“Love means never having to say you're sorry.”
Erich Segal, Love Story

“What the hell makes you so smart?" I asked. "I wouldn't go for coffee with you, " she answered. "Listen -- I wouldn't ask you." "That, "she replied "is what makes you stupid.”
Erich Segal, Love Story

“True love comes quietly, without banners or flashing lights. If you hear bells, get your ears checked.”
Erich Segal
