    Katja Millay
    “People like to say love is unconditional, but it's not, and even if it was unconditional, it's still never free. There's always an expectation attached. They always want something in return. Like they want you to be happy or whatever and that makes you automatically responsible for their happiness because they won't be happy unless you are ... I just don't want that responsibility.”
    Katja Millay, The Sea of Tranquility

    Steve  Harvey
    “To us, your power comes from one simple thing: you’re a woman, and we men will do
    anything humanly possible to impress you so that, ultimately, we can be with you. You’re the driving force behind why we wake up every day. Men go out and get jobs and hustle to make
    money because of women. We drive fancy cars because of women. We dress nice, put on cologne, get haircuts and try to look all shiny and new for you. We do all of this because the more our game is stepped up, the more of you we get. You’re the ultimate prize to us.”
    Steve Harvey, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment

    David Levithan

    سارة درويش
    “لأنها حين احتاجته، لم يكن معها، بل وأيضًا كان ضدها!

    لأنه لم يكن رحيمًا.

    لأن خذلانها الأهون عليه.

    لأنه لم يعرفها.

    لأنها أحبته.

    لأنه لم يفهم حنانها.

    لأنها كانت تظنه عظيمًا.

    لأنه لم يفكر بها.

    لأنها يجب أن تحبه.

    ولأنه أجبرها أن تكرهه.

    لأنها انتظرته طويلاً.

    لأنه لم يسمعها.

    لأنها اهتمت برأيه.

    ولأنه لم يعرها اهتمامًا..

    من المستحيل أن تسامحه.”
    سارة درويش

    Joanne McClean
    “So,” he began, after several minutes of silence, “how much did it kill you having to text me?”
    I chuckled. “A lot. I was just glad I didn’t throw away the receipt – I didn’t fancy digging through bags of rubbish.”
    Danny threw me another half-smile. “So you didn’t throw it out after all? I knew it!”
    I rolled my eyes. “Your arrogance astounds me … could you be anymore conceited?”
    “Could you be anymore attracted to me?” He quipped back.
    I scoffed at him. “In your dreams! Do you really get girls like this?”
    He quirked an eyebrow and flashed me that adorable crooked grin. “Many. Why – you jealous?”
    “Hardly,” I shot back at him, “you’re not my type so don’t flatter yourself.”
    He shrugged. “One hour with me turning on the charm and you’d be singing a different tune … trust me on that.”
    I laughed. “You know there’s a fine line between being charming and being cocky … and you my friend, fall into the latter. And it’s not something to be proud of – it’s not an attractive quality.”
    Danny smirked yet again. “Ouch. You really know how to insult a guy. Are you always this pleasant?”
    “Are you always this obnoxious?” I retorted back.
    “Ooh touché. You know – if I didn’t know any better – I’d almost mistake your frostiness for flirting.” He flashed me another half-smile and threw me a knowing look.
    I rolled my eyes again. “Well you would, wouldn’t you Mr Overly-sure-of-himself?”
    I watched as his confidence seemed to go into overdrive. “Say what you will, but I know you’re secretly charmed by me.”
    I shrugged. “Whatever … just don’t be too disappointed when I don’t fall at your feet.”
    He looked at me with a twinkle in his eye. “Well, try not to be too surprised when you do.”
    I raised an eyebrow at him. “Don’t hold your breath.”
    Joanne McClean, Learning to Breathe

    Maya Banks
    “She wanted happily ever after more than he could possibly know. She wanted forever. Problem was, she just wasn’t sure she believed in it anymore. It was why she clung to her fiction so much. She immersed herself in books because there she could be anyone and it was easy to believe in love and happily ever after”
    Maya Banks, Shades of Gray

    “And then he hugs me. Really hugs me. Like he thinks that there's only one of me and I'm special and I'm enough for him. Like he doesn't need anything else. Like he was alone and then I came along.”

    Katja Millay
    “Maybe one day you'll come back. Maybe you never will and that'll suck, but you can't keep doing this. The blame and the self-loathing and the bullshit. I can't watch that. It makes me hate you for hating yourself. I don't want to lose you. But I'd rather lose you if it means you'll be happy. I think if you come back with me today, you'll never be okay. And I'll never be okay if you aren't. I need to know that there's a way for people like us to end up okay. I need to know that there even is such a thing as okay, maybe even good, and it's out there and we just haven't found it yet. There's got to be a happier ending than this, here. There's got to be a better story. Because we deserve one. You deserve one. Even if it doesn't end with you coming back to me.”
    Katja Millay, The Sea of Tranquility

    Ann Brashares
    “He wanted to take his love back from her so badly. The old techniques didn’t work anymore. In fact, they’d never worked. How do you stop loving someone? It was one of the world’s more brutal mysteries. The more you tried, the less it worked.”
    Ann Brashares

    Ann Brashares
    “She was still waiting for him to come back to her, even though he wasn't going to. She was still holding out for something that wasn't going to happen. She was good at waiting. That seemed like a sad thing to be good at.”
    Ann Brashares, Girls in Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood

  • #15
    Katja Millay
    “You can't change the rules and think everyone else is just going to keep playing. I know what her hair smells like, but I can't get close enough to her to press my face into it. I know how soft her skin is on every part of her body, but I can't touch it. I knowwhat she tastes like, but I can't kiss her. I'm not allowed anymore; so why should I torture myself with being around her, just so I can say we're still friends?”
    Katja Millay, The Sea of Tranquility
