“That’s death and life, you see. We all shine on. You just have to release your hearts, alert your senses, and pay attention. A leaf, a star, a song, a laugh. Notice the little things because somebody is reaching out to you. Qualcino ti ama. Somebody loves you.” —The Death & Life of Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood
just because the answers create more questions doesn’t mean they’re not answers.
“What is beautiful is fleeting.” —The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood
“‘Live each day as if it is your last,’ that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to simply try and be good and courageous and bold and to make a difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Go out there with your passion and your electric typewriter and work hard at…something. Change lives through art maybe. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance.” —One Day by David Nicholls
