Meg Wolitzer Quotes.

1. "Being a teacher at a restaurant in the town where you lived was a little like being a TV star..."
- Quote by Meg Wolitzer

2. "But it had no doubt sprung from true emotion, for all that parents ever wanted, really, was for you to love their child the way they did."
- Quote by Meg Wolitzer

3. "New teachers were just a part of life, for a few days after one arrived, squawks of interest were emitted from various corners, but then they died away as the teacher was absorbed like everyone else...before you knew it, the fresh ones seemed to have been teaching there forever too, or else they didn't last very long, and were gone before you'd gotten to know them."
- Quote by Meg Wolitzer

- Quote by Meg Wolitzer

6. "People are always saying these things about how there's no need to read literature anymore-that it won't help the world. Everyone should apparently learn to speak Mandarin, and learn how to write code for computers. More young people should go into STEM fields: science, technology, engineering, and math. And that all sounds to be true and reasonable. But you can't say that what you learn in English class doesn't matter. That great writing doesn't make a difference. I'm different. It's hard to put into words, but it's true. Words matter."
- Quote by Meg Wolitzer

7. "The students lurked on the edges of their teachers' lives for years, and brought bulletins from their own lives, which over time began to include lovers, ambitions, an upward trajectory."

8. "I think having the knowledge, plus the experiences you've lived through, make you definitely not fragile. They make you brave."
- Quote by Meg Wolitzer

9. "Cilantro was briefly everywhere, creating miniflurries of conversation about whether or not you liked cilantro, which invariably included someone in the room saying, "I can't stand cilantro. It tastes like soap."
- Quote by Meg Wolitzer

10. "There were the signed, spiral-bound Spirit-in-the-Woods yearbooks from three summers in a row and the aerial photograph of everyone at camp the second summer. In it, Ethan's feet were planted on Jule's head, and Jule's feet were planted on Goodman's head, and so on and so on. And didn't it always go like that-body parts not quite lining up the way you wanted them to, all of it a little bit off, as if the world itself were an animated sequence of longing and envy and self-hatred and grandiosity and failure and success, a strange and endless cartoon loop that you couldn't stop watching, because, despite all you knew by now, it was still so interesting."
- Quote by Meg Wolitzer
