    Tiffanie DeBartolo
    “For what its worth, I think happiness is a fleeting condition, not a permanent goddamn state of mind. I've learned that if you chase after moments of bliss here and there, sometimes those moments will sustain you through the shit. ...Personally, I don't like inherently happy people. I don't trust them. I think there is something seriously wrong with anyone who isn't at least a little let down by the world." - Paul Hudson”
    Tiffanie DeBartolo, How to Kill a Rock Star

    “I am of the theory that all of our transcendental connections, anything we're drawn to, be it a person, a song, a painting on a wall--they're magnetic. The art is the alloy, so to speak. And our souls are equipped with whatever properties are required to attract that alloy. I'm no scientist so I don't really know what the hell these properties are, but my point is we're drawn to stuff we've already got a connection to. Part of the thing is already inside of us.”

    “We’re all searching for something to fill up what I like to call that big, God-shaped hole in our souls. Some people use alcohol, or sex, or their children, or food, or money, or music, or heroin. A lot of people even use the concept of God itself. I could go on and on. I used to know a girl who used shoes. She had over two-hundred pairs. But it’s all the same thing, really. People, for some stupid reason, think they can escape their sorrows.”
    Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole

    Renee Carlino
    “It’s the only way to know you’re really in love, when you ask the question would it be harder to watch him die, or to know he’ll watch me die? Is there more mercy in being the one who does the watching or in being the one who does the dying? It’s when you realize what mercy-killing actually means, it’s when you actually care to the point of tormenting worry. It’s not roses and white horses, it’s fucking brutal and it can send a person running for the hills. To love is brave.”
    Renee Carlino, Sweet Thing

    “Dawn makes a sound. If you listen closely right as the sun starts to come up, you’ll hear it. It’s like the echo of birth; silence, followed by a gentle push, moans, and then the sloppy deluge of life. On good days I like it because it reminds me that I am alive. On bad days it makes me feel like dust.”
    Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole

    J.A. Redmerski
    “Just because one person's problem is less traumatic than another's doesn't mean they're required to hurt less”
    J.A. Redmerski, The Edge of Never

  • #7
    Janet Fitch
    “Always learn poems by heart. They have to become the marrow in your bones. Like fluoride in the water, they'll make your soul impervious to the world's soft decay.”
    Janet Fitch, White Oleander

    Lauren Oliver
    “But maybe happiness isn't in the choosing. Maybe it's in the fiction, in the pretending: that wherever we have ended up is where we intended to be all along.”
    Lauren Oliver, Requiem

    Megan Hart
    “Does madness bring creativity? Or does creativity cause madness? Can an artist create without the ups so high and the downs so low?”
    Megan Hart, Broken

    J.A. Redmerski
    “Just that dwelling and planning is bullshit, you dwell on the past, you can’t move forward. Spend too much time planning for the future and you just push yourself backwards, or you stay stagnant in the same place all your life. Live in the moment, where everything is just right, take your time and limit your bad memories and you’ll get wherever it is you’re going a lot faster and with less bumps in the road along the way.”
    J.A. Redmerski, The Edge of Never

    Jamie McGuire
    “To douchebags!" he said, gesturing to Brad. "And to girls that break your heart," he bowed his head to me. His eyes lost focus. "And to the absolute fucking horror of losing your best friend because you were stupid enough to fall in love with her.”
    Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster

    Megan Hart
    “Memory can refuse to let you forget what you’d like to and run away with what you want to remember. It’s an unreliable bitch, or your best friend. Sometimes, it’s both at once.”
    Megan Hart, Broken

    Megan Hart
    “Sometimes, you turn back.
    Sometimes, you walk away.
    And sometimes, you find the place you're meant to be, and you stay there. You find a way to make it work.
    Whatever it takes. ”
    Megan Hart, Switch

    “Sometimes grief is a comfort we grant ourselves because it's less terrifying than trying for joy. Nobody wants to admit it. We'd all declare we want to be happy, if we could. So why, then, is pain the one thing we most often hold on to? Why are slights and griefs the memories on which we choose to dwell? Is it because joy doesn't last but grief does?”
    Megan Hart, Dirty

    “You know what the best part of the stars is?"
    "What's that?"
    "They're the same no matter what sky you're standing under. I mean...yeah, they might move or look like they're in a different place, but they're the same stars."
    "Yeah? So?"
    "So even if you're apart from someone you want to be with, you can look up at the stars and know they're looking at the same ones.”
    Megan Hart, Deeper

    Michelle Hodkin
    “Noah shifted on the bed, and the oddest crunching sound came underneath him. I looked, really looked, at the bed for the first time.

    "What," I asked slowly, as I eyed the animal crackers strewn all over it, "the hell?"

    "You were convinced they were your pets," Noah said, not even trying to suppress his laughter. "You wouldn't let me touch them.”
    Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

    Jamie McGuire
    “I didn't say you were a bad person. I just don't like being a foregone conclusion for sole reason of having a vagina." I focused on the grains of salt on the table until I heard a choking noise from Travis's direction.
    His eyes widened and he quivered with howling laughter. "Oh my God! You're killing me! That's it. We have to be friends. I won't take no for an answer.”
    Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster

    Maria V. Snyder
    “Everyone makes choices in life. Some bad, some good. It's called living, and if you want to bow out, then go right ahead. But don't do it halfway. Don't linger in whiner's limbo.”
    Maria V. Snyder, Poison Study

  • #21
    Michelle Hodkin
    “You're supposed to say, 'All I want is your happiness. I'll do whatever it takes, even if it means being without you.'"

    Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

  • #22
    Michelle Hodkin
    “Where are you going?”
    “My God, you’re like the plague.”
    “A masterfully crafted, powerfully understated, and epic parable of timeless moral resonance? Why, thank you. That’s one of the nicest things anyone’s ever said to me,” he said.
    “The disease, Noah. Not the book.”
    “I’m ignoring that qualification.”
    Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

    “And you’re not afraid of it ending?”

    “Sure I am. But I’d rather have something this good for a little while than have nothing forever.”
    Megan Hart, Dirty

    “I'm not trying to bag you. I just wanna hang out."
