Janet Fitch
“Isn't it funny. I'm enjoying my hatred so much more than I ever enjoyed love. Love is temperamental. Tiring. It makes demands. Love uses you, changes its mind. But hatred, now, that's something you can use. Sculpt. Wield. It's hard, or soft, however you need it. Love humiliates you, but Hatred cradles you.”
Janet Fitch, White Oleander

Maggie Stiefvater
“I settled on the floor and whispered to Sam, “I want you to listen to me, if you can.” I leaned the side of my face against his ruff and remembered the golden wood he had shown me so long ago. I remembered the way the yellow leaves, the color of Sam’s eyes, fluttered and twisted, crashing butterflies, on their way to the ground. The slender white trunks of the birches, creamy and smooth as human skin. I remembered Sam standing in the middle of the wood, his arms stretched out, a dark, solid form in the dream of the trees. His coming to me, me punching his chest, the soft kiss. I remembered every kiss we’d ever had, and I remembered every time I’d curled in his human arms. I remembered the soft warmth of his breath on the back of my neck while we slept.
I remembered Sam.”
Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver

David Goggins
“You are in danger of living a life so comfortable and soft, that you will die without ever realizing your true potential.”
David Goggins, Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds

Vera Nazarian
“A choir is made up of many voices, including yours and mine. If one by one all go silent then all that will be left are the soloists.

Don’t let a loud few determine the nature of the sound. It makes for poor harmony and diminishes the song.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Criss Jami
“The funny thing about the heart is a soft heart is a strong heart, and a hard heart is a weak heart.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“Silk is a fine, delicate, soft, illuminating, beautiful substance. But you can never rip it! If a man takes this tender silk and attempts to tear it, and cannot tear it, is he in his right mind to say "This silk is fake! I thought it was soft, I thought it was delicate, but look, I cannot even tear it" ? Surely, this man is not in his right mind! The silk is not fake! This silk is 100% real. It's the man who is stupid!”
C. JoyBell C.

Sanober  Khan
“With callused hands
i tasted
the softness of the moon

in the coldest winds
i discovered
my soul's
warmest fireplace

in the roughness
of his stubble
the tenderest love.”
Sanober Khan, A Thousand Flamingos

“Watching my parents I've learnt a lesson many do not recognize. True love is not signaled by romantic, candle light dinners, red roses glistening with dew, or even Valentine's day celebrations. While these things may accompany our feelings, love is truly more than all those! Love is being with your spouse even when its not pleasing. Sometimes, love is walking down the hall, with your spouse hanging onto your shoulders and walking at a turtle's pace down the hall, just because surgery made life a burden. Love is patient, love is kind, love is Jesus! May we always remember love is not always tied in bows!”
Mary Kate

Sanober  Khan
wounds me
with soft pillows
with tender lips
and fingers”
Sanober Khan, A touch, a tear, a tempest

Munia Khan
“Soft feathers cannot make a cruel bird kind”
Munia Khan

Dejan Stojanovic
“Be aware of the high notes, of the blissful faces and their soft messages, and listen for the silent message of a highly decorated gift.”
Dejan Stojanovic

Mike  Norton
“War can condition a person to be resilient, tolerant, dependable, strong, and capable of so much more than one who had experienced nothing of it; it can bring out the very best in us, but also the very worst. Where is it, I ask, the proper conduit through which a soldier should be raised from whence they would become an upstanding citizen of the world, instead of a single country?”
Mike Norton

Criss Jami
“All great leaders find a sense of balance through their levels of reception. For instance, those who support a leader may soften him, those who ignore him may challenge him, and those who oppose him may stroke his ego.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Kevin Dutton
“The problem with a lot of people is that what they think is a virtue is actually a vice in disguise. It's much easier to convince yourself that you're reasonable and civilised, than soft and weak, isn't it?”
Kevin Dutton, The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success

Karen Marie Moning
My trews may be soft, lass, he thoughts, but what's in them isn't.
Karen Marie Moning, Kiss of the Highlander

Alice Hoffman
“...early on Monday evening, when the sky was the color of a velvet ribbon falling over the hills.”
Alice Hoffman, Here on Earth

“Sometimes life is hard ... so we have to squeeze it, touch it, play with it, and make it soft like a dough! Now it's soft enough to be shaped in any way we want! Keep moving, touching life, as this will keep it smooth and fun!”
Karina Fonseca Azevedo

Mitch Albom
“I drive a beat-up Mercury Cougar, with the windows down and the music up. I seek my identity in toughness - but it is Morrie's softness that draws me, and because he doesn't look at me as a kid trying to be something more than I am, I relax.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Mitch Albom
“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.
His voice dropped to a whisper. "Let it come in. We think we don't deserve love, we think if we let it in we'll become too soft. But a wise man named Levine said it right. He said, 'Love is the only rational act.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Jayita Bhattacharjee
“To be of honey and flames....diamond and dust...tender and fierce....laughter and sobs...is to know softness and courage in the same skin...for stitched are they in the fabric of womanhood.”
Jayita Bhattacharjee

Sarah J. Maas
“I had been pleased with how I looked, and had again selected it for myself: my hair unbound and swept off my face with a headband of braided rose gold, my sleeveless, dusky-pink chiffon gown- tight in the chest and waist- the near twin to the purple one I'd worn this morning. Feminine, soft, pretty. I hadn't felt like those things in a long, long while. Hadn't wanted to.

But here, being those things wouldn't earn me a ticket to a life of party planning. Here, I could be soft and lovely at sunset, and awaken in the morning to slide into Illyrian fighting leathers.”
Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury

Julie Anne Long
“She'd removed her gloves to sketch, and what a soft little paw she had; he was tempted to linger over it for a moment, as he would any small pleasure, and allow his imagination to complete for him how soft the rest of her would be.”
Julie Anne Long, Beauty and the Spy

Julie Anne Long
“Still, there was something he'd wanted to know for some time now, and he found he couldn't deny himself this particular opportunity. Very gently, almost stealthily, he leaned forward and rested the backs of his fingers against Susannah's cheek.
He regretted it instantly. For her skin was every bit as soft as he'd dreamed.”
Julie Anne Long, Beauty and the Spy

Ashley Poston
“I've already read about romance. About what it feels like to fall in love. I had always thought I would linger on his eyelashes or his soft cornflower eyes or his smooth pale skin, his halo of golden hair, but--
All of the books are wrong.
It misses the space between. The strange, thick air that fills with electricity as Vance leans closer. My skin tingles as he swipes a piece of hair behind my ear, his fingertips brushing against my cheek, and my breath catches in my throat. In all the books I've read, the author always described the physicality--the heat of their skin and the freckle on the left side of their lip and the way their eyebrows bunch together as they lean in, slowly, questioningly--but never the soft feeling of...just *being*.
Where I feel safe.”
Ashley Poston, Bookish and the Beast

Luca Evola
“Holding her smooth hands and fingers warm she says my name without saying a single word. Speaking to me with those soft soul-stirring eyes that ask for nothing more except for my love.”
Luca Evola, Arabala

Jayita Bhattacharjee
“To remain tender after passing through years so lonesome, to journey into the forgotten place, to remember the forsaken love is to remain soft though the tides have left the shores......”
Jayita Bhattacharjee

Silvia Vasquez-Lavado
“For Sherpas here, the land is everything. Losing two of our most brute, bold men within the first week reminds me that Everest is a spirit to be honored, not a peak to conquer.

I've been asking myself if I'm strong enough to keep up, to make it to the top, but maybe that's the wrong question. Maybe I should be asking if I'm soft enough to listen. To yield. To trust something deep inside, something in my bloodline, my heritage, that undercuts logic and strength.”
Silvia Vasquez-Lavado, In the Shadow of the Mountain

“Because it was all you were willing to give me. And I'd rather having you hating me than not have you at all.”
Elena Armas, The Spanish Love Deception

Bhuwan Thapaliya
“We never know what’s going on in people’s lives, and the best option is to be always soft and kind.”
Bhuwan Thapaliya

“Both in love and hate, soft is my character, hot is my attitude.”
