  • I looked him in the eye. "I will always love you."

  • Then I plunged the stake into his chest.

  • It wasn’t as precise a blow as I would have liked, not with the skilled way he was dodging. I struggled to get the stake in deep enough to his heart, unsure if I could do it from this angle. Then, his struggles stopped. His eyes stared at me, stunned, and his lips parted, almost into a smile, albeit a grisly and pained one.

  • "That’s what I was supposed to say. . .” he gasped out.

  • The angel shook her head slowly and said. "Six pairs of hands.... no way." 

  • It's not the hands that are causing me problems," God remarked, "it's the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have." 

  • That's on the standard model?" asked the angel. God nodded. 

  • One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks, 'What are you kids doing in there?' when she already knows. Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn't but what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs up and say. 'I understand and I love you' without so much as uttering a word." 

  • God," said the angel touching his sleeve gently, "Get some rest tomorrow...." 

  • I can't," said God, "I'm so close to creating something so close to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick...can feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger...and can get a nine year old to stand under a shower." 

  • The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. "It's too soft," she sighed. 

  • But tough!" said God excitedly. "You can imagine what this mother can do or endure." 

  • Can it think?" 

  • Not only can it think, but it can reason and compromise," said the Creator. 

  • Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek. 

  • There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told You that You were trying to put too much into this model." 

  • It's not a leak," said the Lord, "It's a tear." 

  • What's it for?" 

  • It's for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness, and pride." 

  • You are a genius, " said the angel. 

  • Somberly, God said, "I didn't put it there.”

  • When grief sits with you, its tropical heat
  • thickening the air, heavy as water
  • more fit for gills than lungs;

  • between your palms, a plain face,
  • no charming smile, no violet eyes,
  • and you say, yes, I will take you
  • I will love you, again.”

  • ===============================
  • “When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch.

  • 3. The moment you stop comparing yourself to others because it undermines your worth, education and your parent’s wisdom.

  • 4. The moment you live your dreams, not because of what it will prove or get you, but because that is all you want to do. People’s opinions don’t matter. 

  • 5. The moment you realize that no one is your enemy, except yourself.

  • 6. The moment you realize that you can have everything you want in life. However, it takes timing, the right heart, the right actions, the right passion and a willingness to risk it all. If it is not yours, it is because you really didn’t want it, need it or God prevented it.

  • “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.”

Remember men are never to busy to get what they want.”

A cheater, I imagine. Someone who thqought liar was too harsh. Someone who thought devastator was too emotional. The same person who thought, oopsq, he’d gotten caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Fuck you. This isn’t about slipping yourself an extra twenty dollars of Monopoly money. These are our lives. You went and broke our lives. You are so much worse than a cheater. You killed something. And you killed it when its back was turned.”

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 qtoward 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.”

I want to be that kind of friend. The one who will memorize the things you say as well as the shape of your lips when you say them. I want to know every curve, every freckle, every shiver of your body. 

  • I want to know where to touch you, I want to know how to touch you. I want to know convince you to design a smile just for me. Yes, I do want to be your friend. I want to be your best friend in the entire world.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Love is not the absence of logic
  • but logic examined and recalculated
  • heated and curved to fit

  • ==============================
  • “Just because you're beautiful qand perfect, it's made you conceited.” 
  • ==============================
  • “NO. No no no. I don't want to screw you. I just love you. When did who you want to screw become the whole game? Since when is the person you want to screw the only person you get to love? It's so stupid, Tiny! I mean, Jesus, who even gives a fuck about sex?! People act like it's the most important thing humans do, but come on. Howq can our sentient fucking lives revolve around something slugs can do. I mean, who you want to screw and whether you screw them? Those are important questions, I guess. But they're not that important. You know what's important? Who would you die for? Who do you wake up at five forty-five in the morning for even though you don't even know why he needs you? Whose drunken nose would you pick?!” 
  • ==============================
  • “The heart is the toughest part of the body. 
  • Tenderness is in the hands.”

  • This is what we call love. Wheqn you are loved, you can do anything in creation. When you are loved, there's no need at all to understand what's happening, because everything happens within you.” 
  • ==============================
  • “She was my dream. She made me who I am, and holding her in my arms was more natural to me than my own heartbeat. I think about her all the time. Even now, when I'm sitting here, I think about her. There could never have been another.” 
  • ==============================
  • “In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also loqve him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them.... I destroy them.” 
  • ==============q================
  • “I know that's what people say-- you'll get over it. I'd say it, too. But I know it's not true. Oh, youll be happy again, never feqar. But you won't forget. Every time you fall in love it will be because something in the man reminds you of him.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Yet each man kills the thing he loves
  • By each let this be heard
  • Some do it with a bitter look
  • Some with a flattering word
  • The coward does it with a kiss
  • The brave man with a sword” 
  • ==============================
  • “Love has nothing to do with whqat you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give - which is everything” 
  • ==============================
  • “Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love qeach other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.”

  • “If you're a bird... I'm a bird...”

  • “Romance is thinking aboutq your significant other, when you are supposed to be thinking about something else.” 
  • ==============================
  • “I, um, I have this problem. I broke up with my boyfriend, you see. And I'm pretty upset about it, so I wanted to talk to my best friend. [...] The thing is, they're both you.” 
  • ==============================
  • “You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a gQrave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.”

  • “I was blind and heart broken and didn't want to do anything and Gus burst into my room and shouted, "I have wonderful news!" And I was like, "I don't really want to hear wonderful news right now," and Gus said, "This is wonderful news you want to hear," and I asked him, "Fine, what is it?" and he said, "You are going to live a good and long life filled with great and terrible moments that you cannot even imagine yet!” 
  • ==============================
  • “Someday you'll find someone special aQgain. People who've been in love once usually do. It's in their nature.” 
  • ==============================
  • “I told you. You don't love someone because of their looks or their clothes or their car. You love them because they sing a song only Qyour heart can understand.” 
  • ==============================
  • “People like to say love is unconditional, but it's not, and even if it was unconditional, it's still never free. There's always an expectation attached. They always want something in return. Like they want you to be happy or whatever and that makes you automatically responsible for their happiness because they Qwon't be happy unless you are ... I just don't want that responsibility.” 
  • ==============================
  • “It was many and many a year ago,
  • In a kingdom by the sea,
  • That a maiden there lived whom you may know
  • By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
  • And this maiden she lived with no other thought
  • Than to love and be loved by me.

  • I was a child and she was a child,
  • In this kingdom by the sea;
  • But we loved with a love that was more than love-
  • I and my Annabel Lee;
  • With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
  • Coveted her and me.

  • And this was the reason that, long ago,
  • In this kingdom by the sea,
  • A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
  • My beautiful Annabel Lee;
  • So that her highborn kinsman came
  • And bore her away from me,
  • To shut her up in a sepulchre
  • In this kingdom bQy the sea.

  • The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
  • Went envying her and me-
  • Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
  • In this kingdom by the sea)
  • That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
  • Chilling and killinqg my Annabel Lee.

  • But our love it was stronger by far than the love
  • Of those who were older than we-
  • Of many far wiser than we-
  • And neither the angels in heaven above,
  • Nor the demons down under the sea,
  • Can ever dissever my sQoul from the soul
  • Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

  • For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
  • Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
  • And the stars never rQise but I feel the bright eyes
  • Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
  • And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
  • Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
  • In the sepulchre there by the sea,
  • In her tomb by the sounding sea.”

  • “My name is Ashallyn'darkmyr Tallyn, third son of the Unseelie Court...Let it be known--from this day forth, I vow to protect Meghan Chase, daughter of the Summer King, with my sword, my honor, and my life. Her desires are mQine. Her wishes are mine. Should even the world stand against her, my blade will be at her side. And should it fail to protect her, let my own existence be forfeit. This I swear, on my honor, my True NamQe, and my life. From this day on..." His voice went even softer, but I still heard it as though he whispered it into my ear. "I am yours.”

  • “By the time you swear you're his,
  • Shivering and sighing.
  • And he vowQs his passion is,
  • Infinite, undying.
  • Lady make note of this --
  • One of you is lying.” 
  • ==============================
  • “You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Man can never know the loneliness a woman knows. Man lies in the woman's womb only to gather strength, he nourishes himself from this fusion, and then he rises and goes into the world, into his work, into battle, into art. He is not lonely. He is busy. The memory of the swim in amniotic fluid gives him energy, completion. Woman may be busy too, but she feels empty. Sensuality for her is not only a wave of pleasure in which she is bathed, and a charge of electric joy at contact with another. When man lies in her womb, shQe is fulfilled, each act of love a taking of man within her, an act of birth and rebirth, of child rearing and man bearing. Man lies in her womb and is reborn each time anew with a desire to act, to be. But for woman, the climax is not in the birth, but in the moment man rests inside of her.” 
  • ==============================
  • “and he suddenly kQnew that if she killed herself, he would die. Maybe not immediately, maybe not with the same blinding rush of pain, but it would happen. You couldn't live for very long without a heart.”

  • ==============================
  • “Afterward, I had the last laugh. I made an air bubble at the bottom of the lake. Our friends kept waiting for us to come up, but hey-when you are the son of Poseidon, you don't have to hurry. And it was pretty much the best underwater kiss of all time.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Why are old lovers able to become friends? Two reasons. They never truly loved each other, or they love each other still.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.” 
  • ==============================
  • “It's hard being left behind. (...) It's hard to be the one who stays.” 
  • ==============================
  • “I know enough to knoQw that no woman should ever marry a man who hated his mother.” 
  • ==============================
  • “I almost wish we wereQ butterflies and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.” 
  • ==============================
  • “When love beckons Qto you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crownQs you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth......

  • But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

  • Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself."

  • But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.” 
  • ==============================
  • “And what would humans be without love?"
  • RARE, said Death.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It mQakes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Love, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Let me not to the marriage of true minds 
  • Admit impediments. 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 temQpests and is never shaken; 
  • It is the star to every wand'ring barque, 
  • Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. 
  • Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks 
  • Within his bending sickle's compass come; 
  • Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, 
  • But bears it out even to the edge of doom. 
  • If this be error and upon me proved, 
  • I never writ, nor no man ever loved.” 
  • ==============================
  • “I've been in love before, it's like a narcotic. At first it brings the euphoria of complete surrender. The next day you want more. You're not addicted yet, but you like the sensation, and you think you can still control things.You think about the person you love for two minutes then forget them for three hours. But then you get used to that person, and you begin to be completely dependent on them. Now you think about him for three hours and forget him for two minutes. If he's not there, you feel like an addict who can't get a fix. And just as addicts steal and humiliate themselves to get what they need, you're willing to do anything for love."- By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept” 
  • ==============================
  • “I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same mind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear.” 
  • ==============================
  • “She wanted something else, something different, something more. Passion and romance, perhaps, or maybe quiet conversations in candlelit rooms, or perhaps something as simple as not being second.” 
  • ==============================
  • “I think I fell in love with her, a little bit. Isn't that dumb? But it was like I knew her. Like she was my oldest, dearest friend. The kind of person you can tell anything to, no matter how bad, and they'll still love you, because they know you. I wanted to go with her. I wanted her to notice me. And then she stopped walking. Under the moon, she stopped. And looked at us. She looked at me. Maybe she was trying to tell me soQmething; I don't know. She probably didn't even know I was there. But I'll always love her. All my life.” 
  • ==============================
  • “In desperatQe love, we always invent the characters of our partners, demanding they be what we need of them, and then feeling devastated when they refuse to perform the role we created in the first place.” 
  • ==============================

  • I want you to know
  • one thing.

  • You know how this is:
  • if I look
  • at the crystal Qmoon, at the red branch
  • of the slow autumn at my window,
  • if I touch
  • near the fire
  • the impalpable ash
  • or the wrinkled body of the log,
  • everything carries me to you,
  • as if everythiQng that exists,
  • aromas, light, metals,
  • were little boats
  • that sail
  • toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

  • Well, now,
  • if little by little you stop loving me
  • I shall stop loving you little by little.

  • If suddenly
  • you forget me
  • do not look for me,
  • for I shall already have forgotten you.

  • If you think it long and mad,
  • the wind of banners
  • that passes through my life,
  • and you decide
  • to leave me at the shore
  • of the heart where I have roots,
  • remember
  • that on that day,
  • at that hour,
  • I shall lift my aQrms
  • and my roots will set off
  • to seek another land.

  • But
  • if each day,
  • each hour,
  • you feel that you are destined for me
  • with implacable sweetness,
  • if each day a flower
  • climbs up to yoQur lips to seek me,
  • ah my love, ah my own,
  • in me all that fire is repeated,
  • in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
  • my love feeds on your love, beloved,
  • and as long as you live it will be in your arms
  • without leaving mine.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow, 
  • That I shall say good night till it be morrow.” 
  • ==============================
  • “I'm lonely. Why do you think I had to learn to act so independent? I also get mad too quickly, and I hog the covers, and my second toQe is longer than my big one. My hair has it's own zip code. Plus, I get certifiably crazy when I've got PMS. You don't love someone because they're perfect. You love them in spite of the fact that they're not.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Making love with a woman and sleeping with a woman are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love doesQ not make itself felt in the desire for copulation (a desire that extends to an infinite number of women) but in the desire for shared sleep (a desire limited to one woman).” 
  • ==============================
  • “Let yourself be drawn byQ the stronger pull of that which you truly love.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Moments, when lost, can't be found again. They're just gone.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don't believe it. Seek out the Qmemories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it's good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.” 
  • ==============================
  • “It's bullshit to think of friendship and romance as being different. They're not. They're just variations of the same love. Variations of the same desire to be close.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Love is a better master than duty.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Mama, Mama, help me get home
  • I'm out in the woods, I am out on my own.
  • I found me a werewolf, a nasty old mutt
  • It showed me its teeth and went straight for my gut.

  • Mama, Mama, help me get home
  • I'm out in the woods, I am Qout on my own.
  • I was stopped by a vampire, a rotting old wreck
  • It showed me its teeth and went straight for my neck.

  • Mama, Mama, put me to bed
  • I won't make it home, QI'm already half-dead.
  • I met an Invalid, and fell for his art
  • He showed me his smile, and went straight for my heart.

  • ==============================
  • “The soul is healed by being with children.” 
  • ==============================
  • “If a thing loves, it is infinite.” 
  • ==============================

  • Don't waste your love on somebody, who doesn't value it.” 
  • ==============================
  • “That's what real love amQounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretence. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, Qthey hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession.” 
  • ==============================

  • “here she is, all mine, trying her best to give me all she can. How could I ever hurt her? But I didn’t understand then. That I could hurt somebody so badly she would never recover. That a person can, just by living, damage another human being beyond repair.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Love, it never dies. It never Qgoes away, it never fades, so long as you hang on to it. Love can make you immortal” 
  • ==============================
  • “No woman wants to be in submission to a man who isn't in submission to God!” 
  • ==============================
  • “i like my body when it is with your
  • body. It is so quite neQw a thing.
  • Muscles better and nerves more.
  • i like your body. i like what it does,
  • i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
  • of your body and its bones, and the trembling
  • -firm-smooth ness and which i will
  • again and again and again
  • kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
  • i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
  • of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
  • over parting flesh ... And eyes big love-crumbs,

  • and possibly i like the thrill

  • of under me you so quite new.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as loQng as I am living. You said I killed you--haunt me then. The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe--I know that ghosts have wandered the earth. Be with me always--take any form--drive me mad. Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!” 
  • ==============================
  • “Usually adult males who are unable to make emotional connections with the women they choose to be intimate with are frozen in Qtime, unable to allow themselves to love for fear that the loved one will abandon them. If the first woman they passionately loved, the mother, was not true to her bond of love, then how can they trust that their partner will be true to love. Often in their adult relationships these men act out again and again to test their partner's love. While the rejected adolescent boy imagines that he can no longer receive his mother's love because he is not worthy, as a grown man he may act out in ways that are unworthy and yet demand of the woman in his life that she offer him unconditional love. This testing doesQ not heal the wound of the past, it merely reenacts it, for ultimately the woman will become weary of being tested and end the relationship, thus reenacting the abandonment. This drama confirms for many men that they cannot put their trust in love. They decide that it is better to put their faith in being powerful, in being dominant.” 
  • ==============================
  • “The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care abQout other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Love is an abstract noun, something nebulous. And yet love turns out to be the only part of us that is solid, as the world turns Qupside down and the screen goes black.” 
  • ==============================
  • “We are all worthy of one another.” 
  • ==============================
  • “You only need one man to love you. But him to love you free like a wildfire, crazy like the moon, always like tomorrow, sudden like an inhale and overcoming like the tides. Only one man and all of this.” 
  • ==============================
  • “You are like nobody since I love you.” 
  • ==============================
  • “No," Dimitri interrupted gently. He moved his face toward mine, our foreheads nearly touching. "It won't happen to you. You're too strong. You'll fight it, just like you did this
  • time."
  • "I only did because you were here." He wrapped his arms around me, and I buried my face in his chest. "I can't do it by myself," I wQhispered.
  • "You can," he said. There was a tremulous note in his voice. "You're strong—you're so, so strong. It's why I love you.”

  • “Love cannot be reduced to a catalogue of reasons why, and a catalogue of reasons cannot be put together into love.”

  • To do my best to please.
  • And change, with every passing lad
  • To suit his theories.
  • Q
  • But now I know the things I know
  • And do the things I do,
  • And if you do not like me so,
  • To hell, my love, with you.” 
  • ==============================
  • “The fate of your heart is your choice and no one else gets a vote” 
  • ==============================
  • “Is it possible, in the final analysis, for one human being to achieve perfect understanding of another?
  • We can invest enormous time andQ energy in serious efforts to know another person, but in the end, how close can we come to that person's essence? We convince ourselves that we know the other person well, but do we really know anything important about anyone?” 
  • ==============================
  • “What are the chances you’d ever meet someone like that? he wondered. Someone you could love forever, someone who would fQorever love you back? And what did you do when that person was born half a world away? The math seemed impossible.” 
  • ==============================
  • “In love, no question is ever preposterous.” 
  • ==============================
  • “If you can love someone with your whole heart, even one person, then there's salvation in life. Even if you can't get together wiQth that person.” 
  • ==============================
  • “He stared at her, knowing with certainty that he was falling in love. He pulled her close and kissed her beneath a blanket of stars, wondering how on earth he'd been lucky enough to find her.” 
  • ==============================
  • “He dug so deeply into her sentiments that in search of interest he found love, because by trying to make her love him he ended up falling in love with her. Petra Cotes, for her part, loved him more and more as she felt his Qlove increasing, and that was how in the ripeness of autumn she began to believe once more in the youthful superstition that poverty was the servitude of love. Both looked back then on the wild revelry, the gaudy wealth, and the unbridled fornication as an annoyance and they lamented that it had cost them so much of their lives to find the paradise of shared solitude. Madly in love after so many years of sterile complicity, they enjoyed the miracle of living each other as much at the table as in bed, and they grew tQo be so happy that even when they were two worn-out people they kept on blooming like little children and playing together like dogs.” 
  • ==============================

  • ==============================
  • “If someone thinks that peace and love are just a cliche that must have been left behind in the 60s, that's a problem. Peace Aand love are eternal.” 
  • ==============================
  • “If there's a thing I've Alearned in my life it's to not be afraid of the responsibility that comes with caring for other people. What we do for love: those things endure. Even if the people you do them for don't” 
  • ==============================
  • “The great tragedy of life is not that men perish, but that they cease to love.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Anyone wh@A loves in the expectation of being loved in return is wasting their time.” 
  • ==============================
  • “Wherever you will go, 
  • I will let yo@u down, 
  • But this lullaby goes on.”
