Quotes

Kuenzang Chodenhas quoted2 years ago
“Or even, maybe,” Zack said excitedly, “the different ways of human speech are crude and clumsy and are actually pointing toward the same thing, but different languages make them confused. Like, ”God‘ is behind the religions, like the sun you can’t look at directly, you’d go blind, except if there was no sun, see, then you would really be blind, because you couldn’t see a damned thing. Maybe it’s like that?“

As the fourth, so much younger wife, Mariana felt no triumph, but rather more a guilty sense of having usurped another woman’s place.
Itzel Robleshas quotedlast year
When young, a girl does not have to be beautiful but only just young

    Joyce Carol Oates, in my opinion, is always worth reading. Many of her novels have a sinister element in either her characters, or setting or bother. She has written many gothic novels that illustrate her ability to describe the most creepiest of situations and her characters. The story of Dorothea and Colin is no exeption, no gothics, but a wholly ethereal and dangerous character is Colin.
