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.”

I tend to unveil the issues which are easily neglected by the mainstream public. Situated in a global capitalist society, the core spirit of capitalism disseminates a reward-oriented idea. What is the underlying causality of universal bullying phenomenon on the worldwide scale? As to Finland’s anti-bullying program “Kiva,” what do you reckon? Self-serving politicians gross over their wickedness by law or something and they are talented at outwitting the crowds and working for their own advantage with flat-out lies. It's a knowledge-oriented website. This platform also provides entertaining, soul-healing articles. The best way to support the website is to help share the articles on Facebook, Line or Instagram. Many thanks. 不久的未來,會逐步增加英文文章的篇幅,中文文章的部分還是主體,不論手機板或電腦版都建議「利用目錄和關鍵字搜尋主題」。網站目標是兼具知識、娛樂與療癒功能的平台。網站提供日英語教學、兩性專欄、最新醫療資訊、推薦書籍、旅遊美食、職場生存之道專欄、親子教育、歌單、逛街情報、理財投資等。支持網站最好的方式,是幫忙把文章分享出去。陸劇《新結婚時代》、韓劇《急診男女》《迷霧》《羅曼史是別冊附錄》、日劇《完美世界》《3年A班》、台劇《我們不能是朋友》、美劇影集推薦《良醫墨非》《命運航班》《小謝爾頓》。眼科黃宥嘉醫生掛名推薦的療癒系小說《推理愛》、醫學書籍《向癒》。關於教育,不該只focus要求孩子「聽話」,應該盡可能早點交會孩子「拒絕」「求救」「表達自己的想法」與「選擇和做決定的能力」。比起幫孩子做決定,「訓練孩子為自己的事做決定很可能比什麼都重要」,畢竟,父母不可能永恆地陪在身邊替孩子做決定....如果你剛好相信上帝,傲慢、怠惰、對生命喪失熱情和貪吃都是大忌,互相督促!世界太多聲音,太容易迷失,互相督促!聽說「一知半解比無知更可怕。」研究證實我們的情緒會影響身體的發炎指數和血糖指數,世界的悲劇是溫飽不需要太多太多的錢,但太多人長大以後就「看不到錢以外的東西」...長大以後真的會變聰明嗎?長大以後會讀更多經歷更多體會更多,但只是鑽牛角尖的時間縮短了,悲傷的時間縮短了.....如果和別人不一樣就是異類,那我也不例外,只是,跟所有人都一樣才是正常,你確定?
