“Ghosts don't haunt us. That's not how it works. They're present among us because we won't let go of them.”
Sue Grafton, M is for Malice

“Ideas are easy. It's the execution of ideas that really separates the sheep from the goats.”
Sue Grafton

“You can’t save others from themselves because those who make a perpetual muddle of their lives don’t appreciate your interfering with the drama they’ve created. They want your poor-sweet-baby sympathy, but they don’t want to change.”
Sue Grafton, T is for Trespass
