“First you must believe there is a soul."

"Do you?"

"If by a soul one means the creature who lives within each of us, a creature born loving, born joyful, but who with each wordly blow shrinks more deeply into its shell until at last, the poor desiccated thing is unrecognizable, even to its own self, yes. I do.”
Lynn Cullen, Mrs. Poe

“The principled man is merely one whose ancestors were ruthlessly unprincipled, affording him the option of acting upon fine sentiments.”
Lynn Cullen, Mrs. Poe

“Every heart, it have its own ache.”
Lynn Cullen, The Creation of Eve
