  • The intimacy. The deepest level of love. The knowledge that someone understands you, is rooting for you, is sharing your life.

  • This should tell you everything you need to know about guys. They only go after what they know they can get. We girls, on the other hand, aim really high. We take a leap.

    Girl   Hands   Guy

    Adriana Trigiani (2001). “Big Cherry Holler: A Big Stone Gap Novel”, p.278, Random House
  • A handwritten letter carries a lot of risk. It's a one-sided conversation that reveals the truth of the writer. Furthermore, the writer is not there to see the reaction of the person he writes to, so there's a great unknown to the process that requires a leap of faith. The writer has to choose the right words to express his sentences, and then, once he has sealed the envelope, he has to place those thoughts in the hands of someone else, trusting that the feelings will be delivered, and that the recipient will understand the writer's intent. How childish to think that could be easy.

    "Brava, Valentine: A Novel". Book by Adriana Trigiani, March 16, 2010.
  • It's the secret to happiness, you know. Only take what you need.

    Adriana Trigiani (2012). “The Shoemaker's Wife”, p.125, Simon and Schuster
  • The Wise County Bookmobile is one of the most beautiful sights in the world to me. When I see it lumbering down the mountain road like a tank . . . I flag it down like an old friend. I've waited on this corner every Friday since I can remember. The Bookmobile is just a government truck, but to me it's a glittering royal coach delivering stories and knowledge and life itself. I even love the smell of books. People have often told me that one of their strongest childhood memories is the scent of their grandmother's house. I never knew my grandmothers, but I could always count on the Bookmobile.

    Beautiful   Wise   Friday  
    "Big Stone Gap". Book by Adriana Trigiani, January 1, 2003.
  • All the things I thought I was - simple and plain and sometime funny - are very small words. They do not begin to describe me. They do not begin to express what is inside of me. I have value, and I have worth. I cannot be replaced like old shoes or taken for granted like tap water.

    Taken   Simple   Shoes  
  • I don't use a crap camera, I don't eat junk, and I'm not going to a dance where the boys are bores

    Writing   Silence   Sound  
  • For a woman, love is the highest dream, and if a man promises to build a ladder tall enough to reach it, she believes him, hikes up her skirt, and follows him to the stars.

    Dream   Stars   Believe  
  • But what Mom never told me is that along the way, you find sisters, and they find you. Girls are cool that way.

    Sister   Girl   Mom  
    Adriana Trigiani (2010). “Viola in Reel Life”, p.121, Simon and Schuster
  • No one worries about you like your mother, and when she is gone, the world seems unsafe, things that happen unwieldy. You cannot turn to her anymore, and it changes your life forever. There is no one on earth who knew you from the day you were born; who knew why you cried, or when you'd had enough food; who knew exactly what to say when you were hurting; and who encouraged you to grow a good heart. When that layer goes, whatever is left of your childhood goes with her.

    Mother   Hurt   Heart  
    Adriana Trigiani (2003). “Big Stone Gap: A Novel”, p.176, Ballantine Books

    Talking   Roots   Taste  
  • Motherhood changes everything.

    Interview with Margo Hammond, Ellen Heltzel, August 1, 2005.
  • Anything you ever make that matters takes a long time. Some artists never see their work in front of an audience, so for them 15 years is a blink of an eye. I am nothing but grateful.

    Grateful   Eye   Artist  
  • Everything has to be clean and orderly when I sit down to write. I have candles going, and small objects that remind me of what I am working on, or bring me into the world of the character.
