This Is How It Always Is
Montalbano's First Case
"You have to tell. It can't be a secret. Secrets make everyone alone. Secrets lead to panic ... When you keep it a secret, you get hysterical. You get to thinking you're the only one there is who's like you, who's both and neither and betwixt, who forges a path every day between selves, but that's not so. When you're alone keeping secrets, you get fear. When you tell, you get magic. Twice. ... You find out you're not alone. And so does everyone else. That's how everything gets better. ... You share your secret, and you change the world."
"All life [is change]. You are never finish, never done. Never become, always becoming. You know? Life is change so is always okay you are not there yet. Is like this for you and Poppy and everyone. The people who do not understand are change. The people who are afraid are change. There is no before and no after because changes is what is life. You live in change, in in between."
"I saw. I saw what horrors come from keeping it a secret. I saw what storms unleash when it's uncovered."
