Putting Up A Front Quotes

Larson had been putting up a front like he wasnt listening, but hearing that last statement from Owen made him speak up. "Its not about that," he asserted. "It has to be," Owen disagreed. "How else am I supposed to define myself?" "Why do you have to have a definition? A label isnt gonna make you feel any better about yourself or this situation. Stop trying to put yourself in one group or the other. It doesnt matter." "It matters to me!" Owen challenged. "My whole world has been flipped upside down thanks to you! Am I just supposed to sit back and accept that?" Larson was beginning to boil over with repugnance. "Yes! Because thats what happens!" He was trying as hard a he could not to scream. "Things change and sometimes theres nothing we can do about it. Life sucks. Deal with it! Thats what Im doing. Im not doing it in the best way, but Im doing it. Im dealing with that fact that you left me.

Lungs still moving. But not because I want them to. They do those things on their own, without me even asking. So why didn't they do it for Eamon ? How could his body just give up on him like that ? Fall apart. It made him seen so fragile, and I don't want to remember him that way. He was the strongest guy I knew. How could he break so easily ? It seems like our bodies would be built better. It just doesn't fucking seem real.

— Jolene Perry

— Jodi Picoult

The process of finding and claiming your calling is a journey, one that requires you to leave what you know in search of what you don't know. Yes, there's mystery to it, but the way you go about it is by putting one foot in front of the other. And when you are presented with an opportunity, you may not just know. But you will have to act.

The spires of the town below shimmer green, the roofs steam, and smoke rises silver from the chimneys. Georg points downward. Like spiders they lurk there in their offices, their shops, their professions, each one of them ready to suck the other man dry.

True, one may call that life, if one likes, and a man may even pride himself on crawling about under it his forty years and more; but I learned at the Front that time is not the measure of life. Why should I climb down forty years? I have been putting all my money for years now on one card and the stake has always been life. I can't play now for halfpence, and small advances.

— Erich Maria Remarque
