Quotes by Karen Cushman  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I watched the early morning light pass over and through the windows of colored glass, leaving streaks of red and green and yellow on the stone floor. When I was little, I used to try and capture the colored light. I thought I could hold it in my hand and carry it home. Now I know it is like happiness-- it is there or it is not, you cannot hold it or keep it.”
Karen Cushman, Catherine, Called Birdy

“Just because you don't know everything don't mean you know nothing.”
Karen Cushman, The Midwife's Apprentice

“Corpus Bones! I utterly loathe my life.”
Karen Cushman, Catherine, Called Birdy
