Quotes About Life Not Being Fair

"Mary watched the sunset from her carriage window, realizing that such beauty could never last. Life was a golden glory that faded in the wink of an eye. Life was a village fair that only lasted for a single day. As the carriage rattled along, rocking her like a babe in arms, Mary felt very old and wise.

Quotes About The Two Of Us

"Time slowed, and stilled. It was just the two of us, me murmuring in the empty, sunlit room. Will didnt say much. He didnt answer back, or add a dry comment, or scoff.
