Kathleen Kelly quotes

View Quote [to Joe Fox, after first meeting him in "The Shop Around the Corner"] I started helping my mother here after school when I was six years old. I used to watch her, and it wasn't that she was selling books, it was that she was helping people become whoever they were going to turn out to be. When you read a book as a child it becomes part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your life does.
View Quote [to Joe Fox] You were spying on me, weren't you? You probably rented those children.
View Quote [to Joe Fox] 'Joe. Just call me Joe.' As if you were one of those stupid 22-year-old girls with no last name. 'Hi, I'm Kimberley.' 'Hi, I'm Janice.' What's wrong with them? Don't they know you're supposed to have a last name? It's like they're a whole generation of ****tail waitresses.

View Quote [to Joe Fox (NY152) in email] Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, valuable, but small. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven't been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around? I don't really want an answer. I just want to send this cosmic question out into the void. So goodnight, dear void.
View Quote [to Joe Fox (NY152) in email] Once I read a story about a butterfly in the subway, and today I saw one. I couldn't believe it. It got on at 42nd -- and got off at 59th, where I assume it was going to Bloomindale's to buy a hat that will turn out to be a mistake. As almost all hats are.
View Quote [to Christina] It will be really easy to stop seeing him, because .... I'm not.
View Quote [to Joe Fox] I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly.
