“I suspected, however, that I wasn't homesick for anything I would find at home when I returned. The longing was for what I wouldn't find: the past and all the people and places there were lost to me.”
Alice Steinbach, Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman

“A letter is always better than a phone call. People write things in letters they would never say in person. They permit themselves to write down feelings and observations using emotional syntax far more intimate and powerful than speech will allow.”
Alice Steinbach, Educating Alice: Adventures of a Curious Woman

“And who's to say that just because something lasts only a short time, it has little value?”
Alice Steinbach, Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman
