Book Quote by John Green from Looking for Alaska

I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was hurricane.

Göremiyorum seni ben uzaklardasin sen sevgilim,

Song Quote by Campaign Like Clockwork - She's Taking Me, Album: Neon For No One

She seems to be a star from another world
Bright but far, near but hard to reach
And so I've got to find my way to her every day again
She's invisible but everywhere

Quote by Meredith Grey from Grey's Anatomy in Season 3 Episode 21

Too often, the thing you want most is the one thing you can't have. Desire leaves us heartbroken, it wears us out. Desire can wreck your life. And as tough as wanting something can be, the people who suffer the most are those who don't know what they want.

Movie Quote from My Girl, by Vada

Weeping willow with your tears running down, why do you always weep and frown? Is it because he left you one day? is it because he could not stay? On your branches he would swing, do you long for the happiness that day would bring? He found shelter in your shade. You thought his laughter would never fade. Weeping willow, stop your tears. There is something to calm you fears. You think death has ripped you forever apart. But I know he'll always be in your heart.
