"What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?"
"I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism, and demands of any nature. I have lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me, and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty, and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or word of of encouragement. exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. and on top of everything, I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience."
"You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it to you."
"No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful."
"That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air … Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer."
"If you are lucky enough to find a weirdo never let them go"
