I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Hannah  Green
“The rose-garden world of perfection is a lie... and a bore, too!”

Jess liked a quote
I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Hannah  Green
“And if I fight, then for what?"
"For nothing easy or sweet, and I told you that last year and the year before that. For your own challenge, for your own mistakes and the punishment for them, for your own definition of love and of sanity - a good strong self with which to begin to live.”
Joanne Greenberg

Susanna Kaysen
“Are you crazy? It's a common phrase, I know. But it means something particular to me: the tunnels, the security screens, the plastic forks, the shimmering, ever-shifting borderline that like all boundaries beckons and asks to be crossed. I do not want to cross it again.”
Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted
