“We felt that we were a portrait on the wall, more invisible the longer it had been in its location”
TaraShea Nesbit, The Wives of Los Alamos

“Or, for one of our mothers, the secret to a good marriage, she said, was sex.”
TaraShea Nesbit, The Wives of Los Alamos

“Before we got married we asked our grandfathers, whose own marriages had lasted forty years or more, "What is the secret to a happy marriage? And they paused, looked down at their chicken salad, and said, 'You really have to like each other. After the attraction, you really have to like the person.'" ...our mothers tolds us...ask him how his day was. Take an interest in his profession.”
TaraShea Nesbit , The Wives of Los Alamos

“The victim who is able to articulate the situation of the victim has ceased to be a victim: he or she has become a threat.”
James Baldwin

“For we all of us, grave or light, get our thoughts entangled in metaphors, and act fatally on the strength of them.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

“It is an uneasy lot at best, to be what we call highly taught and yet not to enjoy: to be present at this great spectacle of life and never to be liberated from a small hungry shivering self—never to be fully possessed by the glory we behold, never to have our consciousness rapturously transformed into the vividness of a thought, the ardor of a passion, the energy of an action, but always to be scholarly and uninspired, ambitious and timid, scrupulous and dim-sighted.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch
