“To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.” ― David Viscott “If our testimonies are strong onthis point and if we feel the absolute assurance that God loves us, we will change our questons. We won’t ask, ‘Why did this happen?’ or ‘Why doesn’t God care about me?’ Instead, our questions will become, ‘What can I learn from this experience?’ or ‘How does the Lord want me to handle this?” ― John Bytheway, When Times Are Tough: 5 Scriptures That Will Help You Get Through Almost Anything “Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.” ― Amy Bloom “I’ve never wanted more, until I met you.” ― E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey “Love makes the world go round? Not at all. Whiskey makes it go round twice as fast.” ― Compton Mackenzie “One is never wounded by the love one gives, only by the love one expects.” ― Marty Rubin “We are bound together, Emma, bound together—I breathe when you breathe, I bleed when you bleed, I’m yours and you’re mine, you’ve always been mine, and I have always, always belonged to you!” ― Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight “I feel like myself, strong and weak at once – allowed, at least for a little while, to be both.” ― Veronica Roth, Allegiant “It’s not so much the journey that’s important; as is the way that we treat those we encounter and those around us, along the way” ― Jeremy Aldana “And I still love you in my own fucked-up way. I miss you, I really do. Can we still be friends?” ― Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook “The most introspective of souls are often those that have been hurt the most.” ― Shannon L. Alder “She loved him. But he didn’t know how to love. He could talk about love. He could see love and feel love. But he couldn’t give love. He could make love. But he couldn’t make promises. She had desperately wanted his promises. She wanted his heart, knew she couldn’t have it so she took what she could get. Temporary bliss. Passionate highs and lows. Withdrawal and manipulation. He only stayed long enough to take what he needed and keep moving. If he stopped moving, he would self-destruct. If he stopped wandering, he would have to face himself. He chose to stay in the dark where he couldn’t see. If he exposed himself and the sun came out, he’d see his shadow. He was deathly afraid of his shadow. She saw his shadow, loved it, understood it. Saw potential in it. She thought her love would change him. He pushed and he pulled, tested boundaries, thinking she would never leave. He knew he was hurting her, but didn’t know how to share anything but pain. He was only comfortable in chaos. Claiming souls before they could claim him. Her love, her body, she had given to him and he’d taken with such feigned sincerity, absorbing every drop of her. His dark heart concealed. She’d let him enter her spirit and stroke her soul where everything is love and sensation and surrender. Wide open, exposed to deception. It had never occurred to her that this desire was not love. It was blinding the way she wanted him. She couldn’t see what was really happening, only what she wanted to happen. She suspected that he would always seek to minimize the risk of being split open, his secrets revealed. He valued his soul’s privacy far more than he valued the intimacy of sincere connection so he kept his distance at any and all costs. Intimacy would lead to his undoing—in his mind, an irrational and indulgent mistake. When she discovered his indiscretions, she threw love in his face and beat him with it. Somewhere deep down, in her labyrinth, her intricacy, the darkest part of her soul, she relished the mayhem. She felt a sense of privilege for having such passion in her life. He stirred her core. The place she dared not enter. The place she could not stir for herself. But something wasn’t right. His eyes were cold and dark. His energy, unaffected. He laughed at her and her antics, told her she was a mess. Frantic, she looked for love hiding in his eyes, in his face, in his stance, and she found nothing but disdain. And her heart stopped.” ― G.G. Renee Hill, The Beautiful Disruption “She wanted to lose herself in him. To tie his arms around her like a tourniquet. If she showed him how much she needed him, he’d run away.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park “He didn’t marry you to become king. He became king because he wanted to marry you.” ― Megan Whalen Turner, The King of Attolia “How far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps?” ― Warsan Shire “I can hate you more, but I’ll never love you less.” ― Michael Morpurgo, War Horse “If you say a word, it leaps out and becomes the truth. I love you. I believe it. I believe I am loveable. How can something as fragile as a word build a whole world?” ― Franny Billingsley, Chime “He recognized her despite the uproar, through his tears of unrepeatable sorrow at dying without her, and he looked at her for the last and final time with eyes more luminous, more grief-stricken, more grateful than she had ever seen them in half a century of a shared life, and he managed to say to her with his last breath: “Only God knows how much I loved you” ― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera “and all I could think was that I would like to spend every morning for the rest of my life waking up beside her” ― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John “By night, Love, tie your heart to mine, and the two together in their sleep will defeat the darkness” ― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets “LOVE is a friendship set to music” ― E. Joseph Cossman “I wake up and tear drops, they fall down like rain. I put on that old song we danced to and then, I head off to my job cause not much has changed. Punch the clock, head for home, check the phone. Just in case. Go to bed, dream of you. That’s what I am doing these days.” ― Rascal Flatts “Peace,love,empathy” ― Kurt Cobain “Real love is to offer your life at the feet of another.” ― John Ajvide Lindqvist, Let the Right One In “Do you love him?” Deryn swallowed, then pointed at the screen. “He makes me feel like that. Like flying.” ― Scott Westerfeld, Goliath “You have been with me from the very first life. You are my first memory every time, the single thread in all of my lives. It`s you who makes me a person.” ― Ann Brashares, My Name Is Memory “If someone does not want me it is not the end of the world. But if I do not want me, the world is nothing but endings.” ― Nayyirah Waheed “If you claim to be a real friend then be real in your soul. If you claim to be fake then be an enemy instead.” ― Santosh Kalwar “The world is filled with love-play, from animal lust to sublime compassion.” ― Alan W. Watts “You’ll probably die if you stay with me,’ he told me. ‘Then I’m dead either way, because I won’t survive without you.” ― Julie Hockley, Crow’s Row
