Transcript of Secret Life of Bees

"How dare she? How dare
she leave me? I was her child." "After my morning of capturing bees, I spent the afternoon in the peach stand out on the highway, selling T. Ray's peaches. It was the loneliest summer job a girl could have, stuck in a roadside hut with three walls and a flat, tin roof." http://img.groundspeak.com/track/log/201312_400.jpg http://www.crystalinks.com/childsad.gif "He led us around to the front, where there were two rows of jail cells, all of them empty. Mr Gaston removed Rosaleen's handcuffs and handed her a towel from the bathroom. She pressed it against her head while he filled out papers at the desk, followed by a period of poking around for keys in a file drawer. " http://www.cullmanpd.com/images/jail.jpg http://www.math.sc.edu/~murphy/maps/scmap.gif "The man said he was on his way to visit his sister in Columbia, that he was taking his cantaloupes to the state farmer's market. I told him I was going to Tiburon to visit my aunt and Rosaleen was coming to do housework for her. It sounded lame, but he accepted it." http://rayrolston.com/prints/pink_house.jpg "The woman moved along a row of white boxes that bordered the woods beside the pink house, a house so pink it remained a scorched shock on the back of my eyelids after I looked away." http://www.beekeeping.com/miel-de-dumbea/img8.jpg "I spent my time in the honey house with August . . . I learned how to run a steam-heated knife along the super, slicing the wax cap off the combs, how to load them just so into the spinner." "Lily, I like you better than any girl I've ever known, but you have to understand, there are people who would kill boys like me for even looking at girls like you." http://www.freewebs.com/african-rapport/black+white%20hand.jpg http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/odyssey/archive/09/0909001r.jpg "'I'll write this all down for you," I said. "I'll put it in a story." I don't know if that is what he wanted to ask me, but it's something everybody wants-for someone to see the hurt done to them and set it down like it matters." "I couldn't decide which part of this scene I represented; the plants about to be rescued from the bugs or the bugs about to be murdered by the spray. There was an off chance I was really the airplane zipping over the earth creating rescue and doom everywhere I went." "Now and then sprays of rain flew over and misted our faces. Every time I refused to wipe away the wetness. It made the world seem so alive to me. I couldn't help but envey the way a good storm got everyone's attention." http://www.re-nest.com/uimages/re-nest/12-01-2008lights.jpg "Hurry up with your cereal, because you've got to make streamers and garlands, hang the Christmas lights, put out the candle holders, wash the wagon, and get out the chains." http://www.raymondpowers.com/Black%20Madonna.jpg "'Our Lady filled their hearts with escape . . .' I stared at the statue, feeling the fractured place in my heart." http://postlibrary.org/kleindl.html "You see, everyone needs a god who looks like them, Lily." "The big shock, though, was all the pictures of Mary being presented with a lily by the angel Gabriel." http://www.stmarysbythesea.org/history/stnglass/Annunciation.jpg http://www.zuguide.com/index.php#The-Secret-Life-of-Bees Quotes from the Novel "I'm unloveable" . . . "You listen to me now; there's love all around you."
