All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
J.R.R. Tolkien

Jonathan Safran Foer
“She was a genius of sadness, immersing herself in it, separating its numerous strands, appreciating its subtle nuances. She was a prism through which sadness could be divided into its infinite spectrum.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Adrienne Rich
“There must be those among whom we can sit down and weep and still be counted as warriors.”
Adrienne Rich

Lemony Snicket

Sarah Dessen
“That was the thing. You never got used to it, the idea of someone being gone. Just when you think it's reconciled, accepted, someone points it out to you, and it just hits you all over again, that shocking.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“When a girl feels that she’s perfectly groomed and dressed she can forget that part of her. That’s charm”
