“To anyone who ever gave you confidence - you owe them a lot.”
John Marrs, The Wronged Sons

“What if it turns out our DNA doesn’t Match?” “Then we’ll be mindful that maybe we’ll need to put more effort into our relationship. Like John Lennon said, ‘All You Need Is Love.’” “Yes, but he also said, ‘I Am The Walrus,’ so let’s not hold too much credence to his pearls of wisdom.”
John Marrs, The One

“You're stronger than us. Once you find your anchor never let go of it. No matter what.”
John Marrs, The Good Samaritan
