“Will you promise me something else, too?” Violet nodded. “Don’t make the same mistake I did and wait for the perfect time to do the things you want to do in life. For so long, I sat on my hands because I was afraid of what people would think of me—my husband, his colleagues, our friends. I was afraid to put my heart into the things I really cared about because I didn’t want to be controversial, or for people to disagree with me. Don’t do that.”
Susan Gloss, Vintage

“Happy endings aren't just for fairy tales and massage parlors.”
Susan Gloss, Vintage

“It had never occurred to Amithi that anything more than fine was an option.”
Susan Gloss, Vintage

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
Anais Nin

“He recognized his own fear in them, and now that he knows what it looks like he sees it everywhere — in the man who pumps gas across the street, in the teenage girls who stumble down the sidewalk, in the transvestite prostitute who steps forward and back, indecisive, at the intersection while Andres prays for the light to turn green. It is a fear that he can’t get away from, and seeing it in others doesn’t make him feel any safer.”
Natalia Sylvester, Chasing the Sun

“there was a time when this home was her domain. Sometimes she felt proud of it, sometimes she felt tied to it, but whether it was a burden or a blessing, it was hers to keep. She’d known better than anyone what this house needed; lately it’d become one of the few aspects of her life she could control. there is no corner, no ridge along the steps or crack along the wall, that she doesn’t know like her own body. the house may never have been the sanctuary she’d always dreamed of, but at least it carried no surprises. It was comfortable.”
Natalia Sylvester, Chasing the Sun

“the past can be nothing if she’ll let it be, if she simply lets it slip from her fingers. But then what else would she lose with it? Life is a fluid mix of all the things she’s been through, and she’s not ready to throw out the good with the bad.”
natalia sylvester, Chasing the Sun

“The problem with normal was that normal had been shot through. Normal wasn’t possible. Normal hadn’t even been that great.”
