Cindy said, "Mrs.Kitteridge, did you get married? Tom said he heard you married Jack Kennison [...] She said, "Yes, it's true. I have married Jack Kennison." [...] we're both old enough to know things now, and that's good."
"When to shut up, mainly"
"What things do you shut up about?" Cindy asked [...] "Well, for example, when he has his breakfast, I don't say to him, Jack, why the hell do you have to scrape your bowl so hard" [...] Imagine at my age, starting over again [...] "But it's never starting over, Cindy, it's just continuing on."
