“The best parts of life are the things we can't plan. And it's a lot harder to find happiness if you're only searching in one place. Sometimes, you just have to throw away the map. Admit that you don't know where you're going and stop pressuring yourself to figure it out. Besides...a map is a life someone else already lived. It's more fun to make your own.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“Life was easier when you stopped caring, when you stopped expecting things to get better.”

“This funny thing happens when you graduate college. You hear so much about being an adult that you start to feel like you have to become a different person overnight, that growing up means being not you. And you concentrate so hard on living up to the term "adult" that you forget growing up happens by living, not by sheer force of will.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“You don't realize how small you really are until you're faced with something like that. We live our lives as if we're at the center of our own universe, but we're just tiny pieces of a shattered whole.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“Adventures don't happen when you're worried about the future or tied down by the past. They only exist in the now. And they always,always come at the most unexpected time,in the least likely of packages. An adventure is an open window; and an adventurer is the person willing to crawl out on the ledge and leap.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“The kind of tired that sleep doesn't fix. Just tired of...being.”

“New Life Realization #1:
Being an adult is hard work. I know people tell you this growing up, but it doesn’t really sink in until you’re living it, waist deep in the swamps of no-free-time and not-enough-money.
New Life Realization #2:
It’s worth it.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“Women love a mystery. But only if we think we can figure it out.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“It's a quiet thing when your heart breaks. I thought it would be loud, ... I thought it would drown everything else out. But it happened like a whisper. A small, clean split. It broke in a second, and the pain was little more than a pinprick. It's the echo that kills you. ... that tiny little sound kept bouncing around the cavern of my ribs, getting louder and louder. It multiplied until I heard a hundred hearts breaking, a thousand, more. All of them mine.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“I'm going to kiss you, princess. But not now, not when you're telling me to. Not when it's just something you want to check off a list. I'll kiss you when it counts.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It

Cora Carmack, Finding It
“If I believed the stories I learned growing up, God made the world in six days and on the seventh day he rested. I wonder if, like me, the eighth day was when he watched it all begin to unravel.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It

Cora Carmack, Finding It
“I want to memorize the way your eyes clench shut and you bite down on your lip, so that I can sketch your expression from memory. I want to know the exact angle of the way your neck curves, and how many times your heart beats a minute. I want to know everything.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“Life wasn't pretty, but it also wasn't scary until she met a man who touched her without taking and made her miss the pieces she had lost.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“You're the most confusing person I've ever met, and sometimes I hate you.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“There was no room for unhappiness when squeezed between two sets of washboard abs.
New life motto, right there.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It
“You want to hear it? Fine. It’s a simple story really, about a pretty girl who was pretty stupid. She let a man touch her because she was scared to say no, and then she told her parents because she was scared to say nothing. Then they were scared to do anything that might ruin their pretty little lives, so they told the girl that it was nothing. That just being touched wasn’t enough to fight for. Too scared to prove them wrong, she kept going like it was nothing, and she let more people touch her, never knowing that she was handing out pieces of herself. Or, hell, maybe she knew deep down, and she just hated herself so much that she was glad to be rid of them. And life wasn’t pretty, but it also wasn’t scary until she met a man with two names who touched her without taking and made her miss the pieces she had lost. And now things aren’t just scary, they’re fucking terrifying, and I can’t do it. I can’t live like this, knowing all that I’ve ruined and that it can’t be fixed.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It

Cora Carmack, Finding It
“I'm frustrated. I just don't know what you want from me.”
Cora Carmack, Finding It

Cora Carmack, Finding It
