“Desperate Housewives” is a television show that airs each Sunday on ABC from 9-10 EST. Here are some of the more interesting quotes/dialogues by the narrator; Mary Alice Young, as well as the main characters from the series over the years.
Mary Alice Young:
“Susan had met the enemy. And she was a slut.”
“Though he had been a policeman, Officer Hayes had never found himself in a dangerous situation until he gave advice to a woman on how to raise her children.”
“It is not enough to want to the truth. You must know where to look for it. And the truth is elusive because everyone knows where to hide.
“The search/quest for power begin when we are young. As children, we are taught that actions of goodness triumph of those that are evil. However, as we get older, we often realize life isn’t truly that simple and that traces of evil always remain.”
“An odd thing happens when we die, our senses vanish. Taste, touch, smell and sound all become a distant memory. But our sight? Our site expands and we can suddenly see the world we left behind so clearly. Of course what is visible to the dead can also be seen by the living, if they would only take the time to see it.
“After I died, I began to surrender parts of myself that were no longer necessary. My desires, ambitions, doubts….every trace of humanity was discarded. I discovered when moving through eternity, it is helpful to travel lightly.
