to shake it off - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#14. We have built into the constitution of the human race the habit and desire of taking, as divorced from its natural precursor and concomitant of making. - Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#15. Phones are distracting. The internet is distracting.The way he looked at you? He wasn't distracted. He was consumed. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#16. You've built up this idea about me, this ideal, but I'm not that person. I'm not perfect. I am far from perfect. I'm not worth such a beautiful story. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#17. The quality of his being one with the people, of having no artificial or natural barriers between him and them, made it possible for him to be a leader without ever being or thinking of being a dictator. - Author: Frances Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Frances Perkins
#18. The first thing I notice is his hair - it's the first thing I notice about anyone. It's dark brown and messy and somehow both long and short at the same time. I think of the Beatles, since I've just seen them in Meredith's room. It's artist's hair. Musician hair. I-pretend-I-don't-care-but-I-really-do hair. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#19. [Warfare is] maleness in its absurdest extremes. Here is to be studied the whole gamut of basic masculinity, from the initial instinct of combat, through every form of glorious ostentation, with the loudest accompaniment of noise. - Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#20. If you were my girl," he says, but there's an explosion outside in the courtyard, and I miss the punchline. Fireworks crackle in showers of pink, green, blue, white, green, pink, orange. The museum-goers on the escalators heading upwards erupt in a frenzy of applause as we continue heading down. "If you were my girl," Josh says, pressing his nose against my ear. I turn my head, and the lights and the noise and the people disappear. The distance between us disappears.
Our kiss was anything but shy. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#21. You know that because you asked me out, you're the one who has to pick the place, right?"
Throat. Dry.
Dry throat.
All of the dryness in my throat.
"Whatever you suggest." He grins. "I'll say yes. You'll definitely get a yes. If that helps. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#22. California is a state peculiarly addicted to swift enthusiasms. It is a seed-bed of all manner of cults and theories, taken up, and dropped, with equal speed. - Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#23. «"We're talking about the technical aspects of translation again. Do I have to do all the work here? Who can tell me one of the problems translators face?" Rashmi raises her hand. "Well, most words have different meanings." "Good," Professeur Cole says. "More. Elaborate." St. Clair sits next to Rashmi, but he's not listening. He scribbles something fiercely in the margins of his book. "Well," Rashmi says. "It's the translator's job to determine which definition the author means. And not only that, but there could be other meanings in relation to the context."55 "So what you're saying," Professeur Cole says, "is that the translator has a lot of decisions to make. That there are multiple meanings to be found in any word, in any sentence. In any situation." "Exactly," Rashmi says. And then she cuts her eyes at me.» - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#24. Whatever her name was, she was pretty. She had a thick, careless braid of chestnut hair, a quick smile, and dark, merry eyes. She wore some kind of a fuzzy lavender pullover, and when she crossed her legs and lifted her guitar onto her lap, she had an interesting way of tucking the foot of the bottom leg back under her chair that made Hector feel melty. He looked away in self-preservation. - Author: Lynne Rae Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Lynne Rae Perkins
#25. Imagine," she said, after registering, "a whole city of gorgeous Italian guys. They can say anything to me, and it'll be sexy."
"You'll be so easy," Rashmi said. "Would you like-ah to order-ah the spa-ghe-tti? 'Oh, do me, Marco! - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#26. The key is to take a larger project or goal and break it down into smaller problems to be solved, constraining the scope of work to solving a key problem, and then another key problem.
This strategy, of breaking a project down into discrete, relatively small problems to be resolved, is what Bing Gordon, a cofounder and the former chief creative officer of the video game company Electronic Arts, calls smallifying. Now a partner at the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, Gordon has deep experience leading and working with software development teams. He's also currently on the board of directors of Amazon and Zynga. At Electronic Arts, Gordon found that when software teams worked on longer-term projects, they were inefficient and took unnecessary paths. However, when job tasks were broken down into particular problems to be solved, which were manageable and could be tackled within one or two weeks, developers were more creative and effective. - Author: Peter Sims
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Peter Sims
#27. Finally, I laugh. Genuine and normal sounding. And then my date says the best thing that he could
possibly say: "It's okay. I haven't been on one of these [dates] in a while either."
My smile triples in size.
Josh grins. "Just give me your hand."
"W–what?"
"Your hand," he repeats. "Give it to me."
I extend my shaking right hand. And – in a moment that is a hundred dreams come true – Joshua
Wasserstein laces his fingers through mine. A staggering shock of energy shoots straight into my
veins. Straight into my heart.
"There," he says. "I've been waiting a long time to do that. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#28. When you're asleep, no one asks you to do anything. No one expects anything of you. And you don't have to face any of your troubles. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#29. We honor them for their functional powers, even while we dishonor them by our use of it; we honor them for their carefully enforced virtue, even while we show by our own conduct how little we think of that virtue; we value them, sincerely, for the perverted maternal activities which make our wives the most comfortable of servants, bound to us for life with the wages wholly at our own decision, their whole business, outside of the temporary duties of such motherhood as they may achieve, to meet our needs in every way. - Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#30. Even his hair seemed more startled than usual. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#31. it is only in social relations that we are human...to be human women must share in the totality of humanity's common life. Women, forced to lead restricted lives, retard all human progress. Growth of organism, the individual or social body requires use of all of our powers in four areas: physical, intellectual, spiritual and social - Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Kasandra Perkins quotes by Pinetop Perkins
#33. I moan with pleasure.
"Did you just have a foodgasm?" he asks, wiping ricotta from his lips.

Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#35. a good orgasm is definitely what the doctor ordered after the past few weeks. - Author: Crystal Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Crystal Perkins
#36. Conscience is strong in women. Children are very violently taught that they owe all to their parents, and the parents are not slow in foreclosing the mortgage. But the home is not a debtor's prison - to girls any more than to boys. This enormous claim of parents calls for extermination. Do they in truth do all for their children; do their children owe all to them? Is nothing furnished in the way of safety, sanitation, education, by that larger home, the state? What could these parents do, alone, in never so pleasant a home, without the allied forces of society to maintain that home in peace and prosperity. These lingering vestiges of a patriarchal cult must be left behind. Ancestor-worship has had victims enough. Girls are human creatures as well as boys, and both have duties, imperative duties, quite outside the home. - Author: Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#37. Do adults realize how lucky they are? Or do they forget that these small moments are actually small miracles? I don't want to ever forget. - Author: Stephanie Perkins
Kasandra Perkins quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#38. As for us,Etienne was right.Our schools are only a twenty-minute transit ride away.He'll stay with me on the weekends, and we'll visit each other as often as possible during the week. We'll be together.We both got our Point Zero wishes-each other.He said he wished for me every time.He was wishing for me when I entered the tower.
"Mmm," I say.He's kissing my neck.
"That's it," Rashmi says. "I'm outta here.Enjoy your hormones."
Josh and Mer follow her exit,and we're alone.Just the way I like it.
"Ha!" Ettiene says. "Just the way I like it."
He pulls me onto his lap,and I wrap my legs around his waist.His lips are velvet soft,and we kiss until the streetlamps flicker on outside. Until the opera singer begins her evening routine. "I'm going to miss her," I say.
"I'll sing to you." He tucks my stripe behind my ear. "Or I'll take you to the opera.Or I'll fly you back here to visit. Whatever you want.Anything you want."
I lace my fingers through his. "I want to stay right here,in this moment."
"Isn't that the name of the latest James Ashley bestseller? In This Moment?"
"Careful.Someday you'll meet him, and he won't be nearly as amusing in person."
Etienne grins. "Oh,so he'll only be mildly amusing? I suppose I can handle mildly amusing."
"I'm serious! You have to promise me right now,this instant,that you won't leave me once you meet him.Most people would run."
"I'm not most people."
I smile. "I know.But you still have - Author: Stephanie Perkins
