I love when you read a line that is so well written, that you just close the book and stare at the wall for a minute..

Limerence.'

There's no other word like it. The state of being infatuated with another person.

"There‘s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn‘t mean love at first sight. It‘s closer to love at second sight. It‘s the feeling when you meet someone that you‘re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don‘t love them right away, but it‘s inevitable that you will."

Born a Crime | Trevor Noah

"Trevor, remember a man is not determined by how much he earns. You can still be a man of the house and earn less than your woman. Being a man is not what you have, it's who you are. Being more of a man doesn't mean your woman has to be less than you"

"If you're Native American and you pray to the wolves, you're a savage. If you're African American and you pray to your ancestors, you're a primitive. But when white people pray to a guy who turns water into wine, well, that's just common sense."

"But now I understood that drive wasn't just about figuring out what you were going to get up in the morning and give back to the world everyday for the rest of your life. I was staying to understand that it was about figuring out what you were going to give yourself."

"I think we have soul mates, but I think we can have more than one, just like we can have more than one career, or more than one hobby, or more than one fucking favorite food. Different people connect to different parts of our souls."

** Wasn't sure how I felt about this book until the very end. There was a lot of it that I didn't love, maybe because I couldn't relate to it, but in the end it came together and I didn't regret reading it.

It Ends With Us | Colleen Hoover
post image

"Preventing your heart from forgiving someone you love is actually a hell of a lot harder than simply forgiving them."

"It stops here. With me and you. It ends with us."

*Colleen Hoover did a hell of a good job with this book! Lots of happy and sad tears were shed. It hit home since many women in my family, including my mother have been in abusive relationships. It helped give me more insight on it all. Thank you @sammisho for the recommendation

sammisho Glad you liked it! 10mo

"When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can‘t just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you‘re ready for it."

*Definitely one of my new favorite books, I didn't want to put it down but I also didn't want it to end. My first Colleen Hoover book and I'm in love with her writing, can't wait to read another one.

"It‘s like reading a good book. The kind where you don‘t want to skip pages to see what happens at the end. Each moment is a story in itself."

*I loved this book from the first page, it was one that I didn't want to put down and when I had to put it down I couldn't wait to start reading it again.

"Meeting you and falling in love with you was an experience I would relive a thousand times in a thousand different lives, if I was ever given that chance."

*Wasn't hooked on this book in the beginning, but like every Nicholas Sparks book it ended up winning me over and tugging at my heart strings. I didn't want it to end.

"There is a fire raging, and we have two choices: we can turn our backs, or we can try to fight it. Yes, talking about racism is hard to do, and yes, we stumble over the words - but we who are white need to have this discussion among ourselves. Because then, even more of us will overhear, and - I hope - the conversation will spread."

"In fact, maybe love, in the purest sense, is about being kind to someone with no expectation of how they‘re going to respond. They can ignore your kindness, reject it, or return it tenfold, but you just continue to be kind, and that is love."
