“Love, when spelled backwards and read phonetically, reads evil” ― Eminem “Fight for the only thing she knew was good enough, noble enough, powerful enough to be worth risking everything… Love.” ― Lauren Kate “I wore your promise on my finger for one year I’ll wear your name on my heart til I die Because you were my boy, you were my only boy forever.” ― Coco J. Ginger “…love is the sum of our choices, the strength of our commitments, the ties that bind us together.” ― Emily Giffin, Love the One You’re With “What’s a fuck when what I want is love?” ― Henry Miller “No matter how close we are to another person, few human relationships are as free from strife, disagreement, and frustration as is the relationship you have with a good dog. Few human beings give of themselves to another as a dog gives of itself. I also suspect that we cherish dogs because their unblemished souls make us wish – consciously or unconsciously – that we were as innocent as they are, and make us yearn for a place where innocence is universal and where the meanness, the betrayals, and the cruelties of this world are unknown.” ― Dean Koontz, A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog “Brod’s life was a slow realization that the world was not for her, and that for whatever reason, she would never be happy and honest at the same time. She felt as if she were brimming, always producing and hoarding more love inside her. But there was no release… So she had to satisfy herself with the idea of love–loving the loving of things whose existence she didn’t care at all about. Love itself became the object of her love. She loved herself in love, she loved loving love, as love loves loving, and was able, in that way, to reconcile herself with a world that fell so short of what she would have hoped for. It was not the world that was the great and saving lie, but her willingness to make it beautiful and fair, to live a once-removed life, in a world once-removed from the one in which everyone else seemed to exist.” ― Jonathan Safran Foer “For there is no friend like a sister In calm or stormy weather; To cheer one on the tedious way, To fetch one if one goes astray, To lift one if one totters down, To strengthen whilst one stands” ― Christina Rossetti, Goblin Market and Other Poems “You are protected, in short, by your ability to love!” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince “I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. (Psalms 116:1-2 NIV)” ― Anonymous, Holy Bible: New International Version “Hearts Live By Being Wounded” ― Oscar Wilde “I write a lot of songs about love and I think that’s because to me love seems like this huge complicated thing. But it seems like every once in a while, two people get it figured out, two people get it right. And so I think the rest of us, we walk around daydreaming about what that might be like. To find that one great love, where all of a sudden everything that seemed to be so complicated, became simple. And everything that used to seem so wrong all of a sudden seemed right because you were with the person who made you feel fearless.” ― Taylor Swift “She’s mad, but she’s magic. There’s no lie in her fire.” ― Charles Bukowski “And I’m dying to know, is it killing you like it’s killing me? And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now.” ― Taylor Swift “I come here with no expectations, only to profess, now that I am at liberty to do so, that my heart is and always will be yours.” ― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility “None of us can choose where we shall love…” ― Susan Kay, Phantom “Loving’s pretty easy. It’s letting someone love you that’s hard.” ― Rita Mae Brown, Riding Shotgun “Right now we are here, and nothing can mar our perfection, or steal the joy of this perfect moment.” ― Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife “The most confused you will ever get is when you try to convince your heart and spirit of something your mind knows is a lie.” ― Shannon L. Alder “Remembering. Forgetting. I’m not sure which is worse.” ― Kelley Armstrong, The Calling “The language of love letters is the same as suicide notes.” ― Courtney Love, Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love “I am not a believer in love at first sight. For love, in its truest form, is not the thing of starry-eyed or star-crossed lovers, it is far more organic, requiring nurturing and time to fully bloom, and, as such, seen best not in its callow youth but in its wrinkled maturity. Like all living things, love, too, struggles against hardship, and in the process sheds its fatuous skin to expose one composed of more than just a storm of emotion–one of loyalty and divine friendship. Agape. And though it may be temporarily blinded by adversity, it never gives in or up, holding tight to lofty ideals that transcend this earth and time–while its counterfeit simply concludes it was mistaken and quickly runs off to find the next real thing.” ― Richard Paul Evans, The Letter “He was afraid of defiling the love which filled his soul.” ― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina “Love is illogical. You fall into it like a manhole. Then you’re just stuck. You die in love more than you live in love.” ― Tarryn Fisher, Dirty Red “I haven’t had that one great love, which is good. I don’t want that to be in the past, I want it to be in the future.” ― Taylor Swift “Almost all the time, you tell yourself you’re loving somebody when you’re just using them. This only looks like love.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters “And then I opened my eyes and it was just Grace and me – nothing anywhere but Grace and me – she pressing her lips together as though she were keeping my kiss inside her, and me, holding this moment that was as fragile as a bird in my hands.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver “Eternity is in love with the productions of time.” ― William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell “I’ve no more business to marry Edgar Linton than I have to be in heaven and if the wicked man in there had not brought Heathcliff so low I shouldn’t have thought of it. It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now so he shall never know how I love him and that not because he’s handsome Nelly but because he’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of his and mine are the same and Linton’s is as different as a moonbeam from lightning or frost from fire.” ― Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights “Just because love don’t look the way you think it should, don’t mean you don’t have it.” ― Leslye Walton, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
