You know perfectly well that I do not believe that marriage should be driven by thoughts of money!
I wish I read more but there always seems to be so many other things to do.
I was only sure of one thing: he wouldn't have left something like that sit there in the day room with his name tacked on it for twenty or thirty years so the Big Nurse could use it as an example of what can happen if you buck the system.
They don’t bother not talking out loud about their hate secrets when I’m nearby because they think I’m deaf and dumb. Everybody thinks so. I’m cagey enough to fool them that much. If my being half Indian ever helped me in any way in this dirty life, it helped me being cagey, helped me all these years.
I can’t see six inches in front of me through the fog and the only thing I can hear over the wail I’m making is the Big Nurse whoop and charge up the hall while she crashes patients outta her way with that wicker bag. I hear her coming but I still can’t hush my hollering. I holler till she gets there.
My dear Frankenstein, how glad I am to see you! How fortunate that you should be here at the very moment of my alighting!
Don't believe everything you hear, Nick.
I found out what your 'drug-stores' were. He and this Wolfsheim bought up a lot of side-street drug-stores here and in Chicago and sold grain alcohol over the counter. That's one of his little stunts. I picked him for a bootlegger the first time I saw him, and I wasn't far wrong.

I was taught to live happily and richly with others and to develop wholesome personality. Be a cake, in fact.
We loved the sings around the fire in the big stone fireplace or under the darned stars, where every girl merged her own spirit of happiness with the voice of the group.
Murder me! Murder me like you murdered my mother!
You look one hundred percent better when I can't see you.
Oh, you want too much! I love you now – isn't that enough? I can't help what's past.I did love him once – but I loved you too.
A gramme in time saves nine.
But after all, it's only about four months now since I've been having Henry.
I think that's rather sweet. One feels one would like to pet him. You know. Like a cat.
My word, I'm glad I'm not a Gamma.
I wish we could have brought the plane. I hate walking. And you feel so small when you're on the ground at the bottom of a hill.
In a few minutes, I shall be seeing him, talking to him, telling him that I like him-more than anybody I've ever known.
