"As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet? I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it. But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?" - Aman Ali

"I think and think and think, I’ve thought myself out of happiness one million times, but never once into it."

Jonathan Safran Foer

"We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight; somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has even been spoken."
