“God is not here to be demanded of, begged from, or criticized. He hands out burdens to those who are strong enough to carry them, and I feel profoundly uncomfortable with the idea of lining up with the other invalids and asking for mine to be alleviated.”
Ann Napolitano, A Good Hard Look

“Hope may have a positive reputation, but it has a vicious downside. If you have hope, you can be crushed.”
Ann Napolitano, A Good Hard Look

“She had been so fiercely alive. She had spoken honestly, and lived with an honesty that few could claim to match. She had made the most of every minute she was given. She bargained and rationed and managed the seconds. She burned up the days.”
Ann Napolitano, A Good Hard Look
