Quotes

Hi! Welcome to my quotes page!

None of these quotes are mine, they are mostly from books I’ve read, but I’m putting them on this page either because they speak to me personally, because they are simply beautiful or because they made me laugh. 🙂 I hope you like them as much as I do! (This page will get updated at random intervals)

.........

I am spinning the silk threads of my story,
 weaving the fabric of my world...
I spun out of control. Eating was hard. 
Breathing was hard. Living was hardest.

I wanted to swallow the bitter seeds of forgetfulness
...Somehow,I dragged myself out of the dark
 and asked for help.

I spin and weave and knit my words and visions 
until a life starts to take shape.

There is no magic cure,
 no making it all go away forever.
 There are only small steps upward; 
an easier day, an unexpected laugh, 
a mirror that doesn't matter anymore.

I am thawing.”

- Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirls
