Okay, I hate talking about myself so here goes - I'll give you a compilation of quotes instead (whoever you are).

A quiet belief in angels." A quiet belief in angels (R.J. Ellory)
"I won't say good-bye. I said it to you when it meant something. I said it when it was sad and lonely and final." The long good-bye (Raymond Chandler)
"That was the way with ghosts, though: they appeared at the strangest of times in the most peculiar places." I am half-sick of shadows (Alan Bradley)
"...We will leave this place and not come back and in our dreams it will turn to dust." Eden Close (Anita Shreve)
" 'Your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.' And of those two which are the more powerful? Dreams are not destructive. but visions can open new worlds to you - and visions can also destroy the worlds that already exist..." - Passenger to Frankfurt (Agatha Christie)
"I am haunted by humans." The Book Thief (Markus Zusak)
"And given one [life, we wish for two, or three, or more, so easily forgetting the one we had was spent unwisely." A quiet belief in angels
"Other men look up and down, left and right... but men like us are different. We are visionaries." Airman (Eoin Colfer)
"There was once a boy named Milo who didn't know what to do with himself - not just sometimes but always." The phantom tollbooth

"We meet again, Spider-Man she said. And I replied How many people have you saved today, Girl M. she pretended to count on her fingers. Nine hundred and thirty-seven she shrugged. It's been a quiet day. We started to giggle. How about you, Spider-Man. I scratched my head. Eight hundred and thirteen I said. But I started late and finished early." My sister lives on the mantelpiece (Annabel Pitcher)

“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.” The Catcher in the rye (J.D. Salinger)
“Certain things, they should stay the way they are. You ought to be able to stick them in one of those big glass cases and just leave them alone.”
“I don't exactly know what I mean by that, but I mean it.”
“I can be quite sarcastic when I'm in the mood.”
“I don't even know what I was running for—I guess I just felt like it.”
“Every time you mention some guy that's strictly a bastard— very mean, or very conceited and all— and when you mention it to the girl, she'll tell you he has an inferiority complex. Maybe he has, but that still doesn't keep him from being a bastard, in my opinion.”
“Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first one who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior.”
“…the sun only comes out when it feels like coming out.”

'You can shoot all the bluejays you like if you can hit 'em; but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.' To Kill a Mockingbird (Harper Lee)
“There are many types of monsters that scare me: Monsters who cause trouble without showing themselves, monsters who abduct children, monsters who devour dreams, monsters who suck blood... and then, monsters who tell nothing but lies. Lying monsters are a real nuisance: They are much more cunning than others. They pose as humans even though they have no understanding of the human heart; they eat even though they've never experienced hunger; they study even though they have no interest in academics; they seek friendship even though they do not know how to love. If I were to encounter such monsters, I would likely be eaten by them... because in truth, I am that monster.”
Anyway... I guess I need to write something else as well. Okay...
Well, this is awkward...
