"There are days when none of us can bear it, but the good comes around again. Happiness is seasonal, like anything else. Wait it out. There are people who love you. People who can help."
E.L. Konigsburg, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
"It’s not my responsibility to be beautiful, I’m not alive for that purpose. My existence is not about how desirable you find me."
"There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see."
"There are 7 billion people on this planet who I have not met,
and 195 countries I have not visited.
Yet I am stuck in this insignificant town,
Being pressured into making decisions about my future,
When I barely even know who I am."
"For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over again."
"You get what anybody gets - you get a lifetime."
"I have a million things to talk to you about. All I want in this world is you. I want to see you and talk. I want the two of us to begin everything from the beginning."
