“This isn't normal. This isn't how normal people think.

Elizabeth Haynes, Into the Darkest Corner

“You never realise what loneliness is until it creeps up on you - like a disease, it is, something that happens to you gradually.”
Elizabeth Haynes, Human Remains

“Nobody can see pain. They have no frame of reference for pain that's happening to someone else. They can only see inactivity - which they interpret as laziness.”
Elizabeth Haynes, Human Remains
