John Green
“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

Pope John Paul II
“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.

It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal.”
Pope John Paul II

C.S. Lewis
“I was with book, as a woman is with child.”
C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces

Sarah Dessen
“I am coming to terms with the fact that loving someone requires a leap of faith, and that a soft landing is never guaranteed.”
Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

C.S. Lewis
“Lucy went first, biting her lip and trying not to say all the things she thought of saying to Susan. But she forgot them when she fixed her eyes on Aslan.”
C.S. Lewis, Prince Caspian

Heart and Brain (Literature & Fiction)
2 chapters   —   updated Sep 14, 2010 08:10AM
Description: A little something I wrote a little over a year ago, found it in one of my many, many blogs online. This is the story of two friends Heart and Brian, and Heart's love problems. It's not romance, but it has a hint of it, or lack of it, actually. :) And no, there is no typo in the title. :) Thought it's appropriate to post here (especially the second chapter, given the nature of this site.
Resolutions (Romance)
