Quotes by Stephanie Land  (?)

“I love you, I whispered to myself. I’m here for you. Reassurance of self-love was all I had.”
Stephanie Land, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive

“Every single parent teetering on poverty does this. We work, we love, we do. And the stress of it all, the exhaustion, leaves us hollowed. Scraped out. Ghosts of our former selves. That’s how I felt for those few days after the accident, like I wasn’t fully connected to the ground when I walked. I knew that at any moment, a breeze could come and blow me away.”
Stephanie Land, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive

“I felt like sitting down meant I wasn't doing enough--like the sort of lazy welfare recipient I was assumed to be. Time lounging to read a book felt overly indulgent; almost as though such leisure was reserved for another class. I had to work constantly. I had to prove my worth for receiving government benefits.”
Stephanie Land, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive
