“You bite the bullet and get on with it. One can't expect to be happy all the time ... You expect to be happy, as if it's a right. It's not a right. It's a bonus. The cherry on the cake.”
Santa Montefiore, The French Gardener

“Loving isn't about selecting only the good parts. It's about taking the whole and loving the lot.”
Santa Montefiore, Last Voyage of the Valentina

“I agree. Each book is like a little world. You can carry it in your hand, and, yet, the space it creates in your mind is infinite.”
Santa Montefiore
