Quotes Moira Liked

Sylvia Plath
“Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
and I eat men like air.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“A ring of gold with the sun in it?
Lies. Lies and a grief.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“There is a charge

For the eyeing of my scars, there is a charge
For the hearing of my heart -
It really goes.

And there is a charge, a very large charge,
For a word or a touch
Or a bit of blood

Or a piece of my hair or my clothes.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“Is it the sea you hear in me?
Its dissatisfactions?
Or the voice of nothing, that was your madness?

Love is a shadow.
How you lie and cry after it.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“The sun gives you ulcers, the wind gives you T.B.
Once you were beautiful.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“Now I am silent, hate
Up to my neck,
Thick, thick.
I do not speak.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“I am still raw.
I say I may be back.
You know what lies are for.

Even in your Zen heaven we shan't meet.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“If the moon smiled, she would resemble you.
You leave the same impression
Of something beautiful, but annihilating.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“No day is safe from news of you.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Sylvia Plath
“Every woman adores a Fascist,
The boot in the face, the brute
Brute heart of a brute like you.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition
