“to love is to destroy, and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed.” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Bones “The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely.” ― Louisa May Alcott “First best is falling in love. Second best is being in love. Least best is falling out of love. But any of it is better than never having been in love.” ― Maya Angelou “To the world you may be one person but to one person you may be the world.” ― Bill Wilson “If you could only love enough, you could be the most powerful person in the world.” ― Emmet Fox “Until this moment, I had not realized that someone could break your heart twice, along the very same fault lines.” ― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper “You’ve changed me forever. And I’ll never forget you.” ― Kiera Cass, The Elite “It does good to no woman to be flattered [by a man] who does not intend to marry her; and it is madness in all women to let a secret love kindle within them, which, if unreturned and unknown, must devour the life that feeds it; and, if discovered and responded to, must lead, ignis-fatuus-like, into miry wilds whence there is no extrication.” ― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre “Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove. O no, it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wand’ring bark, Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.” (Sonnet 116)” ― William Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s Sonnets “You picked a lemon, throw it away lemonade is overrated. Freaks should remain at the circus, not in your apartment. You already have one asshole. You don’t need another. Make a space in your life for the glorious things you deserve. Have faith.” ― Greg Behrendt, He’s Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys “I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul.” ― Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities “I drive around the streets an inch away from weeping, ashamed of my sentimentality and possible love.” ― Charles Bukowski, Love Is a Dog from Hell “I felt like an animal, and animals don’t know sin, do they?” ― Jess C. Scott, Wicked Lovely “In bed that night I invented a special drain that would be underneath every pillow in New York, and would connect to the reservoir. Whenever people cried themselves to sleep, the tears would all go to the same place, and in the morning the weatherman could report if the water level of the Reservoir of Tears had gone up or down, and you could know if New York is in heavy boots.” ― Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close “I love you enough to never make you choose.” ― Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits “This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.” ― Susan Polis Schutz “Would you destroy Something perfect in order to make it beautiful?” ― Gerard Way “I will follow you to the ends of the world.” ― Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns “At the end of the day it’s about how much you can bear, how much you can endure. Being together, we harm nobody; being apart, we extinguish ourselves.” ― Tabitha Suzuma, Forbidden “To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.” ― Augustine of Hippo “I don’t think we get a choice in who we fall for,” Ian whispers. “I think we just do.” ― Jodi Picoult, Keeping Faith “Don’t ever think I fell for you, or fell over you. I didn’t fall in love, I rose in it.” ― Toni Morrison, Jazz “The way you walk, way you talk, way you say my name; it’s beautiful, wonderful, don’t you ever change.” ― Taylor Swift, Taylor Swift “Looking at him now-even if she hadn’t been in love with him, that part of her that was her mother’s daugher, that loved every beautiful thing for its beauty alone, would still have wanted him.” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Glass “Living with him is like being told a perpetual story: his mind is the biggest, most imaginative I have ever met. I could live in its growing countries forever.” ― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath “How many times have you tried to talk to someone about something that matters to you, tried to get them to see it the way you do? And how many of those times have ended with you feeling bitter, resenting them for making you feel like your pain doesn’t have any substance after all? Like when you’ve split up with someone, and you try to communicate the way you feel, because you need to say the words, need to feel that somebody understands just how pissed off and frightened you feel. The problem is, they never do. “Plenty more fish in the sea,” they’ll say, or “You’re better off without them,” or “Do you want some of these potato chips?” They never really understand, because they haven’t been there, every day, every hour. They don’t know the way things have been, the way that it’s made you, the way it has structured your world. They’ll never realise that someone who makes you feel bad may be the person you need most in the world. They don’t understand the history, the background, don’t know the pillars of memory that hold you up. Ultimately, they don’t know you well enough, and they never can. Everyone’s alone in their world, because everybody’s life is different. You can send people letters, and show them photos, but they can never come to visit where you live. Unless you love them. And then they can burn it down.” ― Michael Marshall Smith, Only Forward “He loved her, of course, but better than that, he chose her, day after day. Choice: that was the thing.” ― Sherman Alexie, The Toughest Indian in the World “One should always be in love. That’s the reason one should never marry.” ― Oscar Wilde “Missing someone, they say, is self-centered. I self-center you more than ever.” ― Saša Stanišić, How the Soldier Repairs the Gramophone “I love you” I say. “I love you, too” he says. “I’ll see you soon.” ― Veronica Roth, Allegiant
