Sometimes I would open my eyes when we were kissing, I would watch him and I could see it. I could actually see love—not words, not an emotion, not an abstract concept or a subjective state of mind, but a living, breathing thing.
How to Kill A Rock Star by Tiffanie DeBartolo
I’m astounded by people who want to ‘know’ the universe when it’s hard enough to find your way around Chinatown.
I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances.
Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are. What goes around comes around. That’s how it works.
The Karma Club by Jessica Brody
For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don’t enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you’re not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.
She knew that this was happiness, this was living as she had always wished to live.
Frenchman’s Creek by Daphne du Maurier
Life is too short…and nothing is certain. Nothing. Just because you tell someone you’ll talk to them later, or you’ll see them tomorrow, there is no guarantee that either of those things will happen. You hope they will. Hell, we all assume they will. But we don’t really know. Life can change in an instant. A single instant.
Chance Encounters by J. Sterling
When he died, I suddenly realized I wasn’t crying for him at all, but for the things he did. I cried because he would never do them again.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
It finally felt like summer. Heavy heat, totally humid, and everything just smelled kind of smoky and thick, as if close to boiling.
This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
I guess that’s what makes life special. It’s unexpected. Scary as hell. But in the end, totally worth it.
Tear by Rachel Van Dyken
I love the idea of the big life – the life that matters, the life that makes a difference. The life where stuff happens, where people take action. The opposite of the life where the girl can’t even speak to the boy she likes; the opposite of the life where the friends aren’t even good friends, and lots of days are wasted away feeling bored and kind of okay, like nothing matters much.
Fly on the Wall by E. Lockhart
Life, he realized, was much like a song. In the beginning there is mystery, in the end there is confirmation, but it’s in the middle where all the emotion resides to make the whole thing worthwhile.
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
