“She leaned forward and caught at his hand, pressing it between her own. The touch was like white fire through his veins. He could not feel her skin only the cloth of her gloves, and yet it did not matter. You kindled me, heap of ashes that I am, into fire. He had wondered once why love was always phrased in terms of burning. The conflagration in his own veins, now, gave the answer.” ― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Princess “I want love to conquer all. But love can’t conquer anything. It can’t do anything on it’s own. It relies on us to do the conquering on its behalf.” ― David Levithan, Every Day “Isn’t it funny how the memories you cherish before a breakup can become your worst enemies afterwards? The thoughts you loved to think about, the memories you wanted to hold up to the light and view from every angle–it suddenly seems a lot safer to lock them in a box, far from the light of day and throw away the key. It’s not an act of bitterness. It’s an act if self-preservation. It’s not always a bad idea to stay behind the window and look out at life instead, is it?” ― Ally Condie, First Day “Inventory: “Four be the things I am wiser to know: Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe. Four be the things I’d been better without: Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt. Three be the things I shall never attain: Envy, content, and sufficient champagne. Three be the things I shall have till I die: Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.” ― Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker “Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience “Life is funny. Things change, people change, but you will always be you, so stay true to yourself and never sacrifice who you are for anyone.” ― Zayn Malik “Of all our games, love’s play is the only one which threatens to unsettle the soul…” ― Marguerite Yourcenar, Memoirs of Hadrian “You must give everything to make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination.” ― Roman Payne “Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star…” ― E.E. Cummings “Actually that’s my secret — I can’t even talk about you to anybody because I don’t want any more people to know how wonderful you are.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender Is the Night “Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.” ― W.B. Yeats, The Wind Among the Reeds “I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the Heart’s affections and the truth of the Imagination.” ― John Keats “A fit, healthy body—that is the best fashion statement” ― Jess C. Scott “As lovers, the difference between men and women is that women can love all day long, but men only at times.” ― W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence “Well, it’s true that I have been hurt in my life. Quite a bit. But it’s also true that I have loved, and been loved. and that carries a weight of its own. A greater weight, in my opinion. It’s like that pie chart we talked about earlier. in the end, I’ll look back on my life and see that the greatest piece of it was love. The problems, the divorces, the sadness… those will be there too, but just smaller slivers, tiny pieces.” ― Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby “This is what happened in love. One of you cried a lot and then both of you grew sarcastic.” ― Lorrie Moore, Like Life “There are memories that time does not erase… Forever does not make loss forgettable, only bearable.” ― Cassandra Clare, City of Heavenly Fire “Ah,” she cried, “you look so cool.” Their eyes met, and they stared together at each other, alone in space. With an effort she glanced down at the table. You always look so cool,” she repeated. She had told him that she loved him, and Tom Buchanan saw.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby “If you love something so much let it go. If it comes back it was meant to be; if it doesn’t it never was” ― Albert Schweitzer “Then I discovered that being related is no guarantee of love!” ― Stieg Larsson, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo “I can’t set my hopes too high, ‘Cause every hello ends with a goodbye.” ― Demi Lovato “I find the best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead, help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience “you’re an expert at sorry and keeping the lines blurry” ― Taylor Swift “It’s the same with people who say, ‘Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.’ Even people who say this must realize that the exact opposite is true. What doesn’t kill you maims you, cripples you, leaves you weak, makes you whiny and full of yourself at the same time. The more pain, the more pompous you get. Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you incredibly annoying.” ― Rob Sheffield, Love Is a Mix Tape “My parents danced together, her head on his chest. Both had their eyes closed. They seemed so perfectly content. If you can find someone like that, someone who you can hold and close your eyes to the world with, then you’re lucky. Even if it only lasts for a minute or a day. The image of them gently swaying to the music is how I picture love in my mind even after all these years.” ― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind “You don’t take away my choices. You are my choice.” ― Colleen Houck “What about when someone doesn’t need a shoulder? What if they need the arms?” ― Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower “some moments are nice, some are nicer, some are even worth writing about.” ― Charles Bukowski, War All the Time “Wait. You think I’m going to die? That’s why you slept with me?” ― Richelle Mead, Shadow Kiss “But I have to confess, I’m glad you two had at least a few months of happiness together.” I’m not glad,” says Peeta. “I wish we had waited until the whole thing was done officially.” This takes even Caesar aback. “Surely even a brief time is better than no time?” Maybe I’d think that, too, Caesar,” says Peeta bitterly, “If it weren’t for the baby.” ― Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire
