Quotes Sarah Liked

Amy Hempel
“A five-hour flight works out to three days and nights on land, by rail, from sea to shining sea.

You can chalk off the hours on the back of the seat ahead. But seventy-some hours will not seem so long to you if you tell yourself first: This is where I am going to be for the rest of my natural life.”
Amy Hempel, At the Gates of the Animal Kingdom: Stories
