Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
It only takes a spark, to get the fire going. And soon all those around, can warm up in its glowing. That’s how it is with God’s love, once you’ve experienced it. You want to sing, it’s fresh like spring. You want to Pass It On.
Kevin Kwan, Crazy Rich Asians

China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan
I know the average outfit in your wardrobe costs more than a semester of tuition at Princeton, but it makes you look like a community college during summertime: NO CLASS.
Kevin Kwan, China Rich Girlfriend

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover

All humans make mistakes. What determines a person’s character aren’t the mistakes we make. It’s how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.

Colleen Hoover, It Ends with Us

A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman

Ove had never been asked how he lived before he met her. But if anyone had asked him, he would have answered that he didn’t.
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove

People said Ove saw the world in black and white. But she was color. All the color he had.
Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove

She just smiled, said that she loved books more than anything, and started telling him excitedly what each of the ones in her lap was about. And Ove realised that he wanted to hear her talking about the things she loved for the rest of his life.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
We’re both looking at the same moon, in the same world. We’re connected to reality by the same line. All I have to do is quietly draw it towards me.

South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami
For a long time, she held a special place in my heart. I kept this special place just for her, like a “Reserved” sign on a quiet corner table in a restaurant. Despite the fact that I was sure I’d never see her again.
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun

Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami
She waited for the train to pass. Then she said, “I sometimes think that people’s hearts are like deep wells. Nobody knows what’s at the bottom. All you can do is imagine by what comes floating to the surface every once in a while.
Haruki Murakami, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman


The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
Be grateful for what you have now. As you begin to think about all the things in your life you are grateful for, you will be amazed at the never ending thoughts that come back to you of more things to be grateful for. You have to make a start, and then the law of attraction will receive those grateful thoughts and give you more just like them.
Rhonda Byrne, The Secret

There is a truth deep down inside of you that has been waiting for you to discover it, and that truth is this: you deserve all good things life has to offer.
Rhonda Byrne, The Secret

Why Men Love Bitches by Sherry Argov
Bitch (noun): A woman who won’t bang her head against the wall obsessing over someone else’s opinion – be it a man or anyone else in her life. She understands that if someone does not approve of her, it’s just one person’s opinion; therefore, it’s of no real importance. She doesn’t try to live up to anyone else’s standards – only her own. Because of this, she relates to a man very differently.

Marley and Me by John Grogan
A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.
John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog

The Last Time I Saw Mother by Arlene J. Chai
Love and passion are well and good while they last, but in the end what mattes is whether you like the person you are with. Friendship and companionship matter more. They are the things that last. And if in the end we learn to be friends, I will be content.
Arlene J. Chai, The Last Time I Saw Mother

If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.
