“The human heart has a way of making itself large again even after it's been broken into a million pieces.”
Robert James Waller, The Bridges of Madison County

“In a universe of ambiguity, this kind of certainty comes only once, and never again, no matter how many lifetimes you live.”
Robert James Waller, The Bridges of Madison County

“It's clear to me now that I have been moving toward you and you toward me for a long time. Though neither of us was aware of the other before we met, there was a kind of mindless certainty bumming blithely along beneath our ignorance that ensured we would come together. Like two solitary birds flying the great prairies by celestial reckoning, all of these years and lifetimes we have been moving toward one another.”
