    C. JoyBell C.
    “She didn't belong anywhere and she never really belonged to anyone. And everyone else belonged somewhere and to someone. People thought she was too wonderful. But she only wanted to belong to someone. People always thought she was too wonderful to belong to them or that something too wonderful would hurt too much to lose. And that's why she liked him-- because he just thought she was crazy.”
    C. JoyBell C.

    Stephen Chbosky
    “I don't even remember the season. I just remember walking between them and feeling for the first time that I belonged somewhere.”
    Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

  • #3
    Hugo Hamilton
    “Maybe your country is only a place you make up in your own mind. Something you dream about and sing about. Maybe it's not a place on the map at all, but just a story full of people you meet and places you visit, full of books and films you've been to. I'm not afraid of being homesick and having no language to live in. I don't have to be like anyone else. I'm walking on the wall and nobody can stop me.”
    Hugo Hamilton, The Speckled People: A Memoir of a Half-Irish Childhood

    Coco Chanel
    “It’s probably not just by chance that I’m alone. It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he’s terribly strong. And if he’s stronger than I, I’m the one who can’t live with him. … I’m neither smart nor stupid, but I don’t think I’m a run-of-the-mill person. I’ve been in business without being a businesswoman, I’ve loved without being a woman made only for love. The two men I’ve loved, I think, will remember me, on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness. I’ve done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts, but with a taste for justice.”
    Coco Chanel

    Hunter S. Thompson
    “It never got weird enough for me.”
    Hunter S. Thompson

  • #6
    Coco Chanel
    “There is no time for cut-and-dried monotony. There is time for work. And time for love. That leaves no other time.”
    Coco Chanel

  • #7
    Coco Chanel
    “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.”
    Coco Chanel

  • #8
    Elizabeth Gilbert
    “The only thing more unthinkable than leaving was staying; the only thing more impossible than staying was leaving. I didn't want to destroy anything or anybody. I just wanted to slip quietly out the back door, without causing any fuss or consequences, and then not stop running until I reached Greenland.”
    Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

  • #9
    Shauna Niequist
    “There are times when the actual experience of leaving something makes you wish desperately that you could stay, and then there are times when the leaving reminds you a hundred times over why exactly you had to leave in the first place.”
    Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way

  • #10
    John Green
    “I leave, and the leaving is so exhilarating I know I can never go back. But then what? Do I just keep leaving places, and leaving them, and leaving them, tramping a perpetual journey?”
    John Green, Paper Towns

  • #11
    John Green
    “That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfeast cereals based on color instead of taste.”
    John Green, Paper Towns

  • #12
    John Green
    “It's easy to like someone from a distance. But when she stopped being this amazing unattainable thing or whatever, and started being, like, just a regular girl with a weird relationship with food and frequent crankiness wh's kind of bossy--then I had to basically start liking a whole different person.”
    John Green

  • #13
    John Green
    “And as paralyzing and upsetting as all the never agains were, the final leaving felt perfect. Pure. The most distilled possible form of liberation. Everything that mattered except one lousy picture was in the trash, but it felt so great. I started jogging, wanting to put even more distance between myself and school.
    It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.”
    John Green, Paper Towns

  • #14
    E.B. White
    “All that I hope to say in books, all that I ever hope to say, is that I love the world.”
    E.B. White

  • #15
    J.K. Rowling
    “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”
    J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

  • #16
    Craig Ferguson
    “....maybe fear is God's way of saying, "Pay attention, this could be fun.”
    Craig Ferguson, American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

  • #17
    Jodi Picoult
    “When you're different, sometimes you don't see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn't.”
    Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart

  • #18
    Fred Rogers
    “Part of the problem with the word 'disabilities' is that it immediately suggests an inability to see or hear or walk or do other things that many of us take for granted. But what of people who can't feel? Or talk about their feelings? Or manage their feelings in constructive ways? What of people who aren't able to form close and strong relationships? And people who cannot find fulfillment in their lives, or those who have lost hope, who live in disappointment and bitterness and find in life no joy, no love? These, it seems to me, are the real disabilities.”
    Fred Rogers, The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember

    C. JoyBell C.
    “I don't fit into any stereotypes. And I like myself that way.”
    C. JoyBell C.

  • #20
    C. JoyBell C.
    “The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself.What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it's your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who's not full of hate, who's able to smile and be carefree. So that's who I have to be.”
    C. JoyBell C.

    Keith Richards
    “I've never had inner turmoil about all this. You find a lot of people these days who cannot stand to be alone. You could lock me up in solitary for weeks on end, and I'd keep myself amused.”
    Keith Richards

    Kristin Cashore
    “I know you don't want this, Katsa. But I can't help myself. The moment you came barreling into my life I was lost. I'm afraid to tell you what I wish for, for fear you'll... oh, I don't know, throw me into the fire. Or more likely, refuse me. Or worst of all, despise me," he said, his voice breaking and his eyes dropping from her face. His face dropping into his hands. "I love you," he said. "You're more dear to my heart than I ever knew anyone could be. And I've made you cry; and there I'll stop.”
    Kristin Cashore, Graceling

    Cassandra Clare
    “Good. Because I don't need protecting."

    "I knew you'd say that.But the thing is, sometimes you do. And sometimes I do. We're meant to protect each other, but not from everything. Not from the truth. That's what it means to love someone but let them be themselves.”
    Cassandra Clare, City of Lost Souls

  • #24
    Margaret Mitchell
    “Like most girls, her imagination carried her just as far as the altar and no further.”
    Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

  • #25
    Margaret Mitchell
    “Her burdens were her own and burdens were for shoulders strong enough to bear them.”
    Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

  • #26
    Margaret Mitchell
    “She could not ignore life. She had to live it and it was too brutal, too hostile, for her even to try to gloss over its harshness with a smile.”
    Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

  • #27
    Margaret Mitchell
    “Land is the only thing in the world that amounts to anything.”
    Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

  • #28
    Margaret Mitchell
    “She couldn't survey the wreck of the world with an air of casual unconcern.”
    Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

  • #29
    Margaret Mitchell
    “If Gone With the Wind has a theme it is that of survival. What makes some people come through catastrophes and others, apparently just as able, strong, and brave, go under? It happens in every upheaval. Some people survive; others don't. What qualities are in those who fight their way through triumphantly that are lacking in those that go under? I only know that survivors used to call that quality 'gumption.' So I wrote about people who had gumption and people who didn't.”
    Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind

  • #30
    Margaret Mitchell
    “We bow to the inevitable. We’re not wheat, we’re buckwheat! When a storm comes along it flattens ripe wheat because it’s dry and can’t bend with the wind. But ripe buckwheat’s got sap in it and it bends. And when the wind has passed, it springs up almost as straight and strong as before. We aren’t a stiff-necked tribe. We’re mighty limber when a hard wind’s blowing, because we know it pays to be limber. When trouble comes we bow to the inevitable without any mouthing, and we work and we smile and we bide our time. And we play along with lesser folks and we take what we can get from them. And when we’re strong enough, we kick the folks whose necks we’ve climbed over. That, my child, is the secret of the survival.”
    Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind
