Words to Live By from Cammie McGovern

“Happiness looks different to different people.”
Cammie McGovern, author of A Step Toward Falling and Say What You Will, is the YA author we’d most like to hire as our life coach. Her novels are full of profound and life changing quotes. Here are a few of our favorites!

“Happiness looks different to different people.”

“What you are watching is a love story, though it might take a while for you to figure that out, because this is what happens with the best love stories sometimes. No one realizes they’re happening in the beginning.”

“Love isn’t about looking perfect to the other person. It’s about being able to show your imperfections.”

“I don’t know if I’ll ever understand why my instincts failed to do what my brain knew was right.”

“Friendships are complicated. Friends have power. Friends can break your heart.”

“I’ve decided that it’s possible to love someone for entirely selfless reasons, for all of their flaws and weaknesses, and still not succeed in having them love you back. It’s sad, perhaps, but not tragic, unless you dwell forever in the pursuit of their elusive affections.”

“This feeling will pass, the fear is real but the danger is not.”

“Let’s don’t wait forever for our lives to start. Let’s begin them ourselves. Let’s be fearless for once and say, we can do this.”

“There isn’t any one big test or way to validate ourselves in the world. There’s just a long, quiet process of finding our place in it.”

“I believe there are choices each of us make every single day. We can dwell on our limitations or we can push ourselves past them.”
