Everything I Never Told You- Inspirational Quotes 

1. “The things that go unsaid are often the things that eat at you–whether because you didn’t get to have your say, or because the other person never got to hear you and really wanted to.” ★★

#eat (away) at someone: to trouble someone constantly. e.g. The nasty situation at work ate at me day and night.

2“People decide what you’re like before they even get to know you”
― Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You
3.“You loved so hard and hoped so much and then you ended up with nothing. Children who no longer needed you. A husband who no longer wanted you. Nothing left but you, alone, and empty space.” ★★★★

― Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You
7.“How had it begun? Like everything: with mothers and fathers. Because of Lydia’s mother and father, because of her mother’s and father’s mothers and fathers.”
8.“You could stop taking their phone calls, tear up their letters, pretend they’d never existed. Start over as a new person with a new life. Just a problem of geography, he thought, with the confidence of someone who had never yet tried to free himself of family.”
9.“He can guess, but he won’t ever know, not really. What it was like, what she was thinking, everything she’d never told him. Whether she thought he’d failed her, or whether she wanted him to let her go. This, more than anything, makes him feel that she is gone.” ★★★★
10“Tears blur Marilyn’s sight. It had not been science that Lydia had loved”

建立一個「一輩子所需的資料庫和知識庫」是網站最初的架構,也希望兼具娛樂與療癒功能的一個平台。目前網站累積兩千餘篇文章,階段性任務完成了。請多多指教。2018年五月中旬,重心從出版轉換到自媒體,算是很順利的過程。Amazon算是2019的目標......
