“And then he gives me a smile that just seems so genuinely sweet with just the right touch of shyness that unexpected warmth rushes through me.” ― Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games “Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.” ― C.S. Lewis “It’s probably not just by chance that I’m alone. It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he’s terribly strong. And if he’s stronger than I, I’m the one who can’t live with him. … I’m neither smart nor stupid, but I don’t think I’m a run-of-the-mill person. I’ve been in business without being a businesswoman, I’ve loved without being a woman made only for love. The two men I’ve loved, I think, will remember me, on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness. I’ve done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts, but with a taste for justice.” ― Coco Chanel “What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov “Never close your lips to those whom you have already opened your heart.” ― Charles Dickens “Sometimes it’s a form of love just to talk to somebody that you have nothing in common with and still be fascinated by their presence.” ― David Byrne “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” ― Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own “Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. …And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything.” ― Stephenie Meyer, New Moon “You can’t measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange.” ― Milan Kundera “Find what you love and let it kill you.” ― Charles Bukowski “I would like to be the air that inhabits you for a moment only. I would like to be that unnoticed and that necessary.” ― Margaret Atwood “The man of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies but also to hate his friends.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche “He does something to me, that boy. Every time. It’s his only detriment. He steps on my heart. He makes me cry.” ― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief “I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.” ― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations “I want To do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.” ― Pablo Neruda, Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair “Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” ― Maya Angelou “Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.” ― Deborah Reber, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul “How do you spell ‘love’?” – Piglet “You don’t spell it…you feel it.” – Pooh” ― A.A. Milne “I’m saying that I’m a moody, insecure, narrow-minded, jealous, borderline homicidal bitch, and I want you to promise me that you’re okay with that, because it’s who I am, and you’re what I need.” ― Jeaniene Frost, Halfway to the Grave “One day you will kiss a man you can’t breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.” ― Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever “Things we lose have a way of coming back to us in the end, if not always in the way we expect.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix “Then I realize what it is. It’s him. Something about him makes me feel like I am about to fall. Or turn to liquid. Or burst into flames.” ― Veronica Roth, Divergent “Promise me you’ll never forget me because if I thought you would, I’d never leave.” ― A.A. Milne “Anyone who falls in love is searching for the missing pieces of themselves. So anyone who’s in love gets sad when they think of their lover. It’s like stepping back inside a room you have fond memories of, one you haven’t seen in a long time.” ― Haruki Murakami “Was it hard?” I ask. Letting go?” Not as hard as holding on to something that wasn’t real.” ― Lisa Schroeder “Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.” ― Chuck Klosterman, Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story “A DEFINITION NOT FOUND IN THE DICTIONARY Not leaving: an act of trust and love, often deciphered by children” ― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief “Tonight I can write the saddest lines I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.” ― Pablo Neruda, Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Despair “Maybe…you’ll fall in love with me all over again.” “Hell,” I said, “I love you enough now. What do you want to do? Ruin me?” “Yes. I want to ruin you.” “Good,” I said. “That’s what I want too.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms “You couldn’t relive your life, skipping the awful parts, without losing what made it worthwhile. You had to accept it as a whole–like the world, or the person you loved.” ― Stewart O’Nan, The Odds: A Love Story
