"I feel annoyed with myself, because I think I do believe [Rachel]. I think I've always known that Tom lies. It's just that in the past, his lies tended to suit me."(279)-Anna

"I can't see the faces of the passengers and I know they're just commuters heading to Euston to sit behind their desks, but I can dream: of more exotic journeys, of adventures at the end of the line and beyond."(17) -Megan

"I am not the girl I used to be. I am no longer desirable, I'm off-putting in some way. […] It's as if people can see the damage written all over me, can see it in my face, the way I hold myself, the way I move."(11)- Rachel
