Linda Richman

  • When you've suffered some horrible loss, your loved ones will tell you to be brave and strong. If it were you they were thinking about, they'd tell you to scream and cry and fall apart and claw at the carpet and faint dead away. That's normal.

    • Linda Richman,
    • "The Pity Party," Ladies' Home Journal ()
  • My mother's soul is alive and well and taking up space inside my head. She's always been there, and she'll always be there. She's pure essence now, a life force — a demented, dark, jealous, unhappy life force.

  • ... I went so far in trying not to be my own crazy mother that I ended up becoming a different crazy mother.

  • Here's all I know about pain: Nobody wants any, and everybody gets some. That's all anybody knows about pain right there in one little sentence.

  • ... in the annals of tearjerkers about losing a child, there is no movie to match Terms of Endearment. People who have never lost a child weep uncontrollably. People who have never had a child weep uncontrollably. It's like the nuclear weapon of dead children cinema.

Linda Richman, U.S. writer

(1942)
