Kitchen Quotes

C. J. Cherryh

In those days kitchen matches were heavy-duty implementsmore like signal flares than the weedy sticks we get today.

How absurd it must seem for an immortal soul to be destined for Heaven or Hell, and yet be sitting in a kitchen, as a maid, or to see oneself objectified as a mechanic! how falsely the usual sunrise waked us, the clock dial, the city street the job!
