"Don't think or judge, just listen."
"There is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing, throbbing moment."
"Wherever you will go, I will let you down, But this lullaby goes on."
"Life is an awful, ugly place to not have a best friend."
"I am coming to terms with the fact that loving someone requires a leap of faith, and that a soft landing is never guaranteed."
"There comes a time in every life when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your heart."
"I don't get it,' Caroline said, bemused. 'She's the only one with wings. Why is that?'There were so many questions in life. You couldn't ever have all the answers. But I knew this one.It's so she can fly,' I said. Then I started to run."
"It was like when you're a little kid and you run into your teacher or librarian at the grocery store or Wal-mart and it's just so startling, because it never occurred to you they existed outside of school."
"Because this is what happens when you try to run from the past. It just doesn’t catch up, it overtakes … blotting out the future."
"No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater...The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that's the key. It's like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot."
"Love is needing someone. Love is putting up with someone's bad qualities because they somehow complete you."
"All you could do was take on as much weight as you can bear. And if you're lucky, there's someone close enough by to shoulder the rest."
