Bruce Springsteen
“I turn the corner off the highway onto a dark country road. I hit my high beams, scan the flat farm fields looking for deer. All clear, I twist the throttle as rushing into my arms comes home.”
Bruce Springsteen, Born to Run

Karen Thompson Walker
“How much sweeter life would be if it all happened in reverse, if, after decades of disappointments, you finally arrived at an age when you had conceded nothing, when everything was possible. I like to think about how my parents' lives once shimmered in front of them, half hidden, like buried gold.”
Karen Thompson Walker, The Age of Miracles

“this chair

you figure it out.”
John Yamrus, I Admit Nothing

Natalie Goldberg

Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within

“All of our stories, as much as they are about anything, are about loss . . . But the beauty of life is that inside these disappointments are hidden the most miraculous of blessings. What we lose and what might have been pales against what we have.”
Laura Schroff, Alex Tresniowski, An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an 11-Year-Old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive, and an Unlikely Meeting with Destiny
