Character’s Quotes

• Selling love will make you rich. That’s what my mother taught me. Just don’t put your heart in it.
• What keeps me going is that through all the lies, I know the truth. We had it. Him and me for a moment. Love and truth together. Finally. And forever. Hey, how many people can say that?
