Just look at the world around you
Right here on the ocean floor
Such wonderful things surround you
What more are you lookin’ for?
Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire.
She is as deadly as fire itself.
2 weeks pass.
2 weeks of dresses and showers and food I want to throw across the room. 2 weeks of Warner smiling and touching my waist, laughing and guiding the small of my back, making sure I look my best as I walk beside him. He thinks I’m his trophy. His secret weapon.
I have to stifle the urge to crack his knuckles into concrete.
― Juliette & Warner; Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi.
“Promise me we’ll stay together, okay?” His eyes are once again the clear blue of a perfectly transparent pool. They are eyes to swim in, to float in, forever. “You and me.” “I promise,” I say. .”
― Pandemonium, Lauren Oliver.
“I’ve developed a reputation as cold, unfeeling monster who fears nothing and cares for less. But this is all very deceiving. Because the truth is, I am nothing but a coward.”
― Destroy Me, Tahereh Mafi.
“I only know now that the scientists are wrong. The world is flat. I know because I was tossed right off the edge and I’ve been trying to hold on for 17 years. I’ve been trying to climb back up for 17 years but it’s nearly impossible to beat gravity when no one is willing to give you a hand.”
― Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi.
People are looking at you, Katniss. You’ve given them an opportunity.
They just have to be brave enough to take it.
