“A man in love can do extraordinary things, I don’t care if you’re an angel, you’re my angel, and I won’t let you go.” ― Alexandra Adornetto, Halo “She had loved him for such a long time, she thought. How was it that she did now know him at all?” ― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince “I threw myself into that fire, threw myself into it, into him, and let myself burn.” ― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Thorns and Roses “A truth should exist, it should not be used like this. If I love you is that a fact or a weapon?” ― Margaret Atwood “I’ve always loved strong women, which is lucky for me because once you’re over about twenty-five there is no other kind. Women blow my mind. The stuff that routinely gets done to them would make most men curl up and die, but women turn to steel and keep on coming. Any man who claims he’s not into strong women is fooling himself mindless; he’s into strong women who know how to pout prettily and put on baby voices, and who will end up keeping his balls in her makeup bags.” ― Tana French, Faithful Place “Whatever happened to the dragon?” I mustered my primmest tone. “He has a name, you know.” Adrian pulled back and gave me a curious look. “I didn’t know, actually. What’d you decide on?” “Hopper.” When Adrian laughed, I added, “Best rabbit ever. He’d be proud to know his name is being passed on.” “Yes, I’m sure he would. Did you name the Mustang too?” “I think you mean the Ivashkinator.” He stared at me in wonder. “I told you I loved you, right? “Yes,” I assured him. “Many times.” ― Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell “Must I go bound while you go free Must I love a manwho doesn’t love me Must I be born with so little art As to love a man who’ll break my Heart” ― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince “…I told him a story of two people. Two people who shouldn’t have met, and who didn’t like each other much when they did, but who found they were the only two people in the world who could possibly have understood each other.” ― Jojo Moyes, Me Before You “Remember. The way you make love is the way God will be with you.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi “The words ‘I Love You’ kill, and resurrect millions, in less than a second.” ― Aberjhani, Elemental: The Power of Illuminated Love “I have come from the End of the World. From the River of Dreams, through the gauntlet and the Briar and the Deep Wyld, in order to stand before you today. I have but one request—to take my place at your side. To resume my duty as your knight, and to protect you and your kingdom for as long as I draw breath.” ― Julie Kagawa, The Iron Knight “The only queer people are those who don’t love anybody.” ― Rita Mae Brown “I’m not married,” he said softly, “because I can’t stomach the idea of marrying a woman inferior to me in mind and spirit. It would mean the death of my soul.” ― Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass “Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.” ― Mother Teresa “You have my whole heart. You always did.” ― Cormac McCarthy, The Road “Yes, I understand why things had to happen this way. I understand his reason for causing me pain. But mere understanding does not chase away the hurt. It does not call upon the sun when dark clouds have loomed over me. Let the rain come then if it must come! And let it wash away the dust that hurt my eyes!” ― Jocelyn Soriano, Mend My Broken Heart “L’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle.” ― Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy “Aside from the obvious, Francesca, what do you want in return for supplying information?” Bones asked, getting back to the subject. “You to take me,” she replied at once. “Not gonna happen!” I spat, squeezing him possessively. Three sets of widened eyes fixed on me. That’s when I realized that what I had a firm grip on was no longer his hand.” ― Jeaniene Frost, Halfway to the Grave “Memory is a funny thing. When I was in the scene, I hardly paid it any mind. I never stopped to think of it as something that would make a lasting impression, certainly never imagined that eighteen years later I would recall it in such detail. I didn’t give a damn about the scenery that day. I was thinking about myself. I was thinking about the beautiful girl walking next to me. I was thinking about the two of us together, and then about myself again. It was the age, that time of life when every sight, every feeling, every thought came back, like a boomerang, to me. And worse, I was in love. Love with complications. The scenery was the last thing on my mind.” ― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood “Amor, ch’al cor gentile ratto s’apprende prese costui de la bella persona che mi fu tolta; e ‘l modo ancor m’offende. Amor, che a nullo amato amar perdona, Mi prese del costui piacer sì forte, Che, come vedi, ancor non m’abbandona…” “Love, which quickly arrests the gentle heart, Seized him with my beautiful form That was taken from me, in a manner which still grieves me. Love, which pardons no beloved from loving, took me so strongly with delight in him That, as you see, it still abandons me not…” ― Dante Alighieri, Inferno: A New Verse Translation “Why, darling, I don’t live at all when I’m not with you.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms “You get use to someone—start to like them, even—and they leave. In the end, everyone leaves.” ― Rachel Ward, Numbers “I have learned, that the person I have to ask for forgiveness from the most is: myself. You must love yourself. You have to forgive yourself, everyday, whenever you remember a shortcoming, a flaw, you have to tell yourself “That’s just fine”. You have to forgive yourself so much, until you don’t even see those things anymore. Because that’s what love is like.” ― C. JoyBell C. “She was bored. She loved, had capacity to love, for love, to give and accept love. Only she tried twice and failed twice to find somebody not just strong enough to deserve it, earn it, match it, but even brave enough to accept it.” ― William Faulkner, The Town “I am your moon and your moonlight too I am your flower garden and your water too I have come all this way, eager for you Without shoes or shawl I want you to laugh To kill all your worries To love you To nourish you.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi “A weed is but an unloved flower.” ― Ella Wheeler Wilcox “I’d like to get away from earth awhile And then come back to it and begin over. May no fate wilfully misunderstand me And half grant what I wish and snatch me away Not to return. Earth’s the right place for love: I don’t know where it’s likely to go better.” ― Robert Frost, Birches “Being in love with someone who doesn’t even know you exist isn’t the worst thing in the world. In fact, it’s quite the oppostie. Almost like passing in a term paper that you know sucked, but having that period of time where you haven’t gotten your grade back yet — that kind of exhale where you haven’t been rejected, although you pretty much know how it’s going to turn out.” ― Tonya Hurley, Ghostgirl “The whole image is that eternal suffering awaits anyone who questions God’s infinite love. That’s the message we’re brought up with, isn’t it? Believe or die! Thank you, forgiving Lord, for all those options.” ― Bill Hicks “Because I’ve got a lot more terms of endearment to use. Honey pie. Sugarplum. Bread pudding.” “Why are they all high-calorie foods?” ― Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell
