Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#2. Truth, terrible truth! It is like an ancient curse, from which there is no escape. The truth will drive one mad. Yet without it, how can one make sense of life's madness? - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#3. At least, when it comes, the black night of death will not frighten a creature still blind from being born. That is some comfort, is it not? - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#4. Remember, Weed: The good of one tree is not important. The good of the forest is what matters. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#5. There is much I do not understand about the way humans think of punishment and forgiveness, and what happens to sinners when they die. I wish Jessamine was here to explain it to me, for the plants do not speak of heaven and hell. They speak only of the turning of the seasons and of starting anew each spring. Never despair, they counsel, for the orchard that is barren one season may bear fruit in plenty in the next. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#6. [A]s Agatha Swanburne once said, 'To be kept waiting is unfortunate, but to be kept waiting with nothing interesting to read is a tragedy of Greek proportions. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#7. This memory was both happy and sad: happy because it was so pleasant, and sad because it made Penelope think about how much she missed Swanburne
the girls, the teachers, Miss Mortimer. Or perhaps it was her own much younger self, that pint-sized person whom she could never be again, whom she missed. It was hard to say. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#8. I watch, and wait. And mourn, for what I must now do to save Jessamine's life makes me unworthy of her love. Whether she lives or dies, I know I have lost her.
I have lost her, forever. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#9. Of course we will send postcards to Nutsawoo. And we shall bring him back a present as well. In fact,' she went on, with the instinctive knack every good governess has for turning something enjoyable into a lesson, and vice versa, 'I will expect all three of you to practice your writing by keeping a journal of our trip so that Nutsawoo may know how we spend our days. Why, by the time we return, he will think he has been to London himself! He will be the envy of all his little squirrel friends,' she declared.
Penelope had no way of knowing if this last statement was true. Could squirrels feel envy? Would they give two figs about London? Did Nutsawoo even have friends? - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#10. The children never troubled themselves about whether they were fixable or not, as they did not consider themselves broken in the first place. You may decide for yourself what to think about it, but it is worth remembering that often people who are told they need fixing are perfectly fine as they are. It is our own narrow notion of how things ought to be that is truly in need of repair. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#11. But when the seesaw of good fortune sinks downward for one person, it is very often on its way up for someone else. This little-known law of physics is called the Fulcrum of Fortune, and although most people prefer to think of fortune as a wheel that spins, the fulcrum (that is, seesaw) is a more accurate depiction for most of us, since the worse our own luck becomes, the more likely we are to notice the good fortune of those around us and brood about the injustice of it all. - Author: Maryrose Wood

#13. I will have the children read Hamlet as soon as it is practical. There are some useful cautions against eavesdropping to be gleaned from that. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#14. You flesh bodies are so obsessed with goodness, yet no other form of life on earth is capable of such cruelty. You need only convince yourselves your transgressions serve some 'purpose.' Even if it is only greed, or lust, or the raw desire for power that drives you. You will spill the blood of your kinsmen, lay waste to the earth itself, wreak havoc, and cause unspeakable suffering
any and all sins are justified, as long as they are a means to your precous, righteous 'purpose'. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#15. It makes no difference what you wear, really. I'll put you in a dark grey. I believe I have some left over from a funeral. says the dressmaker. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#16. One of my recent acquisitions. It is called a medicine bag, from one of the native tribes of North America. A fascinating people, highly skilled in the use of plants' power. They too understand nature's essence as divine. So much so that they do not think it is man's place to own the land at all. Imagine that - think of all the wars we would have missed! - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#17. There is no alarm clock like embarrassment, - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#18. Nowadays, people resort to all kinds of activities in order to calm themselves after a stressful event: performing yoga poses in a sauna, leaping off bridges while tied to a bungee, killing imaginary zombies with imaginary weapons, and so forth. But in Miss Penelope Lumley's day, it was universally understood that there is nothing like a nice cup of tea to settle one's nerves in the aftermath of an adventure- a practice many would find well worth reviving. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#19. Call it professional interest. You see, Jessamine, love is a kind of poison; one of my favorite kinds, in fact. It infects the blood; it takes over the mind; it seizes dominion over the body. It amuses me to think of him pining for you. Aching for what he cannot have. The loneliness in his soul is festering like a wound. There is nothing I could do for him that is worse that what you have already done, my lovely. And I assure you, in his case there will be no cure. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#20. There is no alarm clock like embarassment. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#21. A crease of disquiet snakes across his brow. 'Your father plays with fire to gather them together like that. They are too clever. They form alliances. They develop - ambitions.'
He looks so solemn I wish to soothe his fears. 'You worry too much, I am sure,' I say lightly. 'After all, they are still rooted in the ground, are they not? They cannot pull themselves up and march around wrecking havoc, like an invading army.'
'Maybe,' he says, though he sounds unsure. 'I have never met their like before; that is all. It disturbs me.' He gestures around. 'And not only me. The forests, the fields, the moss that grows on the rocks - none of them are happy about that garden. Nature would have kept those plants safely apart, scattered over the continents, separated by oceans. But your father has summoned them from the corners of the earth and locked them together, side by side, hidden behind walls, where they can grow in secret. It is wrong, Jessamine - I fear it is dangerous - - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#22. Weed, are you familiar with the work of Carl Linnaeus? His Systema Naturae describes a classification system for all growing things."
Weed's eyes dart everywhere, probing every corner. "Unless he visited the madhouse, I never met him," he replies. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#23. Some stupid fairy tale charecter. Like a cheap plastic toy you'd get get by sending in the top of a lucky charms box plus $3.99 shipping and handling. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#24. Hard-hearted people may be no fun to sit next to at parties, but they are just as entitled to earn a living as the rest of us. Fortunately-for them, at least-the need for insurance adjusters, tax collectors, theater critics, and the like continues to this very day. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#25. That which can be purchases at a shop is easily left in a taxi; that which you carry inside you is difficult, though not impossible, to misplace" -Agatha Swanburne - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#26. When things are looking up, there's no point in looking elsewhere -Agatha Swanburne - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#27. I hope you will understand it! Linnaeus says the plants get married and make new plant families, and then those families intermarry and create the species, and then the species intermarry and produce the varieties. You can see why Father would object."
"I suppose," says Weed. "But at least they were all legally wed. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#28. In this way Penelope's happy and sad feelings got all mixed up together, until they were not unlike one of those delicious cookies they have nowadays, the ones with a flat circle of sugary cream sandwiched between two chocolate-flavored wafers. In her heart she felt a soft, hidden core of sweet melancholy nestled inside crisp outer layers of joy, and if that is not the very sensation most people feel at some point or other during the holidays, then one would be hard pressed to say what is. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#29. It is a rare beast that gets such a funeral," Father remarked, sweating and leaning on his spade. "Lucky cat."
Personally I think the cat would have been luckier had it lived. Then again, life for a stray, unwanted thing is not always pleasant, so perhaps Father was right after all. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood

Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood

Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#33. I supposed this is what is meant by 'growing up'...Find out the difference between what one expected one's life would be like and how things really are" -Lady Constance - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#34. Thank you for your bounty, Oleander, Prince of Poisons, I think. Thank you for all that Mr. Pratt has already received, and all that my father is receiving still, as the poison twists like bramble in his gut, burns within his brain, presses like a boulder upon his heart. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#35. Most often they speak according to their kind – the deep rumble of oak, the whisper of the birch, or the singsong chant of the alder.
The evergreen stands of pine have voices sharp as needles.
But the forest can speak as one, when it must. When the trees so choose, they think with one mind. When there is danger, especially, they speak in one voice of a thousand echoes.
I hate it when they do this. For the forest mind is always right, and will hear no argument. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#36. He fills my head with tales from the ancient forests, tales so old that the trees themselves call them legends. It is as if a veil has been lifted from my eyes, and the world I have lived in all my sixteen years is revealed to be something else entirely, something so marvelous I could never have imagined it. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#37. A well-organized stocking drawer is the first step toward a well-organized mind. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#38. An open mind lets ideas out, as well as in" -Agatha Swanburne - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#39. Elk have not been seen in Switzerland for many a year. In the interests of scientific accuracy, please strike the idea of elk from your mind. If you must, think of ibexes instead, a fierce and agile type of goat with great spiraling horns. Marmots will also do in a pinch, but under no circumstances should you think of elk. No. Elk. The elkless among you may now proceed. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#40. No hopeless case is truly without hope." - Agatha Swanburne - Author: Maryrose Wood

Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#42. Nothing good was ever learned from eavesdropping, so mind your business and let others mind theirs. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#43. Beowulf's picture was far more elaborate than those of his siblings, and it did need a bit more work coloring in the background, but the gist of it was on full, frightening view. In the sky: a full moon, its eerie glow partially obscured by dark, swirling clouds. In the foreground: the dense, ferny undergrowth of a forest, bordered by a few gnarled tree trunks rising upward. In the center of the page: an old woman, wrapped in a cloak. Her mouth hung open in a leering smile, and her teeth were large and razor sharp, with a prominent set of gleaming white incisors. From the back of her shroudlike garments poked a long, wolfish tail. Cassiopeia and Alexander clapped and barked with admiration, but Penelope's skin went cold. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#44. Then you should be as willing. I know how poison fascinates you. Surely dying from it will fascinate you, too." Leaning closer, I hiss, "It is a pity you cannot take notes. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood

Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#46. Clearly, being anxious is a full-time and rather exhausting occupation. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#47. According to his diary he worked hard and without scruple to discover what he could on his own. Of course, in principle I have no objection to using human subjects, as long as they are already dead," she adds. "Have you heard of the anatomy theatre? It is where the medical school's dissections are performed. They use bears, monkeys, dogs, and human corpses too, when the weather is cool enough. The students have been known to kidnap a body the night before its dissection, dress it up, and take it for a gondola ride down the canal. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#48. If you have ever opened a can of worms, boxed yourself into a corner, ended up in hot water, or found yourself in a pretty pickle, you already know that life is rarely (if ever) just a bowl of cherries. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#49. Navigation, you see, is not just a problem for sailors. Everyone must go adventuring sooner or later, yet finding one's way home is not easy. Just like the North Star and all its whirling, starry brethren, a person's idea of where 'home' is remains in perpetual motion, one's whole life long.
Home was more than a house, even if the house was very grand. - Author: Maryrose Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Maryrose Wood
#50. Busy hands and idle minds have knitted many a sweater; Busy minds and idle hands have knitted many a brow. - Author: Maryrose Wood

#52. Nobody will ever notice that. Filmmaking is not about the tiny details. It's about the big picture. - Author: Ed Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Ed Wood
#53. Jay took out his guitar. He was decent at it, but the piano was his best talent. He couldn't get a certain riff right, so he handed the instrument to Kaidan, and my heart flipped.
I recalled him saying he played guitar, but I'd never actually seen or heard him play. Kaidan began to pick at each string, testing and tuning with his full attention. I watched the way his hands moved across the wood and strings, gently, reverently, his body seeming to curl around it as if it were a part of him. . . . I felt my hands getting sweaty, because watching Kaidan get lost in music did crazy things to me. My breathing became ragged and I couldn't take my eyes off him.
He looked up at that moment and caught me staring hard. He knew. He knew what it did to me! I could tell because his badge expanded.
He angled himself away from the others and signed to me, I want to be alone with you tonight.
Patti did have a lot of guests staying in the house. I signed back, I'll work on it.
"Excellent," he whispered, a hot grin sliding onto his face. - Author: Wendy Higgins
Maryrose Wood quotes by Wendy Higgins

Maryrose Wood quotes by Joseph Wood Krutch
#56. When I would re-create myself, I seek the darkest wood, the thickest and most interminable and to the citizen, most dismal, swamp. I enter as a sacred place, a Sanctum sanctorum. There is the strength, the marrow, of Nature. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Maryrose Wood quotes by Henry David Thoreau

#60. I have never been to St. John's Wood. I dare not. I should be afraid of the innumerable night of fir trees, afraid to come upon a blood red cup and the beating of the wings of the Eagle. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Maryrose Wood quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#61. Never let them try out this gratitude, for they would immediately discover that it supplies the first and most important component to happiness: Contentment. - Author: Geoffrey Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Geoffrey Wood
#62. Indeed if they ever once saw the endless supply of eternal opportunities The Adversary offers them every temporal moment of day after day of their fuddled little lives, they would stagger at the sheer industry and prodigality of His efforts. Conversely, if they ever gained a glimpse of how their ordinary actions actually effect and shape things not only under time but without, the very vast weight of that would almost certainly end in their becoming humble. - Author: Geoffrey Wood
Maryrose Wood quotes by Geoffrey Wood

Maryrose Wood quotes by Sam Taylor-Wood
#68. In the under-wood and the over-wood there is murmur and trill this day, For every bird is in lyric mood, And the wind will have its way. - Author: Clinton Scollard
Maryrose Wood quotes by Clinton Scollard
#69. The relaxation should not be a method. You should not relax through a Yoga posture. This very understanding is relaxing, this very understanding is relaxation. You relax, effort disappears. You live your ordinary life - you chop wood and you carry water from the well and you cook food and you eat and you sleep and you love and you live ordinarily with no hankering and no desire for anything extraordinary. - Author: Rajneesh
Maryrose Wood quotes by Rajneesh
#70. Age, that brings a dwindling to most forms of life, is at its most majestic in the trees. I have seen living olives that were planted when Caesar was in Gaul. I remember, in Illinois woods, a burr oak which was bent over as a sapling a hundred years ago, to mark an Indian portage trail, and the thews in that flexed bough were still in the prime of life. Compared to that, the strongest human sinew is feeble and quick to decay. Yet structure in both cases is cellular; life in both is protoplasmic. A tree drinks water as I do, and breathes oxygen. There is the difference that it exhales more oxygen than it consumes, so that it sweetens the air where it grows. It lays the dust and tempers the wind. Even when it is felled, it but enters on a new kind of life. Sawn and seasoned and finished, it lays bare the hidden beauty of its heart, in figures and grains more lovely than the most premeditated design. It is stronger, now, than it was in the living tree, and may bear great strains and take many shapes. - Author: Donald Culross Peattie
Maryrose Wood quotes by Donald Culross Peattie
#71. The Dead Father was slaying, in a grove of music and musicians. First he slew a harpist and then a performer upon the serpent and also a banger upon the rattle and also a blower of the Persian trumpet and one upon the Indian trumpet and one upon the Hebrew trumpet and one upon the Roman trumpet and one upon the Chinese trumpet of copper-covered wood. Also a blower upon the marrow trumpet and one upon the slide trumpet and one who wearing upon his head the skin of a cat performed upon the menacing murmurous cornu and three blowers on the hunting horn and several blowers of the conch shell and a player of the double aulos and flautists of all descriptions and a Panpiper and a fagotto player and two virtuosos of the quail whistle and a zampogna player whose fingering of the chanters was sweet to the ear and by-the-bye and during the rest period he slew four buzzers and a shawmist and one blower upon the water jar and a clavicytheriumist who was before he slew her a woman, and a stroker of the theorbo and countless nervous-fingered drummers as well as an archlutist, and then whanging his sword this way and that the Dead Father slew a cittern plucker and five lyresmiters and various mandolinists, and slew too a violist and a player of the kit and a picker of the psaltery and a beater of the dulcimer and a hurdy-gurdier and a player of the spike fiddle and sundry kettledrummers and a triangulist and two-score finger cymbal clinkers and a xylophone artist and two gongers and a playe - Author: Donald Barthelme
Maryrose Wood quotes by Donald Barthelme
#72. Would you leave me alone, you walking pair of boots! Let go of my easel, you refugee from a luggage factory. If you need some wood for a toothpick, there's a bunch of it on the porch. (Sunshine) Beth. What are you doing? ... She says she was forcing you inside before it got dark and something decided to eat you. (Talon) Tell Swamp Breath I was headed this way. Why was she ... Oh jeez, am I really have a conversation with a gator? (Sunshine) - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Maryrose Wood quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#73. See the child. He is pale and thin, he wears a thin and ragged linen shirt. He stokes the scullery fire. Outside lie dark turned fields with rags of snow and darker woods beyond that harbor yet a few last wolves. His folk are known for hewers of wood and drawers of water but in truth his father has been a schoolmaster. He lies in drink, he quotes from poets whose names are now lost. The boy crouches by the fire and watches him. - Author: Cormac McCarthy
Maryrose Wood quotes by Cormac McCarthy
#74. That the gods die from time to time is due to man's sudden discovery that they do not mean anything, that they are made by human hands, useless idols of wood and stone. - Author: C. G. Jung

Maryrose Wood quotes by Kurt Rambis
#80. General Taylor participated in the celebration of the Fourth of July, a very hot day, by hearing a long speech from the Hon. Henry S. Foote, at the base of the Washington Monument. Returning from the celebration much heated and fatigued, he partook too freely of his favorite iced milk with cherries, and during that night was seized with a severe colic, which by morning had quite prostrated him. It was said that he sent for his son-in-law, Surgeon Wood, United States Army, stationed in Baltimore, and declined medical assistance from anybody else. Mr. Ewing visited him several times, and was manifestly uneasy and anxious, as was also his son-in-law, Major Bliss, then of the army, and his confidential secretary. He rapidly grew worse, and died in about four days. - Author: William T. Sherman
Maryrose Wood quotes by William T. Sherman
#81. I love the Autumn,
And yet I cannot say
All the thoughts and things
That make me feel this way.

I love walking on the angry shore,
To watch the angry sea;
Where summer people were before,
But now there's only me.

I love wood fires at night
That have a ruddy glow.
I stare at the flames
And think of long ago.

I love the feeling down inside me
That says to run away
To come and be a gypsy
And laugh the gypsy way.

The tangy taste of apples,
The snowy mist at morn,
The wanderlust inside you
When you hear the huntsman's horn.

Nostalgia - that's the Autumn,
Dreaming through September
Just a million lovely things
I always will remember. - Author: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
Maryrose Wood quotes by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
