relationship

Isn’t it strange that I know you’d risk your life to save mine, but I don’t even know what your favorite color is?

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

The sandwich he made was bologna and cheese, his favorite. All the sandwiches he made were his favorites; that was one of the advantages of being single.

Stephen King, Salem’s Lot

She was so beautiful, like someone who you will never meet, but always dream of meeting, like someone who is too good for you.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

I finally made friends with my father when I entered my twenties. We had so little in common when I was a boy, and I am certain I had been a disappointment to him. He did not ask for a child with a book, off in its own world. He wanted a son who did what he had done; swam and boxed and played rugby, and drove cars at speed with abandon and joy, but that was not what he wound up with.

Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Have you set up a moral dilemma you don’t know how to solve? Is the protagonist sexually attracted to a woman who is much too young for him, shall we say? Need a quick fix? Easiest thing in the world. ‘When the story starts going sour, bring on the man with the gun.’ Raymond Chandler said that, or something like it – close enough for government work, kemo sabe.

Stephen King, Bag of Bones

When you’re as charming and physically attractive as myself, it’s easy enough to win over people you meet. But getting strangers to love you… now, that’s the trick.

John Green, The Fault In Our Stars

If you love two people at the same time, choose the second. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fallen for the second.

Johnny Depp

I really think that all relationships that are beautiful and lasting are a struggle. I think when things are too easy, it’s harder to appreciate the beauty, and it’s the same thing with the guitar. I mean, they’re also this inanimate object that I take on stage. It’s just a tool in one sense, but I’m trying to make friends with it, and I struggle with it. I really need to sort of identify with it as a sort of personality at the same time.

Jack White

A man’s gotta be pretty committed to a woman to agree to raise another man’s child.

Keith Mars, Veronica Mars

The hero is the one that stays and the villain is the one that splits.
