Biography of Charlotte Riddle

Few of my favorite quotes:

'It could be
the place my words are looking for
will be so small
That there will be room for nothing
-But silence
Or an ocean so large
That some waves will never reach
The sound of the shore.'
-from Suppose, Siv Cedering

'It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.'
-from Phenominal Woman, Maya Angelou

'Watson here will tell you I never can resist a touch of the dramtic.'-'You mean well, Watson. Shall I demonstrate your own ignorance? '-'Once you have eliminated all of which is impossible, then whatever's left, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.' -Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

'And the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
Thrilled me- filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
''Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door-
Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -
This it is, and nothing more.'
-from The Raven, Edgar Allen Poe

'A wretched soul, bruised with adversity,
We bid be quiet when we hear it cry;
But were we burdened with like weight of pain,
As much or more we should ourselves complain.'
-William Shakespeare

'And you think that I don't know
Where you're coming from'
-from Keb' Mo' lyrics {Just Like You}

'Jazzman,
take my blues away.
Make my pain the same as yours
with every change you play.'
-from Carole King lyrics {Jazzman}

'Come on, babe
Why don't we paint the town?
And all that Jazz..'
-from the musical Chicago lyrics {All That Jazz}

'Be careful where you swim, my sweet'
-from The Shark, John Ciardi

'They laid her out in her cocaine clothes.
She wore a snow-bird hat and a crisom rose;
On her headstone you'll find this refrain:
'She died as she lived, sniffing cocaine.''
-from Cocaine Lil, Anonymous

'Is this, baby, what you were born to feel, and do, and be? '
-from American Rhapsoy (4) , Kenneth Fearing

'Does my haughtiness OFFEND you?
Don't you take awful hard
Cause I LAUGH like I've got gold mines
In my own backyard.'
-from 'Still I Rise', Maya Angelou

Sweet Swingin' Jazz Band

O sweet sound of saxophone,
Swingin’ in my head
The beat that’s makin’ me
Jump right outta bed
Here come the trumpets,
Tootin’ right along
Tonguing that old
Bebop song
Keep right up,

[Hata Bildir]
