“Someday, we’ll run into each other again, I know it.
Maybe I’ll be older and smarter and just plain better. If that happens,
that’s when I’ll deserve you. But now, at this moment, you can’t hook
your boat to mine, because I’m liable to sink us both.”
Gabrielle Zevin, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac

“It was strange, really. A couple months ago, I had thought I couldn’t live without him. Apparently I could.”
Gabrielle Zevin, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac

“I was crying a little for the boy I had wanted him to be and the boy he hadn’t turned out to be.”
