“The pleasure of all reading is doubled when one lives with another who shares the same books.”

“Truth only means something when it’s hard to admit.”

– Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song

“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being “in love”, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”

– Louis de Bernières, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that
something else is more important than fear.”

“Remember if people talk behind your back, it only means you are two steps ahead.”

– Fannie Flagg, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

“Always do what is right. It will gratify half of mankind and astound the other.”

“Bran thought about it. ‘Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?’
‘That is the only time a man can be brave,’ his father told him.”

– George R.R. Martin

“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

– Plato

“Because you can’t argue with all the fools in the world. It’s easier to let them have their way, then trick them when they’re not paying attention.”

– Christopher Paolini

“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?”

– Oscar Wilde
