"She had a mind like a box of fireworks and hands that played recklessly with matches"
"She’s the girl ablaze;
Her kiss burns like whiskey,
Her touch trails fire,
Her eyes burn brighter than city light
She’s the girl ablaze;
Who flames like the sun,
The moon and stars
She will ignite"
"Children’s and YA books are about being brave and kind, about learning wisdom and love, about that journey into and through maturity that we all keep starting, and starting again, no matter how old we get. I think that’s why so many adults read YA: we’re never done coming of age."
"Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices the money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future. He lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."
— The Dalai Lama (when asked about what surprises him most about humanity)
"But don’t forget who you really are. And I’m not talking about your so-called real name. All names are made up by someone else, even the one your parents gave you. You know who you really are. When you’re alone at night, looking up at the stars, or maybe lying in your bed in total darkness, you know that nameless person inside you."

"I don’t want to be
the other half of your soul.
I want to be the one
who reminds you
that you’re already whole."
Nature. The ultimate stress cure.
