Michael Stein quotes (showing 1-8 of 8)

“When she was younger, she felt that he wanted to know everything about her, but she was sometimes afraid to tell too much. She was afraid he would know her too well, that he would find some weakness in her, some element that would turn him away, maybe even a quality she didn't even realize she possessed.”
Michael Stein
“If I have you for a day, I'll want you for a week. If I have you for a week, I'll want you for another week.”
Michael Stein, In the Age of Love
“What can ever equal the memory of being young together?”
Michael Stein, In the Age of Love
“How often had she wondered what would have happened if she'd remained with Jonathan? Not often, but regularly over the years. It was impossible not to have imagined that rejected future, a life of many countries, of vast and enduring adventure, of tiny rooms and rental houses. It was the sense of missed opportunity that returned to her, frightening but real, overwhelmingly real.”
Michael Stein, In the Age of Love
“He was proud of her, he admired her, and at that moment he was conscious of life as something good and he fell in love with her all over again. This consciousness of love took the form of a deep patience inhabiting him, rather than a feeling of cheer or even hope”
Michael Stein, In the Age of Love
“Today, it felt like time should be measured by how much of the future she had left, and needed to be counted forward. She felt proud listening, as if somehow Jonathan Parish's speech reflected on her, as if she could take credit for some part of it, for him.”
Michael Stein
“It's not enough that you move through the world - you must change it to suit your expectations.”
Michael Stein, In the Age of Love
“The nineteenth century is called the century of hygiene, and the twentieth is the century of medicine. The twenty-first century may be the century of behavioral change. Changing everyday, long-term behaviors--how we exercise, what we eat--is the key to adding years and quality to our lives.”
Michael Stein
