Quotes containing the word ghost

2. I'll never know, and neither will you, of the life you don't choose. We'll only know that whatever that sister life was, it was important and beautiful and not ours. It was the ghost ship that didn't carry us. There's nothing to do but salute it from the shore.
- Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar
