Harriet Doerr

  • ... memories are like corks left out of bottles. They swell. They no longer fit.

  • I have everything I need. A square of sky, a piece of stone, a page, a pen, and memory raining down on me in sleeves.

    • Harriet Doerr,
    • "A Sleeve of Rain," The Tiger in the Grass: Stories and Other Inventions ()
  • One of the best things about aging is being able to watch imagination overtake memory.
