Holiday here and so you get some quotes to enjoy and wonder about. Have a good weekend :)
"I sometimes think that shame, mere awkward, senseless shame, does as much towards preventing good acts and straightforward happiness as any of our vices can do. And not only in boyhood."
- C.S. Lewis in A Grief Observed.
"Stella turned towards me and crumpled my heart in her hand.
'Do you fall in love often?'
Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all."
- Jeanette Winterson in Gut Symmetries
"Don't worry about losing. If it's right, it happens - The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away."
- John Steinbeck, in a letter to his son Thom.
