“Perhaps the greatest magic of the human spirit is the ability to laugh, at ourselves, at each other, and at our sometimes hopeless situation. Laughter normalized our lives”
Torey Hayden

“Safety is the most basic task of all. Without sense of safety, no growth can take place. Without safety, all energy goes to defense”
Torey Hayden

“She looked up. "What I can't figure out is why the good things always end."
"Everything ends."
"Not some things. Not the bad things. They never go away."
"Yes, they do. If you let them, they go away. Not as fast as we'd like sometimes, but they end too. What doesn't end is the way we feel about each other. Even when you're all grown up and somewhere else, you can remember what a good time we had together. Even when you're in the middle of bad things and they never seem to be changing, you can remember me. And I'll remember you.”
Torey Hayden, Torpedo Run / Banners Of Silk / My Left Foot / Trojan Treasure
