“The most fatal thing a man can do is try to stand alone.” ―Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.” —John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”―Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”―Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

“It isn’t possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.”―E.M. Forster, A Room with a View
