Ruta Sepetys

Have you ever wondered what a human life is worth? That morning, my brother's was worth a pocket watch.

Sometimes kindness can be delivered in a clumsy way.

Sometimes there is such beauty in awkwardness. There's love and emotion trying to express itself, but at the time, it just ends up being awkward.

Whether love of friend, love of country, love of God, or even love of enemy—love reveals to us the truly miraculous nature of the human spirit.
