Tahereh Mafi
“So she told me a story. A story about a boy who was born with very green eyes, and the man who was so captivated by their color that he searched the world for a stone in exactly the same shade.” His voice is fading now, falling into whispers so quiet I can hardly hear him. “She said the boy was me. That this ring was made from that very same stone, and that the man had given it to her, hoping one day she’d be able to give it to me. It was his gift, she said, for my birthday." He stops. Breathes. “And then she took it off, slipped it on my index finger, and said, ‘If you hide your heart, he will never be able to take it from you'.”

“You’re perfect,” I tell him, so overcome I forget myself. “All of you. Your entire body.
Proportionally. Symmetrically. You’re absurdly, mathematically perfect. It doesn’t even make sense

“She searches me with those odd, blue-green eyes and I feel guilty so suddenly, without understanding why. But there’s something about the way she looks at me that always makes me feel insignificant, as if she’s the only one who’s realized I’m entirely hollow inside. She’s found the cracks in this cast I’m forced to wear every day, and it petrifies me. That this girl would know exactly how to shatter me.”

“Juliette." I close my eyes. He says, "I don't want you to call me Warner anymore." I open my eyes. "I want you to know me," he says, breathless, his fingers pushing a stray strand of hair away from my face. "I don't want to be Warner with you," he says. "I want it to be different now. I want you to call me Aaron.”

“Because I was dying.
  And Warner could’ve let me die. He was angry and hurt and had every reason to be bitter. I’d just ripped his heart out; I’d let him believe something would come of our relationship. I let him confess the depth of his feelings to me; I let him touch me in ways even Adam hadn't. I didn't ask him to stop.
  Every inch of me was saying yes.
  And then I took it all back. Because I was scared, and confused, and conflicted. Because of Adam.
  Warner told me he loved me, and in return I insulted him and lied to him and yelled at him and pushed him away. And when he had the chance to stand back and watch me die, he didn’t.
  He found a way to save my life.
  With no demands. No expectations. Believing full well that I was in love with someone else, and that saving my life meant making me whole again only to give me back to another guy.
  And right now, I can’t say I know what Adam would do if I were dying in front of him. I’m not sure if he would save my life. And that uncertainty alone makes me certain that something wasn't right between us.”

Tahereh Mafi
“In the steady thrum that accompanies quiet, my mind is unkind to me. I think too much. I feel, perhaps, far more than I should. It would be only a slight exaggeration to say that my goal in life is to outrun my mind, my memories.”

“Warner has collapsed in the corner.
He's curled into himself, kness pulled up to his chest. arms wrapped around his legs, his head buried in this arms. And he's shaking.
Tremors are rocking his entire body.
I've never, ever seen him look like a child before. Never, not once, not in all the time I've known him. But right now, he looks just like a little boy. Scared, Vulnerable. All alone.
...
I touch his arms, so gently. I run my hand down his back, his shoulders. And then I dare to wrap myself around him until he slowly breaks apart, unfolding in front of me.
He lifts his head.
His eyes are red-rimmed and a startling, striking shade of green, shining with barely restrained emotion. His face is the picture of so much pain.
I almost can't breathe.
An earthquake hits my heart then, cracks it right down the middle. And It hink here, in him, there is more feeling then any one person should ever have to contain.
I try to hold him closer but he wraps his arms around my hips instead, his head falling into my lap. I bend over him instinctively, shielding his body with my own.
I press my cheek to his forehead. Press a kiss to his temple.
And then he breaks.
Shaking violently, shattering in my arms, a million gasping, choking pieces I'm trying so hard to hold together. And I promise myself then, in that moment that I will hold him forever, just like this, until all the pain and torture and suffering is gone, until he's given a chance to live the kind of life where no one can wound him this deeply ever again.”

“Juliette-Julietter, love, wake up-wake up"
...
Warner's hands cup my face. The warmth of his skin helps calm me somehow, and I finally feel my heart rate begin to slow. "Look at me." he says.
I force myself to meet his eyes, shaking as I catch my breath.
"It's okay," he whispers, still holding my cheeks. "It was just a bad dream. Try closing your mouth," he says, "and breathing through your nose." He nods. "There you go. Easy. You're okay." His voice is so soft, so melodic, so inexplicably tender.
...
"I won't let you go until you are ready," he tells me. "Don't worry take your time.”

Tahereh Mafi
“В най-мрачните дни трябва да потърсиш светло местенце, в най-студените дни трябва да потърсиш топло местенце, в най-злощастните дни трябва да гледаш напред и нагоре, а в най-печалните дни трябва да отвориш очи, да им позволиш да леят сълзи. После да ги оставиш да изсъхнат. Да им дадеш възможност да отмият болката, за да виждат ясно отново.”

Tahereh Mafi
“Не съм мечтала за красиви дрехи или приказни обувки, или скъпи неща. Не съм си мечтала да се облека в коприна от глава до пети. Мечтаех единствено да протегна ръка и да докосна друго човешко същество, не само с ръцете си, но и със сърцето си. Но виждах света в неотзивчивостта му, както и жестокото му, сурово порицание.. и студените му, презрителни очи. Виждах го навсякъде край себе си.
Имах толкова много време да се вслушвам.
Да наблюдавам.
Да изучавам хора, места и възможности. Трябваше единствено да отворя очи. Да отворя някоя книга - да видя как историите се пропиват от страница в страница. Да видя спомените, запечатани на хартия.
Прекарах живота си затворена между страниците на безброй книги.
Заради липсата на човешки взаимоотношения си създадох връзки с хартиени персонажи. Изживях любов и загуба чрез разказите, преплетени в историята; изживях юношеството си по аналогия. Светът ми представлява плетеница от думи, свързваща крайник с крайник, кости със сухожилия, мисли и представи. Аз съм същество, съставено от букви, персонаж, оживял в изречения, въображаемо създание, родено от художествена измислица.
Те искат да изтрият от лицето на земята всеки пунктуационен знак в живота ми, аз не мога да им го позволя..”

“Копнеех да повярвам във вълшебните приказки и щастливите завършеци... и отворените врати. Копнеех да се попреструвам на по-добър човек, но вместо това успях да надхвърля дори кошмарния облик, който околните ми бяха изградили.”

“…понякога умираме, понякога сме на път да избухнем, понякога сме на 2 метра под земята и търсим прозорче, когато някой полива с бензин косите ни и подпалва лицата ни. Усещам как костите ми лумват в огън.”
