Catherine Ryan Hyde It's often not easy to answer theme questions, because the importance of certain emotional topics is not always something I'm consciously aware of.…moreIt's often not easy to answer theme questions, because the importance of certain emotional topics is not always something I'm consciously aware of. But in this case I can look back on my own past--26 years ago this month I stumbled into the rooms of 12-step recovery, utterly broken, and the people there loved me and supported me until I could get back on my feet--and all seems clear. I think that kind of emerging pattern of theme is a good way for an author to look back at a body of work and discover what is truly important to her.(less)

“You think because he doesn't love you that you are worthless. You think that because he doesn't want you anymore that he is right -- that his judgement and opinion of you are correct. If he throws you out, then you are garbage. You think he belongs to you because you want to belong to him. Don't. It's a bad word, 'belong.' Especially when you put it with somebody you love. Love shouldn't be like that. Did you ever see the way the clouds love a mountain? They circle all around it; sometimes you can't even see the mountain for the clouds. But you know what? You go up top and what do you see? His head. The clouds never cover the head. His head pokes through, beacuse the clouds let him; they don't wrap him up. They let him keep his head up high, free, with nothing to hide him or bind him. You can't own a human being. You can't lose what you don't own. Suppose you did own him. Could you really love somebody who was absolutely nobody without you? You really want somebody like that? Somebody who falls apart when you walk out the door? You don't, do you? And neither does he. You're turning over your whole life to him. Your whole life, girl. And if it means so little to you that you can just give it away, hand it to him, then why should it mean any more to him? He can't value you more than you value yourself.”
Toni Morrison

“But Paying It Forward is about spontaneously offering favors, not needing to say yes when someone asks too much of you. And also, it’s about kindness rather than niceness. There’s a difference. Kindness is spontaneous and real. Niceness just mostly wants to be liked.”
Catherine Ryan Hyde, The Long, Steep Path: Everyday Inspiration from the Author of Pay It Forward
