“It's a broken life we live. It's best to accept it and move on rather than waste a good day worrying about it.”
Lisa Alfonso, Believe

“You can't just look at me like that and expect me to get over it.”
Lisa Alfonso, Believe

“Believe nothing others tell you. That is Rule No 1 of life in Astro City.

But what if the ones who set the rules are the ones lying to you?

What if the ones who reprimand the rule-breakers are lying to you?

Who do you believe when there is nobody left to believe?”
Lisa Alfonso, Believe

“listen: there’s a hell
of a good universe next door; let’s go”
E.E. Cummings

“I have never been convinced there's anything inherently wrong in having fun. ”
George Plimpton

“I'd rather die my way than live yours.”
Lauren Oliver, Delirium

“Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. an alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.”
Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper
