“There are different ways to be confused about how someone's disappointed you. Some lie about the future because they wanted to forget the past. But some will lie about the past because they think it will give you both a future.”
Laura Dave, The Divorce Party

“These things...they are who you are. They brought you here. To this day. You didn't give me a chance to understand that ever the unattractive parts of you, the messy parts, were something I could accept.”
Laura Dave, The Divorce Party

“I couldn't help but wonder if that was what love was -- believing that someone was going to come through, in the end, and that it would still count”
Laura Dave, London Is the Best City in America
