Another classic bad boy from Gaskell! She knows how to make you want them!!!

Bad boys in the classics—my cup of tea. Gaskell awesomeness!

A woman knows where her heart is even when denied. -Edith Gaskell knows her stuff, ladies!!!!

Edith Gaskell quoted. Or rather, her world.

This quote tends to carry over in many of her books. I feel this relates to many in the world, be it love, hate, or just plain conversation with others.

Advice to ponder…what if we just relaxed….

It is difficult to allow acceptance that a little girl could grow up, and die, in Hitler’s wrath…and still think people are good.

But it is easy to accept that she knew there is both good and evil in the world. And that good could still win out even if she herself would not. 

“Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.”

—Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

If you haven’t read Lord of the Flies, you are missing true adventure and a sickening heartache for mankind and what it can do to each other.

Even in today’s world, the proverbial death of Piggy seems to happen everyday when I read the news. 

“Ralph wept for the end of innocence, the darkness of man’s heart, and the fall through the air of the true, wise friend called Piggy.”

—William Golding, Lord of the Flies

Sad admittance, but a very true one.

“When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time — the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers.”

—John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

Stay Gold! Advice to take with you and remember when someone has you feeling your worst.

“Stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold.”

—S. E. Hinton, The Outsiders
