“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”

– Anaïs Nin

“Please believe that things are good with me, and even when they’re not, they will be soon enough. And i will always believe the same about you.”

– Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”

– Paulo Coelho, The Devil and Miss Prym
