Margarettown: Whoever you know in a certain place defines that place for you.

There’s a pleasure to loving someone even when you know there’s no chance in them loving you back. The pain I felt let me know I was still alive.

Sometimes things seem so unbearable in the middle of the night, don’t they? In the middle of the night, we’re all such children.

In a way, whoever you know in a certain place defines that place for you.

People are capable of great, great change during the span of one lifetime. And women even more than men.

Real Love is not just instinct, but intent……

From year to year, you may not always be the same Jane. This is perfectly normal. A Jane is many Janes in a lifetime.

In you, I found infinity. In you, I was reborn.

And isn’t love just curiosity at the beginning anyway?

It is a lie that people who love each other must know everything about each other. Love must occasionally allow for a gap.

Someday, you do not know when, you will be driving down the road and someday, you do not now when, you will make a wrong turn. At the end of the road, when you’re least expecting it, he (or indeed she) will be there.

In life the most interesting things tend to happen when you’re on your way to do something else.

An echo makes good company, Old Margaret said. Whenever I’m lonely, I always try to find one to talk to. They’re much better than mirrors. Mirrors say nasty things about you. Echoes are far more supportive. They think whatever you say is completely brilliant.

Oh, all stories are the same, aren’t they? Men and women fall in love or out of love. People are born; people die. It all ends happily or it all ends sadly, and the difference matters only to the people involved.
