“If you have to speculate if someone loves you and wants to be with you, chances are they don't. It's not that complicated. Love, in most cases, betrays the one feeling it. Don't waste moments waiting and wondering. Don't throw away your time dreaming of someone that doesn't want you. No one is that amazing, certainly not the one who would pass you up.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“It's effortless to let go of self-absorbed people. It's challenging to let go of someone you care about and it's exceedingly difficult to let go of an ideal and a belief in someone because what exacerbates the disappointment of finding out they weren't who they presented themselves to be, is the betrayal of it.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“I don't cry because we've been separated by distance, and for a matter of years. Why? Because for as long as we share the same sky and breathe the same air, we're still together.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“I think anyone who opened their heart enough to love without restraint and subsequently were devastated by loss knows that in that moment you are forever changed; a apart of you is no longer whole. Some will never again love with that level of abandon where life is perceived as innocent and the threat of loss seems implausible. Love and loss, therefore, are linked.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Don't allow someone not worth it to have the power to occupy your thoughts. If they don't find you worth the effort or the time, why should you waste yours?”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Why do you think you deserve happily ever after? You were offered it before and tossed it away.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“When I say I'm going to forget you I know it's impossible to forget someone I once knew. What I want is to erase you from my thoughts and purge you from my memories. I'm saying it's what I wish for, not what is or could ever be.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“I found that I missed him the more he was absent from my life, and the more I missed him, the more I loved him.”
Donna Lynn Hope, Willow
“The most beautiful women I have known had one thing in common apart from beauty: humility. It's a shame that those with less to boast about do it the most.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“How different would people act if they couldn't show off on social media? Would they still do it?”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Chivalry: It's the little boy that kisses my hand, the young man who holds the door open for me, and the old man who tips his hat to me. None of it is a reflection of me, but a reflection of them.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Sometimes you grow to love the shadow that follows.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Don't concern yourself with the opinions of those who judge you. That is placing on them an importance they do not have.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“She had hope in her heart but after a while, with each step forward, hope stepped back. And for the first time in months, the first time ever, she began to weep, and as she did she knew that with the retreat of hope her heart had finally caught up with her head. And as each tear spilled over she let them go, she was letting go.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Do we really need a study on why people lie? They lie because it's easy, and cowards are good at "easy." Telling the truth takes moxie, and few have it.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Soul mates may be linked, but fight to separate, causing wounds and confusion. They teach what no one else can.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“If you want to call attention to your good deed then it isn't a good deed, it's a self-serving one. Why? Not only have you patted yourself on the back but you're fishing for others to do the same.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Warriors want a worthy opponent. There is no redress in fighting the pathetic.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“No, we aren't civilized, even in our business suits and high heels. People are as mean as ever, and as predictable. Underneath it all, we are not so different from what lurks in the wild, perhaps we're worse.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“She wasn't always a pillar of ice. Her warmth and good deeds were repaid with deceit and betrayal until little by little a chill took over.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“She didn't care about anything, or maybe she cared too much.”
Donna Lynn Hope, Willow
“She has her helmet, shield and sword. Does she finish him or take pity on the gutless thing before her?

Does she set fire and smoke him out, forcing him to fight, or does she let him live with himself and take satisfaction from knowing that he has never been in a real fight in his life and that one day he will have to face his demons in person, along with the consequences, and that both can be far more painful than anything she could ever do to him.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“The black widow, who had dispatched a lover or two, was sought out for her wisdom. The young spider asked her, "Did you keep his harmful secret under the threat of danger, or did you spin a web so confusing that he didn't know if you were friend or foe? Did you release him from the web and your presence or will you give another the venom in which to finish him?" The black widow was quiet and then said, "All of the above.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“It's way too easy to see the real face of a person. They're amiable and full of pretense when they want something from you, but the minute you don't give in, back away or put yourself first (like they do) is the minute they show you who they really are.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“If its danger you seek, come on over. I covet tranquility but beget the tempest storm.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“I wonder if pain comes from surrendering or resisting?”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Weird people don't care if they're weird. They are the most entertaining to converse with because nothing is off-limits.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“Heart thoughts are profound, hindsight aches and hope is obscure. I'm craving a great adventure -- one that leads me back home.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“It will be a welcome change for her to feel his hands on her hips and his breath in her hair; She's been forlorn, but like all emotions, even loneliness doesn't last. She has fallen in love with the man with the quiet strength, the confident humility and the hands that show the flame of the heart.”
Donna Lynn Hope
“We love because we can lose. If there was no threat of separation, no death to shake us to our core, we probably wouldn't love much at all.”
Donna Lynn Hope
