Great New Quotes from Lemony Snicket

- "Perhaps if we saw what was ahead of us, and glimpsed the crimes, follies, and misfortunes that would befall us later on, we would all stay in our mother's wombs, and then there would be nobody in the world but a great number of very fat, very irritated women."

- "What happened in a certain place can stain your feelings for that location, just as ink can stain a white sheet. You can wash it, and wash it, and still never forget what has transpired, a word which here means 'happened and made everybody sad.'"

- "Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby - awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess."

- "One of the remarkable things about love is that, despite very irritating people writing poems and songs about how pleasant it is, it really is quite pleasant."

- "If one's safety is threatened, one often finds courage one didn't know one had. In times of great stress one can often find energy hidden in even the most exhausted areas of the body."

- "It is often difficult to admit that someone you love is not perfect, or to consider aspects of a person that are less than admirable."
