Just something that felt “wistful”?

“You know, in a lot of ways, your mom and me were a stupid idea. I think we both knew it wouldn’t be forver. We’re both too fucking proud. But God, that woman. Your mother is, without question, the love of my life. I’ll never love anyone else like that. It was wildfire. And I got you and June out of it, best things that ever happened to an asshole like me. That kind of love is rare, even if it was a complete disaster.” He sucks his teeth in considering.

“Sometimes you just jump and hope it’s not a cliff.”

This, in my opinion, is one of the best lines I have ever read. Especially by a side character.

Can you guess which book/author/character?

  1. We knew about the sadness and the feeling that we have or had a mother
    We are all from the one Great Mother
    We know that bonding with one’s mother cannot always be easy
    We must therefore not humiliate us because of the ambivalence itself
    If the experience with our mother wasn’t easy, we don’t have to bite our own fingers or throw ourselves in front of a car
    We have no secondary character in us, we have many of them in us so that we can grapple with the confusion in our hearts
    Our mother is not an idea, otherwise we would not have become an earth child
