“Some words are buried, others are even burned, but over the years they reemerge, ringing out like temple bells, rising above the din.”
Stephanie Scott, What's Left of Me Is Yours
tags: words

“That afternoon, alone on the floor of my grandfather's study, looking at those words, I realized that of all the lies we are told, the very best ones are close to the truth.”
Stephanie Scott, What's Left of Me Is Yours
tags: lies, truth

“That evening in Meguro, standing outside the white metal gate of the house I still shared with my grandfather, I realized I had not seen my home clearly in quite some time. The image I had created in my mind had been generated years before, while in front of me reality had shifted. We see what we expect to see; I am proof of that.”
Stephanie Scott, What's Left of Me Is Yours

“Fall down eight times, stand up nine. For me, this saying is less about the dead paving the way for future generations than it is for the women of Jeju. We suffer and suffer and suffer, but we also keep getting up. We keep living. You would not be here if you weren't brave. Now you need to be braver still.”
Lisa See, The Island of Sea Women

“How do we fall in love? ... How different it is with friendship. No one picks a friend for us. We come together by choice. We are not tied together through ceremony or the responsibility to create a son. We tie ourselves together through moment. The spark when we first meet. Laughter and tears shared. Secrets packed away to be treasured, hoarded, and protected. The wonder that someone can be so different from you and yet still understand your heart in a way no one else ever will.”
Lisa See, The Island of Sea Women

“Parents exist in children,” Grandmother said to bolster my confidence. “Your mother will always exist in you. She will give you strength wherever you go.”
Lisa See, The Island of Sea Women

“I’ve had to think about the dark shadow side of friendship. This is the person who knows and loves you best, which means she knows all the ways to hurt and betray you.”
Lisa See, The Island of Sea Women

“To understand everything is to forgive.”
Lisa See, The Island of Sea Women
