"I’ve seen most of what there is to be afraid of in this world, and to tell you the truth, the worst of them are the ones that make you afraid in the light. The things that your eyes see plainly and can’t forget are worse than huddled black figures left to the imagination. Imagination has a poor memory; it slinks away and goes blurry. Eyes remember for much longer."
Kendare Blake (Anna Dressed In Blood)
Like a firefly in the dark, you glow then, disappear.
"Somewhere inside me is a merciful, forgiving person. Somewhere there is a girl who tries to understand what people are going through, who accepts that people do evil things and that desperation leads them to darker places than they ever imagined. I swear she exists, and she hurts for the repentant boy I see in front of me. But if I saw her, I wouldn’t recognize her."
Veronica Roth (Divergent)
"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light."
"Happy is the heart that still feels pain
Darkness drains and light will come again.."
Ingrid Michaelson (Everybody)
