“Colpo di fulmine. The thunderbolt, as Italians call it. When love strikes someone like lightning, so powerful and intense it can’t be denied. It’s beautiful and messy, cracking a chest open and spilling their soul out for the world to see. It turns a person inside out, and there’s no going back from it. Once the thunderbolt hits, your life is irrevocably changed.” ― J.M. Darhower, Sempre “Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.” ― Bruce Lee “You know that when I hate you, it is because I love you to a point of passion that unhinges my soul.” ― Julie de Lespinasse “The only way love can last a lifetime is if it’s unconditional. The truth is this: love is not determined by the one being loved but rather by the one choosing to love.” ― Stephen Kendrick, The Love Dare “When you love someone, they become a part of who you are. They’re in everything you do. They’re in the air you breathe and the water you drink and the blood in your veins. Their touch stays on your skin and their voice stays in your ears and their thoughts stay in your mind. You know their dreams because their nightmares pierce your heart and their good dreams are your dreams too. And you don’t think they’re perfect, but you know their flaws, the deep-down truth of them, and the shadows of all their secrets, and they don’t frighten you away; in fact you love them more for it, because you don’t want perfect. You want them. You want—” He broke off then, as if realizing everyone was looking at him again. “You want what?” said Dru with enormous eyes. “Nothing,” Julian said. “I’m just talking.” ― Cassandra Clare, Lady Midnight “I will not wait to love as best as I can. We thought we were young and that there would be time to love well sometime in the future. This is a terrible way to think. It is no way to live, to wait to love.” ― Dave Eggers, What Is the What “The problem with marriage is that it ends every night after making love, and it must be rebuilt every morning before breakfast.” ― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez “It may be important to great thinkers to examine the world, to explain and despise it. But I think it is only important to love the world, not to despise it, not for us to hate each other, but to be able to regard the world and ourselves and all beings with love, admiration and respect.” ― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha “My girlfriend is sad and quiet and keeps me up all night worrying about her.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park “Sam came around the side of the car and stopped dead when he saw me. “Oh my God, what is THAT?” I used my thumb and middle finger to flick the multicolored pom-pom on top of my head. “In my language, we call it a HAT. It keeps my ears warm.” “Oh my God,” Sam said again, and closed the distance between us. He cupped my face in his hands and studied me. “It’s horribly cute.” He kissed me, looked at the hat, and then he kissed me again. I vowed never to lose the pom-pom hat.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver “When you find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stand in front of you when other’s cast stones, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who will hold your hand when your sick, who thinks your pretty without makeup, the one who turns to his friends and say, ‘that’s her’, the one that would bear your rejection because losing you means losing his will to live, who kisses you when you screw up, watches the stars and names one for you and will hold and rock that baby for hours so you can sleep…..you marry him all over again.” ― Shannon L. Alder “Love God and He will enable you to love others even when they disappoint you.” ― Francine Rivers, And the Shofar Blew “There will never be no love at all.” ― Bob Marley “I love you and it’s getting worse.” ― Joseph E. Morris “I’m sorry. I know you loved her. It was hard not to.” ― John Green, Looking for Alaska “Well my music was different in high school; I was singing about love—you know, things I don’t care about anymore.” ― Lady Gaga “You can’t hurt me the way you think you can. But even if you could? I would rather die with the taste of you on my tongue than live and never touch you again. I’m in love with you, Mara. I love you. No matter what you do.” ― Michelle Hodkin, The Evolution of Mara Dyer “Someone once wrote that a novel should deliver a series of small astonishments. I get the same thing spending an hour with you.” ― E. Lockhart, We Were Liars “Except fang. I glared at him. “Go on, try to stop me, I dare you.” It was like the old days when we used to wrestle, each trying to get the better of the other. I was ready to take him down, my hands curled into fist. “I was just going to say be careful,” Fang told me. He stepped closer and brushed some hair out of my eyes. “And I’ve got your back.” He motioned with his head toward the torpedo chamber. Oh my God. It hit me like a tsunami then, how perfect he was for me, how no one else would ever, could ever, be so perfect for me, how he was everything I could possibly hope for, as a friend, boyfriend, maybe even more. He was it for me. There would be no more looking. I really, really loved him, with a whole new kind of love I’d never felt before, something that made every other kind of love I’d ever felt feel washed out and wimpy in comparison. I loved him with every cell in my body, every thought in my head, every feather in my wings, every breathe in my lungs. and air sacs. Too bad I was going out to face almost certain death. Right there in front of everyone, I threw my arms around his neck and smashed my mouth against his. He was startled for a second, then his strong arms wrapped around me so tightly I could hardly breathe. “ZOMG,” I heard Nudge whisper, but still fang and I kissed slanting our heads this way and that to get closer. I could have stood there and kissed him happily for the next millennium, but Angel, or what was left of her was still out there in the could dark ocean. Reluctantly, I ended the kiss, took a step back. Fang’s obsidian eyes were glittering brightly and his stoic face had a look of wonder on it.”Gotta go,” I said quietly. A half smile quirked his mouth. “Yeah. Hurry back.” I nodded and he stepped out of the air lock chamber, keeping his eyes fixed on me, memorizing me as he hit the switch that sealed the chamber. The doors hissed shut with a kind of finality, and I realized that my heart was beating so hard it felt like it was going to start snapping ribs. I was scared. I was crazily, deeply, incredibly, joyously, terrifyingly in love. I was on a death mission. Before my head simply exploded from so much emotion, I hit the large button that pressurized the air lock enough for the doors to open to the ocean outside. I really, really hoped that I would prove somewhat uncrushable, like Angel did. The door cracked open below me and I saw the first dark glint of frigid water.” ― James Patterson, Maximum Ride Five-Book Set “Everybody has a home team: It’s the people you call when you get a flat tire or when something terrible happens. It’s the people who, near or far, know everything that’s wrong with you and love you anyways. These are the ones who tell you their secrets, who get themselves a glass of water without asking when they’re at your house. These are the people who cry when you cry. These are your people, your middle-of-the-night, no-matter-what people.” ― Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way “Oh, it’s always the same,’ she sighed, ‘if you want men to behave well to you, you must be beastly to them; if you treat them decently they make you suffer for it.” ― W. Somerset Maugham, Of Human Bondage “I love you, in my mind where my thoughts reside, in my heart where my emotions live, and in my soul where my dreams are born. I love you.” ― Dee Henderson, The Healer “It was brave,” countered Issa. “It was rare. It was love, and it was beautiful.” ― Laini Taylor, Days of Blood & Starlight “الحب هو ذكاء المسافة، ألّا تقترب كثيرًا فتلغي اللهفة، ولا تبتعد طويلًا فتُنسى.” ― أحلام مستغانمي, الأسود يليق بك “A kiss on the beach when there is a full moon is the closest thing to heaven.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr. “and when all the wars are over, a butterfly will still be beautiful.” ― Ruskin Bond, Scenes from a Writer’s Life “Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made. ” ― Roger A. Caras “Love makes us such fools.” ― Leslye Walton, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender “I believe in love the verb, not the noun.” ― Greg Behrendt, He’s Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys “You can love a person dear to you with a human love, but an enemy can only be loved with divine love.” ― Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace
