There is one thing a quote does that nothing else can do.. it can become part of you. You may never meet the person who said it, but that person is now a companion. Quotes help you get over the pain, feel love, make you smile and laugh, and help you through those days when you think that no one knows what you're going through.

"You're never gone. You're with me still. It's so hard sometimes--it's so hard all the time to go on without you, always wondering. The 'why's' rage through my mind and I get so confused. You're a great big mass of brilliance, strength, love, wonder, confusion, anger, and hope. And you're with me still. I stop at random moments and wonder where you are and what you're doing right at that exact second. I sit on the swings and ride them higher and higher, kicking my legs towards the clouds, and I stare up at the sky and think of you. Why? What is it about the sky, or swinging, or the back and forth motion that makes me think of you? But I can't answer that because it isn't any of those reasons that bring you into my thoughts. I remind myself of you and so the memory, the wondering, and the longing of and for you are with me always. It's so damn hard to go on without you, but you showed me the strength and the beauty in myself and it is that strength and beauty that help me go on without you in my life, but forever in me."-Dorothy-Ann


There are people, and I'm sure this is true for many, that I would love to contact, to let them know that things got better, that I'm recovering, that I am happier and will be happier still as time goes on. I want them to know this because I still love them. Not out of bitterness, the 'ha ha look at me now. I'm happier now that you're outta my life' feeling, more the 'It's okay. It really is' feeling. But there are some people you just can't go back and contact. You just can't. And even if you did, you probably won't know if they ever understood your motives. I'm sad now. There are so many people I need to talk to. But I can't

 Tell me all your dreams, and what you think love means, lock the world outside, embrace the gift of time, promising forever, knowing that this moment might be all that we ever find... "All We Ever Find" Tim McGraw

" I am never less alone than when alone.

"To love someone, when there is no chance of that love ever thriving, that is romance...."-Dawson's Creek


"You teach me love in subtle lessons, but you are the student if you do not understand that a day will never dawn when you are not on my mind, night will never see a midnight hour with you not in my dreams, no other will ever be allowed into my heart, and I'll never love again if it isn't with you...." -Matthew White


I always say that there is no greater act of courage than to be the one who kisses first....Mad about You


Women seem wicked
when you're unwanted." -Jim Morrison

You are part of my existence, part of myself. You have been in every line I have ever read. You have been in every prospect I have ever seen - on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become accquainted with. The stones of which the strongest London buildings are made are not more real, or more impossible to be displaced by your hands, than your presence and influence have been to me, there and everywhere, and will be. To the last hour of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil. But in this separation, I associate you only with the good, and I will faithfully hold you to that always, for you must have done me far more good than harm. Let me feel now what sharp distress I may." Great Expectations - Charles Dickens

"Sometimes I wish I had never met you, because then I could go to bed at night not knowing there was someone like you out there." -Good Will Hunting

when you develop an infatuation for someone, you always find a reason to believe that this is exactly  the person for you, now it doesnt need to be a good reason, taking photograpghs of the night sky for example.

"After a while, you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. And you learn that loves doesn't mean leaning , and company doesn't mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts, and presents aren't promises. After a while, you learn that you really can endure, that you really are strong and that you learn by letting go and with every goodbye"

"I wanna be the face you see when you close your eyes... I wanna be the touch you need every single night... I wanna be your fantasy and be your reality and everything between... I want you to need me like the air you breathe... I want you to feel me in everything .. I want you to see me in your every dream... the way that I taste you, feel you, breathe you, need you... I want you to need me like I need you..."

"All of my life where have you been... I wonder if I'll ever see you again.. and if that day comes... I know we could win... I wonder if I'll ever see you again..."

"Somewhere there is someone who dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile. So when your lonely, remember its true....that somebody, somewhere is thinking of you"

"I ran up the door and closed the stairs, i said my pajamas and hopped in my prayers, i turned off my bed and got into my light, all because you kissed me tonight."

"Love is giving someone the ability to destroy you but trusting them not to.i miss you when something really good happens, because you're the one i want to share it with. i miss you when something is troubling me, because you're the one who understands me so well. i miss you when i laugh and cry because i know that you are the one that makes my laugter grow and my tears disappear.i miss you all the time, but i miss you the most when i lay awake at night, and think of all the wonderful times that we spent with eachother for those were some of the best and most memorable times of my life."

"I may not get to see you as often as I like. I may not get to hold you in my arms all through the night. But deep in my heart I truly know, you're the one that I love, and I can't let you go."

"We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person."-Somerset Maugham

"Oh, the miraculous energy that flows between two people who care enough to get beyond surfaces and games, who are willing to take the risks of being totally open, of listening, of responding with the whole heart. How much we can do for each other." - Alex Noble

"How many loved your moments of glad grace.
And loved your beauty with love false or true.
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face"- W.B. Yeats

"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile,
a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the
smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to
turn a life around." - Leo Buscaglia

"Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket--safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable. " - C.S. Lewis

"I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out."

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." -1 Corinthians 13:4-7

"Don't want to leave but we all know sometimes it's better to go. Somehow we know we'll meet again, I'm not sure quite where and I don't know just when, You are in my heart so until then, back of my mind, bottom of my heart, always and forever

"What you can't have you can't resist." -Cruel Intentions

"You can Put it anywhere" - Cruel Intentions

""What is it you want? Someone to say goodnight to." Bounce

"I'm just a girl... standing in front of a boy... asking him to love her" - Julia Roberts - "Notting Hill"

"Within you, I lose myself -without you I find myself-wanting to be lost again."

"Sometimes you don't know what you're missing until you reach out to touch it. Sometimes you can't see how beautiful something is until it steps back into the light. And sometimes you miss a love you almost didn't lose. But when you need beauty, dreams, and love the most-you find them taken away from you. And when someone is drifting away from you, you feel it screaming inside your chest. Your heart feels numb and ignorant because love isn't easy. It's the worst thing in the world. True love breaks you, but you become real. When you are real and in love you will never be unhappy. You are only unhappy when you deny the truth held in love." -Jessica Goon

"Me? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw. I'm scared of what I did, who I am. I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling for the rest of my whole life, the way I feel when I'm with you." -Dirty Dancing

"All our young lives we search for someone to love. We chose partners, changed partners... all the while wondering if there's someone, somewhere who might be searching for us." -Kevin Arnold from The Wonder Years

"I know it's a cornball thing but: love is passion, obsession, someone you can't live without. If you don't start with that, what are you going to end up with? I say fall head over heels. Find someone you can love like crazy and who'll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I'm not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you'll come back. Because the truth is there's no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love-well you haven't lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven't tried, you haven't lived." -Meet Joe Black

"You might think your nothing special
You Might be losing hope
But baby dont you realize
How beautiful you really are"
- O town

"I love you and not in a friendly way, although i think we're great friends, and not in a misplaced affection puppy dog way although im sure thats what you'll call it. I love
you very simple, very true, You are the epitome of everything i have ever looked for in another human being and i know that you think of me as just a friend and crossing that line is the furthest thing from an option you would ever consider. But I had to say it. I just can't take this anymore. I can't stand next to you without wanting to hold you. I can't look into your eyes without feeling that longing you only read about in trashy romance novels. I can't talk to you without wanting to express my love for everything you are. and i know we'll probably queer our friendship but i had to say it. Cause ive never felt this way before and i dont care i like who i am because of it. and if bringing this to light means we can't hang out anymore well than that hurts me. But i couldnt go another day without just getting it out there. Regardless of the outcome which by the look on your face looks to be the inevitable shoot-down, and ya know i'll except that. But I know... i know that some part of you is hesitant and if theres a moment of hesitation than that means u feel something to and and all I ask please is that you just not dismiss that but try dwell on it for just 10 seconds. ALYSSA THERE ISN'T ANOTHER SOUL ON THIS FUCKING PLANET WHO HAS EVER MADE ME HALF THE PERSON I AM WHEN IM WITH YOU. aND I WOULD RISK THIS FRIENDSHIP FOR A CHANCE TO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT PLATEAU. Cause it is there for you and me. You can't deny that. and even if ya know even if we never talk after tonight please know that i am forever changed because of who you are and what you've meant to me. which while i do appreceiate it i'll never need a painting of birds bought at a diner to be remind me of." Ben Affleck- Chasing Amy

"Love is...
Love is when you wake up,
she is already on your mind.
Love is when you lost your heart,
she is all that you can find.
Love is when you want to be
the one who dry his eyes.
Love is when you see the truth
in every one of her lies.
Love is when you want to listen
to all her whims and woes.
Love is when you see her
"i love you", you silently stutter.
Love is when you tell the world
that you love her so.
Love is when you know you'll still
love him when shes lost her hair.
Love is when your eyes light up
when you see her there.
Love is when you hear your
heart break when she helds hands with him.
Love is also when you crumbled as you
hear them say it will last forever.
Love is also when you cry inside yet
smile outside when they say hi to you.
Love is also when you held your breath
and said "how do you do?"
Love is also when you let her go,
you know she is happy now.
Love is also when you know you'll
get over her some how.
Love is also when her happiness
is what matters to you.
Love is also when you let her love
him and not love you true.
Love is when you'll still love her
and still, she'll never know.
Love is when you swallow the pain
and slowly let it go.
Yet, love is a funny thing...
Love is when you smile when
you hear that its her and him no more.
Love is when you hear she sent
him through the door.
Love is when you try to "bump"
into her again.
Love is when she'll say "hi" to you
and there is no more pain.
Love is suddenly real love when
she says she loves you too.
Love is suddenly real love when she's
always loved you but didn't dare.
Love is suddenly real love when now your
life is nearly complete.
Love is suddenly real love when
everyday, its she you meet.
Love is suddenly real love when
you can have time for then and her and you.
Love is many splended thing
and a really complex feeling.
SO when you love someone, just tell him or her.
You'll never know how it'll turn way or the other.
Tell him before he's gone, tell her before shes taken.
Confess, confess whats there to lose.
When pride and ego's forsaken.
You might never know, she might love you too.
She or He, might feel the same way for you."

"Love is an entity unto itself. there are patches of it all over the place. it's not really tangible, but it's there, pools of it. blue pockets swirling like eddies. people don't meet because they both like burmese food, or because someone's sister has a friend who's single and new in town. people don't fall in love with each other. they just fall in love...just don't fall into love alone... it's devastating."

 Sometimes you're afraid to become a couple because you are afraid of losing what you already have with that person. But life is all about risks and it requires you to jump. Don't be a person who has to look back and wonder what they would have, or could have had. No one waits forever.

Calling it a simple schoolgirl crush was like saying a Rolls Royce was a vehicle with four wheels, something like a hay wagon. She did not giggle wildly and blush when she saw him, nor did she chalk his name on trees or write it on the walls of the Kissing Bridge. She simply lived with his face in her heart all of the time, a kind of sweet, hurtful ache. She would have died for him.

And when someone is drifting away from you, you feel it screaming inside your chest. Your heart feels numb and ignorant because love isn't easy. It's the worst thing in the world.

As I look back on all that's happened...growing up, growing together, changing you, changing me--there were time when we dreamed together, when we laughed and cried together. As I look back on those days, I realize how much I truly miss you and how much I truly love you. The past may be gone forever...and whatever the future holds, our todays make the memories of tomorrow. So, my lifetime friend, it is with all my heart that I send you my love, hoping that you'll always carry my smile with you, for all we have meant to each other and for whatever the future may hold."
