Where I really love studying the friendships between these literary folks, I did not as much enjoy the tedious publishing history that filled the second half of this book. Just... not really what I signed up for.

“Mrs. Sloane chuckled, taking off her glasses to clean them. “One never knows what might be hiding in the cellar,” she winked at Wallis. “Or the closets or libraries, for that matter.”
Megan Beam , Bring

“Mrs. Sloane smiled, “Oh, we’re never really done, child. But I don’t know what happens. Not really.” Wallis blinked and Mrs. Sloane’s face flashed young again—long, red hair and big green eyes. “I do know, however, that the older I get, the less it worries me. It’s like death is something I remember from a long time ago. Memories are funny things, though. You never really know from which direction they’re hitting you. Mostly your past, sure. But sometimes you can find yourself remembering things you’re not sure have really happened yet.”
Megan Beam, Bring

“Just keep growing up as yourself, love. That’s how all of the little pieces of us learn to be gathered together into one person anyway.”
Megan Beam, Bring

“We sleep to time's hurdy-gurdy; we wake, if ever we wake, to the silence of God. And then, when we wake to the deep shores of time uncreated, then when the dazzling dark breaks over the far slopes of time, then it's time to toss things, like our reason, and our will; then it's time to break our necks for home.
There are no events but thoughts and the heart's hard turning, the heart's slow learning where to love and whom. The rest is merely gossip, and tales for other times.”
Annie Dillard, Holy the Firm

“I had been my whole life a bell, and never knew it until at that moment I was lifted and struck.”
Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

“Shall I tell you the secret of the whole world? It is that we have only known the back of the world. We see everything from behind, and it looks brutal. That is not a tree, but the back of a tree. That is not a cloud, but the back of a cloud. Cannot you see that everything is stooping and hiding a face? If we could only get round in front--”
G.K. Chesterton, The Man Who Was Thursday

“I exist as I am, that is enough,
If no other in the world be aware I sit content,
And if each and all be aware I sit content.
One world is aware, and by the far the largest to me, and that is myself,
And whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years,
I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness, I can wait.”
Walt Whitman

“For one thing, she pronounced flowers 'flars' and I couldn't let it slide.”
James Thurber
