Louise Rennison
“I said, "Do you think she thinks it's me?"

Jas said, "Well, it's pretty conclusive, isn't it? She said 'the most sniveling idiot I have ever come across.'"

I said, "I didn't know that YOU have been seeing Masimo. Tom the Slug King is going to be very upset.”
Louise Rennison, Startled by His Furry Shorts

“Here is my recipe for a mood enhancer. Take a friend, preferably one with a really annoying fringe and outsize pants, and when she is rambling on swiftly, push her into a ditch and run away.”
Louise Rennison, Startled by His Furry Shorts

Alessandro Baricco
“Temo che il senso della vita sia estorcere la felicità a se stessi, tutto il resto è una forma di lusso dell'animo, o di miseria, dipende dai casi.”
Alessandro Baricco, Una certa idea di mondo

Antony John
“How did he keep playing when money got
really tight, and there was no more food in the house? How did he play on when it became clear he was flunking out of school? Was music really enough when the whole world seemed to be collapsing around him? Or was it just the only thing left?”
Antony John, Five Flavors of Dumb

John Green
“There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
