Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is a love freebie, so I thought it would be fun to list some of my favorite quotes about love!
“I know part of our story is the electricity of our connection, but the other part is equally miraculous. It’s the simple fact that you walked into my life at the exact moment you did. You instead of someone else. In some ways, isn’t that even more incredible than the connection itself? That we found each other at all?” - Blake Crouch, Dark Matter
“Sweetheart, I’m telling you, you love someone like that, you love them the right way, and no time would be enough. Doesn’t matter if you had thirty years,” she tells me, “It wouldn’t be enough.” - Taylor Jenkins Reid, Forever, Interrupted
“Wanting to find love does not make someone weak; it’s not a character flaw. Life is hard, and grueling, and having someone root for you and travel beside you is a gift that anyone in the world would be lucky to have. I’m not saying that people can’t be happy or fulfilled on their own; of course they can. But being open to the possibility of love doesn’t make you weak; it actually makes you strong.” Crystal Cestari, The Best Kind of Magic
“Love can be an excellent motivator for change. Falling in love can help us to see the things in life that are truly important. It can make us want to be better people. It can teach us to sacrifice what is in our own best interest for the sake of someone else.” - Cynthia Hand, The Afterlife of Holly Chase
“Love does that. It makes you feel infinite and invincible, like the whole world is open to you, anything is achievable, and each day will be filled with wonder.” - Jill Santopolo, The Light We Lost
“Love me when I’m at my worst. Love me when you don’t agree with me, and when this no longer feels new and surprising. Love me through it all.” - Camille Pagan, Forever is the Worst Long Time
“You are not entitled to me, just because you love me. And not just because I love you back. You have to keep on earning that love, every day, again and again and again.” - Bethany Chase, Results May Vary
‘You are in love,’ he said, ‘for that is exactly how love feels. It is the lifting of a mask, the revealing of one’s true self to another, and the forced acceptance, the awful awareness that the other person may never feel the same way.’ - Kate Morton, The Clockmaker’s Daughter
“She fondly recalled the moment when the butterflies disappeared, when she was able to smile to herself and know that this wasn’t a case of falling in love; it was love. She wasn’t a high school student swept up in romance; she was a puzzle piece that had found the match to interlock beside it.” - Yoav Blum, The Coincidence Makers
Do any of these resonate with you?
