"You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit."
"Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room."
"If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine."
