Broken Threads Quotes

Perhaps he could still weave together the broken threads of his life. And yet, I wanted him here now. I needed him here. In the darkness, if I sat very still, I could almost feel his presence by me, quite near, but not too near. Didnt I promise to keep you safe, he would say softly. I have never broken a promise. Dont look so worried, Jenny. And yet, he would be careful. Careful not to move too close. Careful not to frighten me. Waiting still. I am your shelter. Dont be afraid.
— Juliet Marillier —

When Caroline Meeber boarded the afternoon train for Chicago, her total outfit consisted of a small trunk, a cheap imitation alligator-skin satchel, a small lunch in a paper box, and a yellow leather snap purse, containing her ticket, a scrap of paper with her sister's address in Van Buren Street, and four dollars in money. It was in August, 1889. She was eighteen years of age, bright, timid, and full of the illusions of ignorance and youth. Whatever touch of regret at parting characterised her thoughts, it was certainly not for advantages now being given up. A gush of tears at her mother's farewell kiss, a touch in her throat when the cars clacked by the flour mill where her father worked by the day, a pathetic sigh as the familiar green environs of the village passed in review, and the threads which bound her so lightly to girlhood and home were irretrievably broken.

— Theodore Dreiser

My destiny has been that I remember and must weave together, must plait into one cable the many threads, the thin, the thick, the broken, the enduring of our long history, of our tumultuous and varied day. There is always more to be understood; a discord to be listened for; a falsity to be reprimanded.

— Virginia Woolf

Scraps of love
torn and tattered
faded, scattered
threads of hope
frayed and tangled
broken, mangled
backing, buttons
yarn and batting
quilted tenderly
wrapped up in
this warm repair
my patchwork family

— Wendelin Van Draanen

History is not ended. It will sooner or later take up the threads apparently broken off forever and knit them together in a new pattern.

— Rudolf Hess
