"No truth can cure the sorrow we feel from losing a loved one. No truth, no sincerity, no strength, no kindness can cure that sorrow. All we can do is see it through to the end and learn something from it, but what we learn will be no help in facing the next sorrow that comes to us without warning."
"She does not exist here, with me, but flesh that does not exist will never die, and promises unmade are never broken."
"I realize full well how hard it must be to go on living alone in a place from which someone has left you, but there is nothing so cruel in this world as the desolation of having nothing to hope for."
"Memories and thoughts age, just as people do. But certain thoughts can never age, and certain memories can never fade."
"I said nothing for a time, just ran my fingertips along the edge of the human-shaped emptiness that had been left inside me."
"So that's how we live our lives. No matter how deep and fatal the loss, no matter how important the thing that's stolen from us - that's snatched right out of our hands - even if we are left completely changed, with only the outer layer of skin from before, we continue to play out our lives this way, in silence."
"I want you always to remember me. Will you remember that I existed, and that I stood next to you here like this?"
