Lang Leav, an online sensation and a multi-awarded poet, has just released her debut novel, Sad Girls. Here are among the quotes that I was able to extract from her work. If you haven’t read my review on this book, you may click here.


“I learned that writing is the consolation prize you are given when you don’t get the thing you want the most.” ~ Lang Leav, Sad Girls


“Your first love isn’t the first person you give your heart to, it’s the first one who breaks it.” ~ Lang Leav, Sad Girls


“Our emotions pull us in different directions. The stronger the emotion, the greater the pull. Feelings are not always practical, nor do they make logical sense. That’s just the way it goes.” ~ Lang Leav, Sad Girls


“You can create something that is pure genius, but you have to get your timing right. I always thought that was unfair.” ~ Lang Leav, Sad Girls


“I used to think people were like lighthouses, that they were there to protect you. But they’re not. People are like whirlpools. They pull you in; they drag you under. You have to work so hard just to keep your head above water.” ~ Lang Leav, Sad Girls
