“It is possible to be in love with you just because of who you are.”
“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.”
“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.”
“There is only one page left to write on. I will fill it with words of only one syllable. I love. I have loved. I will love.”
“A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.”
“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.”
“Love is a better master than duty.”
“There is only one page left to write on. I will fill it with words of only one syllable. I love. I have loved. I will love.”
“Love, n. A temporary insanity curable by marriage.”
“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 toe 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.”
“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.”
“For the two of us, home isn't a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.”
“When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.”
“Was it hard?" I ask.
Letting go?"

Not as hard as holding on to something that wasn't real.”
“Someday you'll find someone special again. People who've been in love once usually do. It's in their nature.”
“I don't want to lose you.' His voice almost a whisper. Seeing his haggard expression, she took his hand and squeezed it, then reluctantly let it go. She could feel the tears again, and she fought them back. 'But you don't want to keep me, either, do you?' To that, he had no response.”
“You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it” is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never loses. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?”
“The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it...”
“When I look in the mirror, I know I’m looking at someone who isn’t sure she deserves to be loved at all.”
“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.”
