“The Elephant of Depression wasn't just parked on my chest, it was relaxing there with the Walrus of Gloom and the Hippo of Bleak Friday Nights in Alone. They had beers. They were settling in.”
Hester Browne

“The best friendships are like mobile phones, I think--you can't explain exactly how they work, but you're just relieved they do.”
Hester Browne, Little Lady, Big Apple

“It's so much easier to have a crush on someone who you know isn't going to respond-it makes it nice and safe and you never have to humiliate yourself by getting knocked back.”
Hester Browne, The Little Lady Agency
