Everything I Never Told You- Inspirational Quotes 

1. “The things that go unsaid are often the things that eat at you–whether because you didn’t get to have your say, or because the other person never got to hear you and really wanted to.” ★★

#eat (away) at someone: to trouble someone constantly. e.g. The nasty situation at work ate at me day and night.

2“People decide what you’re like before they even get to know you”
― Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You
3.“You loved so hard and hoped so much and then you ended up with nothing. Children who no longer needed you. A husband who no longer wanted you. Nothing left but you, alone, and empty space.” ★★★★
― Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You

4.“It would disappear forever from her memory of Lydia, the way memories of a lost loved one always smooth and simplify themselves, shedding complexities like scales.”
― Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You
5.“It’s too late. He’s already learned how not to drown.” ★★★★
― Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You
6.“When a long, long time later, he stares down at the silent blue marble of the earth and thinks of his sister, as he will at every important moment of his life. He doesn’t know this yet, but he senses it deep down in his core. So much will happen, he thinks, that I would want to tell you.”
― Celeste Ng, Everything I Never Told You
7.“How had it begun? Like everything: with mothers and fathers. Because of Lydia’s mother and father, because of her mother’s and father’s mothers and fathers.”
8.“You could stop taking their phone calls, tear up their letters, pretend they’d never existed. Start over as a new person with a new life. Just a problem of geography, he thought, with the confidence of someone who had never yet tried to free himself of family.”
9.“He can guess, but he won’t ever know, not really. What it was like, what she was thinking, everything she’d never told him. Whether she thought he’d failed her, or whether she wanted him to let her go. This, more than anything, makes him feel that she is gone.” ★★★★
10“Tears blur Marilyn’s sight. It had not been science that Lydia had loved”
11“She understands. There is nowhere to go but on. Still, part of her longs to go back”
12.“You don’t feel like smiling? Then what? Force yourself to smile. Act as if you were already happy, and that will tend to make you happy.”

國外研究證實阿茲海默症患者「禁糖」可逆轉病情!維他命E主修復,容易緊繃的人類可多補充富含維生素B和鈣的食物。提高體溫便可提振心情和提高自癒力。提升免疫力,穴道按摩排除氣結是其一。科學已證實正面情緒可降低「身體發炎指數和血糖指數」。禍福相依,創傷之所以存在,往往不是事件本身,而是人們的負面解讀和負面標籤。拔牙與產子都是巨痛,但創傷比例偏低,是因為人們給予了事件正面的存在意義,並且相信所有人都能熬過去的意志。不記他人之惡,因為佛教基督教都一樣,老天爺(上帝)都記在本子裡了。理財時代,從照顧好自己的健康開始。想著別人的壞,為難了自己,想著別人的好,溫暖了自己!不屬於自己的只會逗留,不會久留。不自律就不太可能快樂。不自律,就很難肯定自己。做該做的事,而不是想做的事。「柔」「自律」「耐心」….To love and to repent.
