“Love is like breathing. You take it in and let it out.”
Wally Lamb, She's Come Undone
tags: love

“Accept what people offer. Drink their milkshakes. Take their love.”
Wally Lamb, She's Come Undone

“I am not a smart man, particularly, but one day, at long last, I stumbled from the dark woods of my own, and my family's, and my country's past, holding in my hands these truths: that love grows from the rich loam of forgiveness; that mongrels make good dogs; that the evidence of God exists in the roundness of things. This much, at least, I've figured out. I know this much is true.”
Wally Lamb, I Know This Much Is True
