“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. —ANAÏS NIN”
Abbi Waxman, The Garden of Small Beginnings

“I don’t think she let herself go Charlie, I think she just let’s herself be. I can’t expect Frances to do all that she's done in the last twenty years including simply gaining twenty years and not look different from the twenty-five year old I feel in love with.
If she’s comfortable carrying extra weight, fair enough, if it bothers her enough she’ll change it.
I don’t get it when guys are like ‘oh my wife isn’t like she used to be’. Why would she be? Don’t you expect to change as you get older? I mean I’ll look at the twenty-three year old as happily as the next guy. They’re pretty and their bodies are gorgeous, but what the f*** would we talk about, juice cleanses and youtube?”
Abbi Waxman, Other People's Houses

“She’d read somewhere that hurricanes had winds so powerful that a piece of straw could pierce an oak, thrown so hard it became deadly beyond its weight. She was the straw, pushed by forces she only barely understood.”
Abbi Waxman, Other People's Houses
