Text Quotes
It is the mind that speaks a woman’s heart, not the vaginal walls  (Mary Roach Quotes) I had a bike accident a few years ago, and I went to the emergency room, and I had to have a gash sewn up. And I am the kind of person that I was sitting up fascinated, watching, to the extent that the doctor said, ‘Do you want to do a couple of stitches? You seem to be very interested.’  (Mary Roach Quotes) I could have had a session of defecography, which is a diagnostic test in which X-rays are taken to assess anatomical problems occurring during the process of defecation. I gave it the briefest of thoughts before recognizing that this is beyond the pale - even for me.  (Mary Roach Quotes) Follow your instincts. Do the kind of writing you love to do and do best. ‘Stiff’ was an oddball book - I mean, a funny book about cadavers? - and I worried that it would be too unconventional. In the end, that’s what has made it a success, I think.  (Mary Roach Quotes) I’m always imposing my taste in books on others. I hope that people enjoy being surprised by a book they might not otherwise read - I enjoy the surprise myself when others do this to me.  (Mary Roach Quotes) I write with a sense of my future readers being ever on the verge of setting down the book and pronouncing it a bore. Fear and insecurity are great motivators.  (Mary Roach Quotes) I make lists to keep my anxiety level down. If I write down 15 things to be done, I lose that vague, nagging sense that there are an overwhelming number of things to be done, all of which are on the brink of being forgotten.  (Mary Roach Quotes) I don’t know of many people who’ve done sex research with an eye toward people saying sex is bad for you, except for the promiscuity and cervical cancer link - which is actually a valid discovery.  (Mary Roach Quotes) People don’t appreciate their intestines until something goes wrong. But I always hope that people gain a little appreciation for their guts.  (Mary Roach Quotes) Saliva has antibacterial properties. It also has things called nerve growth factor, skin growth factor, histatins which help with wound closure. So when you see an animal licking a wound or even a mom kissing a child’s boo-boo, there’s some, there’s some good science behind why one might do this.  (Mary Roach Quotes) Most of us pass our lives never once laying eyes on our own organs, the most precious and amazing things we own. Until something goes wrong, we barely give them thought. This seems strange to me. How is it that we find Christina Aguilera more interesting than the inside of our own bodies?  (Mary Roach Quotes) I’ve read plenty of amazing science pieces where the writers don’t hang out in labs. I just have fun doing it. And I get rewarded for it; I get gushy, especially when kids tell me they expected to be bored by my books, but weren’t.  (Mary Roach Quotes) I don’t fear death so much as I fear its prologues: loneliness, decrepitude, pain, debilitation, depression, senility. After a few years of those, I imagine death presents like a holiday at the beach.  (Mary Roach Quotes) When I was a kid, I hated everything. I was really skinny, and I’d have a milkshake with an egg in it. Growing up, I ate, like, five different foods. I was not an adventurous eater. But as soon as I left home, that all changed and from that point on, I’ve been a pretty enthusiastic eater of new and strange food  (Mary Roach Quotes) Weightlessness was unbelievable. It’s physical euphoria: Nothing about you has any weight. You don’t realize that you are weighed down all the time by yourself, and your organs, and your head. Your arms weigh down your shoulders. In space simulation, you get to fly like Superman! You’re hanging in the air! It’s the coolest thing  (Mary Roach Quotes) We exist in this weirdly schizo culture, where sex is everywhere in the media, and yet, at the same time, you don’t sit down and have a conversation about what you did in bed last night with your friends. Despite the ubiquity of sex, it’s still a taboo when it comes to day-to-day conversation  (Mary Roach Quotes) Though it’s harder to justify the use of a cadaver for practicing nose jobs than it is for practicing coronary bypasses, it is justifiable nonetheless. Cosmetic surgery exists, for better or for worse, and it’s important, for the sake of those who undergo it, that the surgeons who do it are able to do it well  (Mary Roach Quotes) A fine book, in the perfect setting, when there’s all the time in the world to read it: Life holds greater joys, but none come to mind just now.  (Mary Roach Quotes) Editors are more concerned with the first chapters of a book; that’s what everyone reads first in the bookstore or in the online sample.  (Mary Roach Quotes) When I was 16, I had a job on the cleaning crew at a local hospital. I wore a pink uniform and cleaned bathrooms and buffed the hallway linoleum. Oddly, I don’t recall hating the job. I recall getting choked up at the end of the summer when I went to turn in my uniform and say goodbye to the ladies.  (Mary Roach Quotes) It seems odd to think of tasting without any perceptive experience, but you are doing it right now. Humans have taste receptor cells in the gut, the voice box, the upper esophagus. But only the tongue’s receptors report to the brain.  (Mary Roach Quotes) Chew on this: Human teeth can detect a grain of sand or grit 10 microns in diameter. A micron is 1/25,000 of an inch. If you shrank a Coke can until it was the diameter of a human hair, the letter O in the product name would be about 10 microns across.  (Mary Roach Quotes) I used to do my best thinking while staring out airplane windows. The seat-back video system put a stop to that. Now I sit and watch old’ Friends’ and ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ episodes. Walking is good, but here again, technology has interfered. I like to listen to iTunes while I walk home. I guess I don’t think anymore.  (Mary Roach Quotes) The writing is always the easy part, provided I can get the good material. It’s the getting of the good material that’s a challenge.  (Mary Roach Quotes) If you get a colonoscopy, you should really insist they give you no drugs - then you do get to see what it’s like to swim through your own intestines.  (Mary Roach Quotes) Animals’ taste systems are specialized for the niche they occupy in the environment. That includes us. As hunters and foragers of the dry savannah, our earliest forebears evolved a taste for important but scarce nutrients: salt and high-energy fats and sugars. That, in a nutshell, explains the widespread popularity of junk food.  (Mary Roach Quotes) It is interesting to come across people who feel that a ghost communicating via a spell-checker is less far-fetched than a software glitch.  (Mary Roach Quotes) It’s this mood, these sentiments - the excitement of exploration and the surprises and delights of travel to foreign locales - that I hope to inspire with this book.  (Mary Roach Quotes) When someone tells me, ‘Oh, we have so many problems on Earth; space exploration costs too much money,’ I say, ‘I absolutely agree with you. But I still hope we do it.’  (Mary Roach Quotes) If I couldn’t use food or love to define contentment, I would use reading  (Mary Roach Quotes)
