Flashcards in Before Trilogy Deck (1):

“I think I can really fall in love when I know everything about someone – the way he’s going to part his hair, which shirt he’s going to wear that day, knowing the exact story he’d tell in a given situation. I’m sure that’s when I know I’m really in love.”

“If there’s any kind of magic in this world…it must be in the attempt of understanding someone.”

“I guess when you’re young, you just believe there’ll be many people with whom you’ll connect with. Later in life, you realize it only happens a few times.”

“If you want true love, then this is it. This is real life. It’s not perfect, but it’s real.”

“I always feel this pressure of being a strong and independent icon of womanhood, and without making it look my whole life is revolving around some guy. But loving someone, and being loved means so much to me. We always make fun of it and stuff. But isn't everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more?”

"I think if I just could accept the fact that my life is supposed to be difficult. Then I'll just be glad when something nice happens."

"Life is supposed to be hard. If we didn't suffer, we wouldn't learn anything."

“I believe if there's any kind of God it wouldn't be in any of us, not you or me but just this little space in between. If there's any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something. I know, it's almost impossible to succeed but who cares really? The answer must be in the attempt.”

"Even being alone it's better than sitting next to your lover and feeling lonely."

“I think I’m always so much more happy with books and movies and stuff. I think I get more excited about well-done representations of life than life itself."

"You know what's the worst thing about somebody breaking up with you? It's when you remember how little you thought about the people you broke up with and you realise that is how little they're thinking of you."

"I see love as this escape for two people who don't know how to be alone. If you think about it, there is nothing more selfish."

"Romantic projections are not based on any kind of reality"

"Why does everyone think conflict is so bad? There's a lot of good things coming out of conflict."
