“Tell me if I’m doing something weird. Sometimes I can’t tell.”

Francesca Zappia, Made You Up

“You know I’m old in some ways-in others-well, I’m just a little girl. I like sunshine and pretty things and cheerfulness-and I dread responsibility.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise

“Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.” — J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

“Even when I am alone, I have real good company – dreams and imaginations and pretendings.”

L.M. Montgomery, Anne’s House of Dreams

“It was good, and nothing good is truly lost. It stays part of a person, becomes part of their character. So part of you goes everywhere with me. And part of me is yours, forever.”

Rosamunde Pilcher, The Shell Seekers

“Let me tell you a truth… No matter what choice you make, it doesn’t define you. Not forever. People can make bad choices and change their minds and hearts and do good things later; just as people can make good choices and then turn around and walk a bad path. No choice we make lasts our whole life. If there’s ever a choice you’ve made that you no longer agree with, you can make another choice”

Jonathan Maberry, Dust and Decay

Mostly, however, he had books about love. He believed in studying his own heart this way.

“Never love a wild thing… You can’t give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do, the stronger they get. Until they’re strong enough to run.”

Truman Capote, Breakfast At Tiffany’s

“I am that clumsy human, always loving, loving, loving. And loving. And never leaving.” — Frida Kahlo

“I have always thirsted for knowledge, I have always been full of questions.”

Herman Hesse, Siddhartha
