“All the natural movements of the soul are controlled by laws analogous to those of physical gravity. Grace is the only exception.

“Fold your arms round me close and strain me so that our hearts may break and our souls go free at last. Take me to that happy place of which you told me long ago. The fields whence none return, but where great singers sing their songs forever.”
“Men were put into the world to teach women the law of compromise.”
“I look out into the water and up deep into the stars. I beg the sparkling lanterns of light to cure me of myself — my past and the kaleidoscope of mistakes, failures and wrong turns that have stacked unbearable regret upon my shoulders.”
“Here’s to alcohol, the rose colored glasses of life.”
“Always do what you’re afraid to do.
I will prove myself strong when they think I am sick.
I will prove myself brave when they think I am weak.”
