“It’s easy to cry when you realize that everyone you love will reject you or die.” ― Chuck Palahniuk “I reserve the right to love many different people at once, and to change my prince often.” ― Anaïs Nin “I want someone who is fierce and will love me until death and knows that love is as strong as death, and be on my side forever and ever. I want someone who will destroy and be destroyed by me.” ― Jeanette Winterson, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit “Not like this. He wanted it to be real.” ― Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire “If you listen to the wind very carefully, you’ll be able to hear me whisper my love for you.” ― Andrew Davidson “Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons you must leave. Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is the love that will be ready.” ― Nayyirah Waheed “How can love be worthy of its name if one selects solely the pretty things and leaves out the hardships? It is easy to enjoy the good and dislike the bad. Anybody can do that. The real challenge is to love the good and the bad together, not because you need to take the rough with the smooth but because you need to go beyond such descriptions and accept love in its entirety.” ― Elif Shafak, The Forty Rules of Love “The fiercest anger of all, the most incurable, Is that which rages in the place of dearest love.” ― Euripides, Medea and Other Plays “You know that I could as soon forget you as my existence!” ― Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights “I could still smell her on my fur. It clung to me, a memory of another world. I was drunk with it, with the scent of her. I’d got too close. The smell of summer on her skin, the half-recalled cadence of her voice, the sensation of her fingers on my fur. Every bit of me sang with the memory of her closeness. Too close. I couldn’t stay away.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver “The truth was I knew, after all those flat January days, that I deserved better. I deserved I love yous and kiwi fruits and warriors coming to my door, besotted with love. I deserved pictures of my face in a thousand expressions, and the warmth of a baby’s kick beneath my hand. I deserved to grow, and to change, to become all the girls I could be over the course of my life, each one better than the last.” ― Sarah Dessen “Please,” he says. “I’m begging you to stop.” I still. “I can’t stomach your pain,” he says. “I can feel it so strongly and it’s making me crazy- please,” he says to me. “Don’t be sad. Or hurt. Or guilty. You’ve done nothing wrong.” “I’m sorry-” “Don’t be sorry, either,” he says. “God, the only reason I’m not going to kill Kent for this is because I know it would only upset you more.” ― Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me “His eyes were on his heart, completely caught up in his work. ‘Just something kicking around in my head. Reminds me of you. Fiery and sweet, all at the same time. A flame in the dark, lighting my way.’ His voice… his words… I recognized one of his spirit-driven moments. It should’ve unnerved me, but there was something sensual about the way he spoke, something that made my breath catch. A flame in the dark.” ― Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell “I recall certain moments, let us call them icebergs in paradise, when after having had my fill of her –after fabulous, insane exertions that left me limp and azure-barred–I would gather her in my arms with, at last, a mute moan of human tenderness (her skin glistening in the neon light coming from the paved court through the slits in the blind, her soot-black lashes matted, her grave gray eyes more vacant than ever–for all the world a little patient still in the confusion of a drug after a major operation)–and the tenderness would deepen to shame and despair, and I would lull and rock my lone light Lolita in my marble arms, and moan in her warm hair, and caress her at random and mutely ask her blessing, and at the peak of this human agonized selfless tenderness (with my soul actually hanging around her naked body and ready to repent), all at once, ironically, horribly, lust would swell again–and ‘oh, no,’ Lolita would say with a sigh to heaven, and the next moment the tenderness and the azure–all would be shattered.” ― Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita “You can’t, if you can’t feel it, if it never Rises from the soul, and sways The heart of every single hearer, With deepest power, in simple ways. You’ll sit forever, gluing things together, Cooking up a stew from other’s scraps, Blowing on a miserable fire, Made from your heap of dying ash. Let apes and children praise your art, If their admiration’s to your taste, But you’ll never speak from heart to heart, Unless it rises up from your heart’s space.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust: First Part “Take it from me: love has all the lasting permanence of a rainbow- beautiful while it’s there, and just as likely to have disappeared by the time you blink.” ― Jodi Picoult “I just don’t see why the past has to matter.” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Fallen Angels “The Court of Dreams. The people who knew that there was a price, and one worth paying, for that dream. The bastard- born warriors, the Illyrian half breed, the monster trapped in a beautiful body, the dreamer born into a court of nightmares…And the huntress with an artist’s soul.” ― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury “You think I’m cute?” He said thinkly, pulling on her hand. She was glad he couldn’t see her face. “I think you’re…” Beautiful. Breathtaking. Like the person in a Greek myth who makes one of the gods stop caring about being a god.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park “I would never let anyone else borrow my heart if I know there’s a chance in hell you might want it back.” ― Colleen Hoover, November 9 “He shook his head, just looking at me. – “What?” I asked. – “Nothing” he said. – “Why are you looking at me like that?” Augustus half smiled. “Because you`re beautiful. I enjoy looking at beautiful people, and I decided a while ago not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence.” A brief awkward silence ensued. Augustus plowed through: “I mean, particularly given that, as you so deliciously pointed out, all of this will end in oblivion and everything.” I kind of scoffed or sighed or exhaled in a way that was vaguely coughy and then said, “I`m not beau-” – “You are like a millennial Natalie Portman. Like V for Vendetta Natalie Portman.” – “Never seen it.” – “Really?” he asked. “Pixie-haired gorgeous girl dislikes authority and can`t help but fall for a boy she knows is trouble. It`s your autobiography, so far as I can tell.” His every syllable flirted. Honestly, he kind of turned me on. I didn`t even know that guys could turn me on – not, like, in real life.” ― John Green “Love is blind, they say–but isn’t it more that love makes us see too much? Isn’t it more that love floods our brain with sights and sounds, so that everything looks bigger, brighter, more lovely than ever before?” ― Susan Fletcher, Eve Green “I realized when you look at your mother, you are looking at the purest love you will ever know.” ― Mitch Albom, For One More Day “A man always finds it hard to realize that he may have finally lost a woman’s love, however badly he may have treated her.” ― Arthur Conan Doyle, The Musgrave Ritual “To wish was to hope, and to hope was to expect” ― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility “So many believe that it is love that grows, but it is the knowing that grows and love simply expands to contain it.” ― Wm. Paul Young, The Shack “Better to put your heart on the line, risk everything, and walk away with nothing than play it safe. Love is a lot of things, but “safe” isn’t one of them.” ― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass “Falling into ruin was a bit like falling in love: Both descents stripped you bare and left you as you were at your core. And both endings are equally painful.” ― J.R. Ward, Lover Unbound “he is both the source of my happiness and the one i want to share it with.” ― David Levithan, Will Grayson, Will Grayson “I want my world to start and end with you.” ― E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey
