I've never really thought about it before, but it's a miracle how many kinds of light there are in the world, how many skies: the pale brightness of spring, when it feels like the hole world's blushing; the lush, bright boldness of a July noon; purple storm skies and a green queasiness just before lightning strikes and crazy multicoloured sunsets that look like someone's acid trip.
- Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall
Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed.

- Colleen Hoover, Ugly Love
