At a certain point, I just have to try not to think too much about certain things, or else they’ll break my heart.

—    Jonathan Franzen

What if instead of the right words, all that it took was the right pair of ears and the right beating heart?

—    Mary Kate Teske

My heart stopped. It just stopped beating. And for the first time in my life, I had that feeling. You know, like the world is moving all around you, all beneath you, all inside you, and you’re floating. Floating in midair. And the only thing keeping you from drifting away is the other person’s eyes. They’re connected to yours by some invisible physical force, and they hold you fast while the rest of the world swirls and twirls and falls completely away.

—    Wendelin Van Draanen, Flipped

You are, at once, both the quiet and the confusion of my heart.

—    Franz Kafka
