“We’re here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark.” Whoopi Goldberg

 

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.” The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

 

“He could have talked with her until dawn and still not said everything, but she lay in the dark across from him, as if on another continent, their silence light night over open water.” A World Away, Stewart O’Nan

 

“Whatever teaches us to sing ourselves out of despair, is important…life is short…fate is cruel, but maybe not random…nature always wins but that doesn’t mean we have to bow and grovel to it. Even if we are not always so glad to be here, it’s our task to immerse ourselves anyway: wade straight through it while keeping our eyes and hearts open.” The Goldfinch, Donna Tartt

 

“A person is, among all else, a material thing, easily torn and not easily mended.” Atonement, Ian Mc Ewan

 

“Stop worrying about your identity and concern yourself with the people you care about, ideas that matter to you, beliefs you can stand by, tickets you can run on.

Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.” Letters to a Young Poet, Rainer Maria Rilke

 

“She is a friend of mind. She gather me, man. The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order. It’s good, you know, when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind.” Beloved, Toni Morrison

“The mood was promising, even the weather lending a hand because after they finished the food and left the diner, walking back to campus, a March drizzle forced them to share Madeleine’s umbrella. A feeling came over her like those she’d had as a girl when treated to a pastry or dessert, a happiness so fraught by an awareness of its brevity that she took the tiniest bites…in this way Madeleine decided to leave some for later and told Leonard she had to go home.” The Marriage Plot, Jeffrey Eugenides
