Quotes Sharon Liked

Alice Hoffman
“She slept beneath a tree that night, sitting upright. She imagined she would have been scared for her life out in the open, for she was often terrified in her own room at home, even after double-locking the windows and covering the glass with quilts. Instead, she felt an odd calm spirit here in the wilderness. Was this the way people felt at the instant they leapt into rivers and streams? Was it like this when you fell in love, stood on the train tracks, went to a country where no one spoke your language? That was the country she was in most of the time, a place where people heard what she said but not what she meant. She wanted to be known, but no one knew her.”
Alice Hoffman, The Red Garden

Alice Hoffman
“She liked to disappear, even when she was in the same room as other people. It was a talent, as it was a curse.”
Alice Hoffman, The Red Garden
