4. “Nothing worse than grey light coming in your window on a Sunday morning. Personally, I don’t like the color grey. It reminds me of the absence of color. I know, I know, people say grey is a color but it isn’t. It’s grey. Grey like smoke, like clouds, like ash. Grey like dirt and shale. Grey is Mr. Wiley’s hair and a cat bit me once was grey. Grey is a deadly color. Grey gets between me and the sun and threatens rain. It’s a downer, grey is. Don’t ever wear grey, people are likely to avoid you.”
21. “Good decorating is a story, Pleasant. It’s a story of taste. It’s a story of personality, of character. Look at any good decorated room and I defy you to tell me it doesn’t have a story to tell. When I see a well painted room I want to meet the storyteller behind the color chosen. I truly do. Show me a man with taste and I’ll show you a man with characte.”
23. “I live in a world of lies, I might as well learn early that lies come with the territory. You befriend people, you grow up and marry, you work and you lie to everyone, your boss, your spouse and your best friend. You tell big lies, little lies, the world is a bunch of lies. You teach your children to lie because you believe that the only protection they will ever have from any kind of harm will be in the lies they tell.”
24. “He would ask her, of course, and they would honeymoon at the Canary Inn, but that particular weekend wouldn’t be about forever, not just yet. It would be about the discovery Bessie made, about love, how it boomerangs toward you on quiet feet and tugs softly, never raging or insisting on anything other than recognition, and an unencumbered path of return.”
46. “Angus had been hurt deeply by what John Peter had done, that he might have lost a friend in such a horrible way. I could see that. But even aside from the stupid thing John Peter had done, Angus was hurting for me, feeling my pain, taking it with him as he rode off. He might not have understood all of what I was feeling but he had embraced it. He didn’t get it after Millie died, but now he knew what loss could do to a person. Empathy just might save the world one day.”
