Awakenings

Quotes

Dr. Sayer:

I'm not terribly good with people. I like them. I wish I could say I had more than a rudimentary understanding of them. Maybe if they were less unpredictable...

What we do know is that, as the chemical window closed, another awakening took place; that the human spirit is more powerful than any drug and THAT is what needs to be nourished: with work, play, friendship, family. THESE are the things that matter. This is what we'd forgotten. The simplest things.


Leonard Lowe:

Hello. My name is Leonard Lowe. It has been explained to me that I've been away for quite some time.I'm back.


Mrs. Lowe:

When my son was born healthy, I never asked why. Why was I so lucky? What did I do to deserve this perfect child, this perfect life? But when he got sick, you can bet I asked why! I demanded to know why! Why was this happening?
