David Levithan Motivational QUotations:

  • “It was a mistake," you said. But the cruel thing was, it felt like the mistake was mine, for trusting you.”

  •  “I am constantly torn between killing myself and killing everyone around me.”

  •  “I wake up thinking of yesterday. The joy is in remembering; the pain is in knowing it was yesterday.”

  •  “If there's one thing I've learned, it's this: We all want everything to be okay. We don't even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.”

  •  “This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible. And when it’s just the two of you, alone in a room, you can pretend that this is how it is, this is how it will be.”

  •  “We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust.”

  • “That's what the voices in your head are for, to get you through the silent parts.”

  •  “i do not say 'good-bye.' i believe that's one of the bullshittiest words ever invented. it's not like you're given the choice to say 'bad-bye' or 'awful-bye' or 'couldn't-care-less-about-you-bye.' every time you leave, it's supposed to be a good one.  well, i don't believe in that.  i believe against that.”

David Levithan

  •  “There will always be more questions. Every answer leads to more questions. The only way to survive is to let some of them go.”
  •  “It would be too easy to say that I feel invisible. Instead, I feel painfully visible, and entirely ignored.”

  •  “this is why we call people exes, I guess - because the paths that cross in the middle end up separating at the end. it's too easy to see an X as a cross-out. it's not, because there's no way to cross out something like that. the X is a diagram of two paths.”

  •  “i have a friend request from some stranger on facebook and i delete it without looking at the profile because that doesn't seem natural. 'cause friendship should not be as easy as that. it's like people believe all you need to do is like the same bands in order to be soulmates. or books. omg... U like the outsiders 2... it's like we're the same person! no we're not.  it's like we have the same english teacher. there's a difference.”

  • “Kindness connects to who you are, while niceness connects to how you want to be seen.”

  • “Trying to write about love is ultimately like trying to have a dictionary represent life. No matter how many words there are, there will never be enough.”

  • “i will admit there's a certain degree of giving a fuck that goes into not giving a fuck. by saying you don't care if the world falls apart, in some small way you're saying you want it to stay together, on your terms.”

  •  “maybe tonight you're scared of falling, and maybe there's somebody here or somewhere else you're thinking about, worrying over, fretting over, trying to figure out if you want to fall, or how and when you're gonna land, and i gotta tell you, friends, to stop thinking about the landing, because it's all about falling.”

  •  “It's one thing to fall in love. It's another to feel someone else fall in love with you, and to feel a responsibility toward that love.”

    David Levithan

  •  “It scares me how hard it is to remember life before you. I can't even make the comparisons anymore, because my memories of that time have all the depth of a photograph. It seems foolish to play games of better and worse. It's simply a matter of is and is no longer.”

  •  “The moment you fall in love feels like it has centuries behind it, generations - all of them rearranging themselves so this precise, remarkable intersection could happen. In your heart, in your bones, no matter how silly you know it is, you feel that everything has been leading to this, all the secret arrows were pointing here, the universe and time itself crafted this long ago, and you are just now realizing it, you are just now arriving at the place you were always meant to be.”

  •  “when things break, it's not the actual breaking that prevents them from getting back together again. it's because a little piece gets lost -- the two remaining ends couldn't fit together even if they wanted to. the whole shape has changed.”

  •  “Things that matter are not easy. Feelings of happiness are easy. Happiness is not. Flirting is easy. Love is not. Saying you’re friends is easy. Being friends is not.”

  •  “Even when I detach, I care. You can be separate from a thing and still care about it. If I wanted to detach completely, I would move my body away. I would stop the conversation midsentence. I would leave the bed. Instead, I hover over it for a second. I glance off in another direction. But I always glance back at you.”

  •  “It doesn't have to be on Valentine's Day. It doesn't have to be by the time you turn eighteen or thirty-three or fifty-nine. It doesn't have to conform to whatever is usual. It doesn't have to be kismet at once, or rhapsody by the third date.

  •  “If you stare at the center of the universe, there is coldness there. A  blankness. Ultimately, the universe doesn't care about us. Time doesn't care about us. That's why we have to care about each other.”

  •  “People are rarely as attractive in reality as they are in the eyes of the people who are in love with them. Which is, I suppose, as it should be.”

  • "There are things I miss," you said. "But if I didn't have you, I'd miss more.”

  •  “Remember that at any given moment there are a thousand things you can love.”

  •  “Answerless questions can destroy you. Move on.”

  •  “Because when something happens, she's the person I want to tell. The most basic indicator of love.”

  •  “I never felt the urge to jump off a bridge, but there are times I have wanted to jump out of my life, out of my skin.”

  •  “I was horribly bookish, to the point of coming right out and saying it, which I knew was not socially acceptable. I particularly loved the adjective bookish, which I found other people used about as often as ramrod or chum or teetotaler.”

  •  “Luckily, I always travel with a book, just in case I have to wait on line for Santa, or some such inconvenience.”

  •   “I get it. The things you hope for the most are the things that destroy you in the end.”

  •  “Love and I once had a great relationship, but I fear we've broken up. It cheated on me, wrecked my heart, and then went on to date other people. A lot of other people. And I can't stand to watch it, since love's going to cheat on them too.”

  •  “The mistake is thinking that there can be an antidote to the uncertainty.”

  •  “I was attempting to write the story of my life. It wasn't so much about plot. It was much more about character.”

  • There are times when I doubt everything. When I regret everything you've taken from me, everything I've given you, and the waste of all the time I've spent on us.”

  •  “I wanted to talk to someone. But who? It’s moments like this, when you need someone the most, that your world seems smallest.”

  •  “She is so lost in her sadness that she has no idea how visible it is.”

  •  “When first love ends, most people eventually know there will be more to come. They are not through with love. Love is not through with them. It will never be the same as the first, but it will be better in different ways.”

  •  “An unarticulated crush is very different from an unrequited one, because at least with an unrequited crush you know what the hell you're doing, even if the other person isn't doing it back. An unarticulated crush is harder to grapple with, because it's a crush that you haven't even admitted to yourself. The romantic forces are all there -- you want to see him, you always notice him, you treat every word from him as if it weighs more than anyone else's. But you don't know why. You don't know that you're doing it. You'd follow him to the end of the earth without ever admitting that your feet were moving.”

  •  “You want meaning? Well, the meanings are out there. We're just so damn good at reading them wrong.”

  •  “I am a drifter, and as lonely as that can be, it is also remarkably freeing. I will never define myself in terms of anyone else. I will never feel the pressure of peers or the burden of parental expectation. I can view everyone as pieces of a whole, and focus on the whole, not the pieces. I have learned to observe, far better than most people observe. I am not blinded by the past or motivated by the future. I focus on the present because that is where I am destined to live.”

  •  “She's cinematic and I'm a fucking sitcom.”

  •  “You like him because he's a lost boy. Believe me, I've seen it happen before. But do you know what happens to girls who love lost boys? They become lost themselves. Without fail.”  

  • “I close my eyes. And i scream. If my whole world is crashing down around me, then I am going to make the sound of the crashing. I want to scream until all my bones break.”

  • Love is one kind of abstraction. And then there are those nights when I sleep alone, when I curl into a pillow that isn't you, when I hear the tiptoe sounds that aren't yours. It's not as if I can conjure you up completely. I must embrace the idea of you instead.”

  •  “Here’s what I know about the realm of possibility— it is always expanding, it is never what you think it is. Everything around us was once deemed impossible. From the airplane overhead to the phones in our pockets to the choir girl putting her arm around the metalhead. As hard as it is for us to see sometimes, we all exist within the realm of possibility. Most of the limits are of our own world’s devising. And yet, every day we each do so many things that were once impossible to us. ”

  •  “The key to a successful relationship isn’t just in the words, it’s in the choice of punctuation. When you’re in love with someone, a well-placed question mark can be the difference between bliss and disaster, and a deeply respected period or a cleverly inserted ellipsis can prevent all kinds of exclamations.”

  •  “It's as if when you love someone, they become your reason.”

  •  “I want my own books to have their own shelves," you said, and that's how I knew it would be okay to live together.”

  •  “The clock always ticks. There are times you don't hear it, and there are times that you do.”
