“You’ll never know everything about anything, especially something you love.” ― Julia Child “Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius.” ― Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart “One can be very much in love with a woman without wishing to spend the rest of one’s life with her.” ― W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil “There hadn’t been one specific moment. It was like gradualy waking up. You go from being asleep to the space between dreaming and awake and then into consciousness. It’s a slow process, but when you’re awake, there’s no mistaking it. There was no mistaking that it had been love.” ― Jenny Han, We’ll Always Have Summer “I can chase you, and I can catch you, but there is nothing I can do to make you mine.” ― Morrissey “I recognized you instantly. All of our lives flashed through my mind in a split second. I felt a pull so strongly towards you that I almost couldn’t stop it.” ― J. Sterling, In Dreams “My little dog—a heartbeat at my feet.” ― Edith Wharton “The Prince found Buttercup waiting unhappily outside his chamber doors. It’s my letter,’ she began. ‘I cannot make it right.’ Come in, come in,’ the Prince said gently. ‘Maybe we can help you.’ She sat down in the same chair as before. ‘All right, I’ll close my eyes and listen; read to me.’ Westley, my passion, my sweet, my only my own. Come back, come back. I shall kill myself otherwise. Yours in torment, Buttercup.’ She looked at Humperdinck. ‘Well? Do you think I’m throwing myself at him?” ― William Goldman, The Princess Bride “Although love could grow in times of peace, it tempered in battle. Daddy told me once – when I’d said something about how perfect his relationship with Mom was – that I should have seen the first five years of their marriage, that they’d fought like hellions, crashed into each other like two giant stones. That eventually they’d eroded each other into the perfect fit, become a single wall, nestled into each other’s curves and hollows, her strengths chinking his weaknesses, her weaknesses reinforced by his strengths.” ― Karen Marie Moning, Dreamfever “It is beautiful to express love and even more beautiful to feel it.” ― Dejan Stojanovic “Why?” she screamed. “Are you crazy? You know the English subjunctive, you understand trigonometry, you can read Marx, and you don’t know the answer to something as simple as that? Why do you even have to ask? Why do you have to make a girl SAY something like this? I like you more than I like him, that’s all. I wish I had fallen in love with somebody a little more handsome, of course. But I didn’t. I fell in love with you!” ― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood “Love was that way. You could not render it in black or white. It always came down to the strange, blended shades of grey.” ― Jodi Picoult “I wonder why we always deny love. I remember in middle school, if you were accused of the crime of loving, you screamed denials constantly and stopped ever even looking at the boy you were accused of liking. The boys could destroy each other by yodeling, “An-drew lo-oves Jen-nie,” and both Andrew and Jennie would flinch and blush. Love is this great thing that most songs and books and poems and lives are all about. So the minute we actually think there might be love around, we start laughing and pretending and hiding from it.” ― Caroline B. Cooney, The Girl Who Invented Romance “The silence is the worst part of any fight, because it’s made up of all the things we wish we could say, if only we had the guts.” ― Pete Wentz, Gray “He touched my cheek softly, his eyes intense as they gazed into mine.”You might have to teach me a little about the human world, but I’m willing to learn if it means being close to you.” He smiled again, a wry quirk of his lips. “I’m sure I can adapt to ‘being human’ if I must. If you want me to attend classes as a student, I can do that. If you want to move to a large city to pursue your dreams, I will follow. And if, someday, you wish to be married in a white gown and make this official in human eyes I’m willing to do that, too.” He leaned in, close enough for me to see my reflection in his silver gaze.” For better or worse, I’m afraid you’re stuck with me now.” ― Julie Kagawa, The Iron Queen “Whoever loves much, performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.” ― Vincent Van Gogh “ A woman with romance in her life lived as grandly as a queen, because her heart was treasured.” ― Nora Roberts, Bed of Roses “I’ve learned two things in my life. One that love is the beginning and end of all meaning. And two that it is the same thing whatever shape our souls have taken on this journey. Love is love. Is love. ” ― Clive Barker “We ought not to be weary of doing little things for the love of God, who regards not the greatness of the work, but the love with which it is performed.” ― Brother Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God “You scared the shit out of me last night, so forgive me if I don’t want to hear fine as an answer.” I rubbed my eyes, hoping it would keep the burning tears away. The warm water of the shower had finally calmed the tears, but the thought of Noah walking away brought them back. “What do you want to hear? That I’m exhausted? Terrified? Confused? That all I want to do is rest my head on your chest and sleep for hours, but that’s not going to happen because you’re leaving me?” “Yes,” he said quickly, then just as quick said, “No. Everything but the last part.” He paused. “Echo, how could you think I would leave you? How can you doubt how I feel?” “Because,” I said as I felt the familiar twisting in my stomach. “You saw me lose it. You saw me almost go insane.” The muscles in his shoulders visibly tensed. “I watched you battle against the worst memory of your life and I watched you win. Make no mistake, Echo. I battled right beside you. You need to find some trust in me … in us.” Noah inhaled and slowly let the air out. His stance softened and so did his voice. “If you’re scared, tell me. If you need to cry and scream, then do it. And you sure as hell don’t walk away from us because you think it would be better for me. Here’s the reality, Echo: I want to be by your side. If you want to go to the mall stark naked so you can show the world your scars, then let me hold your hand. If you want to see your mom, then tell me that, too. I may not always understand, but damn, baby, I’ll try.” ― Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits “To love someone, why do you need society’s approval and permission?” ― Ai Yazawa “If you’ll kiss me back,” he whispered huskily, brushing his lips along the curve of her jaw, “I’ll make it six million. If you’ll go to bed with me tonight,” he continued, losing himself in the scent of her perfume and the softness of her skin, “I’ll give you the world. But if you’ll move in with me,” he continued, dragging his mouth across her cheek to the corner of her lips, “I’ll do much better than that.” Unable to turn her face farther because his arm was in the way, and unable to turn her body because his body was in the way, Meredith tried to infuse disdain in her voice and simultaneously ignore the arousing touch of his tongue against her ear. “Six million dollars and the whole world!” she said in a slightly shaky voice. “What else could you possibly give me if I move in with you?” “Paradise.” Lifting his head, Matt took her chin between his thumb and forefinger and forced her to meet his gaze. In an aching, solemn voice he said, “I’ll give you paradise on a gold platter. Anything you want— everything you want. I come with it, of course. It’s a package deal.” Meredith wallowed audibly, mesmerized by the melting look in his silver eyes and the rich timbre of his deep voice. “We’ll be a family,” he continued, describing the paradise he was offering while he bent his head to her again. “We’ll have children … I’d like six,” he teased, his lips against her temple. “But I’ll settle for one. You don’t have to decide now.” She drew in a ragged breath and Matt decided he’d pushed matters as far as he dared for one night. Straightening abruptly, he chucked her under her chin. “Think about it,” he suggested with a grin.” ― Judith McNaught, Paradise “She had been born for this man, and she had spent so many years trying to accept the fact that he had been born for someone else…” ― Julia Quinn, Romancing Mister Bridgerton “I caught myself thinking about falling in love with someone who I hoped was out there right now thinking about the possibility of me, but I quickly banished the notion. It was that kind of thinking that landed me in this situation to begin with. Hope can ruin you.” ― Perry Moore, Hero “The true miracle lies in our eagerness to allow, appreciate, and honor the uniqueness, and freedom of each sentient being to sing the song of their heart.” ― Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations “You can love someone you mistrust.” ― Emily Giffin, Baby Proof “Still, that’s the point of love; you love someone despite their flaws.” ― Sophie Kinsella, Shopaholic Takes Manhattan “إنني أحبك.. هذه هي المهنة الوحيدة التي أتقنها..” ― نزار قباني, كل عام وأنت حبيبتي “The love we’d shared always burned within me, no matter how often I told myself to move on, no matter how much the world did think I’d moved on.” ― Richelle Mead, Spirit Bound “Maybe it’s what we don’t say/that saves us.” ― Dorianne Laux, What We Carry
