"I think a woman is born with the desire to hear she is beautiful." 
— Ted Dekker (Blink of an Eye)

“When I was eight, I found my best friend. Then, one day, I came home and she'd changed. During my absence, she'd become the most beautiful girl I'd ever seen in my life and I fell in love with her so completely that the very idea of ever being without her became an impossibility I couldn't stand. That same girl has always been the only one to ever hold my heart in her hands. She's the only one who can both build me and destroy me if she wishes and I wouldn't change that for anything. I can't live without her." ~ Isaiah”

“You don’t have to do that,” I said, staring down at my hands.

He turned his head to me. “Do what?”

I rubbed the sweat from my palms off on my jeans. “Stick around. You can leave if you want. I’m not expecting you to stay and babysit me.”

“Hey,” he nudged me with his shoulder, drawing my gaze to his. “I’m staying. You won’t get rid of me that easily.”

Despite the tremors of relief coursing through me, I didn’t relax. “The offer stands. Any time you want to go just… go.”

“Well, I don’t want the offer, because I’m not going anywhere, not unless you’re coming with me.”

“Why?” It took a second to realize that the barely whispered word had come from me.

He reached for my hand. His long, warm fingers laced through mine, and that was all the answer I needed.” 

― Airicka Phoenix,Touching Smoke

"And now I’m looking at you,” he said, “and you’re asking me if I still want you, as if I could stop loving you. As if I would want to give up the thing that makes me stronger than anything else ever has. I never dared give much of myself to anyone before – bits of myself to the Lightwoods, to Isabelle and Alec, but it took years to do it – but, Clary, since the first time I saw you, I have belonged to you completely. I still do. If you want me." 

— Cassandra Clare ~City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3)

"She's a stupid-'

'Be careful what you say next.' Daemon's voice was low but carried. 'Because what you don't know and what you can't possibly understand will get a bolt of light in your face.'

My eyes widened, as did pretty much everyone's in the room. Ash swallowed thickly and turned her cheek, letting her blonde hair cover her face. 

'Daemon,' Mr Garrison said, stepping forward. 'Threatening one of your own for her? I didn't expect this from you." 

— Jennifer L. Armentrout ~Obsidian (Lux, #1)

"Daemon stilled above me. 'I won't hurt you, Kat.' His tone was softer, but still laced with fury as he tried to control me without doing any real damage. 'I could never hurt you."

You and me. No one else."

“What did you say?” I asked.

“There’s really no translation for it,” he said, “but the closest human words would be, you are beautiful to me." 

— Jennifer L. Armentrout ~Opal (Lux, #3)

"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb..." he murmured.
I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word.
What a stupid lamb," I sighed.
What a sick, masochistic lion."

"About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him-and I didn’t know how potent that part might be-that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him." 

— Stephenie Meyer ~Twilight (Twilight, #1)

Taking her own blade, she pointed it skyward and allowed lightning to run down her palm and spread over the steel in a dance of light that was met by a racing streak of light from the sky. Even though it did not appear that she was playing at magic, her laughter came loose, full of joy when Lucas’s call from the sidelines reached her , “By the power of Greyskull… holy freaking crap.”
--- Heather Fleener ~ Mistaken 

Alia understood the truth all too well—love does not simply disappear. It may fade into the subconscious, and never be an emotion that is overtly displayed again, but it does not vanish. True, deep love might be tinged by dislike, morph into hatred, but at the root love was always there. It was the most powerful of emotions, and for good reason…in her Father’s domain, it was sacred. 
--- Heather Fleener ~ Mistaken 

“Tonight there is no past, no separation, no span of time between us, Alia. Tonight I am the one who will hold you and share your heartache… because it is what you have always done, and it is what you should have been allowed to do. The rest of this mess can be sorted out after.”
--- Heather Fleener ~Mistaken
