Curtain Quotes

V was half way down the hall when he heard a yelp. He hightailed it back, barging through the door. "What? Whats ... " "Im going bald!" V whipped back the shower curtain and frowned. "What are you talking about? Youve still got your hair ... " "Not my head! My body, you idiot! Im going bald!" Vishous glanced down. Butchs torso and legs were shedding, a rush of dark brown fuzz pooling around the drain. V started laughing. "Think of it this way. At least you wont have to worry about shaving your back as you get old, true? No manscaping for you." He was not surprised when a bar of soap came firing at him.
— J.R. Ward —

Joy and truth both have a way
of peeking through any dark curtain.

— Margarita Engle

Conscience is the window of our spirit, evil is the curtain

— Doug Horton

They are enthusiasts, devotees. Addicts. Something about the circus stirs their souls, and they ache for it when it is absent. They seek each other out, these people of such specific like mind. They tell of how they found the circus, how those first few steps were like magic. Like stepping into a fairy tale under a curtain of stars ... When they depart, they shake hands and embrace like old friends, even if they have only just met, and as they go their separate ways they feel less alone than they had before.

— Erin Morgenstern

Don't thank me,' Mr. Curtain called as the door slid closed. 'Impress me!

— Trenton Lee Stewart

He greatly valued his possessions, chiefly because they were his, and derived genuine pleasure from contemplating a painting, a statuette, a rare lace curtain - no matter what - after he had bought it and placed it among his household gods.

— Kate Chopin

He would never be any different and now Scarlett realize the truth and accepted it without emotion - that until he died Gerald would always be waiting for Ellen, always listening for her. Her was in some dim borderline country where time was standing still and Ellen was always in the next room. The mainspring of his existence was taken away when she died and with it has gone his bounding assurance, his impudence and his restless vitality. Ellen was the audience before which the blustering drama of Gerald O'Hara had been played Now the curtain had been rung down forever, the footlights dimmed and the audience suddenly vanished, while the stunned old actor remained on his empty stage, waiting for his cues.

— Margaret Mitchell

I don't trust people to accept who I am in process. I'm the kind of person who wants to present my most honest, authentic self to the world-so I hide backstage and rehearse honest and authentic lines until the curtain opens.

— Donald Miller

When running a Ponzi scheme, how does one avoid enormous, unexpected withdrawals - runs on the bank, so to speak - that would pull back the curtain and reveal a little man blowing smoke? One way would be to attract a core of investors who could be counted on to never withdraw more than a small percentage of principal each year.

— Mitchell Zuckoff

I've been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen, and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I've had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it.

— Adele

The distinction that Jews have themselves always made between Jews of German origin and Jews of East European origin is as stringent as that between Boston Brahmin and Boston lace-curtain Irish, though much finer.

— Diana Trilling

This cruel age has deflected me,
like a river from this course.
Strayed from its familiar shores,
my changeling life has flowed
into a sister channel.
How many spectacles I've missed:
the curtain rising without me,
and falling too. How many friends
I never had the chance to meet.

— Anna Akhmatova

Mass inflation, welfare line, gross economy, trade it all for what's behind curtain number three.

— Joe Walsh

People behind the Iron curtain have such an incredible image of America and jazz. I expected to find a Gerry Mulligan or Miles Davis on every corner ... I almost expected a Shorty Rogers to deliver the milk, a Bud Shank to be the mailman.

— Gabor Szabo

One does odd things. You see, when one's young one doesn't feel part of it yet, the human condition; one does things because they are not "for good"; one thinks everything is a rehearsal - to be repeated ad lib, to be put right when the curtain goes up in earnest. One day you know that the curtain was up all the time. That was the performance.

— Sybille Bedford

For me the world has always been more of a puppet show. But when one looks behind the curtain and traces the strings upward he finds they terminate in the hands of yet other puppets, themselves with their own strings which trace upward in turn, and so on. In my own life I saw these strings whose origins were endless enact the deaths of great men in violence and madness. Enact the ruin of a nation.

— Cormac McCarthy

Tree at my window, window tree, My sash is lowered when night comes on; But let there never be curtain drawn Between you and me.

— Robert Frost

I am convinced that of all the people on the two sides of the great curtain, the space pilots are the least likely to hate each other. Like the late Erich von Holst, I believe that the tremendous and otherwise not quite explicable public interest in space flight arises from the subconscious realization that it helps to preserve peace. May it continue to do so!

— Konrad Lorenz
