I read and speak gibberish. Do you?

“Being without you—thousands of miles from you—offers no relief at all. The fact that I am no longer tormented by your presence, or presented with daily evidence of my inability to have the one thing I truly desire, has not healed me. It has made things worse. My future feels like a bleak, empty road.”

—   The Last Letter from Your Lover | Jojo Moyes

“Trust that I am here. Trust me by my actions, my affections. Those are my currency.”

—   The Last Letter from Your Lover | Jojo Moyes

“Now I suspect I was in love with you even then, but we men are so thumpingly incapable of seeing what is before us.”

“Take him to you, if you must, my love, but don’t love him. Please don’t love him.”

“Your strengths might make you hard to approach, and might make your words sound uglier than what you actually mean, but they also make people look up to you. They admire you, whether you realize it or not. If you stop trying so hard to impress them, maybe a few will start warming up to you.”

“His scars will never fade. I am certain of that much. But perhaps . . . perhaps . . . with time, with age, we can be friends again. We can heal.”

“You aren’t normal. The things that make you special will give you all kinds of advantages in life, but they will also hold you back and expose your weaknesses. That isn’t going to change. And you’ll have to learn to adapt to that.”

—   Life Before Legend | Marie Lu

“I love you, until the day we meet again I will hold you in my heart and protect you there, grieving what we never had, cherishing what we did. I wish you were here.”

“Now I am sure of my feelings, and it’s too late. So I fold the three words back into my heart, for his sake.”
