“When I walk, I walk with you. Where I go, you’re with me always.” ― Alice Hoffman, The Story Sisters “I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.” ― Oprah Winfrey “Percy pulled Annabeth close and kissed her…long enough for it to get really awkward for Piper, though she said nothing. She thought about the old rule of Aphrodite’s cabin: that to be recognized as a daughter of the love goddess, you had to break someone’s heart. Piper had long ago decided to change that rule. Percy and Annabeth were a perfect example of why. You should have to make someone`s heart whole; that was a much better test.” ― Rick Riordan, The Blood of Olympus “…he had a way of taking your hand which made it clear he’d have to be the one to let go.” From Alice Hoffman’s “Local Girls”, pg.102.” ― Alice Hoffman, Local Girls “Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone one who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.” ― Anonymous, The New Testament “Only you could be more important than what I wanted…what I needed. What I want and what I need is to be with you, and I know I’ll never be strong enough to leave again.” ― Stephenie Meyer, New Moon “You see the first thing we love is a scene. For love at first sight requires the very sign of its suddenness; and of all things, it is the scene which seems to be seen best for the first time: a curtain parts and what had not yet ever been seen is devoured by the eyes: the scene consecrates the object I am going to love. The context is the constellation of elements, harmoniously arranged that encompass the experience of the amorous subject… Love at first sight is always spoken in the past tense. The scene is perfectly adapted to this temporal phenomenon: distinct, abrupt, framed, it is already a memory (the nature of a photograph is not to represent but to memorialize)… this scene has all the magnificence of an accident: I cannot get over having had this good fortune: to meet what matches my desire. The gesture of the amorous embrace seems to fulfill, for a time, the subject’s dream of total union with the loved being: The longing for consummation with the other… In this moment, everything is suspended: time, law, prohibition: nothing is exhausted, nothing is wanted: all desires are abolished, for they seem definitively fulfilled… A moment of affirmation; for a certain time, though a finite one, a deranged interval, something has been successful: I have been fulfilled (all my desires abolished by the plenitude of their satisfaction).” ― Roland Barthes, A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments “It always struck me in years after how bizarre it was, how two people could look at one another with such tenderness and complete love, and how quickly that could dissolve into nothing but bitterness.” ― Hannah Harrington, Saving June “You have the power to tear me to pieces, to wound me so deep and true that I’ll never recover. What Rissa’s death did to the boy I was? You have the ability to do a thousand times worse to the man I’ve become.” ― Nalini Singh, Kiss of Snow “Celia, wait,” Marco says, standing but not moving closer to her. “You are breaking my heart. You told me once that I reminded you of your father. That you never wanted to suffer the way your mother did for him, but you are doing exactly that to me. You keep leaving me. You leave me longing for you again and again when I would give anything for you to stay, and it is killing me.” “It has to kill one of us,” Celia says quietly.” ― Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus “Love is the most selfish of all the passions.” ― Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers “It’s amazing how people can sound like retards when they’re talking to their girlfriend, especially if they really love her a lot. Because when you’re just fucking someone you make a point of keeping your cool, but when you’re really in love – it can sound pretty repulsive.” ― Etgar Keret, The Nimrod Flipout: Stories “There are not enough days in forever to allow me to fully express the depth of my love for you.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience “What a man wants is a mate and what a woman wants is infinite security,’ and, ‘What a man is is an arrow into the future and a what a woman is is the place the arrow shoots off from.” ― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar “Any time not spent on love is wasted.” ― Torquato Tasso “I didn’t call you because I’m tired of you only wanting me around when you need something. I’m tired of watching you be in love with someone else – someone, incidentally, who will never love you back. Not the way I do.” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Glass “Once for all, then, a short precept is given thee: Love, and do what thou wilt: whether thou hold thy peace, through love hold thy peace; whether thou cry out, through love cry out; whether thou correct, through love correct; whether thou spare, through love do thou spare: let the root of love be within, of this root can nothing spring but what is good.” ― Augustine of Hippo, Homilies on the First Epistle of John “There will be no more British guys. Unless they are members of the royal family, of course. ” ― Meg Cabot, Queen of Babble “Do you remember the first time we made love?” He touched his lips to hers as he said it. “We rode up in the elevator like this and couldn’t keep our hands off each other, couldn’t get to each other quick enough. I was mad for you. I wanted you more than I wanted to keep breathing. I still do.” He deepened the kiss as the elevator doors opened. “It’s never going to change.” ― J.D. Robb, Big Jack “But this girl…she doesn’t feel pointless. She’s real and she’s beautiful and she fits perfectly when she’s in my arms. She makes me want to feel.” ― Monica Murphy, One Week Girlfriend “I’m ruined beyond repair, is what I fear…And if so, in time we’d both be wretched and bitter.” “I know people can be mended. Not all, and some more immediately than others. But some can be. I don’t see why not you.” “Why not me?” ― Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain “My heart is breaking,” she says. “I want to be strong for you right now but the thought of you leaving is killing me inside.” ― Pittacus Lore, I Am Number Four “People don’t need love. What they need is success in one form or another. It can be love but it needn’t be.” ― Charles Bukowski, Factotum “I’ve got you. I swear to God, I’ve got you,” said Noah. “Stay with me, Echo.” I wanted to. I wanted to stay with him, but the shouting and screams and glass breaking in my mind grew louder. “Make it stop.” He tightened his grip on my arms. “Fight, Echo! You’ve got to fucking fight. Come on, baby. You’re safe.” ― Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits “Quizás aun no te comprenda. Pero, con un poco de tiempo, llegaré a entenderte. Y no habrá nadie en el mundo que te comprenda mejor que yo.” ― Haruki Murakami “Faith is why I’m here today and faith is why I made it through.” ― Jonathan Anthony Burkett, Neglected But Undefeated: The Life Of A Boy Who Never Knew A Mother’s Love “Promise me you’ll marry me. Not now. Someday. Because I need to know.” Claire felt a flutter inside, like a bird trying to fly, and a rush of heat that made her dizzy. And something else, something fragile as a soap bubble, and just as beautiful. Joy, in the middle of all this horror and heartbreak. “Yes,” she whispered back. “I promise.” And she kissed him, and kissed him, and kissed him, while the sun came up and bathed Morganville in one last, shining day.” ― Rachel Caine, Last Breath “Deep in my heart I’m concealing things that I’m longing to say. Scared to confess what I’m feeling – frightened you’ll slip away.” ― Madonna “To become vegetarian is to step into the stream which leads to nirvana.” ― Gautama Buddha “How beautiful would it be if we could just see souls instead of bodies? To see love and compassion instead of curves.” ― Karen Quan, Write like no one is reading 2
