Barnacles

“God be thanked

that there are some in the world

to whose hearts

the barnacles will not cling.”

— J.G. Holland

“Bad memories can attach themselves like barnacles to the hulls of our lives. And, like barnacles, they have a disproportionately large amount of drag.” — Richard Paul Evans
