We can’t expect everybody to be there for us, all at once. So it’s a lucky thing that really, all you need is someone

Sarah Dessen, “Lock and Key”

If you try anything, if you try to lose weight, or to improve yourself, or to love, or to make the world a better place, you have already achieved something wonderful, before you even begin. Forget failure. If things don’t work out the way you want, hold your head up high and be proud. And try again. And again. And again!

Sarah Dessen (Keeping the Moon)

But if you never really make friends, you probably don’t have anyone to be your two a.m. Which would kind of suck.”

Anyone can hide. Facing up to things, working through them, that’s what makes you strong.

The Truth About Forever, Sarah Dessen

When something’s difficult to come by, you’ll do that much more to make sure it’s even harder, if not impossible, to lose.

Along for the Ride, Sarah Dessen

Once you love something, you always love it in some way. You have to. It’s, like, part of you for good.

What Happened To Goodbye (again)

Oh, and going to the beach. And sleeping. A lot. 


I don’t know what I’d do without Sarah Dessen books… So tempted to start one right now. Luckily, I left them all at school.
