Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Shut your trap, button your lip, can it. All that crap you hear on TV about communication and expressing feelings is a lie.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I handed my tools. The two of them reached down to help me out of the crater I’d dug. ″Isn’t that a little deep?″ Yoda asked. ″It’ll help the roots get established,″ I explained. ″Established where? China?”

Gracie’s parents didn’t have anything like that to deal with, but their daughter was falling apart on the bathroom floor.”

I think the Merryweather cheerleaders confuse me because I missed out on Sunday School. It has to be a miracle. There is no other explanation. How else could they sleep with the football team on Saturday night and be reincarnated as virginal goddesses on Monday?”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Maybe your son didn’t get that job because he’s not good enough. Or he’s lazy. Or the other guy was better than him, no matter what his skin color. I think the white people who have been here for two hundred years are the ones pulling down the country. They don’t know how to work – they’ve had it too easy.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I knew how much it hurt to be the daughter of people who can’t see you, not even if you are standing in front of them stomping your feet.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Cubism. Seeing beyond what is on the surface. Moving both eyes and a nose to the side of the face. Dicing bodies and tables and guitars as if they were celery sticks, and rearranging them so that you have to really see them to see them.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I would never be popular. I didn’t want to be; I liked being shy. I’d never be the smartest or the hottest or the happiest. By eighth grade you start to figure out your limits.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “It’s amazing any thing survives.”
