“Not all breaks are clean. Sometimes we crumble, sometimes we erode. And those erosions, Eppie-the ones that chip away at our hopes and dreams and out plans for the futures-those are often a lifetime in the making. It's those we must watch out for, my dear.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“We're the summation of our histories, so if this guy is truly falling in love with you, he's falling for your past as much as he's falling for your present.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“You don’t ever fall in love with the current version of someone, because I hate to burst your pretty little bubble, but that doesn’t exist. We’re the summation of our histories, so if this guy is truly falling in love with you, he’s falling for your past as much as he’s falling for your present.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy

“I've actually got a new sorta-boyfriend and I suppose maybe I'll have shake-the-rafters, rattle-the-windows sex with him since I'll finally be legal and all."
"Eponine," Phil hissed. Maube I'd only said it for the reaction, because there was absolutely no way that would be happening withing the month. I could count the numbers of boys I'd merely kissed on one hand. I didn't even need a hand at all to number the guys I'd slept with. I figured the integer wasn't about to change any time soon, either.
"Obviously I'm kidding, Phil." His posture relaxed, only slightly. "We'll be quiet.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Life is not meant to be a peaceful experience, I don’t think. Don’t know how we can be so arrogant as to believe that’s something we could ever even achieve. When we’re not warring with one another, we’re warring within ourselves. When we no longer have enemies, we become our own.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“I'm trying to decide if I should be worried by the fact that your actions are slightly stalkerish, sitting on my roof in the dead of the night and all."
"I think what you should be more concerned with is the fact that I've waved to, smiled at, and exchanged pleasantries with at least three of your neighbors while up here, and not a single one of them had altered the authorities.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Thank you for this life and this love, the likes of which I never knew possible. You took a leap with me, and I’ll forever be grateful that you trusted me to fall with you.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Honestly, Eppie, no one had ever cared this much about being close to me. I sorta don't know what to do with it," he admitted. "And though I'm completely flattered that you are envious of the physical closeness these roommates and bugs share with me, you've forgotten one thing."
"What's that?"
His words were doors, each one of them opening up another part of him, inviting me in.
"That your heart already lives here." He picked up my hand and pressed my palm flatly against his chest, directly over his heart. "And you can't get any closer than that.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Sometimes the one who have the right to you aren't necessarily the ones who KNOW what's right for you”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Quit making out in my kitchen," Dan asserted as he loudly entered the room, his voice reaching us first. "You're going to contaminate the food. Totally unsanitary.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Adults often forgot what it was like to grow through childhood and into adulthood. They forgot that adolescence was a process of circumstances and emotions, chained together over time, the linking of epiphanies whose only requirement was to be experienced firsthand. Life was a firsthand sort of thing.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“The relationships you form in the trenches, though? The people who intersect your life during your moments of brokenness and stay around to fight with you and for you, I think those are the sticking types of relationships.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy

“Oh, Phil," I teased. "You know what happens when you assume."
"Yes. Someone makes an overdone, tripe joke about the spelling of a commonly used verb.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Hundreds of stars hung above us, brilliant white pinpricks in the black paper sky. They glittered and literally twinkled like diamonds, just like the nursery rhyme said they would.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Hey." The sound came out of him an octave deeper than all the others. "Can I ask your opinion on something else?"
"Yeah. Sure."
"What's your opinion on kissing me?"
I stopped breathing, aware that if I kept doing it, it would be all shaky and quivering. Utterly humiliating.
"I mean, not right now." I was so grateful Lincoln continued talking so his words could mask the nervous vibration in my exhale. I desperately needed another breath. Things were getting that fuzzy rimmed blackness that precluded passing out. "But, like, someday. Like, can I someday kiss you? Even if someday is really far off. Would that be okay?"
"I think that might be okay. Someday.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“We all harbored varying degrees of insanity within us, I figured. That was just the curse of being human. Some of us hid it better than others. Some managed to tame it out until the rest of the world thought it no longer existed. But none of that was truly ridding ourselves of the nature inherent in our beings.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy

Like that perfect, juicy bite from a fruit that’s ready for the picking when all you’ve ever known was the sourness of an unripe peach. Living without love made me ripe for it.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“Smiling was clearly effortless for Lincoln. It looked so natural and welcome on his face, like he was born smiling while the rest of us entered the world screaming.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy

“I’ll take you back to your place. I just want to stop by the duplex and grab one thing first.” “What’s that?” “My guitar,” he said as we trampled through the tall grasses. “I think this time we’re going to need more than just your voice to drown out this latest dose of pain.”
Megan Squires, Love Like Crazy
“The window didn’t shake when she yelled. I looked, but it didn’t even rattle. Her scream was less screamy than Dad’s.”
