“Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.” ― Dalai Lama XIV “If you spend your time hoping someone will suffer the consequences for what they did to your heart, then you’re allowing them to hurt you a second time in your mind.” ― Shannon L. Alder “You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist “The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson “That which God said to the rose, and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty, He said to my heart, and made it a hundred times more beautiful.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi “Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” ― Erica Jong, Fear of Flying “Sex without love is a meaningless experience, but as far as meaningless experiences go its pretty damn good.” ― Woody Allen “His breath hitched, and he regarded me hungrily. “You’re playing with fire, you know that?” “That’s weird, considering you’re an ice prin—” I didn’t get any further, as Ash leaned in and kissed me.” ― Julie Kagawa, Winter’s Passage “i carry your heart with me(i carry it in my heart)” ― E.E. Cummings, Selected Poems “There is nothing on earth more beautiful to me than your smile…no sound sweeter than your laughter…no pleasure greater than holding you in my arms. I realized today that I could never live without you, stubborn little hellion that you are. In this life and the next, you’re my only hope of happiness. Tell me, Lillian, dearest love…how can you have reached so far inside my heart?” ― Lisa Kleypas, It Happened One Autumn “It is the possibility that keeps me going, and though you may call me a dreamer or a fool or any other thing, I believe that anything is possible.” ― Nicholas Sparks “Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love you will find that you are left holding only yourself.” ― Leo Buscaglia “Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.” ― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet “And I can fight only for something that I love, love only what I respect, and respect only what I at least know.” ― Adolf Hitler “Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.” ― John Lennon “I go to sleep alone, and wake up alone. I take walks. I work until I’m tired. I watch the wind play with the trash that’s been under the snow all winter. Everything seems simple until you think about it. Why is love intensified by abscence?” ― Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife “You’re a hero and a gentleman, you’re kind and honest, but more than that, you’re the first man I ever truly loved. And no matter what the future brings, you always will be, and I know that my life is better for it.” ― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John “Blood of my Blood,” he whispered, “and bone of my bone. You carry me within ye, Claire, and ye canna leave me now, no matter what happens, You are mine, always, if ye will it or no, if ye want me or nay. Mine, and I wilna let ye go.” ― Diana Gabaldon, Dragonfly in Amber “You made me feel alive again.” ― Julie Kagawa, The Iron King “I don’t care if you say we can’t be together. I don’t care if you think I’m the most evil, unnatural creature walking on earth. You can think whatever you want, go whatever you want. I’m going to just go on loving you, even if it’s hopeless.” ― Richelle Mead, The Indigo Spell “The minute I stopped trying to find the right girl, and started trying to become the right guy…the girl came.” ― Jonathan Antin “That’s why I loved being with you. We could do the simplest things, like toss starfish into the ocean and share a burger and talk and even then I knew that I was fortunate. Because you were the first guy who wasn’t constantly trying to impress me. You accepted who you were, but more than that, you accepted me for me. And nothing else mattered– not my family or your family or anyone else in the world. It was just us.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me “It is a defect of God’s humor that he directs our hearts everywhere but to those who have a right to them.” ― Tom Stoppard, Arcadia “I have learned that you can go anywhere you want to go and do anything you want to do and buy all the things that you want to buy and meet all the people that you want to meet and learn all the things that you desire to learn and if you do all these things but are not madly in love: you have still not begun to live.” ― C. JoyBell C. “Being with her I feel a pain, like a frozen knife stuck in my chest. An awful pain, but the funny thing is I’m thankful for it. It’s like that frozen pain and my very existence are one. The pain is an anchor, mooring me here.” ― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore “Anne laughed. “I don’t want sunbursts or marble halls, I just want you.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island “She hardly ever thought of him. He had worn a place for himself in some corner of her heart, as a sea shell, always boring against the rock, might do. The making of the place had been her pain. But now the shell was safely in the rock. It was lodged, and ground no longer.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King “Don’t worry about hurting me, if that’s what you’re afraid of. I want to get hurt. At least I´ll feel something for a change.” ― Katie Kacvinsky, Awaken “He was not my boyfriend. On the other hand, he wasn’t just a friend either. Instead, our relationship was elastic, stretching between those two extremes depending on who else was around, how much either of us had to drink, and other varying factors. This was exactly what I wanted, as commitments had never really been my thing. And it wasn’t like it was hard, either. The only trick was never giving more than you were willing to lose.” ― Sarah Dessen, Lock and Key “It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.” ― Kahlil Gibran
