“People say to someone they love: I'd die for you. They don't expect to, of course, have no plans to. They may believe it, or mean it, or it may simply be an expression of devotion.

“It isn't easy looking in the mirror and accepting that you were missing some element, some thing that kept a person you wanted from loving you.”
Nora Roberts, Key of Light

Nora Roberts
“When you wait all your life for something and then you find it, it's like a miracle. All the parts inside you that've been on hold, they open up and start beating. You were okay before, you were good. You had purpose and direction and everything was just fine. But now it's more. You can't explain what the more is, but you know, if you lose it, you'll never be able to fill those empty spaces in just the same way again. Not ever. That's terrifying. I'm afraid that what's inside me is just a trick. That I'll wake up tomorrow and what's beating in here will have stopped. It'll be quiet again. I won't feel this way. I won't feel the way I've waited all my life to feel.

I can stand you not loving me back. There's always hope that you will. But I don't know if I can stand not loving you. It would be like...like having something stolen from inside of me. I don't know if I can handle going back to the way I was.”
Nora Roberts, Key of Light

“It was a well-aimed arrow. Had anyone even noticed she was no longer at the library? All the people she'd worked with, worked for? All the patrons she'd helped? Had she been so replaceable that her absence hadn't caused a single ripple?

Nora Roberts

“She's been trained to put that moment off as long as she could stand and fight, to slash and burn, and take out as many as humanly possible. Because under the strength, the wit and the endless training was the knowledge that some day, some way, she wouldn't be fast enough, smart enough, lucky enough.

And the monster would win.”
Dance of the Gods

Nora Roberts, Red Lily

Nora Roberts
“I love you so much I`m barely able to do simple things like eat and sleep for thinking of you.I keep remembering how you looked with a shell held to your ear.You stood there with the water running from your hair,and your eyes the color of the sky and the sea, and i fell completely in love with you.I tried not to believe it, but i lost ground every time you got near me.When you left, it was like losing part of myself.I´m not complete anymore without you"

-Dillon Òbrian”

She wasn’t even sure she wanted anybody to be for her—right now, anyway.”
Nora Roberts, Red Lily

“She wasn’t the type to sit around ticking off the negatives of her life to see if she could make them outweigh the positives. If something was wrong, something was missing, she acted. Fix the problem and move ahead. Or if the problem couldn’t be fixed, she found the best way to live with it.”
Nora Roberts, Red Lily
