"For my part, I never talk to the child about time. We talk about other things- though not about anything much- and never about tomorrow. For me that is impossible. Tomorrow we could all be wiped out. You think back upon all the promises you did not manage to keep. Talk about time and you will always end up making promises. Then it is better to say nothing at all, no matter what."
- Peter Høeg
"All things pass in time. We are far less significant than we imagine ourselves to be. All that we are, all that we have wrought, is but a shadow, no matter how durable it may seem. One day, when the last man has breathed his last breath, the sun will shine, the mountains will stand, the rain will fall, the streams will whisper- and they will not miss him."
- Jim Butcher
"Because you are defined not by life's imperfect moments, but by your reaction to them. And because there is joy in embracing- rather than running from- the utter absurdity of life."
- Jenny Lawson
"Find the things that matter, and hold on to them, and fight for them, and refuse to let them go."- Lauren Oliver
