“You are beautiful like demolition. Just the thought of you draws my knuckles white. I don’t need a god. I have you and your beautiful mouth, your hands holding onto me, the nails leaving unfelt wounds, your hot breath on my neck. The taste of your saliva. The darkness is ours. The nights belong to us. Everything we do is secret. Nothing we do will ever be understood; we will be feared and kept well away from. It will be the stuff of legend, endless discussion and limitless inspiration for the brave of heart. It’s you and me in this room, on this floor. Beyond life, beyond morality. We are gleaming animals painted in moonlit sweat glow. Our eyes turn to jewels and everything we do is an example of spontaneous perfection. I have been waiting all my life to be with you. My heart slams against my ribs when I think of the slaughtered nights I spent all over the world waiting to feel your touch. The time I annihilated while I waited like a man doing a life sentence. Now you’re here and everything we touch explodes, bursts into bloom or burns to ash. History atomizes and negates itself with our every shared breath. I need you like life needs life. I want you bad like a natural disaster. You are all I see. You are the only one I want to know.” ― Henry Rollins “Now turn around and go to sleep. I’m warning you that I plan to sleep with you in my arms all night long.” ― Colleen Houck, Tiger’s Curse “Those questions you have? Whether he’s the one, whether you feel about him the way you should, or whether the relationship is going okay? When you’re not sure whether you’re in love with someone or not, the answer is not.” ― Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming “Sometimes you cry, Susie, even when someone you love has been gone a long time.” ― Alice Sebold, The Lovely Bones “Honey, no offense, but sometimes I think I could shoot you and watch you kick.” ― Raymond Carver, Where I’m Calling From: New and Selected Stories “Stay for me. Stay with me. There will never be anyone else. Not in my bed. Not in my life. And not in my heart.” ― Rachel Vincent, Alpha “You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi “It’s easy to fall in love, Ben. The hard part comes when you want out.” ― Colleen Hoover, November 9 “She blushed and so did he. She greeted him in a faltering voice, and he spoke to her without knowing what he was saying.” ― Voltaire, Candide “I have come to the conclusion never again to think of marrying, and for this reason, I can never be satisfied with anyone who would be blockhead enough to have me.” ― Abraham Lincoln “Isn’t that the greatest tragedy? When someone rejects us, no matter how they abuse our love, we hope against reason that somehow they will come back to us.” ― Suzanne Elizabeth Anderson, Mrs. Tuesday’s Departure “My chest ached, my body speaking a language my head didn’t quite understand. I waited. But Grace, the only person in the world I wanted to know me, just ran a wanting finger over the cover of one of the new hardcovers and walked out of the store without ever realising I was there, right within reach.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver “No one has imagined us. We want to live like trees, sycamores blazing through the sulfuric air, dappled with scars, still exuberantly budding, our animal passion rooted in the city.” ― Adrienne Rich, The Dream of a Common Language “A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soul mate, the one you can tell your dreams to. He’ll brush the hair out of your eyes. Send you flowers when you least expect it. He’ll stare at you during the movies, even though he paid $8 to see it. He’ll call to say goodnight or just cause he’s missing you. He’ll look in your eyes and tell you, you’re the most beautiful girl in the world, and for the first times in your life, you’ll believe it.” ― Nicholas Sparks “We love our lovin’….but not like we love our freedom.” ― Joni Mitchell “Most women set out to try to change a man, and when they have changed him they do not like him.” ― Marlene Dietrich “You can’t quantify love, and if you try, you can end up focusing on misleading factors. Stuff that really has more to do with personality-the fact that some people are simply more expressive or emotional or needy in a relationship. But beyond such smokescreens, the answer is there. Love is seldom-almost never-an even proposition.” ― Emily Giffin, Baby Proof “She is a woman of honour and smartness whose wild leaves out luck, always taking risks, and there is something in her brow now, that only she can recognize in a mirror. Ideal and idealistic in that shiny dark hair! People fall in love with her. She is a woman I don’t know well enough to hold in my wing, if writers have wings, to harbour for the rest of my life.” ― Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient “Some people never say the words ‘I love you’, for like a child they’re longing to be told.” ― Paul Simon “The main facts in human life are five: birth, food, sleep, love and death.” ― E.M. Forster “I just… I just miss him. And hate being so alone. Does he miss me? He must” ― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games “Were all first loves like that? Somehow she doubted it; even now it struck her as being more real than anything she’d ever known. Sometimes it saddened her to think that she’d never experience that kind of feeling again, but then life had a way of stamping out that intensity of passion; she’d learned all too well that love wasn’t always enough.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me “When we fall in love, we hope – both egotistically and altruistically – that we shall be finally, truly seen: judged and approved. Of course, love does not always bring approval: being seen may just as well lead to a thumbs-down and a season in hell.” ― Julian Barnes, Nothing to Be Frightened Of “Love is a fire that burns unseen, a wound that aches yet isn’t felt, an always discontent contentment, a pain that rages without hurting, a longing for nothing but to long, a loneliness in the midst of people, a never feeling pleased when pleased, a passion that gains when lost in thought. It’s being enslaved of your own free will; it’s counting your defeat a victory; it’s staying loyal to your killer. But if it’s so self-contradictory, how can Love, when Love chooses, bring human hearts into sympathy?” ― Luís Vaz de Camões, Sonetos de Camões “Why is this so hard?” I whispered. His pulse leaped crazily at my admission. “Everything worth fighting for is hard.” ― Rachel Vincent, Shift “Is it possible to love so desperately that life is unbearable? I don’t mean unrequited, I mean being in the love. In the midst of it and desperate. Because knowing it will end, because everything does. End.” ― Peter Heller, The Dog Stars “Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it.” ― Swedish Proverb “Friend, you’re HOPELESSLY hooked!” ― Oliver James “It doesn’t matter, anyway, why you like me. Just that you do.” ― Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby “I couldn’t take my eyes off him. Like a desert wanderer afraid of mirages, I gazed at my oasis, but he was real.” ― Laura Whitcomb, A Certain Slant of Light
