Arrivals and Departures.

And as we slowed for just a breath, to a kiss that was sweeter and more lingering, I understood in a flash why, on the Greyhound sign, Arrivals and Departures were right next to each other. Because sometimes, like in that moment, they can mean exactly the same thing.

Real World.

The trouble with you and me, is that we don’t live in the real world. We dream of fantastic things that may never happen.

~Endless Night by: Agatha Christie

Chained.

There was beauty in the idea of freedom, but it was an illusion. Every human heart was chained by love.

~Lady Midnight by: Cassandra Clare

Melody.

He’s like a song she can’t get out of her head. Hard as she tries, the melody of their meeting runs through her mind on an endless loop, each time as surprisingly sweet as the last, like a lullaby, like a hymn, and she doesn’t think she could ever get tired of hearing it.

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!
