AH Carlisle III Quotes

"have learned in life, there will always be some things that we really want but they are just not ever going to surface in our life. We have to take a bow and keep it moving because you never know the reason why it was not put there. It could simply be because there is something better just waiting. Never chase after people or things, unless it is a common effort. Patience is a virtue, wasted time is a something you will never get back. - AHCIII"

Quotes About Bill

"Im sorry I started all this by trying to fly and Id take it back if I could but I cant, so please think of it from my point of view: if you die I will have a dead brother and it will be me instead of you who suffers.Justin thought of his brother on that warm summer day, standing up on the windowsill holding both their futures, light and changeable as air, in his outstretched arms.Of course, Justin thought, Im part of his fate just as hes part of mine. I hadnt considered it from his point of view. Or from the point of view of the universe, either. Its just a playing field crammed full of cause and effect, billions of dominoes, each knocking over billions more, setting off trillions of actions every second. A butterfly flaps its wings in Africa and my brother in Luton thinks he can fly.The child nodded. A piano might fall on your head, he said, but it also might not. And in the meantime you never know. Something nice might happen." - Author: Meg Rosoff

Quotes About King Josiah

"As soon as Joe was done feeding Ira Kenbys fucking dog, he was going to call social services again, and Casey would be taken to a home that would be more appropriate for a runaway. So really, Joe would say, they owed much of their lives together to a senile old man and a dog tortured by hunger to the point it didnt know better. (Casey would always reply that they would have met again, because there was just no way they could have lived without each other, but Joes faith didnt run that deep. Casey would say that was because Joe didnt have a Josiah Daniels in his life, and Joe would shake his head and walk off, but that was later in their story.)" - Author: Amy Lane
