ONLINE STUDY GUIDE: THE CIDER HOUSE RULES BY JOHN IRVING


IMPORTANT QUOTATIONS - QUOTES AND ANALYSIS

1. “There was the human body, which was so clearly designed to want babies--and then there was the human mind, which was so confused about the matter. Sometimes the mind didn’t want babies, but sometimes the mind was so perverse that it made other people have babies they knew they didn’t want.” Pg. 23.

Dr. Larch wonders about the ambiguity of human behavior when it comes to children. He thinks these lines when he remembers the fear on the faces of the foster family that made Homer cry when he came to take Homer from them..........



............. 9. “To orphans, not every truth is wanted.” Pg. 389.

Homer’s rationalizes that sometimes it is better to lie. He thinks this after he convinces Candy to have their baby and says they can say they adopted the baby. He would not have blamed Nurses Angela and Edna if they had lied about remembering his mother.
