„... Во второй половине октября мир пахнет, как теплый пирог.“

„Не забудь радоваться жизни, по которой идешь.“


„Books may well be the only true magic.“

„Sometimes the right thing feels all wrong until it is over and done with.“ Practical Magic

„There are some things, after all, that Sally Owens knows for certain: Always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder. Keep rosemary by your garden gate. Add pepper to your mashed potatoes. Plant roses and lavender, for luck. Fall in love whenever you can.“ Practical Magic

„It doesn't matter what people tell you. It doesn't matter what they might say. Sometimes you have to leave home. Sometimes, running away means you're headed in the exact right direction.“ Practical Magic

„My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage." - Aunt Frances“ Practical Magic

„The moon is always jealous of the heat of the day, just as the sun always longs for something dark and deep.“ Practical Magic


„When I walk, I walk with you. Where I go, you're with me always.“ The Story Sisters

„Every fairy tale had a bloody lining. Every one had teeth and claws.“ The Ice Queen

„People hide their truest nature. I understood that; I even applauded it. What sort of world would it be if people bled all over the sidewalks, if they wept under trees, smacked whomever they despised, kissed strangers, revealed themselves?“ The Ice Queen

„You build your world around someone, and then what happens when he disappears? Where do you go- into pieces, into atoms, into the arms of another man? You go shopping, you cook dinner, you work odd hours, you make love to someone else on June nights. But you're not really there, you're someplace else where there is blue sky and a road you don't recognize. If you squint your eyes, you think you see him, in the shadows, beyond the trees. You always imagine that you see him, but he's never there. It's only his spirit, that's what's there beneath the bed when you kiss your husband, there when you send your daughter off to school. It's in your coffee cup, your bathwater, your tears. Unfinished business always comes back to haunt you, and a man who swears he'll love you forever isn't finished with you until he's done.“ Here on Earth


„If every life is a river, then it's little wonder that we do not even notice the changes that occur until we are far out in the darkest sea. One day you look around and nothing is familiar, not even your own face.
My name once meant daughter, grandaughter, friend, sister, beloved. Now those words mean only what their letters spell out; Star in the night sky. Truth in the darkness.
I have crossed over to a place where I never thought I'd be. I am someone I would have never imagined. A secret. A dream. I am this, body and soul. Burn me. Drown me. Tell me lies. I will still be who I am.“
Incantation

„... he had a way of taking your hand which made it clear he'd have to be the one to let go."

From Alice Hoffman's "Local Girls", pg.102.“
Local Girls

„Trouble is just like love, after all; it comes in unannounced and takes over before you've had a chance to reconsider, or even to think.“ Practical Magic

„When all is said and done, the weather and love are the two elements about which one can never be sure.“ Here on Earth
