An Abundance of Quotes Part 6

I'm in school at the moment, so no quotes from the new book. :(
That's good, though, because it gives me the chance to clean out my feeds in preparation for delving into some of those.

#1 is just a pretty image:

“The way the sun is right now, with the long shadows and that kind of bright, soft light you get when the sun isn’t quite setting? That’s the light that makes everything better, everything prettier, and today, everything just seemed to be in that light.” - John Green

#2 is some satire for you:

"Another possible source of guidance for teenagers is television, but television's message has always been that the need for truth, wisdom and world peace pales by comparison with the need for a toothpaste that offers whiter teeth *and* fresher breath." - Dave Barry
#3 gave me my first laugh of the day (when I read it before 7 am):
"Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm schizophrenic, and so am I." - Oscar Levant

And #4 is motivational/inspirational:

"Every exit is an entry somewhere else." - Tom Stoppard

Exams: 1 down, 3 to go

I won't have another English class until August. :(

I intend to put together a new set of query packets this weekend, and go to the post office after the library on Monday. (Because if I'm going to be driving home, I get to choose where we stop on the way there- mwa haha)
I feel like I haven't touched The Clockwork Experiment in ages. I feel like it's time for a re-read/edit, especially since a few more people have/are currently making their way through it. 
Is it weird that I miss the book I wrote?

  1. No, If you really like your character then they become like old friends, and you want to see them again.
