Pittacus Lore

Stuart Dybek, The Coast of Chicago: Stories

Sara Teasdale
“I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.

Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
The cold and sparkling silver of the sea --
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
Before you hear that sound again with me.”
Sara Teasdale

Jamie Ford
“Henry was learning that time apart has a way of creating distance- more than mountains and time zone separating them. Real distance, the kind that makes you ache and stop wondering. Longing so bad that it begins to hurt to care so much.”
Jamie Ford, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

“My dearest -- But what more is there to be said? The things one says are always inadequate: it's the touch of live hands, of lips pressed to lips that count. I want to hold you and say nothing. I want --”

Franco Santoro
“Aloneness and all-oneness is our authentic nature. We are always alone and all-one. We came into this planet alone and all-one. We will leave alone and all-one. And also during our whole staying in this world, no matter how we engage in relationships, we continue to be alone and all-one, though we may forget about it or pretend it is not the case.

True love has nothing to do with the idea that someone is the other half of my soul and that I need him or her in order to be whole and feel complete. Only when we can be alone and all-one with someone there is true love, regardless of whether that someone is still with us or not.

And yet... I miss you...”
Franco Santoro

Salvador Plascencia
“Missing you is worse than Pittsburgh.”
Salvador Plascencia, The People of Paper

“And I think missing you hurts the most when something funny happens. Because in that one moment I find myself laughing, and within the next second I want to tell or text you what happened. And then it hits me again, every single time, that you aren’t there anymore. That I lost that one thing that mattered to me.”
Elisabeth Van den Abeele

David Mitchell
“...it’s not just the person who fills a house, it’s their I’ll be back later!s, their toothbrushes and unused hats and coats, their belongingnesses.”
David Mitchell, Black Swan Green

Kaui Hart Hemmings
“We walk until there aren't more houses, all the way to the part of the beach where the current makes the waves come in then rush back out so that the two waves clash, water casting up like a geyser. We watch that for a while and then Scottie says, "I wish Mom was here." I'm thinking the exact same thought. That's how you know you love someone, I guess, when you can't experience anything without wishing the other person were there to see it, too. Every day I kept track of anecdotes, occurrences, and gossip, bullet-pointing the news in my head and even rehearsing my stories before telling them to Joanie in bed at night.”
Kaui Hart Hemmings, The Descendants

“Before too much longer I’ll forget her minute imperfections. That’s what you end up missing the most, those little faults. They burrow under your skin. Become endearing in retrospect.”
Tracy Guzeman, The Gravity of Birds

“I have been waiting 4 u too long....
Cant let u go... ♥”
Shanish singh thakur

Carol Rifka Brunt
“Things you'd never even seen with Finn could remind you of him, because he was the one person you'd want to show. "Look at that," you'd want to say, because you knew he would find a way to think it was wonderful. To make you feel like the most observant person in the world for spotting it.”
Carol Rifka Brunt, Tell the Wolves I'm Home

Cecelia Ahern
“I missed her, the idea of her.”
Cecelia Ahern, A Place Called Here

Karen Harrington
“How you can already miss someone when you are in the same room with them, I have no idea. But I do.”
Karen Harrington, Sure Signs of Crazy

Rainbow Rowell
“His eyes missed her as much as the rest of him.”
Rainbow Rowell, Eleanor & Park

Robin McKinley
“She wished for Ebono as she wished every time she saw Lrrianay at her father's shoulder, or any pegasus at any bond-mate's shoulder, or any pegasus. Or any time she took a breath, she wished again for Ebon.”
Robin McKinley, Pegasus

“and now i am back in the grey world where it tastes like plastic, the monotonousness is buzzing through your jaws and the boredom is pulling your hair.”

Catherynne M. Valente
“September laughed a little. She tried to make it sound light and happy, as though it were all over now and how funny it was, when you think about it, that simply not having another person by you could hurt so. But it did not come out quite right; there was a heaviness in her laughing like ice at the bottom of a glass. She still missed Saturday, yet he was standing right beside her! Missing him had become a part of her, like a hard, dark bone, and she needed so much more than a few words to let it go. In all this while, she had spent more time missing Saturday than seeing him.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two
