Erik Pevernagie
“When relationships lose their pitch through lack of interest and become stale or unbearable through enduring stealthy backbiting, the emotional house of cards is under attack. A painstaking reshuffle, however, may brand a new choice of life and create energy for positive thinking, whereas remaining bogged down in dispiriting situations and staying clogged up with immaterial hassle may only spawn forlorn deadlocks.. ("Mes cliques et mes claques")”
Erik Pevernagie

Erik Pevernagie

Mark R. Levin

Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway: Quotes, Verse, and Grumblings for Every Day of the Year

Alfred Hayes
“I made spasmodic efforts to work, assuring myself that once I began working I would forget her. The difficulty was in beginning. There was a feeling of weakness, a sort of powerlessness now, as though I were about to be ill but was never quite ill enough, as though I were about to come down with something I did not quite come down with. It seemed to me that for the first time in my life I had been in love, and had lost, because of the grudgingness of my heart, the possibility of having what, too late, I now thought I wanted. What was it that all my life I had so carefully guarded myself against? What was it that I had felt so threatened me? My suffering, which seemed to me to be a strict consequence of having guarded myself so long, appeared to me as a kind of punishment, and this moment, which I was now enduring, as something which had been delayed for half a lifetime. I was experincing, apparently, an obscure crisis of some kind. My world acquired a tendency to crumble as easily as a soda cracker. I found myself horribly susceptible to small animals, ribbons in the hair of little girls, songs played late at night over lonely radios. It became particularly dangerous for me to go near movies in which crippled girls were healed by the unselfish love of impoverished bellhops. I had become excessively tender to all the more obvious evidences of the frailness of existence; I was capable of dissolving at the least kind word, and self-pity, in inexhaustible doses, lay close to my outraged surface. I moved painfully, an ambulatory case, mysteriously injured.”
Alfred Hayes, In Love

Bodie Thoene
“Sometime the only way t' keep goin' is t' keep goin'.”
Bodie Thoene, Shiloh Autumn

Elizabeth Goudge
“The years stretched before her, a long and dusty way, yet if she could walk humbly along it she might find that life, unfolding slowly, keeps its best secrets till the end.”
Elizabeth Goudge, The White Witch

Jonathan Lethem
“Apparently Brooklyn needn't always push itself to be something else, something conscious and anxious, something pointed toward Manhattan.... Brooklyn might sometimes also be pleased, as here on Flatbush, to be its grubby, enduring self.”
Jonathan Lethem, The Fortress of Solitude

Holly Black
“I want to scream at him! Do you know how hard it is to always keep your head down? To swallow insults and endure outright threats? And yet I have done so. I thought it proved my toughness. I thought if you saw I could take whatever came at me and still smile, you would see that I was worthy.”
Holly Black, The Cruel Prince

Elizabeth Goudge
“Cousin Mary hoped her journey through periods of dark and light was like that of a Swiss train toiling up the mountainside, in and out of tunnels but always a little farther up the hill at each emergence. But she could only hope that this was so, she did not feel it. It seemed to her that she did not advance at all and that what she was learning now was only to hold on. The Red Queen in Alice Through the Looking Glass, she remembered, had had to run fast merely to stay where she was, but doubtless she had run in hope, disdaining despair; and hope, Cousin Mary discovered, when deliberately opposed to despair, was one of the tough virtues.”
Elizabeth Goudge, The Scent of Water

Leigh Bardugo
“The idea that this was a thing he could face and conquer, or even be destroyed by, was so much easier to accept than the notion of a nightmare he would have to endure forever.”
Leigh Bardugo, King of Scars

Rachel   Harrison
“I wonder how much of a woman's life is spent this way. Enduring. Waiting for enjoyment or, fuck it, death.”
Rachel Harrison, Cackle

Sarah J. Maas
“Azriel lingered near the door, quiet enough that when Feyre and Mor began talking about some of her paintings, Nesta went over to him.

'Why don't you sit?' She leaned against the doorway beside the shadow singer.

'My shadows don't like the flames so much.' A pretty lie. She'd seen Azriel before the fire plenty. But she looked at who sat close to it and knew the answer.

'Why did you come if it torments you so much?'

'Because Rhys wants me here. It'd hurt him if I didn't come.'

'Well, I think holidays are stupid.'

'I don't.'

She arched a brow. He explained, 'They pull people together. And bring them joy. They are a time to pause and reflect and gather, and those are never bad things.' Shadows darkened his eyes, full of enough pain that she couldn't stop herself from touching his shoulder. Letting him see that she understood why he stood in the doorway, why he wouldn't go near the fire.

His secret to tell, never hers.”
Sarah J. Maas, A ​Court of Silver Flames

Steven Seril
“Malkuthians… I’m bleeding. I bleed with you. Malkuthians, I’m hurting. I hurt with you. Malkuthians, I’m struggling. I struggle with you. It’s true, Hod has been destroyed. Malkuth is the last major stronghold still standing. With that said, the outcome of this battle will decide the future of our Union. This is the new Capital of our civilization.” - Autumn Antares from "The Destroyer of Worlds by Steven Seril”
Steven Seril, The Destroyer of Worlds: An Answer to Every Question

Sarah J. Maas
“that I would never be a gentle grower of things or someone who burned like fire—but that I would be quiet and enduring and as faceted as the night. That I would have beauty, for those who knew where to look, and if people didn't bother to look, but to only fear it … Then I didn't particularly care for them, anyway. I wonder if, even in my despair and hopelessness, I was never truly alone.”
Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

“Without forgiveness, there is no enduring friendship.”
Lailah Gifty Akita
