“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” ― Haruki Murakami
“Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times?” Mo had said…”As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells…and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower…both strange and familiar.” ― Cornelia Funke
I’m proud of the woman I am today because I went through one hell of a time becoming her. – Author Unknown
This is one of the reasons I love writing romance. It’s so much fun to take a person who doesn’t expect to fall in love–and who actually feels like it’s the worst time in their lives for it–and then introduce them to someone they simply cannot resist.
