PUSHING THE LIMITS von Katie McGarry
Failure is your only enemy. The only way up is to never look down. We succeed because we believe. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
„I’ve already lost a piece of my mind. I can’t trust you with what’s left.“
„It doesn’t get better,“ I said. „The pain. The wounds scab over and you don’t always feel like a knife is slashing through you. But when you least expect it, the pain flashes to remind you you’ll never be the same.“
„It’s like I have this large black hole in my brain and it’s sucking the life out of me. The answers are in there so I sit for hours and stare. No matter how hard and long I look, I only see darkness.“
The worst type of crying wasn’t the kind everyone could see – the wailing on street corners, the tearing at clothes. No, the worst kind happened when your soul wept and no matter what you did, there was no way to comfort it.
„Because growing up means making though choices, and doing the thing doesn’t necessarily mean doing the thing that feels good.“
HOW TO SAVE A LIFE von Sara Zarr

Before I Fall von Lauren Oliver
It’s a good feeling, though: the feeling of knowing anything can happen. Most of the time nothing does, of course. Most of the time one night blends into the next, and weeks blend into weeks, and months into other months. And sooner or later we all die. But at the beginning of the night anything’s possible.
If you repeat something enough, you can almost make yourself believe it.
But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is, you never really know.
So many things become beautiful when you really look.
Do a good thing and something bad happens. Do a bad thing and something good happens. Do nothing and everything explodes.
