Picture Quotes

My grandmother told me once that when you lose somebody you think you've lost the whole world as well, but that's not the way things turn out in the end.

It shakes the shingles from the roofs and sifts through cracks in the plaster. The only green things left are the holly bushes and the old boxwood hedges in the village, and these are often painted white with snow. Chipmunks and weasels come to nest in basements and barns; owls find their way into attics. At night,the dark is blue and bluer still, as sapphire of night.
