Neil Gaiman: “Even dreams…”

Quote

“Hearts may break, but hearts are the toughest of muscles, able to pump for a lifetime, seventy times a minute, and scarcely falter along the way. Even dreams, the most delicate and intangible of things, can prove remarkably difficult to kill.”

Neil Gaiman: “They don’t teach you anything worth knowing”

Quote

“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school.

They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying.

They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”

— Neil Gaiman [from “The Sandman”, volume 9]
