“the pain of that first lost was still raw. You could deal with it, endure it, but never escape it.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, The Lunatic Cafe
“Somehow I think Trophy Wives wear more makeup and less cutlery. But hey, I haven't ever met a Trophy Wife, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they know what I know, that the true way to a man's heart is six inches of metal between his ribs.”
Laurell K. Hamilton
“If it works out, it's the best thing in the world. If it doesn't work out, it's like having your heart torn out and chopped up into little pieces while you watch. It leaves a big hollow space that never really heals.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Narcissus in Chains
“Tell me not, sweet, I am unkind,” he said, “That from the nunnery, Of they chaste breast and quiet mind.”
I looked up at him, and said the next line, “To war and arms I fly.”
“True, a new mistress now I chase,” he said.
“The first foe in the field,” I said, and let him draw me closer.
“And with a stronger faith embrace,” he said.
“A sword, a horse, a shield.” And the last word was whispered against his chest, still looking up into those eyes, searching his face.
“Yet this inconstancy is such, As thou too shalt adore,” he whispered against my hair.
I finished the poem with my face pressed against his chest, listening to the beat of his heart, that truly beat with my blood. “I could not love thee, dear, so much, Loved I not honor more.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Incubus Dreams
“Anything under size five isn't a woman. It's a boy with breasts.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Obsidian Butterfly
“To just let go, and not pick everything to death. To just let go and enjoy what you had. To just let go and not make everybody around you miserable with your own internal dialogue. To just let go and be happy. So simple. So difficult. So terrifying.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Incubus Dreams
“Larry is back in town...The wedding is set for October. Tammy is threatening to have me in the wedding. Some friends they are.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Cerulean Sins
“I cannot do it. I cannot bear it. I cannot go back to what I was here. I cannot stand at her side and watch another take her. I am not that strong or that good.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, A Stroke of Midnight
“I let Richard walk out on me. I think he’d have gone anyway, but I just sat on the floor and watched him go. I didn’t stand in his way. I figured it was his choice, and you cant hold someone if they don’t want to be held. If someone really wants to be free of you, you have to let them go. Well, fuck that, fuck that all to hell. Don’t go, Asher, please, don’t go. I love the way your hair shines in the light. I love that way you smile when you’re not trying to hide or impress anyone. I love your laughter. I love the way your voice can hold sorrow like the taste of rain. I love the way you watch Jean-Claude when he moves through a room, when you don’t think anyone’s watching, because its exactly the way I watch him. I love your eyes. I love your pain. I love you.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Cerulean Sins
“In chains and darkness, wherefore should I stay, And mourn in prison, while I keep the key.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, The Harlequin
“True love means you love the real person, not an ideal that you have in your head and superimpose over them. That's illusion and lies to me.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Affliction
“I watched her fade, but I loved her always. Because it was her love that made me real, Merry. Not faerie, not wild magic, but the magic of love. I thought I was giving up what life I had to save Rose, but the consort had asked if I would give up everything I was, and I did. I became what she needed me to be. When I realized that I would not age with her I wept, because I could not imagine being without her."

He came to his knees and put his hands on my arms, and stared down into my face. "I will love you always. When this red hair is white, I will still love you. When the smooth softness of youth is replaced by the delicate softness of age, I will still want to touch your skin. When your face is full of the lines of every smile you have ever smiled, of every surprise I have seen flash through your eyes, when every tear you have ever cried has left its mark upon your face, I will treasure you all the more, because I was there to see it all. I will share your life with you, Meredith, and I will love you until the last breath leaves your body or mine”
Laurell K. Hamilton, A Lick of Frost
“When in doubt, shut the fuck up.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Skin Trade
“Oh, ma petite, you are growing gargantuan."

I looked at him and it was not a friendly look. "Never tease a woman about her weight, Jean-Claude. At least not an American twentieth-century one."

He Spread his hands wide. "My deepest apologies."

"When you apologize, try not to smile at the same time. It ruins the effect.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Burnt Offerings
“More than life, more than honor, I love thee."

More than any crown or throne or title, I love thee. More than any power in faerie, I love thee.”
Laurell K. Hamilton

'I thought you were friends.'
'What part of sociopath didn't you understand?' he asked.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Affliction
