“Sometimes you have to learn to love what’s good for you.” ― Stephenie Meyer, New Moon “You have a beautiful laugh. Like the promise of tomorrow.” ― Renee Ahdieh, The Wrath & the Dawn “Faith goes up the stairs that love has built and looks out the windows which hope has opened.” ― Charles Haddon Spurgeon “من قال لك أن درب الجنة معبد بالورود؟” ― أحمد خيري العمري, إدرينالين “It isn’t about love,” Vee said. “It’s about fun.” ― Becca Fitzpatrick, Hush, Hush “I wanted movement and not a calm course of existence. I wanted excitement and danger and the chance to sacrifice myself for my love.” ― Leo Tolstoy “breathtaking, adj. Those mornings when we kiss and surrender for an hour before we say a single word.” ― David Levithan, The Lover’s Dictionary “You don’t have to say I love you to say I love you,” you said with a shrug. “All you have to do is say my name and I know.” …”Can’t you hear it?” you said. “When you love someone, you say their name different. Like it’s safe inside your mouth.” ― Jodi Picoult “On the surface, I was calm: in secret, without really admitting it, I was waiting for something. Her return? How could I have been waiting for that? We all know that we are material creatures, subject to the laws of physiology and physics, and not even the power of all our feelings combined can defeat those laws. All we can do is detest them. The age-old faith of lovers and poets in the power of love, stronger than death, that finis vitae sed non amoris, is a lie, useless and not even funny. So must one be resigned to being a clock that measures the passage of time, now out of order, now repaired, and whose mechanism generates despair and love as soon as its maker sets it going? Are we to grow used to the idea that every man relives ancient torments, which are all the more profound because they grow comic with repetition? That human existence should repeat itself, well and good, but that it should repeat itself like a hackneyed tune, or a record a drunkard keeps playing as he feeds coins into the jukebox… Must I go on living here then, among the objects we both had touched, in the air she had breathed? In the name of what? In the hope of her return? I hoped for nothing. And yet I lived in expectation. Since she had gone, that was all that remained. I did not know what achievements, what mockery, even what tortures still awaited me. I knew nothing, and I persisted in the faith that the time of cruel miracles was not past.” ― Stanisław Lem, Solaris “How could I have been so ignorant? she thinks. So stupid, so unseeing, so given over to carelessness. But without such ignorance, such carelessness, how could we live? If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next—if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions—you’d be doomed. You’d be as ruined as God. You’d be a stone. You’d never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You’d never love anyone, ever again. You’d never dare to.” ― Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin “What are you wishing for?’ Grace interrupted. ‘To kiss you,’ I said to her.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, Linger “He is the cheese to my macaroni.” ― Diablo Cody, Juno: The Shooting Script “The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person–without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.” ― Osho “And he knew that at that moment, they understood each other perfectly, and when he told her what he was going to do now, she would not say ‘be careful’ or ‘don’t do it’, but she would accept his decision because she would not have expected anything less of him.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince “Don’t be afraid to lose him, because if a man truly loves you, he’s not going anywhere” ― Steve Harvey, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment “Just knowing you exist changed the world for me.” ― Tiffanie DeBartolo, God-Shaped Hole “Me quota ang pag-ibig. Sa bawat limang umiibig, isa lang ang magiging maligaya. Ang iba, iibig sa di sila iniibig. Iibig nang di natututo. O iibig sa wala. O di iibig kailanman.” ― Ricky Lee, Para Kay B “After dinner or lunch or whatever it was — with my crazy 12-hour night I was no longer sure what was what — I said, “Look, baby, I’m sorry, but don’t you realize that this job is driving me crazy? Look, let’s give it up. Let’s just lay around and make love and take walks and talk a little. Let’s go to the zoo. Let’s look at animals. Let’s drive down and look at the ocean. It’s only 45 minutes. Let’s play games in the arcades. Let’s go to the races, the Art Museum, the boxing matches. Let’s have friends. Let’s laugh. This kind of life like everybody else’s kind of life: it’s killing us.” ― Charles Bukowski, Post Office “Kitten, your hands are heaven and your eyes are my home.” ― Jeaniene Frost, This Side of the Grave “When someone you love says goodbye you can stare long and hard at the door they closed and forget to see all the doors God has open in front of you.” ― Shannon L. Alder “I loved him. I couldn’t pinpoint what made me so certain, but I knew it then, as surely as I knew my name or the color of the sky or any fact written in a book. Could he feel it, too? Maxon broke the kiss and looked at me. “You’re so pretty when you are a mess.” I laughed nervously. “Thank you. For that and for the rain and for not giving up.” He ran his fingers along my cheek and nose and chin. “You’re worth it. I don’t think that you get that. You’re worth it to me.” ― Kiera Cass, The One “Love all God’s creation, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of light. Love the animals, love the plants, love each separate thing. If thou love each thing thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all; and when once thou perceive this, thou wilt thenceforward grow every day to a fuller understanding of it: until thou come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov “You have within you,right now,everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you.” ― Brian Tracy “The room fell quiet. And as I read down the list of over one hundred and fifty eight-grade boys, I realized that to me, there had only ever been one boy.” ― Wendelin Van Draanen, Flipped “You seem to think you have a choice,” Cam said. “But you have it backwards. Love chooses you. The shadow moves as the sun commands.” ― Lisa Kleypas, Married By Morning “When I talk about unrequited love, most of you probably think about romantic love, but there are many other kinds of love that are not adequately returned, if they are returned at all. An angry adolescent may not love her mother back as her mother loves her; an abusive father doesn’t return the innocent open love of his young child. But grief is the ultimate unrequieted love. However hard and however long we love someone who has died, they can never love us back. At least that is how it feels…” ― Rosamund Lupton, Sister “I’m sort of… coming off a bad relationship” “When did it end?” “Slightly before it started.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Attachments “Falling In Love Is Like Owning A Dog. Throw things away and love will bring them back, again, and again, and again. But most of all, love needs love, lots of it. And in return, love loves you and never stops.” ― Taylor Mali “Two seconds later, the sound of an alarm filled my ears. ”What did you do?” I said over the noise as he backed up towards the bathroom door. ”The girl who gave you the note?” ”Yes…” ”I caught her staring at my lighter.” I blinked. ”You gave a child, in a psych ward , a lighter?” His eyes crinkled at the corners. ”She seemed trustworthy.” ”You’re sick,” I said, but smiled. ”Hey, nobody’s perfect. ” Noah smiled back.” ― Michelle Hodkin, The Evolution of Mara Dyer “I want you. I want you so badly I can’t stand it. When you left, it felt like the world got darker. Like I couldn’t truly see anything. Couldn’t feel anything.” ― Rachel Vincent, Alpha
