Famous Quotes:

“It stops here. With me and you. It ends with us.”

“Our eyes, locked together, speak more naked truths than our mouths ever have.”

“There is no such thing as bad people. We’re all just people who sometimes do bad things.”

“Maybe love isn’t something that comes full circle. It just ebbs and flows, in and out, just like the people in our lives”

“And as hard as this choice is, we break the pattern before the pattern breaks us.”

“Just because we didn’t end up on the same wave, doesn’t mean we aren’t still a part of the same ocean.”

“In the future… if by some miracle you ever find yourself in the position to fall in love again… fall in love with me.”

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

“All humans make mistakes. What determines a person’s character aren’t the mistakes we make. It’s how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.”

“You’re only human. And as humans, we can’t expect to shoulder all of our pain. Sometimes we have to share it with the people who love us so we don’t come crashing down from the weight of it all”

“Life is a funny thing. We only get so many years to live it, so we have to do everything we can to make sure those years are as full as they can be. We shouldn’t waste time on things that might happen someday, or maybe even never.”

“Just because someone hurts you doesn’t mean you can simply stop loving them. It’s not a person’s actions that hurt the most. It’s the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.”
