book geek quotes

I know people who graduated college at 21, and didn’t get a salary job until they were 27. I know people who graduated at 25 and already had a salary job. I know people who have children and are single. I know people who are married and had to wait 8-10 years to be parents. I know people who are in a relationship and love someone else. I know people who love each other and aren’t together. There are people waiting to love and be loved. My point is, everything in life happens according to our time, our clock. You may look at your friends and some may seem to be ahead or behind you, but they’re not, they’re living according to the pace of their clock, so be patient. You’re not falling behind, it’s just not your time.

Book Geek Quote 

Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you’ll meet a boy who will learn your favorite flower, your favorite song, your favorite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won’t matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart.

Book Geek Quote

“Break my heart. Break it a thousand times if you like. It was only ever yours to break anyway.”

The One - Kiera Cass

That’s what we do. We walk a tightrope every day. Getting out the door is a tightrope. Going grocery shopping is a tightrope. Socializing is a tightrope. Things that most people consider to be normal, daily parts of life are the very things we fear and struggle with the most, and yet here we are, moving forward anyway. That’s not weak.

You get yourself a stupid tattoo, you wear indecent clothes, you neglect your studies, you curse and show disrespect because you think it makes you a rebel? Well, do you know those kids who don’t mind wearing the same thing everyday, the ones who wear ugly glasses, the ones who don’t go to parties, who spend twenty hours straight locked up with their books, the ones who are not cool? Those are the ones who don’t care about what you think. Those are the real rebels.
