“Youth isn't wasted on the young, literature is.”
Julia Claiborne Johnson, Be Frank With Me

“With children in the house, you’re on call around the clock whether you like it or not. You don’t get the luxury of enough sleep when that was what you needed most to keep yourself from going over the edge.”
Julia Claiborne Johnson, Be Frank With Me

“To pick you up, Frank, I'm going to have to put both my hands on you", I said. "That will be alright", he said. "Until you master the art of levitation.”
Julia Claiborne Johnson, Be Frank With Me
