“Love is willing to become to villain so that the one who you love can stay a hero.”
Josephine Angelini, Firewalker

Josephine Angelini, Firewalker
“Do you know what it means to be a survivor? It means that not only do you have to live through things, you have to live with them as well. The second part is much harder and sometimes it takes the rest of your life to learn how to do it. But at least you have the rest of your life…”
Josephine Angelini, Firewalker
“This morning she told a joke to make me feel better. She's tough and funny and caring. Beautiful. And that ass. Don't look at her ass, you idiot. It's the same ass you've seen a million times, so just forget about it because the last thing you need is to start remembering what it feels like. She really isn't Lillian, is she?

It means that not only do you have to live through things, you have to live with them as well. The second part is much harder and sometimes it takes the rest of your life to learn how to do it. But at least you have the rest of your life, Lily. And that's what's important to me."
"Oh, I'm alive," she said ruefully, "Even if I am damaged."
"You'll heal," Rowan replied confidently.”
Josephine Angelini, Firewalker

Josephine Angelini, Firewalker

Josephine Angelini, Firewalker
“I'm a witch. And witches burn.”
Josephine Angelini, Firewalker
“Trust me. The only way to end shame is to bring it out of the dark and into the light.”
Josephine Angelini, Firewalker
“...as Lily had already learned, pain builds a barrier between the hurt and the whole. It leaves the sufferer isolated, with nothing but an ocean of time to cross.”
Josephine Angelini, Firewalker
