“I don't want to stay in the bad place, where no one believes in silver linings or love or happy endings.”
Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook

“If clouds are blocking the sun, there will always be a silver lining that reminds me to keep on trying.”
Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook

“Life is not a PG feel-good movie. Real life often ends badly. Literature tries to document this reality, while showing us it is still possible for us to endure nobly.”
Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook
