Sometimes the best quotes are the ones which are ones which make you want to curl up in a ball and cry. They’re the ones which remind you while life can be all happy and chirpy it isn’t always like that; it reminds you that life is full of heart-break, grief, stress, immorality, maltreatment, etc. However, depressing quotes remind you that there are people/ characters out there who went through the same thing. Although sometimes the characters don’t exist their misfortune stemmed from somewhere- no one can made that good a book unless they have some sort of connection to the misfortune.

What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.
“I now know that some people feel unhappiness the way others love: privately, intensely, and without recourse.”
