"Instead of thinking about how to get love, begin to offer it. If you give, you receive. There is no other way."
"A candle loses none of its light by lighting another."
"Here she is, all mine, trying her best to give me all she can. How could I ever hurt her? But I didn’t understand then. That I could hurt somebody so badly she would never recover. That a person can, just by living, damage another human being beyond repair."
"Almost painfully he took his eyes from her."
"I think a bullet might hurt a little less than this loneliness"
"I won’t beg someone to love me. I learned long ago that there is no use in hopeless pleas of trying to make someone stay. I am too good to chase someone who does not know my worth and I am too wild to keep waiting for someone who doesn’t acknowledge my value. I want to be loved unconditionally. I shouldn’t have to fight so hard for it. I do not have the time to prove to someone that I am worth it. I shouldn’t have to prove any of that; I am worth more than that."
"The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven."
