Jodi Picoult
“Do you know what it's like to love someone so much, that you can't see yourself without picturing her? Or what it's like to touch someone, and feel like you've come home? What we had wasn't about sex, or about being with someone just to show off what you've got, the way it was for other kids our age. We were, well, meant to be together. Some people spend their whole lives looking for that one person. I was lucky enough to have her all along.”
Jodi Picoult, The Pact

Edna St. Vincent Millay
“I know I am but summer to your heart,
And not the full four seasons of the year;
And you must welcome from another part
Such noble moods as are not mine, my dear.
No gracious weight of golden fruits to sell
Have I, nor any wise and wintry thing;
And I have loved you all too long and well
To carry still the high sweet breast of Spring.
Wherefore I say: O love, as summer goes,
I must be gone, steal forth with silent drums,
That you may hail anew the bird and rose
When I come back to you, as summer comes.
Else will you seek, at some not distant time,
Even your summer in another clime.”
Edna St. Vincent Millay, Collected Poems

“And I realized that some things just don't work that way. Life isn't a fairy tail. And the person you fall in love with doesn't always love you back. But that's ok, because at the very least it makes you stronger. And brings you to a place where you can fall in love with yourself. And that to me is more important than finding someone that only makes you complete when they are around, It's really about Finding the person that will teach you ALL the lessons you need to know ...so that you feel complete all by yourself. ”
Bethany Brookbank, Write like no one is reading

Kahlil Gibran
“Yes, there is a Nirvanah; it is leading your sheep to a green pasture, and in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem”
Kahlil Gibran, Sand and Foam

James Salter
“There is no complete life. There are only fragments. We are born to have nothing, to have it pour through our hands.”
James Salter, Light Years

Ernest Hemingway
“There is seven-eights of it under water for every part that shows. Anything you know you can eliminate and it only strengthens your iceberg. It is the part that doesn't show. If a writer omits something because he does not know it then there is a hole in the story.

(Interview with Paris Review, 1958)”
Ernest Hemingway, Ernest Hemingway: A Literary Reference

“Destroy yourself. Be on the edge of it all, and right before that weird place tells you to let it go completely; let the energy go in all directions. Falling on your face will never be fun, or purposeful. You don't own energy; you own the inertia!”
James Emlund

“Work on making yourself a complete being. Though you were born with the physical traits of one sex, you possess the characteristics of both - including those of plants and animals. You were created as a nearly complete universal being, but with flaws. True perfection can only be achieved when one recognizes that they need to combine their oneness with others and nature. Only then is one considered complete.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Sylvia Plath
“This is what it is to be complete. It is horrible.”
Sylvia Plath, Ariel: The Restored Edition

Emma Newman
“Am I just a mosaic of myself, held in the shape of a whole person?”

Bridget Essex
“Like she knows what's inside of me, what makes me.... me.”
Bridget Essex, A Wolf for Valentine's Day

Dossie Easton
“A great many people do believe that to be single is to be somehow incomplete and that they need to find the other half. [...] We believe, on the other hand, that the fundamental sexual unit is one person. Adding more people to that unit may be intimate, fun and companionable, but does not complete anybody.”
Dossie Easton, The Ethical Slut, Third Edition: A Practical Guide to Polyamory, Open Relationships, and Other Freedoms in Sex and Love

“You are the completeness of my incompleteness.”
Avijeet Das

Will Advise
“I'll make a book on learning how to be a complete moron someday, and I'm sure no one will buy it, because everyone will have mastered that already by the time I gather enough moronism to process it into digestible upgrade instructions for your average village cyborg-idiot.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Amaka Imani Nkosazana
“People lack morals, good moral character is important in every aspect of your life. Honesty and Integrity opens the door. Your character allows others to see you for who you truly are. Make your first impression a lasting impression. Ironically it may be your last impression”
Amaka Imani Nkosazana

“Nothing else is needed to be a complete human being than to have been born a human being”
Marty Rubin

Gary   Hopkins
“Live a life that you do not need to take a vacation from. Live in a way that makes yearly resolutions unnecessary. Make the kind of choices that leave you Happy and Healthy... where all of your needs are satisfied. Live a life where your only ‘wants’ are for others to feel as good as you do.”
Gary Hopkins

Crestless Wave
“What if you never meet the other half of your soul?
What if you're complete on your own?”
Crestless Wave

“The more we aware we become of God in us, the more overwhelmed we are with a sense of total fulfilment and completeness; needs disappear into insignificance. He is not a God who is a far of; he is Emmanuel! Nothing you can seek to do or wish and pray for could qualify you more for life. Nothing can make you more attractive or your life more significant than to simply become aware of his nature and presence in you and his favour towards you mirrored in the finished work of Christ”
François Du Toit, God Believes in You

“When we all play our part the world will run as designed. Do your part and do it now!”
TemitOpe Ibrahim

Girdhar Joshi, Some Mistakes Have No Pardon

Liezi
“Those who travel outward seek completeness in things; those who gaze inward find sufficiency in themselves.”
Liezi, The Book of Master Lie

Bryant McGill
“How we choose to perceive affects how we partake of reality; narrowly or completely.”

Ahmed Mostafa
“I held her like tomorrow would not come. It stitched me, if only for a second...”
Ahmed Mostafa

“Being alone is not synonymous with incompleteness.
Having a partner is not a precondition for completeness.”
Khang Kijarro Nguyen

“The specialty in all life is expecting the exception, while ignorant of real acceptance, until unexpectedly you re-witness your own ignorance to 'be' the cause that awakens others. One does not do this yesterday, or today. You do this with expressing honesty everyday.”
James Emlund

Vijay Fafat
“No completeness in the world,
but endless desires...”
Vijay Fafat, The Ninth Pawn of White - A Book of Unwritten Verses

Girdhar Joshi
“Every one of us lives between two poles – life and death. But most of us when enjoying life forget the other pole – death. We need to be constantly reminded of death to live life fully –in its completeness,”
Girdhar Joshi, Some Mistakes Have No Pardon

“No one and nothing can complete you. Only you, can complete you. Fill yourself with your own love. Learn to love yourself more. Actively work on loving yourself. Don't seek what is missing inside of you, outside of you. Don't try and fill the emptiness inside with things outside of yourself. You are enough. You are everything that you have been seeking. You are worthy of your own love.”
Akiroq Brost

“When you find someone who completes your incompleteness then never let them go.”
Avijeet Das
