Quotes by Ursula Hegi

"That's the nature of being a parent, Sabine has discovered. You'll love your children far more than you ever loved your parents, and -- in the recognition that your own children cannot fathom the depth of your love -- you come to understand the tragic, unrequited love of your own parents."

"Some acts of faith, I believe, have the power to grant us something infinitely wiser than we imagine"

"What the river was showing her now was that she could flow beyond the brokenness, redeem herself, and fuse once more."

"Now the purpose of her stories had changed. She spun them to discover their meaning. In the telling, she found, you reached a point where you could not go back, where—as the stories changed—it transformed you, too."

"About endings....unless we do them well, we have to keep repeating them."
