“Did you know that pottery can be repaired with gold?" Kami asked. "Then it's meant to be stronger than before, and more beautiful. Which is awesome, though it seems expensive." Her grandmother had nodded. "Makes sense to me," she said. "Why be broken when you can be gold?” ― Sarah Rees Brennan

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten.

The emotions, whether they were joy, sorrow, love or pride, were so deep and sharp that in the end they left you raw, exposed and yes, in pain. The human heart was not designed to beat outside the human body and yet, each child represented just that - a parent's heart bared, beating forever outside its chest.” ~ Debra Ginsberg
