“We had everything to say to each other, but no ways to say it”
“But I still couldn't figure out what it all meant. The more I found out, the less I understood.”
“Why didn't I learn to treat everything like it was the last time. My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future.”
“I hope that one day you will have the experience of doing something you do not understand for someone you love.”
“In the end, everyone loses everyone. There was no invention to get around that, and so I felt, that night, like the turtle that everything else in the universe was on top of.”
“Mom told me, “It probably gets pretty lonely to be Grandma, don’t you think?” I told her, “It probably gets pretty lonely to be anyone”
"You can't love anything more than something you miss.”
“Even if I don't like what I am, I know what I am. My children like what they are, but they don't know what they are. So tell me which is worse.”
'Why do beautiful songs make you sad?'
'Because they aren't true.'
'Nothing is beautiful and true.”
