Maurice Sendak
“I have nothing now but praise for my life. I'm not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can't stop them. They leave me and I love them more...What I dread is the isolation. ...

Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are

Kate Atkinson
“Why is everything an 'adventure' with you?" Sylvie said irritably to Izzie."

"I would say it was more of an endurance race," Sylvie said. "Or an obstacle course.”
Kate Atkinson, Life After Life

Jane Austen
“Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love.”
Jane Austen

Kate Atkinson

Kate Atkinson, Life After Life

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