Stephen Chbosky
“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

John F. Kennedy
“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.”
John F. Kennedy

Sloane Crosley
“Because, ten-year-olds of the world, you shouldn't believe what your teachers tell you about the beauty and specialness and uniqueness of you. Or, believe it, little snowflake, but know it won't make a bit of difference until after puberty. It's Newton's lost law: anything that makes you unique later will get your chocolate milk stolen and your eye blackened as a kid. Won't it, Sebastian? Oh, yes, it will, my little Mandarin Chinese-learning, Poe-reciting, high-top-wearing friend. God bless you, wherever you are.”
Sloane Crosley, I Was Told There'd Be Cake: Essays

Annie Dillard
“A writer looking for subjects inquires not after what he loves best, but after what he alone loves at all.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Henry Miller
“The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.”
Henry Miller
