Copy
and he suddenly knew... and he suddenly knew that if she killed herself, he would die. Maybe not immediately, maybe not with the same blinding rush of pain, but it would happen. You couldn't live for very long without a heart.

Copy
I love you," he... I love you," he whispered, and that was the moment he knew what he was going to do. When you loved someone, you put their needs before your own. No matter how inconceivable those needs were; no matter how fucked up; no matter how much it made you feel like you were ripping yourself into pieces. 
Copy
I think many of... I think many of my books, including 'Handle with Care,' including 'My Sister's Keeper,' circle back to how far are we willing to go for the people we love? I think love changes the way we think. It's the thing that takes you out of what your normal set of beliefs would be.
Copy

Copy
I, um, I have... I, um, I have this problem. I broke up with my boyfriend, you see. And I'm pretty upset about it, so I wanted to talk to my best friend. [...] The thing is, they're both you. 
Copy
If you gave someone... If you gave someone your heart and they died, did they take it with them? Did you spend the rest of forever with a hole inside you that couldn't be filled? 
Copy
I'm lonely. Why do... I'm lonely. Why do you think I had to learn to act so independent? I also get mad too quickly, and I hog the covers, and my second toe is longer than my big one. My hair has it's own zip code. Plus, I get certifiably crazy when I've got PMS. You don't love someone because they're perfect. You love them in spite of the fact that they're not. 
Copy
My mother… she is... My mother… she is beautiful, softened at the edges and tempered with a spine of steel. I want to grow old and be like her.
Copy
The best place to... The best place to cry is on a mother's arms.
Copy
The damage was permanent;... The damage was permanent; there would always be scars. But even the angriest scars faded over time until it was difficult to see them written on the skin at all, and the only thing that remained was the memory of how painful it had been. 
Copy
The music we listen... The music we listen to may not define who we are. But it’s a good start.
Copy
There are two ways... There are two ways to be happy: improve your reality, or lower your expectations.
Copy
When you love someone... When you love someone you let them take care of you. 
Copy
When you love someone,... When you love someone, you say their name different. Like it's safe inside your mouth. 
Copy
You don't love someone... You don't love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not. 
Copy
You know it's never... You know it's never fifty-fifty in a marriage. It's always seventy-thirty, or sixty-forty. Someone falls in love first. Someone puts someone else up on a pedestal. Someone works very hard to keep things rolling smoothly; someone else sails along for the ride.
