“There are random moments - tossing a salad, coming up the driveway to the house, ironing the seams flat on a quilt square, standing at the kitchen window and looking out at the delphiniums, hearing a burst of laughter from one of my children's rooms - when I feel a wavelike rush of joy. This is my true religion: arbitrary moments of of nearly painful happiness for a life I feel privileged to lead.”
Elizabeth Berg, The Art of Mending

“There is love in holding and there is love in letting go.”
Elizabeth Berg, The Year of Pleasures

“I hadn't realized how much I'd been needing to meet someone I might be able to say everything to.”
Elizabeth Berg, Talk Before Sleep
