“I had the worst feeling, when I hung up, that I had missed the purpose of our conversation, that we both had. We had been apart for so long and no longer knew how to speak, other than as strangers. How are you feeling? we said, but what we meant was, Where are you? who are you now? Are you still in there?”
Jennifer Gilmore, The Mothers

“You think the worst is behind you, but it's never behind you. In fact, saying something is the worst does not leave room for all the bad stuff that can follow it. You say the pain is nine, but you mean ten. You leave room.”
Jennifer Gilmore, We Were Never Here

“Sometimes you stop seeing what the person is to the world. You only see what the person is to you.”
Jennifer Gilmore, We Were Never Here
