Jeanette Winterson
“You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it” is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?”
Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

Neil Gaiman
“It's like the people who believe they'll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn't work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. If you see what I mean.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

Jonathan Safran Foer
“The only thing more painful than being an active forgetter is to be an inert rememberer.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Jonathan Safran Foer
“I am doing something I hate for you. This is what it means to be in love.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Neil Gaiman
“You're alive, Bod. That means you have infinite potential. You can do anything, make anything, dream anything. If you can change the world, the world will change. Potential. Once you're dead, it's gone. Over. You've made what you've made, dreamed your dream, written your name. You may be buried here, you may even walk. But that potential is finished.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book
