„Dobrá matka je nenahraditelná.“

„That's when you know for sure somebody loves you. They figure out what you need and they give it to you -- without you asking.“ Very Valentine


„I even love the smell of books.“

„Mom, how do you know if the guy isguy?”

You mean if he’ll be a good husband?” She pauses, then says “The ticket is for the man to love the woman more than she loves him.”

Shouldn’t it be equal?”

Mom cackles. “It can never be equal.”

But what if the woman loves the man more?”

A life of hell awaits her. As women, the deck is stacked against us becauseis our enemy. We age, while men. And trust me, there are plenty of women out there looking for a man, and they don’t mind staking a claim on somebody else’s husband, no matter how old, creaky, and deaf they are.“
Very Valentine

„I like it when my mother smiles. And I especially like it when I make her smile.“ Viola in Reel Life

„... I've made it my business to observe fathers and daughters. And I've seen some incredible, beautiful things. Like the little girl who's not very cute - her teeth are funny, and her hair doesn't grow right, and she's got on thick glasses - but her father holds her hand and walks with her like she's a tiny angel that no one can touch. He gives her the best gift a woman can get in this world: protection. And the little girl learns to trust the man in her life. And all the things that the world expects from women - to be beautiful, to soothe the troubled spirit, heal the sick, care for the dying, send the greeting card, bake the cake - allof those things become the way we pay the father back for protecting us...“ Big Stone Gap

„But what Mom never told me is that along the way, you find sisters, and they find you. Girls are cool that way.“ Viola in Reel Life

„We hang out, we help one another, we tell one another our worst fears and biggest secrets, and then just like real sisters, we listen and don't judge.“ Viola in Reel Life


„When a girl is beautiful, she gets to pick - she never has to wait for someone to choose her.“

„The terrible things that happen to us in life never make any sense when we're in the middle of them, floundering, no end in sight. There is no rope to hang on to, it seems. Mothers can soothe children during those times, through their reassurance. No one worries about you like your mother, and when she is gone, the world seems unsafe, things that happen unwieldy. You cannot turn to her anymore, and it changes your life forever. There is no one on earth who knew you from the day you were born; who knew why you cried, or when you'd had enough food; who knew exactly what to say when you were hurting; and who encouraged you to grow a good heart. When that layer goes, whatever is left of your childgood goes with her. Memories are very different and cannot soothe you the same way her touch did.“ Big Stone Gap

„A good mother is irreplaceable.“

„I don't settle in any other area of my life when it comes to excellence, so why should I lower my standards when it comes to boys?“ Viola in Reel Life


„When you lose someone, they take a bigger place in your heart, not a smaller one. Every day it grows, because you don't stop loving them. You wish you could talk to them. You need their advice. But life doesn't always give us what we need, and it's difficult.“ The Shoemaker's Wife

„Isn't this the truth of any good mother? That in all of our lives. We worry only about those we brought into this world, regardless of whether they loved us back or treated us fairly or understood our shortcomings.“ Big Cherry Holler

„Whever I came into the room, she'd light up, so happy to see me. No one ever in the course of my entire life was ever as happy to see me as she was. Looking back, now, I realize that you only ever need one person who lights up that way when you enter a room. One person is all it takes to give a kid confidence.“ Don't Sing at the Table: Life Lessons from My Grandmothers

„Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved“ Big Stone Gap
