Jodi Picoult
“I suddenly remember being very little and being embraced by my father. I would try to put my arms around my father's waist, hug him back.

I held him, instead of him holding me, and all I wanted at that moment was to have it back the other way.”
Jodi Picoult, Vanishing Acts

“Tell me again about the girl whose hands
have no color. Whose hands are completely
white. This time make them damned, or
untouched, or have her open a red umbrella

or point at some maple leaves and damned
near cry. Those hands. As freakish goes,
I wish I had a tail. Maybe then you’d know
how much I like you. It shakes me through,

damn through. It shakes me. When she carries
a peacock feather. When she touches her neck
or thighs. You’re a person. It’s not so bad.
You have hands. You are a person with hands

to hold things. Things you like. Tremendous
things. Tell me what you will hold today. I
know there is room for everything. There is no
need to be ceremonious. Tell what gets let go.”
Rebecca Wadlinger

“In all your course, walk with God and follow Christ as a little, poor, helpless child, taking hold of Christ’s hand, keeping your eye on the mark of the wounds on his hands and side, whence came the blood that cleanses you from sin and hiding your nakedness under the skirt of the white shining robe of his righteousness.”
Jonathan Edwards, Jonathan Edwards' Resolutions: And Advice to Young Converts

Kim Edwards
“You hold me at arm's length.”
Kim Edwards, The Memory Keeper's Daughter

Chirag Tulsiani
“Our hearts bear a similarity with storerooms.
We hold in them our trampled convictions, our fears, suppressed acts of valor, disappointments, enmity, anguish, secrets, things we wish we should have done, things we wish we shouldn’t have, regret.
And continue piling them up with emotions, memories, conversations which did happen and conversations which didn’t, soured relationships and bitter people all of which we should have discarded, we keep it within until there is no space left, until the room is full, occupied after which we go on to lock it.
Once in a while we happen to open the room and sight the dust accumulated all over, we relive each moment, each memory and each emotion again and soon fall upon the realization as to how deeply the room is in need of cleaning and so we clean it.
We clean it so that we can fill it once more, hold it, bear it, relish it, heal from it and then finally let it go.”
Chirag Tulsiani

Wilkie Collins
“At any time, and under any circumstances of human interest, is it not strange to see how little real hold the objects of the natural world amid which we live can gain on our hearts and minds? We go to Nature for comfort in trouble, and sympathy in joy, only in books. Admiration of those beauties of the inanimate world, which modern poetry so largely and so eloquently describes, is not, even in the best of us, one of the original instincts of our nature.”
Wilkie Collins, The Woman in White

Jarod Kintz
“The best way to dig yourself out of a hole, is with a dead guy’s fingernails. Then, once you’re out of the hole, finish burying that dead guy before the cops arrive.”
Jarod Kintz, Seriously delirious, but not at all serious

Oche Otorkpa
“Raped at age nine by a relative and pregnant at 14 Oprah Winfrey,
like many others have experienced the wickedness and brutality of
our society. Sadly, it’s an environment where blood lines no longer
hold.”
Oche Otorkpa, The Unseen Terrorist

“Let your ambitions fly. Let nothing hold you back.”
Nabil N. Jamal

Kiera Cass
“You know that you've found something amazing, and you want to hold on to it forever; and every second after you have it, you fear the moment you might lose it."
Love is a beautiful fear.”
Kiera Cass, The Elite

“I don't know where my road is going, but I know that I walk better when I hold your hand.”
