Judith Viorst February 2, 1931

Quotes (15)

Craving that old sweet oneness yet dreading engulfment, wishing to be our mother's and yet be our own, we stormily swing from mood to mood, advancing and retreating—the quintessential model of two-mindedness.
Judith Viorst (20th century), U.S. author and poet. Necessary Loses, ch. 3 (1986).
The need to become a separate self is as urgent as the yearning to merge forever. And as long as we, not our mother, initiate parting, and as long as our mother remains reliably there, it seems possible to risk, and even to revel in, standing alone.
Judith Viorst (20th century), U.S. author and poet. Necessary Loses, ch. 3 (1986).
Somewhere slightly before or after the close of our second decade, we reach a momentous milestone—childhood's end. We have left a safe place and can't go home again. We have moved into a world where life isn't fair, where life is rarely what it should be.
Judith Viorst (20th century), U.S. novelist and poet. Necessary Losses, ch. 10 (1986).
