“Dear friend, You are not a freak. You are wanted. You are necessary. You are the only you there is. Don’t be afraid to leave the castle. It’s a great big world out there. Love, a fellow reader”

“It was precisely these scenes he missed the most from his own life with Willem, the forgettable, in-between moments in which nothing seemed to be happening but whose absence was singularly unfillable.”

“Name one hero who was happy."
          I considered. Heracles went mad and killed his family; Theseus lost his bride and father; Jason's children and new wife were murdered by his old; Bellerophon killed the Chimera but was crippled by the fall from Pegasus' back.
          "You can't." He was sitting up now, leaning forward.
          "I can't."
          "I know. They never let you be famous AND happy." He lifted an eyebrow. "I'll tell you a secret."
          "Tell me." I loved it when he was like this.
          "I'm going to be the first." He took my palm and held it to his. "Swear it."
          "Why me?"
          "Because you're the reason. Swear it."
          "I swear it," I said, lost in the high color of his cheeks, the flame in his eyes.
          "I swear it," he echoed.
          We sat like that a moment, hands touching. He grinned.
          "I feel like I could eat the world raw.”

“Thinking about history makes me wonder how I’ll fit into it one day, I guess. And you too. I kinda wish people still wrote like that. History, huh? Bet we could make some.”

“Friendship, companionship: it so often defied logic, so often eluded the deserving, so often settled itself on the odd, the bad, the peculiar, the damaged.”

“It was only the other night everything was fine and the next thing I know I'm
          drowning. How many times can a man go down and still be alive? I
          can't breathe”
          ― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
