“ignore all the aggravation that life throws your way, because none of it means anything in the end.”
Susan Schoenberger, A Watershed Year

“There were times when Lucy felt almost transparent, insubstantial, as though her body would offer no resistance if the wind chose to lift her into the sky. At such times, she wished she had a small brick house to call her own, something earthbound and solid that could keep her from getting swept away like the seeds of a dandelion.”
Susan Schoenberger, A Watershed Year

“The hollow places in her soul felt less hollow because she had been useful to a remarkable spirit whose every breath—as forced as it was—mattered.”
Susan Schoenberger, The Virtues of Oxygen
