Anthony Marra
“For their entire lives, even before they met you, your mother and father held their love for you inside their hearts like an acorn holds an oak tree.”
Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena

David Stuart MacLean
“In the chaos of this world, where we carom and collide in the everyday turbulence, there's something about the specific gravity of the helpless individual, the lost and the fractured, that draws kindness from us, like venom from a wound.”
David Stuart MacLean

Will Schwalbe
“...when you're with someone who is dying, you may need to celebrate the past, live the present, and mourn the future all at the same time.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

David Stuart MacLean
“... it made me realize how crazy random it was not just that I was me (the billion sperm to one egg; the insane odds against all of my ancestors ever meeting each other), but also how, with the millions of electrical pulses in the brain that were needed to fire every microsecond, it was incredibly random that I continued to be me.”
David Stuart MacLean, The Answer to the Riddle Is Me: A Memoir of Amnesia

Anthony Marra
“She was fluent in four languages and yet her fists against the rusted hood were the fullest articulation of her defeat.”
Anthony Marra, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena
