Decided

Famous quotes containing the word decided:

    By school age, many boys experience pressure to reveal inner feelings as humiliating. They think their mothers are saying to them, “You must be hiding something shameful.” And shucking clams is a snap compared to prying secrets out of a boy who’s decided to “clam up.”
    Ron Taffel (20th century)

    I decided that if the shaking of her breasts could be stopped,
    some of the fragments of the afternoon might be collected, and
    I concentrated my attention with careful subtlety to this end.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    I found my brother’s body at the bottom there, where they had thrown it away on the rocks, by the river. Like an old, dirty rag nobody wants. He was dead. And I felt I had killed him. I turned back to give myself up.... Because if a man’s life can be lived so long and come out this way, like rubbish, then something was horrible, and had to be ended one way or another. And I decided to help.
    Abraham Polonsky (b. 1910)
