Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I could never hate you, even if I wanted to.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Gloaming,” Dad said. “What?” “That word I couldn’t remember. Gloaming. That short, murky time between half-light and dark.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Picasso sure had a thing for naked women. Why not draw them with their clothes on? Who sits around without a shirt on, plucking a mandolin? Why not draw naked guys, just to be fair? Naked women is art, naked men a no-no, I bet. Probably because most painters are men.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “You look like yourself. Nobody else. Trust me, that’s a good thing.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I was the reason she didn’t run away freshman year. I was the reason she didn’t eat a bottle of sleeping pills when her boyfriend cheated on her. I listened for hours when her parents yelled and tried to stuff her into a mannequin shell that didn’t fit. I understood what triggered her earthquakes, most of them.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “The winds of the desert have names. They feed on the bodies of broken children and rip out the beating hearts of men.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “What if a king made bad laws; laws so unnatural that a country broke them by declaring its freedom?” He threw his arms in the air. “Now you are spouting nonsense.

Not the same at all.” “How is it then that the British offer freedom to escaped slaves, but the Patriots don’t?”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Does being forced to sit in time-out ever make little kids stop putting cats in the dishwasher or drawing on white walls with purple marker? Of course not.

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Before the suffragettes came along, women were treated like dogs... They were dolls, with no thoughts, or opinions, or voices of their own. Then the suffragettes marched in, full of loud, in-your-face ideas. They got arrested and thrown in jail, but nothing shut them up. They fought and fought until they earned the rights they should’ve had all along.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Just in case we forget that “weareheretogetagoodfoundation sowecangotocollegeliveuptoourpotentialgetagoodjoblivehap pilyeverafterandgotoDisneyWorld,” we have a Job Day.”
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?”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Keep home in your heart, where no one can steal it.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “This is not our fight,′ the old man said. ‘British or American, that is not the choice. You must choose your own side, find your road through the valley of darkness that will lead you to the river Jordan.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Fracture lines etch the surface of the glass box as if a body fell from the sky and landed on it. He doesn’t hear the impact, can’t smell the blood.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “I’ve got a cake rising,” Eliza said. “I’m not leaving that for any man.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “The girl reflected back from the window in front of me has poinsettias growing out of her belly and head. She’s the shape of a breakfast-link sausage standing on broomstick legs, her arms made from twigs, her face blurred with an eraser. I know that this is me, but it’s not me, not really. I don’t know what I look like. I can’t remember how to look.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “That feeling in your stomach when you hear him whispering off-key, down the hall. That way your heart trips and then hammers against your ribs when he sees you and he grins like a little kid at the top of a steep, shiny-hot slide. Call it hormones, an early-stage bacterial zombie infection, or a very pleasant dream I was experiencing; I didn’t care. I liked That.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “No wonder the zombies were crazy. They thought they were supposed to practice breeding before they learned how to do their own laundry. They talked about it, thought about it, maybe did it, all while going through the motions of attending class and learning stuff so that they could go forth and become productive adults. Whatever that was supposed to mean.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “The bruises are vivid, but they will fade.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “Maybe that was why I wanted to slap so many of the zombies; they had no idea how freaking lucky they were. Lucky and ignorant, happy little rich kids who believed in Santa Claus and the tooth fairy and thought that life was supposed to be fair.”

Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “My timing is perfect, and I wind up in a traffic jam. The cars around me are driven by fat cows and bellowing bulls. We roll along, six mph. I can run faster than this. We brake. They chew their cud and moo into their phones until the herd shifts gears and rolls forward again.”
Laurie Halse Anderson Quote: “The good soldier swears to kill. Fire the cannon, mount the barricade, lock and load. Smell your brother’s blood on your shirt. Wipe your sister’s brains off your face. Die, if you have to, so they’ll live. Kill to keep your people alive, live to kill some more.”
