Sensitive Love Novels quotations

I loved this smart, funny, big-hearted novel.

As hilarious and wise as early Philip Roth, The Mathematician's Shiva will delight and move you.

Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. Feed it hope. Feed it truth. Feed it with love.

I do know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.

The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple and love without measure.

You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you. -Mr. Darcy

Reconsidering Happiness captures all the contradictory impulses of falling in and out of love-the lust and wanderlust, the contentment and restlessness, the secret loyalties, the hard compromises. Sherrie Flick has written a wise and elegant novel.

I used to go with my parents and loved it, I was in school plays, and I started reading plays before I started reading novels. I'll defend it to the hilt. When theatre is good it is fabulous.

Everyone comes with baggage. Find someone who loves you enough to help you unpack.

Life is like a novel. It's filled with suspense. You have no idea what is going to happen until you turn the page.

I should love to do a novel, about one abnormal character seeing present-day life, very ordinary life, yet arresting through it, abnormality, until at the end the reader sees, and with little reluctance, that he is not abnormal at all, and that the main character might as well be himself.

A short story is a love affair, a novel is a marriage.

A short story is a photograph; a novel is a film.

Love novels quote How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.

I am the outskirts of some non-existent town, the long-winded prologue to an unwritten book. I'm nobody, nobody. I don't know how to feel or think or love. I'm a character in a novel as yet unwritten, hovering in the air and undone before I've even existed, amongst the dreams of someone who never quite managed to breath life into me.

Eat good dinners and drink good wine;

read good novels if you have the leisure and see good plays; fall in love, if there is no reason why you should not fall in love; but do not pore over influenza statistics.


Someone wrote a piece about Henry Green in The Partisan Review that was so intriguing that I got one of his novels, Loving, I believe, which was the first that came to attention in the United States.

Love novels quote I hope to arrive to my death, late, in love and a little drunk.
I hope to arrive to my death, late, in love and a little drunk.

I also wanted to do something that I hadn't really seen in almost any black novels, which was a complex love story in which both people were extremely intelligent and talented and understood a lot of things and were still at odds getting it together.

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides.

Reading honest literature makes you love the world.

Knowledge and understanding are love. Reading educates our feelings and enhances our sympathy. When you read for understanding, you are fundamentally changed. You are a different person at the end of the story or the novel than you were when it began.

Love novels quote If I cut you off chances are you handed me the scissors.
If I cut you off chances are you handed me the scissors.

A seamlessly told and scrupulously detailed history of the Hartsoe clan of Haw County, North Carolina, Love and Lament is that rare novel that brings the gritty, rural past to vivid life. I could very nearly smell the moonshine (the moonshiners too!). Pass a few hours with Mary Bet Hartsoe and family. You won't regret it.


I wrote a novel about Israelis who live their own lives on the slope of a volcano. Near a volcano one still falls in love, one still gets jealous, one still wants a promotion, one still gossips.

I write poems about relationships, love relationships, and I'm not able to do that all the time. I could go two years without writing poems, and then write a dozen. Having a novel to work on, with the intricate puzzle of character and plot to work out, is satisfying for the time there is no poetry.

Love novels quote Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.
Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic.

Life isn't a romance novel. The truth is, the reason romance novels sell so well ---- the reason why everyone loves them ---- is because no one's life is actually like that. Everyone WANTS their life to be like that.

Young ladies may have been crossed in love, and have had their sufferings, their frantic moments of grief and tears, their wakeful nights, and so forth; but it is only in very sentimental novels that people occupy themselves perpetually with that passion, and I believe what are called broken hearts are a very rare article indeed.

I was very influenced by The Magic Mountain.

It's a book that had a huge impact on me. I loved that as a shape for a novel: put a bunch of people in a beautiful place, give them all tuberculosis, make them all stay in a fur sleeping bag for several years and see what happens.


Love novels quote To love a person is to see all of their magic, and to remind them of it when the
To love a person is to see all of their magic, and to remind them of it when they have forgotten.

Well, you know, in any novel you would hope that the hero has someone to push back against, and villains - I find the most interesting villains those who do the right things for the wrong reasons, or the wrong things for the right reasons. Either one is interesting. I love the gray area between right and wrong.

This is what I love about novels - both reading them and writing them.

They jump into the abyss to be with you where you are.

What I love is how pissed off Jane Eyre is.

She's in a rage for the whole novel and the payoff is she gets to marry this blind guy who's toasted his wife in the attic." -Angela Argo "Blue Angel

Love novels quote Sometimes the strongest people are the ones who love beyond all faults, cry behi
Sometimes the strongest people are the ones who love beyond all faults, cry behind closed doors and fight battles that nobody knows about.

I loved him, but love isn't enough. All the fairy tales, the romance novels, the soap operas; they're all lies. Love does not conquer all.

If I were a writer, how I would enjoy being told the novel is dead.

How liberating to work in the margins, outside a central perception. You are the ghoul of literature. Lovely.


Writing a novel is like making love, but it's also like having a tooth pulled.

Pleasure and pain. Sometimes it's like making love while having a tooth pulled.

Love novels quote Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.

Love is more pleasant than marriage for the same reason that novels are more amusing than history.

Film is so much about that intensity of focus that there always needs to be some tension and some forward motion. The novel goes into a series of lovely observations about the world, but you've got to find the story.

I think escapism is very important, certainly in my life.

I love nothing more than escaping into the world of a film or a novel. To be involved in creating that for other people is a privilege.

Love novels quote A strong person loves, forgives, walks away, lets go, tries again, perseveres...
A strong person loves, forgives, walks away, lets go, tries again, perseveres... No matter what life throws at them.

I've never read a young adult novel, though. I'm sure I would love it, but I've never read one.


I love to read. And right now I'm on my last hundred pages of 'The Corrections' by Jonathan Franzen, and I really enjoyed it. His writing is just - he's one of those writers where you just go, 'There are people just meant to be novel writers.'

How mutable are our feelings, and how strange is that clinging love we have of life even in the excess of misery!

I'm a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love - and it being more important and special than anything and everything else.

I was uncomfortable writing fiction. My love was the personal essay, rather than the novel.
