“People think loneliness is absence. It isn't. It's a filling up, a rising, spilling tide that crashes into every gully and chasm of your mind and soul until you're choked with emptiness, awash with desolation, thrashing in the foam of it, reaching for a hand to hold and yet finding no hand, no refuge, no comfort.”
Sheila Turner Johnston, Maker of Footprints

Sue Monk Kidd
“People can start out one way, and by the time life gets through with them they end up completely different.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

J.K. Rowling
“He tried to give his wife pleasure in little ways, because he had come to realize, after nearly two decades together, how often he disappointed her in the big things. It was never intentional. They simply had very different notions of what ought to take up most space in life.”
J.K. Rowling, The Casual Vacancy

J.K. Rowling
“Naturally Shirley had known, as they slid stock words and phrases back and forth between them like beads on an abacus, that Howard must be as brimful of ecstasy as she was; but to express these feelings out loud, when the news of death was still fresh in the air, would have been tantamount to dancing naked and shrieking obscenities, and Howard and Shirley were clothed, always, in an invisible layer of decorum that they never laid aside.”
J.K. Rowling, The Casual Vacancy

“We are only moments away from the past. But it only takes a moment for everything to change, for the world to wobble on its axis and make the familiar strange.”
Sheila Turner Johnston, Maker of Footprints
