“You’re deflecting.” I just stared at her. “You’re right that self isn’t simple, Aza. Maybe it’s not even singular. Self is a plurality, but pluralities can also be integrated, right? Think of a rainbow. It’s one arc of light, but also seven diff...

“Easy? I never said it was easy.” Gina turned toward her a little. “Look, Maddy, you may already know this, but life can be a living hell—in the most real, literal sense. And even when it’s not quite that bad, it can still leave you”
A.K. Williams, Life Lost and Found

“a wreck, wouldn’t you say?” Madeline bobbed her head in agreement. “Exactly. So don’t make it even harder on yourself by worrying about stupid things that don’t matter and are completely out of your control. Think about it. That guy over there, crossing the street—let’s say he saw you trip earlier. If he thought you were the dumbest, clumsiest moron of a girl he’d ever seen—what difference would it make? How would that affect you at all? His random, pointless opinion doesn’t suddenly change your friends, your work, your grades, your bank account—nothing. It only affects you if you let it, which means the solution is simple—don’t let it. You have more important things to worry about.” Madeline stared straight ahead, angry. Sure, Gina had a point. Maybe. But it was still too simple. You can’t just snap your fingers and decide not to care. “What if he’s in one of my classes? Then”
A.K. Williams, Life Lost and Found

“Gina looked momentarily surprised, then at a loss for words, and then her tone became urgent. “You can’t listen to them. You can’t keep repeating what they’ve told you over and over in your head. Do not give them that power. Do not give anyone, anywhere that power over you.” She closed her eyes for a second, seeming to collect herself. “Look, I know what I’m saying. I know it’s way, way easier said than done—I really do. And you’ll never stop caring one hundred percent, no matter what. No one can do that. But I guess what I’m saying is, you have to at least try. Trust me, you need to.”
A.K. Williams, Life Lost and Found

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
Jane Austen, Pride And Prejudice

“I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.”
Jane Austen, Jane Austen's Letters

“The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!”
Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
