This week I’m sharing quotes from the book Postmortem by Patricia Cornwell.
“The dead have never bothered me. It’s the living that I fear.”
“Isolation is the cruelest of punishments, and it had never occurred to me that I was something less than human because I wasn’t a man.”
“I disagreed. Some people feel things more deeply than others, and some people feel things the rest of us don’t. This is what causes isolation, the sense of being apart.”
“Charisma is something you have or you don’t have. You can’t manufacture it. You can’t. She didn’t try. It just was. – Matt Pettersen”
“I was a small insect faced with a formidable male network web in which I might be ensnared but never a part.”
“People often say they don’t dream, when it’s more accurate to say that they don’t remember their dreams. It gets under our skin, Kay. All of it does. We just manage to cage in most of the emotions so they don’t devour us.”
Have you read this book? Do you have any favourite quotes from it? Would love to read them. Feel free to share them in the comments below.
