Ruta Sepetys
“Good men are often more practical than pretty " said Mother. "Andrius just happens to be both.”
Ruta Sepetys, Between Shades of Gray

Paolo Maurensig
“Life's temptations have the purpose of putting our spiritual integrity to the test. To yield to them, however, gives one a precarious and tormented satisfaction. But the worst temptations are those we give in to without getting anything in return except for the brutal discovery of our weakness.”
Paolo Maurensig
