Abhinav Sakalle


«You asked me to be an open book. As I've already told you, I am. Anything you need to know about me can be found. Don't confuse me, a paperback, with a book on tape.»

«You put me through hell. On purpose. Made me suffer. And there’s no end in sight. I don’t know what the fuck you’re doing, ace, but this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde shit ain’t cutting it with me.»

Sylvia Day


«There is that, and there is also the Irreconcilable Differences line. It seems so catchall, so vague. You could say that about anyone, any man and woman at all. Jesus and Mary Magdalene: "Irreconcilable Differences." JFK and Jackie, anyone at all. It´s built into the man-woman thing. What kind of paltry reason is that? "Insanity" is another box to be checked on the divorce petition, the only alternative to "Irreconcilable Differences." I would like to check it.»

Suzanne Finnamore


«How could you do that to me?" I repeat. I don´t have to itemize. He knows what I speak of.»

«I remember one desolate Sunday night, wondering: Is this how I´m going to spend the rest of my life? Marrid to someone who is perpetually distracted and somewhat wistful, as though a marvelous party is going on in the next room, which but for me he could be attending?»

Suzanne Finnamore


«Foolishly; 'I am capable to kill love once again' for it is my longing that is unusual as the Black Widow.»

Evelyn Leilou Colon


«Naturally, I do blame Françoise. I blame her for having N in the first place. She was young, she was beautiful, she was married to a doctor, and she was intelligent. She could have abstained from producing her first son. It was wrong on a variety of levels.»

Suzanne Finnamore

«Bittersweet? No, just bitter, the taste of your tongue.»

Coco J. Ginger


«Everything is all right,»

Elizabeth Brooks


«They feel life is for the taking, and that everyone deserves happiness no matter what the cost. I must remember these tricks if I ever decide to have my soul surgically removed.»

Suzanne Finnamore


«So many events and moments that seemed insignificant add up. I remember how for the last Valentine´s Day, N gave flowers but no card. In restaurants, he looked off into the middle distance while my hand would creep across the table to hold his. He would always let go first. I realize I can´t remember his last spontaneous gesture of affection.»

Suzanne Finnamore


«Surprises, I feel now, are primarily a form of violence.»

Suzanne Finnamore

Jonathan Harnisch


«To keep myself from harming or calling N and to stave off the rage and despair, I focus on my extraordinary son, drink midrange Chardonnay every night after he is asleep, and make a barrage of late-night mail-order retail purchases placed from the couch. The couch has officially become my second battle station. I am angry and I have credit And I´m all blackened inside; I should wear a pointy witch hat around Larkspur as I go to the bank and drop A off at day care. It would be more honest.»

Suzanne Finnamore


«I´m just not sending out the right vibe lately. Perhaps the fact that I wear stained sweatpants and free T-shirts is holding me back. I just can´t seem to get back into the intelligent-slut-for-hire outfits that lure men; even shoes with laces evade me. Plus my hair is Fran Lebowitz-esque. I think my eyes are getting closer together. I don´t know.»

Suzanne Finnamore


«Everything else has vanished, so you take them now. Maybe if you're the one keeping them, I'll be the one feeling better.»

Daniel Handler


«One of the best times for figuring out who you are & what you really want out of life? Right after a break-up.»

Mandy Hale


«â€¦..she needed him to know she did not care. She was spirited, tenacious, and full of contempt for him.»

Coco J. Ginger


«Two words. Three vowels. Four constenants. Seven letters. It can either cut you open to the core and leave you in ungodly pain or it can free your soul and lift a tremendous weight off you shoulders. The phrase is: It's over.»
