“I’ve always been too much and yet not enough.”
Deirdre Riordan Hall, Sugar

“In fact, you’re my favorite person in the world. You have confidence in there, but sometimes I think you just misplace it.”
Deirdre Riordan Hall, Sugar

“But tonight, this is what I can give you. I can offer you the vault of heaven, the firmament of the stars in the sky, and me”
Deirdre Riordan Hall, In the Desert

Topics Mentioning This Author

“The most important thing in all human relationships is conversation, but people don’t talk anymore, they don’t sit down to talk and listen. They go to the theater, the cinema, watch television, listen to the radio, read books, but they almost never talk. If we want to change the world, we have to go back to a time when warriors would gather around a fire and tell stories.”
Paulo Coelho

“When you love someone, you’re capable of more than you know.”
Faith Sullivan, Hold Me Tight

“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”
Sarah Williams

“She wondered what life would be like if there was always an arm around her shoulder and if there was a back that welcomed her hug all the time.”
Deirdre Riordan Hall, In the Desert

“Together, they at once dodged those parts of themselves and magnified them, making for enigmatic harmony and anarchy.”
Deirdre Riordan Hall, In the Desert
