“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere. We can't always understand them, but we have to trust in them. I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.”
Lauren Kate, Torment

“What if the person you were meant to be with could never be yours?”
Lauren Kate, Fallen

“Trust is a careless pursuit at best. At worst, it's a good way to get yourself killed.”
Lauren Kate, Fallen
