There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you.Beatrix Potter

“If summer had a flavor, it was pink bubble gum.”
Sarah Jio, The Violets of March

“The definition of a true friend is not someone who swoops in when you're going through a rough patch. True friendship is when someone can appreciate your happiness - celebrate your happiness, even when she's not necessarily happy herself.”
Sarah Jio

“Great love endures time, heartache, and distance. And even when all seems lost, true love lives on.”
Sarah Jio, The Violets of March

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
Hippocrates

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
Plato

“...Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word it always was. Let it be spoken without effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well.”
Rosamunde Pilcher, September

“There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you.”
Beatrix Potter
