Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#10. My eyelids are heavy as stone. But when I sleep, I'll have that dream again. I haven't wanted to tell you about it, until now.
I'll be in the Separates, and I'll be digging with my bare hands. When I've made a hole deep enough to plant a tree, I'll place my fingers inside. I'll slip off the ring you gave me. It will catch the light and glint a rainbow of colors over my skin, but I will take my hands away, leaving it there. I'll sprinkle the earth back over it, and I will bury it. Back where it belongs.
I'll rest against a tree's rough trunk. The sun will be setting, it's dazzling color threading through the sky, making my cheeks warm.
Then I will wake up.
Good-bye, Ty,
Gemma - Author: Lucy Christopher

Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#12. It was so big, that view. I'll never remember it properly. How can anyone remember something that big? I don't think people's brains are designed for memories like that. They're designed for things like phone numbers, or the color of someone's hair. Not hugeness. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher

Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#14. I mean, that star over there is blinking at me madly now, but for how long? An hour or two, or for the next million years? And how long will we sit here like this? Just another moment, or the rest of our lives? You know which one I'd prefer ... - Author: Lucy Christopher

#16. Who says I'm not Superman?" You were looking at me with one eye closed against the sun. I shrugged
"You would have recued me by now if you were Superman." I said quietly.
"Who says I haven't?
" Anyone would say you haven't.
Anyone's just looking at it wrong then." You pushed yourself up a little, onto your elbows."Anyways, I can't steal you and rescue you. That would give me multiple personalities."
And you don't have them already? - Author: Lucy Christopher

#26. You moved my head so that it was lying in your lap.
"Keep your eyes open," you said. "Stay with me."
I tried. It felt like I was using every muscle in my face. But I did it. I saw you from upside down, your lips above my eyes and your eyes above my lips.
"Talk to me," you said.
My throat felt like it was closing up, as if my skin had swollen, making my throat a lump of solid flesh. I gripped your hand.
"Keep watching me, then," you said. "Keep listening. - Author: Lucy Christopher

Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#30. You told me once of the plants that lie dormant through the drought, that wait, half-dead, deep in the earth. The plants that wait for the rain. You said they'd wait for years, if they had to; that they'd almost kill themselves before they grew again. But as soon as those first drops of water fall, those plants begin to stretch and spread their roots. They travel up through the soil and sand to reach the surface. There's a chance for them again. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#31. You saw me before I saw you - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#32. Lets face it, you did steal me. But you saved my life too. And somewhere in the middle, you showed me a place so different and beautiful, I can never get it out of my mind. And I can't get you out of there either. You're stuck in my brain like my own blood vessels. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#33. I wrapped my arms around me as tightly as I could, and stared up at the stars. Had I not been so cold and wanting to escape so badly, I could have stared at them forever: They were amazingly beautiful, so dense and bright. My eyes could get lost up there if I left them looking long enough. [ ... ] They swallowed me up. They were like a hundred thousand tiny candles, sending out hope. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher

#35. Listen," you said.
"To what? There's nothing."

"Godamn rooster! - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher

#44. I remember that feeling of skin. It's
strange to remember touch more than thought. But my fingers
still tingle with it. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#45. When I write this in bed, I can almost hear the echo of the wind over the sand, or the groans of wooden panels around me. I can almost smell the dustiness of the camel, taste the bitterness of saltbush. And when I dream, your warm hands cover my shoulders. Your whispers carry stories and sound like the rustle of spinifex. I still wear that ring, you know ... at night, when no one is watching. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#46. You carried it in your hand like it was the most precious thing. It reminded me of what I used to be like, when I lived out here ... It reminded me of finding something wild and knowing it was important somehow, to something." You drew another circle over your knee, then filled it in with specks. "It made me realize where I belonged ... not in a city park with cheap store-bought spirits, but out here in the land I knew, with the real ones. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher

#50. I called the rooster Dick, after you. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#51. I ate the roll, and forced down some more sparkling wine. When your eyes closed against the sun again, and I had nothing else to look at I glanced quickly at your chest, curious, really. I'd only seen chests like that in magazines. I wondered if that's how you'd got all your money ... modeling. I looked down at my stomach. I grabbed at it, seeing how much fat I could lift up in a roll.
"Don't worry," you said, one eye open again like a crocodile, watching me. "You're beautiful." You tipped your head back again "Beautiful," you murmured. "Perfect."
"You wouldn't know. You're built like some sort of supermodel." I bit my lip, wishing I hadn't complimented you like that. "Or a stripper," I added. "Prostitute."
"I wouldn't want you to think I'm repulsive," you said, half smiling.
"Too late."
You opened your other eye to squint at me. "Will you ever give me a break? - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#52. The sun was bobbing on the horizon, just peeking over. Its light shimmered on the sand behind you, making your body look like it was glowing ... like it had a kind of aura. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#53. Doesn't that hurt?" I said. "Yep." "How do you keep them in there?" "I'm stubborn." You grinned. "Stubborn as a waddywood. And anyway, pain means it's healing." "Not always. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#54. You nodded towards the cup. "Want
more?"
I shook my head. "What about the car?"
"Didn't find it. You were heading back towards me when I
found you."
"Towards ... ?"
You nodded. "So I reckoned the car had probably got stuck
or died somehow, and you were just coming home."
"Home?"
"Yeah." Your mouth twitched. "Back to me. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#55. I'd seen you before ... somewhere ... . But who were you? My eyes kept flitting back to your face. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#56. I could hear you, talking to the daffodils and tulips, whispering to the fairies that lived inside their petals. Each separate flower had a different family inside it. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#57. I didn't want the person standing there, beside the bed, to have the same face I'd found so attractive at the airport. But you were there all right: the blue eyes, blondish hair, and tiny scar. Only you didn't look beautiful this time. Just evil. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#58. Don't do that again," you said.
I blinked.
"You'll hurt yourself."
"Does it matter?" My voice was only a whisper.
"Of course. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#59. I can't save you like that Ty.
What you did to me wasn't this brilliant thing, like you think it was. You took me away from everything - my parents, my friends, my life. You took me to the sand and the heat, the dirt and isolation. And you expected me to love you. And that's the hardest bit. Because I did, or at least, I loved something out there.
But I hated you too. I can't forget that. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#60. A sign that a person could do something different ... that they could be hooked by a drug more wild than alcohol. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#61. Right at that moment it was as if we were the only two people left in the world. And I don't mean that to sound corny; it just honestly did. The only sounds were the droning crickets and chip-chips of the bats, the farawy wind against the sand, and the occasional distant yowl of a dingo. There were no car horns.No trains. No jack-hammers. No lawnmowers No planes. No sirens. No alarms. No anything human. If you'd told me that you'd saved me from a nuclear holocaust, I might have believed you. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#62. I made it," you said, gruffly, "for you."
You shoved it onto my finger. It was roughly carved, shaped from a lump of something colourful and cold ... a ring made entirely from a gemstone. It was beautiful. It glinted emerald greens and blood reds over my skin, and had tiny flecks of gold catching the light. I couldn't stop staring at it.
"Why?" I asked.
You didn't answer that. Instead you touched the ring gently and looked piercingly at me, unsaid questions in your eyes. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#63. Ty?" I said, trying out your name, liking the way it sounded. "So what's it like anyway? Australia?"
You smiled then, and your whole face changed with it. It kind of lit up, like there were sunbeams coming from inside you.
"You'll find out," you said. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#64. I thought you wanted to catch a camel," you tried again.
"No."
"I want to."
"Well, you go then."
You laughed. "I want your beautiful face where I can see it - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#65. It's funny, isn't it?" you started quietly. "How you look up there and find a city, and I look at London and see a landscape?"

I frowned, glancing back at you. "What do you mean 'landscape'?"

"Just everything underneath, I guess." You rubbed your fingers against your beard, thinking. "All that earth and life, always just under the concrete, ready to push back through the pavement and take over the city at any time. All that life beneath the dead."

"London's more than just a pile of concrete," I said.

"Maybe." Your eyes glinted in the dark. "But without humans, the wild would take over. It would only need a hundred years or so for nature to win again. We're just temporary, really. - Author: Lucy Christopher
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Christopher
#66. Many religious liberals today seem to think that different people can believe in different mutually exclusive things without any of them being wrong, as long as their beliefs "work for them." This one believes in reincarnation, that one in heaven and hell; a third believes in the extinction of the soul at death, but no one can be said to be wrong as long as everyone gets a satisfying spiritual rush from what they believe. To borrow a phrase from Susan Sontag, we are surrounded by "piety without content. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#67. By strengthening the economy, providing job opportunity and meeting the needs of working families, we can ensure the continued prosperity of our nation. - Author: Christopher Dodd
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Dodd
#68. Is it possible to refuse the medal?" she asked. "To forfeit it?"
"Not voluntarily. I'd have to do something illegal or hideous to invoke the expulsion clause."
"We could plan a crime for you to commit," Beatrix suggested. "I'm sure my family would have some excellent suggestions."
Christopher looked at her then, his eyes like silvered glass in the moonlight. For a moment Beatrix feared the attempt at levity might have annoyed him. But then there was a catch of laughter in his throat, and he folded her into his arms. "Beatrix," he whispered. "I'll never stop needing you. - Author: Lisa Kleypas
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#69. The capacity for loyalty is stretched too thin when it tries to attach itself to the hypothetical solidarity of the human race. - Author: Christopher Lasch
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Lasch
#70. It is possible to make buildings by stringing together patterns, in a rather loose way. A building made like this, is an assembly of patterns. It is not dense. It is not profound. But it is also possible to put patterns together in such a way that many patterns overlap in the same physical space: the building is very dense; it has many meanings captured in a small space; and through this density, it becomes profound. - Author: Christopher Alexander
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Alexander
#71. The drawings are terribly good. - Author: Christopher Fowler
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Fowler
#72. Only very slowly and late have men come to realize that unless freedom is universal it is only extended privilege. - Author: John Edward Christopher Hill
Lucy Christopher quotes by John Edward Christopher Hill
#73. As to blood - ah, blood, the whole subject fascinates me. I do like that as well, warm and dripping, when I am thirsty. And I am often thirsty. - Author: Christopher Pike
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Pike
#74. Autumn

Autumn: the year breathes dully towards its death,
beside its dying sacrificial fire;
the dim world's middle-age of vain desire
is strangely troubled, waiting for the breath
that speaks the winter's welcome malison
to fix it in the unremembering sleep:
the silent woods brood o'er an anxious deep,
and in the faded sorrow of the sun,
I see my dreams' dead colours, one by one,
forth-conjur'd from their smouldering palaces,
fade slowly with the sigh of the passing year.
They wander not nor wring their hands nor weep,
discrown'd belated dreams! but in the drear
and lingering world we sit among the trees
and bow our heads as they, with frozen mouth,
looking, in ashen reverie, towards the clear
sad splendour of the winter of the far south.

Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher John Brennan
#75. Lucy. Luce. Luz is light in Spanish, right?" You paused. I nodded. "Well, thank you for filling a dark day with light. - Author: Jill Santopolo
Lucy Christopher quotes by Jill Santopolo
#76. Already she is adapting herself, as she will adapt herself to very new régime. This morning I even heard her talking reverently about 'Der Führer' to the porters' wife. If anybody were to remind her that, at the elections last November, she voted communist,she would probably deny it hotly, and in perfect good faith. She is merely acclimatizing herself, in accordance with a natural law, like an animal which changes its coat for the winter. Thousands of people like Frl. Schroeder are acclimatizing themselves. After all, whatever government is in power, they are doomed to live in this town. - Author: Christopher Isherwood
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Isherwood
#77. I think when you sit alone with your brain too much, your own brain starts to rebel against you. - Author: Christopher Titus
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Titus

Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Henry Dawson
#80. There's enough adverbs in the world for you to start creating new ones. - Author: Christopher Owens
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Owens
#81. The term 'genre' eventually becomes pejorative because you're referring to something that's so codified and ritualised that it ceases to have the power and meaning it had when it first started. - Author: Christopher Nolan
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Nolan
#82. But I would argue that a longer war it's more difficult to keep records than a shorter war. - Author: Christopher Shays
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Shays
#83. The mystery of Christopher Wheeldon deepens. Yes, he's the most talented of the younger ballet choreographers - indeed, where's the competition? Yes, he's particularly good at nurturing dancers and identifying their essential qualities. - Author: Robert Gottlieb
Lucy Christopher quotes by Robert Gottlieb
#84. Miss Pickett...Lucy ~ for the love of heaven, may I call you Lucy? I've saved you from a ghost and a vamp attack. I've seen your naked back, and this marks the second time you've slept in my bed. - Author: Nancy Campbell Allen
Lucy Christopher quotes by Nancy Campbell Allen

Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#87. Sir Steven Runciman, whose history of the Crusades is an imperishable work, because it demonstrates that medieval Christian fundamentalism not only constituted a menace to Islamic civilization but also directly resulted in the sack of Byzantium, the retardation of Europe, and the massacre of the Jews. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#88. I belong to a culture that includes Proust, Henry James, Tchaikovsky, Cole Porter, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Alexander the Great, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Christopher Marlowe, Walt Whitman, Herman Melville, Tennessee Williams, Byron, E.M. Forster, Lorca, Auden, Francis Bacon, James Baldwin, Harry Stack Sullivan, John Maynard Keynes, Dag Hammarskjold… These are not invisible men. Poor Bruce. Poor frightened Bruce. Once upon a time you wanted to be a soldier.
Bruce, did you know that an openly gay Englishman was as responsible as any man for winning the Second World War? His name was Alan Turing and he cracked the Germans' Enigma code so the Allies knew in advance what the Nazis were going to do - and when the war was over he committed suicide he was so hounded for being gay. Why don't they teach any of this in the schools? If they did, maybe he wouldn't have killed himself and maybe you wouldn't be so terrified of who you are. The only way we'll have real pride is when we demand recognition of a culture that isn't just sexual. It's all there - all through history we've been there; but we have to claim it, and identify who was in it, and articulate what's in our minds and hearts and all our creative contributions to this earth. And until we do that, and until we organize ourselves block by neighborhood by city by state into a united visible community that fights back, we're doomed. That's how I want to be defined: as one of the men who fought the war. - Author: Larry Kramer
Lucy Christopher quotes by Larry Kramer
#89. Is "ho" always feminine, and "muthafucka" always masculine, while "bitch" can be either? How - Author: Christopher Moore

Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Moore
#92. When I walk in the front door after a shift, Lucy, I want your mouth on mine before I even get my jacket off - Author: Tessa Bailey
Lucy Christopher quotes by Tessa Bailey
#93. Authors as diverse as Matthew Arnold and George Orwell have given thought to the serious question: what is to be done about morals and ethics now that religion has so much decayed? Arnold went almost as far as to propose that the study of literature replace the study of religion. I must say that I slightly dread the effect that this might have had on literary pursuit, but as a source of ethical reflection and as a mirror in which to see our human dilemmas reflected, the literary tradition is infinitely superior to the childish parables and morality tales, let alone the sanguinary and sectarian admonitions, of the "holy" books. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#94. I believe that there are many herbs and many trees that are worth much in Europe for dyes and for medicines; but I do not know, and this causes me great sorrow. Arriving at this cape, I found the smell of the trees and flowers so delicious that it seemed the pleasantest thing in the world. - Author: Christopher Columbus
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Columbus
#95. The past is just something that's over. - Author: Christopher Isherwood
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Isherwood
#96. I wanted to be a doctor when I was young. I also wanted to be a paramedic, but I always wanted to be an actor as well. I didn't have kids or something that I needed to provide for. - Author: Christopher Parker
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Parker
#97. The four most over-rated things in life are champagne, lobster, anal sex, and picnics. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#98. When I was younger, I was nervous and didn't have a huge amount of confidence as an actor. Comedy is something - you know when you're getting it right because you can hear. And you can hear if you're not getting it right! I like to create interesting, weird characters, and they're often best in comedies. - Author: Lucy Punch
Lucy Christopher quotes by Lucy Punch
#99. In that moment, there was no place for doubt. I was sitting with the supreme being. I had always sat beside her. She was inside of me. - Author: Christopher Pike
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Pike
#100. But what would have been the good?"
Aslan said nothing.
"You mean," said Lucy rather faintly, "that it would have turned out all right – somehow? But how? Please, Aslan! Am I not to know?"
"To know what would have happened, child?" said Aslan. "No. Nobody is ever told that."
"Oh dear," said Lucy.
"But anyone can find out what will happen," said Aslan. "If you go back to the others now, and wake them up; and tell them you have seen me again; and that you must all get up at once and follow me – what will happen? There is only one way of finding out. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Lucy Christopher quotes by C.S. Lewis
#101. After a pause, he asked, 'What do you think of Nasuada's plans?'
'Mmm ... she's doomed! You're doomed! They're all doomed!'She cackled, doubling over, then straightened abruptly. 'notice I didn't specify what kind of doom, so no matter what happens, I predicted it. How very wise of me.' She lifted the basket again, setting it on one hip. 'I supposed I won't see you for a while, so farewell, best of luck, avoid roasted cabbage, don't eat earwax, and look on the bright side of life!' And with a cheery wink, she strolled off, leaving Eragon blinking and nonplussed. - Author: Christopher Paolini
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Paolini

Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Durang
#104. I know exactly where I've come from, I know exactly who my mum and dad are. - Author: Christopher Eccleston
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Eccleston
#105. In a normal family, a surprise means presents, cake and a party. For me ? I had no idea. And my family, doing something nice is seen as an attack. When I was nine, I 'attacked' my father with a fathers day gift. A visor organiser for his car, because it was useful. And it rhymed. Visor. Organiser. I was nine. - Author: Christopher Titus
Lucy Christopher quotes by Christopher Titus
#106. Nature is only terrible or squalid to those who do not understand her, and when misunderstanding has upset her balance. She is imbued above all with the power of love; by love she can after all be conquered, but in no other way. That has not been our way. We have attempted a less excellent way, and have upset the 'balance of nature,' so that she no longer appears to us in pleasant guise but in a guise in which the appearance of an opposition of forces - a 'struggle for existence' - predominates over the appearance of a balance of forces. So we have come to believe in a struggle for existence as the only possibility, and we infer that any such struggle is necessarily painful. It is painful now, and not only to ourselves. But it was not always so and need not always be so. We are the head and have the responsibility. We have tried to conquer nature by force and by intellect. It now remains for us to try the way of love - Author: Walter Ernest Christopher James
Lucy Christopher quotes by Walter Ernest Christopher James
#107. Okay, Lucy, what did you want to talk to me about?" he asked.
"Us."
