David Sedaris
“Hugh and I have been together for so long that in order to arouse extraordinary passion, we need to engage in physical combat. Once, he hit me on the back of the head with a broken wineglass, and I fell to the floor pretending to be unconscious. That was romantic, or would have been had he rushed to my side rather than stepping over my body to fetch the dustpan.”
David Sedaris, Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

“Sometimes you know you've got a chance with a girl because she wants to fight with you. If the world wasn't so messed up, it wouldn't be like that. If the world was normal, a girl being nice to you would be a good sign, but in the real world, it isn't.”
Nick Hornby

George Eliot
“Poor fellow! I think he is in love with you.'

I am not aware of it. And to me it is one of the most odious things in a girl's life, that there must always be some supposition of falling in love coming between her and any man who is kind to her... I have no ground for the nonsensical vanity of fancying everybody who comes near me is in love with me.”
George Eliot

Oscar Wilde
“Deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.”
Oscar Wilde

Coco J. Ginger

Ally Carter
“So far Kat has been through all the Wa's she could think of, but Hale hadn't admitted to being Walter or Ward or Washington. He'd firmly denied both Warren and Waverly. Watson had prompted him to do a very bad Sherlock Holmes impersonation throughout a good portion of a train ride to Edinburgh, Scotland. And Wayne seemed so wrong she hadn't even tried.

Hale was Hale. And not knowing what the W's stood for had become a constant reminder to Kat that, in life, there are some things that can be given but never stolen.

Of course, that didn't stop her from trying.”
Ally Carter, Heist Society

Jocelyn Soriano
“Yes, I understand why things had to happen this way. I understand his reason for causing me pain. But mere understanding does not chase away the hurt. It does not call upon the sun when dark clouds have loomed over me. Let the rain come then if it must come! And let it wash away the dust that hurt my eyes!”
Jocelyn Soriano, Mend My Broken Heart

George R.R. Martin
“I crossed a thousand leagues to come to you, and lost the best part of me along the way. Don't tell me to leave.”
George R.R. Martin, A Storm of Swords

Nicholas Sparks
“As a girl, she had come to believe in the ideal man -- the prince or knight of her childhood stories. In the real world, however, men like that simply didn't exist.”
Nicholas Sparks, Message in a Bottle

E.L. James
“Of course. Silly me. Such a sad, exciting score, which no doubt you can play? So many accomplishments, Mr. Grey.”
“And the greatest one is you, Miss Steele.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey

Cristina Marrero
“You had to be willing to fight in order for a love story to last a life time.”
Cristina Marrero, The Unsung Love Story

Veronica Rossi
“In the afternoon, they stopped to eat on a rocky outcrop. Perry brushed a kiss on her cheek while she was chewing, and she learned that it was the loveliest thing to be kissed for no reason, even while chewing food. It brightened the woods, and the never sky, and everything.”
Veronica Rossi, Under the Never Sky

Natalie Clifford Barney
“ When you're in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.”
Natalie Clifford Barney

P.C. Cast
“A lot of men wouldn't like being called a romantic. It's not macho enough.'
Quite often men are fools.”
P.C. Cast, Goddess of Light

Kim Harrison
“Plan B?' Ivy said. 'What is plan B?'
Jenks reddened. 'Grab the fish and run like hell,' he muttered, and I almost giggled.”
Kim Harrison, A Fistful of Charms

Pablo Neruda
“I have named you queen.
There are taller than you, taller.
There are purer than you, purer.
There are lovelier than you, lovelier.
But you are the queen.

When you go through the streets
No one recognizes you.
No one sees your crystal crown, no one looks
At the carpet of red gold
That you tread as you pass,
The nonexistent carpet.

And when you appear
All the rivers sound
In my body, bells
Shake the sky,
And a hymn fills the world.

Only you and I,
Only you and I, my love,
Listen to it.”
Pablo Neruda, Love Poems

Sophie Kinsella
“A real relationship is two-way.”
Sophie Kinsella, Can You Keep a Secret?

“She'd secretly had a crush on him since they were twelve years old. Last summer, she'd fallen for him hard.”
Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena

Richelle Mead
“Vampires. Honestly, they're like children sometimes. ”
Richelle Mead, Succubus Blues

Maya Banks
“Women were supposed to be the enigmas, but men? Moody, brooding bastards, the lot of them. A woman with PMS had nothing on a man. Where women might get hormonal once a month, men suffered their own brand of PMS on a daily basis.
- Faith”
Maya Banks, Sweet Surrender

Rowena Cherry
“Having sex multiple times on the first sleepover does not count as more than one “date”…”
Rowena Cherry, Knight's Fork

Jeaniene Frost, Halfway to the Grave

Jess C. Scott
“I suppose it’s not a social norm, and not a manly thing to do — to feel, discuss feelings. So that’s what I’m giving the finger to. Social norms and stuff…what good are social norms, really? I think all they do is project a limited and harmful image of people. It thus impedes a broader social acceptance of what someone, or a group of people, might actually be like.”
Jess C. Scott, New Order

Janet Evanovich
“He [Ranger] stopped in front of my parents' house, and we both looked to the door. My mother and my grandmother were standing there, watching us.
"I'm not sure I feel comfortable about the way your grandma looks at me," Ranger said.
[Stephanie] "She wants to see you naked."
"I wish you hadn't told me that, babe."
"Everyone I know wants to see you naked."
"And you?"
"Never crossed my mind." I held my breath when I said it, and I hoped God wouldn't stike me down dead for lying.”
Janet Evanovich, Hard Eight
