Text Quotes
The past is a room full of baggage and rubbish and sometimes things that are of use, but if they are of real use, I have kept them  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) No matter how happy I had been in the past I do not long for it. The present is always the moment for which I love  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) ... yet a memory cannot be trusted, for so much of the experience of the past is determined by the experience of the present  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I love planting. I love digging holes, putting plants in, tapping them in. And I love weeding, but I don’t like tidying up the garden afterwards  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) The garden has taught me to live, to appreciate the times when things are fallow and when they’re not  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) When I’m writing, I think about the garden, and when I’m in the garden I think about writing. I do a lot of writing by putting something in the ground  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) One day I was living silently in a personal hell, without anyone to tell what I felt, without even knowing that the feelings I had were possible to have; and then one day I was not living like that at all. I had begun to see the past like this: there is a line; you can draw it yourself, or sometimes it gets drawn for you; either way, there it is, your past, a collection of people you used to be and things you used to do. Your past is the person you no longer are, the situations you are no longer in  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) He must have smiled at me, though I don’t really know, but I don’t like to think that I would love someone who hadn’t first smiled at me  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I would be lost without the feeling of antagonism that people have towards me. I write out of defiance  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I like to be in my pajamas all day. Sometimes I don’t wash for days because I like to read and sit around. I like to eat in bed  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) Express everything you like. No word can hurt you. None. No idea can hurt you. Not being able to express an idea or word will hurt you more. Like a bullet  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I can write anywhere. I actually wrote more than I ever did when I had small children. My children were never a hindrance  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I didn’t know it was possible to be successful as a writer, so I wasn’t afraid to fail  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I like melancholy. I like to pretend that I’m alone in the world and I’m just sort of abandoned  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I used to want to be a backup singer. Not a lead singer, because I really can’t sing  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I was given a dictionary when I was seven, and I read it because I had nothing else to read. I read it the way you read a book  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I write a lot in my head. The revision goes on internally. It’s not spontaneous and it doesn’t have a schedule  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) What distinguished my life from my brother’s is that my mother didn’t like me. When I became a woman, I seemed to repel her  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) The first step in claiming yourself is anger. You get mad. And you can’t do anything before you get angry. And I recommend getting very angry to everyone, anyone  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) I had come to feel that my mother’s love for me was designed solely to make me into an echo of her; and I didn’t know why, but I felt that I would rather be dead than become just an echo of someone  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) The shadow of my mother danced around the room to a tune that my own shadow sang  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) If I’d thought that nobody would like it as I was writing it, I would have written it even more. But I never think of the audience. I never think of people reading. I never think of people, period  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) It was hollow, my triumph, I could feel that, but I held on to it just the same  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) That is how I came to think that heavy and hard was the beginning of living, real living; and though I might not end up with a mark on my cheek, I had no doubt that I would end up with a mark somewhere  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes) The photograph of my brother that is in this album shows a young man, beautiful and perfect in the way of young people, for young people are always perfect and beautiful until they are not, until the moment they just are not  (Jamaica Kincaid Quotes)
