#41788
« I felt something get stuck in my throat, cutting my breath. I had to get used to it. This idea that someone is no longer there, you never get used to it. »
Sarah Dessen (Forever... until tomorrow)


#41789
« _D agree," he said, taking his breath. What would you do if you could do what you wanted? I took a step towards him. _Ca, I answered, and I kissed him. Kissed. There, in the middle of the street, while the world was conducting its business around us. Behind me, Jason waited for an explanation, my sister continued to lecture, and the angel, ready to fly away, kept her eyes raised to the sky. As for me, I felt that I had finally taken the right path. The one who started here, at that very moment, with Tim, with a kiss that took my breath and gave it back to me, leaving me full of life more than ever. »
Sarah Dessen (Forever... until tomorrow)


#41790
« I leaned over and kissed him on the forehead. He looked up and smiled at me. Then I sat in front of him, while the waitress approached and served me my coffee. As I was putting on my hot cup to warm up, I felt his hand rest on my knee. The morning would be here soon enough, without anyone noticing. But waiting for it, we had all night ahead of us and we were together. So I closed my eyes and took advantage of the moment. »

#41791
« What is a family? First, it is a sense of belonging. Whether you are good or bad, whether you are totally accepted or half- the family will always be there, and will not let you go, that it will happen. It's not just a story of chromosomes or blood ties, it's something more intense and grandiose. [...] We have several families. For starters, the family where you're born. Then, the families you create during your life: with your friends, your lovers or even strangers. None is perfect, besides no one expects to find perfection. Nor can one impose one's own vision of things and life on others. The secret is to take what you are given and make something of it to build a world. »
Sarah Dessen (You who have the key...)


#41792
« In life, there are people, realities and evidence that we rely on, because they are two hundred per cent safe. But when they tumble off their pedestal and let you down, it's the whole world that breaks their mouths, and our confidence with it. »
Sarah Dessen (Someone like you)


#41793
« And then, all of a sudden, I thought we had something in common. Some kind of natural chemistry, if you will. And I felt that something crazy was going to happen to us. To both of you. That we were meant for each other, in a way. »
Sarah Dessen (That song...)


#41794
« And, since he was always dressed in black, it felt like he was in front of an undead, or a half-dead living, it depended on whether one was optimistic or not. »
Sarah Dessen (Someone like you)


#41795
« To love someone is to need them. It's supporting its flaws because in a way they complement you. »
Sarah Dessen (That song...)


#41796
« You can't close your heart like a tap. You have to go back to the source and drip it out. It takes time. »
Sarah Dessen (Someone like you)


#41797
« I made a quick decision, of the ones you make in a life-or-death situation. We weren't there, it's true, but I didn't think about it, I acted urgently: I dipped my hand in the beans. I took a good handful and I threw it on Eliot without hesitation. The beans splashed on his face and on his head, a few landed on the tip of his shoes. I've heard the others completely tetanus suspend their suflle, it may seem incredible but it's true! I was staring only at Eliot, who blinked and wiped his nose. _Oh, he tells me. You'll see what you're going to see! »

#41798
« - Tristan is harmful to you. As if Tristan had been a food - not a green pepper or an orange, but a calorie and highly toxic Bounty. »
Sarah Dessen (Someone like you)


#41799
« -Keeping people at bay and depriving themselves of love doesn't make you strong. On the contrary. Because it's fear. -Afraid of what? -To take a risk. The risk of things happening, the risk of getting carried away... But the risk is life. Refusing to try, out of fear, is a waste. Okay I made mistakes, a lot even, but I have no regrets. Because at least I didn't sit on the side of the road wondering what living means. »
Sarah Dessen (That song...)


#41800
« Someone who grabbed my elbows with his hands, and restored my balance. His hands brought a feeling of freshness to my burning skin, and that presence behind me was like a solid thing, a wall where I could be supported and that would not give way. I turned my head. It was Tim. »
Sarah Dessen (Forever... until tomorrow)


#41801

Sarah Dessen (On the road to the future)


#41803

#41804
« You can't close your heart like a tap. You have to go back to the source and drip it out. It takes time. »
Sarah Dessen (Someone like you)


#41805
« She was strong, as strong as I was weak. She fell, she got hurt, she got up. She lived. And despite her failures, she continued to believe. Maybe next time would be the right one. Or maybe not. But by refusing to play, we were condemned to never know. »
Sarah Dessen (That song...)


#41806
« Stories so beautiful or so long they always end with the fine word. »
Sarah Dessen (On the road to the future)


#41807
« Someone had to have fun with the sound button, because the volume was getting louder and louder. Assaulted by the remix of a Barbra Streisand hit, I crossed my legs, closed my eyes and nervously clung to the armrests of the chair. A few more weeks, I thought. A few weeks, and I won't be here. At that very moment, someone hit my chair. My elbow hit the wall violently, just where it hurts, and an electric shock went through my arm. It was too much taste. I was. Very upset. It's curious how sometimes it only takes a simple scramble to make you mad. - Damn it! I cried, ready to unscrew the head of the stupid salesman who allowed himself this kind of familiarity with me. My elbow was still vibrating and I had heat waves in my neck. Very bad sign. Turning my head, I saw that he was not a salesman, but a guy of my age, black and curly hair, wearing a bright orange t-shirt. And that stupid SOURIAIT. "Hi! he exclaimed in a playful voice. All right? -What's your problem? I roar as I rub my elbow. - My problem? "You sent me into the wall, you asshole!" He blinked. - My God, what a language... I stared at him. You, buddy, you really don't fall on the right day... »
Sarah Dessen (That song...)

Sarah Dessen (Forever... until tomorrow)


#41811
« I don't know how much time it was before Tim arrived. Seconds, maybe minutes, or even hours. He said my name, and I tried to pull myself together, but I couldn't. So he put his arms around me, in a hesitant way, as if he expected me to push him away. As I did not, he came closer, gently laid his hands on my shoulders. Hundreds of times I saw myself, making a step back when they came to me like this: whether it was my mother or my sister, I always disappeared, hiding to cry, putting myself out of their reach to be alone with myself. This time, however, I did not resist. I let Tim pull me towards him, pressing my head on his chest, where I heard his heart beat, a loud and steady beat. »
Sarah Dessen (Forever... until tomorrow)


#41812
« I smiled and in the middle of the Tallyho, in the middle of the night but out of time, Eliot kissed me. It wasn't as I imagined, but it was perfect. When we stopped kissing, the song ended, but everyone was hugged, continuing to dance. I put my head on Eliot's chest to make the pleasure last. The DJ had not lied. It was already tomorrow. And my little finger told me that the day would be belligerent. »
Sarah Dessen (On the road to the future)


#41813
« We must not fear the unknown. Those close to them are a greater danger, because their words and thoughts are both terrifying and true. »
Sarah Dessen (Listen to her)


#41814
« Everyone has their weak spot. You know, the little thing that's going to break you, even if you're the unbreakable type, even if you're careful not to get fooled. For some, it's love. For others, money or alcohol. For me, it was worse: it was math. »
Sarah Dessen (You who have the key...)


#41815
« Perhaps those who have never experienced anything tragic cannot imagine the clouds and storms to come. But for the rest of us, even the brightest ray of sunshine heralds a risk of rain. It is only a matter of time. »
Sarah Dessen (Once and for all)


#41816
« You don't often get a second chance in life. If you can't change your past, change your future. »
Sarah Dessen (Listen to her)


#41817
« I sometimes ran away from my sisters, thinking that loneliness was better. Still, I'm still the sister of the community. Except that today I see things from a different perspective. We need a middle ground. Without him, nothing is complete. It's not just a space in the centre, it's the cement that holds it all together. »
Sarah Dessen (Listen to her)


#41818
« "If you want to know what stuff someone is really made of, look at how they act when no one is watching them. That's where he'll show his true nature." »
Sarah Dessen (The rest of the story)


#41819
« It's easy to quickly become familiar with near-unknowns, don't you think? It's all the more bizarre that people who supposed to know you well don't know you at all. »
Sarah Dessen (See you again one day)


#41820
« Because at least I didn't sit on the side of the road wondering what living means. »

Sarah Dessen


#41824
« "Coup de grace of the 2 o'clock in the morning. The person you can call at 2:00 in the morning, no matter what. Who you can count on. Who will always be there by your side, even if you wake her up, even if it freezes, or even if you have to be released from police custody. That's the maximum on the friendship scale." »
Sarah Dessen (See you again one day)


#41825
« Love is absolutely unpredictable. Sometimes you hang out with someone for years and then boom! You suddenly see it in a different light. And sometimes it's from the first date, from the first few seconds. That's what makes things great! »
Sarah Dessen (That song...)


#41826
« It looked like those upside-down exclamation points placed at the beginning of a sentence in Spanish and whose mere presence augurs something complicated. »
Sarah Dessen (Once and for all)


#41827
« "When you think about it, music is unifying, it has incredible strength. People who express differing opinions about everything sometimes have music in common" »
Sarah Dessen (Listen to her)


#41828
« How do you keep living when you know what can happen? The answer is simple: we don't have a choice. »
Sarah Dessen (Never again)


#41829
« "Seriously. Don't you ever think you'd better keep your mouth shut?" He thought for a second. I said, "No. As I told you, I don't like liars." "You're not lying, you're just being silent. - Show me the difference! - With one, you are openly cheating. With the other, you keep what you think to yourself. - Yes, but there is always deception. In the second case, you are the one who is cheating. Do we agree? I took a few seconds of reflection while he was swallowing up another pretzel. "I don't know," I whispered. - in fact, being silent is worse than lying when you think about it. First of all, you have to tell the truth to yourself. If you can't trust yourself, who will you count on?" »
Sarah Dessen (Listen to her)


#41830

#41834
« - The volume of his voice: Dad never screams that way except when he knows that the person he's talking to is not going to make old bones. At the same time, a slew of insults were heard. " The guy picked up the coconut tree: he's fired," I said. - And you know this because ...? - Dad doesn't often insult people. Even when he lays off. A loud bang was heard. - That's the victim who has to throw something away. Then we heard a bang. - It comes from the back of the kitchens, so the victim is probably a diver. A guy. - A guy. What for? - Because women don't throw away utensils. And because the guys in the kitchen squad are yelling louder than Dad. David looked at me as if I were completely frosted. - Is your decryption a natural gift or is it a given? I shook my head. Downstairs, the silence had returned, this typical silence that follows a layoff: everyone walks on eggshells and stays cautiously away from the boss to avoid contagion, just in case. - Acquired. I grew up in a restaurant. In the long run, you learn to decode signs and noises. »

« -Ah women ... sighed Jean-Michel. Damien wiped his face with the back of his hand and fixed the tar. Women. Indeed, dear lord, they are confusing, too. Ah, the beautiful Julie!" he added eloquently. I felt the red rise to my cheeks, while Lisa, at the front, carried her hand to her mouth. "Beautiful Julie," said Damien, "considered that I was not a valid risk. "Really. -It is true that I am a thug. A scoundrel. A musician. I would have brought him nothing but poverty, shame and bruises on his shins... She was right to leave. Jean-Michel pretended to stick a dagger in his chest. "How cruel these words are, my lord! "Hourrah," agreed Damien. "Hourrah," Jean-Michel repeated. Oh, really. »
Sarah Dessen (That song...)

« "-Julie... -Yeah? - If you want to know if I wondered whether or not I wanted to fall in love with her, the answer is no. Not at all. It just happened. I didn't ask myself any questions. By the time I understood what was going on, it was already too late. I was frozen on the second step. - I don't understand. - What don't you understand? - Everything. He shrugged, turned off the last light of the kitchen, and then came close to me as he went up the stairs. - Don't worry about it. One day you'll understand." »
Sarah Dessen (That song...)

« When my father died I had the feeling that nothing was stable anymore, you understand? From that moment on, doing things best was a reassuring idea. Something to hold on to. Yes, I thought if I could do everything right, then I would be protected. What made things harder, I think, was that after my father died, my mother started freaking out. She's made all her stuff go away. She threw almost everything away. In a way, it was as if he had never been there. »

« Throughout my life, I had always seen my parents in the same, immutable way. One strong, the other weak. One frightened, the other brave.

The goal was to wear what we were capable of and hopefully someone close would be there to help you take the rest. »

« E-mails always start the same way. Hi Audren!! It was the two exclamation points that made me squint. My mother reportedly called them "verbose, excessive and talkative". I found them simply bulky. Inflating like Heidi. Heidi, my mother-in-law. »
Sarah Dessen (On the road to the future)


#41868
« - Listen, Macy. We both know that life is short. Too short to lose a second with someone who doesn't appreciate you at your true value. "The other day," I replied, "you said that life was long. So, is it one or the other? "Both," she shrugns. It all depends on how you choose to live it. It's like eternity, it's constantly changing. "You can't be a thing and its opposite," I said. That's impossible. "No," she replied, squeezing my hand, "what is impossible is to tell ourselves all the time that life is anything but changing." Look, when I was in the hospital, right after my accident, they thought I was going to die. I was really screwed up, the whole thing, what. "Mmm-hmm," said Monica, looking at her sister. "At that moment," continued Kristy, nodding his head, "life is short, literally." But now that I'm getting better, it seems so long that I have to look far, far ahead of me to begin to see the end of it. It's all in the point of view, Macy's is what I meant about eternity. For each of us, our eternity can end in an hour, or a hundred years. You can never be sure, so you might as well give importance every second. Monica, who was lighting a new cigarette, nodded. "Mmm-hmm," she said again. "What you have to decide," Kristy tells me, leaning forward, "is how you want to live your life. If your eternity stopped tomorrow, would you want it to have looked like this? I thought I'd already made that choice. I had just spent the last eighteen months with Jason, adapting my life to his own, trying to do everything I could to secure a place in his perfect world, where everything made sense. But it didn't work. "Look," said Kristy, "the truth is that nothing is certain." You know that better than anyone. She looked me in the back of her eyes, making sure I understood her. That was the case. - So don't be afraid. Start living. Only I could not imagine that we could live without worrying about the dangers that surround us. Especially when the greatest fear we could have had already come true. "It's the same thing," I said. What's going on? - Be afraid and be alive. "No," she said slowly, "and she seemed conscious of speaking a language that I could not understand at the outset, a language whose words themselves, not to mention the ideas they conveyed, were unknown to me. No, Macy. It is not the same thing. »

« Why do you always encounter resistance in those around you when you are convinced that you are right and true? On the contrary, this should smooth out the difficulties and round the corners.

Sarah Dessen (Someone like you)


#41885
« Then I can't say how it happened: was it me who took the first step, or him? What I do know is that we did not meet halfway. But for such a small distance, it's not worth quibbling. And maybe it's not very important, after all. The only important thing is that he was there. »

« But something had changed in me. what? I didn't know that yet. All I knew was that I felt alive for the first time since I was sixteen. I had no idea where Cass was, but she had spoken to me. My sister had come out of the land of dreams to come to meet me, while, standing on my pyramid, half asleep, half staggering in this world in a state of vigil, I stared at the bright and shining stars. »

« When you think about it, music is unifying, it has incredible strength. People who express differing opinions about everything sometimes have music in common. I nodded, not sure what to say to him. "In addition," he continued, telling me that he did not expect a response from me, music is an absolute constant. That's why she and we have an almost visceral bond, you know? A song instantly takes you back to a moment, to a place, to a person. No matter if you or the world around you have changed, this song remains the same as the moment you lived. Which is amazing when you think about it. Stunning, indeed. Like this conversation, the opposite of anything I would have imagined. »

He hugged me and drew me to him. "Tell me, then. "It's Animal," he said simply. Perfectly chemical. -Mmmm, possible. -In any case, it doesn't matter... He slipped a hand into my hair.

A pink suede top, a poem with my first name, a hand in my neck. That's what happens when you try to escape your past.

I had a headache, excruciatingly thirsty, and now I was stuck. The but on my eyes I breathed deeply to try to regain my composure. Don't cry, for pity's sake. You're not like that anymore.

"Look, you're never sure of anything or anyone 100 percent, so you have a choice: hope for the best or expect the worst. When you expect the worst, at least you're never disappointed.

« I never understood the interest of slows. Even in college, I hated the moment when music slows down, slows down, to allow everyone to stick their moist body against another. In normal dances at least, one is not taken hostage, one is not obliged to swing in rhythm against a complete stranger who, because of this sudden closeness feels the right to touch your buttocks and everything within its reach. What a piece of. A hell of a mess. A slow is just an excuse to be able to stick to someone you really want to be close to or, horror, someone you want to see for miles. »

« At that very moment, I understood what she meant. Marriage, like life, was perhaps not just a series of Great Moments, good or bad. Sharing all these little things, day after day, and feeling accompanied, could consolidate the most fragile of the links. »

« I pushed the blankets back and got up. I opened my door. Calm and darkness reigned in the hallway, but as I suspected, a light was visible on the stairs. My father was not yet in bed. As soon as he saw me in the hallway, he turned off the tv. "Hep over there! Don't we sleep? I shook my head. On the screen came the grainy black-and-white images of an old newsletter. Two men singded their hands above a table. Behind them, the crowd applauded. "You're at the peak. I can't choose between this fascinating program about the beginning of the First World War and a report on ecological disasters. What do you think? He changed the channel. A car was slowly passing through a devastated landscape. "I don't know. They both look interesting to me. "Hey, I'm going to have to Don't criticize the story. Both are important. With a smile on my face, I sat on the couch. "You understand that I find it hard to be passionate about the past. "I'm sorry?" Annabelle is neither fiction nor a silly tale imagined by the first comer. These events happened for good - a long time ago, I added. - Exactly. That is my point. That's why we can't forget. No matter how many years have passed, they still affect us and the world around us. If we neglect the past, we never understand the future. It's all connected. Do you get it? At first, I have to admit, I don't. Then I looked at the images that were scrolling and then I knew he was right. The past influenced the present and the future in one way or another. Time was not easily divided; the middle, beginning and end were not predefined. I could always pretend to leave the past behind me, he wouldn't leave me. »

« - Stop, Gus. Seriously! It's not funny at all! - It's true, it's not funny! A little break. -It's absolutely pathetic! Chuckle. - If you rank the service personnel and the kitchen brigade according to this points system, then if you incorporate the evaluations we made, and we start from there, then ... - We will have official confirmation, in numbers, that we have the worst brigade in the whole city! Small "grmpf", followed by a huge laugh. And by the time I entered the kitchen, my father and Opal sat at the table, a pile of papers between them, had died laughing. - What are you two doing? I asked them. Opal took a paper towel to wipe her eyes and tried to answer me, but she began to scream with laughter as she waved her hand in front of her face. Dad, in front of her, was writhing too. - The EAT INC, finally managed to articulate Opal, wants to know what is our weak point. "And the answer," Dad continued between two laughs, "everyone." They left more beautiful, as if they had never heard anything so funny. Hysterical, Opal put both hands on his mouth, his shoulders stirred with tremors, while Dad stood up and tried to catch his breath. - I don't understand your stories. "That's because you haven't spent the last four hours with us," said Dad, panting. - Four hours! Opal raises his hand by tapping the table. And we didn't get anything. Nothing. Zero, nada! My father cried with laughter. I had never seen him in such a state. - Why do you do the evaluations with us? - Impossible at the restaurant, hiccups Opal. She took a deep breath and added: - This is an extremely serious matter! At these words, my father laughed again, throwing his head back, and Opal kissed. I opened the fridge to get something fresh. I was wondering if we didn't have a hilarious gas leak in the shack. "Okay," said Opal, taking another deep breath. It's nerve-s going on. I'm completely slammed. We have to ... (...) Dad grimaced at him, then looked down at the papers in front of him and put his hand on his face. - Well, let's take it back, Opal. That's the situation. I've known Chuckles for a long time. He likes clean and readable formulas and numbers. That is why it uses this evaluation system, which has the merit of being clear and clear. "I have no doubt about it, but unfortunately it leaves no room for the human aspect," Opal replied. Having said that, I am the first to admit that we have a borderline brigade. On a yellow block, under Dad's elbow, was a list of names, each associated with a number. In the margins, there were scribbles and notes. "I think our employees give Luna Blu a flavour and personality that are difficult to quantify," Opal said in a hastily hurry. »

« If I had become Eliza Sweet, in terms of the look, I had remained the same: Eliza looked like me. I was tall, blonde, and I had blue eyes: the prototype of the little American fed good fresh milk and cereal (dixit mom). Total, I had my head to become the cliché of "the most popular girl of her high school". Since I had nothing left to lose in life and I had confidence to spare, I quickly joined the tribe of the big chubby of the high school football team and chic cheerleaders bobos. (...) I continued the game when we moved to Petree, the number 2 city on our itinerary. I called myself Lizbet, and I dated drama-glam romantico-gothic style chicks, and girls looked classical dancers. I wore footless dance tights, black heart masks and drew a blood-red mouth. I had adopted the high bun clenched like a fist. I counted the calories, I made my tragedy; in short, I was directing myself and overplaying my role. It was a very challenging compositional role, far removed from Eliza's character. That's why at Westcott, our last stop before Lakeview, I had fun simply becoming Beth: nice secretary on the high school student council and good girl-scout friend. I wrote for the duck, I took care of the school yearbook and I gave small classes to the kids of the college. Beth was hyperactive and combined extracurricular activities: car washes and cake sales to finance the high school's literary magazine, the focus group or the construction of a sports center for underprivileged children in Honduras (a project initiated by the Spanish club). I was the girl that everyone knows, my reel was everywhere: this incredible popularity would make me even more memorable, once I had vanished. In my old life, and this is the strangest in history, I had never been the ultrasympathetic leader of my high school students, nor a romantic gothic let alone a chic bobo cheerleader. Before, I was just normal. An average girl. I was just Maclean. Maclean is my real name, the one my parents gave me at birth. It's also the name of the best coach of all time on the Defriese basketball team - my parents' college - the team Dad was supporting loud and clear. »

« And then one day, I gathered all my photos and hung them on the walls, fixed around my mirror, and even on the ceiling of my room. I've been watching every face. I learned them by heart, studying their expressions and their nuances. Now frozen, these eyes looked at me: I could read a whole world in it, but although fixed on me, none looked at me. »

« I didn't answer him. I didn't even look back as we walked through the library to win the exit, a lot of eyes pointed at us. In the end, it made sense to me. Not just the fact of leaving, but also the way I did it. No regrets, without anticipating the future. »

« - There is worse than a gray gradient in a relationship. Oh, what's the day. "Yes. What's going on? - Regrets that give the blues and paint everything in black. »

« "Be nice! begged them. I understood the message: kindness was the ideal place where untimely screaming and walls of silence did not terrify you. When we were nice, we avoided arguments of any kind. Be careful, it's not so easy to be nice, especially in a world where treachery is king. »
Sarah Dessen (Listen to her)


#41994
« Sometimes the light or the expression of a face is perfect, and you have the chance to grasp it, but in general, it's pure chance. I was looking at that picture all the time. I wondered what thoughts the girl I saw was hiding... That Catlin looked so cool, sitting on her boyfriend's lap and laughing in her arms. In truth, if it had been any other chick, I would have thought her life was perfect, as I thought Cass' life at home was perfect. But I understood that it was too easy to judge people on appearances »

« What made things harder, I think, was that after my father died, my mother started freaking out. She made all her things disappear. She threw almost everything away. In a way, it was almost as if he had never been there. »
Sarah Dessen (Forever... until tomorrow)


#41997
« The "almost" boyfriends, she sighed. You know, they almost love you, and then almost more. The only thing they are absolutely sure of is that they want to sleep with you. I hate this. »
Sarah Dessen (Forever... until tomorrow)


#41998
« Mom, she says, I'm not trying to annoy you. I'm just saying it's been a year and a half now... and maybe it's time to move on. Dad probably wished you were less unhappy. I am sure of that. »

« The problem with people who know how to listen is that they don't complete your sentences, they don't interrupt you, so your words don't get lost in nature or are altered along the way. No, they're waiting and forcing you to sue. »

« You must really love music, I noticed, eyes fixed on the stacks of CDs. "Not you?" responded by changing his lane. - Yes, I do. Everybody loves music, don't they? No, no, no "No?" - Some people think they love music, but they have no idea what it really is. And then there are those who have a great interest in music but do not listen to the right songs. They're misinformed. I mean, there are people like me. I watched him for a second. He was sitting in his seat, his hair brushing the ceiling, his elbow on the glass, but this time he was still intimidating, but this time because of his build and the intense look he pointed at me for a moment before putting him back on the road. " Like you?" Can you explain it to me? He turned on his flasher and slowed down. In front of me stood my old college. A yellow school bus was coming out of the parking lot. - These are people who live for music and seek it everywhere, wherever it is. Can we imagine a life without music? These people are enlightened. Oh, I don't know. I replied when I did not understand his speech. - When you think about it, music is unifying, it has incredible strength. People who express differing opinions about everything sometimes have music in common. I nodded, not knowing what to say. "In addition," he continued, telling me that he did not expect a response from me, the music is an absolute consistency. That's why she and we have an almost visceral bond, you know? A song instantly takes you back to a moment, to a place, to a person. No matter if you or the world around you have changed, this song remains the same as the moment you lived. Which is amazing when you think about it. »

#42002
« - Seriously ... I skipped classes, I went to little prodigies, but I'm a failure, in relational terms. So I sometimes say particularly stupid things. - You don't have to skip classes for that. I'm an average student with average grades, like B, and I too often slip. - B? He seemed horrified. »

#42003
« The first time after we moved to Montford Falls, my little world had already changed so much that I didn't feel the need to change. So I just changed my first name (...) "My name is Eliza" (...) I had cast my new identity between the daily news about the bahut and the usual instructions, and so messed up, put away, fifteen years of my life to carry out my rebirth, all at a record speed and even before my first hour of class! I don't know what Dad thought ... (...) But he didn't say anything. I think he understood in his own way. We both left the same town and fled the same situation. Dad had been forced to stay Gus Sweet, but I bet he would gladly have changed his identity if he had the opportunity. »

« I understood Harriet. When life is suddenly too beautiful, we are afraid that the universe will restore its good old balance as dry. Happiness attracts unhappiness, what is lost is found, and so on. »

Sarah Dessen (You who have the key...)


#42008
« What she didn't know was that I was suspicious of everyone without exception. Whether it's to ask for my route, to drive me to high school or elsewhere, or to seek an opinion or advice. Okay, it was inflated to be lost, but I had understood for ages that I would rather be completely lost than depend on others to orient myself. This is loneliness, in theory or in principle: you are solely responsible for what falls on you, whether positive, negative or in between. »

« "Macy," she said, "this is John Donald, and Philip." "Macy is currently in between relationships," Kristy said. And I try, but I'm really trying, to show him that there are thousands of possibilities to seize. "These guys," continued Kristy, making a gesture that incorporated the entire table, "are insordible." But they're frankly nice. "That said, the fact that we are insortable," Said John, "did not prevent Kristy from going out with each of us." »

#42015
« All this time wasted moving forward with cautious steps... And yet nothing had changed. So maybe it was better to go into life, at the end of the day. Throw yourself into the pile, even if you have to peel your knees a few times. Anyway, whether I was wise or disorderly, calm or upset, I always came back to the same point. »

« "He's great," Leo continued. He is an Irishman with a very sparse prose but a dense vocabulary, despite everything. The entirety of his first novel takes place over a day in a potato field. And guess what? It is told from the point of view of the plow! »

« - Look at our little Louna, single and ready to join the party! She almost looks like a real teenager! he exclaimed, radiantly, before looking at my mother with an emotional air. I've been waiting for this day for so many years! - Stop... I'm going to cry! begged my mother, who pretended to wipe her eyes. "It's not over soon, is it?" I cried, which provoked another outburst of hilarity. Come on, I'm going! -You are young, and at night you reach out! "Carpe Diem"! sang one as I entered the patio. - Missed, William, it means "day" ... corrected the other. - "Carpe" nuiem, then! »

« - I'm not asking for the moon: just a nice guy. You know what I mean? A nice, nice boy, like in all those romantic comedies I know by heart. It must exist for real, doesn't it? Why do I ever run into them? »

« "I would eat something good," said Irv. And hearty. - Carrot sticks? Tofu? Vegetable chips, perhaps? Irv, who was inspecting a series of jars filled with spices, slowly turned his head towards Mac.

« He took my existential anxieties very seriously, convinced that he had deranged his daughter for good, that he had ruined my life for the long term. On the contrary, he had done nothing else since my birth than to hold me at arm's length, to do everything in his power to protect me. And this, even - what I say, especially - when the rest of my world was falling apart. »
Sarah Dessen (The rest of the story)


#42024
« Many words had been used throughout the years to describe my mother, both before and after her death in 2013. "Sublime," it was often said, and just after "lit," or its more magnanimous, "passionate" equivalent. We also sometimes added "upsetting," "exquisite" and "full of spirit." But they were just words. My mother had never been a simple combination of letters. »
Sarah Dessen (The rest of the story)


#42025
« In life, there are events that are auspicious and those that portend the worst. Of course, for my grandmother as well as for me, the change that was coming was clearly in the first of these two categories. After my father and Tracy married, I was going to move in with them in the new house they had just bought near my high school. Nana would finally find her apartment. She could well tell anyone who wanted to hear her that she didn't care about being disturbed... I knew that the comings and goings of his two cumbersome roommates—his son and granddaughter, still a teenager—would not really miss him. »

« "Who knows what the future holds? We walk alone in the woods when suddenly the landscape changes and we see in the distance an extraordinary thing, unexpected, almost magical, that we would never have found if we had not shown perseverance: a new friend that we feel we have always known, an unforgettable memory, even - who knows? A carousel. » »

« No one knew where I was. Absolutely no one... That's exactly what I wanted. At least, that's what I thought, because I quickly realized that it was also the total anguish of being enveloped by this deafening silence born of my loneliness. »

« But at the same time I looked up at the sky and spotted a triangle-shaped constellation. I saw Mom again, on the terrace of her huge villa.

So, even though it was difficult, I didn't take my legs to my neck. »

It was unimaginable to think that there were passengers inside and that there were people in the house next door, and in the house next door to the house next door. In the space of that minute, there were thousands of events around the world, and it never stopped. No wonder you need to sleep to take a break. »

« I would never be able to confess to him, but Phil inspired me. These little lies of nothing at all that I told every day, these silences that I imposed on myself, those occasions when I was not very honest ... idly jumped at me now.

« My sister always spoke. Despite the tears, I could hear him swear to me that everything would be fine. I knew she believed in it with all her soul. But I was also sure of one thing: it was easier to get lost than to find or find yourself. I understood better now why we were always looking and why we rarely find: there are so many locks and so few keys. »

« - Well, and now..." He slipped closer to me. "Let's say I'm your mother. "I'm sorry?" "I am your mother," he repeated. Tell me you want to quit modeling. I blushed like a peony. - I can't do it. - Why? Is that too hard to believe? Do you think I'm a bad actor? - No, it's just that... - Because I'm good. Everyone wanted me to be his mother in the band. »

« - Amazing, your childhood both. "No, sad," replied Deb with simplicity. (...) - We were always broke in my house, and my parents didn't get along. Like my life, it was a big deal, I liked inventing others. She had never talked so much about her family. "Well ...," I said only. David shrugged. - I just loved the great historical battles. - Everyone loves them! Deb, who was already active, said. »

« "It must be hard to be always new," he finally said. - Bof. Not much. (...) "At the same time," said David, "I like the idea of constantly starting from scratch: every time, you are like in front of a blank page. And at least you don't have to explain yourself all the time. - That's right. No one knows that Gerv the Perv was once your best friend. Or that you were the issue of a fight between girls, because of a love triangle. - Or that your parents' divorce was downright atrocious. I looked at him, speechless. "Sorry, Maclean, but that's what you were trying to get at, right?" Not at all. If that was the case, it was unintentional. - We needed to take off, Dad and I. It's been good for us. - To live in the temporary? - To make a fresh start! Finally, four ... »

« I was embarrassed, yet there was nothing. I was pretty proud that we only had the minimum. It made our moves easier. David was opening another closet. Empty. - Maclean, your kitchen is completely empty! -But we have everything we need, I swear. He seemed skeptical. "Finally, except thyme," I said. Look, my dad works at the restaurant and we don't cook much at home. - You don't even have glass dishes! How do you do if you have to cook a chicken or a roast? - I buy a tray in aluminum, pardi! New look stunned. What's going on? I resumed. Have you ever packed glass dishes? They're chipping, or worse, breaking! (...) - Don't take this the wrong way, but I think it's sad. -No, why? It's organized. - You're talking about an excuse. It's like you're on the way out all the time. (...) - Anything. -I'm serious, Maclean. Is that how it is all over your house? I mean, if I open the drawers in your room, I'll only see two pairs of jeans, right? - No way you're opening my drawers, but the answer is no. Anyway, if you're interested, we had more stuff before. But every time we moved, I realized that we were using almost nothing, so I limited. (...) - Have you moved often? He asked me. - Not too much. As he did not seem convinced, I added: - I have been living with Dad for two years ... and this is our fourth shack, I believe. - Four cities in two years? - Obviously, said like that ... »

« - If I understand correctly, you want to fire Leo? Dad looked down at his yellow block. - According to Chuckles's formula, yes. Given our results, Leo and everyone at the top of our list should leave. Opal growled and pushed his chair away as if to get up. - But they're not numbers! They are individuals, with qualities! - Leo can't even tell the difference between yoghurt and sour cream! ... Look, Opal, I'm doing my job. If something or someone doesn't work, you have to change it. - Like buns? Dad sighed. - It was an extra cost. Their preparation took too long for a mediocre profit. We were losing money. "I thought they were good," she said in a low voice. "Me too," said Dad. Opal looked at him in surprise. "Oh, that's it?" "Yes. - I thought you liked fried dill pickles? Dad shook his head. - You talk, he hates pickles! I answered. "Especially fried," Dad added. Opal was speechless. - It's not about my personal desires, it's about the profitability of the restaurant. You take the situation too closely, Opal. -You know, Gus, I could never do that. - Expand. She showed him her block. - Landing somewhere, making tons of changes that annoy everyone and, finally, turn around. Not to mention all the time and work you put into it and then go back elsewhere, your mission is over. - It's a job like any other. "I get it. (...) How do you not get attached to the people who work in the restaurants where you are parachuted? I was burning to hear Dad's answer. "In truth, it is not always easy," he said after a silence. But I myself owned a restaurant for several years. I put myself into a lot of effort, and it was difficult. It's worse when you're a manager. - I understand you ... I've loved Luna Blu since I was a teenager. I put my heart into it! He beats to the rhythm of this restaurant, you know! "That's why we have to put all the odds on the side of the Luna Blu," Dad continued. Even at the cost of difficult decisions. »

« - So, with David? "Tell," Riley asked (...) I swallowed. I was expecting his question. - Oh, we were just together at the game. (...) Silence. - I'm sorry if I made you uncomfortable the other night, you know, when we talked outside your house. - You didn't make me uncomfortable! - That's because ... She looked down on her hands, then opened them by spreading her fingers on her knees. - With David, I'm like a chicken with his chick, you know? I don't want him to suffer. - He told me you were his only friend when he arrived in Jackson. "That's right. Then he met Ellis on the first day (...) Riley looked up at the sky. - That said, David should never have hung out with me. It was my fault that he started going to parties and taking initiatives that made his parents anxious. He would have been less screwed up if he had hung out with Ellis. - You and Ellis are not friends? - Now I do. Thanks to David. Ellis, he's cool (...) Frankly, he's the perfect buddy for David, not me. - I'm not sure. I feel like you're a great friend to him. Oh, what's the day. I nodded. She smiles. - I try to be, in any case, even if it is sometimes a little selfish. That's my neurotic mother hen side. Not just with David, with everyone. I might as well tell you it makes my life a lot more difficult! (...) - Simplicity can be boring too, you know. - Example? - How to say ... In the last two years, I have moved a lot, so I don't have many friends. It's easier, but on the other hand, it's a lot of loneliness. Why had I been so outspoken? Because of the blow I had just taken in the face? "Do you think you're going to be around for a long time?" said Riley with interest. - No idea. (...) - Here it's different: you've made friends. »

« - It's normal for you to see your mother. - I know, but ... - You don't need to justify yourself or make excuses, do we agree? - Nevertheless, I feel bad. - Why? (...) - Because of what she did to you ... It's really ... disgusting, I pronounced with difficulty. It is hypocritical of him to act as if nothing had happened. (...) "What happened between me and your mother is only about her and me," he said, detaching each of the syllables. Our relationship with you has nothing to do with it. I'm not offended or offended because you see your mother, and vice versa. Is that clear? I nodded and looked down on the table. I knew this speech by heart: Mom held the same one, at the word. Except that, in real life, you can't divide a family into two parts, mom on one side, dad on the other, and the child at the center who also has to split. It's the same when you tear a sheet of paper in half: you try to put the pieces back together, you'll always see the dividing line. »

« I locked in me this strange feeling of both feeling the world slipping under my feet and a hand in mine, and knowing that if I fell, at least, I would not fall alone... »

« I think this party is stupid, manipulated by the card manufacturers who flood the market with stupid wishes! Harriet told me when, an hour later, completely flat, I sat on the stool of the crate to rest. If you really love someone, you have to show them every day, not just on February 14th, that's all. »

« But risk is part of romantic relationships. Sometimes it works, sometimes it screws up, it's life. »

« The worst part is that Mom was found after I broke up with Ben. It's like fate is pulling my tongue out. Maybe it was my karma to have only a small number of people at the same time in my life? Mum would come back, Ben would walk away, one door would open, another would close. There you go. »
