    • Evolution, Me & Other Freaks of Nature by Robin Brande

"I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to move on when the one you love walks away from you. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything truly worth knowing."

    • Neil Gaiman

"If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world."

"All good things are wild and free."

    • Henry David Thoreau

"…in my dreams the world would come alive, becoming so captivatingly majestic, free and ethereal, that afterwards it would be oppressive to breathe the dust of this painted life."

    • Invitation to a Beheading by Vladimir Nabokov

"At every moment of our lives we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss."

    • Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho

    • no one

"Anybody who thinks of going to bed before 12 o'clock is a scoundrel."

    • Samuel Johnson

"September: it was the most beautiful of words, he’d always felt, evoking orange-flowers, swallows, and regret."

    • absolutely no idea
