“Because this is what happens when you try to run from the past. It just doesn’t catch up, it overtakes … blotting out the future.”
Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

“Music is a total constant. That's why we have such a strong visceral connection to it, you know? Because a song can take you back instantly to a moment, or a place, or even a person. No matter what else has changed in your or the world, that one song says the same, just like that moment.”
Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

“Silence is so freaking loud”
Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

Sarah Dessen
“All I'd ever wanted was to forget. But even when I thought I had, pieces had kept emerging, like bits of wood floating up to the surface that only hint at the shipwreck below. Because that is what happens when you try to run from the past. It doesn't just catch up: it overtakes, blotting out the future, the landscape, the very sky, until there is no path left except that which leads through it, the only one that can ever get you home.”
Sarah Dessen, Just Listen
