Favorite Quotes

But Anne was asking herself why being queen mattered so much, when the chance for true love was hers for the seizing.  And always she came back to the argument that the crown was hers for the seizing too.  She had never seen marriage alone as an especially fulfilling estate for women.  She had always wanted more in life – and more than she had ever dreamed of  would soon, God willing, be in her grasp.  There was so much that she could accomplish as queen…

Wait for It by Mariana Zapata

“You can love me, but that doesn’t have to mean anything, Dallas.  What do you want from me?”

“Everything.”

His next words didn’t make me like his imaginary next wife any more either.  “I always figured I’d grow old with someone, so I need to make the next one count since it’s for keeps.”

My heart started acting weird next.

And he kept going, signing her death warrant without even knowing it.  “She wouldn’t be my first, but she’d be the only one who ever mattered.  I think she could wait for the time to be right.  I’d make sure she never regretted it.”

“I always thought you looked like mine, but you sure do fucking feel like you’re mine, too,” he said, drawing a circle around my pulse point with his tongue.

Favorite Quotes

There were times and places to ask your woman to marry you.  In the crosshairs of the Charlemont Metro Police, soaked with dirty water, and two minutes after a death spiral into the Ohio?

Not.  It.

Love had a funny way of giving you faith in the one who loved you back.

No.  Freaking.  Way.  No way he was pulling the sister card again!  One day I was going to find that card, rip it to shreds, put a hex on it and bury it next to his body.
“I’m going to kiss you, damn it, and you’re going to like it.  And I’m going to take off my shirt and you’re going to manhandle me, and you’re going to stop being so damn nervous or so help me God I’m going to bend you over that sofa in the living room and spank your sexy ass.”
“You have to want it as much as you want your next breath – you have to want Colton as much as you need air to survive – love is survival.”

Maybe that was the true horror of the world. When someone didn’t abuse their position, something was assumed to be wrong with them. –Lesser Evils.
He was lightning, and in his shadow, all you got was burned. –Undertow.
And then there was Paris, of course, but there was always Paris. And while there were memories here, like there were memories at the house, the memories were really in his head. Wherever he went, they went with him. They weren’t tied to locations, no matter how much it seemed that way. –Epitaph.

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

Favorite Quotes

When it comes to girls (and in Colin’s case, it so often did), everyone has a type. Colin Singleton’s type was not physical but linguistic: he liked Katherines. And not Katies or Kats or Kitties or Cathys or Rynns or Trinas or Kays or Kates or, God forbid, Catherines. K-A-T-H-E-R-I-N-E. He had dated nineteen girls. All of them had been named Katherine. And all of them- every single solitary one- had dumped him.
I love you, Katherine. The name sounded different in his mouth when spoken to her; it became not the name with which he had been so long obsessed, but a word that described only her, a word that smelled like lilacs, that captured the blue of her eyes and the length of her eyelashes.
What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable? How very odd, to believe God gave you life, and yet not think that life asks more of you than watching TV.
It rather goes without saying that Katherine drank her coffee black. Katherines do, generally. They like their coffee like they like their ex-boyfriends: bitter.
He wanted to draw out the moment before the moment- because as good as kissing feels, nothing feels as good as the anticipation of it.
“I just want to do something that matters. Or be something that matters. I just want to matter.”
He missed that, too, and it hadn’t even happened. He missed his imagined future. You can love someone so much, he thought. But you can never love people as much as you can miss them.
“And the moral of the story is that you don’t remember what happened. What you remember becomes what happened.”

“I can do this all day long.  I just want you to know, I want you now.  I’ll want you later.  I’ll dream about you tonight, and I’m not going to stop until you’re mine.  You can fight it all you want.  Try running away.  I’ll spend my life finding you.  Try your damnedest to shut me out – I’ll just push until you can’t take it anymore.”
My heart was full.  My life was owned, altered, by a made man, by a man who in many stories is the monster, but my life wasn’t a story.

“So this guy,” I said, standing in the doorway of the living room. “François Rabelais. He was this great poet. And his last words were ‘I go to seek a Great Perhaps.’ That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”
“Don’t you know who you love, Pudge? You love the girl who makes you laugh and shows you porn and drinks wine with you. You don’t love the crazy sullen bitch.” And there was something to that, truth be told.
She taught me everything I knew about crawfish and kissing and pink wine and poetry. She made me different.
We had to forgive to survive in the labyrinth. There were so many of us who would have to live with things done and things left undone that day. Things that did not go right, things that seemed okay at the time because we could not see the future. If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless.

He had the best worst effect on me.  As if everything I was – and wasn’t – was desirable.  I didn’t even have to try.  Trenton’s unrepentant appreciation for everything he knew about me was addictive.
“I’m going to marry you someday.”  I smiled.  “When pigs fly.”  He shrugged.  “I can put a pig on a plane.  No problem.”  “Okay, when you dance around in a thong to Britney Spears in front of your dad.  That’s when we’ll get married.”  He took in a long, deep breath, and then blew it out, “Challenge accepted.”
“I am the one, Cami.  I’m it for you.  I know because you’re it for me.”
“I’ve had a lifetime of wrong,  You’re the only thing that’s right.”
