Absences are a good influence in love and keep it bright and delicate.
The cruelest lies are often told in silence.
To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive.
I think that when enough time has passed, when you've survived that which you didn't imagine you could, there's a dignity in that. Something you can own. A pride in knowing the pain made you stronger. The pain made you fight to succeed. Someday, when I'm living my dreams, I'm going to think of all the things that broke my heart and I'm going to be thankful for them.
—Mia Sheridan in Kyland
It is horrifying that we have to fight our government to save the environment.
Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.
—M. Leighton in Up to Me
