Text Quotes
Time erodes us all  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Writing’s a great skill, but thinking’s a better one  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) I’ve been fired five times for having a bad attitude  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) I’ve spent most of my life trying to wear a persona that didn’t quite fit and when I started writing books, it was like finally becoming the right person.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) I’ve noticed that the magic getting along with someone isn’t really magic. If you break it down, you can see how it happens. You say something a bit off-center and see if they react. If they get it, they push it a bit further. Then it’s your turn again. And theirs. And so on, until it’s banter. Once it’s banter, it’s friendship  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) I always think plot is what you fall back on if you can’t write, to keep things going  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) The average attention span of the modern human being is about half as long as whatever you’re trying to tell them.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) The soldier had stamped my passport FAMILY in heavy black capital letters and I checked it now for reassurance and because I liked how fierce the word looked  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) After all this time, I know exactly where I belong. Here. With Edmond. And that’s how I live now.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Self-knowledge is essential not only to writing, but to doing almost anything really well. It allows you to work through from a deep place - from the deep, dark corners of your subconscious mind  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Your writing voice is the deepest possible reflection of who you are. The job of your voice is not to seduce or flatter or make well-shaped sentences. In your voice, your readers should be able to hear the contents of your mind, your heart, your soul  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) It was love, of course, though I didn’t know it then and Finn was both its subject and object. He accepted love instinctively, without responsibility or conditions, like a wild thing glimpsed through trees  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) She frowned at him. ‘You are in love with solitude.’ ‘Is there a better cure for the world than solitude?  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Osbert was the only one who didn’t seem suspicious. He was so interested in the Decline of Western Civilization that he missed the version of it taking place under his nose  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) There’s an overwhelming sense of paranoia in the suburbs. People there seem so much more paranoid to me than people in the city about their kids being kidnapped or their parties being raided or their drinks being spiked. There’s a kind of hysteria about that.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) The truth about love is that you don’t always fall in love with whom you are supposed to fall in love with. Love just hits you. It is a transcendent thing. Sometimes it is your best friend’s husband and sometimes it’s your father. It’s weird. But that’s a fact of life.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) It’s hard recommending books for kids, and a huge responsibility. If you get it wrong, they don’t tell you they hate that particular book, they tell you they hate reading.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) I’m constantly snatching my books out of the hands of precocious ten-year-olds who are simply too young to read them, despite parents insisting that dear Octavia has a reading age of 28. I remember trying to read ‘In Cold Blood’ at the age of twelve, and realising that just because you can read book doesn’t mean you should.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) People talk about writing convincing teenagers like it’s a really clever thing to do, but it comes incredibly naturally to me. Which, of course, is slightly a worry.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Contrary to popular belief, editors and agents are gagging for good books  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Although I’ve lived in England for more than twenty years, I still have a foreigner’s passion for all the details of English history and rural life.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) The things that break your heart when you think there`s nothing left to break  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) I am quite a cheerful, dark person. On the outside, I’m optimistic but I expect the worst to happen.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) And still the brain continues to yearn, continues to burn, foolishly, with desire. My old man’s brain is mocked by a body that still longs to stretch in the sun and form a beautiful shape in someone else’s gaze, to lie under a blue sky and dream of helpless, selfless love, to behold itself, illuminated, in the golden light of another’s eyes.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) I didn’t seem to have that effect on anyone but it would have been a waste for both of us to be saints.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) One of the more interesting things I’ve learnt since becoming a writer is that if you like the book, you’ll generally like the person. It doesn’t always work in reverse - there are huge numbers of lovely people out there writing not very good books.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) My younger sister Debby had died of cancer, which started me writing - the sense of life being short. Cancer focuses your mind.  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Staying alive was what we did to pass the time  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Ask any comedian, tennis player, chef. Timing is everything  (Meg Rosoff Quotes) Every war has turning points and every person too  (Meg Rosoff Quotes)
