“That’s when I finally got it. I finally understood. It wasn’t the thought that counted. It was the actual execution that mattered, the showing up for somebody. The intent behind it wasn’t enough. Not for me. Not anymore. It wasn’t enough to know that deep down, he loved me. You had to actually say it to somebody, show them you cared. And he just didn’t. Not enough.”
Jenny Han, Why Things Burn

“When you loved someone and had to let them go, there will always be that small part of yourself that whispers, “What was it that you wanted and why didn’t you fight for it?”

Paulo Coelho, Excuse Me, My Brains Have Stepped Out

“Statistically speaking, there is a 65 percent chance that the love of your life is having an affair. Be very suspicious.”
Scott Dikkers, EyeLeash: A Blog Novel

“People die, I think, but your relationship with them doesn’t. It continues and is ever-changing.”
Jandy Nelson, Where She Went

“The best relationships in our lives are the best not because they have been the happiest ones, they are that way because they have stayed strong through the most tormentful of storms.”
Pandora Poikilos, Watermelon

“V-Day…if you need this one day in a year to show everyone else you truly care for “your loved one” I think it’s quite stupid. I hate this commercialism. It’s all artificial, and has nothing to do with real love.”
Jess C Scott, Survivor

“There are so many things that demand to be said. Where did you go? Do you ever think about me? You’ve ruined me. Are you okay? But of course, I can’t say any of that.”
Gayle Forman, Bridget Jones’s Diary

“Failed relationships can be described as so much wasted make-up.”
Marian Keyes, The Lover’s Dictionary
