“she was completely whole
and yet never fully complete”

Alain de Botton
“The start receives such disproportionate attention because it isn't deemed to be just one phase among many; for the Romantic, it contains in a concentrated form everything significant about love as a whole. Which is why, in so many love stories, there is simply nothing else for the narrator to do with a couple after they have triumphed over a range of initial obstacles other than to consign them to an ill-defined contented future--or kill them off. What we typically call love is only the start of love.”
Alain de Botton, The Course of Love

Lauren DeStefano

“I didn't come looking for you the day you uninvitedly appeared on my doorstep

How did we go from nonchalant conversation
me waiting for you to turn me off
with corny jokes and mind dumbing conversation

To love and mind blowing chemistry that I've yet to make sense of
What are you here to teach me?”
Maquita Donyel Irvin, Stories of a Polished Pistil: Lace and Ruffles

Run wild with her unafraid
Of any rain storms
They only wash the mud away and make way
For double rainbows and sunny days”

“A true love story has always been about the journey, not the ending.”

Alessandro D'Avenia
“Amare è solo una forma di "ri-conoscimento", nella vita riconosciamo ciò che abbiamo già letto, o perché ci è stato narrato o perché quella narrazione ce l'abbiamo dentro di noi. Amore non è altro che riconoscenza, ci precede sempre, come le gemme precedono la primavera. Il primo sguardo non è altro che l'ultimo e il più compiuto, poi si tratta di esserne all'altezza con il passare del tempo.”
Alessandro D'Avenia, Ogni storia è una storia d'amore

Grace Willows
“She dreamed of autumn. Of chilly autumn winds and soft fall rains. She could even feel the cool moisture as the rain drops touched her face and ran down her cheeks. Her denim skirt and work boots felt heavy as the rain in her dreams splashed cold water against them”
Grace Willows

Alessandro D'Avenia
“Senza amore non conosciamo nessun viaggio di esplorazione del mondo, senza amore non giungiamo a conoscere né la morte né il modo di vincerla, cioè non diventiamo consapevoli di essere fatti di tempo limitato e di volerlo donare a qualcuno.”
Alessandro D'Avenia, Ogni storia è una storia d'amore

Jennifer McKeithen
“What are your intentions toward my sister?”
Marcus was taken aback. “Intentions?”
“Don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about,” Cahan snarled. “I’ve seen the way you look at her.”
“If you’ll take a moment to observe,” the Roman countered, mustering patience, “you’ll notice I’m not the only man who has cast his eye upon her once or twice.”
Jennifer McKeithen, Atlantis On the Shores of Forever

I remember the strength of her body writhing inside the velvet. And, suddenly, the velvet
“I remember the strength of her body writhing inside the velvet. And, suddenly, the velvet was gone as though my greedy hands had worn it away and she stood flushed and trembling before me. I forgave every complaint I had leveled against God at the sight of her tremulous beauty—wisps of curls like trickles of burgundy trailing over breasts as plump and round as a pair of bandy hens fattened up for Sunday dinner. I could scarcely touch her. My fingertips traveled over her roundness. In rashness I gathered her to me, pressed against her ... lay her down. I was inside her before her back touched the sheets. Her sighs could give birth to new stars.”
Kathleen Valentine, The Old Mermaid's Tale: A Novel of the Great Lakes

Maquita Donyel Irvin
“She was rare, few and far between
She suspected he would be as well
And the thought of two rare, few and far between individuals
Doing all that was necessary for that rare, few and far between
Meeting to occur
Drove her to write”
Maquita Donyel Irvin, Stories of a Polished Pistil: Lace and Ruffles

Jennifer McKeithen
“Most people never think beyond their birth. But if I had contented myself with everyone else's opinions of me, I wouldn't be the man I am today. People like us make our own destinies, Gwenwhyfar—and to the waves with the naysayers who oppose us.”
Jennifer McKeithen, Atlantis On the Tides of Destiny

Alessandro D'Avenia
“L'amore comincia sempre come un dolore, perché è la scoperta di un'assenza, come detta il "mi manchi" universale del lessico amoroso. L'amore, presto o tardi, ci porta in un territorio nuovo, ci fa uscire da noi per farci sperimentare la vita vera. È l'unica vera trasgressione dell'uomo, l'unica vera rivoluzione. Baudelaire diceva ironicamente che il solo fastidio dell'amore è che si tratta di un crimine in cui non si può fare a meno di un complice. Per uccidere il proprio egoismo bisogna prima innamorarsi,”
Alessandro D'Avenia, Ogni storia è una storia d'amore

Anuradha Bhattacharyya
“I always feel that one should be loved passionately, not as a matter of course.”
Anuradha Bhattacharyya, The Road Taken

Swapna Rajput
“This morning I awoke and was reminded of the preciousness of life. I realized I should express my gratitude to those who are so very important to me. Thank you for all you have done and have a great day!”
Swapna Rajput, Amazing Legends of India

Alessandro D'Avenia
“L'amore si accompagna sempre alla paura, perché non abbiamo mai il controllo dell'oggetto amato, seppur abbiamo cominciato a dipendere da lui per la conoscenza di noi stessi.”
Alessandro D'Avenia, Ogni storia è una storia d'amore

Kristina Steiner
“Closing my eyes, I breathe in the air around me.
When I slowly re-enter the world, I look into the most intense brown eyes I've ever seen. My breathing catches. I can’t look away. Fuck, he's hot. I can literally feel my brain cells frying. Who's dumb as a rock now, Alexis?
I feel completely frozen and can’t move. I don’t even think I want to. Blink, Richards, blink."


What happens to someone who has everything figured out and doesn't let anyone rattle her?
To some love is exciting. To her, it's a nuisance.”
Kristina Steiner, Equinox

Mirella Muffarotto
“The French poet Mallarmé and, after him, Borges, claimed that “everything in the world exists to end up in a book,” and if that’s true, and that even every man is a book, Federico was undoubtedly created by the pen of Keats or some other tormented Romantic poet; while Matteo was pure passion, like Shakespeare’s Romeo: spontaneous, intense, and impetuously real.”
Mirella Muffarotto, Soccer Sweetheart

Julian Barnes
“And even when he guessed that the love stories of the misled and the forsaken had become a little less authentic with each retelling . . . even if this was the case, he was still moved. Indeed, he was more moved by the lives of the bereft and the unchosen than he was by stories of success in love.”
Julian Barnes, The Only Story

Tatiana Vedenska
“They say time heals. They also say that time and work heal three times faster.”
Tatiana Vedenska, Two Months and Three Days
