“Just walk fearlessly into the house of mourning, for grief is just love squaring up to its oldest enemy. And after all these mortal human years, love is up to the challenge.”
Catherine Burns, The Moth Presents All These Wonders: True Stories About Facing the Unknown

“This is what I know. In the deepest, blackest night of despair, if you can get just one pinhole of light…all of grace rushes in.”
Catherine Burns, The Moth Presents All These Wonders: True Stories About Facing the Unknown

“I was perhaps as intensely naïve to think I could get a job working with the Yankees. But the lesson to me is that with a great deal of persistence and a little bit of common sense, even if the thing you’re chasing may not exist, you can sometimes will it into being.”
Catherine Burns, The Moth
