Bridges of Madison County Quotes

One of my favorite books is Bridges of Madison County by Robert James Waller. The quotes from this book exude an abundance of rich wisdom that calls and beckons to me like little whispers of truth. I have found a love of covered bridges after reading this book. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:

“The human heart has a way of making itself large again even after it’s been broken into a million pieces.”

“Analysis destroys wholes. Some things, magic things, are meant to stay whole. If you look at their pieces, they go away.”

“So here I am walking around with another person inside of me. Though I think I put it better the day we parted when I said there is a third person we have created from the two of us. And I am stalked now by that other entity.”  

“I am the highway and a peregrine and all the sails that ever went to sea.”  

“In a universe of ambiguity, this kind of certainty comes only once, and never again, no matter how many lifetimes you live.”
