“I always thought strength came from within you, that it started there and ended there. It was of your own making.
I was wrong.
Strength is a gift placed inside you, built up by the people who love you. Fortified by the people who hate or threaten you. These are the things I will teach my son.”
Lauren Nicolle Taylor, The Wall

“I felt an odd sense of protectiveness. It flaked off my skin, revealing a red-hot anger at the idea that someone would hurt him.”
Lauren Nicolle Taylor, The Woodlands

“She was sweating and pale but beautiful in the firelight. Showing a woman’s strength in a delicate vessel, holding strong like a warrior. I have never admired someone more.”
Lauren Nicolle Taylor

“Now that I had experienced real freedom, I’m not sure I would ever get used to walls again. Walls loomed, leaned in, and whispered nasty things in your ears. They imposed and imprisoned. I hated them.”
Lauren Nicolle Taylor, The Wall

“I am a survivor. I live beyond the wall. I give shelter to those that need it. I am not chosen but I choose to live.”
Lauren Nicolle Taylor, The Wall

“We were like trees with nowhere to sink our roots, Joseph and I. Instead of finding the ground we wound them around each other.”
