" - Who wants to be a millionaire ? That show was a national obsession.
It was mandatory viewing in my family.
- Why did you watch it ?
- Well... Because it was so interesting.
- Would it have been half as interesting if the top prize had been ten thousand instead of a million ?
- Well... I suppose not.
- Exactly. You see, the biggest tease in the world is not sex. It's money.
And the greater the sum of money, the bigger the tease."

"I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why there're here. If they like their job. Or us. And i wonder how smart they were when they were fifteen. Not in a mean way.
In a curious way.
It's like looking at all the students and wondering who's had their heart broken that day, and how they are able to cope with having three quizzes and a book report on top of that. Or wondering who did the heartbreaking.
And wondering why.
Especially since i know that if they went to another school, the person who had their heart broken would have had their heart broken by somebody else, so why does it have to be so personal ?"
Always in The perks of being a wallflower, car certains bouts du livre m'ont tellement touchée qu'il leur fallait plus de place, un article pour eux tous seuls, pour qu'ils puissent résonner aussi fort que dans ma tête,
la dernière fois.
Vous ai-je dit que ce fut un coup de coeur, entre lui et moi ?

"Charlie, we accept the love we think we deserve."
"- He's something, isn't he ?
- He's a wallflower."
"Anyway, Patrick started driving very fast, and just before we got to the tunnel. Sam stood up, and the wind turned her dress into ocean waves. When we hit the tunnel, all the sound got scooped up into a vacuum, and it was replaced by a song on the tape player. A beautiful song called "Landslide". When we got out of the tunnel, Sam screamed this really fun scream, and there it was.
Downtown. Lights on buildings and everything that makes you wonder. Sam sat down and started laughing. Patrick started laughing. I started laughing.
And in that moment, i swear we were infinite."
(42 ? est-ce un mystère ? Je ne crois pas non.)
"I really think that everyone should have watercolors, magnetic poetry, and a harmonica."
"I would die for you. But i won't live for you."
"I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won't tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn't do change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have."

Ce livre est une véritable leçon de vie. Je l'ai commencé, me suis agrippée, je l'ai fini dans la soirée tellement il me correspondait. Apprendre à sourire, à réfléchir, à être, mais à 'être' de cette manière la plus juste possible, la plus sincère possible, cet 'être'-là, qui au fond n'est que nous, que moi.
Ce livre m'a appris qu'il y a des adultes qui croient toujours à leurs rêves d'enfants, à un monde meilleur, à un endroit où seuls les sourires pourraient nous emmener.
J'ai envie de faire partie de ces adultes-là. De me battre pour garder cette part de moi qui, après tout, ne demande qu'à y croire.
