“Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don't know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn't you. That isn't you at all.”
Leila Sales, This Song Will Save Your Life

“Well, you can't have heartbreak without love," Dan pointed out. "If your heart was really broken, then at least you know you really loved him.”
Leila Sales, Past Perfect

“That's the problem with life. You never get enough time to stare at your ceiling and try to figure out what's going on.”
