Robert Frost once said, 'In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.' It's a lot like nature. You only have as many animals as the ecosystem can support and you only have as many friends as you can tolerate the bitching of - Randy K. Milholland "Forget regret or life is yours to miss, no other road, no other way. No DAY BUT TODAY"~RENT "It's all in the view Macy. That's what I mean about forever, too. For any one of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. You can never know for sure, so you'd better make every second count." ~The Truth about Forever “I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.” Gilda Radner Young girls are told you have to be the delicate princess. Hermione taught them that you can be a warrior -Emma Watson "you ready?" he asked. I nodded. "go ahead. It's your turn" "Okay," he said. "let's see...." We'd start slow, the way we always did, because the run, and the game, could go on for a while. Maybe even forever. that was the thing. you just never knew. forever was so many different things. it was always changing, it was what everything was really about. It was 20 minutes, or a hundred years, or just this instant, or any instant i wished would last and last. but there was only one truth about forever that really mattered, and that was this: it was happening. Right then, as i ran with Wes into that bright sun, and every moment afterwards."~The Truth about Forever “Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.” — Carlos Ruiz Zafon, The Shadow of the Wind "You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining the future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present."- Alaska- Looking for Alaska "Is the labyrinth living or dying? Which is he trying to escape—the world or the end of it?"- Alaska- Looking for Alaska "Y'all smoke to enjoy it. I smoke to die."- Alaska- Looking for Alaska The Colonel ran ahead of me, gleeful at his ejection, and I jogged after him, trailing in his wake. I wanted to be one of those people who have streaks to maintain, who scorch the ground with their intensity. But for now, at least I knew such people, and they needed me, just like comets need tails. -Miles(Pudge)-Looking for Alaska "How do you get out of the labyrinth of suffering?" - Alaska- Looking for Alaska "I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane."-Miles(Pudge)-Looking for Alaska "I would always love Alaska Young, my crooked neighbor, with all my crooked heart."-Miles(Pudge)-Looking for Alaska "A room without books is like a body without a soul."~ Cicero "If I have not read a book before, it is, for all intents and purposes, new to me whether it was printed yesterday or three hundred years ago." ~ William Hazlitt The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues. - Elizabeth Taylor Make up a story... For our sake and yours forget your name in the street; tell us what the world has been to you in the dark places and in the light. Don't tell us what to believe, what to fear. Show us belief's wide skirt and the stitch that unravels fear's caul. - Toni Morrison Tis the privilege of friendship to talk nonsense, and to have her nonsense respected. - Charles Lamb You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go... - Dr. Seuss There is no friend as loyal as a book.~ Ernest Hemingway I cannot live without books. -Thomas Jefferson To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.-Victor Hugo “I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once.”-Hazel-The Fault in Our Stars “My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.” -Augustus-The Fault in Our Stars “What a slut time is. She screws everybody.” -The Fault in Our Stars “Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” -The Fault in Our Stars “there is no shortage of fault to be found amid our stars” -The Fault in Our Stars “Maybe 'okay' will be our 'always” -The Fault in Our Stars "Okay?" "Okay." "Oh my god! Stop flirting with me!" "Okay."- The Fault in Our Stars I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people. - John Lennon “If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic.”
