Such a mysterious business, motherhood. How brave a woman must be to embark on it.M. L. Stedman
Margie liked a quote
13158800
But how? How can you just get over these things, darling?...You've had so much strife but you're always happy. How do you do it?'
'I choose to...I can leave myself to rot in the past, spend my time hating people for what happened, like my father did, or I can forgive and forget.'
'But it's not that easy.'
He smiled that Frank smile. 'Oh, but my treasure, it is so much less exhausting. You only have to forgive once. To resent, you have to do it all day, every day. You have to keep remembering all the bad things...I would have to make a list, a very, very long list and make sure I hated the people on it the right amount. That I did a proper job of hating, too: very Teutonic! No' - his voice became sober- 'we always have a choice. All of us.'" p.323

Patrick deWitt
“I lay in the dark thinking about the difficulties of family, how crazy and crooked the stories of a bloodline can be.”
Patrick deWitt, The Sisters Brothers

Tana French
“Our entire society is based on discontent. People wanting more and more and more. Being constantly dissatisfied with their homes, their bodies, their décor, their clothes, everything – taking it for granted that that’s the whole point of life. Never to be satisfied. If you are perfectly happy with what you got, especially if what you got isn’t even all the spectacular then you’re dangerous. You’re breaking all the rules. You’re undermining the sacred economy. You’re challenging every assumption that society is built on.”
Tana French, The Likeness

G.K. Chesterton
“The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see.”
G.K. Chesterton

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide. ”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Douglas Adams
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt
