  1. “And maybe – maybe – love will arrive, and remain.”
    1 Michael Cunningham The Snow Queen
  2. “Our hopes may seem unrealized, but we were in all likelihood hoping for the wrong thing.”
    2 Michael Cunningham The Snow Queen
  3. “If you live in certain places, in a certain way, you’d better learn to praise the small felicities.”
    3 Michael Cunningham The Snow Queen
  4. “Love, it seems, arrives not only unannounced but so accidentally, so randomly, as to make you wonder why you, why anyone, believes even fleetingly in-laws of cause and effect.”
    4 Michael Cunningham The Snow Queen
  5. “God save us from people who think they’re smarter than they actually are.”
    5 Michael Cunningham The Snow Queen
  6. “You know, if you’re hopeful, if you’re even a little bit happy about something that might happen, it doesn’t affect the outcome. You could still give yourself a period of optimism, even if it all falls apart.”
    6 Michael Cunningham The Snow Queen
  7. “The lives great artists live and the books they write are two very different things.”
    7 Michael Cunningham The Snow Queen
  8. “People are more than you think they are. And they’re less, as well. The trick lies in negotiating your way between the two.”8 Michael Cunningham The Snow Queen
