Quotes about tying

1. People have to forgive. We don't have to like them, we don't have to be friends with them, we don't have to send them hearts in text messages, but we have to forgive them, to overlook, to forget. Because if we don't we are tying rocks to our feet, too much for our wings to carry!
- C. JoyBell C.

- Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

- Bret Easton Ellis, Lunar Park
