John Green
“All along — not only since she left, but for a decade before — I had been imagining her without listening, without knowing that she made as a poor a window as I did. And so I could not imagine her as a person who could feel fear, who could feel isolated in a roomful of people, who could be shy about her record collection because it was too personal to share. Someone who might have read travel books to escape having to live in the town that so many people escape to. Someone who — because no one thought she was a person — had no one to really talk to.”
John Green, Paper Towns

William Goldman
"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Bethany Griffin
“I’ve perfected the art of the fake smile. It’s not so difficult when you are completely numb.”
Bethany Griffin, Masque of the Red Death

“That is the mysterious thing about tragedy- it often strikes at the happiest moment.”
Christopher Pike, Red Dice

Rob Thomas
“Her strategy for honoring the dead had always been to take action - solve the mystery, punish the criminal. But what did you do when there was no one to punish? When there were no answers to find? How do you assimilate that kind of loss without losing your mind?”
Rob Thomas
