Nicki Salcedo liked an answer from Sally Kilpatrick:
Sally Kilpatrick
You know, I think I may start biting my thumb at people in traffic. After my latest reread of Bittersweet Creek to make sure I had all of my references ready, I decided I could take a cue from the bard and be more euphemistic with my language. In par See Sally’s answer.

“We all have scars. Just because mine are hidden doesn’t make them any less painful.”
Nicki Salcedo, All Beautiful Things

“He appreciated all beautiful things. As she stood before him poised, scrutinizing every inch of his face, liable to strike him, he thought she was the most incredible thing he had seen in his life. She didn't step away from fear, she walked up to it.”
Nicki Salcedo, All Beautiful Things

“We are all made of glass. Snow floats around us. We are delicately made, meant to be smashed.”
Nicki Salcedo, All Beautiful Things

“We all have scars. Just because mine are hidden doesn’t make them any less painful.”
Nicki Salcedo, All Beautiful Things

“Wherever she sought solitude, she was never alone. Suddenly that wasn't a bad thing. There was safety in numbers greater than one and sanity in knowing that everyone healed. If everyone has scars, there are two choices. Bleed to death slowly or stitch yourself together.”
Nicki Salcedo, All Beautiful Things

“If everyone could be brought low, then everyone could rise up.”
Nicki Salcedo, All Beautiful Things

“He preferred the bitterness of coffee. It was the one thing he got from his father that Graham wasn't ashamed of.”
Nicki Salcedo, All Beautiful Things

“He might be worried, but at least he's not upset with me. My family gets up set easily, and he got stuck helping me out. Wrong place. Wrong time. --She tried to turn her face to hide marks.

The nurse told her no. --Everything is right. Right place. Right time for both of you.

Are you from Jamaica? Ava asked, but she knew the answer. The woman had that terrible peace about her that some people were born with. There was no wrong. Everything could be made right.”
Nicki Salcedo, All Beautiful Things
