"Nothing can wear you out like caring about people."
"Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway."
"You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place."
"And then I felt sad because I realized that once people are broken in certain ways, they can’t ever be fixed, and this is something that nobody tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older and you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it’s already happened."
