Margaret Atwood Quote: “Your hand is a warm stone I hold between two words.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “Our problem right now is that we’re so specialized that if the lights go out, there are a huge number of people who are not going to know what to do. But within every dystopia there’s a little utopia.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “When did the body first set out on its own adventures? Snowman thinks; after having ditched its old travelling companions, the mind and the soul, for whom it had once been considered a mere corrupt vessel or else a puppet acting out their dramas for them, or else bad company, leading the other two astray.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “If a stranger taps you on the ass and says, “How’s the little lady today!” you will probably cringe. But if he’s an American, he’s only being friendly.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “If you get hungry enough, they say, you start eating your own heart.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “There remains a mirror, on the hall wall. If I turn my head so that the white wings framing my face direct my vision towards it, I can see it as I go down the stairs, round, convex, a pier-glass, like the eye of a fish, and myself in it like a distorted shadow, a parody of something, some fairytale figure in a red cloak, descending towards a moment of carelessness that is the same as danger. A Sister, dipped in blood.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “Every month there is a moon, gigantic, round, heavy, an omen. IT transits, pauses, continues on and passes out of sight, and I see despair coming towards me like famine.

Margaret Atwood Quote: “I’m a refugee from the past, and like other refugees I go over the customs and habits of being I’ve left or been forced to leave behind me, and it all seems just as quaint, from here, and I am just as obsessive about it.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “Death makes me hungry. Maybe it’s because I’ve been emptied; or maybe it’s the body’s way of seeing to it that I remain alive, continue to repeat its bedrock prayer: I am, I am. I am, still.”

Margaret Atwood Quote: “Money was the only measure of worth, for everyone, they got no respect as mothers.”

Margaret Atwood Quote: “A home filled with nothing but yourself. It’s heavy, that lightness. It’s crushing, that emptiness.”

Margaret Atwood Quote: “I sit in the chair and think about the word chair. It can also mean the leader of a meeting. It can also mean a mode of execution. It is the first syllable in charity. It is the French word for flesh. None of these facts has any connection with the others. These are the kinds of litanies I use, to compose myself.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “I don’t want a man around, what use are they except for ten seconds’ worth of half babies.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “But a chair, sunlight, flowers: these are not to be dismissed. I am alive, I live, I breathe, I put my hand out, unfolded, into the sunlight.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “How easy it is to invent a humanity, for anyone at all. What an available temptation.”

Margaret Atwood Quote: “You say, The sensed absence of God and the sensed presence amount to much the same thing, only in reverse.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “I’ve become swollen with power, true, but also nebulous with it – formless, shape-shifting. I am everywhere and nowhere: even in the minds of the Commanders I cast an unsettling shadow. How can I regain myself? How to shrink back to my normal size, the size of an ordinary woman?”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “It’s an event, a small defiance of rule, so small as to be undetectable, but such moments are the rewards I hold out for myself, like the candy I hoarded, as a child, at the back of a drawer. Such moments are possibilities, tiny peepholes.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “I know why there is no glass, in front of the watercolor picture of blue irises, and why the window opens only partly and why the glass in it is shatter-proof. It isn’t running away they’re afraid of. We wouldn’t get far. It’s those other escapes, the ones you can open in yourself, given a cutting edge.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “Starlet sex scandal. Giant squid involved.”

Margaret Atwood Quote: “There is something subversive about this garden of Serena’s, a sense of buried things bursting upwards, wordlessly, into the light, as if to point, to say: Whatever is silenced will clamor to be heard, though silently.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “But most hearts say, I want, I want, I want, I want. My heart is more duplicitous, though no twin as I once thought. It says, I want, I don’t want, I want, and then a pause. It forces me to listen...”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “Inside the peach, there is a stone.”
Margaret Atwood Quote: “But I was the daughter of a Naiad. Behave like water, I told myself. Don’t try to oppose them. When they try to grasp you, slip through their fingers. Flow around them.”
