Nicholas Sparks
“It's funny, but have you ever noticed that the more special something is, the more people seem to take it for granted? It's like they think it won't ever change. Just like this house here. All it ever needed was a little attention, and it would never have ended up like this in the first place.”
Nicholas Sparks, The Wedding

It's funny how, in this journey of life, even though we may begin at different

Vera Nazarian
“Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:

1. Acceptance
2. Understanding
3. Appreciation

Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.

Which, by the way, is something highly inadvisable. Think about it — do you really want to live in a world of only two dimensions?

So, for the love of a triangle, please keep love whole.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Alice Walker, The Color Purple

“My expectations were reduced to zero when I was 21. Everything since then has been a bonus."

Jarod Kintz
“Is a picture really worth a thousand words? What thousand words? A thousand words from a lunatic, or a thousand words from Nietzsche? Actually, Nietzsche was a lunatic, but you see my point. What about a thousand words from a rambler vs. 500 words from Mark Twain? He could say the same thing quicker and with more force than almost any other writer. One thousand words from Ginsberg are not even worth one from Wilde. It’s wild to declare the equivalency of any picture with any army of 1,000 words. Words from a writer like Wordsworth make you appreciate what words are worth.”
Jarod Kintz, This is the best book I've ever written, and it still sucks

Mandy Hale

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."

[Meditations Divine and Moral]”
Anne Bradstreet, The Works of Anne Bradstreet
