“I am tired of trying to hold things together that cannot be held.
Trying to control what cannot be controlled.
I am tired of denying myself what I want for fear of breaking things I cannot fix.
They will break no matter what we do.”

“And oh she had been broken.
She hid it well, but Ross knew from personal experience
that once you had put the pieces together, even though you might look intact,

“Something has got to hold it together.
I'm saying my prayers to Elmer, the Greek god of glue.”
-- Tom Robbins
