“A book is like a woman. She should leave your bed with her hair tangled and her clothes on backward. A book without creases is a book that has never known passion.”
Terri-Lynne DeFino, The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers

“There are many yesterdays. With any luck, many tomorrows. But there's only one today. Don't fuck it up.”
Terri-Lynne DeFino, The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers

“Never and forever are not opposites. They are two parts to a whole. Like love and pain. Joy and sorrow. Life and death. Like monster and princess. But between love and pain there is comfort. Between joy and sorrow there is contentment. Between life and death there is experience. Between monster and princess, there is courage. And between never and forever, there is everything.”
