“Just because someone hands you a ration of garbage doesn't mean you have to keep hold.”
― Randy Susan Meyers (Author)

Ilie Ruby
“Love isn't tested by how good it makes you feel. It's tested by whether you are brave enough to feel every part of it.”
Ilie Ruby

Debra Dean
“How may one describe enchantment? As he sang, his countenance softened, and without benefit of costume or any other artifice of the stage, the Gaspari I knew faded and was transfored into something eerily beautiful. A delicate hand, rising and turning like a vine, seemed to unfurl this otherworldy sound into the air. Though I could not translate the words, there was no need, for the sound went straight to my soul, transcending the poor and broken language we mortals must use. I slipped gratefully out of my body and floated on the current of music, feeling that all of us round the table were a single spirit, a single being. I was filled with such love. The voice soared, wave upon wave, until the last note, quivering with tenderness, put us ashore again too soon.”
Debra Dean, The Mirrored World

Rachel Simon
“she realized it was not the rereading that led to fresh insights. It was the rereader—because when a person is changing inside, there are inevitably new things to see”
Rachel Simon, The Story of Beautiful Girl

“I have to believe in God. Because if I didn't believe in God...I'd have to believe in man.”
Lindor Joelle, Frozen Time
