Sliver Sayings By Susan D. Kalior: You are lovable as you are. Be kind to yourself. You are an original standing You are lovable as you are. Be kind to yourself. You are an original standing alone, yet a collective that is everyone. Everyone is okay, including you. No one need change, but if you seek modification, require it from no other. If you change, those around you will change, as they are reflections of yourself. One person transforming, changes the world, even if only a sliver. — Susan D. Kalior

Sliver Sayings By Shauna Niequist: Bittersweet is the idea that in all things there is both something broken and something Bittersweet is the idea that in all things there is both something broken and something beautiful, that there is a sliver of lightness on even the darkest of nights, a shadow of hope in every heartbreak, and that rejoicing is no less rich when it contains a splinter of sadness. Bittersweet is the practice of believing that we really do need both the bitter and the sweet, and that a life of nothing but sweetness rots both your teeth and your soul. Bitter is what makes us strong, what forces us to push through, what helps us earn the lines on our faces and the calluses on our hands. — Shauna Niequist

Sliver Sayings By Clive Barker: So quickly? Todd cleared away another wave of tears and looked down at the body So quickly? Todd cleared away another wave of tears and looked down at the body on the table. Dempsey's eye was still half-open, but it didn't look back at him any longer. Where there'd been a sliver of bright life, where there'd been mischief and shared rituals - where, in short, there'd been Dempsey - there was nothing. — Clive Barker

Sliver Sayings By Christina Henry: If she moved her head all the way up against the wall and tilted it If she moved her head all the way up against the wall and tilted it to the left she could just see the edge of the moon through the bars. Just a silver sliver, almost close enough to eat. A sliver of cheese, a sliver of cake, a cup of tea to be polite. Someone had given her a cup of tea once, someone with blue-green eyes and long ears. Funny how she couldn't remember his face, though. All that part was hazy, her memory of him wrapped in smoke but for the eyes and ears. And the ears were long and furry. — Christina Henry
Sliver Sayings By Czeslaw Milosz: The vineyard country, russet, reddish, carmine-brown in this season.A blue outline of hills above a The vineyard country, russet, reddish, carmine-brown in this season.
A blue outline of hills above a fertile valley.
It's warm as long as the sun does not set, in the shade cold returns.
A strong sauna and then swimming in a pool surrounded by trees.
Dark redwoods, transparent pale-leved birches.
In their delicate network, a sliver of the moon.
I describe this for I have learned to doubt philosophy
And the visible world is all that remains. — Czeslaw Milosz
Sliver Sayings By Louis-Ferdinand Celine: There would be nothing but darkness, same darkness as everywhere else, an enormous darkness that There would be nothing but darkness, same darkness as everywhere else, an enormous darkness that swallowed up the road two steps ahead of us, only a little sliver of road about the size of your tongue was spared by the darkness. — Louis-Ferdinand Celine
Sliver Sayings By Ben Peek: I was, without a sliver of a doubt, a no-good, lazy slacker of a child, I was, without a sliver of a doubt, a no-good, lazy slacker of a child, and after I discovered literature, I was totally and utterly a no-good, lazy slacker of a child who read books.

Sliver Sayings By Paul Fleischman: Why do I need TV when I have forty-eight apartment windows to watch across the Why do I need TV when I have forty-eight apartment windows to watch across the vacant lot, and a sliver of Lake Erie? I've seen history out this window. So much. I was four when we moved here in 1919. The fruit-sellers' carts and coal wagons were pulled down the street by horses back then. I used to stand just here and watch the coal brought up by the handsome lad from Groza, the village my parents were born in. Gibb Street was mainly Rumanians back then. It was "Adio" - "Good-bye"- in all the shops when you left. Then the Rumanians started leaving. They weren't the first, or the last. This has always been a working-class neighborhood. It's like a cheap hotel - you stay until you've got enough money to leave. — Paul Fleischman
Sliver Sayings By Cristina Martin: If you focus your eyes towards the horizon, everything and everyone walking in front of If you focus your eyes towards the horizon, everything and everyone walking in front of you becomes a blurry mass. That's what everyone else became. All of their dark wool suits began to mesh into one, and they began to rhythmically march in unison, all while I gazed at the sliver of sky that seemed to be pressed tightly in between the skyscrapers. I kept on walking and staring at the sky, and I began to notice the skyscrapers becoming larger and larger, and before I knew it, I had to turn to get to my building, and of course, the automat. — Cristina Martin
Sliver Sayings By Ben H. Winters: It's like you walk into a dark room, and there's a sliver of pale light It's like you walk into a dark room, and there's a sliver of pale light under a doorway on the opposite side. You open that door and it leads on to a second room, slightly brighter than the last, and there's another door on the other side, with light under that one. And you keep going forward, one room after the other, more and more rooms, more and more light. — Ben H. Winters

Sliver Sayings By Frank O'Hara: Oh say can you see Alma. The darlingof Them. All her friends were artists.They alone Oh say can you see Alma. The darling
of Them. All her friends were artists.
They alone have memories. They alone
love flowers. They alone give parties
and die. Poor Alma. They alone.
She died,
and it was as if all the jewels in the world
had heaved a sigh. The seismograph
at Fordham university registered, for once,
a spiritual note. How like a sliver
in her own short fat muscular foot.
She loved the Western World, though
there are some who say she isn't really dead. — Frank O'Hara
Sliver Sayings By Katie McGarry: A sliver of hope sneaks past my walls and I slam every opening shut. Emotion A sliver of hope sneaks past my walls and I slam every opening shut. Emotion is evil. People who make me feel are worse. I take comfort in the stone inside me. If I don't feel, I don't hurt. — Katie McGarry
Sliver Sayings By John Green: And all at once I knew how Margo Roth Spiegelman felt when she wasn't being And all at once I knew how Margo Roth Spiegelman felt when she wasn't being Margo Roth Spiegelman: she felt empty. She felt the unscaleable wall surrounding her. I thought of her asleep on the carpet with only that jagged sliver of sky above her. Maybe Margo felt comfortable there because Margo the person lived like that all the time: in an abandoned room with blocked-out windows, the only light pouring in through holes in the roof. Yes. The fundamental mistake I had always made - and that she had, in fairness, always led me to make - was this: Margo was not a miracle. She was not an adventure. She was not a fine and precious thing. She was a girl. — John Green
Sliver Sayings By Avery Flynn: Do you know them?" she asked. "Yes." "Introduce me." "They'll want to play." A warning? Do you know them?" she asked.
"Yes."
"Introduce me."
"They'll want to play." A warning? A hope? Fuck, Bianca had his thinking so twisted he wasn't sure himself.
She glided her palm up his inner thigh and over his concrete dick, pushing against his tuxedo pants. "Then we play." She glanced up at him and he caught a sliver of doubt before her game face slid into place. "But they can only watch. — Avery Flynn
Sliver Sayings By Anthony Doerr: There has always been a sliver of panic in him, deeply buried, when it comes There has always been a sliver of panic in him, deeply buried, when it comes to his daughter: a fear that he is no good as a father, that he is doing everything wrong. That he never quite understood the rules. — Anthony Doerr
Sliver Sayings By Budd Schulberg: First, no qualms. Not the thinnest sliver of misgiving about the value of his work. First, no qualms. Not the thinnest sliver of misgiving about the value of his work. He was able to feel that the most important job in the world was putting over Monsoon. In the second place, he was as uninhibited as a performing seal. He never questioned his right to monopolize conversations or his ability to do it entertainingly. And then there was his colossal lack of perspective. This was one of his most valuable gifts, for perspective doesn't always pay. It can slow you down. — Budd Schulberg
Sliver Sayings By Peggy Noonan: No news conferences? Interviews now only with friendly journalists? You can't be president or vice No news conferences? Interviews now only with friendly journalists? You can't be president or vice president and govern in that style, as a sequestered figure. This has been Mr. Bush's style the past few years, and see where it got us. You must address America in its entirety, not as a sliver or a series of slivers but as a full and whole entity, a great nation trying to hold together. When you don't, when you play only to your little piece, you contribute to its fracturing. — Peggy Noonan
Sliver Sayings By James Dashner: He leaned his head against the wall and closed his eyes, for a moment wanting He leaned his head against the wall and closed his eyes, for a moment wanting nothing but to fall asleep and never wake up again, or to do the opposite and kneel, bashing his head against the floor until it was over. But there was still that small sliver of clarity in his mind. He held on to it like a man clinging to a root on the side of a sheer cliff. — James Dashner

Sliver Sayings By Ayelet Waldman: Most writers spend their lives standing a little apart from the crowd, watching and listening Most writers spend their lives standing a little apart from the crowd, watching and listening and hoping to catch that tiny hint of despair, that sliver of malice, that makes them think, 'Aha, here is the story.' — Ayelet Waldman

Sliver Sayings By Esther Earl: Love and hope are conjoined, if you separate one, you kill the other. If hope Love and hope are conjoined, if you separate one, you kill the other. If hope survives then love endures. Where even a sliver of love exists, the thinnest of hopes has room to grow. — Esther Earl
Sliver Sayings By Emma Chase: The flat is small, with only a sliver of ocean view from the bedroom window, The flat is small, with only a sliver of ocean view from the bedroom window, but I pay for it myself - not from the family trust fund.

There's satisfaction in earning one's own money. Self-sufficiency - like knowing how to rub sticks together to start a fire. A survival skill. I could make it in the wilderness if I had to.

Well . . . if the wilderness were Castlebrook, anyway. — Emma Chase
Sliver Sayings By Kathryn Lasky: It has been a week since Ami died and this morning I woke suddenly hours It has been a week since Ami died and this morning I woke suddenly hours before dawn, indeed the same hour as when my mother died. It was not a dream that woke me, but a thought. And with that thought I could swear I heard Ami's voice.
But I am not frightened. I am joyous. Joyous with realization. For I cannot help but think what a lucky person I am. Imagine that in all the eons of time, in all the possible universes of which Dara speaks, of all the stars in the heavens, Ami and I came together for one brief and shining sliver of time.
I stop. I think.
Supposing in the grand infinity of this universe two particles of life, Ami and me, swirl endlessly like grains of sand in the oceans of the world
how much of a chance is there for these two particles, these two grains of sand, to collide, to rest briefly together ... at the same moment in time?
That is what happened with Ami and me ... this miracle of chance. — Kathryn Lasky
Sliver Sayings By Karen Marie Moning: Oh, yes, I'm going to have to kill you, Barrons, I said coolly. Partly because, Oh, yes, I'm going to have to kill you, Barrons, I said coolly. Partly because, for the most minuscule sliver of an instant, while looking at those handcuffs, I'd imagined myself climbing back into bed and pretending I wasn't cured yet. — Karen Marie Moning

Sliver Sayings By Rob Manuel: Hollywood is the kind of town that likes to make everything larger than life: movie Hollywood is the kind of town that likes to make everything larger than life: movie premieres, aging actress' lips, and murders.

Sliver Sayings By Suzanne Collins: Beetee is still messing round the tree, doing I don't know what. At one point Beetee is still messing round the tree, doing I don't know what. At one point he snaps off a sliver of bark, joins us, and throws it against the force field. It bounces back and lands on the ground, glowing. In a few moments it returns to its original color. "Well, that explains a lot," says Beetee. I look at Peeta and can't help biting my lip to keep from laughing since it explains absolutely nothing to anyone but Beetee. — Suzanne Collins
Sliver Sayings By Adrian Tan: Do not waste the vast majority of your life doing something you hate so that Do not waste the vast majority of your life doing something you hate so that you can spend the small remainder sliver of your life in modest comfort. You may never reach that end anyway.
Resist the temptation to get a job. Instead, play. Find something you enjoy doing. Do it. Over and over again. You will become good at it for two reasons: you like it, and you do it often. Soon, that will have value in itself. — Adrian Tan
Sliver Sayings By Jeaniene Frost: Even though he'd released only a sliver of his power, it still felt as if Even though he'd released only a sliver of his power, it still felt as if I'd just gotten subconsciously scalded. If I were anyone else, I'd be terrified at pissing off the legendary Vlad Tepesh, meaning "Impaler," aka Dracula, aka don't-ever-call-him-Dracula-if-you-want-to-live, but I was Mrs. Vlad Dracul, thank you very much. — Jeaniene Frost
Sliver Sayings By Alan Lightman: On one thing most physicists agree. If the amount of dark energy in our universe On one thing most physicists agree. If the amount of dark energy in our universe were only a little bit different than what it actually is, then life could never have emerged. A little larger, and the universe would have accelerated so rapidly that matter in the young universe could never have pulled itself together to form stars and hence complex atoms made in stars. And, going into negative values of dark energy, a little smaller and the universe would have decelerated so rapidly that it would have recollapsed before there was time to form even the simplest atoms. Out of all the possible amounts of dark energy that our universe might have, the actual amount lies in the tiny sliver of the range that allows life. As before, one is compelled to ask the question: Why does such fine-tuning occur? — Alan Lightman
Sliver Sayings By Bruce Springsteen: We could survive as musicians only on our little sliver of the East Coast. We We could survive as musicians only on our little sliver of the East Coast. We had to get back. — Bruce Springsteen
Sliver Sayings By Jennifer Estep: Moonlight slipped in through the lace curtains, slicing everything with its sliver cracks.

Sliver Sayings By M.L. Stedman: But a sliver of un-crossable distance had slipped between them; an invisible, wisp-thin no man's But a sliver of un-crossable distance had slipped between them; an invisible, wisp-thin no man's land. — M.L. Stedman
Sliver Sayings By Jennifer L. Armentrout: Standing, Rider lifted his arms and stretched. His shirt rode up, baring a sliver of Standing, Rider lifted his arms and stretched. His shirt rode up, baring a sliver of his stomach. My gaze dropped and focused in. His lower stomach was unbelievably taut. Defined.
Nice.
Very nice.
Cheeks flushing, I looked away and caught Hector's knowing gaze. Crap. I needed to be better about checking out guys. Like incognito style. — Jennifer L. Armentrout
Sliver Sayings By Guy De Maupassant: He stared fixedly at the opposite bank where an angler was fishing, his line perfectly He stared fixedly at the opposite bank where an angler was fishing, his line perfectly still. All of a sudden the man jerked out of the water a little sliver fish which wriggled at the end of his line. Twisting and turning it this way and that he tried to extract his hook, but in vain. Losing patience he started pulling and, as he did so, tore out the entire bloody gullet of the fish with parts of its intestines attached. Paul shuddered, feeling himself equally torn apart. It seemed to him that the hook was like his own love and that if he were to tear it out he too would be gutted by a piece of curved wire hooked deep into his essential self at the end of a line held by Madeleine. — Guy De Maupassant
Sliver Sayings By H.J. Bellus: I'm pretty sure my stomach has a sliver in it from rubbing up against my I'm pretty sure my stomach has a sliver in it from rubbing up against my backbone, so back off, bitch. — H.J. Bellus

Sliver Sayings By Will Self: A short story is a shard, a sliver, a vignette. It's a biopsy on the A short story is a shard, a sliver, a vignette. It's a biopsy on the human condition but it doesn't have this capacity to think autonomously for itself. — Will Self
Sliver Sayings By J.R. Withers: And strange were the tales of the pond in the meadow,And eager we listened with And strange were the tales of the pond in the meadow,
And eager we listened with eyes opened wide
To Those tales often told by poor Mary the widow,
Who lived in a cottage the meadow beside.
Play not, my dear boys, near the pond in the meadow,
The mermaid is waiting to pull you beneath;
Climb not for a bird's nest, the bough it may sliver,
And the mermaid will drag you to darkness and death. — J.R. Withers
Sliver Sayings By Kenn Bivins: A wedding is allegedly one of the most wondrous experiences in a woman's life. All A wedding is allegedly one of the most wondrous experiences in a woman's life. All attending her presence are to make the occasion completely about her. Her beauty in that sliver of time is to be suspended in eternity so that ten years, thirty pounds and two kids later, she may sigh at the princess she once was. — Kenn Bivins
Sliver Sayings By Anne Morrow Lindbergh: Here on the island I find I can sit with a friend without talking, sharing Here on the island I find I can sit with a friend without talking, sharing the day's last sliver of pale green light on the horizon, or the whorls in a small white shell, or the dark scar left in a dazzling night sky by a shooting star. Then communication becomes communion and one is nourished as one never is by words. — Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Sliver Sayings By Chloe Neill: You're wearing your medal," he said. I grazed the gold with my fingertips. "I wasn't You're wearing your medal," he said. I grazed the gold with my fingertips. "I wasn't sure if I should, if it was dressy enough?" "You should. Consider it your dog tag." "In case I get lost?" "In case you're fried to ash and that sliver of gold is all that's left of you." Vampire tact, I thought, left something to be desired. — Chloe Neill
Sliver Sayings By Lev Grossman: Quentin found himself staring at the end of his Brakebills careers across the perilously slender Quentin found himself staring at the end of his Brakebills careers across the perilously slender gap of only two months of time. It was like he'd been wending his way though a vast, glittering city, zig-zagging through side streets and wandering through buildings and haunted de Chrico arcades and little hidden piazzas, the whole time thinking that he'd barely scratched the surface, that he was just seeing a tiny sliver of one little neighborhood. And then suddenly he turned a corner and it turned out that he'd been through the whole city, it was all behind him, and all that was left was one short street leading straight out of town. — Lev Grossman
Sliver Sayings By Arden Aoide: As he walked, he knew the bathroom instantly because of the reflective tile floor. Hers As he walked, he knew the bathroom instantly because of the reflective tile floor. Hers would be the last door again. As he took another step forward, he could see a sliver of skin cut by the light, reflecting a glimpse of her pale skin. It served as a beacon to him, an invitation to touch something that would only belong to him. Could only be his. — Arden Aoide
Sliver Sayings By John McWhorter: For all but the sliver of poetry fans, over the past forty years popular song For all but the sliver of poetry fans, over the past forty years popular song lyrics have been the nation's poetry. — John McWhorter
Sliver Sayings By James Salter: I spent the night on a sliver of rock high up on the east face I spent the night on a sliver of rock high up on the east face of Long's Peak, climbing with Tom Frost, and slept at the icy feet of the Dru, listening to the lightning crack above me and the thunder roll down. I only did it to write about it. I would never go up on the Grotto Wall for fun. — James Salter
Sliver Sayings By Melissa Coleman: God was something I did not understand the way kids who went to church did. God was something I did not understand the way kids who went to church did. They said God was a man in the sky with white hair and a beard like Santa. This seemed strange to me. When I thought of God, I imagined only mist over the pond, a sliver of moon in a dark sky, scatterings of stars, birdsong. — Melissa Coleman
Sliver Sayings By Shauna Niequist: This is what I know: God can make something beautiful out of anything, out of This is what I know: God can make something beautiful out of anything, out of darkness and trash and broken bones. He can shine light into even the blackest night, and he leaves glimpses of hope all around us. An oyster, a sliver of moon, one new bud on a black branch, a perfect tender shoot of asparagus, fighting up through the dirt for the spring sun. New life and new beauty are all around us, waiting to be discovered, waiting to be seen. — Shauna Niequist
Sliver Sayings By Peter Watts: All science ever did was measure a teensy sliver of the universe and assume that All science ever did was measure a teensy sliver of the universe and assume that everything else behaved the same way. — Peter Watts
Sliver Sayings By Adam Rayner: I certainly have a sliver of me, which is definitely American, and feels a great I certainly have a sliver of me, which is definitely American, and feels a great pull towards where I spent time when I was very young, which is in California. — Adam Rayner
Sliver Sayings By Keith Miller: Reading is the strangest art. Your eye takes a shape, turns it into music, then Reading is the strangest art. Your eye takes a shape, turns it into music, then story, then spirit, so a curl of ink laid long ago by a sliver of reed can become, a thousand years later, your own breath. — Keith Miller
Sliver Sayings By Pablo Neruda: Neither the heart cut by a sliver of glass in a wasteland of thorns, nor Neither the heart cut by a sliver of glass in a wasteland of thorns, nor the atrocious waters seen in the corners of certain houses, waters like eyelids and eyes, could hold your waist in my hands when my heart lifts its oak trees toward your unbreakable thread of snow. Night sugar, spirit of crowns, redeemed human blood, your kisses banish me, and a surge of water with remnants of the sea strikes the silences that wait for you surrounding the worn-out chairs, wearing doors away. — Pablo Neruda
Sliver Sayings By S.R. Grey: Chase has made me feel a lot of things today, things I thought I'd never Chase has made me feel a lot of things today, things I thought I'd never feel again - excitement, giddiness, lust, possibility. But the most important one - the one I want to cling to like a girl who's been stumbling around for too long in the dark and has just spotted a sliver of light - is hope. — S.R. Grey
Sliver Sayings By N.K. Jemisin: And in that sliver of time, I felt the power around me coalesce, malice-hard and And in that sliver of time, I felt the power around me coalesce, malice-hard and sharp as crystal.
That this analogy occurred to me should have been a warning. — N.K. Jemisin
Sliver Sayings By Jenny Lawson: Once, we came home to find Rambo in the sink, washing a tiny sliver of Once, we came home to find Rambo in the sink, washing a tiny sliver of soap that had been a new bath-size bar that morning. He looked exhausted, and like he wanted someone to stop him and put him to bed, but when we tried to take away the last bit of soap he growled at us, and so we let him finish, because at that point I guess it was like a vendetta, if raccoons had vendettas. — Jenny Lawson
Sliver Sayings By Jessi Kirby: Finn told me once, as we sat on the porch watching the sun go down, Finn told me once, as we sat on the porch watching the sun go down, that one thing he remembered our mom telling him was that life sometimes gives you a tiny moment of peace when you need it most. And that you had to be careful and look out for it or you'd miss it. He'd said it just as the last sliver of the sun dipped below the horizon, leaving a flaming pick summer sky behind. We sat quiet in the still heat, and I'd thought I understood what he meant then, because it felt so good and safe to be sitting there with him next to me. Now though, I understood it with a depth that made me want to laugh and cry at the same time, and I wished more than anything I could tell him. — Jessi Kirby
Sliver Sayings By James Dashner: Mark felt the Berg descending. He leaned his head against the wall and closed his Mark felt the Berg descending. He leaned his head against the wall and closed his eyes, for a moment wanting nothing but to fall asleep and never wake up again, or to do the opposite and kneel, bashing his head against the floor until it was over. But there was still that small sliver of clarity in his mind. He held on to it like a man clinging to a root on the side of a sheer cliff. Eyes open again. With a grunt, he forced himself to his feet, leaning against the window. The small city of Asheville lay spread out before them. Walls had been constructed out of wood, — James Dashner
Sliver Sayings By Kelly Corrigan: It is one thing to be a man's wife - quite another to be the It is one thing to be a man's wife - quite another to be the mother of his children. In fact, once you become a mother, being a wife seems like a game you once played or a self-help book you were overly impressed with as a teenager that on second reading is puffy with common ideas. This was one of the many things I had learned since crossing over into the middle place - that sliver of time when childhood and parenthood overlap. — Kelly Corrigan
Sliver Sayings By Carolyn Jewel: The patterns overhead shifted so that, had she an imagination prone to hysteria, she could The patterns overhead shifted so that, had she an imagination prone to hysteria, she could easily convince herself something hid in the curtains above her head. She imagined a face in the shadows and folds of fabric, a face with sad, hollow eyes. The sliver of light shining through a crack in the window curtains disappeared. Shadows deepened and swirled and the face became even more uncannily real. — Carolyn Jewel
Sliver Sayings By John Scalzi: There is a moment of surface tension when a knife blade presents its demand and There is a moment of surface tension when a knife blade presents its demand and the flesh honors it. An instant of pressure before the puncture, the rip before the slide, a small eternity easy to miss but impossible to ignore if you've felt it before. I lived in that moment a great while for the small sliver of time it was there. — John Scalzi
Sliver Sayings By Salman Rushdie: Otto Cone as a man of seventy-plus years jumped into an open lift shaft and Otto Cone as a man of seventy-plus years jumped into an open lift shaft and died. Now this was a subject which Alicia Cone, who would readily discuss the most taboo matters refused to touch upon. Why does a survivor of the camps live forty years then complete the job the monsters didn't get done? Does great evil eventually triumph no matter how strenuously it is resisted? Does it leave a sliver of ice in the blood working its way through until it reaches the heart? Or worse, can a man's death be incompatible with his life? Alicia, who's first response on hearing of her father's death had been fury, flung such questions as these at her mother, who stone-faced beneath a broad-brimmed black hat said only, You have inherited his lack of restraint my dear. — Salman Rushdie
Sliver Sayings By Rob Manuel: The scariest part to any story is the sliver of truth you hide in the The scariest part to any story is the sliver of truth you hide in the horror. Sometimes its not about the axe wielding murder, but the fact that he's lurking somewhere in your basement. Sure, you keep telling yourself that you'll replace the burnt out light every week. — Rob Manuel
Sliver Sayings By Michael Marshall: The body protects itself, and the same happens in the mind. It occurs sluggishly and The body protects itself, and the same happens in the mind. It occurs sluggishly and imperfectly, a bad job done by indifferent craftsmen, but within minutes an accretion of defence mechanisms starts to form around the trauma, blunting its edges, eventually sealing it away inside scar tissue. Like a sliver of glass buried deep in a cut, the event will never go away, and often a movement will cause it to nudge a nerve ending and burn like fire for a while. However much it hurts when that happens, the last thing you want. — Michael Marshall
Sliver Sayings By Jess Schira: Waves of ice cold shock swept over Theo.Mrs. Dietrich, the woman who fed him chocolate Waves of ice cold shock swept over Theo.
Mrs. Dietrich, the woman who fed him chocolate cookies every time she pulled a sliver from his finger, the woman who'd tended him through every sickness and illness he'd had, the woman he loved as much as his own mother: a war spy and traitor.
Impossible!
"You think your mom is a spy?" He said the words slowly, not quite believing they came from his mouth. "For Germany? That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. — Jess Schira
Sliver Sayings By Italo Calvino: I could distinguish the shape of her bosom, her arms, her thighs, just as I I could distinguish the shape of her bosom, her arms, her thighs, just as I remember them now, just as now, when the Moon has become that flat, remote circle, I still look for her as soon as the first sliver appears in the sky, and the more it waxes, the more clearly I imagine I can see her, her or something of her, but only her, in a hundred, a thousand different vistas, she who makes the Moon the Moon and, whenever she is full, sets the dogs to howling all night long, and me with them. — Italo Calvino
Sliver Sayings By James Lipton: I had something called the back of the chair test. Where I sit, we don't I had something called the back of the chair test. Where I sit, we don't sit like you and I do. I can see a sliver right behind them and they come out and they sit like this like god students and they don't touch the back of the chair. — James Lipton
Sliver Sayings By Nora Roberts: Beautifully wrapped. She reached for her tape, pulled the end - and got the sliver Beautifully wrapped. She reached for her tape, pulled the end - and got the sliver left on the roll. — Nora Roberts
Sliver Sayings By Hazel Ying Lee: I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star, fragile as a flower, I held a moment in my hand, brilliant as a star, fragile as a flower, a tiny sliver of one hour. I dripped it carelessly, Ah! I didn't know, I held opportunity. — Hazel Ying Lee
Sliver Sayings By Krista Tippett: We've made it private, contained it in family, when its audacity is in its potential We've made it private, contained it in family, when its audacity is in its potential to cross tribal lines. We've fetishized it as romance, when its true measure is a quality of sustained, practical care. We've lived it as a feeling, when it is a way of being. It is the elemental experience we all desire and seek, most of our days, to give and receive. The sliver of love's potential that the Greeks separated out as eros is where we load so much of our desire, center so much of our imagination about delight and despair, define so much of our sense of completion. There is the love the Greeks called filia - the love of friendship. There is the love they called agape - love as embodied compassion, expressions of kindness that might be given to a neighbor or a stranger. The Metta of the root Buddhist Pali tongue, "lovingkindness," carries the nuance of benevolent, active interest in others known and unknown, and its cultivation begins with compassion towards oneself. — Krista Tippett
Sliver Sayings By James Salter: None of this is true. I've said Autun, but it could easily have been Auxerre. None of this is true. I've said Autun, but it could easily have been Auxerre. I'm sure you'll come to realize that. I am only putting down details which entered me, fragments that were able to part my flesh. It's a story of things that never existed although even the faintest doubt of that, the smallest possibility, plunges everything into darkness. I only want whoever reads this to be as resigned as I am. There's enough passion in the world already. Everything trembles with it. Not that I believe it shouldn't exist, no, no, but this is only a thin, reflecting sliver which somehow keeps catching the light. — James Salter
Sliver Sayings By Langston Hughes: Cheap little rhymesA cheap little tuneAre sometimes as dangerousAs a sliver of the moon. Cheap little rhymes

Sliver Sayings By Sarah Dessen: More like a door being opened a tiny crack to let a sliver of light More like a door being opened a tiny crack to let a sliver of light in. It wasn't enough to see clearly by, but from then on, we would never be fully in the dark again. — Sarah Dessen
Sliver Sayings By Carl Sagan: If the Earth were as old as a person, a typical organism would be born, If the Earth were as old as a person, a typical organism would be born, live and die in a sliver of a second. We are fleeting, transitional creatures, snowflakes fallen on the hearth fire. — Carl Sagan
Sliver Sayings By Jacob Wren: If I'm the enemy then really let me have it. If moral outrage about the If I'm the enemy then really let me have it. If moral outrage about the state of the world is consuming your life, paralyzing you, taking over your world, then set fire to the reader in an act of revenge. Instead you leave the reader, or this reader at least, indifferent, watching your ineffective life unravel ineffectually. If our wealth is criminal then let's live with the criminal joy of pirates or fight to the death to bring a sliver more of justice into being. Not the passive slither forward you are attempting to pass off as literature. — Jacob Wren
Sliver Sayings By Tom Waits: I made a wish on a sliver of moonlightA sly grin and a bowl full I made a wish on a sliver of moonlight

Sliver Sayings By Wallace Stegner: But however you might rebel, there was no shedding them. They were your responsibility and But however you might rebel, there was no shedding them. They were your responsibility and there was no one to relieve you of them. They called you Sis. All your life people called you Sis, because that was what you were, or what you became - big sister, helpful sister, the one upon whom everyone depended, the one they all came to for everything from help with homework to a sliver under the fingernail. — Wallace Stegner
Sliver Sayings By Greg Bear: From horizon to horizon the sky was filled with stars to within a few degrees From horizon to horizon the sky was filled with stars to within a few degrees of a fresh sliver of moon, a tiny thing lost in the yawn of night. — Greg Bear
Sliver Sayings By Brene Brown: In addition to the fear of disappointing people or pushing them away with our stories, In addition to the fear of disappointing people or pushing them away with our stories, we're also afraid that if we tell our stories, the weight of a single experience will collapse upon us. There is a real fear that we can be buried or defined by an experience that, in reality, is only a sliver of who we are. — Brene Brown
Sliver Sayings By Jennifer Sucevic: The girls are all talking and laughing, trying to get pumped up and for just The girls are all talking and laughing, trying to get pumped up and for just one small sliver of a moment, I stop. Taking it all in because this is something I've really missed over the last year. The comradery of a team. The sisterhood of hockey players. Girls who have your back. — Jennifer Sucevic
Sliver Sayings By B. J. Daniels: Something about the Judge Raymond Randolph murder case. Something was wrong. He could feel it Something about the Judge Raymond Randolph murder case. Something was wrong. He could feel it deep in his bones, like a sliver buried under the skin. — B. J. Daniels

Sliver Sayings By Jock Sturges: A virulent, aggressive minority has decided that Americans don't know themselves what it is they A virulent, aggressive minority has decided that Americans don't know themselves what it is they should see, and need to be protected by people who are wiser than they are, even if they are only a tiny sliver of the population. — Jock Sturges
Sliver Sayings By Agatha Bird: I stabbed him," Flit said weakly, clutching at the tattered remains of Talon's shirt. "With I stabbed him," Flit said weakly, clutching at the tattered remains of Talon's shirt.
"With pens," Talon agreed.
"Is he dead?" Flit's eyes were huge, the pupils blown black, only a sliver of color showing around the edges. He was probably going into shock.
"I don't think so," Talon said. "It's pretty hard to die by pen. — Agatha Bird
Sliver Sayings By Keith Miller: It may seem an easy task to disregard a secret but secrets are like splinters It may seem an easy task to disregard a secret but secrets are like splinters beneath the flesh, the infection spreads and spreads and then the limb turns gangrenous and must be sawn away, all for the sake of a sliver of wood. — Keith Miller
Sliver Sayings By Gillian Flynn: I'm here, I said, and it felt shockingly comforting, those words. When I'm panicked, I I'm here, I said, and it felt shockingly comforting, those words. When I'm panicked, I say them aloud to myself. I'm here. I don't usually feel that I am. I feel like a warm gust of wind could exhale my way and I'd be disappeared forever, not even a sliver of fingernail left behind. On some days, I find this thought calming; on others it chills me. — Gillian Flynn
Sliver Sayings By Thomas Daniel Nehrer: Indeed, of the major religions, Islam offers no discernible sliver of valid notion for How Indeed, of the major religions, Islam offers no discernible sliver of valid notion for How Life Works. — Thomas Daniel Nehrer
Sliver Sayings By Geraldine Brooks: Jewish prayers are mostly about daily things - the sliver of a new moon, dew Jewish prayers are mostly about daily things - the sliver of a new moon, dew on the grass, the bread and the wine. — Geraldine Brooks
Sliver Sayings By Jewel E. Ann: If you ever say her name again, I will end you."My heart takes up permanent If you ever say her name again, I will end you."

My heart takes up permanent residency in my throat. I bet he can see it pulsing in my neck. Once I manage to find a sliver of space to speak past it, I whisper, "Sorry, I'm afraid there's a queue. — Jewel E. Ann
