Lauren Graham
“Over and over in the play my character says, "I'm thirty-two years old," as if that should explain everything that's wrong in her life. I don't know what it's like to be thirty-two, but I can imagine. I imagine she means she's stuck in an in-between time, she's at an age that isn't a milestone but more of a no-man's-land, an age where she's feeling like her hopes are fading.”
Lauren Graham, Someday, Someday, Maybe

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
“There’s only one rule I know of—Goddam it, you’ve got to be kind.”
Kurt Vonnegut, If This Isn't Nice, What Is?: Advice for the Young

Sarah Strohmeyer
“Because high school only comes around once, and I would hate to look back and think I didn’t make the most of every moment because I was scared of what other people thought. Other people never think that much about you anyway. Eleanor Roosevelt said that.”
Sarah Strohmeyer, Smart Girls Get What They Want

Beth Kephart
“Maybe all that matters is that they love each other, still, the way people who have known each other will always love each other.”
Beth Kephart, Small Damages

Rainbow Rowell
“I don’t think I’m any good at this. Boy–girl. Person–person. I don’t trust anybody. Not anybody. And the more that I care about someone, the more sure I am they’re going to get tired of me and take off.”
Rainbow Rowell, Fangirl
