- Roald Dahl, Matilda

2. Maybe mistakes are what make our fate... without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart... and if you're very lucky, a plane ride away
- Candace Bushnell, Sex and the City

3. To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God.

- Timothy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God
