Delirium by Lauren Oliver
"The deadliest of all things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."
"Mama, Mama, put me to bed
I won't make it home, I'm already half-dead.
I met an Invalid, and fell for his art
He showed me his smile, and went straight for my heart."
"Maybe this is the secret to talking to boys—maybe you just have to be angry all the time."
"Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you—sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second, And if you somehow found a way to live in the second, then you would live forever."
"Take it from me: If you hear the past speaking to you, feel it tugging at your back and running its fingers up your spine, the best thing to do—the only thing—is run."
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me—such bullshit."
"I want to curl up inside of him and be carried there forever."
