“I’m going to fight. I’m going to fight for you. You need to remember that.”
R.L. Griffin, Seamless

“She was held together by a thread. Not even a strong fishing wire, but the kind of thread that could fray and break in the wind. A thread that could unravel at any moment, scattering and smashing all the pieces of her that she as trying desperately to keep together.”
R.L. Griffin, By a Thread

“Why keep putting yourself back together if you’re just going to keep breaking apart?”
R.L. Griffin, Seamless

“Everything that comes together falls apart. When you stopped wishing things wouldn't fall apart, you stopped suffering when they did.”
John Green

“Time makes things tolerable. Time gives you perspective on events that shake your world to the core. Time allows you to move forward. But time doesn’t change the pain that sits in your gut.”
R.L. Griffin, By a Thread

“Sometimes I write drunk and revise sober, and sometimes I write sober and revise drunk. But you have to have both elements in creation — the Apollonian and the Dionysian, or spontaneity and restraint, emotion and discipline.”
Peter De Vries, Reuben, Reuben

“It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
Ernest Hemingway
