F. Scott Fitzgerald

“A love affair is like a short story–it has a beginning, a middle, and an end. The beginning was easy, the middle might drag, invaded by commonplace, but the end, instead of being decisive and well knit with that element of revelatory surprise as a well-written story should be, it usually dissipated in a succession of messy and humiliating anticlimaxes.”

― F. Scott Fitzgerald

Dejan Stojanovic

“Serious affairs and history are carefully laid snares for the uninformed.”

― Dejan StojanovicThe Sun Watches the Sun

W. Somerset Maugham

“She says it’s really not very flattering to her that the women who fall in love with her husband are so uncommonly second-rate.”

Maggie Stiefvater

“I fell for her in summer, my lovely summer girl,
From summer she is made, my lovely summer girl,
I’d love to spend a winter with my lovely summer girl,
But I’m never warm enough for my lovely summer girl,
It’s summer when she smiles, I’m laughing like a child,
It’s the summer of our lives; we’ll contain it for a while
She holds the heat, the breeze of summer in the circle of her hand
I’d be happy with this summer if it’s all we ever had.”
― Maggie StiefvaterShiver
