"Never expect someone to respect your feelings because you respected theirs. Never expect someone not to hurt you because you would never hurt them."
"Do something instead of killing time, because time is killing you."
"Isn’t it time to acknowledge the ugly side? I’ve grown quite weary of the spunky heroines, brave rape victims, soul-searching fashionistas that stock so many books. I particularly mourn the lack of female villains — good, potent female villains. Not ill-tempered women who scheme about landing good men and better shoes (as if we had nothing more interesting to war over), not chilly WASP mothers (emotionally distant isn’t necessarily evil), not soapy vixens (merely bitchy doesn’t qualify either). I’m talking violent, wicked women. Scary women. Don’t tell me you don’t know some. The point is, women have spent so many years girl-powering ourselves — to the point of almost parodic encouragement — we’ve left no room to acknowledge our dark side. Dark sides are important. They should be nurtured like nasty black orchids."

"I sleep in late when I feel depressed and I still don’t know what I want to be. Sometimes I forget to eat and other times I eat everything to keep from feeling empty. I’m that age where I’m not quite an adult but I’m expected to act like one and I don’t know how to do that. I’m lost. I’m unturned pages in an attic someplace and I just want to go back to sleep."
"There are times in life where you feel invincible until you meet that one person who makes your heart feel as though it got blown up into flames. And you’re melting like candle wax because they have broken down the barriers that surrounded your soul."
"Your heart is the size of an ocean.
Go find yourself in its hidden depths."
"Fuck you. You don’t know what it’s like in my head."

"I’m your girl,” she said in the dark. “Your girl. No matter what I’m always your girl."
