Quotes Lauren Liked

Ally Condie
“In the end you can't always choose what to keep. You can only choose how you let it go.”
Ally Condie, Crossed

Ally Condie
I love.
The most reckless thing of all.”
Ally Condie, Crossed

Ally Condie
“Love has different shades. Like the way I loved Cassia when I thought she'd never love me. The way I loved her on the Hill. The way I love her now that she came into the canyon for me. It's different. Deeper. I thought I loved her and wanted her before, but as we walk through the canyon together I realize this could be more than a new shade. A whole new color.”
Ally Condie, Crossed

Ally Condie
“Everyone has something of beauty about them. But loving lets you look, and look, and look again. You notice the back of a hand, the turn of a head, the way of a walk. When you first love, you look blind and you see it all as the glorious, beloved whole, or a beautiful sum of beautiful parts. But when you see the one you love as pieces, as why's, you can love those parts too, and it's a love at once more complicated and more complete.”
Ally Condie, Crossed
