Words

“… silence is not a natural environment for stories. They need words. Without them they grow pale, sicken and die. And then they haunt you.”

Stories

“Everybody has a story. It’s like families. You might not know who they are, might have lost them, but they exist all the same. You might drift apart or you might turn your back on them, but you can’t say you haven’t got them.”
