Book lover

I’ve been so stuck with The Count of Monte Cristo that I haven’t even managed to read any comics. So I spent today the whole morning reading these two (and watching Buffy).

I think I’ve read Deadman Wonderland before but didn’t like it. I like it better now, at least the first volume. With the Light was as good as ever but somehow I hope something would happen. I guess I want more drama.

Our life is made up of time; our days are measured in hours, our pay measured by those hours, our knowledge is measured by years. We grab a few quick minutes in our busy day to have a coffee break. We rush back to our desks, we watch the clock, we live by appointments. And yet your time eventually runs out and you wonder in your heart of hearts if those seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years and decades were being spent the best way they possibly could. In other words, if you could change anything, would you?

I can only assume that there’s only one thing more frustrating than not being able to find someone, and that’s not being found. I would want someone to find me, more than anything.
Cecelia Ahern, A Place Called Here (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)
You deserve someone who loves you with every single beat of his heart, someone who thinks about you constantly, someone who spends every minute of every day just wondering what you’re doing, where you are, who you’re with, and if you’re OK. You need someone who can help you reach your dreams and protect you from your fears. You need someone who will treat you with respect, love every part of you, especially your flaws. You should be with someone who could make you happy, really happy, dancing on air happy.

Finding someone you love and who loves you back is a wonderful, wonderful feeling. But finding a true soul mate is an even better feeling. A soul mate is someone who understands you like no other, loves you like no other, will be there for you forever, no matter what. They say that nothing lasts forever, but I am a firm believer in the fact that for some, love lives on even after we’re gone.

If you could find the right enemy, you could totally kick ass. It’s just hard when the enemy’s not a person. And it’s even harder than that when that enemy’s taken up residence in your own head. So much easier to fight people, isn’t it?

I often didn’t say things out loud, even when I should. I contain and compartmentalize to a disturbing degree: In my belly-basement are hundreds of battles of rage, despair, fear, but you’d never guess from looking at me.

~Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
