Revere Beach Elegy A Memoir of Home and Beyond by Roland Merullo

“Some people use their own hurt as an excuse for hurting others”
Roland Merullo, The Talk-Funny Girl

“I felt I was drawing close to that age, that place in life, where you realize one day what you'd told yourself was a Zen detachment turns out to be naked fear. You'd had one serious love relationship in your life and it had ended in tragedy, and the tragedy had broken something inside you. But instead of trying to repair the broken place, or at least really stop and look at it, you skated and joked. You had friends, you were a decent citizen. You hurt no one. And your life was somehow just about half of what it could be.”
Roland Merullo, A Little Love Story

“If Christ's message could be distilled down to one line, that line would have to do with kindness and inclusiveness, not rules and divisiveness.”
Roland Merullo, Breakfast with Buddha
