Sixteen is the key and crucial and natural age for a human being to be, and people of all other ages are ranged in an orderly manner ahead of and behind you as a harmonious setting for the sixteen-year-olds of this world. When you are sixteen, adults are slightly impressed and almost intimidated by you.

They wept because they were friends; and because they were kind; and because they, who had been friends since childhood, were concerned with such a mean subject--money; and because their youth was gone ... But for both of them they were pleasant tears ...

“Every few weeks she would shut herself up in her room, put on her scribbling suit, and fall into a vortex, as she expressed it, writing away at her novel with all her heart and soul, for till that was finished, she could find no peace.”

~ Louisa May Alcott

quote 2014-10-31 19:34
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven;
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to sow, and a time to harvest;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to be quiet, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
A Time for War, A Time for Peace - Keith R.A. DeCandido

By now, you must know that there is always a goodbye hovering in the shadow of a [pet]. We are never here for long, or for long enough. We were never meant to share all of your life, only to mark its passages. We come and we go. We come when we are needed. We leave when it is time.
