Vera Jane Cook Quote: “Morning sounds came in through my window like the world made sense.”
Vera Jane Cook Quote: “Nobody could understand the past except the people from it.”
Vera Jane Cook Quote: “You wouldn’t know sense if it jumped up and bit you in the ass, Angus. You can’t recognize it ’cause it’s a foreign language to you. Sense is the coin in your pocket, not what should be there inside your head.”
Vera Jane Cook Quote: “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.”

Vera Jane Cook Quote: “Daddy came and got me after dinner. Mama must have told him I knew that dead girl ’cause he was eyeing me all through Mama’s pot roast like maybe I was going to get suicidal and hang myself from the ceiling light in my bedroom after the two helpings of dessert I took.”

Show me a man with taste and I’ll show you a man with characte.”
Vera Jane Cook Quote: “He’s going to be famous. He’s just so out there.”
Vera Jane Cook Quote: “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.”
Vera Jane Cook Quote: “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.”

Vera Jane Cook Quote: “I wonder why the dead can’t talk, look at all the crimes we’d solve if the damn dead would just Ouija board us our answers, or tell all those weird psychic people who killed ’em.”
Vera Jane Cook Quote: “I am well practiced in avoidance and indifference though the hollowness in my soul resents her absence; I wear the mask I must.”
Vera Jane Cook Quote: “When friends stopped coming by, the days were upset by it, the redundancy of routine, once altered, needed to find new distractions, like puzzle pieces that need connection in order to form a whole.”

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.”
