I'm not going to do it again, Lena Marquez whispered to the red purse across the hall from her nestle of blankets. Never again.
Abbi Glines
Please. Forgive me. One more chance, Blaire. I want this. I want you.
Abbi Glines
You naked in my bed is even more unbelievably beautiful than I thought it would be... and trust me I've thought about it. A lot.
Abbi Glines
I had fallen too far. I was in love with Rush Finlay.

Why didn't you let me die? You could have finally been free.I gave up trying to imagine a world without you. - Essallie & Kayden
Amanda Grace
But even when I stop crying, even when we fall asleep and I'm nestled in his arms, this will leave another scar. No one will see it. No one will know. But it will be there. And eventually all of the scars will have scars, and that's all I'll be--one big scar of a love gone wrong.
Amy Engel
I don't understand how the pain of losing him can be a pale shadow in comparison to the pain of finding him again.
Ann Marie Frohoff
Creativity is the catalyst to the future.
Ashley Earley
Night has settled over Paris.The streets have cleared of the crowds, and the city has been lit up. I set my book down, deciding to go for a walk. The Eiffel Tower is only a few blocks away. Now that there aren't many people out, I can walk there without having to fight my way through mobs of gawking tourists.
Ashley Earley
I head in the direction of the Eiffel Tower when I exit the alley, relieved to be out of the dark.
Ashley Earley
He drinks his coffee tentatively, glancing at me every few seconds, watching me. Every time he glances in my direction, I quickly turn away though he obviously knows I'm watching him. I know he's wondering why I'm staring at him, but he doesn't ask.I finally take a sip of coffee, set the mug back on the table, and voice what's on my mind, I want to draw you.
Ashley Earley
He stares at me
Ashley Earley
I take in all the colorful locks that line the bridge. Each one told a story. Each lock represented a relationship that was once special, whether it ended or turned into true happiness. The locks represented a past, present, and a possible future.
Ashley Earley
The hours tick by as I lie in bed.Memories keep surfacing, tormenting me into unbelievable sadness. I can't bring myself to move. I can't fight the memories that keep filling my thoughts. I stay curled in the fetal position as each memory plays out. I can't stop them from coming. I can't make them go away. Nothing can distract me. I can't block the memories, so they continue to come.
Ashley Earley
Every gesture and every look he gives me takes me by surprise and causes my heart to stutter.
Ashley Earley
I grab the nearest lamppost when my knees threaten to give out, panting for breath as the words rip through me
Ashley Earley
I'm being pulled under - father and farther from the surface. My lungs continue to scream for air. Panic is building inside me, threatening to combust. I can't break free.Help! I can't break free!I open my mouth to scream.
Ashley Earley
When we step onto the bridge, Nathan turns and spreads his arms out wide. 'Welcome to Pont des Arts, a.k.a. The Lock Bridge.
Ashley Earley
One of his hands move away from my face to flatten against my back, pulling me closer to him as he deepens the kiss. He parts my lips under his as my mind seems to sign quietly in content. I kiss him back as fiercely as he kisses me, unable to control the infatuation that rushes through me - feeling almost like fireworks. Not so careful anymore.Little shivers of urgency shoot through me. I push off the window, pressing closer to him. The rush of sensation that is coursing through me feels like I've drunk a gallon of coffee. It feels like an electric buzz is flooding between us.
Ashley Earley
The boy took my sketchbook.
Aya Ling
She says affection is all very well being imagined, like a romantic fancy, but marriage should be based on practical purposes in order to last longer.

There are much more important qualities to have than a docile disposition.
Cameo Renae
Hell had frozen over and I was lost in its endless labyrinth.
Cameo Renae
This is what people were looking at all day? How embarrassing! I looked like Quasimodo! My guests were exceptional actors.
Caroline George
If a boy can manage to have coffee with me during the apocalypse, I know he cares. There's not a speck of doubt in my mind. He must care.
Caroline George
I'd rather not know what lies ahead because I like the dark. I like thinking there is something good in the places I can't see. And that's not ignorance. That's just hope.
Caroline George
The truth is crazier than lies because lies are required to stick to possibilities
Caroline George
After the end of the world, there is a world. Life doesn't stop. It changes. And it changes me.
Caroline George
When you find a truth that surpasses your desire to fit trends and meet approval, you can be certain it's worth fighting to spread.
Caroline George
People have always expected the end of the world to be a dramatic, thematic event: war, disease, a sudden explosion. But what if the end of the world has already occurred? What if our final demise happened slowly, secretly … and we've been oblivious to it all?
Caroline Leech
I am German, yes, but I am not a Nazi. There is a difference, and one day I hope you understand that.
Chelsie Shakespeare
The longer I lived, the longer it would be until I saw him alive again, until I could taste his new lips and run my fingers through his new hair. We could be young and beautiful again . . .
Chelsie Shakespeare
He would reach for me in the middle of the night, nearly every single night, wrapping one of those solid arms around my waist and pulling me in close. So. Close.
Chelsie Shakespeare
He made me feel unhinged . . . like he could take me apart and put me back together again and again.
Chelsie Shakespeare
I don't think that science and the paranormal have to be at war; in fact, it's crucial that they work together. It seems naïve to believe that the world is exactly as it seems.
Chelsie Shakespeare
When we can't understand the science behind something in this world, we make up mythological entities that we can relate to. We personify the forces of nature that mystify us, using our boundless imaginations to comfort us and make us feel like we have some control over these things that are much bigger than we are.
Christopher Paolini
Who is it who decides that one man should live and another should die? My life wasn't worth any more than his, but he's the one who's buried, while I get to enjoy at least a few more hours above the ground. Is it chance, random and cruel, or is there some purpose or pattern to all this, even if it lies beyond our ken?
Cynthia Leitich Smith
I may be heaven-sent, but I'm not perfect.
Daniel Amory
I remember when I was twenty-five, he said. No client comes to you when you're twenty-five. It's like when you are looking for a doctor. You don't want the new one that just graduated. You don't want the very old one, the one shaking, the one twenty years past his prime. You want the seasoned one who has done it so many times he can do it in his sleep though. Same thing with attorneys.
Daniel Amory
I don't think I've ever referred to any girl I dated as my girlfriend. I think that would freak me out. Even the girl that I dated for two years in college I don't think I ever referred to her as my girlfriend.How would you introduce her? I asked.I'm just going to say her name, he said.
Daniel Amory
One of the professors told me last week that he feels bad teaching with the way the economy is now. 'What's the point?' he said. 'Kids aren't getting jobs.' You never hear faculty talk that way. He did.
Daniel Amory
Look, girls know when they're cute, he said. You don't have to tell them. All they need to do is look in the mirror. I have one friend out in New York, an attorney. She moved out there after the school year to take the bar. She doesn't have a job. I was like, 'How are you going to get a job there in this market?' And she's like, 'I'll wink and I'll smile.' She's a pretty girl. Whether that works despite her poor grades is yet to be seen.
David Housholder
And once you've been to this Center, this Truth, you'll know your way everywhere. You are never lost again.
David Levithan
Saving others is always more important than saving yourself. It has to be, or none of us would do any good.
Dean Hughes
It struck Yuki as almost comic that humans drew lines on the globe, and on both sides of those lines raised up armies. Then they fought and died to take possession of...what? Hills. Yuki knew he had to fight, and had to win, but that didn't make war anything to be proud of.
Derek Landy
Gordon Edgley's sudden death came as a shock to everyone - not least himself. One moment he was in his study, seven words into the twenty-fifth sentence of the final chapter of his new book, And the Darkness Rained upon Them, and the next he was dead. A tragic loss, his mind echoed numbly as he slipped away.
Destinee Hardwick
I didn't want to be the woman who gave herself over willingly to the first man to notice her. I didn't want to be the stupid girl in every novel who loved without question and entered relationships that didn't make sense.
Diana Wynne Jones
I feel ill, [Howl] announced. I'm going to bed, where I may die.
Diane J. Reed
This is my heart on CRACK. Robin when she sees Creek
E. Katherine Kottaras
If I listen to my heart, if I trust in that voice that sits deep in my soul, that untouched being of truth - I know it's there - I will discover the answers eventually. Maybe not immediately. Maybe not tomorrow. But if I don't open myself to possibility, I'll never know what it means to have lived. I'll never know what it means to have loved.
E.J. Stevens
I'm trying to decide whether to tell you two to get a room or go barf in the trash can, Emma said. I'm leaning toward the second choice. You are both getting way too weird. And gross.Cal barked out a laugh and slid his fingers down my arm to entwine with mine. His touch, and Emma's comments, only made me blush more. Looks like Emma saw Cal lick my face after all. Now that wasn't awkward or anything.
E.J. Stevens
So it's fate then? I asked with him so close my lips brushed the line of his jaw with each word, Us being together?Absolutely, Calvin said with a low growl. Then he lifted my chin, tilting my head back, and kissed me deeply.Who was I to argue with Fate?
Elana K. Arnold
It's not new, our valuation of young female people for how they can serve, satisfy, and satiate. Our girls are both the platter and the meal, and we eat them up--we eat their meat, we lap up their sweetness, we covet and control and consume.
Elizabeth Scott
There are a million rules for being a girl. There are a million things you have to do to get through each day. High school has things that can trip you up, ruin you, people say one thing and mean another, and you have to know all the rules, you have to know what you can and can't do.
Elizabeth Scott
I didn't want it to be one good memory that led to a lot of bad ones. I wanted it to stay what it was, one amazing moment, something that was strong and sweet enough to stand on its own. Something I could remember without any pain. - Kate
Eric Bishop-Potter
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
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
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
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
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
Making friends is not a big deal. Replacing me with them after talking to them for only one bloody day is a big deal.
Erin Fletcher
Missing this interview? It's not the end of the world. It is the beginning.
Germaine Greer
You're only young once, but you can be immature forever
Gwenn Wright
My life is hard. No one would rob me of that. The clothes I am wearing came out of a knotted up black plastic trash bag from a resale shop downtown. And not the downtown where shiny cars wink at you in the sunlight. If a car winks at you in this area it's being driven by a person you would be best to avoid. My side of downtown is crumbling and skirted by chain link fences.--Rocky Evans
Gwenn Wright
Kevin looks at me and I know he isn't seeing the little girl I use to be, all pigtails and gangly limbs. He isn't seeing my mother's daughter or even my mother anymore. As his eyes linger over me, stopping here and there in the most uncomfortable places, I know he isn't really even seeing me as I am. The bloodshot eyes staring out of the alcohol-flushed face are seeing a girl, nearly of age, who owes him a tremendous debt of gratitude.--Rocky Evans
Gwenn Wright
Katherine stared intently at the cold, hard steel. She knew it would be loaded and that, if need be, there was extra ammunition in the back of the drawer. She would not be one of those girls, the ones who sit idly by and wait for the answers to come to them.
Gwenn Wright
Maybe love, unfathomable love, was too much for people, so they had traded it for something easier.
Hailey Abbott
If you love someone, why would you want that person to change?
Hailey Abbott
David,you're my true love, why did we wait so long to get together? I don't care what the world says. Let's defy them all, my darling.- Maddy
Hailey Abbott
Never let a boy know you're crazy about him. He'll lose interest, and then you'll be a loser.
Hayden Thorne
I'm sure the other kids wouldn't mind not being lectured by another toddler over the virtues of sharing and the mental benefits of toy blocks.
Hayden Thorne
Look, if I were straight, you'd be grandparents before your time. You should be relieved that I'm gay. Aren't you grateful?
Heather Jensen
Then his lips were on mine and I lost myself, overwhelmed by the surge of Trey's emotions as they flooded through me. I kissed him back wanting to forget my fear of being discovered of putting him in danger and focus only on how good it felt being in his arms. After all relinquishing some control was a sacrifice worth making if it meant I could continue to live in this fantasy with Trey. But the dreaded tingling in my teeth started up again and I reluctantly pulled away.
Heather Jensen
I wanted to apologize but what could I say? I'm sorry but I'm afraid my fangs might freak you out. Oh and by the way my eyes sort of glow in the dark when I get excited. I hope you're cool with that.
Huntley Fitzpatrick
When I turn back to Jase, he's again beaming at me. You're nice. He sounds pleased, as if he hadn't expected this aspect of my personality.
Huntley Fitzpatrick
No bikinis on a first date. He nods. I'm sure that's a rule. Or should be. For my sisters anyway.
Huntley Fitzpatrick
This is Sailor Supergirl, George says. She knows all about black holes.
Huntley Fitzpatrick
Right. Because if you have trouble putting ketchup and mustard on a hot dog, you should totally move on to saving lives.
Huntley Fitzpatrick
Jase props himself up on an elbow, looking at me for a minute without saying anything. His face gets an unreadable expression, and I wish I could take back walking over.Then he observes, I'm guessing that's a uniform.Crap. I'd forgotten I was still wearing it.
Huntley Fitzpatrick
I guess I like things that take time and attention. More worthwhile that way.
Imaj

Education is a system designed to make you feel inferior, yet they encourage you to accept it in order to be superior
J. Sterling
Sometimes letting go is the only way to find out who you're meant to hold on to.
J.D. Salinger
The more expensive a school is, the more crooks it has
Jackson Pearce
I wanted to know what it was like to be a drug addict, and have an eating disorder, and have a loved one die, and fall in love. I saw my friends going through these things, I saw the world going through these things, and I needed to understand them. I needed to make sense of them. Books didn't make me wallow in darkness, darkness made me wallow in books, and it was books that showed me there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Jamie McGuire
Time will make it worse! You're...the other half of his soul. He's never going to get over you. And no matter how much you hope that you will... you'll never get over him. You're going to wake up one day and realize what you've done, and you're going to regret the time you wasted apart from him for the rest of your life.

Jenn Bennett
@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.
Jenna-Lynne Duncan
Damn. I never should have agreed to this. What is he thinking? Here we are in a piece of crap pickup truck on our way to sit outside of a supermarket to kidnap this girl. Damn. He'd better not be falling for her. Sure she's cute, but I can't think about that.
Jennifer Donnelly
And then I remember this morning and I wonder if it really happened or if I dreamed it. It was nice. And weird. And tender. I'm not used to tender. It's a fossil, that word. Conditions changed and it died out. Like the woolly mammoth. It just couldn't live in the same world as dick box. Ho dog. Or wiener cousins.
Jennifer E. Smith
But it was different, somehow, to be reading it here, where the actual events had taken place all those hundreds of thousands of years ago. That was the thing about books, she was realizing; they could take you somewhere else entirely, it was true. But it wasn't the same thing as actually going there yourself.
Jennifer Elisabeth
This is your life
Jennifer Elisabeth
I never want you to deny anything about yourself because you have grown up thinking it's unacceptable or inconvenient for the people around you.
Jennifer Elisabeth
Can you identify the source preventing you from feeling good every single day, from loving yourself unconditionally and making your dreams come true? Is it a voice in your head or a gut wrenching ache that compromises your inner peace and doesn't allow you to accept the love around you? Is there one thing, or maybe many things, keeping you from forgiving your past and moving forward, tormenting you with lies like You don't deserve real love so just settle for whatever you can get, You're not smart enough to achieve your dream so don't even try, or Look at your past… you should hate yourself way more than you actually do!?Welcome to your Little Monster.
Jennifer Elisabeth
Starting over can be the scariest thing in the entire world, whether it's leaving a lover, a school, a team, a friend or anything else that feels like a core part of our identity but when your gut is telling you that something here isn't right or feels unsafe, I really want you to listen and trust in that voice.
Jennifer Elisabeth
Even if we try to conform to ideals and strive for perfection, we will always be pulled back to our core identity because it's the path of least resistance for our souls
Jennifer Elisabeth
Being a Dream Girl is never going to be about what you look like or how much you weigh. After all, our physical appearances are just reflections of our inner worlds. What makes you a Dream Girl is your emotional sensitivity, your self-awareness, and your ability to communicate who you are effectively and compassionately in the world.
Jenny Rosen

For the record, I would like to point out that it is NOT being obsessive to memorize a boy's schedule so that you can accidentally bump into him. It is called being efficient.
Jill S. Alexander
Do the thing you love to do. Hank Williams died at the ripe old age of twentynine. Stevie Ray Vaughan at thirty-five. Jesus at thirtythree. Don't think you're special and the Lord's gonna bless you with time.

Isn't that what true romance is supposed to be about? Finding the person who's your soul mate. Someone you dream about at night.Someone whose name is on your lips when you wake up in the morning.

Katie McGarry
Smiled. The type of smile that men drive all night in a blinding rainstorm on their bike to see. The type of smile that keep men fighting brutal wars for years in the vain of hope of seeing it again. The type of smile that made me come to my feet, because if i didn't, I'd fall to my knees.
Katie McGarry
Call Stella 'Trash Can Girl' again and I'll beat the h--- out of you. In fact, call her or anyone else anything ever again and I'll do the same. I'm done saying nothing. I'm done letting you treat people like crap. Do you hear me?
Katie McGarry
Thank you Jonah. He lowers his head at the break in my voice. I ignore the moisture in his eyes and pretend that mine don't sting. For what? he whispers. For showing me that people can change. Even if it is one person out of a million.
Kea Alwang
So is this being in love? I stay with the moment, waiting to find out, the space between us fluctuating with uncertainty. The only thing I am sure of is that each time his lips leave mine they are right back again.
Kelley Armstrong
You were just worried about me. An exhale, relieved that I had understood. YeahI turned. Because you think I'm worth itHe put his fingers under my chin. I absolutely think your worth it.But you don't think you are.His mouth opened. Shut.That's what this is about, Derek. You won't let us worry about you because you don't think you're worth it. But I do. I absolutely do.
Kellie Thacker
Is it possible to love someone so completely, so intensely, they could never die? To give them more than just your heart or your soul? What if you could give then the miracle of immortality?
Laini Taylor
Happiness. It was the place where passion, with all its dazzle and drumbeat, met something softer: homecoming and safety and pure sunbeam comfort. It was all those things, intertwined with the heat and the thrill, and it was as bright within her as a swallowed star.
Lani Wendt Young
Excuse me? You're the one who was out to mislead me with your alluring bimbo slinkiness! What if I had believed your act last night? What if I had fallen deeply and madly in love with you? You would have had the blood of my love-sickness on your hands, Leila Folger.
Lani Wendt Young
You will be the one chosen to reach out to embrace man once again as the heart. So that all will be as it should. 'Fatu-ma-le-ele-ele' You will give your fire so that Man may live. And he will give his heart so that earth may live.Thus it has been spoken.
Lani Wendt Young
Yes, I'm Daniel Tahi. I know what your lips taste like.I know you roll your eyes when you think someone is an idiot. I know that you wish you were six inches shorter because you hate being taller than most of the boys you've ever met. Your name is tattooed across my chest and written on my heart.You are a fire daughter of earth, fanua afi and I am vasa loloa,son of the ocean. I am yours...And you can't even remember who I am.

Lauren Barnholdt
Because she left him a MySpace message that was semi-flirty, and then today he was very vague about what he was doing. So I headed over to his house and waited outside until he left. And now he's at McDonald's, and I'm following him to see where else he's going. MySpace is seriously going to be responsible for everyone losing their minds.

Lia Habel
Returning my voice to a conversational level, I called back, Nora, I'm notattempting to embarrass you or single you out. I know you're capable. But stay behind Chas, okay? You die, you d i e permanently, and for various reasons that we've already gotten angsty about together, I don't want that to happen.Okay, okay, she sighed.Angsty? Chas asked. Ooh! Later, details!Yes, later. With that, I waved the team forward.
Lisa Brown Roberts
With you, it's... I don't even know how to say it. It's like you're a work of art. Every time I'm with you, I see something new. Something beautiful.
Lucy Swing
I didn't pretend to comprehend what he meant. I simply closed my eyes and let his arms wrap around me. The warmth that came from his body made me feel at home, as if, somehow, this is where I belonged. He smelled of woods after a thunderstorm, clean and elemental.
Lukasz Laniecki
Mistakes are part of life. And yet, for some reason, most parents in this world, wish their children made no mistakes at all, or as little as possible.
Lukasz Laniecki
Pushing them (children) into a career that is practical/ safe/ prestigious/ well-paying doesn't count as help. It's how parents satisfy their own needs.
Lukasz Laniecki
It's entirely on our children to build their best futures. Not on us, parents. And we should be imprinting this message on our children's brains from as early as possible.
M.G. Wells
Small Acts of Kindness are Priceless
Magan Vernon
I'm falling in love with you. As the words left his mouth, his lips pressed to mine, giving me the most intense and explosive kiss I had ever had. With the coldness of his lips and the warmth of his tongue beneath mine I saw fireworks and felt them through every part of my body.
Maggie Stiefvater
I stare at him. You can't risk not winning. Not because of me. Sean doesn't lift his eyes from the counter. We make our move when you make yours. You on the inside, me on the outside. Corr can come from the middle of the pack; he's done it before. It's one side you won't have to worry about. I say, I will not be your weakness, Sean Kendrick. Now he looks at me. He says, very softly, It's late for that, Puck.

Accidents happen. Our bones shatter, our skin splits, our hearts break. We burn, we drown, we stay alive.

I believe with all my heart, that Magnus is a worthy and superior successor to your current king. Therefore, I ask today that you reject Gaius Damora as your leader and take Prince Magnus as your new king. He will right the wrongs that have overtaken Mytica. And he will make Gaius Damora pay for all he has destroyed.
Morgan Rhodes
But I want you to know, Cleo continued, that there is hope. And that I am living proof of that hope. Because, even though I was forced into this marriage against my will, I have come to know Prince Magnus Lukas Damora very well these last months. And one thing I've learned is that Prince Magnus is nothing like his father. Prince Magnus is brave and compassionate, and he truly wants what's just and best for this kingdom. Kindness is what makes a good king who will put the needs and rights of his people before his own desires.
Neil Gaiman
Each of the dancers took a partner, the living with the dead, each to each. Bod reached out his hand and found himself touching fingers with, and gazing into the grey eyes of, the lady in the cobweb dress. She smiled at him.Hello, Bod, she said.Hello, he said, as he danced with her. I don't know your name.Names aren't really important, she said.I love your horse. He's so big! I never knew horses could be that big.He is gentle enough to bear the mightiest of you away on his broad back, and strong enough for the smallest of you as well.Can I ride him? asked Bod.One day, she told him, and her cobweb skirts shimmered. One day. Everybody does.Promise?I promise.

And to think of all the colors in the world, blood chose to be red.
Nely Cab
Careful, he smiled, I'm lethal.

Give me agony or give me death,I'll take thy heart as eternal breath
Nicola Yoon
From so high above it, the world seems ordered and deliberate.But I know it's more than that. And less. It is structured and chaotic. Beautiful and strange.

Life is a gift. Don't forget to live it.

When You Live Life Too Early, You Learn Life Too Late.
P.C. Cast
Because you are the superhero fledgling. I'm just your more attractive sidekick. Oh, and the herd of nerds are your dorky minions.
Pete Hautman
We connect through our dreams. Like we could be a thousand miles apart and I'd still know you were there.
Philip Pullman
When you look at what C.S. Lewis is saying, his message is so anti-life, so cruel, so unjust. The view that the Narnia books have for the material world is one of almost undisguised contempt. At one point, the old professor says, 'It's all in Plato'

I'm trying to undermine the basis of Christian belief... I'm not in the business of offending people. I find the books upholding certain values that I think are important, such as life is immensely valuable and this world is an extraordinarily beautiful place. We should do what we can to increase the amount of wisdom in the world.[Washington Post interview, 19 February 2001]
Pixie Lynn Whitfield
The house was the color of baby vomit.
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
Matt was almost completely naked. A tattered loincloth and an ugly chain with a yellow diamond were his only apparel.
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
He'd used the amulet to read my thoughts again. I pictured smacking him in the face.
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.
Rachel E. Carter
Three. I had just made my first, second, and third kill. Before I had even obtained my mage's robes. I bent over and vomited into the grass. There was no pride, no justice, just the appalling sense that I had lost my innocence. That I was a monster.
Rachel E. Carter
I told you not to trust a wolf, he continued. His words dripped like honeyed venom. Because it would only ever want to break you. Darren let out a small, harsh laugh. Haven't you figured it out yet? I'm the wolf, Ryiah. I guess what I really should have told you was to never trust a prince, but that's not quite as memorable.
Rachel E. Carter
We couldn't be friends. We couldn't be enemies.So what were we?
Rachel E. Carter
I know exactly who you are. I took a step forward, and another, until I was standing right in front of him. Then my words turned to ice. You are the selfish, spineless son of a king who is too afraid to be his own man. You would rather hide behind your status than fight for something that could actually mean something. There, that felt good. And it's a shame, really it is, because, according to you, I was the one true friend you had.
