Character Quotes from Crippled by Love by Dellani Oakes

character-quotes-image“What happened that day?”

“Do you really want to know?”

“I do. And not because I’m a nosy reporter. Because I see someone hurting.”

“Don’t get all sympathetic,” Ian said with a shake of his head. “I don’t need your pity.”

Cynthia stood abruptly, dropping his hand in his lap.

“I didn’t pity my brother, why would I pity you? What you need, Mister Yarrow, is a good swift kick in the ass! You’re so busy feeling sorry for yourself and bitter and angry, you don’t stop to see when someone is really concerned and wants to help. Don’t you think after twelve years, I know a thing or two about what you’re going through? Don’t you think that Lonnie went through this same thing himself? Every day, I watched him be angry at the world. Then he finally figured out that it wasn’t the world’s fault. Shit happens and good people get hurt. Sometimes they die.”

“Lonnie didn’t die.”

“No. But his pregnant girlfriend did. She was driving and crashed into a tree. She was killed instantly and my brother will never walk again. His son died that night too. You have to find forgiveness, just like Lonnie did.”
