It's as if the fasion designers decided that once a woman hit a certain weight, she'd have no need for business suits, for skirts and blazers, for anything except glorified sweatsuits, and they tried to apologize for dressing us like overaged Teletubbies by silk-screening daisies on the tops. -- Jennifer Weiner

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000113030
I should have been moved. I wasn't. It was as if I'd been frozen, as if I was now a woman made of ice, and he'd come at me not with a torch or even a candle, but with a toothpick, and was plink plink plinking against the smooth impenetrability of my body. I couldn't feel a thing. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000122429

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000206359
Change the setting, change the mood ... She'd taught him to make himself go outside if he was in, or inside if he was out, to interrupt the plummet with something as simple as making a cup of tea or spending a few minutes working on crossword puzzles. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000207663
It's like if a young woman writes it, then it's chick lit. We don't care if she's slaying vampires or working as a nanny or living in Philadelphia. It's chick lit, so who cares? You know what we call what men write? Books. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000212550
Did any love ever feel as sweet as first love? Were we all just damaged goods now, battered cans in the grocery store sale bin, day old bread, marked down at the registered, hoping that someone would look past the obvious flaws and love us enough to take us home? -- Jennifer Weiner

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000274313
Do not postpone life until two pounds form now. Go on the trip. Wear the strapless dress. Go zip lining, or water-skiing, or swimming with the dolphins. None of us are guaranteed a future. Putting ff joy until you're the right size could mean you'll never experience it at all. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000278828

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000360663

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000389366
I will love myself, and my body, for what it can do- because it is strong enough to lift, to walk, to ride a bicyle up a hill, to embrace the people I love and hold them fully, and to nurture a new life. I will love myself because I am sturdy. Because I did not -will not- break. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000392101
I think it's a very old and deep-seated double standard that holds that when a man writes about family and feelings, it's literature with a capital L, but when a woman considers the same topics, it's romance, or a beach book - in short, it's something unworthy of a serious critic's attention. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000399161
The measure of a man is, does he know how to love. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000417879

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000474922
So here I am. Twenty-eight years old, with thirty looming on the horizon. Drunk. Fat. Alone. Unloved. And, worst of all, a cliche, Ally McBeal and Bridget Jones put together, which was probably about how much I weighed ... -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000485755
Holding a bottle of Evian water -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000487195
They say - "they" being the great philosophers, or possibly the cast of Seinfeld - that breaking up is like pushing over a Coke machine. You can't just do it, you have to set the thing in motion, rock it back and forth a few times. -- Jennifer Weiner

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000538297

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000539137

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000558066
The thing about bad decisions is that they don't feel like bad decisions when you're making them. They feel like the obvious choice, the of-course-that-makes-sense move. They feel, somehow, inevitable. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000578892
People are like that. They can only give you what they have inside. So if this Sydelle character is giving you so much trouble, it's because she's nothing but trouble on the inside. She's just delivering what's in her heart into the universe. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000586934

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000621452
I knew that it was no fault of ours. We weren't to blame, I thought to myself. I could let it go; I could set the burden down, I could be free.
Except, of course, that knowing something in your head is different than feeling it in your heart. -- Jennifer Weiner

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000657990

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000686011
I don't write literary fiction - I write books that are entertaining, but are also, I hope, well-constructed and thoughtful and funny and have things to say about men and women and families and children and life in America today. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000686483
Character is character and voice is voice, which translates nicely from writing novels to writing TV. But the process is different. You have a writer's room, people pitch you jokes and you collaborate. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000730039
One of its ears stuck straight up, the other flopped as it ran, and I remembered something I'd read somewhere

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000735617
Love", I said, "is the rug they pull out from under you. Love is Lucy always lifting the football at the last second so that Charlie Brown falls on his ass.

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000746270

My chest. All I'd wanted was for someone to be happy for me - happy with me, straight-up happy, not happy with questions, or happy with reservations, or happy but confused, or not happy at all ... and there was no one in my life, including my husband, who fit the bill. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000769976

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000889810
Maybe love was a myth anyhow, a brew of hormones and fantasy, evolution's way of getting men and women together long enough for them to procreate,back in the day when girls got pregnant at twelve, were pregnant or nursing for the next twenty years, and were dead of the plague by forty. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000915180

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000945420
Many writers secretly long to be performers. You always get the 'if you weren't a writer' question. I would be a back-up singer, to stand in the back and go like 'do, do, do.' -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 000950889
Once, she'd cried, telling me that she thought she should have noticed, should have seen that I was in trouble, should have done something. I told her it was my problem and my job to solve it. "Just be my friend," I said. "That's what I need most. -- Jennifer Weiner

When I was five I learned to read. Books were a miracle to me - white pages, black ink, and new worlds and different friends in each one. To this day, I relish the feeling of cracking a binding for the first time, the anticipation of where I'll go and whom I'll meet inside. -- Jennifer Weiner
Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 001076169
husband, Dave, my daughter, and I had moved out of Cen- ter City and into a house in Haverford that I refused to call a McMansion, even though that's exactly what it was, but I loved Ellie's pediatrician so much that 1'd never even tried to find a suburban replacement. -- Jennifer Weiner

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 001093733

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 001149652
The difference between people who believe they have books inside of them and those who actually write books is sheer cussed persistence - the ability to make yourself work at your craft, every day - the belief, even in the face of obstacles, that you've got something worth saying. -- Jennifer Weiner

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 001168144
Well, you can't control what they do, but you can control how you respond to it ... whether you allow it to drive you crazy, or occupy all of your thoughts, or whether you note what they're doing, consider it, and make a conscious decision as to how much you'll let it affect you -- Jennifer Weiner

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 001589423
If you write chick lit, and if you're a New Yorker, and if your book becomes the topic of pop-culture fascination, the paper might make dismissive and ignorant mention of your book.

Jennifer Weiner Quotes : pic 001596314
