"And yet all loneliness, angers, hatreds, envies, and itchings that it contains, if rolled into one single experience and put into the scale against the least moment of the joy that is felt by the least in Heaven, would have no weight that could be registered at all. Bad cannot succeed even in being bad as truly as good is good."
The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis
"Things to do today:
1) Breathe in.
2) Breathe out."
It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
"he was so caught up in being in love that he didn’t really take the time to think about what he was in love with."

"I don’t know if it be a peculiarity in me, but I am seldom otherwise than happy while watching in the chamber of death, should no frenzied or despairing mourner share the duty with me. I see a repose that neither earth nor hell can break; and I feel an assurance of the endless and shadowless hereafter - duration, and love in its sympathy, and joy in its fulness."
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
"If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling

"I’ve dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they’ve gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind."
Catherine // Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
"O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?"

But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
And filter and fibre your blood."
