Quotes containing the word fumble


1. Words can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak.
- Margaret Weis, Dragons of a Lost Star
