Text Quotes
Crippled and crazy, we hobble toward the finish line, pen in hand  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) We chart delusions through collective agreement  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I have a tendency to face my bad fantasies in my books  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) We lose ourselves in stories; that’s the beauty of literary art  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Even in fiction, I feel rigorous honesty applies. It doesn’t apply to facts; it applies to what I think of as not telling emotional lies, which is a funny business.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) In August of 2002, I survived a car accident. Although I can still see the van speeding toward us, I cannot bring to mind the crash itself - only its aftermath.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) The mind-brain is lived only from a first-person perspective, and it is a dynamic, plastic organ that changes in relation to the environment.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) True stories can’t be told forward, only backward. We invent them from the vantage point of an ever-changing present and tell ourselves how they unfolded.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I am always suspicious of those who impose ‘rules’ on child rearing. Every child is different in terms of temperament and learning, and every parent responds to a particular child, not some generalized infant or youngster.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) As one of four daughters, I grew up with an imaginary brother - wondering what it would have been like if one of us had been a boy. There’s no question that there was a phantom boy child in my imagination when I was young.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Having children is one of the most passionate and involving bits of business in human life  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Neurobiological research has shown that in people with chronic PTSD, both stress hormone secretion and areas of the brain connected to memory function, such as the hippocampus, appear to be affected, although exactly how and why remains controversial.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) We live in a culture that is much happier talking about organic brain disease than about psychic illness because the former suggests that something that is physically wrong in a brain is wholly unrelated to that person’s upbringing or experiences in the world, but that is not necessarily true.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) The brain-mind is not a computer, and regarding it as one has led to a variety of theoretical dead ends.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I have suffered from migraines since childhood and have long been curious about my own aching head, my dizziness, my divine lifting feelings, my sparklers and black holes, and my single visual hallucination of a little pink man and a pink ox on the floor of my bedroom.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) When I taught writing classes to psychiatric patients, I met people whose stories of manic highs and immobilizing lows appeared to be textbook descriptions of classic bipolar disorder. I met other patients who had been diagnosed with myriad disorders. No doctor seemed to agree about what they actually suffered from.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Many scholars working in the humanities have already shown interest in brain research. For years, contemporary theory in the humanities has left the body and biology out of their discussions.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) There’s a phenomenology of being sick, one that depends on temperament, personal history, and the culture which we live in.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I watched ‘Holiday’ in college, and that was when I had my first fantasy of being Katharine Hepburn, standing at the top of the staircase in a huge Hollywood mansion.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) The English expression ‘to fall asleep’ is apt because the transition between waking and sleeping is a gradual drop from one state of being into another: a giving up of full self-consciousness for unconsciousness or for the altered consciousness of dreams.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I love making up visual works of art in language. I get to be an artist without actually being an artist in that sense.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Sleep resistance, bouts of insomnia, nightmares, night terrors, crawling into bed with parents in the middle of the night - all these are so common among children, it seems fair to call them ‘normal.’  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) The relationship between the imagined and the real is more complicated than people imagine  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Memory is essential to who we are, and memories can be both implicit and explicit - unconscious and conscious.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) When I don’t get enough sleep, I am cranky, vulnerable to headaches, and my concentration is poor.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) My greatest pleasure is spending time with my family: my husband and daughter, but also my mother, my three sisters, and their families.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) My feeling is, when you are writing an essay, you don’t make anything up. This may be a very Protestant notion, and I’m aware of the fact that memory is fallible, that if I had access to films or some absolute documentary evidence of what happened, it might look different; we get confused and fuzzy.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Far more women read fiction than men, and because of this, novels have become marginalised as serious texts.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) No matter how brilliant or accomplished they are, there is something emasculating for men in being pitted against a woman. It is even more true in creative fields already considered to be squishy and feminine, and it’s a big problem because great women have been left off the record.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) There was a film class in my high school in Northfield, Minnesota, which was very unusual. I saw my first Buster Keaton film there, aged about 15. It made a gigantic impression on me.  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes)
