Luz liked a quote

Stephen Hawking

Chuck Palahniuk
“Only after disaster can we be resurrected. It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything. Nothing is static, everything is evolving, everything is falling apart.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

Stephen Chbosky
“And in that moment, I swear we were infinite.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Chuck Palahniuk
“We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

George Orwell
“Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.”
George Orwell, 1984

Jane Austen
“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
