Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “It is my first morning of high school. I have seven new notebooks, a skirt I hate, and a stomachache.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I scared myself, because once you’ve thought long and hard enough about doing something that is colossally stupid, you feel like you’ve actually done it, and then you’re never quite sure what your limits are.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “So, she tells me, the words dribbling out with the cranberry muffin crumbs, commas dunked in her coffee.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I want to be in fifth grade again. Now, that is a deep dark secret, almost as big as the other one. Fifth grade was easy – old enough to play outside without Mom, too young to go off the block. The perfect leash length.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I doubt trees are ever told to ‘be the screwed-up ninth-grader.’”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Art without emotion is like chocolate cake without sugar. It makes you gag.” “When people don’t express themselves, they die one piece at a time”.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “If an entire nation could seek its freedom, why not a girl?”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Too much sun after a Syracuse winter does strange things to your head, makes you feel strong, even if you aren’t.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “There is a beast in my gut, I can hear it scraping away at the inside of my ribs. Even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me. My closest is a good thing, a quiet place that helps me hold these thoughts inside my head where no one can hear them.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I failed eating, failed drinking, failed not cutting myself into shreds. Failed friendship. Failed sisterhood and daughterhood. Failed mirrors and scales and phone calls. Good thing I’m stable.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Do I want to die from the inside out or the outside in?”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “We have to acknowledge that adolescence is that time of transition where we begin to introduce to children that life isn’t pretty, that there are difficult things, there are hard situations, it’s not fair. Bad things happen to good people.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “If you don’t learn art now, you will never learn to breathe!!!”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Plants make way more seeds than they need, because they know that life is not perfect and all the seeds won’t make it.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I know my head isn’t screwed on straight. I want to leave, transfer, warp myself to another galaxy. I want to confess everything, hand over the guilt and mistake and anger to someone else. There is a beast in my gut, I can hear it scraping away at the inside of my ribs. Even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me. My closest is a good thing, a quiet place that helps me hold these thoughts inside my head where no one can hear them.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I just thought of a great theory that explains everything. When I went to that party, I was abducted by aliens. They have created a fake Earth and fake high school to study me and my reactions. This certainly explains cafeteria food.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Slush is frozen over. People say that winter lasts forever, but it’s because they obsess over the thermometer. North in the mountains, the maple syrup is trickling. Brave geese punch through the thin ice left on the lake. Underground, pale seeds roll over in their sleep. Starting to get restless. Starting to dream green.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I can see us, living in the woods, her wearing that A, me with a S maybe, S for silent, S for stupid, for scared. S for silly. For shame.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I’m just tired and I can’t sleep yet. A woman’s work is never done, isn’t that what the fools say?”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “One of the seeds has split its shell and reaches a white hand upward. An apple tree growing from an apple seed growing in an apple. I show the little plantseed to Ms. Keen. She gives me extra credit. David rolls his eyes. Biology is so cool.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “We should teach our girls that snapping is ok, instead of waiting for someone else to break them.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I knew I wouldn’t get an invitation. I would be lucky to get an invitation to my own funeral, with my reputation.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “The only number that would ever be enough is 0. Zero pounds, zero life, size zero, double-zero, zero point. Zero in tennis is love. I finally get it.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “It would have eased her mind if I thanked her for wanting to buy me away from Madam. I tried to be grateful but could not. A body does not like being bought and sold like a basket of eggs, even if the person who cracks the shells is kind.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Had she ever enjoyed anything? Had every day been a struggle? Perhaps death would be a release, a rest for the weary.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “The suffragettes were all about speaking up, screaming for their rights. You can’t speak up for your right to be silent.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I try to read while eating alone, but the noise gets between my eyes and the page and I can’t see through it.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I want to make a memorial for our turkey. Never has a bird been so tortured to provide such a lousy dinner.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “There is something about Christmas that requires a rug rat. Little kids make Christmas fun. I wonder if could rent one for the holidays.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I lean into the mirror. Eyes after eyes after eyes stare back at me. Am I in there somewhere? A thousand eyes blink.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Flames curled out of all the windows next door. The rooftop beyond that was a lake of fire. Every building in sight was burning. The air was filled with crackling and popping sounds, with shrieks and screams coming from the street below.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “This is the story of a girl who lost her voice and wrote herself a new one.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I am not going to think about it. It was ugly, but it’s over, and I’m not going to think about it.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “They keep asking questions like “What is wrong with you?” and “Do you think this is cute?” How can I answer? I don’t have to. They don’t want to hear anything I have to say.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “My earbuds were in, but I wasn’t playing music. I needed to hear the world but didn’t want the world to know I was listening.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I have survived. I am here. Confused, screwed up, but here.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “The one good thing about being kind of shy is that nobody bugs you when you want to be left alone.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “When one suffers, all are weakened, but when everyone thrives, we dance.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Welcome to the only class that will teach you how to survive. Welcome to Art.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “So why does everyone make such a big hairy deal about me not talking? Maybe I don’t want to incriminate myself. Maybe I don’t like the sound of my voice. Maybe I don’t have anything to say.”
