rachael's quotes

I just finished reading The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. In it, one of the mothers tells one of the daughters her mother, "is in your bones." I like that. My mother is in my bones and my kids have me in their bones. We can't get away from each other totally.

Case in point: Rachael is on goodreads.com and I was reading her quotes yesterday. I was amazed at how she chose quotes that I could have chosen. I am so in that child's bones.

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. " — Buddha

"I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick. Not wounded. Dead. " — Woody Allen
