My Favorite Quotes

“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”
Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
“Noah once told me he could hear horses galloping inside her.”
Jandy Nelson, I'll Give You the Sun
“When everyone knows you’re a monster, you needn’t waste time doing every monstrous thing.”
Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls
“The eighteen years he has lived seem but a moment, a breathing space in the long march of humanity. Already he hears death calling. With all his heart he wants to come close to some other human, touch someone with his hands, be touched by the hand of another.”
Sherwood Anderson, Winesburg, Ohio
“This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.”
David Levithan, Every Day
“It is a condition of monsters that they do not perceive themselves as such. The dragon, you know, hunkered in the village devouring maidens, heard the townsfolk cry ‘Monster!’ and looked behind him.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone
“I think I might kiss him. He’s right here. And his lips are hanging open (mouth breather) and his eyes are alive, alive, alive.”
Rainbow Rowell, Carry On
