"I swear conversation is such hard work!"
"True compassion is about not bruising the other person's self-respect."
"A person who's looking at a mountain far away doesn't notice the prettiness of a dandelion in front of them. A person who's looking at a dandelion in front of them doesn't see the beauty of a mountain far away."

This time Simon excused himself from who he was talking to and started toward me, Trevor and the apostles in tow. I know it's not logical; I know it's not even physically possible-but I swear on all that is holy, they walked in slow motion. Like in some kind of action movie.

If such things have not been part of your own experience, you probably won't understand what Bastian did next.”
“Wishes cannot be summoned up or kept away at will. They come from deeper within us than good or bad intentions. And they spring up unannounced.”
“There were thousands and thousands of forms of joy in the world, but that all were essentially one and the same, namely, the joy of being able to love.”
