Literature Snippet…

Standard

Sorry is a question that begs forgiveness,

because the metronome of a good heart won’t settle

until things are set right and true.

Sorry doesn’t take things back,

but it pushes things forward.

It bridges the gap.

Sorry is a sacrament.

It’s an offering. A gift.”

—Craig Silvey, Jasper Jones

“This was no rinky-dink moon.

This was a moon you had to curtsy to.

A big, heavy, mysterious, beautiful, bossy moon.

The kind you want to serve things to on a silver platter.”

Rebecca Wells, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

“I have dreamt in my life,

dreams that have stayed with me ever after,

and changed my ideas;

they have gone through and through me,

like wine through water,

and altered the color of my mind.”
