“Love never dies.” ― Lauren Kate, Torment “I’ve met a man and fallen in love with him. I allowed myself to fall in love for one simple reason: I’m not expecting anything to come of it. I know that, in three months’ time, I’ll be far away and he’ll be just a memory, but I couldn’t stand living without love any longer; I had reached my limit… Generally speaking, these meetings occur when we reach a limit, when we need to die and be reborn emotionally. These meeting are waiting for us, but more often than not, we avoid them happening. If we are desperate, though, if we have nothing to lose, or if we are full of enthusiasm for life, then the unknown reveals itself, and our universe changes directions.” ― Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes “I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you” ― Elizabeth Barrett Browning “What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined for life–to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting?” ― George Eliot, Adam Bede “Everything is clearer when you’re in love.” ― John Lennon “I’m guilty of giving people more chances than they deserve but when I’m done, I’m done.” ― Turcois Ominek “We are born in one day. We die in one day. We can change in one day. And we can fall in love in one day. Anything can happen in just one day.” ― Gayle Forman, Just One Day “Love is a possible strength in an actual weakness.” ― Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd “Poor fellow! I think he is in love with you.’ I am not aware of it. And to me it is one of the most odious things in a girl’s life, that there must always be some supposition of falling in love coming between her and any man who is kind to her… I have no ground for the nonsensical vanity of fancying everybody who comes near me is in love with me.” ― George Eliot “I love you, even if there isn’t any me, or any love, or even any life. I love you.” ― Zelda Fitzgerald “Everything about her has to do with me.” ― Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell “Tell me then, does love make one a fool or do only fools fall in love?” ― Orhan Pamuk, My Name is Red “We’d read about sirens in English this fall; Greek mythology bullshit about women so beautiful, their voices so enchanting, that men did anything for them. Turned out that mythology crap was real because every time I saw her, I lost my mind.” ― Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits “When you start to really know someone, all his physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in his energy, recognize the scent of his skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.” ― Lisa Unger, Beautiful Lies “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.” ― Martin Luther King Jr. “Love comes with a knife, not some shy question, and not with fears for its reputation!” ― Jalaluddin Rumi “He loved her. Jay Heaton, her best friend since childhood was in love with her. He didn’t say it but she knew that it was true. And the part that really freaked her out, the part that caught her completely off guard, is that he wasn’t alone. Because even though she’d been denying it for a long, long time, it had always been there… waiting beneath the surface of their friendship. And now that it was out there was no going back. And it was so weird to even be thinking it but…… she was in love with him too.” ― Kimberly Derting, The Body Finder “But you’re so busy changing the world Just one smile can change all of mine” ― Jack Johnson “I thought I was going to sweat five years before I’d feel like this.” “I wanted it as much as you did. I’ve just got a hell of a poker face” I smiled, pressing my lips against his.” ― Jamie McGuire, Beautiful Disaster “Most true is it that ‘beauty is in the eye of the gazer.’ My master’s colourless, olive face, square, massive brow, broad and jetty eyebrows, deep eyes, strong features, firm, grim mouth, — all energy, decision, will, — were not beautiful, according to rule; but they were more than beautiful to me; they were full of an interest, an influence that quite mastered me, — that took my feelings from my own power and fettered them in his. I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously arrived, green and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.” ― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre “People accuse me of falling in love easily. It just means that I’m able to see the beauty in most of the people who cross paths with me and I appreciate it for what it is and also for what it isn’t. Love is imperfect. Falling for someone’s flaws is just as necessary as falling for their strengths. And people like myself, who fall into love easily, are sometimes the loneliest souls around at the end of the day.” ― Ashly Lorenzana “But you cant shut everyone out. I mean you have to have someone to love. . .someone to hold on to. . . someone–” ― Hubert Selby Jr., Requiem for a Dream “Find a woman who makes you feel more alive. She won’t make life perfect but she’ll make it infinitely more interesting. And then love her with all that’s in you.” ― Gayle Roper, Shadows on the Sand “To see and feel one’s beloved naked for the first time is one of life’s pure, irreducible epiphanies. If there is a true religion in the universe, it must include that truth of contact or be forever hollow. To make love to the one true person who deserves that love is one of the few absolute rewards of being a human being, balancing all of the pain, loss, awkwardness, loneliness, idiocy, compromise, and clumsiness that go with the human condition. To make love to the right person makes up for a lot of mistakes.” ― Dan Simmons, The Rise of Endymion “Nobody knows you. You don’t know yourself. And I, who am half in love with you, What am I in love with? My own imaginings?” ― D.H. Lawrence, The Complete Poems “Is it possible not to ever know your type-not to even know you have a type-until quite suddenly you do?” ― Jennifer E. Smith, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight “Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke “You know I meant it. I am human. And male. And not remotely blind. Do you want me to say it again? You are distractingly, even if-that-is-not-a-real-word pretty. You are so pretty that I bullied Clay Whitaker into drawing me a picture of you so I could look at you when you aren’t around. You are so pretty that one of these days I’m going to lose a finger in my garage because I can’t concentrate with you so close to me. You are so pretty that I wish you weren’t so I wouldn’t want to hit every guy at school who looks at you, especially my best friend.” ― Katja Millay, The Sea of Tranquility “I want him to see the flowers in my eyes and hear the songs in my hands.” ― Francesca Lia Block, Dangerous Angels “Because I trust in the ever-changing climate of the heart. (At least, today I feel that way.) I think it is necessary to have many experiences for the sake of feeling something; for the sake of being challenged, and for the sake of being expressive, to offer something to someone else, to learn what we are capable of.” ― Jason Mraz
