"I don’t cheat. Okay, sometimes I cheat at cards, but just for the hell of it. And sometimes I lie when it’s expedient. Or when a lie’s just more fun than the truth. I can be mean when it suits me, which is a lot. But I don’t kick a man when he’s down, unless I’m the one who put him down in the first place. I don’t put him down unless he deserves it. And I don’t break my word when I give it. So I’ll give you my word, I won’t cheat on you."
--Nora Roberts, 'Northern Lights
"She’d done nothing in her life to deserve him. And somehow that made it all that much more wonderful."

No one looks back to the past and sees the nights that they got plenty of sleep.
Good looking people should never open their own drink or light their own cigarette.
Hemingway wrote, “This world is a good place, and it is worth fighting for.” I believe in the second part.
