David Sedaris
“Real love amounts to withholding the truth, even when you're offered the perfect opportunity to hurt someone's feelings”
David Sedaris, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

“A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.”
Bernard Meltzer

Calvin Trillin
“The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.”
Calvin Trillin

Diane Setterfield
“Our lives are so important to us that we tend to think the story of them begins with our birth. First there was nothing, then I was born...Yet that is not so. Human lives are not pieces of string that can be separated out from a knot of others and laid out straight. Families are webs. Impossible to touch one part of it without setting the rest vibrating. Impossible to understand one part without having a sense of the whole. - Vida Winter”
Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale
