Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino

  • "The traveler recognizes the little that is his, discovering the much he has not had and will never have."

The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan

  • "abstraction, n. Love is one kind of abstraction. And then there are nights when I sleep alone, when I curl into a pillow that isn't you, when I hear the tiptoe sounds that aren't yours. It's not as if I can conjure you there completely. I must embrace the idea of you instead."
  • "When you're in love with someone, a well-placed question mark can be the difference between bliss and disaster, and a deeply respected period or a very cleverly inserted ellipsis can prevent all kinds of exclamations."
  • "fast, n. and adj. Starvation and speed. Noun and adjective. This is where I get caught. A fast is the opposite of desire. It is the negation of desire. It is what I feel after we fight. The speed does us in. We act rashly, we say too much, we don't let all the synapses connect before we do the thing we shouldn't do. You make it a production. Slam doors. Knock things over. Scream. But I just leave. Even if I'm still standing there, I leave. I am refusing you. I am denying you. I am an adjective that is quickly turning into a noun."


  • "When people see images of their loved ones, the caudate neucleus of their basal ganglia floods with dopamine. Nicotine and other drugs also stimulate increases in dopamine so that when you try to quit smoking or sugar, your brain craves that substance the same way it craves the person who broke your freaking heart. You'll do crazy, idiotic things to get your fix. That's because when you're in love, it's not as if you're an addict. You are an addict... literally." - S3E7 "Bolero"
  • "If the past is prologue, is our script written in permanent ink? - S3E8 "Prologue"
  • "In our modern world, true quiet is as rare as a truly dark sky. So when you find it, the silence reveals an unexpected beauty, just like the darkness reveals the milky way." - S3E9 "Silence"
