The Jewel

by Amy Ewing
HarperCollins Publishers, 2014

* I love sunrises, even more than sunsets.  There’s something so exciting about the world coming to life in a thousand colors.

* Once to see it as it is.  Twice to see it in your mind.  Thrice to bend it to your will.

* I am so glad I get this tiny sl​​ice of time…  I get this one last moment with my sister.

* There is so much love around this table that it is tangible – a real, pulsing, living thing.

* A good meal could ease a troubled heart.

* Getting old is a terrible thing.

* Title does not protect you from everything.

* Men cannot be trusted.  You are lucky you will never have to discover that for yourself.

* Hope is a precious thing…  And yet, we don’t really appreciate it until it’s gone.

* I know the pain of obeying an order that every part of you screams to resist.

* Greatness is never achieved easily.

* It would be easier if I could hate you.  But the sad truth is, I will more likely love you for the rest of my life.

* The power to choose comes with a price.
