Jonathan Safran Foer
“Do you think I'm wonderful? she asked him one day as they leaned against the trunk of a petrified maple. No, he said. Why? Because so many girls are wonderful.

Donna Lynn Hope
“The world needs them - the ones who absorb the emotions of others, which diminishes their pain and disquietude and the world also uses them as a repository for confessions, secrets, grudges and indignation. They will leave these uncommon and intuitive individuals feeling unburdened themselves while the unusual individual will be weighed down by having taken on those burdens in addition to their own. The world needs them but what they need is something as aberrant as themselves, and that is silence, stillness and rest.”
Donna Lynn Hope

G.K. Chesterton
“Let me take once again a rough parable. Suppose I advertised in the papers that I had a place for any one who was too stupid to be a clerk. Probably I should receive no replies; possibly one. Possibly also (nay, probably) it would be from the one man who was not stupid at all. But suppose I had advertised that I had a place for any one who was too clever to be a clerk. My office would be instantly besieged by all the most hopeless fools in the four kingdoms. To advertise for exceptions is simply to advertise for egoists. To advertise for egoists is to advertise for idiots. It is exactly the bore who does think that his case is interesting. It is precisely the really common person who does think that his case is uncommon. It is always the dull man who does think himself rather wild. To ask solely for strange experiences of the soul is simply to let loose all the imbecile asylums about one's ears.”
G. K. Chesterton

“He studied the woman before him, not as lovely as she once was, ordinary in appearance, scarred by living, abandoned by many, breathtakingly to be near and altogether unforgettable. "I have no friends," she spoke forth hauntingly. "I am alone." He couldn't believe it. But then he could for the rare creature near enough to touch was out of their league. She wasn't envied for the shallowness of appearance or the superficiality of status or possessions; she was envied for being uncommon and for possessing indomitable strength, something only a lifetime of suffering could shape.”
Donna Lynn Hope

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Great things are born of common people who understand that to bend to the weight of fear is to crush the dream, but to bend to the weight of the dream is to crush the fear. And it is adhering to the former that keeps them ‘common,’ but it is committing to the latter that renders them entirely ‘uncommon.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Sanchita Sarin, Murder in Maldives

“there are few souls
who live with their
keeping themselves
alive through all
the trials and
they fight
during the day hours
and struggle
all through their life
but they never quit
or opt something else
for every night when
they go to sleep in their bed
they ask and question themselves
and make peace with their mind
they can never betray their soul
there are only few of such souls
alive and out of those few
i know
i’m one of them.
(living with madness)”
Gaurav S Kaintura
