“Because…because…she came here with me.” ― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games “He then put both hands on the door on either side of my head and leaned in close, pinning me against it. I trembled like a downy rabbit caught in the clutches of a wolf. The wolf came closer. He bent his head and began nuzzling my cheek. The problem was…I wanted the wolf to devour me.” ― Colleen Houck, Tiger’s Curse “Love heals scars love left” ― Henry Rollins, The Portable Henry Rollins “We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.” ― Dalai Lama XIV “Love is the kind of thing that’s already happening by the time you notice it, that’s how it works, and no matter how old you get, that doesn’t change. Except that you can break it up into two entirely distinct types — love where there’s an end in sight and love where there isn’t.” ― Banana Yoshimoto, Goodbye Tsugumi “Love is never supposed to hurt. Love is supposed to heal, to be your haven from misery, to make living fucking worthwhile.” ― Mia Asher, Arsen: A Broken Love Story “Sometimes that mountain you’ve been climbing is just a grain of sand, and what you’ve been up there searching for forever, is in your hands. When you figure out love is all that matters after all it sure makes everything else seem so small.” ― Carrie Underwood “For love is no part of the dreamworld. Love belongs to Desire, and Desire is always cruel.” ― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 2: The Doll’s House “For there are two kinds of forgiveness in the world: the one you practice because everything really is all right, and what went before is mended. The other kind of forgiveness you practice because someone needs desperately to be forgiven, or because you need just as badly to forgive them, for a heart can grab hold of old wounds and go sour as milk over them.” ― Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There “The most difficult aspect of moving on is accepting that the other person already did.” ― Faraaz Kazi “People who meet in airports are seventy-two percent more likely to fall for each other than people who meet anywhere else.” ― Jennifer E. Smith, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight “I was feeling insecure you might not love me anymore” ― John Lennon “I know women are taught by other women that they must never admit the full truth to a man. But the highest form of affection is based on full sincerity on both sides. Not being men, these women don’t know that in looking back on those he has had tender relations with, a man’s heart returns closest to her who was the soul of truth in her conduct. The better class of man, even if caught by airy affectations of dodging and parrying, is not retained by them. A Nemesis attends the woman who plays the game of elusiveness too often, in the utter contempt for her that, sooner or later, her old admirers feel; under which they allow her to go unlamented to her grave.” ― Thomas Hardy “You’re sorry? I damn near drank myself to death, I could barely get out of bed, I shattered my phone into a million pieces on New Year’s Eve to keep from calling you … and you’re sorry?” I bit my lip and nodded, ashamed. I had no idea what he’d been through, and hearing his say the words made sharp pain twist inside my chest. “I’m so … so sorry.” “You’re forgiven,” he said with a grin. “Don’t ever do it again.” “I won’t. I promise.” He flashed his dimple and shook his head. “I fucking love you.” ― Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster “You will think me cruel, very selfish, but love is always selfish; the more ardent the more selfish. How jealous I am you cannot know. You must come with me, loving me, to death; or else hate me, and still come with me, and hating me through death and after. There is no such word as indifference in my apathetic nature.” ― J. Sheridan Le Fanu, Carmilla “She thought she was independent and strong, but she got one small taste of love and she was hungrier than anyone. She was ravenous.” ― Ann Brashares, Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood “love is what moves the world, I’ve always thought…it is the only thing which allows men and women to stand in a world where gravity always seems to want to pull them down…bring them low…and make them crawl…” ― Stephen King “Ang great love mo, hindi mo makakatuluyan. Ang makakatuluyan mo ay yung correct love.” ― Ricky Lee, Para Kay B “Love is a fruit in season at all times and within reach of every hand.” ― Mother Teresa “He will love only once – but it will be for always.” ― Judith McNaught, Paradise “What is it the I’ll want from you? Not love: that would be too much to ask. Not forgiveness, which isn’t yours to bestow. Only a listener, perhaps; only someone who will see me. Don’t prettify me though, whatever else you do: I have no wish to be a decorated skull. But I leave myself in your hands. What choice do I have? By the time you read this last page, that- if anywhere- is the only place I will be.” ― Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin “I want you to want me because you want me, not because of grief, not because he is not here. I want you to love me for me. I want you to kiss me first and not because you need me to help you, but because you need to kiss me.” ― Carrie Jones, Entice “It took me years to figure out that upset was upset, and tumultuousness was not the same thing as passion. Love isn’t drama.” ― Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming “He didn’t realize that love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone “Yes, St. Claire. I like you. But I can’t say it aloud, because he’s my friend. And friends don’t let other friends make drunken declarations and expect them to act upon them the next day” ― Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss “Love is making friends with fear because fear is the constant companion of intimacy ~ and when you bring fear out of the darkness and into the light, you realize it was an illusion based on our own insecurities.” ― Allen L. Roland “The heart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has its pearls too” ― Vincent Van Gogh, The Letters of Vincent van Gogh “The process of falling in love at first sight is as final as it is swift in such a case, but the growth of true friendship may be a lifelong affair.” ― Sarah Orne Jewett “Modern man has transformed himself into a commodity; he experiences his life energy as an investment with which he should make the highest profit, considering his position and the situation on the personality market. He is alienated from himself, from his fellow men and from nature. His main aim is profitable exchange of his skills, knowledge, and of himself, his “personality package” with others who are equally intent on a fair and profitable exchange. Life has no goal except the one to move, no principle except the one of fair exchange, no satisfaction except the one to consume.p97.” ― Erich Fromm, The Art of Loving “It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.” ― Confucius
