“It's natural, as our loved ones age, to start grieving their loss even before we lose them.”
Steven Rowley, Lily and the Octopus

“To focus, I think of how dogs are witnesses. How they are present for our most private moments, how they are there when we think of ourselves as alone. They witness our quarrels, our tears, our struggles, our fears, and all of our secret behaviors that we have to hide from our fellow humans. They witness without judgment.”
Steven Rowley, Lily and the Octopus

“A heart is judged not by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.”
Steven Rowley, Lily and the Octopus
