Mandy Hale
“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it.

March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

C. JoyBell C.

Kazuo Ishiguro
“All I know is that I've wasted all these years looking for something, a sort of trophy I'd get only if I really, really did enough to deserve it. But I don't want it anymore, I want something else now, something warm and sheltering, something I can turn to, regardless of what I do, regardless of who I become. Something that will just be there, always, like tomorrow's sky. That's what I want now, and I think it's what you should want too. But it will be too late soon. We'll become too set to change. If we don't take our chance now, another may never come for either of us.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, When We Were Orphans

Kirstie Alley

better than just one.”

“You have been given a second chance to start your life over. You can't throw this opportunity away. If you do you will be a colossal fool.

Isn't that what you want to show your kids?”
Lorena Bathey, Beatrice Munson
