Helen Macdonald
“Here’s a word. Bereavement. Or, Bereaved. Bereft. It’s from the Old English bereafian, meaning ‘to deprive of, take away, seize, rob’. Robbed. Seized. It happens to everyone. But you feel it alone. Shocking loss isn’t to be shared, no matter how hard you try.”
Helen Macdonald, H is for Hawk

Kazuo Ishiguro
“Be merciful and leave this place. Leave this country to rest in forgetfulness.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, The Buried Giant

Marilynne Robinson
“But the child just lay against her, hoping to stay where she was, hoping the rain wouldn't end. Doll may have been the loneliest woman in the world, and she was the loneliest child, and there they were, the two of them together, keeping each other warm in the rain”
Marilynne Robinson

Marilynne Robinson
“...there's no pleasure in work if you don't break a sweat. Out in the fields you feel any little breeze. You know it's coming, you hear it in the trees, you almost can't wait for it, and then there it is, like a cold drink of water.”
Marilynne Robinson

Daphne du Maurier
“There was a silence on the tors that belonged to another age; an age that is past and vanished as though it had never been, an age when man did not exist, but pagan footsteps trod upon the hills. And there was a stillness in the air, and a stranger, older peace, that was not the peace of God.”
Daphne du Maurier
