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

“Those who have never known pain or adversity are as shallow as the waves lapping on the shore."

"And what is wrong with being shallow?" I'd asked him.

"What lies beneath the surface of shallow waters? Nothing. It's only when you go deeper that the ocean comes alive. The deeper you go, the more mysteries and surprises await.”
Mara Rutherford, Crown of Coral and Pearl

“Hiding our scars doesn't mean they're not really there. Just as beauty cannot disguise who we really are beneath the surface.”
Mara Rutherford, Crown of Coral and Pearl

“I will see you again, in this life or another. Now go, meet your destiny.”
Mara Rutherford, Crown of Coral and Pearl
