"I’ll walk forever with stories inside me that the people I love the most can never hear."
"I wanted to marry an absence."
"I was made for another planet altogether. I mistook the way."
Simone de Beauvoir
"I love you - I do - but I am afraid of making that love too important. Because you’re always going to leave me. We can’t deny it. You’re always going to leave."
David Levithan, Every Day
"She’s mad, but she’s magic."
"She decides to make a list of the things that make her happy. She writes ‘plum-blossom’ at the top of a piece of paper. Then she stares at the paper, unable to think of anything else. Eventually it begins to get dark."
"I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary."
"In the end there doesn’t have to be anyone who understands you. There just has to be someone who wants to."
"Well, let it pass, he thought; April is over, April is over. There are all kinds of love in the world, but never the same love twice."
F. Scott Fitzgerald, Magnetism
"My imagination gave me a dual life: I lived in my body, and at the same time lived a life no one could see."
"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life."
Henry David Thoreau
"It wasn’t until I started reading and found books they wouldn’t let us read in school that I discovered you could be insane and happy and have a good life without being like everybody else."
