When I was 22, I knew I’d be married by 26. When I turned 27, I thought, maybe it’s a good thing that I hadn’t found myself someone yet. I eagerly awaited my 30s. It would be different, I hoped. And then I hit 32, and released my debut novel. No marriage. No husband. No in-laws. No children. A book, instead. Not exactly as I had planned, but still very exciting.


I was happy. Except that, I could he

Quotes by Jane Borges  (?)

“Time heals the broken. Sometimes, the healing is slow. Sometimes, it is slower. You cannot predict how long it will take before one forgets what it all felt like—heartbreak, the pain, the anguish, and that emptiness. Years could roll by, and you’d have done ten million different things to keep yourself from thinking, and yet, the mind would remember that moment when your life fell apart and crushed you whole.”
Jane Borges, Bombay Balchao

“try telling a lover that love is not good for him. If you get a smile in return for your unsolicited advice, be assured that even though you were heard by the tiniest germ that swam the air at that moment, the pair of ears that the advice was meant for had cut out the disturbing sound frequencies before you had even emitted them.”
Jane Borges, Bombay Balchao
