The Collected Works of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin (via stillmeaningless)
"There is nothing sweeter in this sad world than the sound of someone you love calling your name."
The Tale of Despereaux (Kate DiCamillo)
"Glinda chooses the easy road because she doesn’t think she’s brave enough to go with Elphaba. She’s not done changing yet, and she falls back on the security of her old dreams. She chooses to be in with the good guys, aligned with the majority - popular. Glinda chose the wrong path, and is stuck on it for the long haul. She’s rewarded with the empty security of public approval, and is set to live the rest of life thinking the one person who changed it is dead. Glinda’s last notes in Wicked are in mourning, a lament for Elphaba, who can never let Glinda know she’s still singing in harmony with her. "
"Thank God for books and music and things I can think about."
Daniel Keyes, Flowers For Algernon (via larmoyante)
