Matthew Quick

Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook

Criss Jami
“What man ever openly apologizes for slander? It is not so much a feeling of slander as it is that of a massive lie, a misdeed not only to the slandered but also to those manipulated in the process. He has made them all, every one, his enemies, thereupon he is so overwhelmed with guilt that he will deny it until his grave.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Hank Green

Hank Green, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing

“Please don't give me words; give me a hug. Don't tell me that I'm holding up so well; break down with me and admit our shared wretchedness. Don't feign some bright mountaintop; walk with me through the dark valley where neither of us can utter a word.”
Robert Dykstra, She Never Said Good-Bye

Nenia Campbell
“Understanding did not provide solace or make the pain go away; in many ways, understanding was just more salt in the emotional wound. Ignorance allowed one to fight back with unfettered cruelty. Understanding inspired empathy, which led to guilt, as well as suffering.

She looked at Gavin, supine, unconcerned, contented, and thought that perhaps there was something to being a sociopath. If you didn't have a heart, it couldn't be broken.”
Nenia Campbell, Terrorscape

“For he or she that harbours no fear has never truly loved anything. You can only measure true love by the thought and fear of its loss.”
Chris Jirika

Charles Dickens
“But struggling with these better feelings was pride,--the vice of the lowest and most debased creatures no less than of the high and self-assured. The miserable companion of thieves and ruffians, the fallen outcast of low haunts, the associate of the scourings of the jails and hulks, living within the shadow of the gallows itself,--even this degraded being felt too proud to betray a feeble gleam of the womanly feeling which she thought a weakness, but which alone conneced her with that humanity, of which her wasting life had obliterated so many, many traces when a very child.”
Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist

Colleen Hoover
“There's no other way to describe how I feel. I know the way I think about her and feel about her is wrong, but I struggle so much with how right it feels when I'm with her.”
Colleen Hoover, Maybe Someday

“I am not afraid of anything in the world. But I'm afraid of myself, afraid of what I will be in the future.”
Luffina Lourduraj

Karen Foxlee
“If i could have sung it would be a very sad song.”
Karen Foxlee, The Anatomy of Wings

“Whenever you feel down, remember it is always daylight somewhere on this rock we call Earth. Whenever you are belittled by a human, remember that she or he does not represent the whole for the Earth is way bigger than any puny creature you may encounter.”
Lamine Pearlheart, Aether

“Then he asked me which one I thought was most likely to happen. I wish I knew. I really do. But I don’t. You’d think that after living with these people for fifteen years I’d know a little something about them. But right now I feel like I don’t know my parents at all. I guess
when you get down to it, I’ve never really thought about them as people. They’ve always been my parents. Now I have to think about them as people with feelings. What a pain.
The funny thing is, I bet they feel the same way.”
Michael Thomas Ford, Suicide Notes

“I am sitting here at thirty-six feeling like I am responsible for the holocaust for all that is toxic and wrong. Maybe it’s because I eat meat, and I stepped on three ants last Tuesday.”
Amber Garibay

Parul Agrawal
“The silence encompassing the feeling so juvenile, veiling everything but a sham smile.”
Parul Agrawal

“This mix of love and hate, this blend of trust and hurt I have for him is so confusing even I can't understand it.
He leaves, and I break.”
Tammy Faith, Broken Heart

Fisher Amelie
“Fear, sadness. They’re not weaknesses. They are overpowering, defining emotions. They make you human, Sophie.”
“They are signs of defect,” I told him, reverting back to curt Sophie.
“Says who?”
“Because I — because...”
“Let me guess. Because you are not proud of yourself? Because you despise who you are?”
“Because, if you show these emotions, they acknowledge those thoughts?”
I was deadly silent for five minutes at least. “Yes,” I stated, breaking the absence of sound.
“Do something about it.”
“There’s nothing to do. I’m lost.”
“Bullshit. You don’t really believe that. You want to stick with what’s easy for you. You foresee the amount of work it would take to transform yourself and you’re too frightened to embrace the challenge. Now, that, Sophie Price, is a real weakness.”
Fisher Amelie, Vain

Leo Tolstoy
“He felt that if they had both not kept up appearances, but had spoken, as it is called, from the heart—that is to say, had said only just what they were thinking and feeling—they would simply have looked into each other's faces, and Konstantin could only have said, "You're dying, you're dying!" and Nikolay could only have answered, "I know I'm dying, but I'm afraid, I'm afraid, I'm afraid!" And they could have said nothing more, if they had said only what was in their hearts. But life like that was impossible, and so Konstantin tried to do what he had been trying to do all his life, and never could learn to do, though, as far as he could observe, many people knew so well how to do it, and without it there was no living at all. He tried to say what he was not thinking, but he felt continually that it had a ring of falsehood, that his brother detected him in it, and was exasperated at it.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Charlotte Brontë
“But let me not hate and despise myself too much for these feelings: I know them to be wrong—that is a great step gained; I shall strive to overcome them.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“If you feel like defeated only then you have been chaotic. Otherwise "DEFEAT" will never dare to beat you.”
M. Azeem Pasha

“When you are weak and you feel down in life. Let the Lord be your strength!”
