Quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald

She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul.

Oh, I just want what we all want: a comfortable couch, a nice beverage, a weekend of no distractions and a book that will stop time, lift me out of my quotidian existence and alter my thinking forever.

Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

What if you slept ? And what if in your sleep you dreamed? And what if in your dream you went to heaven and there plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if when you awoke you had that flower in your hand? Ah, what then?

Quote by David Levithan - Will Grayson, Will Grayson

When things break, it's not the actual breaking that prevents them from getting back together again. It's because a little piece gets lost - the two remaining ends couldn't fit together, even if they wanted to. The whole shape has changed.

Quote by Alice Oseman - Solitaire

But books – they’re different. When you watch a film, you’re sort of an outsider looking in. With a book – you’re right there. You are inside. You are the main character.

Book Quote by Paul Auster from The Brooklyn Follies

Reading was my escape and my comfort, my consolation, my stimulant of choice: reading for the pure pleasure of it, for the beautiful stillness that surrounds you when you hear an author's words reverberating in your head.

Book Quote by David Levithan - Every Day

It's one thing to fall in love. It's another to feel someone else fall in love with you, and to feel a responsibility toward that love.

Quote by Unknown

There’s a difference between saying good bye and letting go. Saying good bye is 'I'll see you again when I'm ready to hold your hand, and when you're ready to hold mine.' Letting go is 'I'll miss your hand. But I realized it's not mine to hold, and I will never hold it again.'

Song Quote by Skillet - Lucy, Album: Awake

I'd give up all the world to see that little piece of heaven looking back at me.
Now that it's over, I just wanna hold her.
I've gotta live with the choices I made and I can't live with myself today.

I'm Starting to realize that people lack good mirrors. It's so hard for anyone to show us how we look, and so hard for us to show anyone how we feel.

Quote from Never Been Kissed, by Josie Geller

The right guy, he's out there. I'm just not gonna go kiss a whole bunch of losers to get to him. That thing, that moment, when you kiss someone and everything around becomes hazy and the only thing in focus is you and this person and you realize that that person is the only person that you're supposed to kiss for the rest of your life, and for one moment you get this amazing gift and you want to laugh and you want to cry because you feel so lucky that you found it and so scared that that it will go away all at the same time.

Book Quote by Kieran Scott from Dear Bully: Seventy Authors Tell Their Stories

It was because of the way you treated me that I learned to be my own person, have my own opinion, stand my ground. It’s at least partially because I survived you that I’m the person I am today.

Quote by Raymond "Red" Reddington from The Blacklist in Season 1 Episode 9

Raymond 'Red' Reddington: "Have you ever sailed across an ocean, Donald?"
Donald Ressler: "No."
Raymond 'Red' Reddington: "On a sailboat, surrounded by sea with no land in sight, without even the possibility of sighting land for days to come? To stand at the helm of your destiny. I want that, one more time. I want to be in the Piazza del Campo in Siena. To feel the surge as 10 racehorses go thundering by. I want another meal in Paris, at L'Ambroisie, at the Place des Vosges. I want another bottle of wine. And then another. I want the warmth of a woman and a cool set of sheets. One more night of jazz at the Vanguard. I want to stand on the summits and smoke Cubans and feel the sun on my face for as long as I can. Walk on the Wall again. Climb the Tower. Ride the River. Stare at the Frescos. I want to sit in the garden and read one more good book. Most of all I want to sleep. I want to sleep like I slept when I was a boy. Give me that. Just one time."

Book Quote by Sarah Dessen from This Lullaby

No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater...The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that's the key. It's like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.

His father replied 'Forget finding the right woman, focus on being the right man.'

Quote by Unknown

The best relationship is when you two can act like lovers and best friends. It's when you have more playful moments than serious moments. It's when you can joke around, have unexpected hugs, and random kisses. It's when you two give each other that specific stare and just smile. It's when you'll rather chill inside to watch movies, eat junk food, and cuddle than go out all the time. It's when you'll stay up all night just to settle your arguments and problems. It's when you can completly act yourself and they can still love you for who you are.

Book Quote by Michael Ende from The Neverending Story

If you have never spent whole afternoons with burning ears and rumpled hair, forgetting the world around you over a book, forgetting cold and hunger-

If you have never read secretly under the bedclothes with a flashlight, because your father or mother or some other well-meaning person has switched off the lamp on the plausible ground that it was time to sleep because you had to get up so early-

If you have never wept bitter tears because a wonderful story has come to an end and you must take your leave of the characters with whom you have shared so many adventures, whom you have loved and admired, for whom you have hoped and feared, and without whose company life seems empty and meaningless-

If such things have not been part of your own experience, you probably won't understand what Bastian did next.
