Sunday Quote


Sunday, November 1, 1009

How much easier life would be without love, she thought. The Holy Joes are forever preaching that it's love that makes the world go round.  It isn't.  It's love that stops the world in its tracks.  Be faithful in love, they tell us, and all will be well.  Travel with love in your heart, and you'll never walk alone.


They're right.  You'll have a shadowy companion, invisible only at the moments of greatest ecstasy, but otherwise constantly present.  His names are fear and loss and pain.


One way or another, love always betrays.

Ellie Pascoe remembering how she felt
when she heard that her policeman husband
had been involved in a potentially life-threatening explosion.

What a sad perspective.

She loves her husband greatly, but she really struggles with being a policeman's wife.
