"In bed that night I invented a special drain that would be underneath every pillow in New York, and would connect to the reservoir. Whenever people cried themselves to sleep, the tears would all go to the same place, and in the morning the weatherman could report if the water level of the Reservoir of Tears had gone up or down, and you could know if New York is in heavy boots." 
-Jonathan Safran Foer

"In the end, everyone loses everyone. There was no invention to get around that, and so I felt, that night, like the turtle that everything else in the universe was on top of." 
-Jonathan Safran Foer

and love is a tired symphony
you hum when you're awake

Sometimes when responsibilities begin to add up and the stress mounts up I just let my room fall into chaos. That way at the end of the day there is some control; if I can organize my books and clothes then I can organize my life back to normal too.

"If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad." 
-Jane Austen

"she had always suffered from a vague restlessness, a longing for adventure that she told herself severely was the result of reading too many novels when she was a small child."
-Robin Mckinley

"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." 
-Albert Einstein

"Alice had got so much into the way of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen, that it seemed quite dull and stupid for life to go on in the common way." 
-Lewis Carroll

But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.

"So, my little Amélie, you don't have bones of glass. You can take life's knocks. If you let this chance pass, eventually, your heart will become as dry and brittle as my skeleton. "
