“Women can be a rough trip, but there’s no better ride on earth.”
Steven Manchester, The Thursday Night Club

“Spending time with her father was like showering with a cheese grate - it got more painful each time.”
Steven Manchester, Gooseberry Island

“Dr. Weiss stood. "There are two things you need to know right off the bat: The first is that it takes great courage to admit fear or that you need hep. Just by being here, you've proven that you have the courage. And the second id that we never get what we wish for - ever." He shrugged. "We get what we work for." He looked into David's eyes. "Are you prepared to put in the work, David McClain?”
Steven Manchester, Gooseberry Island
