Remember, only in another person's heart can you truly see yourself and the presence of God within you"

His attention, his hunger, was the thrill; it was an ego massage which in itself was better than her breasts being fondled."
Author: Freya North

He is as guilty as guilty can be!"
Author: Hilary Mantel

Author: John Doerr
22. "Each person possesses and inviolability founded on justice that even the welfare of society as a whole cannot override. For this reason, justice denies that the loss of freedom for some is made right by a greater good shared by others. It does not allow that the sacrifices imposed on a few are outweighed by the larger sum of advantages enjoyed by many. Therefore in a just society the liberties of equal citizenship are taken as settled; the rights secured by justice are not subject to political bargaining or to the calculus of social interests. The only thing that permits us to acquiesce in an erroneous theory is the lack of a better one; analogously, an injustice is tolerable only when it is necessary to avoid an even greater injustice. Being first virtues of human activities, truth and justice are uncompromising."
Author: John Rawls

25. "I would hate to have parents who were always looking over my shoulder, reading my diary, checking my thoughts. I would hate to be exposed. And so, perhaps, when I say I long to be a pane of glass, I am lying. I long for partial obscurity at the same time that I long for someone to know me.It is confusing and difficult to be me.Sometimes I I need to cry in order to release the great welling sadness I feel in my head.For this I need privacy. I do not want anyone to see me and ask why, almost as much as I would like to be comforted. Somehow, without ever being present, Matthew has exposed all of this, brought it wriggling to the surface like worms. They gather there now, vaguely nostalgic for the dark."
Author: Meg Rosoff
26. "The handy thing about being a father is that the historic standard is so pitifully low."
Author: Michael Chabon

It may well be that, in a moment of joy, one might sincerely believe that they are living that golden instant "now," even having lived such a moment before, but whatever they say, in one part of their hearts they still believe in the certainty of a happier moment to come. Because how could anyone, and particularly anyone who is still young, carry on with the belief that everything could only get worse: If a person is happy enough to think he has reached the happiest moment of his life, he will be hopeful enough to believe his future will be just as beautiful, more so."
Author: Orhan Pamuk

Author: Val Edward Simone
33. "Thus play I in one person many people, And none contented: sometimes am I king; Then treasons make me wish myself a beggar, And so I am: then crushing penury Persuades me I was better when a king; Then am I king'd again: and by and by Think that I am unking'd by Bolingbroke, And straight am nothing: but whate'er I be, Nor I nor any man that but man is With nothing shall be pleased, till he be eased With being nothing."
Author: William Shakespeare

Stop looking at it," Cole commanded. "Focus on walking." I turned to face him and he raised an eyebrow at my appearance. "What is it?" I said. He bit his lip. "It's okay. I always thought you should have short hair." My hand flew up to the side of my head. I felt brittle, curly strands that fell away as I touched them."
