“In Shoshone, there's a saying. It's a long one, and it doesn't have an English equivalent, so bear with me.

Sutummu tukummuinna. It means, I don't speak your language, and you don't speak mine. But I still understand you. I don't need to walk in your footsteps if I can see the footprints you left behind.”
Rose Christo, Why the Star Stands Still
“Seventeen years. That's how long I've known him. That's how long I've loved him. Seventeen years later and he still makes my heart feel giddy and weightless. Seventeen years later and my favorite place in the world is still the safety of his arms.

Seventeen years later and I'm still a sappy idiot. Go figure.”

“Sutummu tukummuinna.  It means:  I don't speak your language, and you don't speak mine.  But I still understand you.  I don't need to walk in your footsteps if I can see the footprints you left behind.”
Rose Christo, Why the Star Stands Still
“The world doesn't really change, does it?  We come and we go, and we think we're so important, we can't possibly comprehend how the world doesn't come tumbling down when our lives do.  It's so cold, so heartless.  So beautiful.  It doesn't matter how many of us walk across the surface of the planet.  The sun will still rise when we've finished rising with it.  The earth is no less warmer for our absence on it.”
Rose Christo, Why the Star Stands Still
“If we can die at any minute," I said, "why are you wasting your life dreading it? Why don't you just live while you have the chance?”
