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.”

Countless people feel they are badly rewarded by God. Most people stigmatize their life troubles because they know nothing about “God’s discipline” in the Bible (Hebrews 12:11). It takes time to figure out the blessings in life. God does not tend to make anyone’s life perfect. It’s just some people hide their tears from you. According to the Bible, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” (NRSV, Mark 10:23-27). Because those who have been “given much, much will be demanded” (Luke 12; 47–48). As an editor, I tend to unveil the issues which are easily neglected by the mainstream public.
