“You don't love a girl because of beauty. You love her because she sings a song only you can understand.”
L.J. Smith, Secret Vampire

“People die . . . so love them every day.
Beauty fades . . . so look before it's gone.
Love changes . . . but not the love you give.
And if you love, you'll never be alone.”
L.J. Smith, Witchlight

“I told you. You don't love someone because of their looks or their clothes or their car. You love them because they sing a song only your heart can understand.”
