"...if you can't love a girl who isn't all perfect, then you can't really love a girl who is. Not for real. Not unconditionally." Jan 11, 2015 04:58PM

"Unless you take the leap, you can't prove it. And once you actually make the leap, there's no need to prove it anymore. There's no middle ground. You either take the leap, or you don't. One or the other." Jan 01, 2015 06:17PM

Tina is on page 299 of 307 of Love Walked In: Yes, it's true, what I said earlier: A real life doesn't mean getting what you want; the achievement, the privilege, too, is knowing what you love.
But getting what you love? Having what you love love you back? Oh, my friend, it's a miracle: your one tiny life's head-on collision with divinity.

Pope John Paul II
“It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness; He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfies you; He is the beauty to which you are so attracted; it is He who provoked you with that thirst for fullness that will not let you settle for compromise; it is He who urges you to shed the masks of a false life; it is He who reads in your heart your most genuine choices, the choices that others try to stifle.

It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity, the courage to commit yourselves humbly and patiently to improving yourselves and society, making the world more human and more fraternal.”
Pope John Paul II

“There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment.”

“Life is an awful, ugly place to not have a best friend.”

“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”

Heart and Brain (Literature & Fiction)

Description: A little something I wrote a little over a year ago, found it in one of my many, many blogs online. This is the story of two friends Heart and Brian, and Heart's love problems. It's not romance, but it has a hint of it, or lack of it, actually. :) And no, there is no typo in the title. :) Thought it's appropriate to post here (especially the second chapter, given the nature of this site.
