Quotes from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
What she had realized was that love was that moment when your heart was about to burst.
Everyone has secrets. It’s just a matter of finding out what they are.
No, I don’t believe in God, but I respect the fact that you do. Everyone has to have something to believe in.
