I delete the picture of him from my phone; I delete his number. I think that if I just delete him enough, it will be like none of it ever happened and my heart won't hurt so badly.
Jenny Han, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

What horrifies me most is the idea of being useless: well-educated, brilliantly promising, and fading out into an indifferent middle-age.

“We know little about love. Love is like a pear. A pear is sweet and has a distinct shape. Try to define the shape of a pear.”

That's what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive - all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.

Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.
Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones

“Do you know what your problem is? You appear to be something that you’re not. You flaunt your otherness, what you consider to be your abnormality. You impose this upon yourself, never understanding that for most ordinary people, you yourself are one of the most normal people who ever lived. What difference does it make that your reflexes are faster, that your pupils become vertical slits in the sun, that you can see in the dark like a cat and that you can cast whatever spells you know? What do I care? ”

I want to be able to say to myself, "I bled truth with her", yes, that's what I want. Be a knife for me, and I, I swear, will be a knife for you.

I think you half-fall in love with every person you meet. It’s part of your charm. You’re in love with love.
