Anne Fortier
“Everything we say is a story. But nothing we say is just a story.”
Anne Fortier, Juliet

Anne Fortier
“She laughed out loud, a warm, knowing laughter that made me once again wonder about the secret ingredient in these women’s lives. Whatever it was, I was clearly missing it.

Anne Fortier, Juliet

“Look, I just wanna make one thing absolutely clear. I don't believe in guns. I just want peace. Okay?"
Alessandro stopped in the middle of the corridor, took out the gun and wrapped my hand around it before I realized what he was doing. "Can you feel that? That's a gun. It exists. And there are a lot of people out there who do believe in it. So, excuse me for taking care of them so you can have your peace.”
Anne Fortier, Juliet

Anne Fortier
“I must have you, completely, at my table and in my bed, or I shall waste away like a starving prisoner. There you have it; forgive the lack of poesy.”
Anne Fortier, Juliet
