• “Take me to your trees. Take me to your breakfasts, your sunsets, your bad dreams, your shoes, your nouns. Take me to your fingers." — Margaret Atwood from "The Good Bones"
  • "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." - Matthew 6:21
  • "Of course, you never really forget anyone, but you certainly release them. You stop allowing their history to have any meaning for you today. You let them change their haircut, let them move, let them fall in love again. And when you see this person you have let go, you realize that there is no reason to be sad. The person you knew exists somewhere, but you are separated by too much time to reach them again." - Chelsea Fagan
  • “Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside -remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.” - Charles Bukowski
  • We go to visit two friends who've been together for ten years now, five times longer than we have. I look at the ease with which they sit together on the couch. They joke with each other, curl into each other like apostrophes within a quotation mark as they talk. I realize that two years is not a long time. I realize that ten years is not even a long time. But when it seems insurmountable, I need reminders like this that you can get used to it. That it can take on the comfort of the right choice. That lasting things do, in fact, last. - A Lover's Dictionary
  • On the scales of desire, your absence weighs more than someone else’s presence - Jeffrey McDaniel
  • "I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye." - Pi Patel, Life of Pi
  • "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude about it." - Maya Angelou
  • "You may not control all the events that happen to you but you can decide not to be reduced by them." - Maya Angelou
  • "I think we are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends. We forget all too soon the things we thought we could never forget. We forget the loves and the betrayals alike, forget what we whispered and what we screamed, forget who we were." - Joan Didion
