Some people's lives seem to flow in a narrative; mine had many stops and starts. That's what trauma does. It interrupts the plot. You can't process it because it doesn't fit with what came before or what comes afterwards.

โ€” Jessica Stern

The most tremendous Jessica Stern quotes that may be undiscovered and unusual

I will roar argon into chlorine, xenon into fluorine, all the noble gases into reactive ones My lament will terrify even the stars.


I can still bring into my body the joy I felt at seeing the first trillium of spring, which seemed to be telling me, โ€œNever give up hope, spring will come.โ€


I have listened and I have been quiet all my life. But now I will speak.


Keep up your courage, stay true to what you believe in.


Never give up hope, spring will come.
