Jonathan Safran Foer
“Every widow wakes one morning, perhaps after years of pure and unwavering grieving, to realize she slept a good night's sleep, and will be able to eat breakfast, and doesn't hear her husband's ghost all the time, but only some of the time. Her grief is replaced with a useful sadness. Every parent who loses a child finds a way to laugh again. The timbre begins to fade. The edge dulls. The hurt lessens. Every love is carved from loss. Mine was. Yours is. Your great-great-great-grandchildren's will be. But we learn to live in that love.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

Jonathan Safran Foer
“This is love, she thought, isn't it? When you notice someone's absence and hate that absence more than anything? More, even, than you love his presence?”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Charlotte Brontë
“Flirting is a woman’s trade, one must keep in practice.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Victor Hugo
“Love has no middle term; either it destroys, or it saves. All human destiny is this dilemma. This dilemma, destruction or salvation, no fate proposes more inexorably than love. Love is life, if it is not death. Cradle; coffin, too. The same sentiment says yes and no in the human heart. Of all the things God has made, the human heart is the one that sheds most light, and alas! most night.”
Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
