I listen when people tell me it’s important. I try to convince myself of it too. But every weekend and every evening I have the same tug-of-war with myself over whether I’m actually willing to put it into practice.

“People don’t exist in just the light or the dark. They exist in the contrast. In the shadows where the two overlap.”
Laekan Zea Kemp, The Girl In Between

“Because the truth was I was tired. I was tired of fighting but more importantly I was tired of losing, of being disappointed.”
Laekan Zea Kemp, The Girl In Between

“That was one of the worst things about being sick. Someone was always waiting on you, which meant disappointing people was inevitable.”
Laekan Zea Kemp, The Girl In Between

“I am not a smart man, particularly, but one day, at long last, I stumbled from the dark woods of my own, and my family's, and my country's past, holding in my hands these truths: that love grows from the rich loam of forgiveness; that mongrels make good dogs; that the evidence of God exists in the roundness of things.

Wally Lamb, I Know This Much Is True

“Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

“I tried to contain myself... but I escaped!”
Gary Paulsen

“Knowing where you come from is one thing, but it's suicide to stay there.”
Dennis Covington, Salvation on Sand Mountain: Snake-Handling and Redemption in Southern Appalachia

“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”
Albert Einstein
