“Her grandmother had once told her that one of life's best lessons was not being afraid to look foolish -- to just ask the question.”

“I don't want to say something cheesy like 'home is where the heart is,' but home is definitely where the heart is. And my heart is, and has always been, with you.”
Melissa Senate, The Breakup Club

“[T]he whole point is the wishing and remembering--not if what you want happens, not if remembering hurts. Because when you wish for something, you're askin. And when you ask, you're trying. And all anyone can do really is try, right?”
Melissa Senate, The Love Goddess' Cooking School
