Quotes by Anthony Doerr

"Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever."

"Don’t you want to be alive before you die?"

"But it is not bravery; I have no choice. I wake up and live my life. Don't you do the same?"

"So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?"

"Time is a slippery thing: lose hold of it once, and its string might sail out of your hands forever."
