Barbara Kingsolver


American fiction writer.
Barbara Kingsolver
Her body moved with the frankness that comes from solitary habits. But solitude is only a human presumption. Every quiet step is thunder to beetle life underfoot; every choice is a world made new for the chosen. All secrets are witnessed.
Kingsolver quotes
The friend who holds your hand and says the wrong thing is made of dearer stuff than the one who stays away.
Kingsolver
It's surprising how much memory is built around things unnoticed at the time.




Kingsolver Barbara quotes
If we can't, as artists, improve on real life, we should put down our pencils and go bake bread.

It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn't.
Barbara Kingsolver quotes
It wasn't a matter of courage or dreams, but something a whole lot simpler. A pilot would call it ground orientation. I'd spent a long time circling above the clouds, looking for life, while Hallie was living it.
Barbara Kingsolver
Libraries are the one American institution you shouldn't rip off.
Kingsolver Barbara quotes

Every minute with a child takes seven minutes off your life.
Kingsolver Barbara
Why does a person even get up in the morning? You have breakfast, you floss your teeth so you'll have healthy gums in your old age, and then you get in your car and drive down I-10 and die. Life is so stupid I can't stand it.
Barbara Kingsolver
What you lose in blindness is the space around you, the place where you are, and without that you might not exist. You could be nowhere at all.




Barbara Kingsolver quotes
Few people know so clearly what they want. Most people can't even think what to hope for when they throw a penny in a fountain.
Barbara Kingsolver
Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer.
Kingsolver quotes
The march of human progress seemed mainly a matter of getting over that initial shock of being here.
Kingsolver Barbara
Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.
Kingsolver Barbara quotes
Memory is a complicated thing, a relative to truth, but not its twin.
Barbara Kingsolver
A wife is the earth itself, changing hands, bearing scars.
Barbara Kingsolver quotes
Life always provides me with better jokes than any I could invent.
Barbara Kingsolver
The important thing isn't the house. It's the ability to make it. You carry that in your brains and in your hands, wherever you go... It's one thing to carry your life wherever you go. Another thing to always go looking for it somewhere else.
Kingsolver Barbara
The truth needs so little rehearsal.
