1. “(Love is a verb. It moves.)” Ali, The Kissing Lessons - "Note to self"

  2. “Sometimes, I struggle with telling you the things I want to tell you. I want to stick my neck out and make you feel as special as you make me feel. So, when the moment strikes, I let it go. I probably say too much. I probably act like some gushy girl. It’s embarrassing. And that’s why this entry is risky. Because I’m gonna gush in front of the whole damn Internet. And you’re gonna smirk.” "it's you" - Alma

  3. “‘absent minded’ means my mind is way too crowded to handle petty details.” Kelly Diels

  4. “I am proud of my sisters-–even if, most days, I feel like the tomboy scratching her legs at the beauty parlor. I will try harder to be my best self, and I will try to support you on your journey too. We are all so amazing. It’s about time we stop tearing each other down. Alma, "Sisterhood?"

  5. “love is about teaching each other the language of our individual hearts. It’s as much about deciphering hieroglyphics and hand gestures as it is about hearts and flowers. When you finally speak the same language, you find inspiration. Love wants to be inspired. It wants to skedaddle off in fifty different directions like rogue sparklers in December. It wants to learn your punctuation and wait for a pause. It isn’t threatened by edges of tone or what isn’t said.” i choose you

  6. “If (our) emo-baggage isn’t checked at the curb and handled appropriately – we’ll never be able to see who’s really shining in front of us because we’re too busy tossing our shit at them for whatever twisted and unresolved reasons we hold on to. That’s the dose of Kryptonite it takes to destroy a relationship. How do we work with this – in ourselves and our other – when this arises? ” Ali - "Kryptonite" @ The Kissing Lessons

  7. “The world’s been broken into pieces, and it’s everybody’s job to put them back together again.” Rachel Cohn - Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

  8. “I love you without knowing how or when or from where.
    I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
    So I love you because I know no other way.” Pablo Neruda - Sonnet XVII
