I wondered whether I could find a Great Perhaps here at all or whether I had made a grand miscalculation.
No, I donâ€™t think youâ€™re gonna be single forever, and also I donâ€™t understand your obsession with romantic love. There are other ways to have fulfilling relationships that can sustain you and make your life great and fun other than having a sexualized relationship. Itâ€™s not the only kind of
I believe in hope, in what is something called â€radical hope.â€ I believe there is hope for all of us, even amid the suffering. And thatâ€™s why I write fiction, probaby. Itâ€™s my attempt to keep that fragile strand of radical hope, to buld a fire in the darkness.r
The five of us walking confidently in a row, I'd never felt cooler. The Great Perhaps was upon us, and we were invincible. The plan may have had faults, but we did not.
Youâ€™re joining us for dinner, I hope?â€ asked his mom. She was small and brunette and vaguely mousy. â€œI guess?â€ I said. â€œI have to be home by ten. Also I donâ€™t, um, eat meat?â€ â€œNo problem. Weâ€™ll vegetarianize some,â€ she said. â€œAnimals are just too cute?â€ Gus asked. â€œI want to min
There is always the risk: something is good and good and good and good, then all at once it gets awkward.
I do love you and what else matters but that
...a taste so profound and complex that it can't even be compared to other tastes, only to emotions. Cheesy waffles, I was thinking, tastes like love without the fear of love's dissolution...
I think if you keep the box closed long enough you do kill the cat, actually.
The prospect of a world that contains neither humans nor Z's is not so terrifying. Nature will take its world back. Animals will frolic and fight. There will be no lord of the manor, which is not such a bad thing, because it seems to me that people have done a pretty poor job of guiding the biospher
We still did not answer the questions that are important to us
What they forget is that, from Ancient Greece on, the people who returned from battle were either dead on their shields or stronger, despite and because of their scars.
Going to a charity tea party and thinking that you've done your bit toward putting an end to social inequity in the world.
Usually the threat of death makes people a lot more aware of their lives.
Despising anything that was easy to achieve because if no sacrifice was involved, it obviously isn't worth having.
It is not enough to dream of the Impossible Love - it is necessary to conquer it too.
Do not struggle against your thoughts; they are stronger than you are. If you want to be free of them, accept them.
The world we live in will be either better or worse depending on whether we become better or worse.
That's what the world is like: people talk as if they knew everything, but ifyou dare to ask a question, they don't know anything.
You start living for the obsession alone ... You want to arrive somewhere regardless of whether you're enjoying the road or not.
The fool who loves giving advice on our garden never tends his own plants
Forget everything you've ever learned about the stars and they'll once more be transformed into angels, or into children, or into whatever you want to believe at that moment. It won't make you more stupid - after all, it's only a game - but it could enrich your life.
Everything is worship if your mind is focused on the present moment.
A flower is not better when it blooms than when it is merely a bud; at each stage it is the same thing â€” a flower in the process of expressing its potential.
It is not the life that matters, but the journey.
Don't give to anyone the power to put you down. Haters are losers pretending to be winners.
When I had nothing more to lose, I was given everything. When I ceased to be who I am, I found myself. When I experienced humiliation and yet kept on walking, I understood that I was free to choose my destiny.
A man is at his strongest when he is willing to accept his vulnerability
When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.
However good we are, however correctly we seek to lead our lives, tragedies do occur. We can blame others, look for justification, imagine how our lives would have been different without them. But none of that matters: they have happened, and that is that. From this point on, it is necessary that we
