Quotes by Sue Monk Kidd  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Someone who thinks death is the scariest thing doesn't know a thing about life.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

“If you need something from somebody always give that person a way to hand it to you.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

“Knowing can be a curse on a person's life. I'd traded in a pack of lies for a pack of truth, and I didn't know which one was heavier. Which one took the most strength to carry around? It was a ridiculous question, though, because once you know the truth, you can't ever go back and pick up your suitcase of lies. Heavier or not, the truth is yours now.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees
