“In some ways I liked the struggle better, I think. It clarified what was important.”
Robin Oliveira, My Name Is Mary Sutter

“And even if something had once been committed to paper, did it mean that it was still true? Always true? Unlike the relative permanence of paint, words were temporal. You uttered them and they evanesced, but if you wrote them, they remained, though whether the written word was any more truthful than the spoken was a mystery to her. Only paint was honest.”

“For all the things we say to our children for their own good, very little good ever comes of it.”
Robin Oliveira, My Name is Mary Sutter
