I like it when it rains hard. It sounds like white noise everywhere, which is like silence but not empty.

Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (via 4mbivalent)

Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.

Rainer Maria Rilke (via booksandnerds)

If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.

Albert Einstein (via booksandnerds)

You can tell a lot about someone from their bookmarks. For the reader, they perform a vital role. They are guardians standing in the way of threads being lost, plot points missed. They are a fixed point, a sliver of paper standing between the gulf of what went before and what is yet to come, like some Dickensian ghost. It is not a job to be given lightly, so we choose our bookmarks wisely.

It is so hard to leave—until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.

John Green (via booksandnerds)

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

Harry S. Truman (via booksandnerds)

The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.

Ernest Hemingway (via booksandnerds)

A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.

Mark Twain (via booksandnerds)
