#1. I want to yell so loud that Baby Girl can hear me that dirty ain't a color, disease ain't the Negro side a town.

I pray that wasn't her moment, Pray I still got time. - Author: Kathryn Stockett
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#2. We never know the battles others are facing. We don't know the demons they are hiding. Everyone you have ever met is fighting something. You may have thought no one could've had the kind of raw deal you were dealt in life, being ailed with a mental illness, yet the truth is, many have the same or worse problems than that of your own. - Author: Kathryn Perez

Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#8. I'm pretty sure I can say that no one in my family ever asked Demetrie what it felt like to be black in Mississippi, working for our white family. It never occurred to us to ask. It was everyday life. It wasn't something people felt compelled to examine.
I have wished, for many years, that I'd been old enough and thoughtful enough to ask Demetrie that question. She died when I was sixteen. I've spent years imagining what her answer would be. And that is why I wrote this book. - Author: Kathryn Stockett
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#9. Demetrie came to wait on my grandmother in 1955 and stayed for 32 years. It was common, in Mississippi, to have a black domestic cleaning the kitchen, cooking the meals, looking after the white children. - Author: Kathryn Stockett
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#10. I'm always sorry to finish a book, to let go of characters I love, people I've struggled to understand for years, people who evolve before me. - Author: Kathryn Harrison
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Harrison
#11. I was pretending, the way I often did, pretending to have a personality. I can't help it, it's what I've always done: The way some women change fashion regularly, I change personalities. What persona feels good, what's coveted, what's au courant? I think most people do this, they just don't admit it, or else they settle on one persona because they are too lazy or stupid to pull a switch. - Author: Gillian Flynn
Kathryn Au quotes by Gillian Flynn
#12. Much-derided chick lit, chick flicks, and chick magazines have left ambitious women in a bind. Why is it that I, a young woman, can read 'GQ,' enjoy 'Fight Club,' and subscribe to 'Thrillist,' while the idea of a guy doing the same with 'Glamour,' '27 Dresses' and 'Daily Candy' is nearly unheard of? - Author: Kathryn Minshew
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Minshew
#13. I slip off my flats and walk down the front porch steps, while Mother calls out for me to put my shoes back on, threatening ringworm, mosquito, encephalitis. The inevitability of death by no shoes. Death by no husband. - Author: Kathryn Stockett
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#14. Believe that sometimes choices in life aren't always what we WANT. But sometimes, they're what we NEED - Author: Kathryn Le Veque
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Le Veque
#15. And I know there are plenty of other "colored" things I could do besides telling my stories or going to Shirley Boon's meetings- the mass meetings in town, the marches in Birmingham, the voting rallies upstate. But truth is, I don't care that much about voting. I don't care about eating at a counter with white people. What I care about is, if in ten years, a white lady will call my girls dirty and accuse them of stealing the silver. - Author: Kathryn Stockett
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Stockett
#16. My awesome career has been nothing but chaos. Whatever comes toward me feels like the right thing to do in the moment and that's great. - Author: Kathryn Hahn
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Hahn

#21. The Beje is now a museum (above an actual watch shop), and visitors can see the secret room where the ten Booms once hid Jews. - Author: Kathryn J. Atwood
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn J. Atwood
#22. You are, inarguably, one of the finest officers who has ever worn the uniform. You eat the impossible for breakfast. You seek out challenges most would never contemplate, holding yourself to ridiculously high standards, and you do it with a ready smile, keen wit, formidable intelligence, and a compassionate heart. You are a bloody beacon in the darkness, an inspiration to anyone dedicating their lives to Starfleet. To a man, those who have served with you in the past would walk naked through fire with you, but right now, I wouldn't follow you to the mess hall." (Hugh Cambridge to Kathryn Janeway). - Author: Kirsten Beyer
Kathryn Au quotes by Kirsten Beyer
#23. I'm perfect. We're all perfect. - Author: Kathryn Hahn

Kathryn Au quotes by Diablo Cody
#25. They waited. And waited. And waited some more. Still nothing happened. She turned to Evan and looped her arms round his neck. "I think we might have to kiss. Aurora started them [The Harps] playing with her human boyfriend. I bet hey didn't just hold hands."

Suddenly he looked just like the boys at school, impish and foxy. He out his arms tight around her neck. "Or maybe we have to do something more?"
She laughed. "You wish."
Their faces were inches apart. Little sparks of static were flashing and clicking between them.
"I want to kiss you, just in case," he said.
So he did, right there beneath the hard in the weird purple light, with their hair standing out like dandelion's. Her first true kiss. Strange. Soft. Sweet. And pretty painful because of the sparks that flew between their lips and zapped of their teeth.

And the next moment they were hugging and kissing and almost falling over, until they bumped up against the harp. And this time it didn't ripple beneath them, it gave way."

Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn James
#26. But my family is very affectionate so I suppose I grew up that way. When someone is hurt, friend or family, we comfort them." "I am hurt?" She nodded faintly, studying his handsome face. "I think your heart is hurt and you do not even know it. You have never known anything else." "Would you heal it? - Author: Kathryn Le Veque
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Le Veque
#27. I think we need to be put back in touch with our childhood ... to be reminded of what's important, like memories about people we loved, or things that happened to us that affected our lives, things we can laugh about and shed a few tears about ... I think storytelling is a way of saying 'I love you. I love you enough to tell you something that means a great deal to me.' - Author: Kathryn Tucker Windham
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Tucker Windham
#28. I believe that reading widely is the best preparation for writing. - Author: Kathryn Lasky
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Lasky
#29. Out of the blue, he kissed me. Right in the middle of the Robert E. Lee Hotel Restaurant, he kissed me so slowly with an open mouth and every single thing in my body-my skin, my collarbone, the hollow backs of my knees, everything inside of me filled up with light. - Author: Kathryn Stockett
Kathryn Au quotes by Kathryn Stockett
