“You know how people say they would die for their kids? I never got that. What good are we dead? What’s hard is living for your kids. We only matter because we matter to them. It’s doubly true now.”
Jo Furniss, All the Little Children

“A moment when the worst had already happened, so there was nothing left to worry about. I wanted to stop forever in that pause between cause and effect. A place where I didn’t have to be responsible for everybody all of the time.”
Jo Furniss, All the Little Children
