Alice Munro quotes

“There is a limit to the amount of misery and disarray you will put up with, for love, just as there is a limit to the amount of mess you can stand around a house. You can't know the limit beforehand, but you will know when you've reached it. I believe this.” 


“Never underestimate the meanness in people's souls... Even when they're being kind... especially when they're being kind.” 



"Few people, very few, have a treasure, and if you do you must hang onto it. You must not let yourself be waylaid, and have it taken from you. 


“The constant happiness is curiosity.” 


“The thing is to be happy,' he said. 'No matter what. Just try that. You can. It gets to be easier and easier. It's nothing to do with circumstances. You wouldn't believe how good it is. Accept everything and then tragedy disappears. Or tragedy lightens, anyway, you're just there, going along easy in the world.” 


“One stroke of lightning does not have to lead anywhere, but to the next stroke of lightning.”
