Favorite Quote 2 by Lauren Graham

“Over and over in the play, my character says, “I’m thirty-two years old,” as if that should explain everything wrong in her life. I don’t know what it’s like to be thirty-two, but I can imagine. I imagine she means she’s stuck in an in-between time, she’s at an age that isn’t a milestone, but more of a no-man’s-land, an age where she’s feeling like her hopes are fading.”

– Lauren Graham

“BUT here’s a secret: The lows don’t last any longer than the highs do. Like clouds on an overcast day, sometimes we have to face the fact that what happens to us in life isn’t controllable, and if we wait a while, don’t take it personally, and decide to enjoy ourselves anyway, the sky will eventually clear up.”

– Lauren Graham
