All quotes from 'Plain Truth' by Jodi Picoult
"It was supposed to be a love movie - such a funny concept, for a two hour movie. Love wasn't supposed to be about a moment where you looked into a boy's eyes and felt the world spin from beneath your feet; when you saw in his soul all the things that were missing from yours. Love came slow and surefooted and was made of equal measure of comfort and respect."
"You can be happy for someone else's good fortune, but that doesn't mean you forget your own bad luck."
"It's hard to change the way you've always thought about things."
"You're unwilling to go out on a limb because it just might break underneath you."
