“Life has a way of taking its toll on the person you thought you were.”
A.S.A. Harrison, The Silent Wife

“Other people are not here to fulfill our needs or meet our expectations, nor will they always treat us well. Failure to accept this will generate feelings of anger and resentment. Peace of mind comes with taking people as they are and emphasizing the positive.”
A.S.A. Harrison, The Silent Wife

“She didn't know then that life has a way of backing you into a corner. You make your choices when you're far too young to understand their implications, and with each choice you make the field of possibility narrows. You choose a career and other careers are lost to you. You choose a mate and commit to loving no other.”
A.S.A. Harrison, The Silent Wife
