Daniel Handler
“The thing with your heart's desire is that your heart doesn't even know what it desires until it turns up.”
Daniel Handler, Why We Broke Up
tags: love

Susan Cain
“Theodor Geisel (otherwise known as Dr. Seuss) spent his workdays ensconced in his private studio, the walls lined with sketches and drawings, in a bell-tower outside his La Jolla, California, house. Geisel was a much more quiet man than his jocular rhymes suggest. He rarely ventured out in public to meet his young readership, fretting that kids would expect a merry, outspoken, Cat in the Hat–like figure, and would be disappointed with his reserved personality. “In mass, [children] terrify me,” he admitted.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Daphne du Maurier
“I wondered why it was that places are so much lovelier when one is
alone.”
Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

Daniel Handler
“...the moron who thought love was forever.”
Daniel Handler, Why We Broke Up

Susan Cain
“The highly sensitive [introverted] tend to be philosophical or spiritual in their orientation, rather than materialistic or hedonistic. They dislike small talk. They often describe themselves as creative or intuitive. They dream vividly, and can often recall their dreams the next day. They love music, nature, art, physical beauty. They feel exceptionally strong emotions--sometimes acute bouts of joy, but also sorrow, melancholy, and fear. Highly sensitive people also process information about their environments--both physical and emotional--unusually deeply. They tend to notice subtleties that others miss--another person's shift in mood, say, or a lightbulb burning a touch too brightly.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
