'I've never been the one. Not for anybody.'

Book Quote by Nora Roberts from Black Hills

Do you know how many ways love can hit you? So it makes you happy, or miserable? It makes you sick in the belly or hurt in the heart. It makes everything brighter and sharper, or it blurs all the edges. It makes you feel like a king or a fool.

Book Quote by Nora Roberts from Bed of Roses

Broken hearts healed. Maybe the cracks were always there, like thin scars, but they healed. People lived and worked, laughed and ate, walked and talked with those cracks.

For many, even the scars healed and they loved again.

Book Quote by Cassandra Clare from Chroniken der Schattenjäger - Chroniken der Schattenjäger

I thought perhaps that when you told me you did not love me that my own feelings would fall away and atrophy, but they have not. They have grown every day. I love you now more desperately, this moment, than I have ever loved you before, and in an hour I will love you more than that.

Book Quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald from The Great Gatsby

Gatsby turned out all right in the end. It is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men.

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?

Book Quote by Sarah Ockler from Fixing Delilah

I was, but then I realized that I was holding on to something that didn't exist anymore. That the person I missed didn't exist anymore. People change. The things we like and dislike change. And we can wish they wouldn't all day long, but that never works.

Book Quote by Paige Toon from Baby be mine

It occurs to me as I walk across the hot sand, that I've become very good at lying. What a despicable talent to have. It's not something you can boast about, like being good at languages or playing the piano.
I'm a good liar.
My parents would be so proud.

Book Quote by William Paul Young from The Shack

You may have to declare your forgiveness a hundred times the first day and the second day, but the third day will be less and each day after, until one day you will realize that you have forgiven completely. And then one day you will pray for his wholeness and give him over to me so that my love will burn from his life every vestige of corruption.

Book Quote by William Paul Young from The Shack

Let me say for now that we knew once the Creation was broken, true fathering would be much more lacking than mothering. Don't misunderstand me, both are needed- but an emphasis on fathering is necessary because of the enormity of its absence.
