“And I decided that there might be things I would never understand, no matter how hard I tried. Though try I would.

And that there would be people who would never hear my one small voice, no matter what I had to say.

But then a better thought occurred, and this was the one I carried away with me that day: If my life was to be just a single note in an endless symphony, how could I not sound it out for as long and as loudly as I could? (p228)”
Lauren Wolk, Wolf Hollow

“The year I turned twelve, I learned that what I said and what I did mattered. So much, sometimes, that I wasn't sure I wanted such a burden. But I took it anyway, and I carried it as best I could.”
Lauren Wolk, Wolf Hollow

“But the wind always swept my words away like cloud shadows, as if it mattered more that I said them, than who heard them.”
Lauren Wolk, Wolf Hollow
