“Love makes you see a place differently, just as you hold differently an object that belongs to someone you love. If you know one landscape well, you will look at all other landscapes differently. And if you learn to love one place, sometimes you can also learn to love another.”
Anne Michaels, Fugitive Pieces

“There's a moment when love makes you believe in death for the first time. You recognize the one whose loss, even contemplated, you'll carry forever, like a sleeping child. All grief, anyone's grief...is the weight of a sleeping child.”
Anne Michaels, Fugitive Pieces

“Hold a book in your hand and you're a pilgrim at the gates of a new city.”
Anne Michaels
