Cara Hoffman quotes (showing 1-9 of 9)

“Sometimes she felt she had fallen asleep inside herself while she was wide awake working.”
Cara Hoffman, So Much Pretty
'A man can only take so much pretty walking back and forth in front of him.' He said pretty like he meant something else.”
Cara Hoffman, So Much Pretty
“How disposable is a woman's life? How expected. How unsurprising. How normal. How many times a week, a month, a year does that happen?”
Cara Hoffman, So Much Pretty
“This is shitty to say, but there's not much pathos involved in a case like that. Think about it: Little So-and-so the Fourth drowns himself Tuesday night after receiving his midterm grades in the school of civil engineering. The body goes back to Westchester, and a lounge in the library or a nature path gets named after him, and a bunch of blue-blood kids remember him fondly. Sorry. There's about one story a year like that. Poor Billy Fuckup, Jr., in his Gap khakis, the pressure of going to classes all day really got to him. If I were a better person, I would have felt badly having seen things like that.”
Cara Hoffman, So Much Pretty

“Suicide is now the leading cause of death for US service members and veterans, far outstripping combat-related deaths.”
Cara Hoffman, Be Safe I Love You: A Novel
“What's wrong with you, Daniel? How can you laugh about these things?" And I'm like, 'Cause crying only gets you halfway there, duh.”
Cara Hoffman, Be Safe I Love You
“Now that she’d done her own tour she could see a little bit of the war in him, his familiarity with silences, his drive, a reconciled sorrow that lifted the corners of his mouth in a kind of mocking self-abnegation. The weight of being alive, being a victim of the killing you’ve done.”
Cara Hoffman, Be Safe I Love You: A Novel
“Bridey found something transcendent in broken men; read them, not for signs of what they might do to her, but as if they were oracles revealing cracks in the barrier between one world and another.”
Cara Hoffman, Running
“She was either never or always afraid... She knew now that the difference between never and always was small. Never and always are separated by a wasp’s waist, a small sliver of safety glass, one bead of sweat; separated by the seven seconds it takes to exhale the air from your lungs, to make your body as still as the corpse you are about to create.”
Cara Hoffman, Be Safe I Love You
