Happy moments

Todays quotation is from Dead Before Dying by Deon Meyer.

The feeling of discomfort grew because here Drew Wilson was still alive in timeless moments of happiness, birthdays and awards, parental love, friendship. Detective-sergeant Gerrit Snyman didn´t consider the symbolism of the photo album for a single second, nor for the same brief space of time, did it occur to him that everyone left only the happy moments for future generations and took the grief and the pain, the heartbreak and the failures to their graves.

What do mothers dream of

Today´s Quotation is from A Question of Belief by Donna Leon.

What did mothers dream of for their sons? And from their sons? A happy life? Grandchildren? Reasons to be proud of them? Brunetti knew women who wanted only that their sons stay free of drugs and out of jail; others who wanted them to marry a beautiful woman, make a fortune, and win social status; and some very few who simply wanted them to be happy. What had Signora Fontana permitted herself  to want for her son?
