For all the novels that reflect the heartache and tragedies in life.
“Miriam wished for so much in those final moments. Yet as she closed her eyes, it was not regret any longer but a sensation of abundant peace that washed over her. She thought of her entry into this world, the harami child of a lowly villager, an unintended thing, a pitiable, regrettable accident. A weed. And yet she was leaving the world as a woman who had loved and been loved back. She was leaving it as a friend, a companion, a guardian. A mother. A person of consequence at last. No. It was not so bad, Miriam thought, that she should die this way. Not so bad. This was a legitimate end to a life of illegitimate belongings.”
“Never in her life – she could swear it from the bottom of her soul – had she ever intended to do wrong; yet these hard judgments had come. Whatever her sins, they were not sins of intention, but of inadvertence, and why should she have been punished so persistently?”
“Love. The reason I dislike that word is that it means too much for me, far more than you can understand." — Anna Karenina
Anna Karenina, Leo Tolstoy
“He thought back on his family with deep emotion and love. His conviction that he would have to disappear was, if possible, even firmer than his sister's. He remained in this state of empty and peaceful reflection until the tower clock struck three in the morning. He still saw that outside the window everything was beginning to grow light. Then, without his consent, his head sank down to the floor, and from his nostrils streamed his last weak breath.”
“Grief is different. Grief has no distance. Grief comes in waves, paroxysms, sudden apprehensions that weaken the knees and blind the eyes and obliterate the dailiness of life.” — Joan Didion
"There is no use in loving things if you have to be torn from them, is there? And it's so hard to keep from loving things, isn't it? " — Anne Shirley
Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery
“You loved me-then what right had you to leave me? What right-answer me-for the poor fancy you felt for Linton? Because misery and degradation, and death, and nothing that God or Satan could inflict would have parted us, you, of your own will, did it. I have not broken your heart- you have broken it; and in breaking it, you have broken mine." — Heathcliff
Wuthering Heights, Emily Jane Brontë
"She cast one more lingering, half-fainting glance at the prince, and then threw herself from the ship into the sea, and thought her body was dissolving into foam.”
"I did fail, say what you will, for Jo wouldn't love me." — Laurie Laurence
Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
"Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning

— So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." — Nick Carraway
The Great Gatsby, Francis Scott Fitzgerald
"I think you are wrong to want a heart. It makes people unhappy. If only you knew it. You are in luck not to have a heart."
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Lyman Frank Baum
“If I said I was madly in love with you you'd know I was lying.” — Scarlett O'Hara
Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell
