“And in the end, we were all just humans.. drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.” ― Christopher Poindexter “Love blurs your vision; but after it recedes, you can see more clearly than ever. It’s like the tide going out, revealing whatever’s been thrown away and sunk: broken bottles, old gloves, rusting pop cans, nibbled fishbodies, bones. This is the kind of thing you see if you sit in the darkness with open eyes, not knowing the future. The ruin you’ve made.” ― Margaret Atwood, Cat’s Eye “Love is so unpredictable. That’s what makes it so great.” ― Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby “Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.” ― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass “I have known her longer, my smile said. True, you have been inside the circle of her arms, tasted her mouth, felt the warmth of her, and that is something I have never had. But there is a part of her that is only for me. You cannot touch it, no matter how hard you might try. And after she has left you I will still be here, making her laugh. My light shining in her. I will still be here long after she has forgotten your name.” ― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind “Frustration and Love can’t exist in the same place at the same time, so get real and start doing what you would rather be doing in life. Love your life. All of it. Even the heavy shit that happened to you when you were 8. All of it was and IS perfect.” ― Jason Mraz “In love, one and one are one.” ― Jean-Paul Sartre “This love of which I speak is slow to lose patience – it looks for a way of being constructive. Love is not possessive. Love is not anxious to impress nor does it cherish inflated ideas of its own ideas. Love has good manners and does not pursue selfish advantage. Love is not touchy. Love does not keep account of evil or gloat over the wickedness of other people. On the contrary, it is glad with all good men when truth prevails. Love knows no limits to its endurance, no end to its trust, no fading of its hope; it can outlast anything. It is, in fact, the one thing that stands when all else has fallen.” ― Elisabeth Elliot, Let Me Be a Woman “The whole world is divided for me into two parts: one is she, and there is all happiness, hope, light; the other is where she is not, and there is dejection and darkness…” ― Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace “I do my best thinking at night when everyone else is sleeping. No interruptions. No noise. I like the feeling of being awake when no one else is.” ― Jennifer Niven, All the Bright Places “Adam smiled cheerily. Ronan would start wars and burn cities for that true smile, elastic and amiable.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven King “I crossed a thousand leagues to come to you, and lost the best part of me along the way. Don’t tell me to leave.” ― George R.R. Martin, A Storm of Swords “I don’t want to know about love.’ ‘But you should, my child. You need to know about love. The things people will do for love. All truths come down to love, do they not? One way or another, they do. See, there is a difference between love and need. Sometimes, what you feel is immediate and without rhyme or reason.’ She sat up a little straighter. ‘Two people see each across a room or their skin brushes. Their souls recognize the person as their own. It doesn’t need time to figure it. The soul always knows… whether it’s right or wrong.” ― Jennifer L. Armentrout, Half-Blood “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. What then kills love? Only this: Neglect. Not to see you when you stand before me. Not to think of you in the little things. Not to make the road wide for you, the table spread for you. To choose you out of habit not desire, to pass the flower seller without a thought. To leave the dishes unwashed, the bed unmade, to ignore you in the mornings, make use of you at night. To crave another while pecking your cheek. To say your name without hearing it, to assume it is mine to call.” ― Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body “It shattered something inside me that hadn’t been broken before.” ― E. Lockhart, The Boyfriend List: 15 Guys, 11 Shrink Appointments, 4 Ceramic Frogs and Me, Ruby Oliver “A warrior does not give up what he loves, he finds the love in what he does” ― Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives “I really don’t see anything romantic in proposing. It is very romantic to be in love. But there is nothing romantic about a definite proposal. Why, one may be accepted. One usually is, I believe. Then the excitement is all over. The very essence of romance is uncertainty. If ever I get married, I’ll certainly try to forget the fact.” ― Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest “And Max, the king of all wild things, was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.” ― Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are “They were within twenty yards of each other, and so abrupt was his appearance, that it was impossible to avoid his sight. Their eyes instantly met, and the cheeks of each were overspread with the deepest blush. He absolutely started, and for a moment seemed immoveable from surprise; but shortly recovering himself, advanced towards the party, and spoke to Elizabeth, if not in terms of perfect composure, at least of perfect civility.” ― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice “Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.” ― Chad Sugg “Your absence has not taught me to be alone, it merely has shown that when together we cast a single shadow on the wall.” ― Doug Fetherling “I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.” ― Elizabeth Barrett Browning “Falling in love is like getting hit by a truck and yet not being mortally wounded. just sick to your stomach, high one minute, low the next. Starving hungry but unable to eat. hot, cold, forever horny, full of hope and enthusiasm, with momentary depressions that wipe you out. It is also not being able to remove the smile from your face, loving life with a mad passionate intensity, and feeling ten years younger. Love does not appear with any warning signs. You fall into it as if pushed from a high diving board. No time to think about what’s happening. It’s inevitable. An event you can’t control. A crazy, heart-stopping, roller-coaster ride that just has to take its course.” ― Jackie Collins, Lucky “Perfect love is the most beautiful of all frustrations because it is more than one can express.” ― Charlie Chaplin “Brigan was saying her name, and he was sending her a feeling. It was courage and strength, and something else too, as if he were standing with her, as if he’d taken her within himself, letting her rest her entire body for a moment on his backbone, her mind in his mind, her heart in the fire of his. The fire of Brigan’s heart was astounding. Fire understood, and almost could not believe, that the feeling he was sending her was love.” ― Kristin Cashore, Fire “I believe in the immeasurable power of love; that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience “I would rather a romantic relationship turn into contempt than turn into apathy. The passion in the extremities make it appear as though it once meant something. We grow from hot or cold, but lukewarm is the biggest insult.” ― Criss Jami, Killosophy “That’s love: Two lonely persons keep each other safe and touch each other and talk to each other.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke “My point is that love is the most powerful motivator in the world. It spurs mortals to greatness. Their noblest, bravest acts are done for love.” ― Rick Riordan, The Lost Hero “I’d rather die on my own terms than live on theirs. I’d rather die loving Alex than live without him.” ― Lauren Oliver, Delirium
