Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
“Libraries were full of ideas. Perhaps the most dangerous and powerful weapons.”
– Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
 “Never let them take what you’re not willing to give.”

 “There’s a part of everyone that needs to be taken care of. Denying it 
exists doesn’t change the truth. It only makes you very lonely.”

I was, but I told him no. No, there’s something wonderful in not knowing.”

 “There’s no way to avoid regret. Don’t let anybody tell you different.

gonna wonder if you shoulda done things different. I didn’t 
necessarily choose wrong, I just chose.”
– A Different Blue by Amy Harmon
 “A person sick with cancer has the support of the community. 
Everyone bonds together and tries to help. Friends organize bake sales 
and blood drives. Next door neighbors bring tuna casseroles to the

they keep away. The families are embarrassed so they hide. They pretend 
that their son or daughter has gone abroad or is busy at school. 
Anything to avoid telling the truth.”
– Your Voice is All I Hear by Leah Scheier
 “You could rattle the stars, if only you dared.”

  1. These are great quotes, but what I love even more is the calligraphy! Did you write all of them? Those colors! They're so pretty to look at! I have what is appropriately called a chicken scrawl so I go crazy over beautiful fonts and lettering. <3

  2. I love these beautiful quotes – everything is SOOO pretty. 🙂

    Also, seeing Sarah J. Maas' makes me (again) aware I've yet to read this epic series. Loved Katie's too. I'd like to read her new series at some point as well. 🙂

    Thanks so much for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon. I appreciate it. 🙂
