He wanted, somehow to set me free. He didn’t want to burn my photo or toss it away, but he didn’t want to look at me anymore, either  (Alice Sebold Quotes) But, he also said it because part of him wanted more of her, this cold woman who was not exactly cold, this rock who was not stone  (Alice Sebold Quotes) I had rescued the moment by using my camera and in that way had found how to stop time and hold it.

A language they do not speak  (Alice Sebold Quotes) I was trying to prove to them and to myself that I was still who I had always been. I was beautiful, if fat. I was smart, if loud. I was good, if ruined  (Alice Sebold Quotes) So there are cakes and pillows and colors galore, but underneath this more obvious patchwork quilt are places like a quiet room where you can go and hold someone’s hand and not have to say anything  (Alice Sebold Quotes) I would like to tell you that I am, and you will one day be, forever safe  (Alice Sebold Quotes) Since then I’ve always thought that under rape in the dictionary it should tell the truth. It is not just forcible intercourse; rape means to inhabit and destroy everything  (Alice Sebold Quotes) After telling the hard facts to anyone from lover to friend, I have changed in their eyes.

Held us heavily and desperately, the doors of his heart opening and closing with the rapidity of stops on an instrument, the quiet felt closures, the ghostly fingering, practice and practice and then, incredibly, sound and melody and warmth  (Alice Sebold Quotes) And there she was, alone and walking out in the cornfield while everyone else I cared for sat together in one room. She would always feel me and think of me. I could see that, but there was no longer anything I could do. Ruth had been a girl haunted and now she would be a woman haunted.

All of it, the story of my life and death, was hers if she chose tot ell it, even to one person at a time  (Alice Sebold Quotes) The dead are never exactly seen by the living, but many people seem acutely aware of something changed around them. They speak of a chill in the air.
