Just like a shoe, if someone is meant for you, they will just fit perfectly. No forcing, no struggling and no pain.
On the day when it will be possible for woman to love not in her weakness but in her strength, not to escape herself but to find herself, not to abase herself but to assert herself—on that day love will become for her, as for man, a source of life and not of mortal danger.
Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts … good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don’t hurt. They’re not painful. That’s not just with somebody you want to marry, but it’s with the friends that you choose. It’s with the people you surround yourselves with.
I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.

Someone who knows the first cut is the deepest, and doesn’t mind being my bandaid.
I’ll always wonder what sex with you is like.
No matter how in love with someone else I am, you are always the one I think of when I try to envision my most perfect counterpart. And man it pisses me off.
Some day, you and me will escape this crazy town, with its 3AM sirens and fast-talking people, and move back home, where the loudest sound at 3AM are the bullfrogs (because anyone who grew up in the country knows crickets are asleep by 3…) and you can actually see the stars at night and you know your neighbor’s name. I’m looking forward to that.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
