Buckley allungò la mano e coprì la candelina con la mano. Poi guardò mio padre per vedere se era la risposta giusta. Mio padre annuì. Papà si mise a piangere.

„These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence: the connections-sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent-that happened after I was gone.

The price of what I came to see as this miraculous body had been my life.“ The Lovely Bones

The penguin was alone in there, I thought, and I worried for him. When I told my father this, he said, "Don't worry, Susie; he has a nice life. He's trapped in a perfect world.“ The Lovely Bones

„Our only kiss was like an accident- a beautiful gasoline rainbow.“ The Lovely Bones
