“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.”
“It takes courage to love, but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love generously know. We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death.”
“Who, being loved, is poor?”
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach”
“The more one judges, the less one loves.”
“The love of learning, the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books”
“Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.”
“Man may have discovered fire, but women discovered how to play with it.”
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”
“It's not the face, but the expressions on it. It's not the voice, but what you say. It's not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it. You are beautiful.”

"It's a girl," Jace said,recovering his composure. "Surely you've seen girls before, Alec. Your sister Isabelle is one.”
“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”
“Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused.”
“One day you will kiss a man you can't breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.”
“In time, the hurt began to fade and it was easier to just let it go. At least I thought it was. But in every boy I met in the next few years, I found myself looking for you, and when the feelings got too strong, I'd write you another letter. But I never sent them for fear of what I might find. By then, you'd gone on with your life and I didn't want to think about you loving someone else. I wanted to remember us like we were that summer. I didn't ever want to lose that.”
“Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.”
“If conversation was the lyrics, laughter was the music, making time spent together a melody that could be replayed over and over without getting stale.”
“Promise me you'll never forget me because if I thought you would, I'd never leave.”
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”
“Sometimes love means letting go when you want to hold on tighter.”
