PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
Tender is the Night
By F. Scott Fitzgerald
QUOTATION: Her body calculated to a millimeter to suggest a bud yet guarantee
QUOTATION: Eighteen might look at thirty-four through a rising mist of
adolescence; but twenty-two would see thirty-eight with discerning clarity.
QUOTATION: When people are taken out of their depths they lose their
heads, no matter how charming a bluff they may put up.
QUOTATION: Either you thinkor else others have to think for you
and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize
and sterilize you.
QUOTATION: I hate the place like poison with a sincere hatred.
QUOTATION: One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology
of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual.
There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but
wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of
a finger, or the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one
minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.
