Wednesday Words: Coming Home by Mariah Stewart

coming home“I started to put him behind me the day I put him in prison. Yes, I still have scars, inside and out, but they remind me to never let anyone else take charge of my life ever again. And yes, I have issues, but I don’t let them define me. I’ve made a life for myself, and I’m very happy here. I could make having been abused the most important thing in my life, but I’ve chose to put it aside and focus on what I’ve done to take control of my life.”

Wednesday Words: Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett

“Finally one said, “It’s astonishing. Frankly astonishing. The man has actually got charisn’tma.”

“Your meaning?”

“I mean he’s so dreadful he fascinates people. Like those stories he was telling…did you notice how people kept encouraging him because they couldn’t actually believe anyone would tell jokes like that in mixed company?”

“My point is that, in some strange way, he attracts people.”

“Like a public hanging.”
