The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.
John Green, Looking for Alaska
Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like ‘maybe we should just be friends’ or ‘how very perceptive’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.
don’t attach yourself to anyone who shows you the least bit of attention because you’re lonely. Loneliness is the human condition. No one is ever going to fill that space. The best you can do is know yourself… know what you want.
Janet Fitch, White Oleander
Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end
Semisonic, Closing Time
We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand… and melting like a snowflake. Let us use it before it is too late.
Marie Beyon Ray
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.
Every man at some point in his life is going to lose a battle. He is going to fight and he is going to lose. But what makes him a man is at the midst of that battle he does not lose himself. This game is not over, this battle is not over.
Kyle Chandler, Friday Night Lights
The truth is that there are a lot of people like you, us, with strange hobbies or talents or gifts and we try to hide it because we’re afraid that it makes us seem weird or turn people off, but that’s a mistake. What makes me unique has bought every person I love into my life.
Lee Pace, Pushing Daisies
Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.
Winnie the Pooh
She’s my person. If I murdered someone, she’s the person I’d call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor. She’s my person.
Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy
- Jerry Seinfeld: Elaine, what percentage of people would you say are good looking?
- Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Twenty-five percent.
- Jerry Seinfeld: Twenty-five percent, you say? No way! It’s like 4 to 6 percent. It’s a twenty to one shot.
- Julia Louis-Dreyfus: You’re way off.
- Jerry Seinfeld: Way off? Have you been to the motor vehicle bureau? It’s like a leper colony down there.
- Julia Louis-Dreyfus: So what you are saying is that 90 to 95 percent of the population is undateable?
- Jerry Seinfeld: UNDATEABLE!
- Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Then how are all these people getting together?
- Jerry Seinfeld: Alcohol.
…as human beings sometimes it’s better to stay in the dark. Because in the dark there may be fear, but there is also hope.
Ellen Pompeo, Grey’s Anatomy

This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died.
Kelly Cutrone, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside: And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You
We shall have to repent in this generation , not so much for the evil deeds of the wicked people, but for the appalling silence of the good people
Martin Luther King Jr.
‘The horror of that moment,’ the King went on, ‘I shall never, never forget!’ ‘You will, though,’ the Queen said, ‘if you don’t make a memorandum of it. ‘
Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass
