Love Begins in Winter by Simon Van Booy
"There may be other writers of prose active today who are the equal of Simon Van Booy but I’ve yet to encounter them. And in this set of shorter stories, he accomplishes almost as much as most would achieve in a full length novel. At 100 pages, the le" Read more of this review »

Quotes by Sara Steger  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“She was the kind of practical country woman who accepted fate, leaned on her faith, and got on with the business of living.”
Sara Steger, Moving On

“There’s a time in life when you are glad for having somebody watching out for you. Nobody cares what happens to you in the city, but here in Franklin folks are interested in everything you do. You can fault people for being nosy, sweetie, but if you fall off your tractor in Franklin, you won’t lay in your field hurting for very long.”
Sara Steger, Moving On

“After so many years away, I had been afraid to return and find nothing the same, but I had been wrong. Nana was still here in the boards and bricks. For the first time since burying my children, I was not alone.”
Sara Steger, Moving On

“We take pictures because we can't accept that everything passes, we can't accept that the repetition of a moment is an impossibility. We wage a monotonous war against our own impending deaths, against time that turns children into that other, lesser species: adults. We take pictures because we know we will forget. We will forget the week, the day, the hour. We will forget when we were happiest. We take pictures out of pride, a desire to have the best of ourselve preserved. We fear that we will die and others will not know we lived.”
Michelle Richmond, The Year of Fog

“There are certain queer times and occasions in this strange mixed affair we call life when a man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke, though the wit thereof he but dimly discerns, and more than suspects that the joke is at nobody's expense but his own.”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick

“Who in the rainbow can draw the line where the violet tint ends and the orange tint begins? Distinctly we see the difference of the colors, but where exactly does the one first blendingly enter into the other? So with sanity and insanity.”
Herman Melville, Billy Budd, Sailor

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You

“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain
