I think this will only make sense if you're a Harry Potter fan but I listen to the Sacred Text Podcast and this weeks episode was for the Chapter 'The Prince's Tale'

 

I think It's my faveourite in the whole series, it was such a 'before and after' chapter in which Snape became my faveourite character.

Everything he did and went through was for Lily so..

 

"After all this time"

"Always" 

 

I know I like it because I grew up with the Harry Potter books I think the situation is applicable to life though too how you only ever see the surface of someone elses life. I think that quote alone stands up too even on it's own with no context how deep love can be.


"Insanity is a logical response to an insane world".

 

Stereotypes have their place but life is a Spectrum and if you don't see that you miss out on so many of the colours.

“Why do people have to be this lonely? What's the point of it all? Millions of people in this world, all of them yearning, looking to others to satisfy them, yet isolating themselves. Why? Was the earth put here just to nourish human loneliness?”
― Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart

 

“Imagine smiling after a slap in the face. Then think of doing it twenty-four hours a day.”

― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

 

“Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break.”

― William Shakespeare, Macbeth

On no less childish but more positive, Dr.Seusse.

 

'Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive you-er than you!'.

 

'You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose'.

cliché, but: "Gentlemen, my father always detested me because I could not understand mathematics. I understand only love and liberty." (Hugo, Les Miserables)
another that just means a lot to me personally is from GRRM in A Clash Of Kings; "It is the cold, nothing more, Theon told himself, a shiver, not a tremble. Even brave men shiver."

Some lines from some of my favourite books:

 

"Each time you happen to me all over again."

- Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence

 

“Where you come from is gone, where you thought you were going to was never there, and where you are is no good unless you can get away from it. Where is there a place for you to be? No place... Nothing outside you can give you any place... In yourself right now is all the place you've got.”

- Flannery O'Connor, Wise Blood

 

“There was a star riding through clouds one night, & I said to the star, 'Consume me'.”

- Virgina Woolf, The Waves
