Khalil Gibran quote #71 from The Prophet

When love beckons to you follow himThough his ways are hard and steep.And When his wings enfold you yield to himThough the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.And When he speaks to you believe in himThough his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden...But if in your fear you would seek only loves peace and loves pleasureThen it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out ofloves threshing-floorInto the seasonless world where you shall laugh but not all of your laughter and weep but not all of your tears...But if you love and must needs have desires let these be your desiresTo melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.To know the pain of too much tenderness.To be wounded by your own understanding of loveAnd to bleed willingly and joyfully.

Catherynne M. Valente quote #360 from The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

For there are two kinds of forgiveness in the world the one you practice because everything really is all right and what went before is mended. The other kind of forgiveness you practice because someone needs desperately to be forgiven or because you need just as badly to forgive them for a heart can grab hold of old wounds and go sour as milk over them.

James Patterson quote #330 from Fang

The fight unfolded like background noise. White noise. In the foreground even with his ghastly pale face looking dead in my hands my fingers clenching his ragged hair all I could see was random images of Fang not dead.Fang telling me stupid fart jokes from the dog crate next to mine at the school trying to make me laugh.Fang asleep at Jebs old house and me jumping wildly on his bed to wake him up. Him pretending to be asleep. Me laughing when I accidentally kicked him where it counts. Him dumping me off the bed.Fang gagging on my first attempt at cooking dinner after Jeb disappeared. Him spitting out the mac and cheese. Me dumping the rest of the bowl on him in response.Fang on the beach that first time he was badly injured. Me realizing how I felt about him.Fang kissing me. So close I couldnt even see his dark eyes anymore. The first time. The second time. The third.I could always remember each and every one of them. Would always remember them.Fang.Not.Dead.
