Text Quotes
Love is ... something extraordinary that happens to ordinary people.  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I love working alone. Crave it, in fact. I feel truly alive then.  (Anita Shreve Quotes) The pull of history has been a strong theme in my life as a novelist  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I have a Facebook page and a website. Beyond that, I’m actually a very private person. I’d rather see the focus on the books than on me.  (Anita Shreve Quotes) My favourite books series as a young child was the Frank L. Baum ‘Wizard of Oz’ series. They were beautifully written, oversized fat books with wonderful type and illustrations.  (Anita Shreve Quotes) Love is... something extraordinary that happens to ordinary people  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I got hit by the bug of reading - not via a person, but via the one-room library in our small town. I remember that the children’s books were in the right-hand corner near the floor. Often when I went there, I was the only visitor.  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I edit as I write. I revise endlessly. I don’t go forward until I know that what I’ve written is as good as I can make it.  (Anita Shreve Quotes) But how do you ever know that you know a person?  (Anita Shreve Quotes) WWI is a romantic war, in all senses of the word. An entire generation of men and women left the comforts of Edwardian life to travel bravely, and sometimes even jauntily, to almost certain death. At the very least, any story or novel about WWI is about innocence shattered in the face of experience.  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I have spent many hours on the beach collecting sea glass, and I almost always wonder, as I bend to pick up chunk of bottle green or a shard of meringue white, what the history of the glass was. Who used it? Was it a medicine bottle? A bit of a ship’s lantern? Is that bubbled piece of glass with the charred bits inside it from a fire?  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I learned that night that love is never as ferocious as when you think it is going to leave you. We are not always allowed this knowledge, and so our love sometimes becomes retrospective  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I can think of no other experience quite like that of being 20 or so pages into a book and realizing that this is the real thing: a book that is going to offer the delicious promise of a riveting story, arresting language and characters that will haunt me for days.  (Anita Shreve Quotes) To leave, after all, was not the same as being left  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I think about the hurt that stories cannot ease, not with a thousand tellings  (Anita Shreve Quotes) Is imagination dependent upon experience, or is experience influenced by imagination?  (Anita Shreve Quotes) And then she moved from shock to grief the way she might enter another room  (Anita Shreve Quotes) If you’re skating on thin ice, you might as well dance  (Anita Shreve Quotes) To be relieved of love, she thought, was to give up a terrible burden  (Anita Shreve Quotes) The enduring struggle to capture in words the infinite possibilities of a life not lived  (Anita Shreve Quotes) Once you tell your first lie, the first time you lie for him, you are in it with him, and then you are lost  (Anita Shreve Quotes) The difficulty lay with the mind accommodating itself to the notion of the plane, with all its weight, defying gravity, staying aloft. She understood the aerodynamics of flight, could comprehend the laws of physics that made flight possible, but her heart, at the moment, would have none of it. Her heart knew the plane could fall out of the sky  (Anita Shreve Quotes) Love is never as ferocious as when you think it’s going to leave you  (Anita Shreve Quotes) Sometimes it seems to me that all of life is a struggle to contain the natural impulses of the body and spirit, and that what we call character represents only the degree to which we are successful in this endeavor  (Anita Shreve Quotes) There are more experiences in life than you’d think for which there are no words  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I thought about how one tiny decision can change a life. A decision that takes only a split second to make  (Anita Shreve Quotes) A single action can cause a life to veer off in a direction it was never meant to go  (Anita Shreve Quotes) The things that don’t happen to us that we’ll never know didn’t happen to us. The nonstories. The extra minute to find the briefcase that makes you late to the spot where a tractor trailer mauled another car instead of yours. The woman you didn’t meet because she couldn’t get a taxi to the party you had to leave early from. All of life is a series of nonstories if you look at it that way. We just don’t know what they are  (Anita Shreve Quotes) Sometimes, she thought, courage was simply a matter of putting one foot in front of another and not stopping  (Anita Shreve Quotes) I have always been faithful to you if faithful means the experience against which everything else has been measured  (Anita Shreve Quotes)
