Selene liked a quote
V for Vendetta by Alan Moore
“My mother said I broke her heart...but it was my integrity that was important. Is that so selfish? It sells for so little, but it's all we have left in this place. It is the very last inch of us...but within that inch we are free.”
Alan Moore

On the Road by Jack Kerouac
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
Jack Kerouac

Henry Ward Beecher
“Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?”

Margaret Atwood
“Love blurs your vision; but after it recedes, you can see more clearly than ever. It's like the tide going out, revealing whatever's been thrown away and sunk: broken bottles, old gloves, rusting pop cans, nibbled fishbodies, bones. This is the kind of thing you see if you sit in the darkness with open eyes, not knowing the future.”
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eye

George Santayana
“Sanity is a madness put to good uses.”
George Santayana, The Essential Santayana: Selected Writings

Albert Einstein
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
Albert Einstein
