Quotes Sarah Liked

Sarah Dessen
“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“It's all in the view. That's what I mean about forever, too. For any one of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. You never know for sure, so you'd better make every second count.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“If this was my forever, I wouldn't want to spend it here. ”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“It's just that...I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“But I'd long ago learned not to be picky in farewells. They weren't guaranteed or promised.
You were lucky, more than blessed, if you got a good-bye at all.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“But that was the problem with having the answers. It was only after you gave them that you realized they sometimes weren't what people wanted to hear.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

“That was the thing. You never got used to it, the idea of someone being gone. Just when you think it's reconciled, accepted, someone points it out to you, and it just hits you all over again, that shocking.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“Sawooon”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“What you have to decide... is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you'd want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. You know that more than anybody. So dont be afraid. Be alive.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“the truth about forever is that it is happening right now”
