Text Quotes
By and large, the Mexican food in Paris is horrible  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) Rosecrans is a family name - it used to be a last name in our family  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) That’s the thing: once it’s in their hands, it’s not my book anymore, it’s theirs. I have no idea what happens when they start to digest it. So when someone writes me to explain how they read it, what it was like, what they enjoyed, there’s a thrill. Writers who don’t make their email addresses public are missing out on something wonderful.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) Machismo requires Latin blood. I’d say I never experienced machismo up close until I worked in a French office; the typical Wall Street gunner has the soul of a coffee filter in comparison.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) My first novel, ‘You Lost Me There,’ has been described as a beach read. Tough bracket, beach reads. There’s not much room for mistakes when you’re competing against the sun for a person’s attention.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) France and America have a long history of mutual loathing and longing. Americans still dream of Paris; Parisians still dream of the America they find in the movies of David Lynch.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) My grandmother died from Alzheimer’s, and it was a big shock. For the families left behind, it is not an easy closure. It’s not a gradual fading. The person is losing so much of their humanity as they’re dying. Losing your memories, you lose so much of who you are as a person.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) My ambition was to be cosmopolitan. I grew up in the suburbs. I went to college in Maine. I had a dream in my head that if you wanted to be the most urbane, living-life-to-the-fullest kind of person, Paris was the place to be.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) My father-in-law has ear hair like a wolverine. It fans out from the auricles, wafting from the ridge lines like cilia, like gray feathered plumage.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) Venice, Italy, is one of my favorite cities, a place I’ve been lucky enough to visit twice  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) When I went to Paris, I had a lot of ideas about it that were formed in the sort of ether that flows about if you watch too many recent Woody Allen movies or took French classes as a kid. I was certainly full of those.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) Tintin comics evoke Bermuda, where my parents doled out comics for good behavior and my grandmother taught me how to shuffle cards.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) The great thing about candy is that it can’t be spoiled by the adult world. Candy is innocent. And all Halloween candy pales next to candy corn, if only because candy corn used to appear, like the Great Pumpkin, solely on Halloween.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) If I see a roll of Bubble Tape, a bag of Haribo Gold-Bears or a pouch of green-apple Big League Chew, I’m eleven again.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) No one really knows the value of book tours. Whether or not they’re good ideas, or if they improve book sales. I happen to think the author is the last person you’d want to talk to about a book. They hate it by that point; they’ve already moved on to a new lover. Besides, the author never knows what the book is about anyway.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) I never had the idea of moving to Paris and becoming something. I liked the idea of living in Paris because it seemed to have so many parts of life I really enjoyed. The people there seemed to prize literature and art, food and drinking, a more hedonistic way of living.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) I actually don’t think there is machismo in America, unless it’s the cowboy type - the silent, smoking brooder  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) Heads of France lead from a palace, and traditionally they retire to a cloud  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) For years, I’ve felt an obligation to harvest an animal, since all my life I’ve so mindlessly consumed them. But that was from the safety of my desk  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) Bookstores don’t exactly dot the American highway in the grand manner of Sbarros  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) American-French relations, their pitch and volume, have always been influenced by the media  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) Thanksgiving, our eminent moral holiday, doesnt have much for children. At its heart are conversation, food, drink, and fellowship - all perks of adulthood  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) I was 23 when I learned how to cook; I grew up around the same time. It was precisely then that Thanksgiving started to mean something more. Growing up, Christmas was always about me, and eventually you, when I finally started to enjoy the giving part. But Thanksgiving is always about us  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) That’s when I began drinking coffee. I was hung up on every little thing. I loved Paris, and felt straightaway at home. Not to be grandiose, but it seemed like all the city had been waiting for me  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) In college, my wife did a study abroad in Nairobi, and I did the exact same program in Cape Town. For me, the experience of being in that other culture really set up a longing. When I’m traveling, things seem really sharp. You learn things ten times faster  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) For years, I’ve felt an obligation to harvest an animal, since all my life I’ve so mindlessly consumed them. But that was from the safety of my desk.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) I can’t picture going to a beach, or anywhere on vacation, without a couple of books as companions.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) I think one of my favorite things about Paris is the ever-present, nonstop beauty of the city. So I would just walk as much as possible.  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes) The best thing about candy is that it can’t be spoiled by the adult world. Candy is innocent  (Rosecrans Baldwin Quotes)
