Lemony Snicket
“There is no point in delaying crying. Sadness is like having a vicious alligator around. You can ignore it for only so long before it begins devouring things and you have to pay attention.”
Lemony Snicket, Why Is This Night Different from All Other Nights?

Evanna Lynch
“And maybe I will live a happier, wilder, more colourful and unpredictable life if I can finally abandon the debilitating and brutal pursuit of perfection. If I can learn to love butterflies from afar, and watch them fly away.”
Evanna Lynch, The Opposite of Butterfly Hunting: The Tragedy and The Glory of Growing Up; A Memoir

Jennifer Niven
“You’re probably better at math than I am, because pretty much everyone’s better at math than I am, but it’s okay, I’m fine with it. See, I excel at other, more important things—guitar, sex, and consistently disappointing my dad, to name a few. By the way, it's apparently true that you'll never use it in the real world. Math, I mean.”
Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places

W. Somerset Maugham
“People don't want reasons to do what they'd like to. They want excuses.”
W. Somerset Maugham, Theatre

Mary Norris
“The alphabet is the greatest invention of humankind, and even has a spark of the divine: it gave us the written word, which gave us the means to communicate with both the past and the future.”
Mary Norris, Greek to Me: Adventures of the Comma Queen
