•"Love's not...a straight road. In fact, it's not a road at all. It's a tangle of emotion and sensation and history and memory and attraction and passion and betrayal and forgiveness. It's not something you can ever control or predict. It can make you do colossally brainless things that make perfect sense at the time. It can make you shoot yourself in the foot, over and over. It's not...reasonable."
•"All our young lives we search for someone to love, someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope, all the while wondering if somewhere and somehow there is someone searching for us." -The Wonder Years
•“If you could say anything to one special person, with no consequences, no judgement, no odd looks, what would it be? And who would you say it to?

It would be so much easier to tell someone how you feel, speak 3 words that mean more than any novel ever written”
•“People are not going to love you unless you love them.”--Pat Carrol
•"There's nothing quite like unrequited love to ruin a peanut butter sandwich." -charlie brown
•"Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it's cracked up to be. That's why people are so cynical about it.... It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more." --Erica Jong
•"Competition can damage self-esteem, create anxiety, and lead to cheating and hurt feelings. But so can romantic love."--Mariah Burton Nelson
