"We mistake sex for romance. Guys are taught that pushing a girl against a wall is romance. Sex is easy, you can do it with anyone, yourself, with batteries. Romance is when someone you like walks into a room and they take your breath away. Romance is when two people are dancing and they fit together perfectly. Romance is when two people are walking next to each other and all of a sudden they find themselves holding hands, and they don’t know how that happened."
— John C. Moffi
"I really do like listening to stuff that’s happened to other people. I guess that’s why I like to read."
— S.E. Hinton, That Was Then, This is Now
"I have been waiting all my life to be with you. My heart slams against my ribs when I think of the slaughtered nights I spent all over the world waiting to feel your touch."
— Henry Rollins
"When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you’d like them to be."
— Leo Tolstoy
