Emily Giffin Quote: “It’s always a good feeling when you can produce just the right one-liner to prove your point so tidily.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Life was good then, I though, as I started to cry. Not so much because I missed the good times, although I did. It was more that I knew I was turning into one of those girls who, upon looking at high school photos, feels wistful.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “But I cherished our filterless relationship and considered it the truest measure of a best friend, greater than pure affection.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I feel freer with Dex than I ever did single, I feel more myself with him than without maybe true love does that.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Being around people didn’t make me uneasy, I just preferred to be alone most of the time.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Because sometimes I have the feeling that everyone thinks that everyone else is living a fairy tale. Especially in the South. People fake things so much. Put on a happy face and show off your perfect life.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “So I guess what I’m trying to say is that life is fast. And it keeps speeding up. Sometimes I lose track of the season – or even the year. And we just have to make the best of it all. Our choices. Our fleeting moments together.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I have a fleeting fantasy of telling her that procreation isn’t a contest, any more than SAT scores and making the cheerleading squad and getting into a good college and all the other things, both big and small, that she turned into a contest when Janie and I were young, going all the way back to whose baby teeth came in first, according to my mother.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Love made things feel precarious, and, when you got right down to it, everything in life was tenuous and fleeting and ultimately tragic.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I think of how life takes unexpected twists and turns, sometimes through sheer happenstance – like running into Leo on the street. Sometimes through calculated decisions – like Margot’s. Or mine, tonight, when I left Leo. In the end, it can all be called fate, but to me, it is more a matter of faith.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “But I cherished our filterless relationship and considered it the truest measure of a best friend, greater than pure affection. Who was the person you trusted enough to be your most transparent self with, in both good times and bad?”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I just think that I screwed up what could have turned into a more significant relationship, or at least a lasting friendship.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Deep down, I am also repenting. I am proving my love. I am renewing my vows. I am safeguarding my marriage. I am choosing Andy.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “What if two people want to be your partner, then what?”
Emily Giffin Quote: “It’s a metaphor for life. If sports don’t matter, then life doesn’t matter.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “The surprise element of her betrayal was what burned me the most. The fact that I never saw it coming.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “There is emotion, and then there is what you do about it.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I smile at my husband’s unwavering thoughtfulness. Sometimes he really does seem too good to be true.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “After all, there is nothing like a mother telling you that you’re making a bad decision to convince you that what you are doing is the absolute best course of action.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I feel more myself with him than without. Maybe true love does that.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It’s amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn’t even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn’t even know had a particular smell. I wonder what will someday bring back Dex and our few months together. Maybe the sound of Dido’s voice. Maybe the scent of the Aveda shampoo I’ve been using all summer.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Much later, she would go back and read the entry, and think to herself that memories were that way, too. When you wanted to forget, everything would return in raw, brutal focus. When you wanted to remember, the details would slip away like a dream at dawn.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I don’t love him, period. I didn’t love him before this. I cared about him. And I wanted to love him. Maybe I could have grown to love him. But those feelings just weren’t there. I liked the idea of him. It was exciting. He was exciting. Too exciting.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “But at the time, I honestly didn’t think I was hurting anyone, not even myself. I didn’t think much at all, in fact. Yes, I was gorgeous and lucky in love, but I truly believed that I was also a decent person who deserved her good fortune.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I’m not saying it’s healthy to be past-obsessed, ferreting out details of every ex. But it’s simply human nature to have an occasional, fleeting interest in someone whom you once loved.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “But that’s the thing about the sucker punch; the sucker element hurts worse than the punch.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “She knows in her heart that it doesn’t work like this. That misfortune doesn’t give you the right to disregard others, ignore the rules, tell lies and half-truths.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “It occurs to me that as different as we are in our behavior and decisions, our most basic, knee-jerk emotional reactions to really big things are often remarkably similar. And it is in these moments that I am most grateful for my sister.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I guess she’s been like this since her arrival here, maybe even our whole lives, but sometimes when you know someone well, you don’t see them as they really are. So I honestly think I’ve managed to ignore this fundamental part of her personality, perhaps not wanting to see my closest friend in this light.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “It’s not that simple or clear-cut – and I wonder if it ever is when it comes to matters of the heart.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “When you wanted to savor something, it would speed by in a blur. When you wanted to get past something, it would drag on forever. Elaine.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I think of Josie’s theory that it’s all interrelated, that it all goes back to that night in December, all of our decisions and dreams and mistakes from the past inextricably linked.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “We may not get do-overs in life, but we can always have fresh starts and new beginnings.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I’m not really shy. I’m an introvert.” I went on to explain the difference – the fact that being around people didn’t make me uneasy, I just preferred to be alone most of the time.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “But no matter what you call it, it seems that every couple has two stories- the edited one to be shared from the couch and the unabridged version, best left alone.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Second chances are rare and wonderful.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Why do I need to have reasons? When someone decides to have a baby, people don’t go around asking what her reasons are.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Although too much time has gone by to miss her, I feel regret that I didn’t maintain our friendship. Even if we no longer have much in common, we would have always had the past, which, in some ways, is just as important as the present or future.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “And yet, there is nobody I’d rather talk to, be near, look at, than my husband, an unprecedented feeling that overcame me the moment we met.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I close my eyes, wondering whether we are ever truly blindsided by misfortune. Or, somehow, somewhere, in the form of empathy or worry or a premonition deep within ourselves, do we feel it coming?”
Emily Giffin Quote: “What I can’t stand are the judgmental hypocrites – people who talk a big Christian game yet don’t even make a cursory attempt to follow the Golden Rule, let alone some of those pesky commandments.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I close my eyes, inhale, and feel a rush of heat and energy that takes my breath away. It is the feeling of wanting something so much that it borders on an actual need, and the power and urgency of this need overwhelms me.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I think about the thin, fragile line separating all of us from misfortune, almost as a way of putting a few coins in my own gratitude meter, of safeguarding against and after happening to me.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “You can’t go back,” he says. “Just look forward. You’re doing the right thing now.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “That although I love Nick, on most days I don’t think he lassoed the moon.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Don’t go giving this encounter any crazy meaning like you did with him the first time around. It doesn’t mean a thing. Not a thing. Sometimes, in life, there is no meaning at all.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “He was just the wrong guy for me at the time. Nothing more, nothing less.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “Clutter is knowing all of the things that you absorb through your fashion magazines. Clutter is knowing which celebrities broke up with whom and why.”
Emily Giffin Quote: “I ever stop loving him the way you’re supposed to stop loving everyone but the one you’re with? If the answer is no, then will the lapse of time or a change of geography really fix the problem? And regardless of the answer, what does the mere question say about my relationship with Andy?”
Emily Giffin Quote: “A big mistake. The kind of mistake that brews resentment and dangerous fissures. The kind of mistake that makes your heart ache. The kind of mistake that makes you long for another choice, the past, someone else.”
