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 

*Dolls, Wynonna and Nicole are all arguing in the BBD offices*

Wynonna: I don’t see the problem, let’s just use my big ass gun!

Dolls: He could kill you before you even lifted the gun up.

Nicole: We don’t know if he’s a revenant, he could be just another asshole, we can’t go in all guns blazing! There are rules we have to follow.

*Arguing intensifies*

Waverly: GUYS! For every second you waste arguing, I will write a letter on this board and it will spell out the name of the next character that will die in Game Of Thrones.

Wynonna: ….. You wouldn’t.

Waverly: Okay… *Writes* R….

Dolls: You don’t know who dies next.

Waverly: *Continues writing* A…

Nicole: She does. She’s read the books.

Wynonna: …. There are books?

“There’s no one way to be a girl, Tay. You don’t need to fit yourself into what society tells us a girl should be. Girls can be whoever they want. Whether that’s an ass-kicking, sarcastic, crime-solving FBI Agent or a funny, gorgeous, witty beauty queen–or both at the same time.“ She swings an arm around me and pulls me in.

"Are you happy the way you are? Are you comfortable? Do you feel like yourself?”

The corner of my mouth lifts into a half smile. “Yes. Yes. And yes.”

“Then that’s all that matters. Fuck everything else.”

She is oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. The same elements that are inside the rest of us, but I can’t help thinking she’s more than that and she’s got other elements going on that no one’s ever heard of, ones that make her stand apart from everybody else.
