A Love for the Written Word

"I wanted to find a place to hide from all of it, where the nightmares and the rivers and reality couldn't find me. For me, that place was always inside a book."

Lonesome Bride - Megan Hart
"There's one thing to be said for constant turmoil in one's life...It got easier and easier o remain standing when she felt like falling down.

His life was like a mountain- a long, rough climb through jagged peaks, then getting to the top only to find a valley on the other side."
"Sometimes life offers us a second chance to get it right...and sometimes life just offers us a second chance to say goodbye.

You hurt, you cry, you say goodbye...you move on, you grow strong, you remember how to fly.

"But there's another kind of love. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible.

I've been thinking of you constantly since i left, wondering why the journey i'm on seemed to have led through you. I know my journey''s not over yet, and that life is a winding path, but i can only hope it somehow circles back to the place i belong. That's how i think of it now. I belong with you.

Before we met, i was as lost as a person could be and yet you saw something in me that somehow gave me direction again

The greater the love, the greater the tragedy when it’s over.

Nights in Rodanthe - Nicholas Sparks

Death Is Forever - Elizabeth Lowell, Feron
"Life wasn't fair of unfair; it was simply unexpected. Sometimes life's surprises were breathtakingly beautiful. Sometimes they were breathtakingly cruel. But surprises were always the raw material of life."
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
"“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

"You just hold your head high and be a gentleman. Whatever she says to you, it's your job not to let her make you mad"

“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.''

“People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.''"
Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn
"“People love talking, and I have never been a huge talker. I carry on an inner monologue, but the words often don't reach my lips.”

“Love makes you want to be a better man. But maybe love, real love, also gives you permission to just be the man you are.” "

""It hurts to look at the clouds, but it also helps, like most things that cause pain.”

"Life is hard, and children have to be told how hard life can be…So they will be sympathetic to others. So they will understand that some people have it harder than they do and that a trip through this world can be a wildly different experience, depending on what chemicals are raging through one’s mind.”

“If clouds are blocking the sun, there will always be a silver lining that reminds me to keep on trying.”

“I am practicing being kind over being right.”

“Life is random and fucked-up and arbitrary, until you find someone who can make sense of it all for you— if only temporarily.”
Finale - Becca Fitzpatrick
"If i could make this go away, i would. If i could stand in your place, i wouldn't hesitate. But i'm left w/ one choice, and that's to stand by your side through the end. I won't waver, Angel, i can promise you that.

Silence - Becca Fitzpatrick
"I would lay down everything i posses, even my soul, for you. If that isn't love, it's the best i have.

Crescendo - Becca Fitzpatrick
"I'd pretend a relationship w/ Patch could work, because deep inside anytime w/ Patch had seemed better than nothing at all.

Maybe my mind was making me see things i refused to accept we're gone forever. It was filling the void, because that was easier than letting go.
