A Quote by Eggers on love, waiting, and what is the what

"If i ever love again, I will not wait to love as best i can. We thought we were young and that there would be time to love well sometime in the future. This is a terrible way to think. It is no way to live, to wait to love."

A Quote by Elizabeth Berg on wanting, empty center, light, waiting, happiness, and joy

The heart of myself has always been something just wanting so bad.  I have had an empty center, black as a basement, but also knowing about light and waiting.  Young as I am, I know now that everything is about to come.  Jimmy will be the place for me to learn the real happiness.  He will be my Joy School.  My joy.  Mine.
