“You saved me, you know. Life had me running. Had me by the throat, and I really was falling under, losing hope. And then I met you, and you gave me a reason to keep my head above water. You taught me to swim. You taught me to live.” 

—Jasinda Wilder, Falling Under

“The absolute truth…I did not forget it.  It worked its way into my brain and then stuck its foot in the door so that other bits of wisdom might follow, while back in present time, I slipped beneath the surface of the water and swam away.”

— Ann Patchett, This Is The Story of a Happy Marriage
