“In order to live a life truly worth living you had to have strength in the face of adversity, patience when confronted by challenge, and bravery in the face of fear. As Sandy Portman I had used arrogance in the face of fear, disdain in the face of challenge, and selfishness in the face of adversity.”
Linda Francis Lee, Emily and Einstein

“But sometimes we have to be brave in order to dig deep and find answers. Even if we're not sure we're going to like the answers.”
Linda Francis Lee, The Glass Kitchen: A Novel of Sisters

“It’s over for me, isn’t it?” The old man glanced across the room mid-chew. “What do you mean?” “I’m not getting my body back.” He shrugged. “Probably not.” My head swam. It didn’t matter that at some level I had suspected the truth; hearing the words spoken out loud felt like a kick in the teeth. “Why didn’t you tell me before?” “You’re a smart guy, Alexander, and we both know you had already figured it out. That’s always the way with people—truth staring them in the face but unwilling to accept it.” He ate another cookie quietly. “But,” he added, “even if I had spelled it out you wouldn’t have believed me. You weren’t ready or willing to accept it yet. You’d just have gotten all worked up.”
Linda Francis Lee, Emily and Einstein
