Quotes by Molly Dektar  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I grounded myself by breathing into my scarf. Memories darted around the brown trees, thousands of them edging up on me. The past for me was 100 percent sad, the way that sometimes weather sites say it's 100 percent humidity outside, but it's still not raining.”
Molly Dektar, The Ash Family

“The more knowledge you have, the more you can love," he said. "Love comes from understanding, not from ignorance.”
Molly Dektar, The Ash Family
