    Laurie Halse Anderson
    “Mr. Freeman: You are getting better at this, but it's not good enough. This looks like a tree,but it is an average, ordinary, everyday, boring tree. Breathe life into it. Make it bend - trees are flexible, so they don't snap. Scar it, give it a twisted branch - perfect trees don't exist. Nothing is perfect. Flaws are interesting. Be the tree.”
    Laurie Halse Anderson, Speak

    Laurie Halse Anderson
    “She cannot chain my soul.

    Yes, she could hurt me. She'd already done so. But what was one more beating? A flogging, even? I would bleed, or not. Scar, or not. Live, or not. But she could no longer harm Ruth, and she could not hurt my soul, not unless I gave it to her.

    This was a new notion to me and a curious one.”

    Jodi Picoult
    “It was one thing to make a mistake; it was another thing to keep making it. I knew what happened when you let yourself get close to someone, when you started to believe they loved you: you'd be disappointed. Depend on someone, and you might as well admit you're going to be crushed, because when you really needed them, they wouldn't be there. Either that, or you'd confide in them and you added to their problems. All you ever really had was yourself, and that sort of sucked if you were less than reliable.”
    Jodi Picoult, Handle with Care

    “A double-edged sword
    One side destroys
    One releases
    I am your Gordian knot
    Will you release or destroy me?
    Follow truth and you shall:
    Find me on water
    Purify me through fire
    Trapped by earth nevermore
    Air will whisper to you
    What spirit already knows:
    That even shattered
    anything is possible
    If you believe
    Then we shall both be free.”
