–Nicholas Sparks

There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.
(The Notebook)

Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it can. And just when you think it can’t get any better, it can.
(At First Sight)

Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.
(A Walk to Remember)

You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.

You are, and always have been, my dream.
(The Notebook)

I finally understood what true love meant…love meant that you care for another person’s happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.
(Dear John)

We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.
(The Notebook)

You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most. I treasure each side, just as I have treasured our life together.
(The Notebook)

You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
(The Notebook)

I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.
(The Notebook)

Nothing that’s worthwhile is ever easy. Remember that.
(Message in a Bottle)

I love you more than there are stars in the sky and fish in the sea.

When you’re struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it’s just as hard as what you’re going through.
(Dear John)

And when her lips met mine, I knew that I could live to be a hundred and visit every country in the world, but nothing would ever compare to that single moment when I first kissed the girl of my dreams and knew that my love would last forever.
(Dear John)

You are the answer to every prayer I’ve offered. You are a song, a dream, a whisper, and I don’t know how I could have lived without you for as long as I have.
(The Notebook)

…love, I’ve come to understand is more than three words mumbled before bedtime.

Without suffering, there’d be no compassion.
(A Walk to Remember)

It’s possible to go on, no matter how impossible it seems, and that in time, the grief . . . lessens. It may not go away completely, but after a while it’s not so overwhelming.
(Dear John)

Passion is passion. It’s the excitement between the tedious spaces, and it doesn’t matter where it’s directed…It can be coins or sports or politics or horses or music or faith…the saddest people I’ve ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all.
(Dear John)

The greater the love, the greater the tragedy when it’s over.
(Nights in Rodanthe)

I don’t know that love changes. People change. Circumstances change.

And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.

the reason it hurts so much to seperate is because our souls are connected
(The Notebook)

Our story has three parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. And although this is the way all stories unfold, I still can’t believe that ours didn’t go on forever.
(Dear John)

We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure. Silence is holy. It draws people together because only those who are comfortable with each other can sit without speaking. This is the great paradox.
(The Notebook)

In times of grief and sorrow I will hold you and rock you and take your grief and make it my own. When you cry I cry and when you hurt I hurt. And together we will try to hold back the floods to tears and despair and make it through the potholed street of life
(The Notebook)

Dreams are always crushing when they don’t come true. But it’s the simple dreams that are often the most painful because they seem so personal, so reasonable, so attainable. You’re always close enough to touch, but never quite close enough to hold and it’s enough to break your heart.
(Three Weeks with My Brother)

Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Loves is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It dose not take offense and is not resentful. Love take no pleasure in others people’s sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.
(A Walk to Remember)

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever

Noah: “You wanna dance with me?”
Allie: “Sure. Now?”
Noah: “Mmm Hmm”
Allie: “You’re not supposed to dance in the street.”
Noah: “You are supposed to dance in the street.”
Allie: “Yeah, but we don’t have any music.”
Noah: “Well, we’ll make some… Bum bum bum bum bum bum…”
Allie: “You’re a terrible singer.”
Noah: “I know.”
Allie: “And I like this song.”
(The Notebook)

An ordinary beginning, something that would have been forgotten had it been anyone but her. But as he shook her hand and met those striking emerald eyes, he knew before he’d taken his next breath that she was the one he could spend the rest of his life looking for but never find again. She seemed that good, that perfect, while a summer wind blew through the trees.(The Notebook)

“You really love her don’t you,” she said.
“With all my heart.”
She looked as sad as I’d ever seen her.
“What’s your heart telling you to do?”
“I don’t know.”
“Maybe”, she said gently, “You’re trying to hard to hear it.”

‘I don’t want to lose you.’ His voice almost a whisper. Seeing his haggard expression, she took his hand and squeezed it, then reluctantly let it go. She could feel the tears again, and she fought them back. ‘But you don’t want to keep me, either, do you?’ To that, he had no response.
(The Rescue)

I’d love to, she finally said,”on one condition.”
I steadied myself, hoping it wasn’t something too awful.
“Yes?”
“You have to promise that you won’t fall in love with me.”
I knew she was kidding me by the way she laughed, and I couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief.
Sometimes, I had to admit, Jamie had a pretty good sense of humor.
I smiled and gave her my word.

So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, for ever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What’s it look like? If it’s with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that’s what you really wanted. But don’t you take the easy way out.
(The Notebook)

While I sleep, I dream of you, and when I wake, I long to hold you in my arms. If anything, our time apart has only made me more certain that I want to spend my nights by your side, and my days with your heart.
(Nights in Rodanthe)

If conversation was the lyrics, laughter was the music, making time spent together a melody that could be replayed over and over without getting stale.

Without you in my arms, I feel an emptiness in my soul. I find myself searching the crowds for your face – I know it’s an impossibility, but I cannot help myself.
(Message in a Bottle)

I held her close to me with my eyes closed, wondering if anything in my life had ever been this perfect and knowing at the same time that it hadn’t. I was in love, and the feeling was even more wonderful than I ever imagined it could be.
(A Walk to Remember)

They didn’t agree on much. In fact, they didn’t agree on anything. They fought all the time and challenged each other ever day. But despite their differences, they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.
(The Notebook)

You always have a choice. It’s just that some people make the wrong one.
(The Guardian)

And when her lips meet mine, I feel a strange tingling I have never felt before…and suddenly a miracle…and I discover a forgotten paradise, unchanged all this time, ageless like the stars. I feel the warmth of her body, and…I allow myself to slip away. I close my eyes and become a mighty ship in churning waters, strong and fearless, and she is my sails.
(The Notebook)

Yes… it wasn’t over, it still isn’t over.

And for the briefest instant, it almost feels like we’re together again.
(Dear John)

If you like her, if she makes you happy, and if you feel like you know her—then don’t let her go.
(Message in a Bottle)

People want pretty much the same things: They wanted to be happy. Most young people seemed to think that those things lay somewhere in the future, while most older people believed they lay in the past.
(Nights in Rodanthe)

It has to get ugly before it gets pretty!

The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls were connected. Maybe they always have and will be. Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we’ve found each other. And maybe each time, we’ve been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.
When i look at you, i see your charm and your gentleness and know they have grown stronger with every life you have lived. And i know i have spent every life before this one searching for you. not someone like you, but you, for your soul and mine must always come together. And then, for some reason neither of us understands we were forced to say goodbye.
I would love to tell you that everything will work out for us, And i promise to do all i can to make sure it does. But if we never meet again and this is truly goodbye, I know we will see each other again in another life. We will find each other again and maybe the stars will have changed, and we will not only love each other in that time but for all the times we had before.
(The Notebook)

It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. And so you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.

And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.

It wasn’t that long, & it certainly wasn’t the kind of kiss you see in movies these days, but it was wonderful in its own way, & all I can remember about the moment is that when our lips first touched, I knew the memory would last forever.
(A Walk to Remember)

When I lose my ground I can always remember: this is my reason; You are my reason to stay.

He was so different from her, yet in his presence she felt the possibility of another kind of life, a life she had never imagined could be hers. A life without the rigid limitations others had always set for her.
Experience had taught me that even the most precious memories fade with the passage of time.
(The Wedding)

You can’t live your life for other people. You’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
(The Notebook)

When I sleep, I dream of you, and when I wake, I long to hold you in my arms. If anything, our time apart has only made me more certain that I want to spend my nights by your side, and my days with your heart.

It was almost as if part of you had come with me.

In the short time we spent together, we had what most people can only dream about, and I’m counting the days until i can see you again. never forget how much i love you.

Saying good-bye to you today is the hardest thing I’ll ever have to do, and when I get back, I can honestly swear that I’ll never do it again. I love you now for what we’ve already shared, and I love you now in anticipation for all that’s to come. You are the best thing that ever happened to me. I miss you already, but I’m sure in my heart that you’ll be with me always. In the few days I spent with you, you became my dream.

Proximity bred familiarity, and familiarity bred comfort.
(The Lucky One)

I am lost without you. I am souless, a drifter without a home, a solitary bird in a flight to nowhere. I am all these things and I am nothing at all. This, my darling, is my life without you. I long for you to show me how to live again.
(Message in a Bottle)

I am here to love you, to hold you in my arms, to protect you. I am here to learn from you and to receive your love in return. I am here because there is no other place to be.

That he’ll never let you down. That boy’s got a heart the size of Kentucky, and he loves you. That’s important. Take it from someone who knows. My mom used to tell me that whatever you do, marry someone who loves you more than you love him.

Before he met you, he was trying to find something. After you came along, he’d already found it.

In the end, it’s worked out because we both want it to. As long as you two have that, you’ll be able to make it through anything. But love, I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.

In the end, it’s worked out because we both want it to. As long as you two have that, you’ll be able to make it through anything.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that you are there, in everything I am, in everything I’ve ever done, and looking back, I know that I should have told you know much you’ve always meant to me.
(The Wedding)

Poetry, she thought, wasn’t written to be analyzed; it was meant to inspire without reason, to touch without understanding
(The Notebook)
