Christian Crews Christian Crews said: "So far more of a 3.5 or 3.75 (which are both very good marks to me). His humor and ability to convey so much with very few words are extraordinary. "

By morning she was dead. She had not died of starvation or committed suicide by any conventional means. She had simply willed herself to die, and being a strong-willed woman, she had succeeded. She had missed dying on her birthday by two days.John Berendt

“That, too, was in the air itself -- a whisper of apology when the smell of the soil carried. There should be pumpkins in the fields, or sunflowers, or the peppers you saw up north. Instead, it was the smell of old earth that the breezes caught, sometimes a tinge of death. Too hard to forget.”
Christian Crews, Hungry for Winter

“I thought that a man can be an enemy of other men, of the moments of other men, but not of a country: not of fireflies, words, gardens, streams of water, sunsets.”
Jorge Luis Borges

“Music, feelings of happiness, mythology, faces worn by time, certain twilights and certain places, want to tell us something, or they told us something that we should not have missed, or they are about to tell us something; this imminence of a revelation that is not produced is, perhaps, 'the aesthetic event'.”
Jorge Luis Borges

“The Crone tires quickly and reaches out for the velvet draperies, sits on the divan, breathing heavily. She's too ancient to have a name any longer. When she coughs you can hear the ages rattling inside her shrunken frame. No human names can cling to her any more- they slip from her dusty shriveled flesh like a young girl's whimsies.”
Tom Piccirilli, A Choir of Ill Children

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“you got two feet, Sethe, not four." he said, and right then a forest sprang up between them; tactless and quiet.”
Toni Morrison, Beloved
