“Carefully she spread open the skirt of the dress and found the place where Ellen’s necklace lay hidden in the pocket. The little Star of David still gleamed gold.

“Papa?” she said, returning to the balcony, where her father was standing with the others, watching the rejoicing crowd, She opened her hand and showed him the necklace. “Can you fix this? I have kept it all this long time. It was Ellen’s.”

Her father took it from her and examined the broken clasp. “Yes,” he said. “I can fix it. When the Rosens come home, you can give it back to Ellen.”

“Until then,” Annemarie told him, “I will wear it myself.”
Lois Lowry, Number the Stars

Ramani Durvasula
“Many times in new relationships the restructuring of boundaries can be hard work and requires mature and insightful communication. A common mistake is to assume that boundaries will just figure themselves out; they often do not, and hurt feelings are inevitable. For example, snuggle time with a male friend may evaporate once the woman enters into a committed relationship. Boundaries are usually implicit and understood by the persons in the relationship.”
Ramani Durvasula, Should I Stay or Should I Go?: Surviving a Relationship with a Narcissist

Lidia Longorio
“Your smile is what I need at
the end of a hard day
Your hug is what I need to know I’m going to be okay
Your voice drowns out my loudest thought
When I’m in trouble you’re the one I’ve always sought
So when you were gone I became lost
Of loving you, I knew the cost
For you were only human and so was I
We were always meant to die”
Lidia Longorio, Hey Humanity

Elizabeth von Arnim

Elizabeth von Arnim, Fraulein Schmidt and Mr Anstruther

Beatriz Saiz, Quiero volver a bailar bajo la nieve

Elif Shafak
“That was the problem with all these butterfly-life-spanned girlfriends the scenarist brought with him. Driven by an impulse to become friends with everyone in the group, they asked too many personal questions and made too many personal comments, miserably failing to acknowledge that it was precisely the opposite, the lack of any serious and sincere interest in each other's privacy, which drew the group members to one another.”
Elif Shafak, The Bastard of Istanbul
