The following day his outline appeared in white chalk on the asphalt. Did the hand of the person who skirted the coastline of his body tremble? The city, its sidewalks: an enormous blackboard- instead of numbers, we add up bodies. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
The truth is there isn't anything to me at all. All I know is that I can't sleep well, I can't dream well and I'm quite in love with you. That's all there is to me. My greatest feature is my admiration for you. I know it's not healthy. Like my insomnia. Like my dreamless nights. You make living alright. My nightmares come when I think of a night without Valeria. That's when I realise you're dead. That's when I remember you've been gone for years. That's when I remember I'm awake. And I wait for this dream called Life to leave me to my peace once and for all and forever. ~ F.K. Preston
Solarino Valeria quotes by F.K. Preston
Perhaps no one really knows us who does not know the way we laugh. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
I came to Hollywood and I loved it. It was a great time, but in my head I was still elsewhere, in Europe. I believed in a certain cinema, which I still do believe in - a certain European cinema - and as a young woman being in America, I thought I was being taken away from that. ~ Valeria Golino
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Golino
I harbored the secret hope, or rather, the secret certainty, that one day I would finally turn into myself; into the image of myself I'd been elaborating for years. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me. ~ Valeria Lukyanova
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Lukyanova
Elijah: You are a dangerous woman.
Valeria: You do not know the half of it, but I suppose you are not one to always dabble in safe waters either. So, do you still want to work with me?
Elijah: It will be my pleasure.
Valeria: Is there anything I need to know about you?
Elijah: No!
Valeria: That is a lie.
Elijah: Is there anything I need to know about you?
Valeria: No!
Elijah: That is also a lie.
Valeria, smiling: Then we are a pair of liars. ~ Cristina M. Sburlea
Solarino Valeria quotes by Cristina M. Sburlea
I worked with fantastic actors, fantastic directors. People I would never otherwise have met. Was I limited? Yes. Did I use it as I could have? No. But I was always ambivalent about Hollywood and what I wanted. And ambivalence in our business is no good for success. ~ Valeria Golino
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Golino
You people keep spoiling my plans. First Wizard Suliman would not come near the Waste, so that I had to threaten Princess Valeria in order to make the King order him out here. Then, when he came, he grew trees. ~ Diana Wynne Jones
Solarino Valeria quotes by Diana Wynne Jones
Demented is the man who is always clenching his teeth on that solid, immutable block of stone that is the past. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
Real writers never show their teeth. Charlatans, in contrast, flash that sinister crescent when they smile. Check it out. Find photos of all the writers you respect, and you'll see that their teeth remain a permanently occult mystery. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
Stories are a way of subtracting the future from the past, the only way of finding clarity in hindsight. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
Ever since I was left somewhat alone, without gods, I have been a ferocious believer in the power of small coincidences. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
Perhaps learning to speak is realizing, little by little, that we can say nothing about anything. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
I feel Italian, but I also feel French," she said. "Italy is deeper. France is strong, but it's after." Actually, one of the surprises about meeting [Valeria Bruni Tedeschi] is how Italian she seems. Though she has no trace of an Italian accent when speaking French - and says that, in Italian, she shows signs of having lived in France - she sounds Italian when speaking English. There is no suggestion of French at all. ~ Mick LaSalle
Solarino Valeria quotes by Mick LaSalle
I think that it helps that I have acted. That said, it doesn't mean you're going to be a good director. ~ Valeria Golino
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Golino
I already love in you your beauty, but I am only beginning to love in you that which is eternal and ever precious – your heart, your soul. Beauty one could get to know and fall in love with in one hour and cease to love it as speedily; but the soul one must learn to know. Believe me, nothing on earth is given without labour, even love, the most beautiful and natural of feelings,But the more difficult the labour and hardship, the higher the reward,"

Count Leo Tolstoi to Valeria Arsenev, his fiance. November 2, 1856 ~ Leo Tolstoy
Solarino Valeria quotes by Leo Tolstoy
In 2003, Meryl Streep won a career achievement César Award, the French equivalent of an Oscar. Streep's words (my translation) acknowledged the enduring interest of French audiences in women's lives and women's stories:
"I have always wanted to present stories of women who are rather difficult. Difficult to love, difficult to understand, difficult to look at sometimes. I am very cognizant that the French public is receptive to these complex and contradictory women. As an actress I have understood for a long time that lies are simple, seductive and often easy to pass off. But the truth - the truth is always very very very complicated, often unpleasant, nuanced or difficult to accept."

In France, an actress can work steadily from her teens through old age - she can start out in stories of youthful rebellion and end up, fifty years later, a screen matriarch. And in the process, her career will end up telling the story of a life - her own life, in a sense, with the films serving, as Valeria Bruni Tedeschi puts it, as a "journal intime," or diary, of one woman's emotions and growth. No wonder so many French actresses are beautiful. They're radiant with living in a cinematic culture that values them, and values them as women. And they are radiant with living in a culture - albeit one with flaws of its own - in which women are half of who decides what gets valued in the first place. Their films transcend national and language barriers and are the best vehicles for c ~ Mick LaSalle
Solarino Valeria quotes by Mick LaSalle
The person who walks too slowly could be plotting a crime or - even worse - might be a tourist. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
I suppose that words, timely and arranged in the right order, produce an afterglow. When you read words like that in a book, beautiful words, a powerful but fleeting emotion ensues. And you also know that soon, it'll all be gone: the concept you just grasped and the emotion it produced. Then comes a need to possess that strange, ephemeral afterglow, and to hold on to that emotion. So you reread, underline, and perhaps even memorize and transcribe the words somewhere – in a notebook, on a napkin, on your hand. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
Perhaps it's right that words contain nothing, or almost nothing. That their content is, at the very least, variable. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
Before the immigration crisis was declared in the summer of 2014, minors seeking immigration relief were given approximately twelve months to find a lawyer to represent their case before their first court hearing. But when the crisis was declared and Obama's administration created the priority juvenile docket, that window was reduced to twenty-one days. In real and practical terms, what the creation of that priority docket meant was that the cases involving unaccompanied minors from Central America were grouped together and moved to the top of the list of pending cases in immigration court. Being moved to the top of a list, in this context, was the least desirable thing - at least from the point of view of the children involved. Basically, the priority juvenile docket implied that deportation proceedings against them were accelerated by 94 percent, and that both they and the organizations that normally provided legal representation now had much less time to build a defense. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
In some countries, women aren't allowed to wear a swimsuit. ~ Valeria Mazza
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Mazza
Perhaps the right word is recognition, in the sense of re-cognizing, knowing again, for a second or third time, like an echo of a knowledge, which brings acknowledgment, and possibly forgiveness. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
But this face, my face, like all faces, is not only a collection of traces- it's also the first draft of a future face... In my young face I instinctively read a first wrinkle of doubt, a first smile of indifference: lines of a story I'll rewrite and understand on a future reading. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
Valeria," the mayor's wife asked. "Are you all right this morning? My husband has been asking about you."
"Yes, desire. Quite. Don't you look lovely today. ~ Marc Fitten
Solarino Valeria quotes by Marc Fitten
He spoke slowly, as if searching for adjectives in the darkness. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
Although it might seem paradoxical, growing up in a family of liberal-minded atheists, committed but never militant, tends to have devastating consequences. Being raised without a rigid backdrop of religious, political, or spiritual beliefs makes it hard to have a real crises later in life. There is no way forward if your point of departure is the comfortable passivity of someone who has been a self-professed agnostic since the age of twelve, without ever having considered those important - one might say grave - matters, such as God, death, love, failure, or fear. For a precocious agnostic, the virtues offered by skepticism become terrifying hands that strangle and suffocate the already rare capacity of an individual to question things. Conversely, intelligent people who grow up thinking one thing and, on reaching a certain age, realize that everything they believe is open to doubt - stark, brutal doubt - can truly enjoy a profound crises that, in the worst cases, leads them to know themselves a little better. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
I'm even flattered! It's what success is like. I'm happy I seem unreal to them, it means I'm doing a good job, ~ Valeria Lukyanova
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Lukyanova
In the kitchen Valeria was making breakfast, his aunt never made breakfast even though Carlo insisted for years that a hotel hoping to cater to French and Americans must offer breakfast. "It's a lazy man's meal.", she always said. "What laggard expects to eat before doing any work? ~ Jess Walter
Solarino Valeria quotes by Jess Walter
Oren tells Marcus: You have a peaceful, noble heart. But as we discussed last night, some men deserve to die. Valeria knows that. ~ Scott Robert Scheller
Solarino Valeria quotes by Scott Robert Scheller
The end of things, the real end, is never a neat turn of the screw, never a door that is suddenly shut, but more like an atmospheric change, clouds that slowly gather - more a whimper than a bang. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
When a person has lived alone for a long time, the only way to confirm that they still exist is to express activities and things in an easily shared syntax: this face, these bones that walk, this mouth, this hand that writes. ~ Valeria Luiselli
Solarino Valeria quotes by Valeria Luiselli
