“Banning books gives us silence when we need speech. It closes our ears when we need to listen. It makes us blind when we need sight.”
   ― 
Stephen Chbosky

Love isn’t what you expect it to be. You imagine being drunk on happiness, but the truth is, you worry all the time. Is she ill? Hurt? Might she meet someone else? There’s a moment when you realize that you’ve gotten everything you wished for. And right on its heels is the understanding that this means you have so much more to lose.
—  Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer, Off the Page
Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it’s not because they enjoy solitude. It’s because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.
—  Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper
