“I think sometimes the stars align whether we want them to or not. And we're drawn to certain people and places for no other reason than...Destiny.”
Morgan Parker, Non Friction

“Whether we deserve this or not, whether these turn out to be the darkest days of our lives or the brightest happiness, we've been guided by love. How can we go wrong when we're guided by love, Olivia.”
Morgan Parker, Hope

“Sometimes love brings us into the darkest corners of our lives," he told me. But we survive because love guides us through the fears and uncertainties. And other times, love brings us to the brightest sunshine, the most absolute happiness we have ever known.”
Morgan Parker, Hope

Morgan Parker, Hope

“Love makes you smart and strong. Smart enough to know there is nothing else that matters. Strong enough to know that nothing else can weaken you. When you're in love, you're at peace, you're whole, and always safe. I know I made you feel at peace.”
Morgan Parker, Textual Encounters 2

“You're not my words, Emma." I said, standing up and staring at the door while pretending to be gazing deep into her pretty hazel eyes. "But you're my numbers. You're all of my numbers." I paused, listened, and figured she had fallen asleep. "You're my infinity.”
Morgan Parker, Non Friction

“Our hearts belong together. And without yours, mine will stop beating.”
Morgan Parker, Hope
