“There's nothing quite as good as folding up into a book and shutting the world outside.If I pick the right one I can be beautiful, or fall in love, or live happily ever after. Maybe even all three.”
From Tiff, the main character in "A straight line to my heart" by Bill Condon (Allen & Unwin 2011)

“Sometimes words just don't get you there... don't let you say all the stuff from deep in your heart, stuff that no dictionary has a name for.”
Bill Condon, A Straight Line to My Heart

“That day I think we really saw each other for the first time. I mean, saw beyond the bag of bones on the outside. You take away her pretty and my plain and what you get underneath is about the same: a couple of lost girls looking to be found.”
Bill Condon, A Straight Line to My Heart
