“There were moments, of course. Those small spaces in time, too soon gone, when everything seems to stand still, and existence is balanced on a perfect point, like the moment of change between the dark and the light, and when both and neither surround you.”
“Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things,
just sit still and let the world exist in front of you
sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes
and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second.
And if you somehow found a way to live in that second,
then you would live forever.”
(Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium)
“Life is made up of a few moments all strung together like pearls.
Each moment is a pearl, and it is up to us to pick the ones with the highest luster.
If we do not have time to do great things,
take a few gentle moments and do small things in a great way.”
