“Sometimes you have to endure painful things to realize that you're a whole lot stronger than you think.”
Jenn Bennett, Alex, Approximately

“He looks toward the ocean, dark purple with the last rays of light. "My mom says we're all connected--people and plants and animals. We all know one another on the inside. It's what's on the outside that distracts. Our clothes, our words, our actions. Shark attacks. Gunshots. We spend our lives trying to find other people. Sometimes we get confused and turned around by the distractions." He smiles at me. "But we didn't.”
Jenn Bennett, Alex, Approximately

“Don't be cautious. Be careful,' she reminds me. Cautious people are afraid of the unknown and avoid it. Careful people plan so that they're more confident when they face the unknown.”
Jenn Bennett, Starry Eyes
