Richelle Mead
“Stop fighting me!" he said, trying to pull on the arm he held.

He was in a precarious position himself, straddling the rail as he tried to lean over far enough to get me and actually hold onto me.

“Let go of me!” I yelled back.

But he was too strong and managed to haul most of me over the rail, enough so that I wasn’t in total danger of falling again.

See, here’s the thing. In that moment before I let go, I really had been contemplating my death. I’d come to terms with it and accepted it. I also, however, had known Dimitri might do something exactly like this. He was just that fast and that good. That was why I was holding my stake in the hand that was dangling free.

I looked him in the eye. "I will always love you."

Then I plunged the stake into his chest.

It wasn’t as precise a blow as I would have liked, not with the skilled way he was dodging. I struggled to get the stake in deep enough to his heart, unsure if I could do it from this angle. Then, his struggles stopped. His eyes stared at me, stunned, and his lips parted, almost into a smile, albeit a grisly and pained one.

"That’s what I was supposed to say. . .” he gasped out.

Those were his last words.”
Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

Stephenie Meyer
“I'm gonna fight for you, until your heart stops beating.”
Stephenie Meyer, Eclipse

Aldous Huxley
“The surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they will have a chance of maltreating someone. To be able to destroy with good conscience, to be able to behave badly and call your bad behavior 'righteous indignation' — this is the height of psychological luxury, the most delicious of moral treats.”
Aldous Huxley, Crome Yellow

Sylvain Reynard
“I want you forever, not just for tonight.”
Sylvain Reynard, Gabriel's Inferno

J. Sterling
“It's not that I can't live without you; it's that I don't want to. There's a difference. We all make choices in life and I choose you.

My heart belongs to you. And I'm not asking for it back, even if you won't want it anymore. I'm just asking for a chance to have your again. I promise I'll be more careful with it this time.”
J. Sterling, The Perfect Game

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promise of life, as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away. This responsiveness had nothing to do with that flabby impressionability which is dignified under the name of the 'creative temperament'--it was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again. No--Gatsby turned out all right at the end; it is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Jarod Kintz
“If I promise you I'll show up fifteen minutes late, I'll always arrive on time.”
Jarod Kintz, It Occurred to Me

Lauren Oliver
“Promise me we'll stay together, okay?" His eyes are once again the clear blue of a perfectly transparent pool. They are eyes to swim in, to float in, forever. "You and me."
"I promise," I say.
Behind us the door creaks open, and I turn around, expecting Raven, just as a voice cuts through the air: "Don't believe her.”
Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium

J.K. Rowling
“I don’t expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with its shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses...”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Toba Beta
“There is a lie in between a promise and many excuses.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Jeaniene Frost
“You’d better not be messing with me. I like you, but if you’re feeding me a load of shit just to get some action, I’m going to plug a big silver stake right through your heart.(Cat)”
Jeaniene Frost, Halfway to the Grave

Kimberly Derting
“I pledge to keep you safe.”
Kimberly Derting, The Pledge

Jarod Kintz
“Two become one when two are in love—or when the waitress asks about our dinner bill. I’ll pay next time, I promise.”
Jarod Kintz, Love quotes for the ages. Specifically ages 18-81.

Orson Scott Card
“We're like the wicked witch. We promise gingerbread, then eat the little brats alive.”
Orson Scott Card, Ender's Game

“Tomorrow you promise yourself will be different, yet tomorrow is too often a repetition of today.”
James T. McCay

Natalie Valdes
“Grief, regret, pain, and of course anger. Another loss. And when you compare this one loss to the hundreds and maybe thousands that occur people stop thinking they matter. It does matter though. Every loss matters.”
Natalie Valdes, Pinky Promise?

Nalini Singh
“Stay with me. I’ll show you things that’ll make you laugh in delight, scream in passion, cry for the sheer joy of it.”
Nalini Singh, Angels' Pawn

Kristen Ashley
“Wherever it takes me, good to know in the end, it’ll lead back to you.”
Kristen Ashley, Rock Chick Renegade

“The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful. And being generous. Everything else is crap! I promise you! It's just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. So don't buy it. Be smart, be thoughtful, and be generous.”
Ashton Kutcher

Pramoedya Ananta Toer
“Lihat, ini Arok, yang tetap mempertahankan Tumapel. Dia dan pasukannya akan mempertahankannya sampai titik darah terakhir. Bukan karena imbalan uang, emas dan perak dan singgasana. Hanya karena kesetiaan pada janji.”
Pramoedya Ananta Toer, Arok Dedes

Robert W. Service
“A promise made is a debt unpaid”
Robert W. Service, The Cremation of Sam McGee

Toba Beta
“Your promise is your liability.”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

Justina Chen
“The pressure of his touch through my jacket and my sweater was more assurance than any promise ever made to me. It was a touch that said, I have your back and I am here for you. If a girl wasn't careful, she could fall in love with a touch like that.”
Justina Chen, North of Beautiful

Ann Aguirre
“For love to flourish there has to be trust. Promises don’t matter as much as
personal choice.”
Ann Aguirre, Aftermath

Hannah Arendt
“The possible redemption from the predicament of irreversibility──of being unable to undo what one has done──is the faculty of forgiving. The remedy for unpredictability, for the chaotic uncertainty of the future, is contained in the faculty to make and keep promises. Both faculties depend upon plurality, on the presence and acting of others, for no man can forgive himself and no one can be bound by a promise made only to himself.”
Hannah Arendt

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

C. Moorer
“One often has to do what they have to do in order to do what they want to do; however if you only do what you want to do then you will never do what you have to do!”
C. Moorer, From Failure to Promise: An Uncommon Path to Professoriate

Alain de Botton
“For the rest of history, for most of us, our bright promise will always fall short of being actualised; it will never earn us bountiful sums of money or beget exemplary objects or organisations....

Most of us stand poised at the edge of brilliance, haunted by the knowledge of our proximity, yet still demonstrably on the wrong side of the line, our dealings with reality undermined by a range of minor yet critical psychological flaws (a little too much optimism, an unprocessed rebelliousness, a fatal impatience or sentimentality). We are like an exquisite high-speed aircraft which for lack of a tiny part is left stranded beside the runway, rendered slower than a tractor or a bicycle.”
Alain de Botton, The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work

Christie Craig
“Love meant hope. Without love, life held no promise.”
Christie Craig, Shut Up and Kiss Me

Jarod Kintz
“When I see a rainbow, I think of God’s promise and how He’s keeping it. Then I remember the promise I made to Roy G. Biv, and how I just broke it.”
Jarod Kintz, 99 Cents For Some Nonsense
