“I remind myself that not everything is a sign, that some things simply are what they appear to be and should not be analyzed, deconstructed, or forced to bear the burden of metaphor, symbol, omen, or portent.”

“Against all odds and despite all evidence to the contrary, still we trust that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel, of our personal tunnel anyway.”
Diane Schoemperlen, Our Lady of the Lost and Found: A Novel of Mary, Faith, and Friendship

“For those of us with a bookish bent, reading is a reflexive response to everything. This is how we deal with the world and anything that comes our way. We have always known that there is a book for every occasion and every obsession. When in doubt, we are always looking things up.”
Diane Schoemperlen, Our Lady of the Lost and Found: A Novel of Mary, Faith, and Friendship
