"You always tell me that I’m too rational; that dreaming is good."
"I’m not sure this is such a good dream."

" We deny that we’re tired, we deny we are scared, we deny how badly we want to succeed, and most importantly we deny that we are in denial. We only see what we want to see, and believe what we want to believe, and it works. We lie to ourselves so much that after awhile the lies start to seem like the truth. We deny so much that we can’t recognize the truth right in front of our faces."

You don’t have to do anything that you don’t want to, Booth.

Temperance Brennan in “The Cold in the Case”

Emily: Booth kind of speaks in metaphor and Brennan is very literal and I think that is very true of Emily and David, as well. I mean, I’m very literal. He speaks in metaphor; I don’t understand what he’s saying half the time he’s talking. I have to, like, think about it in a totally different way to kind of translate it for myself…it’s not natural for either one of us to come from the other’s perspective. We have to work hard to figure out where it’s coming from but we still respect where it is coming from.
