Quotes Laura Liked

Sarah Dessen
“It's all in the view. That's what I mean about forever, too. For any one of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now. You never know for sure, so you'd better make every second count.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“It's just that...I just think that some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It's the universe's way of providing contrast, you know? There have to be a few holes in the road. It's how life is.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Sarah Dessen
“We'd start slow, the way we always did, because the run, and the game, could go on for awhile. Maybe even forever.
That was the thing. You just never knew. Forever was so many different things. It was always changing, it was what everything was really all about. It was twenty minutes, or a hundred years, or just this instant, or any instant I wished would last and last. But there was only one truth about forever that really mattered, and that was this: it was happening. Right then, as I ran with Wes into that bright sun, and every moment afterwards. Look, there. Now. Now. Now.”
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

“I like flaws. I think they make things interesting.”

“That's not a real answer.'
Says who?'
Says me. I mean real fear, like of failure, of death, of regret. Like that. Something that keeps you awake nights, questioning your very existence.'
Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

Khusbu Shrestha I just finished this book Cece. Get through those couple chapters, trust me you will love it :)

Hannah H. This is MY all time favorite book! It was the first book I've read by her but I absolutely love it! The funny thing is if someone asked me why I like it so much I don't think I would be able to explain it properly.... I just love this book!
