Of the seven deadly sins of lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride, you have five, while of the seven Heavenly virtues of chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness and humility, I possess six.

“Have you ever BEEN on a first date before?” she asked.
I turned to look at you as you looked back at me. With tears long gone, life went on and the memories will always be.
My head is full of voices. But I can’t sleep because I don’t remember the sound of yours anymore.
I heard her when she said, “I just want you to be happy, so I’m leaving you,” but I couldn’t understand it.
I thought I already was.
Anger and shame welled up inside Henry’s addled brain as he waited for the first of his accusers to start listing the awful things he’d done to them.

You promised that you would never end the it by choice. You chose.
The world is beautiful with tears in my eyes. What could it be without?
I wasn’t lying when I told him I didn’t dance with another man. But he didn’t ask me if I kissed one.
One afternoon, she went to the store and unexpectedly bought almost 12 months of memories. They weren’t on sale and definitely can’t be returned.

She told me she’d grown tired of riding along on my ego trip. So, I asked her for gas money and threw her out.

A part of Allison – however small – wished she had the capacity to love him right now while he was here with her to be loved, but she was well aware that her infatuation with all things past meant she would come to love him several years from now, by which time he would be completely out of reach.
“I feel like I’ve been looking for something that’s been missing in my life, but how am I supposed to find it when I don’t even know what it is?” Danny asked.
“I’m right here!” Bianca shouted in her mind and imagined pulling him close for a kiss, but she bit her tongue so hard it hurt and simply said, “I’m sure you’ll find it – whatever it is – when it’s meant to be.”
