#1. It's only a story, you say. So it is, and the rest of life with it - creation story, love story, horror, crime, the strange story of you and I. The alphabet of my DNA shapes certain words, but the story is not told. I have to tell it myself. What is it that I have to tell myself again and again? That there is always a new beginning, a different end. I can change the story. I am the story. Begin. - Author: Jeanette Winterson
Strange Crime quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#2. There is no crime greater, or more worthy of punishment, than being strange and frightened among the strange and frightened; except assimilation to the end of becoming strange and frightened, but apart from ones own real self. - Author: Israel Horovitz
Strange Crime quotes by Israel Horovitz

Strange Crime quotes by Laurence J. Peter
#4. What was Dr. Mera's motive for murder? I don't need to tell that to a writer of detective novels such as yourself. You know well enough yourself that even without a motive, a murderer lives to kill. - Author: Rampo Edogawa
Strange Crime quotes by Rampo Edogawa
#5. Mrs. Kronborg was a strange woman. That word "talent", which no one else in Moonstone, not even Dr. Archie, would have understood, she comprehended perfectly. To any other woman there, it would have meant that a child must have her hair curled every day and must play in public. Mrs. Kronborg knew it meant that Thea must practice four hours a day. A child with talent must be kept at the piano, just as a child with measles must be kept under the blankets. - Author: Willa Cather
Strange Crime quotes by Willa Cather
#6. It's a huge Carthusian monastery, stuck down between rocks and sea, where you may imagine me, without white gloves or hair curling, as pale as ever, in a cell with such doors as Paris never had for gates. The cell is the shape of a tall coffin, with an enormous dusty vaulting, a small window ... Bach, my scrawls and waste paper - silence - you could scream - there would still be silence. Indeed, I write to you from a strange place. - Author: Frederic Chopin
Strange Crime quotes by Frederic Chopin
#7. I would expect such behavior from the children,not from their mother."
She tsked at him, not even a little daunted. "Aren't you the least bit curious?"
"Certainly,but I can wait until-"
"But I can't wait," she cut in passionately. "Come with me, Warren. I'll be careful with it. And if it's nothing more'n a simple gift, albeit a mysterious one, then I'll have the box wrapped up again perfectly, so no one will know we tampered with it."
"You're serious about this?" he asked. "You're actually going to sneak downstairs in the middle of the night like an errant schoolgirl-"
"No,no,we are, like two perfectly sensible adults making a reasonable effort to solve a mystery that has been around far too long."
He chuckled at that point, used to his wife's strange logic, and used to her ignoring any of his attempts at sternness.But then that was the magic of Amy.She was unlike any other woman he'd ever known.
He gave in gracefully with a smile. "Very well,fetch our robes and some shoes.I would imagine the fire has been banked in the parlor, so it will be a mite chilly."
It wasn't that long before they were standing next to The Present, Warren merely curious, Amy finding it hard to contain her excitement, considering what she expected to find beneath the pretty cloth wrapping.The parlor wasn't chilly at all,since whoever had lef the room last had closed the doors to contain the earlier warmth, and Warren had closed them again before he lit several of - Author: Johanna Lindsey

Strange Crime quotes by Adam Gidwitz

Strange Crime quotes by Amir D. Aczel
#10. Conan Doyle deluded a century of readers into thinking we're all deductive geniuses. - Author: Rob Thomas
Strange Crime quotes by Rob Thomas
#11. It felt like one of those perfect moments where everything comes together. But like I said, I don't believe in accidents. Even if this strange, musical moment, the final result of a long chain of unlikely events, never came to anything else, it was meant to be.
Something new had been born. - Author: Mark Peter Hughes
Strange Crime quotes by Mark Peter Hughes
#12. They were nothing more than people, by themselves. Even paired, any pairing, they would have been nothing more than people by themselves. But all together, they have become the heart and muscles and mind of something perilous and new, something strange and growing and great.
Together, all together, they are the instruments of change. - Author: Keri Hulme
Strange Crime quotes by Keri Hulme
#13. A strange thing, the human heart in general, and woman's heart in particular. - Author: Mikhail Lermontov
Strange Crime quotes by Mikhail Lermontov
#14. A strange effect of marriage, such as the nineteenth century has made it! The boredom of married life inevitably destroys love, when love has preceded marriage. And yet, as a philosopher has observed, it speedily brings about, among people who are rich enough not to have to work, an intense boredom with all quiet forms of enjoyment. And it is only dried up hearts, among women, that it does not predispose to love. - Author: Stendhal
Strange Crime quotes by Stendhal
#15. What's unique about Wright's disdain for endlessly proliferating microdefinitions inspired by and based on other microdefinitions is that he eventually, casually, and seemingly offhandedly suggests at the end of his article that we could simply rewrite the law altogether and eliminate the crime known as burglary. Some men just want to watch the world burn. His logic rests on the fabulous conclusion that, legally speaking, architecture is a form of "magic," one that has no place in an otherwise rational system. Architecture is the "magic of four walls," he writes, referring to its power to fundamentally transform how certain crimes are judged - Author: Geoff Manaugh
Strange Crime quotes by Geoff Manaugh
#16. I felt a strange fluttering sensation in my chest. Butterflies, cardiac arrest ... it was hard to say what exactly. - Author: Richelle Mead
Strange Crime quotes by Richelle Mead
#17. Going to prison is terrible. You're never comfortable. All the talk about 'Club Fed' is garbage… You're surrounded by very violent people, very unstable people. Prisons work hard to make you uncomfortable. But that's not what's bad about going to prison. What's bad about going to prison is that you're separated from your family. - Author: Andrew Fastow
Strange Crime quotes by Andrew Fastow
#18. And why are you sitting there? (Callie)
Because it's rather difficult to stand while sleeping. (Sin)
You are sleeping outside my door? Why? (Callie)
Because if I slept outside of Simon's door, the innkeeper might think I'm strange. (Sin) - Author: Kinley MacGregor
Strange Crime quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#19. The world is a strange place for a playhouse to stand within it. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Strange Crime quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#20. To proceed with the Biblical curiosities. Naturally you will think the threat to punish Adam and Eve for disobeying was of course not carried out, since they did not create themselves, nor their natures nor their impulses nor their weaknesses, and hence were not properly subject to anyone's commands and not responsible to anybody for their acts.It will surprise you to know that the threat was carried out. Adam and Eve were punished and that crime finds apologists unto this day.The sentence of death was executed. - Author: Mark Twain
Strange Crime quotes by Mark Twain
#21. But he found it strange to think of these little changes of scene, the little gains, the little losses, the thing brought, the thing removed, the light given, the light taken, and all the vain offerings to the hour, - Author: Samuel Beckett
Strange Crime quotes by Samuel Beckett
#22. True love is an intense desire for the presence of its object. God is only ours in reality when we are conscious of His nearness, and that is strange love of Him which is content to pass days without ever setting Him before itself. - Author: Alexander MacLaren
Strange Crime quotes by Alexander MacLaren
#23. [The political mind] is a strange mixture of vanity and timidity, of an obsequious attitude at one time and a delusion of grandeurat another time. The political mind is the product of men in public life who have been twice spoiled. They have been spoiled with praise and they have been spoiled with abuse. - Author: Calvin Coolidge
Strange Crime quotes by Calvin Coolidge
#24. Like walking in the darkness--
When you walk there long enough,
You adjust to it. You forget how dark it is.
Then, a glimpse of day! How bright he is!
Illuminating everything,
My love, my life, my light.
But all too soon the curtain falls
Bringing back the darkened night.
Unaccustomed to it now.
Where once it was a peaceful place,
It seems as dark as dark can be.
Never quite as comfortable
On this strange familiar path
Fumbling in the dark and watching now
For new light to help me find my way. - Author: Kate McGahan
Strange Crime quotes by Kate McGahan
#25. It is strange the way trauma deadens curiosity. To suffer cruelty in excess is to be delivered from care. The human heart sets aside its questions when the future is too capricious. This is the irony of tribulation.
To know the world will never be so bad. - Author: R. Scott Bakker
Strange Crime quotes by R. Scott Bakker
#26. The future is a strange monster. The less there is of it, the more it frightens. - Author: James Lovegrove
Strange Crime quotes by James Lovegrove
#27. For tomorrow would be different. Still wonderful, yes. But not filled with this strange wonder. You don't have to be grown up to understand the way things change. To understand that a thing can be truly new only once, and precious because it came to you when you did not look for it. - Author: Cameron Dokey
Strange Crime quotes by Cameron Dokey
#28. HARRY: "The truth is a beautiful and terrible thing, and should therefore be treated with great caution."
(GINNY looks at him, surprised.)
GINNY: A strange thing to say to a child.
HARRY: Not when you believe that child will have to die to save the world. - Author: J.K. Rowling
Strange Crime quotes by J.K. Rowling
#29. Mortals are strange creatures; they cling to life even when that life is nothing but pain and misery, yet they will throw away their lives for a word, an idea, even a flag. Wolves piss to mark their territory. Smell the stench of another pack and wolves will quietly slink away. Why risk a fight when it might maim or kill you? But humans will slash and slaughter in their thousands to plant their little piece of cloth on a hill or hang it from a battlement. - Author: Karen Maitland
Strange Crime quotes by Karen Maitland
#30. There are only three weeks left, Matty. After the border closes it will be too late. She won't be allowed to come. You must bring her here before that happens.
"If you don't, Matty, I will never see her again."
"It always seems strange to me when you say 'see.'"
The blind man smiled. "I see in my heart, Matty. - Author: Lois Lowry
Strange Crime quotes by Lois Lowry
#31. I was aware, in those early days of motherhood, that my behaviour was strange to the people who knew me well. It was as though I had been brainwashed, taken over by a cult religion. And yet this cult, motherhood, was not a place where I could actually live. Like any cult, it demanded a complete surrender of identity to belong to it. - Author: Rachel Cusk
Strange Crime quotes by Rachel Cusk
#32. Colour, as the strange and magnificent expression of the inscrutable spectrum of Eternity, is beautiful and important to me as a painter; I use it to enrich the canvas and to probe more deeply into the object. Colour also decided, to a certain extent, my spiritual outlook, but it is subordinated to life, and above all, to the treatment of form. Too much emphasis on colour at the expense of form and space would make a double manifestation of itself on the canvas, and this would verge on craft work. - Author: Max Beckmann
Strange Crime quotes by Max Beckmann
#33. Be careful, you are not in Wonderland. I've heard the strange madness long growing in your soul. But you are fortunate in your ignorance, in your isolation. You who have suffered, find where love hides. Give, share, lose - lest we die, unbloomed. - Author: Allen Ginsberg
Strange Crime quotes by Allen Ginsberg
#34. Isn't it strange to see an event happening precisely because it was not supposed to happen? - Author: Anonymous
