Sadness Quotes in The Perks of Being a Wallflower
How we cite our quotes: (Part.Chapter.Paragraph)
And then I felt really sad because I thought maybe I was different from how Mary Elizabeth saw me, too. (3.10.17)
Instead of trying to clarify to Mary Elizabeth who he really is—whoever that may be—Charlie just mopes about it. Passivity just seeps into every pore of his being.
The nights he would pick up someone always made him sad. (4.5.24)
Charlie's not the only sad one, of course. Patrick is using sex to get over Brad, but it's not quite working the way he intended. Is Stephen Chbosky trying to send a message here, or is he just telling it like it is?
