“Her grandmother had once told her that one of life's best lessons was not being afraid to look foolish -- to just ask the question.”
Melissa Senate
“I don't want to say something cheesy like 'home is where the heart is,' but home is definitely where the heart is. And my heart is, and has always been, with you.”
Melissa Senate, The Breakup Club
“[T]he whole point is the wishing and remembering--not if what you want happens, not if remembering hurts. Because when you wish for something, you're askin. And when you ask, you're trying. And all anyone can do really is try, right?”
Melissa Senate, The Love Goddess' Cooking School
“To paraphrase Woody Allen in Annie Hall, love was too weak a word for what I felt for that tiny crying creature who had my eyes, my mouth, my hair. I lurved my daughter, my Ava. I looved her. I lurfed her.”
Melissa Senate, The Breakup Club
“It seems that wishing and hoping and dreaming and remembering can be eve more helpful than knowing what's going to happen.”
Melissa Senate, The Love Goddess' Cooking School
“Pensavo di aver superato quelle cose. Pensavo di essere orgogliosa di me stessa. Ma quelle donne, per la maggior parte del tutto sconosciute, erano riuscite a farmi sentire di nuovo l'insicura perdente che mi sentivo al liceo. Improvvisamente mi sentivo un'intrusa al tavolo delle ragazze più popolari della scuola. Perchè mi importava così tanto di quello che dicevano gli altri, di quello che pensavano gli altri? Perchè la mia autostima dipendeva così tanto dall'opinione di persone che nemmeno conoscevo? (…) Come poteva qualcuno che non conoscevo nemmeno, o qualcuno che non vedevo da dieci anni, avere così tanto potere su di me?”

“She felt like she was in Candy Land, minus the lollipops on the trees.”
Melissa Senate, The Secret of Joy
“[Y]ou can't control everything. Anything, really. Like the food we've been making. We can follow the recipe exactly as your grandmother wrote it, do everything exactly--or almost exactly--as she had, and the dish can come out so-so instead of amazing. Or it can come out amazing when you were expecting very little.”
Melissa Senate, The Love Goddess' Cooking School
“What I've learned, Mia, and what my grandmother always said, is that the whole point is wishing and remembering - not if what you want happens, not if remembering hurts. Because when you wish for something, you're asking. And when you ask, you're trying. And all everyone can really do is try, right?”
Melissa Senate, The Love Goddess' Cooking School
“The sign seemed like her fortune, her horoscope, her Magic 8 Ball answer.”
Melissa Senate, The Secret of Joy
“Tuo padre e tua madre non vorrebbero che tu incolpassi loro per averti lasciata sola. Come pensi che si sentirebbero? Vorrebbero che tu fossi felice. Che tu vivessi e ti divertissi. Pensa a quanto sarebbe orgogliosa tua madre per la tua promozione. Pensa a quanto sarebbe orgoglioso tuo padre del fatto che avevi messo tutta te stessa nel rapporto con Timothy. Loro sono lassù a fare il tifo per te.”

“(…), il giorno in cui mi aveva promesso il Plaza se avessi trovato l'uomo giusto. Quel ricordo mi colmò di gioia invece di farmi piangere. Non avevo trovato l'uomo giusto, ma per la prima volta mi rendevo conto che il messaggio di mio padre non aveva niente a che fare con quello. Lui voleva semplicemente dirmi che avrei trovato la felicità e la serenità e quello che era meglio per me, ma solo dopo aver cercato con impegno e fatica. (…) E poi, aveva voluto dirmi di non avere paura, di non smettere di cercare.”
Melissa Senate, See Jane Date
“Sometimes someone just takes a sledgehammer to your heart and even if you still have feelings for them, you can't ever quite feel the way you used to. The innocent part is all gone.”
Melissa Senate
“Somewhere, the imaginary little shoulder angel and devil were having a conversation on their respective sides, the angel offering a gentle warning that this might not be a good idea, given all the drama, the complications. But the little devil, with its pudgy belly and pointy ears, was so comical that Holly almost laughed when he rolled his eyes at the angel and whispered, "Oh, whatever".”
Melissa Senate, The Love Goddess' Cooking School
“...until she was old enough to understand about God and biology and luck, she asked.”
Melissa Senate, The Secret of Joy
