“We should love, not fall in love, because everything that falls, gets broken.” ― Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift “The truth was…he was in love with her. Totally over-the-line, no-going-back, not-even-dead-would-he-part kind of shit.” ― J.R. Ward, Lover Mine “Nice costume,” he said. “Ditto. I can tell you put a lot of thought into yours.” Amusement curled his mouth. “If you don’t like it, I can take it off.” ― Becca Fitzpatrick, Finale “The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time. The best time to love is now.” ― Rick Warren “Till I loved I never lived.” ― Emily Dickinson “You are what happiness means to me. And I would rather have today with you than forever with anyone else.” ― Michelle Hodkin, The Retribution of Mara Dyer “Why did he have to be so gorgeous? Why did he have to stand so close, and why did I still love him so much? ” ― Jeaniene Frost, One Foot in the Grave “I am two fools, I know, For loving, and for saying so.” ― John Donne, The Complete English Poems “Give me the Love that leads the way The Faith that nothing can dismay The Hope no disappointments tire The Passion that’ll burn like fire Let me not sink to be a clod Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God” ― Amy Carmichael “Do people look the same when they go to heaven, mommy?” “I don’t know. I don’t think so.” “Then how do people recognize each other?” “I don’t know, sweetie. They just feel it. You don’t need your eyes to love, right?” ― R.J. Palacio, Wonder “I had never thought I could love another person this much. I also never thought I’d live in such fear of losing another person. Was this how everyone in love felt? Did they all cling tightly to their beloved and wake up terrified in the middle of the night, afraid of being alone? Was that an inevitable way of life when you loved so deeply? Or was it just those of us who walked on a precipice who lived in such panic?” ― Richelle Mead, The Fiery Heart “You know what the secret is? It’s so simple. We love one another. We’re nice to one another. Do you know how rare that is? – Carmen” ― Ann Brashares, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants “To love is easy, to be in a relationship is extremely difficult.” ― Santosh Kalwar, Quote Me Everyday “Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.” ― Roman Payne, Cities & Countries “I cannot compromise my respect for your love. You can keep your love, I will keep my respect.” ― Amit Kalantri “There is love of course. And then there’s life, its enemy.” ― Jean Anouilh “For she had eyes and chose me.” ― William Shakespeare, Othello “You have to be very fond of men. Very, very fond. You have to be very fond of them to love them. Otherwise they’re simply unbearable.” ― Marguerite Duras “Your problem is you don’t understand what that word means. People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then they leave.” ― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love “Love is not primarily a relationship to a specific person; it is an attitude, an ordination of character which determines the relatedness of the person to the whole world as a whole, not toward one object of love” ― Erich Fromm “I’ll follow thee and make a heaven of hell, To die upon the hand I love so well.” ― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream “I really don’t even know you, and yet, in my life, you are forever entangled; to my history, inextricably bound.” ― Sarah Ockler, Twenty Boy Summer “She imagines him imagining her. This is her salvation. In spirit she walks the city, traces its labyrinths, its dingy mazes: each assignation, each rendezvous, each door and stair and bed. What he said, what she said, what they did, what they did then. Even the times they argued, fought, parted, agonized, rejoined. How they’d loved to cut themselves on each other, taste their own blood. We were ruinous together, she thinks. But how else can we live, these days, except in the midst of ruin?” ― Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin “How ’bout a shot of truth in that denial cocktail.” ― Jennifer Salaiz “At first we had so much to catch up on we were talking a hundred words a second, barely even listening to the ends of one another’s sentences before moving onto the next. And there was laughing. Lots of laughing. Then the laughing stopped and there was this silence. What the hell was it? It was like the world stopped turning in that instant. Like everyone around us had disappeared. Like everything at home was forgotten about. It was as if those few minutes on this world were created just for us and all we could do was look at each other. It was like he was seeing my face for the first time. He looked confused but kind of amused. Exactly how I felt. Because I was sitting on the grass with my best friend Alex, and that was my best friend Alex’s face and nose and eyes and lips, but they seemed different. So I kissed him. I seized the moment and I kissed him,” ― Cecelia Ahern, Love, Rosie “Every time I close my eyes, it’s like a dark paradise. No one compares to you, but there’s no you, except in my dreams tonight” ― Lana Del Rey “But what can be done, the one who loves must share the fate of the one he loves.” ― Mikhail Bulgakov, The Master and Margarita “Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.” ― bell hooks “When you love you should not think you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.” ― Kahlil Gibran “You asked me to go out with you. I know you probably changed your mind. But you should know, the answer was yes. It’s always been yes when it comes to you.” ― Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye
