“The worst is being alone and not having someone with whom I can share life, someone who sees the world from the same narrow ledge I'm standing on and who understands without always having to be explained to.”
Nancy Bond, Country of Broken Stone

“It isn't always easy to trust people you love - not because you don't love them enough, but because you don't want them to be wrong and get hurt. But getting hurt is a part of life, and so, thank God, is trust.”
Nancy Bond, A String in the Harp
