My secret is that I need God—that I am sick and can no longer make it alone. I need God to help me give, because I no longer seem to be capable of giving; to help me be kind, as I no longer seem capable of kindness; to help me love, as I seem beyond being able to love.

“Come and kiss me and let’s forget.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald

“Sometimes when you meet someone, there’s a click. I don’t believe in love at first sight, but I believe in that click.”

Ann Aguirre

“The poison leaves bit by bit, not all at once. Be patient. You are healing.”

Yasmin Mogahed

“Some nights the sky wept stars that quickly floated and disappeared into the darkness before our wishes could meet them.”

Ishmael Beah

“There is a truth deep down inside of you that has been waiting for you to discover it, and that truth is this: you deserve all good things life has to offer. ” — Rhonda Byrne, The Secret

“I’m like that. Either I forget right away or I never forget.”

Samuel Beckett

“I am too young and I’ve loved you too much.”

Fyodor Dostoevsky

“I have noticed that when all the lights are on, people tend to talk about what they are doing – their outer lives. Sitting round in candlelight or firelight, people start to talk about how they are feeling – their inner lives. They speak subjectively, they argue less, there are longer pauses. To sit alone without any electric light is curiously creative. I have my best ideas at dawn or at nightfall, but not if I switch on the lights – then I start thinking about projects, deadlines, demands, and the shadows and shapes of the house become objects, not suggestions, things that need to done, not a background to thought.”

Jeanette Winterson

“I don’t think there’s anything sadder than when two people are meant to be together and something intervenes.”

Walter Bishop
