The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

"If you let people into your life a little bit, they can be pretty damn amazing."

"If you're good at it, and you love it, and it helps you navigate the river of the world, then it can't be wrong."

"If you care about something enough, it's going to make you cry.  But you have to use it.  Use your tears.  Use your pain.  Use your fear.  Get mad.  Arnold, get mad."

The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

"The truth is, we all thought of giving up at some point that winter, more often than you could imagine.  And maybe we would have, if we hadn't had each other, but it was something, having the five of us, knowing we weren't alone."

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

"For you, a thousand times over."

"It was only a smile, nothing more.  It didn't make everything right.  It didn't make ANYTHING all right.  Only a smile.  A tiny thing.  A leaf in the woods, shaking in the wake of a startled bird's flight.  But I'll take it.  With open arms.  Because when spring comes, it melts the snow one flake at a time, and maybe I just witnessed the first flake melting."
