Time Does Pass.

"Time Passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me." -Bella Swan. (From the book, New Moon by Stephenie Meyer.)

The quote above is from a book series that is becoming increasingly popular, as more and more people read it. It is from the book New Moon, and is the second book in the Twilight saga.

I have loved the quote since the first time I read it. You cannot totally understand it unless you have read the books, but the part I love about the quote is that it shows no matter what may happen to you, time passes. Bella (the character in the book) goes through a very painful time, and the pain stays for awhile, but the world continues on. Her life did not end because of the painful occurrence she went through.

As days go by, the pain will cease. Even if the pain does not get better from day to day, there will be better times eventually; that's why you have to wait it all out. If you don't give up, there will happier times ahead of you!

This quote is so dynamic. You can look to it for comfort in so many situations. Whether you have recently been through a break up with your significant other, lost a close family member or friend, or been through any number of traumatic or disappointing situations, this quote provides comfort. It tells that time passes. If there is nothing else to look forward to, you can look forward to time passing, no matter what.
