Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you - sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever
“Everything looks beautiful. The Book of Shhh says that deliria alters your perception, disables your ability to reason clearly, impairs you from making sound judgments. But it does not tell you this: that love will turn the whole world into something greater than itself.”
- Lena Haloway
“I’ve been so used to thinking of what the borders are keeping out that I haven’t considered that they’re also penning us in.”
- Delirium, Lauren Oliver
“People themselves are full of tunnels: winding, dark spaces and caverns; impossible to know all the places inside of them. Impossible even to imagine.”
“I wish I could close my eyes and be blown into dust and nothingness, feel all my thoughts disperse like dandelion fluff drifting off on the wind. But his hands keep pulling me back: into the alley, and Portland, and a world that has suddenly stopped making sense.”
“He is my world and my world is him and without him there is no world.”
The third/last book in the series is called ‘Requiem’ which is coming out in 2013. It will be in both Lena’s and Hana’s point of view.
There is a short story which is only avaliable as a digital copy called ‘Hana’, it’s only in Hana’s point of view.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LENA HALOWAY!
In 6 months you’ll be choosing either Alex or Julian…
“I run for I don’t know how long. Hours, maybe, or days. Alex told me to run. So I run. You have to understand. I am no one special. I am just a single girl. I am five feet two inches tall and I am in-between in every way. But I have a secret. You can build walls all the way to the sky and I will find a way to fly above them. You can try to pin me down with a hundred thousand arms, but I will find a way to resist. And there are many of us out there, more than you think. People who refuse to stop believing. People who refuse to come to earth. People who love in a world without walls, people who love into hate, into refusal, against hope,and without fear. I love you. Remember. They cannot take it.” ― Lauren Oliver, Delirium
At this point in the book I was in tears.
