"I cannot say that I loved him - it wouldn't be right. I can say that I've watched myself die, and that I've seen my lips form his name with my last breath."
- [I][U]Anthropology of an American Girl[/U][/I], H.T. Hamann

"You are the exception to every horrible thing that anybody can think about this world. And that I, even I, have ever thought about this world. Grass grows in your path where wasteland was before and double rainbows leap into the sky ahead of you. And we will have one hell of a wedding. I'll wear a shirt that says 'Superstition and Slavery' and you will go up the aisle in the bluest pair of shoes you ever saw."
- [I][U]Ancient History (All in the Timing[/U][/I]), David Ives

"Cheshire-Puss," she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. "Come, it's pleased so far," thought Alice, and she went on. "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where-" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.
"-so long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."
- [I][U]Alice's Adventures in Wonderland[/U][/I], Lewis Carroll

"It is a curious subject of observation and inquiry, whether hatred and love be not the same thing at bottom. Each, in its utmost development, supposes a high degree of intimacy and heart-knowledge; each renders one individual dependent for the food of his affections and spiritual life upon another; each leaves the passionate lover, or the no less passionate hater, forlorn and desolate by the withdrawal of his subject. Philosophically considered, therefore, the two passions seem essentially the same, except that one happens to be seen in a celestial radiance, and the other in a dusky and lurid glow."
- [I][U]The Scarlett Letter[/U][/I], Nathaniel Hawthorne

"So you attempt to hide your loneliness in public, to behave, in fact, as though you have too many friends already, and thus you hope to attract people who will unwittingly save you. But it never works that way. Your condition is written all over your face, in the hunch of your shoulders, in the hollowness of your laugh. You fool no one.

Believe me in this; I've tried all the tricks of the lonely man."
-[I][U]Counting Heads[/U][/I], David Marusek

"My parents danced together, her head on his chest. Both had their eyes closed. They seemed so perfectly content. If you can find someone like that, someone who you can hold and close your eyes to the world with, then you're lucky. Even if it only lasts for a minute or a day."
- [I][U]The Name of The Wind[/U][/I], Patrick Rothfuss

"I don't know you. The only thing I know about you, you're reading this. I don't know whether you're happy or not; I don't know whether you're young or not. I sort of hope you're young and sad. If you're old and happy, I can imagine that you'll maybe smile to yourself when you hear me going, He broke my heart. You'll remember someone who broke your heart, and you'll think to yourself, Oh, yes, I can remember how that feels. But you can't, you smug old git. Oh, you might remember feeling sort of pleasantly sad. You might remember listening to music and eating chocolates in your room, or walking along the Embankment on your own, wrapped up in a winter coat and feeling lonely and brave. But can you remember how with every mouthful of food it felt like you were biting into your own stomach? Can you remember the taste of red wine as it came back up and into the toilet bowl? Can you remember dreaming every night that you were still together, that he was talking to you gently and touching you, so that every morning when you woke up you had to go through it all over again? Can you remember carving his initials in your arm with a kitchen knife? Can you remember standing too close to the edge of an Underground platform? No? Well, ****ing shut up then. Stick your smile up your saggy old arse."
- [I][U]A Long Way Down[/U][/I], Nick Hornby

"Sorry is the Kool-Aid of human emotions. It's what you say when you spill a cup of coffee or throw a gutterball when you're bowling with the girls in the league. True sorrow is as rare as true love."
- [I][U]Carrie[/U][/I], Stephen King

"I don't believe in any actual God that marks the fall of every bird in Australia or every bug in India, a God that records all of our sins in a big golden book and judges us when we die - I don't want to believe in a God that would deliberately create bad people and then deliberately send them to roast in a hell He created --- but I believe there has to be something."
- [I][U]The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon[/U][/I], Stephen King

"And I pray one prayer - I repeat it till my tongue stiffens - Catherine Earnshaw, you may not rest, as long as I am living! You said I killed you - haunt me then! The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe - I know that ghosts have wandered on this earth. Be with me always - take any form - drive me mad! only do not leave me here in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!"
- [I][U]Wuthering Heights[/U][/I], Emily Bronte

"The moment i met you I saw that you were quite unconscious of what you really are, of what you really might be. There was so much in you that charmed me that I felt I must tell you something about yourself."
- [I][U]The Picture of Dorian Gray[/U][/I], Oscar Wiilde
