A Quiet Passion
"For each ecstatic instant we must in anguish pay."
"“Women should only aspire to be younger than their waistline.”
"Taking life seriously is the shortest route to disaster."
"If we reach into the silence, we cannot be afraid. For where there is nothing, there is God."
"If you are too quick to hope, you will always be disappointed."
"When we lose friends to death, that is the most profound loss. When we lose them to marriage, the grease is subtler but just as keenly felt."
"Poetry is my solace for the eternity that surrounds us all."
