Jennifer Worth
“That's the trouble, I can't forget him. He was everything to me, except mine.”
Jennifer Worth, The Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times

Guillaume Musso
“They were now both ready, not to begin from scratch, but to continue with a love that had survived for thirteen years in hibernation. They were no longer travellers without baggage. They were no longer twenty. They'd both been around the block a bit and had suffered without the other. They'd both lost their way without the other. 
Each had tried to find love with other people.
But all that was now finished.”
Guillaume Musso, Que serais-je sans toi?

Jessica    Thompson
“She looked different. Oh yes, that was it - I didn't love her anymore. 
People do look different when you fall out of love with them.”
Jessica Thompson, This is a Love Story

Freya North
“She's finding it hard to cope - her hopes have been dashed, the future she dreamed about has gone and she's scared about that. There's nothing in its place. She wants you back. She doesn't want to let go of everything it meant to her. 
Because the world seems horribly big and empty. Because the future is a very frightening concept when you'd previously planned on sharing it with someone. Because she's a girl, she's a romantic and she fears if she lets  go of her dream, she'll live a nightmare. Because she has a hope and she fears if she lets her hope go, who will she be?
The effort, the pain of clinging on is preferable to the wide-open fear of letting go.”
Freya North, Chances

Dorothy Koomson
“He just hijacks me. I love him. And I won't be able to give anyone a real chance until that's over.”
Dorothy Koomson, Marshmallows for Breakfast

“Villanelle for my valentine

Old love, I thought I'd never see the time
because of all we've done and often said
when I'd be yours, my dear, and you'd be mine.

And what relief to soften, and resign
the battle of the heart over the head.
old love, I thought I'd never see the time

when qualms and cold feet that could undermine
all we've held out for, dissipate instead
now that I'm yours, my dear and you are mine.

I'm still amazed how our two lives align
the two of us! A pair! Take it as read,
old love, I thought I'd never see the time

The tangle of our jumpers in the line,
the battle for the blankets in our bed
confirm that I am yours, and you are mine.

So then, this is my pledge, my valentine:
my hand's in yours for all that lies ahead.
Oh love, there's never been a better time
now that I'm yours, and finally, you're mine.”
Elise Valmorbida, The Book of Happy Endings: True Stories about Finding Love

“Maybe she'd ended up going to Ireland because whilst visiting her father she'd bumped into an old love from her youth, perhaps even her ex? Such spontaneous acts really only worked with men left over from earlier in your life.”
Eva Heller, Beim nächsten Mann wird alles anders

Dante Alighieri
“Within her presence, I had once been used
to feeling—trembling—wonder, dissolution;
but that was long ago. Still, though my soul,
now she was veiled, could not see her directly,
by way of hidden force that she could move,
I felt the mighty power of old love.”
Dante Alighieri

William Landay
“I have an idea that this is what enduring love really means. Your memories of a girl at seventeen become as real and vivid as the middle-aged woman sitting in front of you. It is a happy sort of double vision, this seeing and remembering. To be seen this way is to be known.”
William Landay, Defending Jacob

Sebastian Barry
“I miss her face, its beauty, and its beauty lost.”
Sebastian Barry

Knut Hamsun
“Og jeg var så kjær i ham, å hele verden blev borte når han kom. Jeg husker en mand som kunde komme gående! Han hadde fuldskjæg, han var som et dyr, han stanset iblandt og holdt den ene fot oppe og lyttet, så gik han videre. Han brukte også skindklær.”
Knut Hamsun, Rosa
