short stories Quote from Miss Brill by Katherine Mansfield

Rate this media item:


  • On her way home she usually bought a slice of honey-cake at the baker’s. It was her Sunday treat. Sometimes there was an almond in her slice, sometimes not. It made a great difference. If there was an almond it was like carrying home a tiny present–a surprise–something that might very well not have been there. She hurried on the almond Sundays and struck the match for the kettle in quite a dashing way.

    But today she passed the baker’s by, climbed the stairs, went into the little dark room–her room like a cupboard–and sat down on the red eiderdown. She sat there for a long time. The box that the fur came out of was on the bed. She unclasped the necklet quickly; quickly, without looking, laid it inside. But when she put the lid on she thought she heard something crying.

      Why do I self-harm?
      By Eugene Grace
      I self harm because it's my way of coping.
      While others eat their stress out, sleep their problems away, and such, I self-harm. Because that's my desperate way of transferring the throbbing pain I feel in my chest to anywhere else.

      Quote from The Anthropology of Water by Anne Carson
      By Draco Malfoy
      My brother once showed me a piece of quartz that contained, he said, some trapped water older than all the seas in our world. He held it up to my ear.
      “Listen,” he said, “life and no escape.”

      Quote from It Chooses You by Miranda July
      By Draco Malfoy
      …eating and aching and sleeping and loving happen in the body. But it’s not impossible to imagine losing my appetite for those things; they aren’t always easy, and they take so much time. In twenty years I’d be interviewing air and water and heat just to remember they mattered.
