    “They reached the carriage house. When she turned the knob, he got all critical again. “Why isn’t this door locked?”

    “Something snapped inside her. “Of course I’m afraid! Relationships do bad things to me.” He started to respond, but the pain had gone on long enough, and she didn’t want to hear it. “You know what I want? I want peace. I want a good job and a decent place to live. I want to read books and listen to music and have time to make some female friendships that are going to last. When I wake up in the morning, I want to know that I have a decent shot at being happy. And here’s what’s really sad. Until I met you, I was almost there.”

    Susan Elizabeth Phillips
    “People will always try to steal
    your power. When you do well, they’ll say it’s only because you’re rich and your parents are big shots. People who care about you will try to steal
    your power, too, but they’ll go about it differently. When you fail at something, they’ll try to make you feel better by saying that nobody’s good at
    everything, and you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself. They might tell you not to feel bad about screwing up a math test because math’s hard for girls.
    Or they’ll say you shouldn’t worry so much about injustice in the world because you’re only one person. And even though they mean well, they’ll be
    making you less than what you can be.”
    Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Ain't She Sweet?

    Jane Austen
    “From the very beginning— from the first moment, I may almost say— of my acquaintance with you, your manners, impressing me with the fullest belief of your arrogance, your conceit, and your selfish disdain of the feelings of others, were such as to form the groundwork of disapprobation on which succeeding events have built so immovable a dislike; and I had not known you a month before I felt that you were the last man in the world whom I could ever be prevailed on to marry.”
    Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

    Jane Austen
    “To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love”
    Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

  • #21
    Jane Austen
    “You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever.”
    Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

  • #22
    Jane Austen

  • #23
    Jane Austen
    “An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do.”
    Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

    Jane Austen
    “I have faults enough, but they are not, I hope, of understanding. My temper I dare not vouch for. It is, I believe, too little yielding— certainly too little for the convenience of the world. I cannot forget the follies and vices of other so soon as I ought, nor their offenses against myself. My feelings are not puffed about with every attempt to move them. My temper would perhaps be called resentful. My good opinion once lost, is lost forever.”
    Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

  • #25
    Jane Austen
    “We all know him to be a proud, unpleasant sort of man; but this would be nothing if you really liked him.”

    Jane Austen

    “Things change, friends leave. And life doesn't stop for anybody.”
    Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    Stephen Chbosky
    “I don’t know if I will have the time to write any more letters, because I might be too busy trying to participate. So, if this does end up being the last letter, I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school, and you helped me. Even if you didn’t know what I was talking about, or know someone who’s gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don’t happen. And there are people who forget what it’s like to be sixteen when they turn seventeen. I know these will all be stories some day, and our pictures will become old photographs. We all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now, these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here, and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive. And you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song, and that drive with the people who you love most in this world. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.”
    Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    Stephen Chbosky
    “Put my head under my pillow, and let the quiet put things where they are supposed to be.”
