“Marry me, Kiara,” he blurts out in front of everyone.
“Why?” she asks, challenging him.
“Because I love you,” he says, walking up to her and bending down on one knee while he takes her hand in his, “and I want to go to sleep with you every night and wake up seein’ your face every mornin’, I want you to be the mother of my children, I want to fix cars with you and eat your crappy tofu tacos that you think are Mexican. I want to climb mountains with you and be challenged by you, I want to argue with you just so we can have crazy hot makeup sex. Marry me, because without you I’d be six feet under … and because I love your family like they’re my own … and because you’re my best friend and I want to grow old with you.” He starts tearing up, and it’s shocking because I’ve never seen him cry. “Marry me, Kiara Westford, because when I got shot the only thing I was thinkin’ about was comin’ back here and makin’ you my wife. Say yes, chica.”

Joseph Fink
“As a last resort, with the orange nearing my face and my back pressing hard against the sharp edge of my broadcast table, I grabbed my phone to tell Carlos that if I didn't make it home tonight, it wasn't because I didn't love him, or didn't want to watch a documentary on special scientific graphs, or was too obsessed with my job to relax and enjoy a good meal and some television. It was only because I was zapped out of existence by a lunatic Non-John Peters. And that, in fact, I do love Carlos, and I would want nothing more than to watch a documentary on scientific graphs over some homemade linguini, or go out to eat again, or whatever.

But then, as I grabbed my phone, I thought: That's way too long to write for a text. So I just hit John Peters upside the head with it...”

Carlos Cuauhtémoc Sánchez
“— Las cosas no valen por lo que cuestan en dinero.
— ¿Entonces?
— Primero, por su valor de estima y segundo por su valor de servicio.

— ¿Cómo?
—Tu abuelita conservaba unos pétalos secos dentro de su Biblia.
No valían nada, pero eran su mayor tesoro. Cuando los perdió, lloró
mucho. Hay cosas que adquieren gran valor porque representan tu
pasado, tus sentimientos o porque has puesto en ellas algo de ti:
Intenciones nobles, creatividad, desvelos. Una obra artística original
puede no valer nada para otros, pero para el autor es invaluable; a
veces prefiere regalarla que venderla, puesto que no puede ponerle
precio a algo así.”
Carlos Cuauhtémoc Sánchez, Los ojos de mi princesa

“The drive was difficult, because at this point it seemed that everyone in town but the two of us had hopped onto the buzzing shadow entity train, and were loping around town as malevolent holes in our reality, emanating an energy that made the hairs on your arm stand and your bowels vibrate. Or maybe that was just the chemistry with Carlos I was feeling.”
Joseph Fink, The Great Glowing Coils of the Universe

Zack Love
“The official recruiting process for their posse began. Because Carlos, Narc, and Trevor each had high SQs, Heeb and Evan reasoned that adding the three to their group would raise the average SQ of each group member (much the way that colleges recruit individuals with higher test scores to increase the average test scores of their matriculated students).”

“I’m just not ready to give myself up, Sammy. I mean, there’s something perfect about virginity, and I haven’t found someone who deserves to take that perfection from me…”

“You’re loco, Carlos. Insane. Totally crazy… Most guys think they’re imperfect for still being virgins past the age of seventeen.”
Zack Love, Sex in the Title: A Comedy about Dating, Sex, and Romance in NYC

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“A caminho daquele que bem poderia ser o último dia da sua curta existência disse a si mesmo que, graças a Alícia, aprendera pelo menos duas coisas úteis que lhe serviriam para sempre, se vivesse para o contar. A primeira era a mentir. A segunda, e esta ainda a sentia em carne viva, era que os juramentos são um pouco como os corações: quebrando o primeiro, os outros não custam nada.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, El laberinto de los espíritus
