“Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.”
Marc Hack

Steven Wright
“To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.”
Steven Wright

“Maybe you are searching among the branches, for what only appears in the roots.”

Dorothy Parker
“Once, when I was young and true.
Someone left me sad -
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that is very bad.

Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope

Lemony Snicket
“When trouble strikes, head to the library. You will either be able to solve the problem, or simply have something to read as the world crashes down around you.”
Lemony Snicket
