Book cover for The Paris Library
‘People are awkward, they don’t always know what to do or say. Don’t hold it against them. You never know what’s in their hearts.’
Hanya Yanagihara
“...things get broken, and sometimes they get repaired, and in most cases, you realize that no matter what gets damaged, life rearranges itself to compensate for your loss, sometimes wonderfully.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

Monica Wood
“It does take time. From the day I laid eyes on her, I wished Miss Louise Grady could just once look at me and see me. For years I kept that twinkling chance like a jewel in a box. That's what unrequited means.”
Monica Wood, The One-in-a-Million Boy

Hanya Yanagihara
“Why wasn’t friendship as good as a relationship? Why wasn’t it even better? It was two people who remained together, day after day, bound not by sex or physical attraction or money or children or property, but only by the shared agreement to keep going, the mutual dedication to a union that could never be codified.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

Hanya Yanagihara
“And so I try to be kind to everything I see, and in everything I see, I see him.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

Margo Rabb
“There's a thing in poetry called the caesura a pause between words, a silence. I thought: that's what real friendship is, too. Someone you can be quiet with. Someone who understands your mistakes and forgives you.”
Margo Rabb, Kissing in America
