10 lecții despre dragoste și dorință din cărți

“There are two ways to reach me: by way of kisses or by way of the imagination. But there is a hierarchy: the kisses alone don’t work.”

Anaïs Nin, Henry And June 

 

“I taught him, ‘he quavered, “to trust in love. I said: ‘when love comes, that is reality.’ I said: ‘Passion does not blind. No. Passion is sanity, and the woman you love, she is the only person you will ever really understand.”

E.M. Forster, A Room with a View 

 

“I’m thinking that I was a lonely, hopeless person, and I might have fallen in love with the first thing that showed me a hint of kindness and safety”

Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Mist and Fury 

 

“Desiring another person is perhaps the most risky endeavor of all. As soon as you want somebody – really want him – it is as though you have taken a surgical needle and sutured your happiness to the skin of that person, so that any separation will now cause a lacerating injury.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage 

 

“It’s terrible, once you’ve got a man into your blood!’ she said.”

D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley’s Lover 

 

“For men, I think, love is a thing formed of equal parts lust and astonishment. The astonishment part women understand. The lust part they only think they understand.”

Stephen King, Bag of Bones 

 

“Then stay with me a little longer,’ Madame Olenska said in a low tone, just touching his knee with her plumed fan. It was the lightest touch, but it thrilled him like a caress.”

Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence 

 

“She wouldn’t wish love on anyone. It was the guest you welcomed and then couldn’t be rid of.”

Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows 

 

“He remained heartbroken, which meant one of two things: either his love was pure and true and earthshakingly significant; or he was addicted to feeling forlorn, he liked being heartbroken.”

Jeffrey Eugenides, The Marriage Plot 

 

“I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.”

Charles Dickens, Great Expectations 

 

În concluzie, love is a tough cookie, bookworms!
