209. “It’s been written that, He who does not forgive is guilty of the greater sin. That verse had always confounded me. I had considered it unjust at best and cruel at worst. But these words were not meant as condemnation – rather as illumination of an eternal truth: that to not extend forgiveness is to burn the bridge that we ourselves must cross.”
214. “Jade Dragon will go.”
222. “I’ve always believed that we don’t choose the life we want, we choose the life we think we deserve. We self-sabotage as a way to punish ourselves.” “Why would we punish ourselves? Doesn’t the world punish us enough?” “Why wouldn’t we? We live in a world that is always making us work for love. It’s cause and effect.”
243. “Romance novels are all about desire and happily-ever-after, but happily-ever-after doesn’t come from desire – at least not the kind portrayed in pulp romances. Real love is not to desire a person but to desire their happiness – sometimes even at the expense of our own happiness. Real love is to expand our own capacity for tolerance and caring, to actively seek another’s well-being. All else is simply a charade of self-interest.”
249. “I once heard a writer say, ‘It’s easy to write a novel, you just slit your wrist and let it bleed on the pages.’ She was right... Sophocles and Freud believed that we are defined by our fears. There’s a lot of truth to that. When you share your greatest fears, your vulnerability, we bond in that honesty. We connect with each other and we don’t feel so alone. And that’s what books are really about. Connecting.”
