"She knew how to put one foot in front of the other even when they hurt. And she knew there was pain in the journey, but there was also great beauty. "
"It hurts until it doesn’t. You think it’s going to break you, but it won’t. You may not sleep as well at night, but you will be fine. Numb, but numb and fine are the same. "
"I want you to promise me something. If you love someone, you tell them. Even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing. Even if you’re scared that it’ll cause problems. Even if you’re scared that it will burn your life to the ground. You say it, and you say it loud. And then you go from there. "
"Memory is slippery. It bends to our understanding of the world, twists to accommodate our prejudices. It is unreliable. "
"People can be cruelest to those they love. "
