More of Emily's books…
Hermann Hesse
“I have no right to call myself one who knows. I was one who seeks, and I still am, but I no longer seek in the stars or in books; I'm beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn't pleasant, it's not sweet and harmonious like the invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves.”
Hermann Hesse, Demian. Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

Bob Goff
“But the kind of love that God created and demonstrated is a costly one because it involves sacrifice and presence. It's a love that operates more like a sign language than being spoken outright.”
Bob Goff, Love Does: Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World

Lemony Snicket
“It is one of the peculiar truths of life that people often say things that they know full well are ridiculous.”
Lemony Snicket, The Slippery Slope

Lemony Snicket
“Literature doesn’t exactly have a strong mental-health track record.”
Lemony Snicket

Roald Dahl
“I was observing her closely as I talked, and after a while I began to get the impression that she was not, in fact, quite so merry and smiling a girl as I had been led to believe at first. She seemed to be coiled in herself, as though with a secret she was jealously guarding. The deep-blue eyes moved too quickly about the room, never settling or resting on one thing for more than a moment; and over all her face, though so faint that they might not even have been there, those small downward lines of sorrow.”
Roald Dahl, Someone Like You
