Charles Dickens quote #330 from A Tale of Two Cities

Before I go he said and paused -- I may kiss herIt was remembered afterwards that when he bent down and touched her face with his lips he murmured some words. The child who was nearest to him told them afterwards and told her grandchildren when she was a handsome old lady that she heard him say A life you love.

Karen Marie Moning quote #234 from Shadowfever

Dying is overrated. Human sentimentality has twisted it into the ultimate act of love. Biggest load of bullshit in the world. Dying for someone isnt the hard thing. The man that dies escapes. Plain and simple. Game over. End of pain...Try living for someone. Through it all-good bad thick thin joy suffering. Thats the hard thing.

Meg Rosoff quote #250 from What I Was

I am almost a hundred years old waiting for the end and thinking about the beginning.There are things I need to tell you but would you listen if I told you how quickly time passesI know you are unable to imagine this.Nevertheless I can tell you that you will awake someday to find that your life has rushed by at a speed at once impossible and cruel. The most intense moments will seem to have occurred only yesterday and nothing will have erased the pain and pleasure the impossible intensity of love and its dog-leaping happiness the bleak blackness of passions unrequited or unexpressed or unresolved.

William Shakespeare quote #84 from Romeo and Juliet

O hereWill I set up my everlasting restAnd shake the yoke of inauspicious starsFrom this world-wearied flesh. Eyes look your lastArms take your last embrace and lips O youThe doors of breath seal with a righteous kissA dateless bargain to engrossing death

Mitch Albom quote #121 from Have a Little Faith: a True Story

I used to think I knew everything. I was a smart person who got things done and because of that the higher I climbed the more I could look down and scoff at what seemed silly or simple even religion.But I realized something as I drove home that night that I am neither better nor smarter only luckier. And I should be ashamed of thinking I knew everything because you can know the whole world and still feel lost in it. So many people are in pain-no matter how smart or accomplished-they cry they yearn they hurt.But instead of looking down on things they look up which is where I should have been looking too. Because when the world quiets to the sound of your own breathing we all want the same thingscomfort love and a peaceful heart.
