Quotes Eileen Liked

Jodi Picoult
“I grew up in a household where we didn't really talk about our feelings, and where the only reason you went to a doctor was because you'd accidentally cut off a limb with a chain saw.”
Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home

Jodi Picoult
“There are so many things I can't believe. That people deserve what they get, both bad and good. That one day I'll live in a world where people are judged by what they do instead of who they are. That happy endings don't have contingencies and conditions.”
Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home

Jodi Picoult
“I don't know. But I do know that I'm at the stage of my life where I want forever, not right now.

I know that the first person I kissed won't be nearly as important as the last person I kiss.

And I also know better than to dream about things that can't happen.”
Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home

Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home

Jodi Picoult
“Imagine if you were the positive pole of a magnet, and you were told that under no circumstances were you allowed to touch that negative pole that was sucking you in like a black hole. Or if you crawled out of the desert and found a woman standing with a pitcher of ice water, but she held it out of your reach. Imagine jumping off a building, and then being told not to fall.

That's what it feels like to want a drink.”
Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home

Jodi Picoult
“I tell you this as a cautionary tale: beware of getting what you want. It's bound to disappoint you.”
Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home

Jodi Picoult
“But there is a different between mending someone who's broken and finding someone who makes you complete.”
Jodi Picoult, Sing You Home

Jodi Picoult
“The only difference between a wish and a prayer is that you're at the mercy of the universe for the first, and you've got some help with the second.”
