I suppose you'll either have to be brave and find a new home or you'll have to live inside a broken shell.” ― Christina Baker Kline


“Don't waste your tremendous voice writing messages in the sand.” ― Lorin Morgan-Richards

“When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him. In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.” ― Albert Camus
