    Miranda July
    “In the recurring dream everything has already fallen down, and I’m underneath. I’m crawling, sometimes for days, under the rubble. And as I crawl I realize that this one was the Big One. It was the earthquake that shook the whole world, and every single thing was destroyed. But this isn’t the scary part. That part always comes right before I wake up. I am crawling and then suddenly I remember: the earthquake happened years ago. This pain, this dying, this is just normal. This is how life is. In fact, I realize, there never was an earthquake. Life is just this way, broken, and I am crazy for dreaming something else.”
    Miranda July, No One Belongs Here More Than You

    George R.R. Martin
    “Drifting snowflakes brushed her face as light as lover’s kisses, and melted on her cheeks. At the center of the garden, beside the statue of the weeping woman that lay broken and half-buried on the ground, she turned her face up to the sky and closed her eyes. She could feel the snow on her lashes, taste it on her lips. It was the taste of Winterfell. The taste of innocence. The taste of dreams.”
    George R.R. Martin, A Storm of Swords

  • #8
    Nicholas Sparks
    “I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”
    Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

  • #9

    Anaïs Nin, House of Incest

    Maybe that’s because it’s all you show them.”
    Maybe it’s all they want to see.”
    Megan Hart, Broken

    Stephenie Meyer
    “The bond forged between us was not one that could be broken by absence, distance, or time. And no matter how much more special or beautiful or brilliant or perfect than me he might be, he was as irreversibly altered as I was. As I would always belong to him, so would he always be mine.”
    Stephenie Meyer, New Moon

  • #13
    F. Scott Fitzgerald
    “Her grey, sun-strained eyes stared straight ahead, but she had deliberately shifted our relations, and for a moment I thought I loved her. But I am slow-thinking and full of interior rules that act as brakes on my desires, and I knew that first I had to get myself definitely out of that tangle back home. I'd been writing letters once a week and signing them: "Love, Nick," and all I could think of was how, when that certain girl played tennis, a faint mustache of perspiration appeared on her upper lip. Nevertheless there was a vague understanding that had to be tactfully broken off before I was free.”
    F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

    Micah Nathan
    “Young girls live in mythology.Their music, their moves, their relationships. Heartbreak makes them feel grown-up. Nothing a young girl wants more than to feel grown-up, and she'll lay waste to anyone for the taste of a broken heart.”
    Micah Nathan, Losing Graceland

  • #16
    Chuck Palahniuk
    “You are not special. You're not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else. We're all part of the same compost heap. We're all singing, all dancing crap of the world.”
    Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

    Megan Hart

    Megan Hart, Broken

    John Green
    “Lucky Charms are like the vampires of breakfast cereal. They're magical, they're delicious, they're a little bit dangerous and bad for you. They initially make you feel great, but then over time you realize that maybe your relationship with Lucky Charms is just a little bit unhealthy and you start to think, 'Maybe I don't want to be in a long-term relationship with a breakfast cereal that tastes delicious but damages my health.' But then the Lucky Charms gets all stalker on you and for some reason you kind of like that. It makes you feel special. So yeah, you spend your life with Lucky Charms. That's awesome. That's a great way to... get diabetes.”
    John Green

    “I'll never forget the first time I saw him-the wild shock of black hair, the beautiful blue eyes, the full lips with that perfected pout.Such a diva,even from the beginning.I was entranced, smitten, mesmerized.He had the face of an angel, and the voice of one, too.And almost from the start,I began the pattern of losing Nicholas.I was good at that.I guess i never believed i really deserved him,what he would bring to us both.What we would experience because of him.What we would be because of him.What i could be because of the strength and belief he had in me. ”
    Carolyn Gray, A Red-Tainted Silence

    “So here we sit on the island of misfit lovers. The broken, the maimed, the malformed, who still, all sensible evidence to the contrary, believe in love, crave love.”
    Isabel Sharpe, Knit in Comfort

  • #22
    “I think crush is the perfect word to describe it, too, because it simultaneously means 'to have a brief infatuation with someone unattainable' and 'to be violently squashed.”

    “Girls are taught a lot of stuff growing up: if a boy punches you he likes you, never try to trim your own bangs, and someday you will meet a wonderful guy and get your very own happy ending. Every movie we see, every story we're told implores us to wait for it: the third act twist, the unexpected declaration of love, the exception to the rule. But sometimes we're so focused on finding our happy ending we don't learn how to read the signs. How to tell the ones who want us from the ones who don't, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn't include a guy, maybe it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is just moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this: knowing after all the unreturned phone calls and broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment... You never gave up hope.”
    Jennifer Goodwin

    Kate Chopin
    “She was still under the spell of her infatuation. She had tried to forget him, realizing the inutility of remembering. But the thought of him was like an obsession, ever pressing itself upon her. It was not that she dwelt upon details of their acquaintance, or recalled in any special or peculiar way his personality; it was his being, his existence, which dominated her thought, fading sometimes as if it would melt into the mist of the forgotten, reviving again with an intensity which filled her with an incomprehensible longing.”
    Kate Chopin, The Awakening

    Toba Beta
    “I love the way you refuse my love.”
    Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

  • #26
    John Green
    “How long have you been dating her?' I asked.
    Nine months. We never got along. I mean, I didn't even briefly like her. Like, my mom and my dad- my dad would get pissed, and then he would beat the shit out of my mom. And then my dad would be all nice and they'd have a honeymoon period. But with Sara, there's never a honeymoon period. God, how could she think I was a rat? I know, I know: Why don't we break up?' He ran a hand through his hair, clutching a fistful of it atop his head, and said, ' I guess I saty with her because she stays with me. And that's not an easy thing to do. I'm a bad boyfriend. She's a bad girlfriend. We deserve each other.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska

  • #27
    Christina Meredith
    “I know now that this isn’t true love or perfection or happily ever after. It’s not even meant to be. This is a broken condom at the end of a drunken night. This is a generational walk of shame with two hundred spectators”
    Christina Meredith, Kiss Crush Collide

    Nicholas Sparks
    “She was everything I wanted. She was beautiful and charming, with a quick sense of humor, and she supported me in everything I did.”

    Sherrilyn Kenyon
    “And what am I? (Adron)
    You’re kind and decent. You have a good heart. (Livia)
    I have no heart at all. What I have is a mechanical substitute that pumps blood through a broken body, and half the time it malfunctions. (Adron)”
    Sherrilyn Kenyon, In Other Worlds

  • #30
    Richard Dreyfuss
    “She did the best that we could be; she was perfectly charming and perfectly loving. She was a dream. And she was the kind of dream that you remember when you wake up smiling.”
    Richard Dreyfuss
