Quotes From "Pandemonium (Delirium, #2)"

"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 that second, then you would live forever."
"The flip side of freedom is this: When you're completely free, you're also completely on your own."
"I wonder if this is how people always get close: They heal each other's wounds; they repair the broken skin."
"If you’re smart, you care. And if you care, you love."
"But you can build a future out of anything. A scrap, a flicker. The desire to go forward, slowly, one foot at a time. You can build an airy city out of ruins."
"But...books are so much more. Some of them are webs; you can feel your way along their threads, but just barely, into strange and dark corners. Some of them are balloons bobbing up through the sky: totally self-contained, and unreachable, but beautiful to watch.
And some of them―the best ones―are doors."
"Love, the deadliest of all deadly things.
It kills you.
When you have it.
And when you don't.
"That's the thing: We didn't really care. A world without love is also a world without stakes."
