“Let’s take it slow because some of the good things in life are worthy of reverence and appreciation. Let’s take it slow because what we have is like a cross-country ride, where all the breathtaking scenes must be breathed in and stared at with wonder. Let’s take it slow because getting to know you is like a trip to a museum where things, both wonderful and gruesome, are waiting to be discovered. Let’s take it slow because some things are best done at a leisurely pace — the slow dance, the first kiss, making love.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“I want you. But I’m scared to say it out loud. And it sucks because I've always been someone who always says things out loud.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Love is fireworks. It’s the first dance. It’s the first kiss. It’s the first time you make love. It’s the first hateful word. It’s the first fight. It’s the first tear you shed. It’s the first time you made up.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Because you see, when you’re a strong person, people often look to you to take care of them. People look to you for help. People look to you for strength.
And when your life spins out of control, it’s as if their lives are tied to your own and will come crashing down with yours.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“I want you to want me. But I want you to want me for all the right reasons.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Let’s take it slow because I’d like each moment we share to be etched in my memory. And I’d like these memories to make me smile wistfully someday. Let’s take it slow because I’m keeping a journal of our journey, and someday I’ll turn it into a book. I’d like our story to be rich in detail, and full of laughter and intriguing conversations. Let’s take it slow because all my life, I’ve always rushed into so many things, and they were all mistakes — I’d like you to be one of those things I’m going to do right. You deserve that much.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Last night, I realized that it is possible for love to die in an instant. It felt sickening to lie with you in the same bed and have your arms wrapped tightly around me. It no longer felt right.”
Christine Celis, Snippets of Imagery
“Love… is friendship. A deep, lasting foundation that you both decided to set on fire.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“I want you to tell me that you feel the same way for me. And I’d like you to tell me those feelings are worth it. I’d like you to say I’m worth it.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“He loves me. But I love you. But you love her. It’s always that way, isn’t it? You’re willing to wait for her just like I’m willing to wait for you… just like he’s willing to wait for me. Someday, we all might turn around and realize what we had in front of us all along. Someday, we might not.
But until then, we’re all stuck at waiting.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“I promised myself that I will not cry over you. We are nothing. I thought we had something, but you know, maybe it really was nothing. I have feelings for you and you clearly can’t reciprocate so– why would I waste my time feeling bothered by how obvious that you still haven’t moved on from her. It’s a vicious cycle, this predicament we’re in now. I don’t know what you see in her, and I honestly don’t know what I see in you. Love is fucking blind and it’s stupid.”
Christine Celis, Snippets of Imagery
“I want to do Sunday brunch. I want to make love when it’s raining. I want to kiss when I wake up. I want to hold hands and never, ever, ever, let go.
I want to do all of these.
I want to do all of these with you.”
Sanny Oropel, Snippets of Imagery
“All at once, because life’s too short and it’s always like magic when you find a good thing. All at once, because I’m much too wise to not know that lightning can’t really hit the same spot twice when it comes. All at once because right now, surrendering to irrationality seems to be the only thing that makes sense.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Love is a spark. It’s the smile that says come to me. It’s the flirty hello. It’s the scent of her perfume. It’s his new haircut. It’s the look that ignites a dozen possibilities. - Set on Fire”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Love is a flame. It’s when you get to know each other again. It’s the fights that will follow your first. It’s you finding another reason to fall in love with each other. It’s both of you never getting tired of swaying to your first dance’s song.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Love is a bonfire. It’s every kind word. It’s every sincere apology. It’s every compromise.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Don’t get me wrong. For the most part, being strong got me through a lot. And I’m thankful that short of people dying on me, nothing can make me break down.
There are times, however, when being strong feels a bit of a curse.
You see, when you’re a very strong person, people always expect you to take care of yourself. People always expect you to put on a calm and collected exterior. You’re not given much room to freak out and be human.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“being together… it will never be right. Thought it sure as hell feels like it could. We’d result to train wrecks. We’d cause whirlwinds. We’d start wildfires.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“It’s funny how you can have a broken heart while you’re still with someone that you’re madly in love with. Life fucks us hard like that.”
Christine Celis, Snippets of Imagery

“You don’t know me well enough to be confident that I wouldn’t be able to live without you. I survived almost two decades of ignoring the fuck out of you, I can survive plenty more.”
Christine Celis, Snippets of Imagery
“Love is a flicker. It’s that hidden desire. It’s the words you’re afraid to say. It’s stolen glances. It’s the passive-aggressive hints. It’s the mixed signal. It’s the first brush against his hand. It’s the first time you daydream about her.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Love is warmth. It’s the inside jokes. It’s the reassuring touch. It’s the late night talks. It’s the finding of common interests. It’s the sharing of ice cream. It’s the crying shoulder. It’s the acceptance of what’s ugly. It’s the first time you see her without make up. It’s the first time you see him pick his nose.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“Slowly, then all at once.
Slowly, as I take my time to know the things that would endear me to you. Slowly, as I attempt to cultivate a bond I hope would never easily sever. Slowly, as I get to know all your demons, and try to decide if I’m okay living with them everyday. Slowly, I also unleash my demons on you, hoping they won’t make me look ugly, wouldn’t make you think less of me.
Slowly, as I let myself get used to the idea that you can be a possible permanent fixture in my life. Slowly, as I tell the difference between what I think I see, and what’s really there. Slowly, as I find myself looking to you for reassurance that hey, I’m alright. Slowly, as I find my thoughts drifting toward you when I see or hear or find things that remind me of you. Slowly, as I catch myself dedicating to you all of the pieces that I’ve been writing.”
Nessie Q., Snippets of Imagery
“When things are finally falling into the right places, something happens that puts you back to square one.”
Christine Celis, Snippets of Imagery
