Top Breakable Quotes

Breakable Quotes By Ta-Nehisi Coates

Perhaps that was, is, the hope of the movement: to awaken the Dreamers, to rouse them to the facts of what their need to be white, to talk like they are white, to think that they are white, which is to think that they are beyond the design flaws of humanity, has done to the world. But you cannot arrange your life around them and the small chance of the Dreamers coming into consciousness. Our moment is too brief. Our bodies are too precious. And you are here now, and you must live - and there is so much out there to live for, not just in someone else's country, but in your own home. The warmth of dark energies that drew me to The Mecca, that drew out Prince Jones, the warmth of our particular world, is beautiful, no matter how brief and breakable. — Ta-Nehisi Coates

Breakable Quotes By G.K. Chesterton

to be breakable is not the same as to be perishable. Strike a glass, and it will not endure an instant; simply do not strike it, and it will endure a thousand years. Such, it seemed, was the joy of man, either in elfland or on earth; the happiness depended on not doing something which you could at any moment do and which, very often, it was not obvious why you should not do. — G.K. Chesterton

Breakable Quotes By Kate Christensen

She was fierce and opaque, and not breakable. — Kate Christensen

Breakable Quotes By Timothy Keller

There is no way to have a real relationship without becoming vulnerable to hurt. Christmas tells us that God became breakable and fragile. God became someone we could hurt. Why? To get us back ... No other religion-whethe r secularism, Greco-Roman paganism, Eastern religion, Judaism, or Islam-believes God became breakable or suffered or had a body. — Timothy Keller

Breakable Quotes By Dan Brown

But Susan's thoughts were far removed from the political implications of Digital Fortress. She was still struggling to comprehend its existence. She'd spent her life breaking codes, firmly denying the existence of the ultimate code. Every code is breakable - the Bergofsky Principle! She felt like an atheist coming face to face with God. — Dan Brown

Breakable Quotes By Alan Coren

The word "souvenir" has, of course, slightly extended itself in meaning until it now denotes almost anything either breakable or useless; but even today, ninety per cent of the items covered by the word are forgettable objects in which cigarettes can be left to go stale. — Alan Coren

Breakable Quotes By Jodi Ellen Malpas

We have lots to catch up on. We've broke the back of it, and this is all the more reason for me to remedy the situation that will undoubtedly take me back to being treated like I'm breakable if I remain pregnant. — Jodi Ellen Malpas

Breakable Quotes By Euripides

Love must not touch the marrow of the soul. Our affections must be breakable chains that we can cast them off or tighten them ... — Euripides

Breakable Quotes By Haruki Murakami

Samsa looked down in dismay at his naked body. How ill-formed it was! Worse than ill-formed. It possessed no means of self-defense. Smooth white skin (covered by only a perfunctory amount of hair) with fragile blue blood vessels visible through it; a soft, unprotected belly; ludicrous, impossibly shaped genitals; gangly arms and legs (just two of each!); a scrawny, breakable neck; an enormous, misshapen head with a tangle of stiff hair on its crown; two absurd ears, jutting out like a pair of seashells. Was this thing really him? Could a body so preposterous, so easy to destroy (no shell for protection, no weapons for attack), survive in the world? — Haruki Murakami

Breakable Quotes By Carol Shields

I was the breakable one. Women always are. It's not so much a question of one big disappointment, though. It's more like a thousand little disappointments raining down on top of each other. After a while it gets to seem like a flood, and the first thing you know you're drowning. — Carol Shields

Breakable Quotes By Atticus Poetry

It's a
lonely
thing,
protecting
a breakable
heart — Atticus Poetry

Breakable Quotes By M.R. Carey

But a thing can be easily breakable and still be a bastard to deal with. Ice is brittle, but try walking on half an inch of it. — M.R. Carey

Breakable Quotes By Tammara Webber

Then she told me her name, which I forgot immediately, and launched into a monologue of enmity concerning the girl who'd bumped her. I didn't know either of them, and I couldn't have cared less about their blood feud, which concerned either a guy or a pair of shoes
I couldn't determine which in my state of I don't give a shit. — Tammara Webber

Breakable Quotes By Kristen Ashley

As long as they aren't close to somethin' that can hurt them or somethin' breakable, we let 'em duke it out, Tack had told me. I wasn't certain this was an optimal parental choice but I'd never seen bikers raised from womb to badass. It was probably good they knew their way around a slug fest from a young age. — Kristen Ashley

Breakable Quotes By Sarah J. Maas

Too breakable - he'd said of human women. No wonder he'd come to her. Manon — Sarah J. Maas

Breakable Quotes By Anita Shreve

Kind of necessary acceptance will form around her, like a lobster making its new shell, one that will be soft and easily breakable in the beginning but so hard that only lobster crackers can shatter it in the end. She can hardly wait. — Anita Shreve

Breakable Quotes By Tammara Webber

Some of us can begin to heal the damage people have done to us by escaping the situation, but some of us need more than that. Tattoos make statements that need to be made. Or hide things that are no one's business. Your scars are battle wounds, but you don't see them that way. Yet. — Tammara Webber

Breakable Quotes By Lisa Anderson

Want to love singles in your church? Invite us to the grown-up table. Give us the breakable glasses, not plastic, and let us join in the adult conversation. You may actually learn something from us. And we will be more than willing to jump in and contribute. Pastors and church leaders, ferret out your single adults and get to know us. Invite us into the life and leadership of the church. Put us on committees. Challenge us to give financially. Ask us to lead a project. Don't let us occupy the sidelines. Make us assimilate. — Lisa Anderson

Breakable Quotes By Colleen Houck

I felt overwhelmed. I didn't expect a first kiss to be so ... life altering. In a few brief moments, the rule book of my universe had been rewritten. Suddenly I was a brand new person. I was as fragile as a newborn, but instead of the doctor placing me in my mother's arms, he'd put me in Ren's. What would Ren do with me? Would he draw me near, soothe me, and teach me about this new world or would he reject me and tell the doctor there must be some mistake. There was no way to know. What a breakable and delicate thing a heart was, no wonder I'd kept mine locked away. — Colleen Houck

Breakable Quotes By Debra Webb

As far as evil goes" - she shrugged one shoulder - "I've spent a dozen years studying the subject and there's one thing I know for sure." Her expression grew distant, breakable somehow. She blinked and seemed to push whatever had distracted her aside. "If you want to know what evil looks like, look in the mirror." She leaned down, flattened her hands on the table once more, and went face-to-face with Wells. "Any one of us is capable of evil, Detective. We all have a line. It's not crossing it that separates us from the Ed Geins and Charles Mansons of the world. — Debra Webb

Breakable Quotes By Margaret Atwood

There was always an element of melancholy involved in sex. After his indiscriminate adolescence he'd preferred sad women, delicate and breakable, women who'd been messed up and who needed him. — Margaret Atwood

Breakable Quotes By Kamila Shamsie

Your mother and I had one conversation a little before she died. She was sitting in the garden one evening when I came home from work, and she said, "I have to confess something. When we played 'chicken' from KDA to Clifton and I said I made you run three red lights, I lied. I made you stop even when they were only just turning amber." And I replied, "Samina, I didn't love you because you were the girl who ran red lights. I loved you because when you covered my eyes with your hands, I knew I could trust you to get me home." She was afraid of running red lights, Aasmaani. She wasn't an unbreakable creature of myth. She was entirely human, entirely breakable, and entirely extraordinary. — Kamila Shamsie

Breakable Quotes By Martin Amis

When you considered this world
people winched up and lowered down into the earth in steel cages and speed-fed through the tunnels, with doors cracking everywhere, and arctic winds mingling with dusty gaps of fire from the planet's core
it was hard to believe how delicate life was, how breakable things were. — Martin Amis

Breakable Quotes By Ransom Riggs

My parents treated me like a breakable heirloom, afraid to fight or fret in front of me least I shatter. — Ransom Riggs

Breakable Quotes By Stephenie Meyer

That's certainly a problem. But that's not what I was thinking of. It's just that you are so soft, so fragile. I have to mind my actions every moment that we're together so that I don't hurt you. I could kill you quite easily, Bella, simply by accident." His voice had become just a soft murmur. He moved his icy palm to rest it against my cheek. "If I was too hasty ... if for one second I wasn't paying enough attention, I could reach out, meaning to touch your face, and crush your skull by mistake. You don't realize how
incredibly breakable you are. I can never, never afford to lose any kind of control when I'm with you. — Stephenie Meyer

Breakable Quotes By Honey Father

Love is a damage
made to the heart,
violence,
fate thats written,
Changeable by distance,
Breakable by time ... ! — Honey Father

Breakable Quotes By E.L. Doctorow

It has taken time and the blundering wisdom and anarchic greed of our ancestry to construct the modern city of consolidated institutions. It is a great historically amassed communal creation. If you fly above it at night, it is a jeweled wonder of the universe, floating like a giant liner on the sea of darkness. It is smart, accomplished, sophisticated, and breathtakingly beautiful. And it glimmers and sparkles as all things breakable glimmer and sparkle. You wonder how much God had to do with this, how much of the splendor and insolence of the modern city creatively built from the disparate intentions of generations of men comes of the inspiration of God. Because it is the city of the unremarked God, the sometime-thing God, the God of history. — E.L. Doctorow

Breakable Quotes By Sonya Bateman

Cinderella never had it so good. All she got was a lousy coach and breakable shoes. — Sonya Bateman

Breakable Quotes By Jonathan Kozol

Good teachers don't approach a child of this age with overzealousness or with destructive conscientiousness. They're not drill-masters in the military or floor managers in a production system. They are specialists in opening small packages. They give the string a tug but do it carefully. They don't yet know what's in the box. They don't know if it's breakable. — Jonathan Kozol

Breakable Quotes By A.M. Homes

The weird thing about having your birthday on a school day is that by the time you get to be ten, or eleven for sure, no one at school knows it's your birthday anymore. It's not like when you're little and your mom brings cupcakes for the whole class. But even though no one knows, you walk around like it's supposed to be a national holiday. You walk around thinking that people are supposed to be nice to you, like maybe on your birthday you're ten times more breakable than on any other day. Well, it doesn't work that way. It just doesn't. — A.M. Homes

Breakable Quotes By Diane Chamberlain

There was something real breakable about Mary Ella and I was always afraid if I touched her in the wrong spot, she'd crack. — Diane Chamberlain

Breakable Quotes By Joshilyn Jackson

He was treating me like something breakable, which is different from how you treat something you yourself have broken. — Joshilyn Jackson

Breakable Quotes By Ingrid Michaelson

And we are so fragile,and our cracking nones make noise, and we are just breakable, breable, breakable girls — Ingrid Michaelson

Breakable Quotes By Ta-Nehisi Coates

Among the people in that room, all those centuries ago, my body, breakable at will, endangered in the streets, fearful in the schools, was not closest to the queen's but to her adviser's, who'd been broken down into a chair so that a queen, heir to everything she'd ever seen, could sit. — Ta-Nehisi Coates

Breakable Quotes By Peter Monn

He had never seemed breakable before, but in that moment, he was entirely fragile, and there was something beautiful in his sadness; something raw. — Peter Monn

Breakable Quotes By Taylor Swift

Even if a relationship is breakable, it doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile, beautiful, and all the things that we look for. — Taylor Swift

Breakable Quotes By Cassandra Clare

Hearts are breakable," Isabelle said. "And I think even when you heal, you're never what you were before". — Cassandra Clare

Breakable Quotes By Trevor Noah

At the time I attended a private Catholic school called Maryville College. I was the champion of the Maryville sports day every single year and my mother won the mom's trophy every single year. Why? Because she was always chasing me to kick my ass and I was always running not to get my ass kicked. Nobody ran like me and my mom. She wasn't one of those "Come over here and get your hiding [beating]" type of moms. She delivered to you free of charge. She was a thrower too. Whatever was next to her was coming at you. If it was something breakable, I had to catch it and put it down. If it broke, that would be my fault too and the ass-kicking would be that much worse. If she threw a vase at me, I'd had to catch it, put it down and then run. In a split-second I'd have to think "Is it valuable? Yes. Is it breakable? Yes. Catch it, put it down. Now run!" We had a very Tom and Jerry relationship, me and my mom. She was the strict disciplinarian, I was naughty as shit. — Trevor Noah

Breakable Quotes By Tishuan Scott

I discovered that the heart is a breakable thing, but also discovered my capacity to love another person. — Tishuan Scott

Breakable Quotes By Ta-Nehisi Coates

The forgetting is habit, is yet another necessary component of the Dream. They have forgotten the scale of theft that enriched them in slavery; the terror that allowed them, for a century, to pilfer the vote; the segregationist policy that gave them their suburbs. They have forgotten, because to remember would tumble them out of the beautiful Dream and force them to live down here with us, down here in the world. I am convinced that the Dreamers, at least the Dreamers of today, would rather live white than live free. In the Dream they are Buck Rogers, Prince Aragorn, an entire race of Skywalkers. To awaken them is to reveal that they are an empire of humans and, like all empires of humans, are built on the destruction of the body. It is to stain their nobility, to make them vulnerable, fallible, breakable humans. — Ta-Nehisi Coates

Breakable Quotes By Marie Rutkoski

He saw her. She knew that he saw her. But his eyes refused to see her. It was as if she were transparent. Like ice, or glass, or something equally breakable. — Marie Rutkoski

Breakable Quotes By Katie McGarry

I feel small against him, fragile. Like he's realized the secret I've hidden: that I'm breakable, if not already broken. — Katie McGarry

Breakable Quotes By Ta-Nehisi Coates

When it came to her son, Dr. Jones's country did what it does best - it forgot him. The forgetting is habit, is yet another necessary component of the Dream. They have forgotten the scale of theft that enriched them in slavery; the terror that allowed them, for a century, to pilfer the vote; the segregationist policy that gave them their suburbs. They have forgotten, because to remember would tumble them out of the beautiful Dream and force them to live down here with us, down here in the world. I am convinced that the Dreamers, at least the Dreamers of today, would rather live white than live free. In the Dream they are Buck Rogers, Prince Aragorn, an entire race of Skywalkers. To awaken them is to reveal that they are an empire of humans and, like all empires of humans, are built on the destruction of the body. It is to stain their nobility, to make them vulnerable, fallible, breakable humans. Dr. — Ta-Nehisi Coates

Breakable Quotes By Katie McGarry

Beth had been both wrong and right. Echo couldn't hurt anyone, especially when she seemed so breakable herself. But the need I felt to be the one to keep the world from shattering her only confirmed Beth's theory. I was falling for her and I was fucked. — Katie McGarry

Breakable Quotes By Stephenie Meyer

When I parked in front of Charlie's house, he reached over to take my face in his hands. He handled me very carefully, pressing just the tips of his fingers softly against my temples, my cheekbones, my jawline. Like I was especially breakable. Which was exactly the case
compared with him, at least.
"You should be in a good mood, today of all days," he whispered. His sweet breath fanned across my face.
"And if I don't want to be in a good mood?" I asked, my breathing uneven.
His golden eyes smoldered. "Too bad."
My head was already spinning by the time he leaned closer and pressed his icy lips against mine. As he intended, no doubt, I forgot all about my worries, and concentrated on remembering how to inhale and exhale. — Stephenie Meyer

Breakable Quotes By Mark Lawrence

And there it is, proof if proof were needed, that though God may mould the clay and fashion some of us hale, some strong, some beautiful, inside we make ourselves, from foolish things, breakable, fragile things: — Mark Lawrence

Breakable Quotes By Caitlin Moran

Because I haven't yet learned the simplest and most important thing of all: the world is difficult, and we are all breakable. So just be kind. — Caitlin Moran

Breakable Quotes By Tammara Webber

My mother always pouted that it was actually her paintings and not her charm, her beauty or her sass that made him fall in love with her.
He'd always insisted that it was definitely her sass.
I knew the truth. He fell for all those things, and when she died, it was like someone had extinguished the sun, and he had nothing left to orbit. — Tammara Webber

Breakable Quotes By Eda J. Vor

He holds his hand out for me to see it like he's cradling something delicate or breakable, an egg or like, his heart. — Eda J. Vor

Breakable Quotes By Susannah Sandlin

She glanced up at him. "Why does it matter? Why do you care?"
He'd been staring at her hands again, but jerked his gaze up to hers as if surprised by the question. He answered quickly, almost automatically. "I am a law enforcement officer. I found your aunt and saw what... that animal" -- he seemed to struggle with the words -- "I saw what he did. And we don't know why."
Ceelie nodded. "So this is how you'd treat anyone whose case you got involved with?"...
He leaned across the space that divided them, cupping his left hand around her jaw and pulling her toward him as if she were fragile, breakable. His kiss was soft, a pressure of lips, a slight parting, a promise of more. His stubble scratched her chin.
"That's the real answer." His voice was so soft the air around him seemed to soak it up. "And don't ask me what it means because I'll be damned if I know. — Susannah Sandlin

Breakable Quotes By Sylvia Day

Who do you think monsters marry, you stupid bitch?" I walked back to her. "Pretty little breakable girls? Or other monsters?" I pushed up into her face. "You got the fairy tale right. But Gideon's the beauty. I'm the beast. — Sylvia Day

Breakable Quotes By Jonathan Franzen

The ultimate goal of technology, the telos of techne, is to replace a natural world that's indifferent to our wishes - a world of hurricanes and hardships and breakable hearts, a world of resistance - with a world so responsive to our wishes as to be, effectively, a mere extension of the self. — Jonathan Franzen

Breakable Quotes By David Shields

Nonfiction, qua label, is nothing more or less than a very flexible (easily breakable) frame that allows you to pull the thing away from narrative and toward contemplation, which is all I've ever wanted. — David Shields

Breakable Quotes By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

With him, she felt breakable, precious. — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Breakable Quotes By Rhyannon Byrd

He had to remember what she was. Human. Breakable. And he was an animal who liked to play rough. — Rhyannon Byrd

Breakable Quotes By Ainslie Hogarth

Eyeglasses and teeth: both breakable, valuable things that you have to carry with you all the time. Hanging there precariously like earrings without backings, threatening to fall out, chip off, crack to the quick because of some innocent nut or seed or beer bottle. — Ainslie Hogarth

Breakable Quotes By Jennifer Rush

It was all so goddamn good. And so goddamn breakable. — Jennifer Rush

Breakable Quotes By Edith Wharton

Ut it seemed to him that the tie between husband and wife, if breakable in prosperity, should be indissoluble in misfortune. — Edith Wharton

Breakable Quotes By Tammara Webber

This ink will make your skin yours again. Maybe someday, you'll see that your skin isn't you. It's just what houses you while you're here. — Tammara Webber

Breakable Quotes By Mary Oliver

Is the soul solid, like iron?
Or is it tender and breakable, like
the wings of a moth in the beak of the owl. — Mary Oliver

Breakable Quotes By Tammara Webber

I dreamed about the future because that's what people persuade you to do when you're a kid, but that's the biggest lie of all
that you can plan. Reality is, you have no fucking clue what's coming and neither do they. — Tammara Webber

Breakable Quotes By Estelle Laure

Maybe we're all breakable. It's just a question of what breaks us. — Estelle Laure

Breakable Quotes By Tammara Webber

Having pretty much burned every bridge he crossed, our friendship was like a malfunction of his usually deficient people skills. — Tammara Webber

Breakable Quotes By A.G. Howard

Jeb releases my fingers and cups my face in his hands, barely touching me, like I'm breakable. "It's me I'm losing control of. Hundreds of sketches, and I still can't get enough of your face." He traces the dimple in my chin with his thumb. "Your neck." His palm moves along my throat. "Your ... " Both hands find my waist and drag me off the table so we're standing toe to toe. " I'm not wasting another second drawing you," he whispers against my lips, "when I can touch you instead." He presses his mouth to mine. — A.G. Howard

Breakable Quotes By John Steinbeck

It is not good to have so many breakable things around. When they are broken you become sad. It is much better never to have had them. — John Steinbeck

Breakable Quotes By Tammara Webber

I had become Harry Potter. Except I was thirteen and not magic, and my destiny, whatever it was, held no profound purpose. — Tammara Webber

Breakable Quotes By Jennifer L. Armentrout

Only a few more steps, I kept telling myself, just a few more steps and I--The box slipped out of my grasp. My knees bent as I tried to regain my grip but it was too late. The box full of totally breakable stuff started to fall.
"Son of a bitch-ass, rat bastard, mother fu - "
The box halted suddenly, a foot from the cement, startling me so strongly that my string of curses was cut off. The weight of the heavy box was completely gone, and my obviously weak arm muscles wept with relief. At first I wondered if I'd developed some kind of superpower, but then I saw two very large hands that weren't mine on either side of the box.
"I admire anyone who can successfully use the word 'rat bastard' in a sentence. — Jennifer L. Armentrout
