the·right·words.
Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
These people fail to realize that it is on the inside that God must be defended, not on the outside. They should direct their anger at themselves. For evil in the open is but evil from within that has been let out. The main battlefield for good is not the open ground of the public arena but the small clearing of each heart.
Yann Martel, Life of Pi
Have you ever had so many thoughts churning inside you that you didn’t dare let them escape in case they blew you wide open?
Ellen Hopkins, Crank 
It is a terrible thing
To be so open: it is as if my heart
Put on a face and walked into the world.
Sylvia Plath, “Three Women”
It is better to be alone, she figures, than to be with someone who can’t see who you are. It is better to lead than to follow. It is better to speak up than stay silent. It is better to open doors than to shut them on people.
E. Lockhart, The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
