“I don’t want to start thinking again. Not like I have this last week. I can’t think again. Not ever again.
I don’t know if you’ve ever felt like that. That you wanted to sleep for a thousand years. Or just not exist. Or just not be aware that you do exist. Or something like that. I think wanting that is very morbid, but I want it when I get like this. That’s why I’m trying not to think. I just want it all to stop spinning.”—
“So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”—Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower)
“I walked over to the hill where we used to go and sled. There were a lot of little kids there. I watched them flying. Doing jumps and having races. And I thought that all those little kids are going to grow up someday. And all of those little kids are going to do the things that we do. And they will all kiss someone someday. But for now, sledding is enough. I think it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isn’t.”—The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
“Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer. Do you know you’re unlike any other? You’ll always be my thunder, and I said your eyes are the brightest of all the colors. I don’t wanna ever love another. You’ll always be my thunder. So bring on the rain, and bring on the thunder.”—Thunder, Boys Like Girls
