Ann Brashares, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

“Parents were the only ones obligated to love you; from the rest of the world you had to earn it.”
Ann Brashares, Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood

“Maybe, sometimes, it's easier to be mad at the people you trust because you know they'll always love you, no matter what.”
