Quotes from This Book

  • “Still and all, when I smell love, I almost always smell worry. Seems like they’re tangled together so tightly they’ll never unravel.”
  • “That’s the best kind of snooze, if you ask me. Good, warm, safe-in-someone’s arms sleep.”
  • “That’s not brave, Bob.” he finally said. “That’s knowing what I can’t change.”
