I fell in love with him. But I don’t just stay with him by default as if there’s no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.
Isn’t it funny how the memories you cherish before a breakup can become your worst enemies afterwards? The thoughts you loved to think about, the memories you wanted to hold up to the light and view from every angle—it suddenly seems a lot safer to lock them in a box, far from the light of day and throw away the key. It’s not an act of bitterness. It’s an act of self-preservation.
—Ally Condie in First Day
Women won't let me stay single and I won't let me stay married.
The only way to entertain some folks is to listen to them.
A successful marriage is an edifice that must be rebuilt every day.
I like intelligent women. When you go out, it shouldn't be a staring contest.
Whenever you want to marry someone, go have lunch with his ex-wife.
If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love.
