“There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.”

– John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“These woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”

– Robert Frost

“It’s really a wonder that I haven’t dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”

– Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

“The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!”

– Jane Austen, Sense And Sensibility

“If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”

– Albert Einstein

“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

– George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

– F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”

– Albert Camus

“I might be in love with you.” He smiles a little. “I’m waiting until I’m sure to tell you, though.”

– Veronica Roth, Divergent
