“You are in my blood. I cant help it. We can't be anywhere except together”
Francesca Lia Block, Weetzie Bat

“Wish on everything. Pink cars are good, especially old ones. And stars of course, first stars and shooting stars. Planes will do if they are the first light in the sky and look like stars. Wish in tunnels, holding your breath and lifting your feet off the ground. Birthday candles. Baby teeth.”
Francesca Lia Block

“Magic can be found in stolen moments.”

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Dill was off again. Beautiful things floated around in his dreamy head. He could read two books to my one, but he preferred the magic of his own inventions. He could add and subtract faster than lightning, but he preferred his own twilight world, a world where babies slept, waiting to be gathered like morning lilies.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

“When you live in a city with no stars to wish on, you have to wish on each other.”
Sarah Herrington
