“There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.” ― Jane Austen “Happiness, you see, its just an illusion of Fate, a heavenly sleight of hand designed to make you believe in fairy tales. But there’s no happily ever after. You’ll only find happy endings in books. Some books.” ― Ellen Hopkins “He loved her, he loved her, and until he’d loved her she had never minded being alone….” ― Truman Capote, Summer Crossing “Never stop smiling not even when you’re sad, someone might fall in love with your smile.” ― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez “He who is in love is wise and is becoming wiser, sees newly every time he looks at the object beloved, drawing from it with his eyes and his mind those virtues which it possesses.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson “If you love something let it go.. if it comes back its yours” ― James Patterson, Max “I believe this. When we meet those we fall in love with, there is an aspect of our spirit that is historian, a bit of a pedant who reminisces or remembers a meeting when the other has passed by innocently…but all parts of the body must be ready for the other, all atoms must jump in one direction for desire to occur.” ― Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient “One of the reasons why we crave love, and seek it so desperately, is that love is the only cure for loneliness, and shame, and sorrow. But some feelings sink so deep into the heart that only loneliness can help you find them again. Some truths about yourself are so painful that only shame can help you live with them. And some things are just so sad that only your soul can do the crying for you.” ― Gregory David Roberts, Shantaram “I let myself slip away… Just to stay sane. Just to get through it. And when I felt myself slipping too far, I held on to the one thing I’m always sure of – Blue eyes. Bronze curls. The fact that Simon Snow is the most powerful magician alive. That nothing can hurt him, not even me. That Simon Snow is alive. And I’m hopelessly in love with him.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Carry On “You put me through hell. On purpose. Made me suffer. And there’s no end in sight. I don’t know what the fuck you’re doing, ace, but this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde shit ain’t cutting it with me.” ― Sylvia Day, Reflected in You “Sometimes I think my whole life has been about holding on to you.” ― Jodi Picoult, Vanishing Acts “Maybe sometimes we can only see the truth about ourselves if someone shows us where to look.” ― Michelle Hodkin, The Retribution of Mara Dyer “Adrian smiled and clasped my hands, taking a few steps toward me. “And as for who you are, you’re the same beautiful, brave, and ridiculously smart caffeinated fighter you’ve been since the day I met you.” Finally, he put “beautiful” at the top of his list of adjectives. Not that I should have cared. “Sweet talker,” I scoffed. “You didn’t know anything about me the first time we met.” “I knew you were beautiful,” he said. “I just hoped for the rest.” ― Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell “ Free love? As if love is anything but free! Man has bought brains, but all the millions in the world have failed to buy love. Man has subdued bodies, but all the power on earth has been unable to subdue love. Man has conquered whole nations, but all his armies could not conquer love. Man has chained and fettered the spirit, but he has been utterly helpless before love. High on a throne, with all the splendor and pomp his gold can command, man is yet poor and desolate, if love passes him by. And if it stays, the poorest hovel is radiant with warmth, with life and color. Thus love has the magic power to make of a beggar a king. Yes, love is free; it can dwell in no other atmosphere. In freedom it gives itself unreservedly, abundantly, completely. All the laws on the statutes, all the courts in the universe, cannot tear it from the soil, once love has taken root.” ― Emma Goldman, Marriage and Love “You are my whole heart, Scarlet. And this is breaking it.’ My heart cracked open and clear dropped out of me. My mouth opened, and I looked round me and stamped my foot. ‘Does this look like a good time to tell me that, you damn stupid boy?’ I meant to sound mean but my voice wobbled. ‘Now?’ He gave a little smile. ‘My foul-mouthed warrior.” ― A.C. Gaughen, Scarlet “Friendship arises out of mere Companionship when two or more of the companions discover that they have in common some insight or interest or even taste which the others do not share and which, till that moment, each believed to be his own unique treasure (or burden). The typical expression of opening Friendship would be something like, “What? You too? I thought I was the only one.” … It is when two such persons discover one another, when, whether with immense difficulties and semi-articulate fumblings or with what would seem to us amazing and elliptical speed, they share their vision – it is then that Friendship is born. And instantly they stand together in an immense solitude.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves “Ruby: …What’s so good about being 20? I call them the materialist years. The years we get distracted by all the bullshit. Then we cop on when we hit our 30s and spend those years trying to make up for the 20s. But your 40s? Those years are for enjoying it. Rosie: Hmmm good point. What are the 50s for? Ruby: Fixing what you fucked up in your 40s. Rosie: Great. Looking forward to it.” ― Cecelia Ahern, Love, Rosie “I want to love you without clutching, appreciate you without judging, join you without invading, invite you without demanding, leave you without guilt, criticize you without blaming, and help you without insulting. If I can have the same from you, then we can truly meet and enrich each other.” ― Virginia Satir “Kids chase the love that eludes them.” ― Mitch Albom, For One More Day “It is impossible to manufacture or imitate love.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince “The only sea I saw Was the seesaw sea With you riding on it. Lie down, lie easy. Let me shipwreck in your thighs.” ― Dylan Thomas, Under Milk Wood “Love moderately. Long love doth so. Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow. *Love each other in moderation. That is the key to long-lasting love. Too fast is as bad as too slow.*” ― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet “He loved her for being so beautiful, and he hated her for it. He loved how she put shiny stuff on her lips for him, and he also reviled her for it. He wanted her to walk home alone, and he wanted to run after her and grab her up before she could take another step.” ― Ann Brashares “The surest way to hurt yourself is to give up on love, just because it didn’t work out the first time.” ― Amanda Howells, The Summer of Skinny Dipping “No you sick, stupid creep, I love you. I shouldn’t. I shouldn’t. You’re sick inside, Caine, sick! But I love you. – Diana” ― Michael Grant, Lies “Whenever you are ready, or if you never are, my heart is yours, until Death do us part. Whatever that may mean when consorting with one of Death’s handmaidens.” ― R.L. LaFevers, Grave Mercy “Why me?” she asked, holding on to him. “Because you cared,” he whispered. “You cared so much for your people, it broke your heart to see the pack in ruins. You cared so much for your mother, you risked your life for hers. You cared enough to save someone who wanted you dead. And because you walk like a queen.” ― Annette Curtis Klause, Blood and Chocolate “Anatasia You Are My More My Love, My Life Christian” ― E.L. James, Fifty Shades Freed “I don’t believe it,’ Quince says with absolute certainty. ‘ I don’t believe anything magical can make someone more in love.’ […] He looks me right in the eye as he says, ‘Love is already the strongest magic in the world.” ― Tera Lynn Childs, Forgive My Fins “Look,” I said, “We knew Jason and Becky would be back, the break would end. This isn’t a surprise, it’s what’s supposed to happen. It’s what we wanted. Right?” “Is it?” he asked. “Is it what you want?” Whether he intended it to be or not, this was the final question, the last Truth. If I said what I really thought, I was opening myself up for a hurt bigger than I could even imagine. I didn’t have it in me. We changed and altered so many rules, but it was this one, the only one when we’d started, that I would break. “Yes,” I said.” ― Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever
