"'Why the fuck not me?' should be your motto."
"Teenage girls, please don’t worry about being super popular in high school, or being the best actress in high school, or the best athlete. Not only do people not care about any of that the second you graduate, but when you get older, if you reference your successes in high school too much, it actually makes you look kind of pitiful, like some babbling old Tennessee Williams character with nothing else going on in her current life. What I’ve noticed is that almost no one who was a big star in high school is also big star later in life. For us overlooked kids, it’s so wonderfully fair."
"And, hey. You. Thanks for being the kind of person who likes to pick up a book. That’s a genuinely great thing. I met a librarian recently who said she doesn’t read because books are her job and when she goes home, she just wants to switch off. I think we can agree that that’s as creepy as hell. Thank you for seeking out stories, the kind that take place in your brain."
"But if these years have taught me anything it is this: you can never run away. Not ever. The only way out is in."
"Whoever fasts Ramadan out of faith and hope for reward, his past sins will be forgiven."
— Prophet Muhammed on the authority of Abu Hurayrah, Recorded by al-Bukhari (no.1901) and Muslim (no.760).
