“We're all of us, always on the edge of bereavement.”
Lisa Mannetti, The Gentling Box

“Can you imagine anything uglier than manipulating people's sincere belief in God to convince them you're genuine--the real, honest-to-Jesus ticket-when you're just about to scheme as many dollars as you can out of their pocketbooks? It's disgusting.”
Lisa Mannetti, The Box Jumper

“We want small things, tiny joys. The feeling that tomorrow is going to bring us bright colors, shiny tinsel--the delicious smell of cooking, a moment's adventure in a sideshow. We want hope. We want love. And Christ, it shouldn't be too much to ask for in this cockeyed world--and yet it is. Somehow, it is.”
Lisa Mannetti, The Gentling Box
