“I believe in love. I believe in hard times and love winning. I believe marriage is hard. I believe people make mistakes. I believe people can want two things at once. I believe people are selfish and generous at the same time. I believe very few people want to hurt others. I believe that you can be surprised by life. I believe in happy endings.”
Isabel Gillies, Happens Every Day: An All Too True Story

“Love must be extraordinarily powerful for so many people to ignore dangerous, red, blaring warning signs - or not to be able to see them at all until it is too late.”

“ it is about trying to light a candle instead of cursing the darkness, and loving your life even if it has slipped away”
