The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person.
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
If you stare at the center of the universe, there is a coldness there. A blankness. Ultimately, the universe doesn’t care about us. Time doesn’t care about us. 
That’s why we have to care about each other.
David Levithan, Every Day
I have lived through much, and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor—such is my idea of happiness. And then, on top of all that, you for a mate, and children perhaps—what can more the heart of man desire?
Leo Tolstoy, Family Happiness

For those who are not frightened by the solitude, everything will have a different taste…

In solitude, they will learn that saying ‘No’ does not always show a lack of generosity and that saying ‘Yes’ is not always a virtue.

Anyone who gives you a cinnamon roll fresh from the oven is a friend for life
It always shocked me when I realized that I wasn’t the only person in the world who thought and felt such strange and awful things.
Sometimes the best way to deal with shit… is to not hold yourself as such a precious little prize.

I first introduced TowerBabel.com here a few months ago, and it looks like they have grown their collection of free eBooks from those great classics to include indie author published works as well.
