Quotes from Open House by Elizabeth Berg

“You know before you know of course.”

“That was before…when did after start?”

“I remove my wedding rings and put them in the jewelry box. So many others have done this. I am not the only one. I am not the only one. But here, I am the only one.”

“Oh, what I want to do is hand my life over to someone else. That’s all. And they could re-arrange everything into something that would make sense.”

“Ain’t life a playground?”

“Somewhere a couple lies in bed together, holding hands and they will stay together until one of them dies. They will not hate each other, they will give thanks for each others presence. Somewhere this is true. This is my prayer.”

“Sad to say, I think happiness is a rare thing. I think most young people today are so focused on tomorrow they forget about today. And I think they’re so afraid of happiness as they are of pain! Scared to care. Scared to take a chance. Scared to say they’re just as sentimental and full of human need as people always have been and always will be.”
