I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.

Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

I was never a prolific reader but I do enjoy a good book. I have only stayed up until dawn with a book from one author Ė yeah he will be missed by me. R.I.P.

Your beliefs donít make you a better person, your behavior does.

I remember reading hunt for red October when I was a kid. My grandfather and I were so excited to go see it in the theater and compare notes with the book. He was a great writer and left me with a great memory.
