""Stadiums and equipment were created for Quidditch—a sport that took place in the air." Why did they feel like it's necessary to include that last bit in a book that literally only Harry Potter fans read?" Aug 19, 2015 01:41PM

“You are beautiful because you let yourself feel, and that is a brave thing indeed.”
Shinji Moon

Robyn Schneider
“It was like the part of me that had enjoyed those friends had evaporated, leaving behind a huge, echoing emptiness, and I was scrabbling on the edge of it, trying not to fall into the hole within myself because I was terrified to find out how far down it went.”
Robyn Schneider, The Beginning of Everything

John Corey Whaley
“Dr. Webb says that losing a sibling is oftentimes much harder for a person than losing any other member of the family. "A sibling represents a person's past, present, and future," he says. "Spouses have each other, and even when one eventually dies, they have memories of a time when they existed before that other person and can more readily imagine a life without them. Likewise, parents may have other children to be concerned with--a future to protect for them. To lose a sibling is to lose the one person with whom one shares a lifelong bond that is meant to continue on into the future.”
John Corey Whaley, Where Things Come Back

Jen Campbell
“bookshops are
time machines
& safe places.

(this book is for those who know this to be true)”
Jen Campbell, The Bookshop Book

Veronica Roth
“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.

But sometimes it doesn't.

Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.

That is the sort of bravery I must have now.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant
