Susan Orlean
“There are so many things in a library, so many books and so much stuff, that I sometimes wondered if any one single person could possibly know what all of it is. I preferred thinking that no one does—I liked the idea that the library is more expansive and grand than one single mind, and that it requires many people together to form a complete index of its bounty.”
Susan Orlean, The Library Book

Kelly Harms
“I get this now. I get now that you can love what you have, love your kids and your life and your friends, and still want more. I get that it’s ok to go out and get more—more love, more friendship, more fulfillment—and still be a wonderful mom.”
Kelly Harms, The Overdue Life of Amy Byler

Kimberly Stuart
“I can’t believe how easy this is! This walking without a stroller, without a diaper bag, without a bag of snacks, without extra changes of clothes for four people.”
Kimberly Stuart, Sugar

Kimberly Stuart
“But you are single and childless. And frivolous with time.”
Kimberly Stuart, Sugar

Nancy Thayer
“having children seems to demand a completely different level of courage,”
Nancy Thayer, An Island Christmas
