A book you read as a child but did not understand its substance till you were an adult. You find so many lessons on life and living amidst the story of the Baudeliare children that even a 23 year old can relate to now more than ever.

The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
“One of the most troublesome things in life is that what you do or do not want has very little to do with what does or does not happen.”
Lemony Snicket
Penelope liked a quote
The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
“It is very useful, when one is young, to learn the difference between "literally" and "figuratively." If something happens literally, it actually happens; if something happens figuratively, it feels like it is happening.

If you are literally jumping for joy, for instance, it means you are leaping in the air because you are very happy. If you are figuratively jumping for joy, it means you are so happy that you could jump for joy, but are saving your energy for other matters.”
Lemony Snicket

“For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been trust first.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Holly Black
“I wonder if he really could rationalize what I did to him, really treat betrayal like the slight transgression of a recalcitrant business partner. I wonder if I hurt him. If he can rationalize what I did to him, it’s easy to imagine how he rationalized what he did to me.”
Holly Black, Red Glove

Lemony Snicket
“One of the most troublesome things in life is that what you do or do not want has very little to do with what does or does not happen.”
Lemony Snicket, The Bad Beginning

Veronica Roth
“I could never hurt him enough to make his betrayal stop hurting. And it hurts, in every part of my body.”
Veronica Roth, Insurgent

S.C. Stephens
“I think in the end, you would have stayed with me, out of obligation...or maybe comfort. Maybe I was safe to you, and you needed to feel that. I know how scared you get of the unknown. To you...I must be kind of a security blanket. Do you see now, how that doesn't work for me? I don't want to be there, simply because the idea of me being gone is too...scary. I want to be someone's everything. I want fire and passion, and love that's returned, equally. I want to be someone's heart... Even if it means breaking my own.”
S.C. Stephens, Thoughtless
