“You never knew the last time you were seeing someone. You didn't know when the last argument happened, or the last time you had sex, or the last time you looked into their eyes and thanked God they were in your life.
After they were gone?
That was all you thought about.
Day and night.”
J.R. Ward, Lover Mine

Jennifer Niven
“People are shitty for a lot of reasons. Sometimes they're just shitty people. Sometimes people have been shitty to them and, even though they don't realize it, they take that shitty upbringing and go out into the world and treat others the same way. Sometimes they're shitty because they're afraid. Sometimes they choose to be shitty to others before others can be shitty to them. So it's like self-defensive shittiness.”
Jennifer Niven, Holding Up the Universe

“Or, God, maybe this was just life. For everyone on the planet. Maybe the Survivor's Club wasn't something you "earned," but simply what you were born into when you came out of your mother's womb. Your heartbeat put you on the roster and then the rest of it was just a question of vocabulary: the nouns and verbs used to describe the events that rocked your foundation and sent you flailing were not always the same as other people's, but the random cruelties of disease and accident, and the malicious focus of evil men and nasty deeds, and the heartbreak of loss with all its stinging whips and rattling chains... At the core, it was all the same.”
J.R. Ward, Lover Mine

Suck it up! A foolish grumble of advice. Why would I want to suck it up? Why draw it in to let it fester and rot internally until it cankers my insides?

I dare offer wiser words―spit it out! Weep, wail, and raise your voice to the heavens as fresh wounds bleed dry! And then cast it all to the wasteland of dead concerns to be consumed by vultures and maggots.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway

Greg Rucka
“We have our mission and we are going to complete it. So grab your straws and suck it the fuck up.”
Greg Rucka, Lazarus, Vol. 4: Poison

Kristin Newman
“I remembered the lesson my mom taught me at age seven in a swimming pool in Hawaii. I was a shy little girl and an only child, so on vacations I was usually playing alone, too afraid to go up to the happy groups of kids and introduce myself. Finally, on one vacation, my mom asked me which I'd rather have: a vacation with no friends, or one scary moment... After that, one scary moment became something I was always willing to have in exchange for the possible payoff. I became a girl who knew how to take a deep breath, suck it up, and walk into any room by herself.”

“..Just two short guys home for the holidays.'
Loafers bristled.
'What do you mean two short guys?'
Carla snapped the compact shut.
'Who are you talking to, McGuire? Because you couldn't be talking to me. Not in that tone.'
Loafers paled, his life flashing before him.
'I'm sorry, Miss Frazetti. It's just the short thing. I've been listening to it my whole life.'
'What do you want people to call you? Lofty? You're short, Loafers. Get over it. That's what
gives you your edge. My godfather always says there's nothing more dangerous than a short guy
with something to prove. That's why you've got a job.”
Eoin Colfer, The Eternity Code
