"I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved."
"You know everything you need to know about a person from the answer to the question: What is your favorite book?"
– Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry
