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

O Jazzman

The melancholy flow of Jazz
The beat that’s gentle and slow
O Jazzman, play it again,
I don’t wanna go

The swingin’ flow of Jazz
It rolls off the tongue so fine
O Jazzman play it again
You swing real divine

[Hata Bildir]
