“It amazes me that people think their soul mate is going to show up in their life at this predestined time and be this flawless person.
A true soul mate is a mirror of yourself, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back,
The person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
But they have the one thing you don’t have:
Which is the introspection to help you become great.”
“People eventually get sick of waiting.
Take a chance on someone,
And by the art of commitment become soul mates, which takes a lifetime to perfect.”
― Criss Jami, Venus in Arms
“I love you, he thought, looking at her.
I love every part of you, every thought and word…the entire complex, fascinating bundle of all the things you are.
I want you with ten different kinds of need at once.
I love all the seasons of you, the way you are now, the thought of how much more beautiful you’ll be in the decades to come.
I love you for being the answer to every question my heart could ask.
And it seemed so easy, once he capitulated. It seemed natural and right.
And there was no more holding back.
He would take her.
And he would give her everything he had, every part of his soul, even the broken pieces.”
“I don’t know what circumstances occurred in your life for you to build such a strong brick wall around your heart,
but I do intend to tear it down.”
― Tina Carreiro, Power of the Moon
“It suddenly made sense.
Only twice in his life had he felt this inexplicable, almost mystical attraction to a woman.
He’d thought it remarkable, to have found two, when in his heart he’d always believed there was only one perfect woman out there for him.”
― Julia Quinn, An Offer From a Gentleman
“Maybe we weren’t soul mates, But we fell in love anyway.
Drawn together like the moon pulls the tides,
And you can’t control that.
We fell in love,
And every single moment after that was so amazing and special.”
