Jenny Han
“That's when I finally got it. I finally understood. It wasn't the thought that counted. It was the actual execution that mattered, the showing up for somebody. The intent behind it wasn't enough. Not for me. Not anymore. It wasn't enough to know that deep down, he loved me. You had to actually say it to somebody, show them you cared. And he just didn't. Not enough.”
Jenny Han, It's Not Summer Without You

Christina Rossetti
“For there is no friend like a sister
In calm or stormy weather;
To cheer one on the tedious way,
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down,
To strengthen whilst one stands”
Christina Rossetti, Goblin Market and Other Poems

Steve Goodier
“As much as I enjoy romance, it’s commitment that I need the most. I need to know a love I can depend on, a love that says, “I will be with you through it all. I love you. And I will love you even when you may not be all that lovable, for sometimes I'm not very lovable either. You can count on me - always.”
Steve Goodier

Nina Sankovitch
“Desire for a person is not the same thing as having that unique appreciation and need for them, nor is affection. Desire waxes and wanes, and affection can be felt without long-standing commitment. But 'You matter to me' means that the long haul is accepted, even willingly taken on: I will carry you, hold you and applaud you, from here on in. Dependability: I will be here to take care of you. And when you are gone, I will be here to remember you.”
Nina Sankovitch, Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading

“Loyalty. Is it something only dogs know?
When I think of it, I wonder if I would rather have it than love. Whereas love is often an over-used word and an unpredictable feeling, the other is nothing but dependability.”
Donna Lynn Hope

Csaba Gabor-B.
“ Home is not a place. Home is security, predictability, reliability, dependability, safety, permanence combined together. ”
Csaba Gabor-B.

Lemony Snicket
“Though he was not as dastardly as Esmé or Count Olaf or the hook-handed man, Jerome was still an ersatz guardian, because a real guardian is supposed to provide a home, with a place to sleep and something to wear, and all Jerome had given them in the end was "Good luck." Jerome reached the end of the block and turned left, and the Baudelaires were once again alone in the world.”
Lemony Snicket, The Ersatz Elevator

John Steinbeck
“Please try not to need me. That’s the worst bait of all to a lonely man.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

“Apology makes you self responsible while excuse makes you undependable”
