Ai Yazawa
I wanted to have a good relationship. One that's romantic and dramatic, like in the movies. But I finally became a woman at 17 and learned that men aren't really that simple.
Alice Hoffman
Don't make me sit through reality.
Amaka Imani Nkosazana
You push the TRUTH off a cliff, but it will always fly. You can submerge the TRUTH under water, but it will not drown. You can place the TRUTH in the fire, but it will survive. You can bury the TRUTH beneath the ground, but it will arise. TRUTH always prevails!

The one thing I do remember is that as I retraced my steps through all the familiar streets of my life, Inow felt completely lost.
Chris Dee
The principles of storytelling do not change. Going home. Coming of age. Sin and redemption. The hero. The journey, The power of love. They are hardwired into us, just like our taste buds process sweet, sour, bitter, and salt. Can a new voice come up with something startling and creative and unprecedented? Absolutely. Can they invent a fifth taste? No. No, they can't. Can they make it so we don't like sweet anymore? No, no they can't.

Do you ever wear leather? the guy asks.What?Leather. Do you like leather?It doesn't exactly wipe me out.I like to see boys in leather.I look at him cool. Okay, I say, what is it you want and how much are you willing to pay for it?I've got a leather jacket upstairs...Would you put it on?Just put it on?I'll go and get it.He leaves the horror hole and returns a few minutes later holding a leather flying jacket with a lambswool collar. There are tears in the jacket's sleeves, and the lambswool is yellow with age. John Wayne could've worn it in one of those crappy war films he made. Put it on, the guy says.I give him a spiky smile and put on the jacket. Okay, where's the plane, and what time's take-off?Drop your jeans and turn around.
Erica Sehyun Song
I took my friend's hand as she helped me up. With our hands still linked and our flower crowns tangled in our hair, we danced, laughing with joy, through the rain and towards the school, the lightning showing us our path with its powerful light.
Erica Sehyun Song
The rain landed on my skin with a barely audible patter and changed the tempo of its repetitive dance, letting the wind change its course and angle. The cold soon seeped through my dress and into my bones. An iris from my garland fell in my lap.
Erica Sehyun Song
Oscar always said that books are truly our best friends. He said that they never think poorly of us and that they always have a shoulder for us to cry on or relieve stress. They take our minds away from the real world by telling us captivating stories. When we look back at our choice of books, we can nostalgically recall our younger years.
Erica Sehyun Song
There was a sudden flash of lightning which brightly illuminated our faces. I squinted against the harsh light. It was soon followed by the crack of thunder. The strong wind whipped our hair around our faces, and the younger girls squealed as they quickly ran across the grass to get inside the school. Rose and I sat up, smiles on our faces as we listened to the weather's dangerous melody. The third flash of lightning finally ripped open the sky's belly. Freezing rain cascaded out, drenching us in a matter of seconds, the flower garlands drooping and lying limp on our matted hair.
Erica Sehyun Song
The two of us locked up our own little secrets from the real world. We had experienced countless sleepless nights when we would share our fears, our worries, and our passions; when we would gossip about the school and the other girls. We had played too many pranks and snuck out more than enough times to be expelled if the teachers ever found out. We were professionals at the art of being discreet; however, we had never found sneaking out of a residence necessary, especially when the reason was not to play a prank.
Erica Sehyun Song
My wishing star glowed slightly and winked back at me. I could almost hear its voice, tinkling like wind chimes and church bells, reassuring me that everything would return to normal.
Erica Sehyun Song
Making friends is not a big deal. Replacing me with them after talking to them for only one bloody day is a big deal.

@mink: Well, you're in luck, if you pick another movie. My hair is clean, I usually eat dinner around eight, and I'm currently single. Not that it matters.

Jennifer Elisabeth
I'm going to follow this invisible red thread until I find myself again… until I finally figure out… who I'm meant to be.
Jennifer Elisabeth
I look out into the water and up deep into the stars. I beg the sparkling lanterns of light to cure me of myself
Jennifer Elisabeth
I really believe that there is an invisible red thread tied between him and me, and that it has stretched and tangled for years
Jennifer Elisabeth
I could watch him do this until morning
Jennifer Elisabeth
Please… Whoever you are, whatever you are… I believe in you even though I don't completely understand you. I feel you around me even though I can't exactly describe what I'm feeling.

Don't worry if people think you're crazy. You are crazy. You have that kind of intoxicating insanity that lets other people dream outside of the lines and become who they're destined to be.

Does our purpose on Earth directly link to the people whom we end up meeting? Are our relationships and experiences actually the required dots that connect and then lead us to our ultimate destinies?

Jennifer Elisabeth
For so many years, I couldn't understand why every time I thought that someone finally loved me, like… for real, they would eventually turn to vapor. Every person whom I've ever loved is trapped inside of my chest. I've breathed all of them in so deeply that I've nearly choked and died on every soul that I've ever given myself to.
Jennifer Elisabeth
I've always seen this in you, ever since you were a little girl
Jennifer Elisabeth
I just want your voice aimed at me again. I want to absorb the direction of your eyes…
Jennifer Elisabeth

I fantasize the night sky to be like a cosmic blue print of my life as I close my eyes and unbutton my heart…. just in case anyone up there is listening.

I feel a resurgence of my 6-year-old self… that little warrior, goddess of a girl reminding me of who I was when I was little, before the world got its hands on me.

I want to be the best version of myself for anyone who is going to someday walk into my life and need someone to love them beyond reason.

I can do this… I can start over. I can save my own life and I'm never going to be alone as long as I have stars to wish on and people to still love.

Your personal truth is your gift to the world.
Jennifer Elisabeth
I've grown up defined by this desperate, undeniable, 'can't breathe' kind of space inside of myself and I'm afraid that the diagnosis is fatal.

Jennifer Elisabeth
I know that this process of 'me changing my life' doesn't just end once I set fire to this list of things I hate about myself. Tonight isn't as much of a new beginning as it is a violent end and I know the real work hasn't even started yet.

Let this time in your life cut you open and drain all of the things that are holding you back. I'm going to help you forgive the things that you won't let yourself forget.

I love him in ways that I can't explain to other people. They don't understand… it's not their fault.
Jennifer Elisabeth
I want you to trust yourself, baby. Love is all that matters and you've always known that. You've known, since you were a very little girl, what your life is meant to be about…
Jennifer Elisabeth
Something, somewhere, knows what's best for me and promises to keep sending me people and experiences to light my way as long as I live in gratitude and keep paying attention to the signs.

Resting on the roots of this old oak I lean back against his knotted trunk, shine my granny smith on my sleeve And ponder the days…
Kimberly Willis Holt
Zachary smiles, and I wonder if he's felling different. Because standing out here waist deep in Gossimer Lake, next to my best friend, I'm feeling different-light and good and maybe even holy.
Kimberly Willis Holt
And in this moment, I realize one reason it's so great to have a best friend is sometimes, like right now, Cal and I are thinking the very same thing.
Kimberly Willis Holt
It seems like our town has closed down these days leading up to the funeral. Old people still sit on their porches and talk, but their conversations aren't sprinkled with laughter anymore. Since the new, little kids haven't played outside, as if their moms are afraid someone might snatch them out of their yards and send them off to war.

The Mozart sonata Dad picked out begins to play. When we hear the first note, we open the sacks and the ladybugs escape through the opening, taking flight. It's as if someone has dumped rubies from heaven. Soon they will land on the plants in search of bollworm eggs. But right now they are magic-red ribbons flying over our heads, weaving against the pink sky, dancing up there with Mozart.
Lance Olsen
Everything changes, sweetheart. The universe loves to happen.

Lorene Cary
I had not expected the gentle, tentative surge of gratitude I began to feel...for St. Paul's School, the spring, and the early morning. I needed the morning light and the warbling birds. I needed to find a way to live in this place for a moment and get the good of it. I had tried to hold myself apart, and the aloneness proved more terrible than what I had tried to escape.
Louisa May Alcott
I rather miss my wild girl; but if I get a strong, helpful, tender-hearted woman in her place, I shall feel quite satisfied.
Priya Ardis
Do you think we can be friends? I asked.He stared up at the ceiling. Probably not, but we can pretend.
Priya Ardis
I noticed him right away. No, it wasn't his lean, rugged face. Or the dark waves of shiny hair that hung just a little too long on his forehead. It wasn't the slim, collarless biker jacket he wore, hugging his lean shoulders. It was the way he stood. The confident way he waited in the cafeteria line to get a slice of pizza. He didn't saunter. He didn't amble. He stood at the center, and let the other people buzz around him. His stance was straight and sure.
Priya Ardis
Vane grabbed me. DuLac, let's chat.Chat. British-speak for Stand still while I yell at you.
Priya Ardis
Rough palms cradled my face while my fingers gripped the pillow on either side of his. Lips, teeth, tongue, mingled together. I ate him up and didn't let go until I had to come up for air.
Priya Ardis
Vane's lips tightened to suppress a smile. Why so hostile, love?You whacked me on the head with a ball!You deserved it.
Priya Ardis
I caught his hand. What do you want me to do?Leaning down, he kissed the pulse beating on my neck just above the damaged skin. Tomorrow, I need you to die.
Priya Ardis
Matt was almost completely naked. A tattered loincloth and an ugly chain with a yellow diamond were his only apparel.
Priya Ardis
He'd used the amulet to read my thoughts again. I pictured smacking him in the face.

To prove to [her friend, Swedish diplomat Count] Gyllenborg that she was not superficial, Catherine composed an essay about herself, so that he would see whether I knew myself or not. The next day, she wrote and handed to Gyllenborg an essay titled 'Portrait of a Fifteen-Year-Old Philosopher.' He was impressed and returned it with a dozen pages of comments, mostly favorable. I read his remarks again and again, many times [Catherine later recalled in her memoirs]. I impressed them on my consciousness and resolved to follow his advice. In addition, there was something else surprising: one day, while conversing with me, he allowed the following sentence to slip out: 'What a pity that you will marry! I wanted to find out what he meant, but he would not tell me.

High school will probably be better. I mean, some kids will still be jerks, but it's not so bad if you have at least one good friend. Someone who gets you.
Roger Lemelin
On est forcé d'être des enfants toute sa vie. C'est pour ça que ceux qui veulent devenir des hommes sont malheureux. Vous voulez chanter l'opéra? On rit de vous. Vous voulez vous conduire en monsieur avec les femmes? Elles vous traitent de tapette si vous n'êtes pas champion avec des muscles gros comme ça. Vous voulez avoir une bonne position dans un bureau? La compétence, c'est toujours les autres qui l'ont.

Never did the world make a queen of a girl who hides in houses and dreams without traveling.

Little Joe was still behind him. Eli could feel it. He wanted to look back, but he couldn't. The tears were too close. If he were Fancy, he'd turn around and kick and buck and moo and do just about anything to keep his calf near. But Eli wasn't Fancy; he was a farmer.

My mom says . . . there are bad people who hurt others for fun . . . and there are good people who do it by accident. Like, they make a mistake? I think you're a good person.
Toni Morrison
Women did what strawberry plants did before they shot out their thin vines: the quality of the green changed. Then the vine threads came, then the buds. By the time the white petals died and the mint-colored berry poked out, the leaf shine was gilded tight and waxy.
