Be strong saith my heart;
I am a soldier,
I have seen worse sights than this.

Ian McEwan, Sweet Tooth

Poetry isn’t like any writing I’ve ever heard before. I don’t understand all of it, just bits of images, sentences that appear half-finished, all fluttering together like brightly colored ribbons in the wind."
Lauren Oliver, Delirium (via wordsnquotes)
Anyone can love a thing because. That’s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket.
But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect."
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man’s Fear (via wordsnquotes)
Of course ghosts are real, they hide inside your bones."

Margaret Atwood, Cat’s Eye

Don’t listen to me; my heart’s been broken.
I don’t see anything objectively.

I know myself; I’ve learned to hear like a psychiatrist.
When I speak passionately,
that’s when I’m least to be trusted.

It’s very sad, really: all my life, I’ve been praised
for my intelligence, my powers of language, of insight.
In the end, they’re wasted—

I never see myself…"
Glück, Louise. “The Untrustworthy Speaker.”  (via wordsnquotes)
