"I didn’t want to tell the story of what makes two people come together, although that’s a theme of great power and universality. I wanted to find out what it takes for two people to stay together for fifty years—or more. I wanted to tell not the story of a courtship, but the story of a marriage. <---- LOVE THIS STATEMENT SO MUCH!" Sep 22, 2014 08:48AM

Andrea is on page 815 of 980 of A Breath of Snow and Ashes: He had been smiling since I saw him. It lit his eyes, and without a word, he pulled the cap off my head and threw it over the rail. He ran his hands through my hair, fluffing it out into abandon, then cupped my head in his hands and kissed me, fingers digging into my scalp. He had a three-day beard, which rasped my skin like sandpaper, and his mouth was home and safety.

Andrea is on page 715 of 980 of A Breath of Snow and Ashes: “But we are here, all of us. And we’re here because I loved you, more than the life that was mine. Because I believed you loved me the same way.” I took a deep breath, so that my voice wouldn’t tremble, opened my eyes and turned to him. “Will you tell me that’s not true?” “No,” he said after a moment, so softly I could barely hear him. His hand tightened harder on mine. “No, I willna tell ye that. Not ever, Claire.”

“When the day shall come, that we do part,” he said softly, and turned to look at me, “if my last words are not ‘I love you’—ye’ll ken it was because I didna have time.”


The Fiery Cross is a long book, and it definitely reads as a long book. And yet,...more

Mo nighean donn,” he whispered, “mo chridhe. My brown lass, my heart.” “Come to me. Cover me. Shelter me, a bhean, heal me. Burn with me, as I burn for you.” I lay on him, covered him, my skin, his bone, and still—still!—that fierce bright core of flesh to join us. I let my hair fall down around us both, and in the fire-shot cavern of its darkness, whispered back. “Until we two be burned to ashes.Diana Gabaldon

Light flickered on the whitewashed walls, and the bed was full of shadows. “You are beautiful,” he whispered to me. “If you say so.” “Do ye not believe me? Have I ever lied to you?” “That’s not what I mean. I mean—if you say it, then it’s true. You make it true.Diana Gabaldon

“And when my body shall cease, my soul will still be yours. Claire—I swear by my hope of heaven, I will not be parted from you.” [...] "Nothing is lost, Sassenach; only changed.” "That’s the first law of thermodynamics,” I said, wiping my nose. "No,” he said. “That’s faith.”

Diana Gabaldon
“Broad-shouldered and tall,he drew the glance of every woman he passed,even with his bright hair covered by a sober blue tricorne. The breeches,which were borrowed,were substantially too tight,and did nothing whatever to detract from the general effect—an effect enhanced by the fact that he himself was totally ignorant of it. "You’re a walking inducement to harlots,” I said. "Stick by me; I’ll protect you.”

“I was dead, my Sassenach—and yet all that time, I loved you.” I closed my eyes, feeling the tickle of the grass on my lips, light as the touch of sun and air. “I loved you, too,” I whispered. “I always will.” The grass fell away. Eyes still closed, I felt him lean toward me, and his mouth on mine, warm as sun, light as air. "So long as my body lives, and yours—we are one flesh,” he whispered”

“For a moment, I saw him as he had looked the morning I married him. Duine uasal was what he looked, a man of worth. But the bold face above the lace was the same, older now, but wiser with it—yet the tilt of his shining head and the set of the wide, firm mouth, the slanted clear cat-eyes that looked into my own, were just the same. Here was a man who had always known his worth.”
