Quote of the Day – March 17

“Sometimes I just think depression’s one way of coping with the world. Like, some people get drunk, some people do drugs, some get depressed. Because there’s so much stuff out there that you have to do something to deal with.”

~Ned Vizzini, It’s Kind of a Funny Story (2006)


Quote of the Day – March 14

“The world turns and the world spins, the tide runs in and the tide runs out, and there is nothing in the world more beautiful and more wonderful in all its evolved forms than two souls who look at each other straight on. And there is nothing more woeful and soul-saddening than when they are parted…everything in the world rejoices in the touch, and everything in the world laments in the losing.”

~Gary D. Schmidt, Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy (2004)

Quote of the Day – March 12

“So many people never pause long enough to make up their minds about basic issues of life and death. It’s quite possible to go through your whole life, making the mechanical motions of living, adopting as your own set of ideals you’ve picked up some place or other and die – never having come to any conclusion for yourself as to what life is all about. All thoughtful men ask the same questions sooner or later.”

~Catherine Marshall, Christy (1967)
