Richelle Mead
“Well, that depends, I suppose. I heard someone once say that men dance the same way they have sex. So, if you want everyone here to think you're the kind of guy who just sits around and—"
He stood up. "Let's dance.”
Richelle Mead, Succubus Blues

Jess C. Scott
“I felt like an animal, and animals don’t know sin, do they?”
Jess C. Scott, Wicked Lovely

Rick Riordan
“And,” Annabeth continued, “it reminds me how long we’ve known each other. We were twelve, Percy. Can you believe that?”
“No, he admitted. “So…you knew you liked me from that moment?”
She smirked. “I hated you at first. You annoyed me. Then I tolerated you for a few years. Then—”
“Okay, fine.”
She leaned in and kissed: him a good, proper kiss without anyone watching—no Romans anywhere, no screaming satyr chaperones.
She pulled away. “I missed you, Percy.”
Percy wanted to tell her the same thing, but it seemed too small a comment. While he had been on the Roman side, he’d kept himself alive almost solely by thinking of Annabeth. I missed you didn’t really cover that.”
Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena

Jess C. Scott
“V-Day…if you need this one day in a year to show everyone else you truly care for “your loved one” I think it’s quite stupid. I hate this commercialism. It’s all artificial, and has nothing to do with real love.”
Jess C. Scott, EyeLeash: A Blog Novel

Danielle Steel
“Things work out the way they're meant to”
Danielle Steel, No Greater Love

“Live like you were dying, Love because you are.”
Mark Green

أحلام مستغانمي
“لن يعترف حتى لنفسه بأنه خسرها. سيدّعي أنها من خسرته، وأنه من أراد لهما فراقًا قاطعًا كضربة سيف، فهو يفضّل على حضورها غيابًا طويلًا، وعلى المتع الصغيرة ألمًا كبيرًا، وعلى الانقطاع المتكرر قطيعة حاسمة.”
أحلام مستغانمي, الأسود يليق بك

Richelle Mead
“I get in that kind of situation all the time, Comrade. It's not a big deal." Anger replaced my fear. I didn't like being treated like a child.
"Stop calling me that. You don't even know what you're talking about."
"Sure I do. I had to do a report on the R.S.S.R. last year.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy

P.C. Cast
“Because you are the superhero fledgling. I’m just your more attractive sidekick. Oh, and the herd of nerds are your dorky minions.”
P.C. Cast, Untamed

Nicholas Sparks
“You're a hero and a gentleman, you're kind and honest, but more than that, you're the first man I ever truly loved. And no matter what the future brings, you always will be, and I know that my life is better for it.”
Nicholas Sparks, Dear John

Judith Martin
“There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.”
Judith Martin

Stephanie Laurens
“Just because I'm not forever by your side doesn't mean that's not precisely where I want to be.”
Stephanie Laurens, A Rogue's Proposal

Rick Riordan
“You sneaked into my cabin?”
Annabeth rolled her eyes. “Percy, you’ll be seventeen in two months. You can’t seriously be worried about getting in trouble with Coach Hedge.”
“Uh, have you seen his baseball bat?”
“Besides, Seaweed Brain, I just thought we could take a walk. We haven’t had any time to be together alone. I want to show you something—my favorite place aboard the ship.”
Percy’s pulse was still in overdrive, but it wasn’t from fear of getting in trouble. “Can I, you know, brush my teeth first?”
“You'd better,” Annabeth said. “Because I’m not kissing you until you do. And brush your hair while you’re at it.”
Rick Riordan, The Mark of Athena

Sylvia Plath
“I feel good with my husband: I like his warmth and his bigness and his being-there and his making and his jokes and stories and what he reads and how he likes fishing and walks and pigs and foxes and little animals and is honest and not vain or fame-crazy and how he shows his gladness for what I cook him and joy for when I make him something, a poem or a cake, and how he is troubled when I am unhappy and wants to do anything so I can fight out my soul-battles and grow up with courage and a philosophical ease. I love his good smell and his body that fits with mine as if they were made in the same body-shop to do just that. What is only pieces, doled out here and there to this boy and that boy, that made me like pieces of them, is all jammed together in my husband. So I don't want to look around any more: I don't need to look around for anything.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Augustine of Hippo
“To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek him the greatest adventure; to find him, the greatest human achievement.”
Augustine of Hippo

Shannon L. Alder
“Never rearrange your life in order to meet Mr. Darcy half way. If he couldn’t see your worth at the moment you met then he won’t two years later. May the halls of Pemberly be filled with his regrets and your life filled with thankfulness because of this revelation.”
Shannon L. Alder

Rainbow Rowell
“Every woman wants a man who'll fall in love with her soul as well as her body.”
Rainbow Rowell, Attachments

Adriana Trigiani
“That's when you know for sure somebody loves you. They figure out what you need and they give it to you -- without you asking.”
Adriana Trigiani, Very Valentine

Michelle Hodkin
“You're supposed to say, 'All I want is your happiness. I'll do whatever it takes, even if it means being without you.'"
"Sorry," Noah said. "I'm just not that big of a person.”
Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Suzanne Collins
“No problem," Gale replies. "I wake up ten times a night anyway."
"To make sure Katniss is still here?" asks Peeta.
"Something like that,"...
"That was funny, what Tigris said. About no one knowing what to do with her."
"Well, WE never have,"...
"She loves you, you know," says Peeta. "She as good as told me after they whipped you."
"Don't believe it,"Gale answers. "The way she kissed you in the Quarter Quell...well she never kissed me like that."
"It was just part of the show," Peeta tells him, although there's an edge of doubt in his voice.
"No, you won her over. Gave up everything for her. Maybe that's the only way to convince her you love her." There's a long pause. "I should have volunteered to take your place in the first Games. Protected her then."
"You couldn't," says Peeta. "She'd never have forgiven you. You had to take care of her family. They matter more to her than her life."
...
"I wonder how she'll make up her mind."
"Oh, that I do know." I can just catch Gale's last words through the layer of fur. "Katniss will pick whoever she thinks she can't survive without”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

Dorothy Parker
“I require three things in a man: he must be handsome, ruthless, and stupid.”
Dorothy Parker

Erin Morgenstern
“I have tried to let you go and I cannot. I cannot stop thinking of you. I cannot stop dreaming about you.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Jane Austen
“Oh, Lizzy! do anything rather than marry without affection.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Kim Harrison
“And then there are the rare ones who know love, who understand it. Who freely give of themselves, demanding only a return of that love,that trust.”
Kim Harrison, Every Which Way But Dead

Graham Greene
“Like some wines our love could neither mature nor travel.”
Graham Greene, The Comedians

Margaret Atwood
“Romance takes place in the middle distance. Romance is looking in at yourself through a window clouded with dew. Romance means leaving things out: where life grunts and shuffles, romance only sighs.”
Margaret Atwood

Laurell K. Hamilton
“Love is too precious to be ashamed of.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, A Stroke of Midnight

Oscar Wilde
“She is all the great heroines of the world in one. She is more than an individual. I love her, and I must make her love me. I want to make Romeo jealous. I want the dead lovers of the world to hear our laughter, and grow sad. I want a breath of our passion to stir dust into consciousness, to wake their ashes into pain. ”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Jane Austen
“It would be mortifying to the feelings of many ladies, could they be made to understand how little the heart of a man is affected by what is costly or new in their attire... Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
