“There are some words that once spoken will split the world in two.

There would be the life before you breathed them and then the altered life after they’d been said.

They take a long time to find, words like that. They make you hesitate. Choose with care. Hold on to them unspoken for as long as you can just so your world will stay intact.”

― Andrea Levy, 1956-2019, writer, book quote from Small Island
