“Sometimes I don’t say the things I really want to say. Sometimes things seem too small or silly and I end up feeling as tiny a blade of grass, waiting for someone to cut me down. Like all of the times I have said something honest and real and people laugh and call me naive, because sometimes people think that optimism is a novelty, or something that you will grow out of, like baby teeth.
"Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we’re wired that way. Because without it, I don’t know; maybe we just wouldn’t feel real. What’s that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop."
- Meredith Grey

"Those people who tell me that I'm going to hell while they are going to heaven somehow make me very glad that we're going to separate destinations."
~ Martin Terman
"Life is not always a matter of holding good cards, but sometimes, in playing a tough hand well."
Robert Louis Stevenson
“Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
"I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited."-Sylvia Plath
