Ernest Hemingway
“Maybe...you'll fall in love with me all over again."

Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Gayle Forman
“If you stay, I'll do whatever you want. I'll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I'll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it'd be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I'd do it. I can lose you like that if I don't lose you today. I'll let you go. If you stay.”
Gayle Forman, If I Stay

Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

That all the world will be in love with night...”
William Shakespeare

Cath Crowley
“Every time he looked at me I felt like I'd touched my tongue to the tip of a battery. In art class I'd watch him lean back and listen and I was nothing but zing and tingle. After a while, the tingle turned to electricity, and when he asked me out my whole body amped to a level where technically I should have been dead. I had nothing in common with a sheddy like him, but a girl doesn't think straight when she's that close to electrocution.”
Cath Crowley, Graffiti Moon

John Green
“I thought you hung the moon.”
John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

Elizabeth Gilbert
“My love affair with (him) had a wonderful element of romance to it, which I will always cherish. But it was not an infatuation, and here’s how I can tell: because I did not demand that he become my Great Emancipator or my Source of All Life, nor did I immediately vanish into that man’s chest cavity like a twisted, unrecognizable, parasitical homonculus. During our long period of courtship, I remained intact within my own personality, and I allowed myself to meet (him) for who he was.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage

Elizabeth Gilbert
“Infatuation is not quite the same thing as love; it's more like love's shady second cousin who's always borrowing money and can't hold down a job.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage

Chuck Klosterman
“…I have never understood the concept of infatuation. It has always been my understanding that being ‘infatuated’ with someone means you think you are in love, but you’re actually not; infatuation is (supposedly) just a foolish, fleeting feeling. But if being ‘in love’ is an abstract notion, and it’s not tangible, and there is no way to physically prove it to anyone else… well, how is being in love any different than having an infatuation? They’re both human constructions. If you think you’re in love with someone and you feel like you’re in love with someone, then you obviously are; thinking and feeling is the sum total of what love is. Why do we feel an obligation to certify emotions with some kind of retrospective, self-imposed authenticity?”
Chuck Klosterman, Killing Yourself to Live: 85% of a True Story

Sophie Jordan
“He stares at me so darkly, so hungily that I can only nod. Agree. Of course, I feel it. "I do", I admit.”
Sophie Jordan, Firelight

Ann Brashares
“She spilled rice on my knee, and she smiled. I wanted her to spill a thousand things on me, lava, acid, bricks, anything, and smile each time”
Ann Brashares, My Name Is Memory

Tamora Pierce
“Curse him for being all tight muscle, with ivory skin and a mouth as soft as rose petals. Curse him for having hair as fair as the sun, and eyes as black as night. Curse him for having the grace of a cat and deft, cool hands.

And now I am having the same argument on paper that I have in my own head on too many nights. I know my choice is sensible, but it isn't my common sense I think with, those times Rosto's stolen a kiss from me.”
Tamora Pierce, Bloodhound

Elizabeth Gilbert
“You have now reached infatuation’s final destination—the complete and merciless
devaluation of self.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

Cole Porter
“I get no kick from champagne. Mere alcohol doesn't thrill me at all. So, tell me why should it be true, that I get a kick out of you?”
Cole Porter, The Complete Lyrics

Sophie Jordan
“I respond, thoughts dropping away, like pebbles plopping one by one in water, sinking down, down into dark oblivion.”
Sophie Jordan, Firelight

Anna Godbersen
“A young woman, newly wed, may find herself in the delightful position of wanting to do nothing without the company of her darling husband. She may indeed discover that she spends all her waking hours with her fellow to the exclusion of every other friend or family member. This is understandable, but wholly unacceptable, to society.”
Anna Godbersen, Envy

Alexander Herzen
“Compassionate love may be strong. It sobs, it burns, then it wipes away its tears – and it does nothing.”
Alexander Herzen
