"A tongue has no bones but it can break a heart."
"I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass."
"The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters."
"We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox."
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
"Nothing kills you like your mind"
