Obviously we still love each other, but every time we get too close, one of us puts up a wall. And it's not easy being on the other side of that wall.

- One Tree Hill

You can never really know someone completely. That’s why it’s the most terrifying thing in the world, really—taking someone on faith, hoping they’ll take you on faith too. 

- Libba Bray

Right then, I wanted to go back in time and relive every moment with him. One more secret smile, one more shared laugh. One more electric kiss. Finding him was like finding someone I didn’t know I was searching for.

- Becca Fitzpatrick, Silence

I filled my head with thoughts of the future, of infinite possibly. There’s someone out there who will one day find me and fall in love with me and prove that all this waiting actually meant something.

- Perry Moore, Hero

Out of nowhere, you come walking in....without warning. I wondered where you'd been. In all of my life, how did I find a woman like you, just in time. Oh, here comes love.... like a flash flood. 

- Randy Rogers

I don’t pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me. Love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person. Love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of. Love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you.

- The OC

We all witnessed, discussed, and made a mental note of our friends’ so-called ‘failures’ through life, particularly in relationships. Yet when it came to making our own choices, we always thought that, somehow, it would be different for us. That the man we met would never cheat on us, that we in turn would never cheat on them. We had to have that eternal optimism, Jo reckoned, or none of us would ever get married or make any level of commitment in life.

- Jane Moore, Foreplay

I love badly. That is, too little or too much. I throw myself over an unsuitable cliff, only to reel back in horror from a simple view out the window.

- Jeanette Winterson, Gut Symmetries

Things weren't the same with us, not right away, and maybe not ever. We were growing up. We were still figuring out how to be in each other's liveswithout being everything to each other. 

- Jenny Han, We'll Always Have Summer

True love has a habit of coming back.

- Unknown

Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something. They’re trying to find someone who’s going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.

- Anthony Robins

A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life to be thankful for a good one.

- Elizabeth Taylor

I could have. What does this phrase mean? At any given moment in our lives, there are certain things that could have happened but didn’t. The magic moments go unrecognized, and then suddenly, the hand of destiny changes everything. But love is much like a dam: if you allow a tiny crack to form through which only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole structure, and soon no one will be able to control the force of the current. Love is a trap. When it appears, we see only its light, not its shadows. 

- Paulo Coelho

And there will come a time, you’ll see, with no more tears. And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears. 

- Mumford & Sons

Sometimes the things you want the most don’t happen and what you least expect happens. I don’t know - you meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet that one person and your life is changed. 

- Love & Other Drugs

“Its impossible,” said pride. “Its risky,” said experience. "Its pointless,” said reason. “Give it a try,” whispered the heart.

- Unknown

A few months ago I didn't even know who you were. Now all of a sudden, I can't breathe without you.

- Unknown

She wanted to teach me that people have two sides. A good side, a bad side, a past, a future. And that we must embrace both in someone we love. 

- The Tourist

I’m sorry if I’ve made your life more complicated. I’m sorry for a lot of things. But most of all I’m sorry I never got the chance to tell you that, no matter what happens next, I’ll never be anything but grateful for every moment I spent with you. Even though I keep fumbling for the right words, all I really wanted to say, was, thank you.

- In The Land of Women

It’s no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn’t even speak to each other if they met at a party.

- Nick Hornby

The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility. …If my love is real…freedom will conquer jealousy and any pain it causes me, since pain is part of the natural process.’ The danger lies in focusing on that pain, giving it a particular person’s name, and keeping it always present in your thoughts.

- Paul Coelho

Sometimes, I even try to imagine what it would be like to see him again. Which is crazy. It`s been so long I doubt I`d even recognize him now. I could probably walk past him in the street and not even know it was him. Oh, who am I kidding? I`d recognize him in an instant. Even in a crowd. And do you want to know something else? Deep down inside, I know if I saw him again, I would still feel exactly the same. 

- Alexandera Potter

When you’re as old as I am, my young friend, now is all you’ve got.

- Ever After

We all have that person. The person you loved before anyone else. The person you loved before you knew enough to be scared of what you were feeling. If you’re really, really lucky, they’re the only person you ever love. But if you’re like most of us, they’re the one that you can never quite get out of your heart.

- Unknown

Guys have this radar where once you stop thinking about them they know, and they try to talk to you once again. It’s like, they know when you’re trying to move on and they won’t let you. 

- Lauren Conrad
