“Peccato, non ricorderà la sua nascita, il suo primo respiro, il modo in cui l'avrei tenuta tra le braccia. I nostri sorrisi attorno a lei.
Non ricordiamo mai il periodo della vita in cui siamo più amati in assoluto. Forse, se così fosse, non avremmo bisogno di cercare l'amore per il resto della nostra vita.”
Chiara Cecilia Santamaria, Quello che le mamme non dicono

“Dentro di me ospitavo delle continue guerre civili psicologiche. Mi prendo cura della mia bambina e voglio farlo, davvero. Ma allora com’è che al tempo stesso vorrei scappare, far finta che nulla di questo sia successo, ricominciare la mia vita com’era prima? “Sono tante cose. Tra queste, ora sono anche madre”, avrei voluto esprimere, ma era una concezione della maternità che non riuscivo a far capire a molte persone, a esempio ai miei genitori. No: impossibile. Se lasciavi spazio al resto di te, non eri un bravo genitore. “Ora sei mamma” continuavano a dirmi a ogni mio cenno di insofferenza.”
Chiara Cecilia Santamaria, Quello che le mamme non dicono

“Forse preoccuparmi della parte pratica e fisica era semplicemente un modo per non affrontare l’impatto psicologico di quel giorno. Il giorno in cui avrei iniziato davvero a essere madre e dalla mia pancia sarebbe uscita una persona , la mia bambina. Improvvisamente era incredibile realizzare che siamo tutti nati così, che ogni individuo è stato un tempo calci sotto la pelle di qualcuno, movimenti da sentire col palmo della mano.”
Chiara Cecilia Santamaria, Quello che le mamme non dicono

“…how it would be nice if, for every sea waiting for us, there would be a river, for us.
And someone -a father, a lover, someone- able to take us by the hand and find that river -imagine it, invent it- and put us on its stream, with the lightness of one only word, goodbye. This, really, would be wonderful. It would be sweet, life, every life. And things wouldn’t hurt, but they would get near taken by stream, one could first shave and then touch them and only finally be touched. Be wounded, also. Die because of them. Doesn’t matter. But everything would be, finally, human. It would be enough someone’s fancy -a father, a lover, someone- could invent a way, here in the middle of the silence, in this land which don’t wanna talk. Clement way, and beautiful.
A way from here to the sea.”
Alessandro Baricco, Ocean Sea

“Honor sometimes means doing something very unwise. Behaving like an idiot is better than dishonor. To this day I blush for having chosen sensible restraint over common decency.”
Amélie Nothomb, Stupeur et tremblements

“These days, loneliness is the new cancer–-a shameful, embarrassing thing, brought upon yourself in some obscure way. A fearful, incurable thing, so horrifying that you dare not mention it; other people don’t want to hear the word spoken aloud for fear that they might too be afflicted, or that it might tempt fate into visiting a similar horror upon them.”
Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

“There are scars on my heart, just as thick, as disfiguring as those on my face. I know they’re there. I hope some undamaged tissue remains, a patch through which love can come in and flow out. I hope.”
Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine
