“Every atom of your flesh is as dear to me as my own: in pain and sickness it would still be dear.”
To anyone who hasn’t read or seen “The Notebook”, take the advice of a smart, smart man who will be a god in any woman’s eyes.
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
“I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.”
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
“To love or have loved, that is enough. Ask nothing further. There is no other pearl to be found in the dark folds of life.”
