Suzanne Finnamore

  • We have similar goals, which are to do as little as possible, to get paid as much as possible, and to complain constantly while this is going on.

  • Time, in therapy more than anywhere else, is money.

  • We never remember what is important, only what matters to us.

  • Hands reach out for us, the hands of middle management, the people who stop exciting things from happening.

  • I thought about how people don't get old, not really. They are their absolute selves until the last second when they die and go somewhere else, leaving their body like a tire on the side of the road.

  • In the end it all comes down to two faces staring at each other across a table. They should tell people that.

  • Everything costs a thousand dollars, except the things that cost more than a thousand dollars. That's information for anyone planning a wedding.

  • Such silence has an actual sound, the sound of disappearance.

  • I was steeped in denial, but my body knew.

  • Delusion detests focus and romance provides the veil.

  • I used to loathe ambivalence; now I adore it. Ambivalence is my new best friend.

  • Surprises, I feel now, are primarily a form of violence.

Suzanne Finnamore, U.S. writer

(1959)
