Candor.

And that’s the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.

~The Kite Runner by: Khaled Hosseini

Sorry.

Sorry is the Kool-Aid of human emotions. It’s what you say when you spill a cup of coffee or throw a gutter ball when you’re bowling with the girls in the league. True sorrow is as rare as true love.

~Carrie by: Stephen King

Fitting.

This is the story of a family who didn’t fit in. A little girl who was a bit geeky and liked maths more than makeup. And a boy who liked makeup and didn’t fit into any tribes.

~One Plus One by: Jojo Moyes

Gossip.

Oh, don’t be a spoilsport. Gossip is sexy. Gossip is good. Not everybody does it, but everybody should!

~Gossip Girl by: Cecily von Ziegesar

One.

Oh, aye, Sassenach. I am your master . . . and you’re mine. Seems I canna possess your soul without losing my own.

~Outlander by: Diana Gabaldon

Happy and Sad.

So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.

~The Perks of Being a Wallflower by: Stephen Chbosky

Home isn’t a place.

For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.

~Anna and the French Kiss by: Stephanie Perkins

Love.

Love is like a tree: it grows by itself, roots itself deeply in our being and continues to flourish over a heart in ruin. The inexplicable fact is that the blinder it is, the more tenacious it is. It is never stronger than when it is completely unreasonable.

~The Hunchback of Notre Dame by: Victor Hugo

The Whole Story.

So many versions of just one memory, and yet none of them were right or wrong. Instead, they were all pieces. Only when fitted together, edge to edge, could they even begin to tell the whole story.
