“Without you in my arms, I feel an emptiness in my soul. I find myself searching the crowds for your face – I know it’s an impossibility, but I cannot help myself.” ― Nicholas Sparks, Message in a Bottle “Holding Eleanor’s hand was like holding a butterfly. Or a heartbeat. Like holding something complete, and completely alive.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park “I sought to hear the voice of God and climbed the topmost steeple, but God declared: “Go down again – I dwell among the people.” ― John Henry Newman “My wish is that you may be loved to the point of madness.” ― André Breton, What is Surrealism?: Selected Writings “We are who we are, be­cause of those we choose to love and be­cause of those who love us.” ― Kate Mosse, The Winter Ghosts “The bond forged between us was not one that could be broken by absence, distance, or time. And no matter how much more special or beautiful or brilliant or perfect than me he might be, he was as irreversibly altered as I was. As I would always belong to him, so would he always be mine.” ― Stephenie Meyer, New Moon “We’re staying together,” he promised. “You’re not getting away from me. Never again.” ― Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena “You think because he doesn’t love you that you are worthless. You think that because he doesn’t want you anymore that he is right — that his judgement and opinion of you are correct. If he throws you out, then you are garbage. You think he belongs to you because you want to belong to him. Don’t. It’s a bad word, ‘belong.’ Especially when you put it with somebody you love. Love shouldn’t be like that. Did you ever see the way the clouds love a mountain? They circle all around it; sometimes you can’t even see the mountain for the clouds. But you know what? You go up top and what do you see? His head. The clouds never cover the head. His head pokes through, beacuse the clouds let him; they don’t wrap him up. They let him keep his head up high, free, with nothing to hide him or bind him. You can’t own a human being. You can’t lose what you don’t own. Suppose you did own him. Could you really love somebody who was absolutely nobody without you? You really want somebody like that? Somebody who falls apart when you walk out the door? You don’t, do you? And neither does he. You’re turning over your whole life to him. Your whole life, girl. And if it means so little to you that you can just give it away, hand it to him, then why should it mean any more to him? He can’t value you more than you value yourself.” ― Toni Morrison “True love is usually the most inconvenient kind.” ― Kiera Cass, The Selection “sometimes you don’t need a goal in life, you don’t need to know the big picture. you just need to know what you’re going to do next!” ― Sophie Kinsella, The Undomestic Goddess “Sometimes when I’m alone, I take the pearl from where it lives in my pocket and try to remember the boy with the bread, the strong arms that warded off nightmares on the train, the kisses in the arena.” ― Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay “I won’t ever leave you, even though you’re always leaving me.” ― Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife “You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince” ― E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey “We are not trapped or locked up in these bones. No, no. We are free to change. And love changes us. And if we can love one another, we can break open the sky.” ― Walter Mosley, Blue Light “Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” ― Anaïs Nin “Ok. You fuck me, then snub me. You love me, you hate me. You show me a sensitive side, then you turn into a total asshole. Is this a pretty accurate description of our relationship.” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club “Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze. ” ― Elinor Glyn “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” ― Mother Teresa “I love you as certain dark things are loved, secretly, between the shadow and the soul.” ― Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss “The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn’t live boldly enough, that they didn’t invest enough heart, didn’t love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.” ― Ted Hughes, Letters of Ted Hughes “I’m about to make a wild, extreme and severe relationship rule: the word busy is a load of crap and is most often used by assholes. The word “busy” is the relationship Weapon of Mass Destruction. It seems like a good excuse, but in fact in every silo you uncover, all you’re going to find is a man who didn’t care enough to call. Remember men are never to busy to get what they want.” ― Greg Behrendt “When I look in the mirror, I know I’m looking at someone who isn’t sure she deserves to be loved at all.” ― Nicholas Sparks, Dear John “If there is no love in the world, we will make a new world, and we will give it walls, and we will furnish it with soft, red interiors, from the inside out, and give it a knocker that resonates like a diamond falling to a jeweller’s felt so that we should never hear it. Love me, because love doesn’t exist, and I have tried everything that does.” ― Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated “About all you can do in life is be who you are. Some people will love you for you. Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won’t like you at all.” ― Rita Mae Brown “Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away… and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast…. be happy about your growth, in which of course you can’t take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don’t torment them with your doubts and don’t frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn’t be able to comprehend. Seek out some simple and true feeling of what you have in common with them, which doesn’t necessarily have to alter when you yourself change again and again; when you see them, love life in a form that is not your own and be indulgent toward those who are growing old, who are afraid of the aloneness that you trust…. and don’t expect any understanding; but believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet “The human heart is a strange vessel. Love and hatred can exist side by side.” ― Scott Westerfeld “For my part, I prefer my heart to be broken. It is so lovely, dawn-kaleidoscopic within the crack.” ― D.H. Lawrence “The music in his laughter had a way of rounding off the missing notes in her soul.” ― Gloria Naylor, Linden Hills “Spending time with you showed me what I’ve been missing in my life.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Choice “The things we love destroy us every time, lad. Remember that.” ― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
