brought to you by: the broke and the bookish

Jeni's Picks:
1. "Don't think or judge, just listen."-Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

2. "Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn't make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more." -Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song

3. "There is not always a good guy. Nor is there always a bad one. Most people are somewhere in between." -Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls

4. A person can be educated and still be stupid, and a wise man can have no education at all.” 
--Jennifer A. Nielsen, The False Prince

5. Boredom is what happens to people who have no control over their minds. 
--Rebecca Stead, Liar & Spy

6.All reality is a blender where hopes and dreams are mixed with fear and despair. 
Holly Goldberg, Counting by 7's

7. Words provide a voice to our deepest feelings. I tell you, words have started and stopped wars. Words have built and lost fortunes. Words have saved and taken lives. Words have won and lost great kingdoms. Even Buddha said, 'Whatever words we utter should be chosen with care, for people will hear them and be influenced by them for good or ill.” 
Cameron Wright, The Rent Collector 

8.Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss...." He turned to me. "But every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare.” 
Wendelin Van Draanen, Flipped

9.The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.” 
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

10. Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” 

Corrie Ten Boom, Clipping from my Notebook
