“Writing does not exist unless there is someone to read it, and each reader will take something different from a novel, from a chapter, from a line.”
Claire Fuller, Swimming Lessons

“My father was fond of saying 'If you own too many possessions sooner or later they start owning you.”
Claire Fuller, Our Endless Numbered Days

“Dates only make us aware of how numbered our days are, how much closer to death we are for each one we cross off. From now on, Punzel, we're going to live by the sun and the seasons.' He picked me up and spun me around, laughing.'Our days will be endless.”
Claire Fuller, Our Endless Numbered Days
