Joyce Rebeta-Burditt

  • Alcoholism isn't a spectator sport. Eventually the whole family gets to play.

  • Do you know what it's like to feel wrong twenty-four hours a day? Do you know what it's like to be disapproved of, not only for what you do and say and think but for what you are?

  • Evidently Christmas was an unmitigated joy only for the people who inhabited department-store brochures and seasonal television specials. For everyone else the day seemed to be a trip across a mine field seeded with resurrected family feuds, exacerbated loneliness, emotional excess, and the inevitable disappointments that arise when expectations fall far short of reality.

  • I'm devoting my life to being a psychiatric patient. It's a vocation, like being a nun, only a lot more expensive.

  • I can sometimes resist temptation, but never mischief.

  • An agenda, no matter how bizarre, is the difference between eccentric and mad as a hatter.

  • I would rather eat nails and sleep on an off-ramp than live with my mother again.
