“That's when you know for sure somebody loves you. They figure out what you need and they give it to you -- without you asking.”
Adriana Trigiani, Very Valentine

“I even love the smell of books.”
Adriana Trigiani

“Mom, how do you know if the guy is the guy?”

You mean if he’ll be a good husband?” She pauses, then says “The ticket is for the man to love the woman more than she loves him.”

Shouldn’t it be equal?”

Mom cackles. “It can never be equal.”

But what if the woman loves the man more?”

A life of hell awaits her. As women, the deck is stacked against us because time is our enemy. We age, while men season. And trust me, there are plenty of women out there looking for a man, and they don’t mind staking a claim on somebody else’s husband, no matter how old, creaky, and deaf they are.”
Adriana Trigiani, Very Valentine
