“Every morning, I wake up and forget just for a second that it happened. But once my eyes open, it buries me like a landslide of sharp, sad rocks. Once my eyes open, I’m heavy, like there’s to much gravity on my heart.” ― Sarah Ockler, Twenty Boy Summer “If you simply ignored the feeling, you would never know what might happen, and in many ways that was worse than finding out in the first place. Because if you were wrong, you could go forward in your life without ever looking back over your shoulder and wondering what might have been.” ― Nicholas Sparks, Message in a Bottle “Spoiler alert: Love is worth everything. Everything.” ― Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything “Bet you can’t even name one romantic movie you like,” she teased. She felt smug when a few minutes went by and Oliver was still unable to name one romantic movie he could profess to enjoy. The Empire Strikes Back,” Oliver finally declared, tapping his horn at a Prius that wandered over the line. The Empire Strikes Back? The Star Wars movie? That’s not romantic!” Schuyler huffed, fiddling with the air conditioner controls. Au contraire, my dear, it’s very romantic. The last scene, you know, when they’re about to put Han in that freezing cryogenic chamber or whatever? Remember?” Schuyler mmm-hmmmed. And Leia leans over the ledge and says, ‘I love you.'” That’s cheesy, not romatic,” Schuyler argued, although she did like that part. Let me explain. What’s romantic is what Han says back. Remember what he says to her? After she says ‘I love you’?” Schuyler grinned. Maybe Oliver had a point. “Han says, ‘I know.'” Exactly,” Oliver tapped the wheel. “He doesn’t have to say anything so trite as ‘I love you.” Because that’s already understood. And that’s romantic.” ― Melissa de la Cruz, Revelations “Love needs room to grow. Like a rose. Or a tumor.” ― Christopher Moore, Fool “I wonder if it’s medically possible to be addicted to another human being.” ― Simone Elkeles “In love there are two things – bodies and words. ” ― Joyce Carol Oates “What am I supposed to call you?” “Your Royal Husbandness. It’s required by law, I’m afraid.” ― Kiera Cass, The One “I am running after you, and life, in desperate pursuit. My dream is that someday you will both turn and let me catch you. That dream carries me through every night… I have enclosed a hundred kisses in this letter. You must count them out carefully and not lose any.” ― Lisa Kleypas, Seduce Me at Sunrise “We outgrow love like other things and put it in a drawer, till it an antique fashion shows like costumes grandsires wore.” ― Emily Dickinson “What’s wrong is that every morning and every night, I lie in bed wondering why you’re not beside me.” ― K.A. Tucker, Ten Tiny Breaths “There are only so many of us born at a time and we are thrown into the world to find each other, to find the other ones who don’t think you’re strange, who understand your jokes, your smile, the way you talk. There are only so many of us born at a time and we only have so long to find each other before we die. But we have to try.” ― pleasefindthis, I Wrote This For You “If you have reasons to love someone, you don’t love them.” ― Slavoj Žižek “Set the standard! Stop expecting others to show you love, acceptance, commitment, & respect when you don’t even show that to yourself.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience “When love beckons to you, follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And When his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And When he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden… But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears… But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.” ― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet “Of all the bright cruel lies they tell you, the cruelest is the one called love.” ― George R.R. Martin, Dreamsongs Section 5: Hybrids and Horrors “It’s the most wonderful and terrible thing that can ever happen to you,” she said simply. “You know that you’ve found something amazing, and you want to hold on to it forever; and every second after you have it, you fear the moment you might lose it.” I sighed softly. She was absolutely right. Love was beautiful fear.” ― Kiera Cass, The Elite “I’d shut the whole world down just to tell you” ― Rob Sheffield, Love Is a Mix Tape “It is our wounds that create in us a desire to reach for miracles. The fulfillment of such miracles depends on whether we let our wounds pull us down or lift us up towards our dreams.” ― Jocelyn Soriano, Mend My Broken Heart “Me plus you. (Imma tell you one time) Me plus you. (Imma tell you one time) Me plus you. (Imma tell you one time) One time. When I met ya girl my heart when knock (knock knock) Now them butterflies in my stomach won’t stop (stop stop) Even love is a struggle and it’s all we got. So we gun keep keep climbing to the mountain top. ‘Cause your world, is my world, and my breath is your breath, and my heart is yours…” ― Justin Bieber “For awhile, I thought that was love. -Gaara” ― Masashi Kishimoto “Cole,” I said, “do you think I’m lovable?” “As in ‘cuddly and’?” “As in ‘able to be loved,’” I said. Cole’s gaze was unwavering. Just for a moment, I had the strange idea that I could see exactly what he had looked like when he was younger, and exactly what he’d look like when he was older. It was piercing, a secret glimpse of his future. “Maybe,” he said. “But you won’t let anybody try.” I closed my eyes and swallowed. “I can’t tell the diference between not fighting,” I said,“and giving up.” Despite my eyelids being tightly shut, a single, hot tear ran out of my left eye. I was so angry that it had escaped. I was so angry. Beneath me, the bed tipped as Cole edged closer. I felt him lean over me. His breath, warm and measured, hit my cheek. Two breaths. Three. Four. I didn’t know what I wanted. Then I heard him stop breathing, and a second later, I felt his lips on my mouth. It wasn’t the sort of kiss I’d had with him before, hungry, wanting, desperate. It wasn’t the sort of kiss I’d had with anyone before. This kiss was so soft that it was like a memory of a kiss, so careful on my lips that it waslike a memory of a kiss, so careful on my lips that it was like someone running his fingers along them. My mouth parted and stilled; it was so quiet, a whisper, not a shout. Cole’s hand touched my neck, thumb pressed into the skin next to my jaw. It wasn’t a touch that said “I need more”. It was a touch that said “I want this.” It was all completely soundless. I didn’t think either of us was breathing. Cole sat back up, slowly, and I opened my eyes. His expression, as ever, was blank, the face he wore when something mattered. He said, “That’s how I would kiss you, if I loved you.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, Forever “Encouragement requires empathy and seeing the world from your spouse’s perspective. We must first learn what is important to our spouse. Only then can we give encouragement. With verbal encouragement, we are trying to communicate, “I know. I care. I am with you. How can I help?” We are trying to show that we believe in him and in his abilities. We are giving credit and praise.” ― Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate “I think of the postmodern attitude as that of a man who loves a very cultivated woman and knows that he cannot say to her “I love you madly”, because he knows that she knows (and that she knows he knows) that these words have already been written by Barbara Cartland. Still there is a solution. He can say “As Barbara Cartland would put it, I love you madly”. At this point, having avoided false innocence, having said clearly it is no longer possible to talk innocently, he will nevertheless say what he wanted to say to the woman: that he loves her in an age of lost innocence.” ― Umberto Eco “I have loved no part of the world like this and I have loved no women as I love you. You’re my human Africa. I love your smell as I love these smells. I love your dark bush as I love the bush here, you change with the light as this place does, so that one all the time is loving something different and yet the same. I want to spill myself out into you as I want to die here.” ― Graham Greene, The End of the Affair “Self-righteousness is much like a spiritual egocentricity. It constitutes a secular type of love that thrives under conditionality, one in which is only existent after an individual meets the adopted standards of the condemner; oppositely, unconditional love is a holy love.” ― Criss Jami, Salomé: In Every Inch In Every Mile “Some things are private. Some things needed to be said, even when the person who needed to hear them couldn’t hear anything. Ever again.” ― Rachel Vincent, Alpha “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ― Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version “The only things I regret, and the only things I’ll ever regret are things I didn’t do. In the end, that’s what we mourn. The paths we didn’t take. The people we didn’t touch.” ― Scott Spencer, Endless Love “I know I’m not going to be in your head all the time. But once you know me, I’ll be forever in your heart. ” ― Crystal Woods, Write like no one is reading
