“Not everyone is capable of fighting the great fights. Not everyone is brave and strong and powerful. Let them have their causes. Allow them their victories, when victories can be had, without begrudging the wrongs that they right. Attending to injustice, no matter how small, is always a worthy cause.”
“It’s pronounced appealing, Darling.”
“Your jokes are terrible.”
“It’s pronounced tremendous.”
“Life isn’t a fifty-fifty split, that’s just being lazy. Burdens are weightless, worlds change, and love endures when both people are contributing their maximum.”
❝And when you were nineteen you were harmless?❞
❝You know better, Darling. I’ve never been harmless. And it’s a good thing too, because you don’t want harmless.❞
❝But if you truly own her, own her heart, if she is truly yours, abandoned to you, you cannot discard her. She is where she belongs, hence the ownership.❞
❝Possessions don’t have thoughts or feelings; they’re inanimate objects.❞
❝Ah, but the women are never inanimate, not the way I do it.❞
❝Prepare yourself to be kissed now.❞
“I’ve been so careful, taking things slow, because I wanted to fall in love with your mind and heart first, not muck it up with arms and legs and appendages. You’re brilliant. And soulful. And beautiful. And clever and kind.”
“If it’s possible to have a partner who gives all of themselves without reservation, who looks forward to working and sacrificing for me just as I look forward to doing the same for her, who can’t help but love ferociously, brutally, and unconditionally—and even perhaps without reason or sound judgment—that’s what I want.”
“I loved his goodness and wrongness, his unwavering priorities and his mulishness. I loved his patience—granted, I also hated his patience—and I loved his wit.”
"Because I look at you, and I think, you and me, we're going to get married one day."
“I want to be your first everything.”WHAT CAN I SAY!
“Girls aren't beautiful, they're pretty. Beautiful is too heavy a word to assign to a girl. Women are beautiful because their faces show that they know they have lost something and picked up something else.”
- Henry Rollins
