    Toni Morrison
    “You think because he doesn't love you that you are worthless. You think that because he doesn't want you anymore that he is right -- that his judgement and opinion of you are correct. If he throws you out, then you are garbage. You think he belongs to you because you want to belong to him. Don't. It's a bad word, 'belong.' Especially when you put it with somebody you love. Love shouldn't be like that. Did you ever see the way the clouds love a mountain? They circle all around it; sometimes you can't even see the mountain for the clouds. But you know what? You go up top and what do you see? His head. The clouds never cover the head. His head pokes through, beacuse the clouds let him; they don't wrap him up. They let him keep his head up high, free, with nothing to hide him or bind him. You can't own a human being. You can't lose what you don't own. Suppose you did own him. Could you really love somebody who was absolutely nobody without you? You really want somebody like that? Somebody who falls apart when you walk out the door? You don't, do you? And neither does he. You're turning over your whole life to him. Your whole life, girl. And if it means so little to you that you can just give it away, hand it to him, then why should it mean any more to him? He can't value you more than you value yourself.”
    Toni Morrison

    “A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other...Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever”
    Dave Matthews Band


  • #3
    Stephen Chbosky
    “It's just that I don't want to be somebody's crush. If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don't want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it too.”
    Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower


  • #4
    Abby McDonald
    “I wouldn't settle for the easy path; I would be someone extraordinary, no matter how hard it made things right now. But now, looking back, I wonder if we weren't just as bad as the bitches and cliques we made fun of, thinking we were different, above them all.”
    Abby McDonald, Getting Over Garrett Delaney


  • #5
    Ann Brashares
    “You couldn't erase the past. You couldn't even change it. But sometimes life offered you the opportunity to put it right.”
    Ann Brashares, Girls In Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood


  • #6
    J.R. Ward
    “You never knew the last time you were seeing someone. You didn't know when the last argument happened, or the last time you had sex, or the last time you looked into their eyes and thanked God they were in your life.
    After they were gone?
    That was all you thought about.
    Day and night.”
    J.R. Ward, Lover Mine


  • #7
    Abby McDonald
    “I can't keep doing this to myself, getting my hopes up so high, only to have them come crashing down. I can't keep waiting for him to come to his senses, having my whole emotional state rest on what he decides. What if he never wakes up to how perfect we'd be together? What if I spend another year pining for him - or longer even? In a terrible flash, I see my future stretching out before me: waiting for his calls, rearranging my life around college visits, and decoding texts and instant messages like they could be something real, something true.

    This isn't love; this is pure torment.”
    Abby McDonald, Getting Over Garrett Delaney

    Abby McDonald
    “You’re not in love with me, not really, you just love the way I always made you feel. Like you were the center of my world. Because you were. I would have done anything for you.”
    Abby McDonald, Getting Over Garrett Delaney


  • #9
    Simon Pegg
    “We might not know we are seeking people who best enrich our lives, but somehow on a deep subconscious level we absolutely are. Whether the bond is temporary or permanent, whether it succeeds or fails, fate is simply a configuration of choices that combine with others to shape the relationships that surround us. We cannot choose our family, but we can choose our friends, and we sometimes, before we even meet them.”
    Simon Pegg, Nerd Do Well

    Marilyn Monroe
    “A career is wonderful, but you can't curl up with it on a cold night”
    Marilyn Monroe


  • #11
    C. JoyBell C.
    “I cannot have a man who is afraid of everything, I don't have the time to soothe insecurities and fears, I cannot have a man who is standing on a stone by a creek, watching for the fish to swim by and every time he sees a fish he says "Oh look, this fish scares me, I wonder what this fish means, this fish might mean- this, or this fish might mean- that" for God's sake, they are just fish, and they don't mean anything! Such a sad thing, so many fine, strong men standing on top of little stones, pointing at fish all the time! Such a waste! Such a waste of time! I can only have a man who will leap into the water, not minding the damn fish and whatever other little things that scare him. I need to have someone who is braver than me; if I am a pirate, he has to be the pirate Captain, if I am a pirate Captain he has to be the flying dragon.”
    C. JoyBell C.

    Marilyn Monroe
    “I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
    Marilyn Monroe


  • #13
    Maya Angelou
    “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
    Maya Angelou


  • #14
    Marilyn Monroe
    “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
    Marilyn Monroe


  • #15
    “If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.”
    Gordon A. Eadie


  • #16
    Marilyn Monroe
    “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
    Marilyn Monroe


  • #17
    Douglas Adams

    Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

  • #20
    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “It's easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present and their past, but you'd be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often then not, it's lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundation of their soul.”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, Acheron


  • #21
    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “Sometimes things have to go wrong in order to go right.”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “There are always three sides to every memory…yours, theirs, and the truth, which lies somewhere in between the two”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon


  • #24
    Neil Gaiman
    “Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
    Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones


  • #25
    Pablo Neruda
    “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
    Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
