“All my life I cherished the possibility of escape”

“Everything in life has some good in it. And when something awful happens, the goodness stands out even more”

“If you are always angry, always yelling at people, ultimately that just means you depend on them”

“… (Mom) you were like a blossom softly unfurling its petals on a cliff somewhere…”

“This is what it means to be loved… when someone wants to touch you, to be tender…”

“I love feeling the rhythm of other people’s lives. It’s like traveling”

“When you’re in a state of homogeneity, it means you’ve lost yourself”

“You see things through the filter of your own sensibility”

“Who says that you can’t warm your frozen limbs in the faint heat of a flicker of hope?”
