“It’s a funny thing… but people mostly have it backward. They think they live by what they want. But really, what guides them is what they’re afraid of. What they don’t want.”
“My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn’t go as planned, and that’s okay.”
“Your only problem, perhaps, is that you scream without letting yourself cry.”
“People grow apart, and sometimes there’s nothing anyone can do about it.”

“I know every book of mine by its smell, and I have but to put my nose between the pages to be reminded of all sorts of things.”
“So Mo began filling the silence with words. He lured them out of the pages as if they had only been waiting for his voice, words long and short, words sharp and soft, cooing, purring words. They danced through the room, painting stained glass pictures, tickling the skin. Even when Meggie nodded off she could still hear them, although Mo had closed the book long ago. Words that explained the world to her, its dark side and its light side, words that built a wall to keep out bad dreams. And not a single bad dream came over that wall for the rest of the night.”
