Every time a thought goes through your head it changes your whole being. Some thoughts change you only a little; some thoughts change you a great deal. But all of them change you.

I say free will and imagination are deeply linked, and if you don't believe you have one it just means that you lack the other.

"A year from now, you may wish you had started today." For an ardent procrastinator such as myself, this quote serves as both good advice and a bit of a mockery.

Latest Review: Stand Firm to be Free! by Jan Schaffner

When the shadow of the sash appeared on the curtains it was between seven and eight o' clock and then I was in time again, hearing the watch. It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire; it's rather excruciating-ly apt that you will use it to gain the reducto absurdum of all human experience which can fit your individual needs no better than it fitted his or his father's. I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it. Because no battle is ever won he said. They are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly and despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools.
-William Faulker, The Sound and the Fury

ooooo I love this one. It's so sad. I love the touches like the mispronunciation of "reducto absurdum" and how dreamy the whole thing feels.

Gayle Forman's simple I was here. It was the last sentence of the book and the title as well. It just really resonated with me.

I love this quote because it gives me hope that good things can come out of bad situations.

We're all human, aren't we? Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I remember this quote making me stop for a good moment and just think.
The world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters.

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
This quote hit me really hard, the word isn’t just good and bad (black and white), we all have shades of grey.
