"But it was unnecessary.
There would be other nights.
And how can you say I love you to someone you love?
Here is the point of everything I’ve been trying to tell you.
It’s always necessary."
- Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

And I know
You’re gonna be away awhile
But I’ve got no plans at all to leave
And would you take away my hopes and dreams
And just stay with me

All my senses come to life

While I’m stumbling home
As drunk as I have ever been
And I’ll never leave again
Cause you are the only one

Take my hand and my
Heart and soul, I will
Only have these eyes for you
And you know, everything changes but
We’ll be strangers if we see this through
You could stay within these walls and bleed
Or just stay with me

When the water meets the sky
Where your heart is free
And hope comes back to life
When these broken hands are whole again
We’ll find what we’ve been waiting for
We were made for so much more

We can be the kings and queens
Of anything if we believe
It’s written in the stars that shine above
A world where you and I belong
Where faith and love will keep us strong
Exactly who we are is just enough
There’s a place for us

"I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind."
- Neil Gaiman

The night is here
And the day is gone
And the world spins madly on
I thought of you
And where you’d gone
And the world spins madly on
And the world spins madly on
And the world spins madly on

"Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s swept away."
"I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right."
- Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
"A person is, among all else, a material thing, easily torn and not easily mended."
- Ian McEwan, Atonement
"Unless you have been very, very lucky, you have undoubtedly experienced events in your life that have made you cry. So unless you have been very, very lucky, you know that a good, long session of weeping can often make you feel better, even if your circumstances have not changed one bit."
- Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning
"The richness of the rain made me feel safe and protected; I have always considered the rain to be healing—a blanket—the comfort of a friend. Without at least some rain in any given day, or at least a cloud or two on the horizon, I feel overwhelmed by the information of sunlight and yearn for the vital, muffling gift of falling water."
"I’ve never had a moments doubt. I love you. I believe in you completely. You are my dearest one, my reason for life. He knew these last lines by heart and mouthed them now in the darkness. My reason for life. Not living, but life. That was the touch. And she was his reason for life, and why he must survive. He was too restless for sleep now. He wanted only to be walking to the coast."
- Ian McEwan, Atonement
"So now, all alone or not, you gotta walk ahead. Thing to remember is if we’re all alone, then we’re all together in that too."
- Cecelia Ahern, P.S. I Love You
"Hope like that, as I thought before, doesn’t make you a weak person. It’s hopelessness that makes you weak. Hope makes you stronger, because it brings with it a sense of reason. Not a reason for how or why they were taken from you, but a reason for you to live. Because it’s a maybe. A ‘maybe someday things won’t always be this shit.’ And that ‘maybe’ immediately makes the shittiness better."
- Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow
"You shouldn’t try to stop everything from happening. Sometimes you’re supposed to feel awkward. Sometimes you’re supposed to be vulnerable in front of people. Sometimes it’s necessary because it’s all part of you getting to the next part of yourself, the next day."
- Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow
