"When you drop a glass or a plate to the ground, it makes a loud crashing sound. When a window shatters, a table leg breaks or when a picture falls off the wall, it makes a sound. But as for your heart, when that breaks, it’s completely silent. You would think as it’s so important it would make the loudest noise in the whole world, or even have some sort of ceremonious sound like the gong of a cymbal or the ringing of a bell. But it’s silent and you almost wish there was a noise to distract you from the pain."
Cecelia Ahern, If You Could See Me Now
