Persuasion

“There is hardly any personal defect”, replied Anne, “which a agreeable manner might not gradually reconcile one to”.
“I think very differently”, answered Elizabeth, shortly; “an agreeable manner may set off handsome features, but can never alter plain ones”.

———-

Mr Elliot was rational, discreet, polished,- but he was not open. There was never any burst of feeling, any warm,th of indignation or delight, at the evil or good of others. This, to Anne, was a decided imperfection. Her early impresions were incurable. She prized the frank, the open-hearted, the eager character beyond all others. Warmth and enthusiansm did captivate her still. She felt thet she could so much more depend upon the sincerity of those who sometimes looked or said a careless or a hasty thing, than of those whose presence of mind never varied, whose tongue never slipped.

“Poor Fanny! she would not have forgotten him so soon!”
“No,” replied Anee, in a low feeling voice. “That I can easily believe”.
“It was not in her nature. She doated on him”.
“It would not be the nature of any woman who truly loved.”

Persuasion. Jane Austen.

Crónicas

Debes de ser muy sabio si dices que no es posible antes de haberlo intentado.

Mientras sigas guardando tu mente en la misma funda que tu espada, cometerás los mismos errores. Al principio por orgullo y honor. Más tarde, por dolor y venganza.

-¿Crees que le gustaría esta pieza?
-Es demasiado valiosa y no tengo dinero para pagártela.
-Sólo es cristal… el cristal está hecho de arena y la arena es el material más barato del mundo.

-Él sabe que no sé leer- protestó Taiba con la nota apretada contra su pecho.
-Yo te la leeré -ofreció Adara.
-Pero tal vez sea…, bueno, personal -objetó Taiba.
-Te prometo que no escucharé -dijo Adara sin el mínimo atisbo de sonrisa.

El miedo es una especie de herida, en ocasiones más grave y profunda que las reales.

Farseer

“You but put your finger on the spot where I had been pressing myself the most. Sometimes  a man doesn’t know how badly he’s hurt until someone else probes the wound.”

“There is no more slippery task than to refrain from thinking of something.”

“A scar is never the same as good flesh, but it stops the bleeding.”

Assassin’s Quest- 3rd book of the Farseer trilogy- by Robin Hobb

El tiempo te enseña

Y el tiempo te enseña;
que nunca debes olvidar de dónde vienes,
que a veces perdiendo se ganan cosas,
y no siempre ganan los buenos.
Que el destino no baila con nadie,
que el miedo es el rey de los finales,
que los consejos deben servirte
para que hagas lo que te de la gana.
Que equivocarse es salud,
que el pasado no es un arma de destrucción masiva
y sí un aprendizaje que te hará mejor persona.
Que la vida no es un cuento
y que aunque duela,
a veces querer no es suficiente.

Love in the Present Tense

“I still remember my first lesson about love. Not forever love, but the other kind, the kind people use every day. The kind that only works with grown-ups. The kind that always seems to self-destruct after a while.”

-“Years later I developed the simplest litmus test of all (…) If it takes you apart, that’s not love. Love puts you back together.”

-“A little boy takes what he wants when he wants it. A grown man knows how much pain he’s willing to cause for his own pleasure. It’s a sign of maturity. Prioritizing somebody else’s pain over your own satisfaction.”

-“I was hoping my actions would speak to that, (…) I was hoping you might guess”.
-“It’s not something anyone should ever be required to guess about,” I say. “It helps to be told”

-“I think if you walked every minute of somebody’s life in his shoes then everything he did would make sense to you, even the bad things.” 

Love in the Present Tense by Catherine Ryan Hyde
