“We are defined not so much by what we're reading, as by what we're reading next.”
Julia Keller

“The past was a tricky bastard. It called and called to you—and when you turned around and tried to grasp it, it disappeared.”
Julia Keller, Last Ragged Breath

“Maybe if you carried bad memories around long enough, they started to change how you walked, how you talked. How you thought.”
Julia Keller
