"Meeting your soul mate is like walking into a house you've been in before — you will recognize the furniture, the pictures on the wall, the books on the shelves, the contents of drawers: You could find your way around in the dark if you had to."

THEALCHEMISTWORDS

“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”

I always felt like I was in a story, yes, but not like I was the author of it, or like I had any say in its telling whatsoever.” 
“Remember how it was when we kissed? Armfuls and armfuls of light thrown right at us. A rope dropping down from the sky. How can the word love and the word life even fit in the mouth?”
