Quotes by Megan E. Freeman  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I love the library.
My own personal book church.
Safety.

But I'm losing patience with fiction.
The challenges and triumphs of
fictional characters only make me
feel worse about myself.
Novels end nicely and neatly
with all obstacles overcome.
Loose ends tied up.

My own story just keeps unraveling
with depressing predictability.”
Megan E. Freeman, Alone

“maybe God
sends us nightmares so our living reality doesn’t seem so bad when we wake up
until we wake up
and remember
we are living in a nightmare we can’t escape
except by going
to sleep”
Megan E. Freeman, Alone

“There is something about poetry being nonfiction
but not factual.
The most intimate personal thoughts —things people would never dream
of saying out loud in middle school— right there on the page in black and white.”
Megan E. Freeman, Alone
