Marisa Kanter Quotes
“I don’t know what to say.
That’s the problem with words. In my head, words are magic. My thoughts are eloquent and fierce. On the page, words are music. In the clicks of my keyboard, in the scratches of pencil meeting paper. In the beauty of the eraser, of the backspace key. On the page, the words in my head sing and dance with the precision of diction and the intricacies of rhythm.
Out loud? Words are the worst.”
“With the toss of one last cardigan, I reveal … nothing. The suitcase is empty.
I blink. My charger isn’t here. There is literally nowhere else it could be.
I know it’s not in my purse.
I check my purse for a third time anyway.
It’s not even like I can borrow one. Deciding to be an Android in an iPhone family? Literally the worst decision ever right now.”
