“He loved her for almost everything she was & she decided that was enough to let him stay for a very long time.”
Brian Andreas

“Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth… This is the real message of love.”
Thich Nhat Hanh,

“Unrequited love is the infinite curse of a lonely heart.”

“I have no right to say or do anything that diminishes a man in his own eyes. What matters is not what I think of him but what he thinks of himself. Hurting a man in his dignity is a crime.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“That’s why I loved being with you. We could do the simplest things, like toss starfish into the ocean and share a burger and talk and even then I knew that I was fortunate. Because you were the first guy who wasn’t constantly trying to impress me. You accepted who you were, but more than that, you accepted me for me. And nothing else mattered– not my family or your family or anyone else in the world. It was just us.”
Nicholas Sparks,

“You like every one; that is to say, you are indifferent to every one.”
Oscar Wilde,

Tim McGraw

“Rejection is an opportunity for your selection.”
Bernard Branson

“He wasn’t the type for displays of affection, either verbal or not. He was disgusted by couples that made out in the hallways between classes, and got annoyed at even the slightest sappy moments in movies. But I knew he cared about me: he just conveyed it more subtly, as concise with expressing this emotion as he was with everything else. It was in the way he’d put his hand on the small of my back, for instance, or how he’d smile at me when I said something that surprised him. Once I might have wanted more, but I’d come around to his way of thinking in the time we’d been together. And we were together, all the time. So he didn’t have to prove how he felt about me. Like so much else, I should just know.”
Sarah Dessen,

“Annabeth,” he said hesitantly, “in New Rome, demigods can live their whole lives in peace.”
Rick Riordan,

“You fit into me
Margaret Atwood

“Hope for love, pray for love, wish for love, dream for love…but don’t put your life on hold waiting for love.”
Mandy Hale,

“I won’t telephone him. I’ll never telephone him again as long as I live. He’ll rot in hell, before I’ll call him up. You don’t have to give me strength, God; I have it myself. If he wanted me, he could get me. He knows where I am. He knows I’m waiting here. He’s so sure of me, so sure. I wonder why they hate you, as soon as they are sure of you.”
Dorothy Parker,

“When God knows you’re ready for the responsibility of commitment, He’ll reveal the right person under the right circumstances.”
Joshua Harris,

“We ruined each other by being together. We destroyed each other’s dreams.”
Kate Chisman,

“You Can’t Lose Something You Never Had”
Kate G. Hudson

“Don’t worry about hurting me, if that’s what you’re afraid of. I want to get hurt. At least I´ll feel something for a change.”
Katie Kacvinsky,

“Perfectly Imperfect
Steve Maraboli,

“If you’re trapped in the dream of the Other, you’re fucked.”
