"Love comes to those who still hope although they've been disappointed, to those who still believe although they've been betrayed, to those who still love although they've been hurt before."
"Love is the same as like except you feel sexier and more romantic and also more annoyed when he talks with his mouth full. And you also resent it more when he interrupts you, and you respect him less when he shows any weakness, and further more, when you ask him to pick you up at the airport and he tells you he can't do it because he is busy. It's only when you love him that you hate him."

I knew I shouldn't like him cause I know it's not working, and everybody tells me that, and I convince myself I don't... and then, I like, see him and he'll, like, smile or put his arm around me or just say something, and then all that logic and convincing myself, just like, evaporates."
"We havent talked in a while, everything's different, he's got his life, I've got mine, but all he has to do is smile and hes got me again, and now I'm in this battle 2 get him out of my heart."
"That smile you give. God, everytime I think I can live without you, you give me that smile. You really shouldn't do that to me."
"I knew it was coming...I didn?eally want to...but I knew...And now it's here...the end. And you know what? We're just gonna have to start over again, only this time we won't mess up."
"One of the greatest feelings in the world has to be the realization, that you love someone, and they love you back."
"Everyone tells me that I should just forget about him...that he doesn't deserve me. Well, I agree. He doesn't deserve me. But I deserve him."
"When am I gonna understand and accept the fact that its over? O-V-E-R, its just a simple word that's so hard to understand...I think that the worst 5 words in the English language are, I-don't-love-you-anymore
Love is when you've ran out of excuses for hating someone.
"My "Once upon a time" didn't end "Happily ever after"
I get the best feeling in the world...when you say hi or even smile...because even if its just for a second, I crossed your mind

"Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart."
"We all want to fall in love. Why? Because that experience makes us feel completely alive. Where every sense is heightened, every emotion is magnified, our everyday reality is shattered and we are flying into the heavens. It may only last a moment, an hour, an afternoon. But that doesn't diminish its value.
Because we are left with memories that we treasure for the rest of our lives."

A little girl at the wedding afterwards asked her mother why the bride changed her mind. "What do you mean?" responded her mother. "Well, she went down the aisle with one man, and came back with another."
It's not as great a day for the bride as she thinks. She's not marrying the best man.
Marriage is the only war in which you sleep with the enemy.
In the blithe days of honeymoon,
With Kate's allurements smitten,
I lov'd her late, I lov'd her soon,
And call'd her dearest kitten.
But now my kitten's grown a cat,
And cross like other wives.
O! By my soul my honest Mat,
I fear she has nine lives.
-- James Boswell, Life of Johnson
Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, and half shut afterwards.

*Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and opens your heart and it means someone can get inside and mess you up. You build up all these defenses. You build up a whole wall of armor for years, so nothing can hurt you. Then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life. You give them a piece of you. They don't ask for
it. They do something dumb one
day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside of you and eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like 'maybe we can just be friends' or 'how very perceptive' turns into a glass splinter working it's way into your hear, it hurts, not just the imagination, not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart
pain. I hate love*
You always talk about how well you know me, about how you could point out any lie or deceit that I throw your way. I'm laughing inside, because if THAT was the truth... you'd know that my 'I love you's are nothing more than words.
At this point, you feel like nothing more than convenience & obligation. I never thought it would come to that, but my days with you are not cherished, but merely a fun way to pass the time.
