E.R. Frank Quotes 172172

He apologized when I was twelve. He was crying. I don't like to remember that. I like to remember the time he spelled and defined 'metamorphosis' when my mama was clean.

Time is tricky. You have whole months, even years, when nothing changes a speck, when you don't go anywhere or do anything or think one new thought.

E.R. Frank Quotes 1595180

Sonia, every dog does not bite, nor does each bee sting. For each schoolmate who insults you, there must be fifty who do not.

Then inform them that they are forgiven, for such forgiveness may shame some toward kindness. — E.R. Frank

E.R. Frank Quotes 2038414

106When I don't have anything to read, I feel like a tortoise without a shell or a boat without an anchor. There is nothing to hide under. Nowhere to stop and rest. When I don't have a book, there is nowhere good or interesting to be, there is nobody to care about, nothing to hope for, and nothing to puzzle over. When I do have something to read, it keeps me breathing. It's the reward for all the other things. It's the thing to look forward to, the reason for doing my day."
p. 177, Dime — E.R. Frank
