    Anna Reztsovahas quoted3 years ago
    Just be quiet, say nothing, and if you can’t say “yes,” don’t say “no,” say “later.” Is this why people say “maybe” when they mean “yes,” but hope you’ll think it’s “no” when all they really mean is, Please, just ask me once more, and once more after that?

    In your place, if there is pain, nurse it, and if there is a flame, don’t snuff it out, don’t be brutal with it. Withdrawal can be a terrible thing when it keeps us awake at night, and watching others forget us sooner than we’d want to be forgotten is no better. We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything—what a waste!”
    Paige Gardnerhas quoted3 years ago
    as you did back then, look me in the face, hold my gaze, and call me by your name.
    Андрей Путаревhas quoted3 years ago
    I stopped for a second. If you remember everything, I wanted to say, and if you are really like me, then before you leave tomorrow, or when you’re just ready to shut the door of the taxi and have already said goodbye to everyone else and there’s not a thing left to say in this life, then, just this once, turn to me, even in jest, or as an afterthought, which would have meant everything to me when we were together, and, as you did back then, look me in the face, hold my gaze, and call me by your name.
    Graciela Chapahas quoted3 years ago
    I was giving him every chance to put two and two together and come up with a number bigger than infinity.

    Let summer never end, let him never go away, let the music on perpetual replay play forever, I’m asking for very little, and I swear I’ll ask for nothing more.
    Anastasiya Loginovahas quoted3 years ago
    “Later!” The word, the voice, the attitude.
    Gaelhas quoted4 years ago
    so that the very person who causes our torment by daybreak is the same who’ll relieve it at night?

    Time makes us sentimental. Perhaps, in the end, it is because of time that we suffer.
    Sofia Kurtzhas quoted2 years ago
    I hated it once I was there and loved it as soon as I left.
    Carlo Rabehas quoted2 years ago
    We are not written for one instrument alone; I am not, neither are you.
    bookmatey13has quoted4 years ago
    How is it that some people go through hell trying to get close to you, while you haven’t the haziest notion and don’t even give them a thought when two weeks go by and you haven’t so much as exchanged a single word between you
    Monika Rizkahas quoted3 years ago
    all I really wanted was skin, just skin.
    ᴺᴼᴵᴿhas quoted2 years ago
    I’d never heard anyone use “later” to say goodbye before.

    Perhaps we were friends first and lovers second.
    Kinbarii Mishimahas quotedlast year
    “If you don’t tell me, I’ll imagine all sorts of things—and I’ll just feel terrible.”

    Amor ch’a null’amato amar perdona. Love, which exempts no one who’s loved from loving,
    Hekiahas quoted2 years ago
    What did one do around here?

    Nothing. Wait for summer to end.

    What did one do in the winter, then?

    I smiled at the answer I was about to give. He got the gist and said, “Don’t tell me: wait for summer to come, right?”

    Give me a blindfold, hold my hand, and don’t ask me to think—will you do that for me?
