Text Quotes
A blind man can see how much I love you  (Amy Bloom Quotes) You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Aging is a chance to make what was good, great; and what was never so good, better  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Sophisticated readers understand that writers work out their anger, their conflicts, their endless grief and rolling list of loss, through their stories. That however mean-spirited or diabolical, it’s only a story. That the darkness in the soul is shaped into type and lies there, brooding and inert, black on the page, and active, dangerous, only in the reader’s mind. Actually, harmless. I am not harmless  (Amy Bloom Quotes) To hold happiness is to hold the understanding that the world passes away from us, that the petals fall and the beloved dies. No amount of mockery, no amount of fashionable scowling will keep any of us from knowing and savoring the pleasure of the sun on our faces or save us from the adult understanding that it cannot last forever  (Amy Bloom Quotes) It is a wonderful, moving, heart-filling experience to sit with the man or woman you love and your beloved children and know that all are happy to be just where they are with each other and loving one another. This doesnt happen very often  (Amy Bloom Quotes) My grandmother tended to divide life into ‘nice’ and ‘not so nice.’ Life in America, her apartment, her grandchildren: ‘nice’ life before 1915: ‘not so nice.’ That’s all I heard.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) The library is every child’s lighthouse. It is every person’s sanctuary. It is every town and county’s fortress in the face of ignorance, intrusion and bad behavior.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) If you’re an American reader, you can love short stories the way other Americans love baseball; this is our game, people! We have more than two hundred years of know-how and knack, of creativity.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) My ideal meal varies, depending on the time of year. Lobster on a deck overlooking a beach at sunset is one - but all my kids have to be there, because they are all lobster-lovers. Making a bolognese sauce over pappardelle for my husband on a winter evening, because he loves my bolognese sauce and it’s his comfort food.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) The real problem with happiness is neither its pursuers nor their books; it’s happiness itself. Happiness is like beauty: part of its glory lies in its transience.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Bad people doing bad things is not interesting. What I find interesting is good people doing bad things  (Amy Bloom Quotes) My mother’s favorite photograph was one of herself at twenty-four years old, unbearably beautiful, utterly glamorous, in a black-straw cartwheel hat, dark-red lipstick, and a smart black suit, her notepad on a cocktail table. I know nothing about that woman.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) When I was a little girl, I thought I was Sydney Carton in Dickens’ ‘A Tale of Two Cities.’ I don’t think anyone else did.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) I do have a sister. I have never written much about sisters before. I am very close to my sister, but, maybe, because we are very close, it never occurred to me to write about her.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) I do my business in the morning, and then at 2 P.M., I write fiction for the rest of the day. I like my husband, so I don’t work at weekends.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) My family kept its history to itself. On the plus side, I didn’t have to hear nightmarish stories about the Holocaust, the pogroms, terrible illnesses, painful deaths. My elderly parents never even spoke about their ailments.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Lucky Us’ ends with a description of a photograph of the novel’s fictional family. I could never get enough of my own family photo albums.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Nonfiction is both easier and harder to write than fiction. It’s easier because the facts are already laid out before you, and there is already a narrative arc. What makes it harder is that you are not free to use your imagination and creativity to fill in any missing gaps within the story.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) My sister and I used to act as maids and waitresses at my great aunt and uncle’s cocktail parties, which were very much sort of retired, minor stars of the Yiddish theater and the Yiddish opera.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) The great pleasure for me in writing short stories is the fierce, elegant challenge  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Smart people often talk trash about happiness and worse than trash about books on happiness, and they have been doing so for centuries - just as long as other people have been pursuing happiness and writing books about it.  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Learning to listen, letting people finish their sentences, and most of all, the habit of noticing the difference between what people say and how they say it. {on the habits of psychoanalytic training and practice applied to fiction writing} The gap between what people tell you and what’s really going on is what interests me  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Intimacy is being seen and known as the person you truly are  (Amy Bloom Quotes) There is no such thing as a good writer and a bad liar  (Amy Bloom Quotes) You cannot fake effort; talent is great, but perseverance is necessary  (Amy Bloom Quotes) They danced as though they’d been waiting all their lives for each song  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Be real and unashamed. Even of your faults  (Amy Bloom Quotes) Men do not know what they do not know, and women should not tell them  (Amy Bloom Quotes)
