Crushes quotes by J. Daniels
#1. The reality of my situation quickly crushes any false hope that could seep into my head and poison what I know to be certain #Quote by J. Daniels
Crushes quotes by Kate Ellison
#2. We are born alone, and all die alone, too. I read that somewhere, in some book. After Oren died I used to lie awake and think about that: think about the universe sucking up hope for us, soul by soul, until we're so dry we all starve, all at once, and the sky takes our bones and crushes them into mulch and starts over again. So goes the cycle. So go the millions and billions of things we can't ever begin to control. #Quote by Kate Ellison
Crushes quotes by Cassandra Clare
#3. Jace didn't just pull the pigtails of people he had crushes on. He pulled the pigtails of everyone in the world he liked. This was something Simon still had not figured out over the years. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Crushes quotes by Michelle Tea
#4. They were living exciting, crazy, queer lives full of poetry and camaraderie and heart-seizing crushes. I mean, not that night, but generally. That night they were bored. #Quote by Michelle Tea
Crushes quotes by Maurice Ashley
#5. Well I just so happened to bump into a chess book in the library at school and I didn't know that there were books on chess and so I take this book out and I'm like this is going to be cool, I'm going to whoop on this guy now, so I studied the book and I go back and the guy crushes me again. #Quote by Maurice Ashley
Crushes quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#6. The first pressure of sorrow crushes out from our hearts the best wine; afterwards the constant weight of it brings forth bitterness, the taste and stain from the lees of the vat. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Crushes quotes by Honore De Balzac
#7. Who shall ever tell how much an unmerited disfavor crushes a shy person? Who can ever depict the misfortunes of timidity? #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Crushes quotes by Darcey Steinke
#8. I always think to myself, being human, having crushes now, what is it about that person that I really want? What do they represent? More freedom? Someone to care for me more? It's never really about the person. #Quote by Darcey Steinke
Crushes quotes by Katy Evans
#9. We won't be having an affair." I stare dumbly, certain I just heard an organ in my body crack in my chest. His hands clamp around me, and he crushes me to his body as he slides his nose along the shell of my ear. "When I take you, you'll be mine," he says, a soft promise in my ear. #Quote by Katy Evans
Crushes quotes by Lynn Shelton
#10. I've fallen for straight men, I've fallen for gay men, I've fallen for straight women and gay women. I really have. I had crushes on really every single kind of person in the world. #Quote by Lynn Shelton
Crushes quotes by William Styron
#11. In depression this faith in deliverance, in ultimate restoration, is absent. The pain is unrelenting, and what makes the condition intolerable is the foreknowledge that no remedy will come- not in a day, an hour, a month, or a minute. If there is mild relief, one knows that it is only temporary; more pain will follow. It is hopelessness even more than pain that crushes the soul. So the decision-making of daily life involves not, as in normal affairs, shifting from one annoying situation to another less annoying- or from discomfort to relative comfort, or from boredom to activity- but moving from pain to pain. One does not abandon, even briefly, one's bed of nails, but is attached to it wherever one goes. And this results in a striking experience- one which I have called, borrowing military terminology, the situation of the walking wounded. For in virtually any other serious sickness, a patient who felt similar devistation would by lying flat in bed, possibly sedated and hooked up to the tubes and wires of life-support systems, but at the very least in a posture of repose and in an isolated setting. His invalidism would be necessary, unquestioned and honorably attained. However, the sufferer from depression has no such option and therefore finds himself, like a walking casualty of war, thrust into the most intolerable social and family situations. There he must, despite the anguish devouring his brain, present a face approximating the one that is associated with ordinary event #Quote by William Styron
Crushes quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#12. Capital, created by the labour of the worker, crushes the worker, ruining small proprietors and creating an army of unemployed. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Crushes quotes by Sarah Strohmeyer
#13. For years, he's been listening to her complain about being ignored by Justin and assuring it her it was simply a matter of time until his friend saw the light. After all, if Henry was friends with Neerja and Henry was friends with Justin then, logically, Justin would be friends with Neerja. According to Henry, their eventual relationship was dictated by the transitive property.

But Neerja didn't want to be 'just friends' with Justin, and she was tired of waiting for the transitive property to jump-start her love life. #Quote by Sarah Strohmeyer
Crushes quotes by Haruki Murakami
#14. That's wrong," she declared. "Everyone must have one thing that they can excel at. It's just a matter of drawing it out, isn't it? But school doesn't know how to draw it out. It crushes the gift. It's no wonder most people never get to be what they want to be. They just get ground down. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Crushes quotes by Natalie Portman
#15. I don't think I've ever been in love, I'm sure I will be some day. I've had enormous crushes, although I've never been into the Brad Pitt thing. #Quote by Natalie Portman
Crushes quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#16. Crushes are so awful. I wonder if they suck worse for the crush-er or the crush-ee. I consider my three years of watching Josh from afar. Yeah, definitely the crush-er. #Quote by Stephanie Perkins
Crushes quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#17. Debt is to man what the serpent is to the bird; its eye fascinates, its breath poisons, its coil crushes sinew and bone, its jaw is the pitiless grave. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Crushes quotes by Veronica Nagorny
#18. I've had many crushes before, but none so deep as this. Your scent's the only thing I crave; you're the only one I miss. #Quote by Veronica Nagorny
Crushes quotes by Sylvia Plath
#19. Strange, when one thinks of all the other boys, infinite experimental kisses, test tube infatuations, crushes, pseudo-loves.
All through this physical separation, through the testing and the trying of the others, there has been this peculiar rapport, comradeship, of us two so alike, so similar, but for science-boy and humanities-girl - the introspection, self examination, biannual deep summarizing conversations, and then the platonic parting. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Crushes quotes by Nina LaCour
#20. Crushes are supposed to be fun, aren't they? They definitely aren't supposed to be so torturous. #Quote by Nina LaCour
Crushes quotes by Raheel Farooq
#21. Teenage crush is like flu. If you find a remedy for it, it lasts for a couple of days. If you don't, it still lasts for a couple of days. #Quote by Raheel Farooq
Crushes quotes by Xosha Roquemore
#22. I have, like, 45 celeb crushes at all times - celeb and Instagram crushes. I'm such a creep. #Quote by Xosha Roquemore
Crushes quotes by Liam Hemsworth
#23. As the younger brother, I think you always have crushes on your older brother's girlfriends. #Quote by Liam Hemsworth
Crushes quotes by Max Arthur Macauliffe
#24. It (Hinduism) is like the boa constrictor of the Indian forests. When a petty enemy appears to worry it, it winds round its opponent, crushes it in its folds, and finally causes it to disappear in its capaciousinterior ... Hinduism has embraced Sikhism in its folds; the still comparatively young religion is making a vigorous struggle for life, but its ultimate destruction is, it is apprehended, inevitable without State support. #Quote by Max Arthur Macauliffe
Crushes quotes by Chris Hedges
#25. Force," Simone Weil wrote, "is as pitiless to the man who possesses it, or thinks he does, as it is to its victims; the second it crushes, the first it intoxicates."2 #Quote by Chris Hedges
Crushes quotes by Ayn Rand
#26. For the word "We" must never be spoken, save by one's choice and as a second thought. This word must never be placed first within man's soul, else it becomes a monster, the root of all the evils on earth, the root of man's torture by men, and of an unspeakable lie.
The word "We" is as lime poured over men, which sets and hardens to stone, and crushes all beneath it, and that which is white and that which is black are lost equally in the grey of it. It is the word by which the depraved steal the virtue of the good, by which the weak steal the might of the strong, by which the fools steal the wisdom of the sages. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Crushes quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#27. War kills men, and men deplore the loss; but war also crushes bad principles and tyrants, and so saves societies. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Crushes quotes by Autumn Reeser
#28. Wil Wheaton, Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes were all the early formidable crushes of my girlhood. #Quote by Autumn Reeser
Crushes quotes by Emery Lord
#29. Summer crushes happen all the time, right? Because you feel far away from the real world, everything seems more...possible. Every person seems more vital. #Quote by Emery Lord
Crushes quotes by Elizabeth Banks
#30. Someone told me that having a baby is like having your heart walking around outside of your body, and I didn't understand it until I had a baby. Now, like, everything he does literally crushes my heart. In a great way. And then if he's in pain, it's like my whole endeavor is to make sure he's not in pain. #Quote by Elizabeth Banks
Crushes quotes by Kate Winslet
#31. I never had crushes on anybody when I was younger; I really didn't. #Quote by Kate Winslet
Crushes quotes by Kevin J. Anderson
#32. Frohike ... had a long-standing crush on Dana Scully, but basically it was all talk. Mulder suspected Frohike would turn into a jittering mass of nerves if Scully ever consented to go out with him. #Quote by Kevin J. Anderson
Crushes quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#33. The core symbols we use for God represent what we take to be the highest good ... These symbols or images shape our worldview, our ethical system, and our social practice
how we relate to one another.
For instance, [Elizabeth A.] Johnson suggests that if a religion speaks about God as warrior, using militaristic language such as how "he crushes his enemies" and summoning people to become soldiers in God's army, then the people tend to become militaristic and aggressive.
Likewise, if the key symbol of God is that of a male king (without any balancing feminine imagery), we become a culture that values and enthrones men and masculinity. #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Crushes quotes by Andreas Steinhöfel
#34. Purgatory of about ten seconds' duration while I debate all I'd like to say. I don't know whether to look straight past him, shake his hand by way of greeting, or simply run off screaming. #Quote by Andreas Steinhöfel
Crushes quotes by Sanford Meisner
#35. Life beats down and crushes our souls and theatre reminds us that we have one. At least the type of theatre that I'm interested in; that is, theatre that moves an audience. You have the opportunity to literally impact the lives of people if they work on material that has integrity. But today, most actors simply want to be famous. Well, being an actor was never supposed to be about fame and money. Being an actor is a religious calling because you've been given the ability, the gift to inspire humanity. Think about that on the way to your soap opera audition. #Quote by Sanford Meisner
Crushes quotes by Srinivas Shenoy
#36. Crushes are more beautiful than affairs because there is no responsibility, no worry, no commitment. Just look at your crush and smile like an idiot. #Quote by Srinivas Shenoy
Crushes quotes by Philip K. Dick
#37. I resemble that worm which crawls through dust,
Lives in the dust, eats dust
Until a passerby's foot crushes it. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Crushes quotes by Sandra Villa
#38. You care so much for that special person because it feels like that person is part of you. #Quote by Sandra Villa
Crushes quotes by Alecia Whitaker
#39. His green-flecked brown eyes twinkle, and we laugh together, easy and light. He opens the door for me, and I say goodbye, floating over to where my family waits in our Winnebago. And I can't tell you if my feet actually touch the ground, because at this very moment, this Bird, well, she flies. #Quote by Alecia Whitaker
Crushes quotes by Paul Monette
#40. The problem with secret crushes: in the absence of requital the love turns bitter. #Quote by Paul Monette
Crushes quotes by Paul Hoffman
#41. Force is as pitiless to the man who possesses it as it is to its victims - the second it crushes, the first it intoxicates. #Quote by Paul Hoffman
Crushes quotes by Paul Davies
#42. Although gravity is by far the weakest force of nature, its insidious and cumulative action serves to determine the ultimate fate not only of individual astronomical objects but of the entire cosmos. The same remorseless attraction that crushes a star operates on a much grander scale on the universe as a whole. #Quote by Paul Davies
Crushes quotes by Nalini Singh
#43. I'm scared all the time," he admitted, bracing his hands on the counter. "I know he's powerful, I've seen him in battle, and yet the fear crushes me."
"Of course it does." Elena let her wing overlap his. "That's what it means to love someone. #Quote by Nalini Singh
Crushes quotes by Margaret Stohl
#44. In the end, the Wheel crushes us all. #Quote by Margaret Stohl
Crushes quotes by Dolores O'Riordan
#45. I am in no position to judge other women, you know. But I mean, why did she get pregnant? It's not good for women to go through the procedure [abortion] and have something living sucked out of their bodies. It belittles women. Even though some women say, 'Oh, I don't mind to have one,' every time a woman has an abortion, it just crushes her self-esteem smaller and smaller and smaller. #Quote by Dolores O'Riordan
Crushes quotes by Carmen Maria Machado
#46. Your female crushes were always floating past you, out of reach, but she touches your arm and looks directly at you and you feel like a child buying something with her own money for the first time. #Quote by Carmen Maria Machado
Crushes quotes by Christina Lauren
#47. Ugh. Crushes are the worst, but in hindsight a crush from afar seems so much easier than this. I should stick to making up stories in my head and watching from a distance like a reasonable creeper. Now I've broken the fourth wall and if he's as friendly as his eyes tell me he is, he may notice me when I drop money in his case the next time, and I will be forced to interact smoothly or run in the opposite direction. I may be middle-of-the-pack when my mouth is closed, but as soon as I start talking to men, Lulu calls me Appalland, for how appallingly unappealing I become. Obviously, she's not wrong. And now I'm sweating under my pink wool coat, my face is melting, and I'm hit with an almost uncontrollable urge to hike my tights up to my armpits because they have slowly crept down beneath my skirt and are starting to feel like form-fitting harem pants. #Quote by Christina Lauren
Crushes quotes by Katja Millay
#48. It's about the dream of second chances," he says finally. He hasn't raised his eyes from the paper on his desk and I feel him looking at me without looking when he uses his grandfather's words. "The narrator doesn't respect the beauty of life and the world around her, so it crushes her into the ground and once she's dead, she realizes everything she took for granted and didn't see right in front of her while she was alive. She's begging for another chance to live again so she can appreciate it this time."
"And does she get that chance?" she asks Josh while I desperately focus on the poster of literary terms on the wall and wait for absolution. When it comes, I barely hear it.
"She does. #Quote by Katja Millay
Crushes quotes by C.M. Stunich
#49. Falling in love sucks. It's like being dragged into a black hole. Once you get caught in the orbit, that's it. There's no getting out. The gravity of the emotion crushes you down until you're nothing but that, ( ... ) #Quote by C.M. Stunich
Crushes quotes by Adam Silvera
#50. Every mistake I've made, every wrong I've repeated, every unhealed headache: I feel it all and more as the weight of my old world crushes me. If you looked inside me, I bet you'd find two different hearts beating for two different people, like the sun and moon up at the same time, a terrible eclipse I'm the only witness to.

My worlds collided and I can't get up. #Quote by Adam Silvera
Crushes quotes by Colleen Hoover
#51. Because when you love someone, you owe it to them to help them be the best version of themselves that they can be. And as much as it crushes me to admit this, the best version of you doesn't include me. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Crushes quotes by Heidi Julavits
#52. Crushes thrive in small spaces. Humans must be programmed to respond positively when faced with a small sampling of other humans in, say, caves. You're stuck in a cave with three other people - all mankind, presumably, was hidden away in such tiny groups during the winters until the thaw - and so, in order for the species to thrive, you must be biologically compelled to fuck at least one person in your cave, despite the fact that, when surrounded by a plenitude of Neanderthals at the Neanderthal summer barbecue, none of them struck your fancy. Without the element of choice, and in conjunction with captivity, you find love, or at least you find lust. #Quote by Heidi Julavits
Crushes quotes by Raquel Welch
#53. Oh I had crushes on all my leading men, I think. Oh, you know who I really had fun with? In this movie 'Mother, Jugs & Speed,' I really liked working with Harvey Keitel. #Quote by Raquel Welch
Crushes quotes by Llewellyn Rockwell
#54. Socialism crushes human rights, builds the state, impinges on the liberty of conscience, and breeds social, cultural, and economic degeneration. #Quote by Llewellyn Rockwell
Crushes quotes by Veronica Roth
#55. I try not to walk out of the room too fast. When the dormitory door closes behind me, I touch a hand to my forehead and grin a little. Awkwardness aside, it is nice to be liked. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Crushes quotes by Jenny Diski
#56. Being really alone means being free from anticipation. Even to know that something is going to happen, that I am required to do something is an intrusion on the emptiness I am after. What I love to see is an empty diary, pages and pages of nothing planned. A date, an arrangement, is a point in the future when something is required of me. I begin to worry about it days, sometimes weeks ahead. Just a haircut, a hospital visit, a dinner party. Going out. The weight of the thing-that-is-going-to-happen sits on my heart and crushes the present into non-existence. My ability to live in the here and now depends on not having any plans, on there being no expected interruption. I have no other way to do it. How can you be alone, properly alone, if you know someone is going to knock at the door in five hours, or tomorrow morning, or you have to get ready and go out in three days' time? I can't abide the fracturing of the present by the intrusion of a planned future. #Quote by Jenny Diski
Crushes quotes by Roman Baldorioty De Castro
#57. The weight of great power crushes the goodness of the man who rules and the honesty of those who are ruled. #Quote by Roman Baldorioty De Castro
Crushes quotes by Dan Ariely
#58. Giving people favors is a time-honored way of gaining loyalty. Pharmaceutical reps do it. The salespeople manning cosmetic counters do it. Lobbyists do it. Men with big crushes on impossibly beautiful women do it. Gifts work on our feelings in a couple of ways: they change the way we experience something, and they push our "reciprocate!" button. When we have the mandate to be objective and an incentive not to be, our biases often win the day-even if we don't think they will. Favors deeply affect our preferences and our loyalties. #Quote by Dan Ariely
Crushes quotes by Jarod Kintz
#59. My love is like a crumbly cookie. It's very hard to give all of it to just one person. Try as I might to give it all to just one woman, crumbs break off here and there in meaningless crushes and kisses and - but what am I saying? Baby, you know you're the only one I've given my cookie to. Can I get you a tall glass of milk? #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Crushes quotes by Kami Garcia
#60. the wheel of fate crushes us all #Quote by Kami Garcia
Crushes quotes by Becky Albertalli
#61. Like, this whole Molly thing with the secret crushes that go nowhere. I'm over it." "Oh, you're over it?" My throat tightens. "Uh, I'm sorry boys don't like me." "That is such bullshit, Molly. You don't even talk to them." Here we go. Cassie's soapbox: the fact that I've had twenty-six crushes and exactly zero kisses. Apparently, it's because I need to woman up. If I like a guy, I'm supposed to tell him. Maybe in Cassie's world, you can do that and have it end in making out. But I'm not so sure it works that way for fat girls. #Quote by Becky Albertalli
Crushes quotes by Autumn Doughton
#62. Crushes are for fourteen year olds. Ellie, I would describe what's happening to you as falling. #Quote by Autumn Doughton
Crushes quotes by Kendare Blake
#63. I make my way to her table, seeing her eyes growing wider as I do. Ten or so other girls probably just developed instantaneous crushes on me, because they see Carmel likes me. Or so the sociologist in my brain says. #Quote by Kendare Blake
Crushes quotes by James Weldon Johnson
#64. New York City is the most fatally fascinating thing in America. She sits like a great witch at the gate of the country, showing her alluring white face, and hiding her crooked hands and feet under the folds of her wide garments,
constantly enticing thousands from far within, and tempting those who come from across the seas to go no farther. And all these become the victims of her caprice. Some she at once crushes beneath her cruel feet; others she condemns to a fate like that of galley slaves; a few she favors and fondles, riding them high on the bubbles of fortune; then with a sudden breath she blows the bubbles out and laughs mockingly as she watches them fall. #Quote by James Weldon Johnson
Crushes quotes by Melanie Kay Taylor
#65. I used to like you. You liked me back. I knew you liked me. You knew I liked you. Why didn't you try for me? I always tried for you to notice me. You did. Don't be shy. I won't bite. #Quote by Melanie Kay Taylor
Crushes quotes by Jonathan Sacks
#66. The market economy is deeply congruent with the values set out in the Hebrew Bible. Material prosperity is a divine blessing. Poverty crushes the spirit as well as the body, and its alleviation is a sacred task. Work is a noble calling. #Quote by Jonathan Sacks
Crushes quotes by Blaise Pascal
#67. The human being is only a reed, the most feeble in nature; but this is a thinking reed. It isn't necessary for the entire universe to arm itself in order to crush him; a whiff of vapor, a taste of water, suffices to kill him. But when the universe crushes him, the human being becomes still more noble than that which kills him, because he knows that he is dying, and the advantage that the universe has over him. The universe, it does not have a clue.
All our dignity consists, then, in thought. This is the basis on which we must raise ourselves, and not space and time, which we would not know how to fill. Let us make it our task, then, to think well: here is the principle of morality. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Crushes quotes by Becky Albertalli
#68. I know this doesn't exactly make me unique, but I love the internet. I love it. I think the way I feel about the internet is the way some people feel about the ocean. It's so huge and unknowable, but also totally predictable. You type a line of symbols and click enter, and everything you want to happen, happens.
Not like real life, where all the wanting in the world can't make something exist #Quote by Becky Albertalli
Crushes quotes by Jesse Browner
#69. ... there is also an underlying, less specific fear - what some might call an ontological or existential anxiety - that shrouds our days and seeps into our dreams. We feel empty and seek meaning. We feel empty and seek meaning. We yearn and know not what we yearn for. There is a black hole at the center of our understanding that engulfs and crushes our every attempt to explore it. Something is missing. #Quote by Jesse Browner
Crushes quotes by Javier Marias
#70. Seafood poisoning, a cigarette lit as the person is drifting off to sleep and that sets fire to the sheets or, worse, to a woollen blanket; a slip in the shower - the back of the head - the bathroom door locked; a lightning bolt that splits in two a tree planted in a broad avenue, a tree which, as it falls, crushes or slices off the head of a passer-by, possibly a foreigner; dying in your socks, or at the barber's, still wearing a voluminous smock, or in a whorehouse or at the dentist's; or eating fish and getting a bone stuck in your throat, choking to death like a child whose mother isn't there to save him by sticking a finger down his throat; or dying in the middle of shaving, with one cheek still covered in foam, half-shaven for all eternity, unless someone notices and finishes the job off out of aesthetic pity; not to mention life's most ignoble, hidden moments that people seldom mention once they are out of adolescence, simply because they no longer have an excuse to do so, although, of course, there are always those who insist on making jokes about them, never very funny jokes. #Quote by Javier Marias
Crushes quotes by Michel Pastoureau
#71. ...[T]he king is lying down, severely wounded; one of his faithful companions, Lucan the Butler, approaches, in tears, to say a final farewell. Arthur stands up to embrace him, "holding him so tightly against his chest that he smothers him, crushes his heart and kills him." This is a strange and dramatic event, unexpected, serving no plot purpose, but an event that recalls that Arthur was in origin a bear-king endowed with superhuman strength: like the animal he could kill his enemy in hand to hand combat simply by pressing him against his chest. The king is not aware of his animal strength, but even as he is dying, he retains the power to cause death by a mere embrace, a power that no human being possesses. (p.53-54) #Quote by Michel Pastoureau
Crushes quotes by Douglas Wilson
#72. Had he ever told Cindi about that junior high crush? Probably. What did it matter? There had been three other crushes, probably that same year. That's what junior high is for. #Quote by Douglas Wilson
Crushes quotes by Kat Kruger
#73. She goes very still and I can count on one hand all the times we've been here before, standing at the precipice of almost and staring down into the abyss of what-if. #Quote by Kat Kruger
Crushes quotes by Chevy Stevens
#74. There are all these books that say we create our own destiny and what we believe is what we manifest. You're supposed to walk around with this perpetual bubble over your head thinking happy thoughts and then everything is going to be sunshine and roses. Nope, sorry, don't think so. You can be as happy as you've ever been in your life, and shit is still going to happen. But it doesn't just happen. It knocks you sideways and crushes you into the ground, because you were stupid enough to believe in sunshine and roses. (99) #Quote by Chevy Stevens
Crushes quotes by N.K. Jemisin
#75. It was simply that I knew, or had known, precisely why he did not love all his children equally. Differentiation, variation, appreciation of the unique: this was part of what he was. His children were not the same, so his feelings toward each were not the same. He loved us all, but differently. And because he did this, because he did not pretend that love was fair or equal, mortals could mate for an afternoon or for the rest of their lives. Mothers could tell their twins or triplets apart. Children could have crushes and outgrow them; elders could remain devoted to their spouses long after beauty had gone. The mortal heart was fickle. Naha made it so. And because of this, they were free to love as they wished, and not solely by the dictates of instinct or power or tradition. #Quote by N.K. Jemisin
Crushes quotes by Jessica Marie Gilliland
#76. I felt electric when he touched me. I'd had crushes before; when your body melts and tingles but this was different. It was like a magnetic pull. Every cell in my body pulled toward him. It was almost uncomfortable but I found myself craving another touch. #Quote by Jessica Marie Gilliland
Crushes quotes by Brian Molko
#77. I don't seem to meet very many men I find attractive. And usually when I meet them and develop crushes on them they are usually straight. So I end up having more relationships with women ... #Quote by Brian Molko
Crushes quotes by Ayn Rand
#78. One puts oneself above all and crushes everything in one's way to get the best for oneself. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Crushes quotes by Joan Collins
#79. I've fallen in love maybe five times in my life. But it's a long life. I do get crushes. Whether it's men or women or babies. #Quote by Joan Collins
Crushes quotes by Thomas Hardy
#80. The flowers in the bride's hand are sadly like the garland which decked the heifers of sacrifice in old times!"
"Still, Sue, it is no worse for the woman than for the man. That's what some women fail to see, and instead of protesting against the conditions they protest against the man, the other victim; just as a woman in a crowd will abuse the man who crushes against her, when he is only the helpless transmitter of the pressure put upon him. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Crushes quotes by Emma Watson
#81. I've never understood having crushes on people who you don't know in real life. #Quote by Emma Watson
Crushes quotes by Shannon Celebi
#82. I hung a picture of him above my bed and learned by hand the internal workings of the female combustion engine. #Quote by Shannon Celebi
Crushes quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#83. I hold another creed, which no one ever taught me, and which I seldom mention, but in which I delight, and to which I cling, for it extends hope to all; it makes eternity a rest - a mighty home, not a terror and an abyss. Besides, with this creed, I can so clearly distinguish between the criminal and his crime; I can so sincerely forgive the first while I abhor the last; with this creed, revenge never worries my heart, degradation never too deeply disgusts me, injustice never crushes me too low. I live in calm, looking to the end. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Crushes quotes by Georgette Heyer
#84. My God, Justin, do you hate him so?"
"Bah!" said his Grace ... "does one hate an adder? Because it is venomous and loathsome one crushes it underfoot, as I shall crush this Comte. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Crushes quotes by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
#85. The mass crushes beneath it everything that is different, that is excellent, individual, qualified, and select. Anybody who is not like everybody, who does not think like everybody, runs the risk of being eliminated. And it is clear that this "everybody" is not "everybody." "Everybody" was normally the complex unity of the mass and the divergent, specialized elite groups. Nowadays, "everybody" is the mass alone. #Quote by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
Crushes quotes by Katrina Bowden
#86. I have so many girl crushes, it changes all the time. I love Catherine Zeta Jones, she's so beautiful, Lucy Liu, Jennifer Aniston and Zooey Deschanel; she's adorable. #Quote by Katrina Bowden
Crushes quotes by Samuel Beckett
#87. The sweet creature! She would look it up in her big Dante when she got home. What a woman! #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Crushes quotes by Machik Labdrön
#88. Oh, noble child, everything is severing the mind. As for the mind, it is severing pride. There is nothing whatsoever that is not included in pride. If one simply understands that it is merely the production of pride, then, for example, one is like a thief in an empty house: by simply recognizing [the situation], grasping is impossible. Having correctly understood, there is no practice with an intentional objective. Because it crushes any hesitations (mi phod), it is explained as Chöd. #Quote by Machik Labdrön
Crushes quotes by Morgan Matson
#89. Theoretical crushes could remain perfect and flawless, because you never actually had to find out what that person was really like or deal with the weird way they chewed or anything. #Quote by Morgan Matson
Crushes quotes by Megan McCafferty
#90. I'm not in love. It's a crush which is why it hurts. Crushes crush. Otherwise they'd be called awesomes. I have an awesome on him. #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Crushes quotes by Miriam Makeba
#91. I look at an ant and I see myself: a native South African, endowed by nature with a strength much greater than my size so I might cope with the weight of a racism that crushes my spirit. #Quote by Miriam Makeba
Crushes quotes by Victor Hugo
#92. To introduce a new play only six weeks after another has been banned is also a way to speak one's piece to the government. It proves that art and liberty can grow back in one night under the clumsy foot which crushes them. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Crushes quotes by Kate Hattemer
#93. Everybody has unattainable crushes too and imaginary friends. Some part of their mind that they talk to when they can't deal with talking to real people. #Quote by Kate Hattemer
Crushes quotes by A. J. Jacobs
#94. I'm pissed at myself. I just spent forty-five minutes Googling my ex-girlfriends and ex-crushes. That's just information I don't need ... This is an unhealthy addiction ... a waste of my time and brain space. #Quote by A. J. Jacobs
Crushes quotes by Rohit Shetty
#95. Hema Malini and Nutan were my childhood crushes! I met Hemaji once when dad took me to the set of a film. Both these ladies stole my heart with their beauty and grace. #Quote by Rohit Shetty
Crushes quotes by Richard PW Tan
#96. Grace and truth are distinct and yet they are not mutually exclusive. But when people focus on one without the other, they usually fall into two extremes. They either embrace a gospel of "grace without truth" or a gospel of "truth without grace".
Grace without truth is not really grace. Truth without grace is not really truth. Grace without truth pampers. Truth without grace hammers.
Grace without truth is love without correction. Truth without grace is correction without love. Grace without truth is mercy without justice. Truth without grace is justice without mercy.
Grace without truth is soft and spoils people. Truth without grace is harsh and crushes people. Grace without truth is freedom without responsibility. Truth without grace is responsibility without freedom.
Either extremes are neither of Christ or the gospel. #Quote by Richard PW Tan
Crushes quotes by Chloe Aridjis
#97. He had started out as a snag, a snag in the composition; from one moment to the next, there was no other way of putting it, he had begun to appear in my life back in the city. And since all appearances are ultimately disturbances, this disturbance needed investigating. #Quote by Chloe Aridjis
Crushes quotes by Crystal Woods
#98. Even when I'm sleeping, I go to places where you are. #Quote by Crystal Woods
Crushes quotes by Adin Ballou
#99. But now, instead of discussion and argument, brute force rises up to the rescue of discomfited error, and crushes truth and right into the dust. 'Might makes right,' and hoary folly totters on in her mad career escorted by armies and navies. #Quote by Adin Ballou
Crushes quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#100. In the morning, we carry the world like Atlas; at noon, we stoop and bend beneath it; and at night, it crushes us flat to the ground. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Crushes quotes by John Peter Altgeld
#101. The doctrine that might makes right has covered the earth with misery. While it crushes the weak, it also destroys the strong. Every deceit, every cruelty, every wrong, reaches back sooner or later and crushes its author. Justice is moral health, bringing happiness, wrong is moral disease, bringing mortal death. #Quote by John Peter Altgeld
Crushes quotes by Elizabeth Van Lew
#102. Slave power crushes freedom of speech and of opinion. Slave power degrades labor. Slave power is arrogant, is jealous and intrusive, is cruel, is despotic, not only over the slave but over the community, the state. #Quote by Elizabeth Van Lew
Crushes quotes by Daria Snadowsky
#103. It's like my entire conscious state has been reduced to this toxic blend of hope and uncertainty. I hate that I have to act cool and almost pretend I don't like him when in fact I do, because, God forbid, I might come across as desperate for affection or a little clingy, which everyone should know are perfectly natural human behaviors, after all. Ugh! #Quote by Daria Snadowsky
Crushes quotes by Michael Robotham
#104. She is more memory than reality. She belongs to a time of teenage crushes, first kisses, crowded lecture halls and smoky pubs. Even if she had lived, we might have had nothing in common except the past. #Quote by Michael Robotham
Crushes quotes by Nikolai Gogol
#105. All this convinced him that he had come to one of those revolting havens where pathetic depravity makes its abode, born of tawdry education and the terrible populousness of the capital. One of those havens where man blasphemously crushes and derides all the pure and holy that adorns life, where woman, the beauty of the world, the crown of creation, turns into some strange, ambiguous being, where, along with purity of soul, she loses everything feminine and repulsively adopts all the mannerisms and insolence of a man, and ceases to be that weak, that beautiful being so different from us. #Quote by Nikolai Gogol
Crushes quotes by Megan McCafferty
#106. Dear Hope, I NEVER thought Id see the day when two of your daily e-mails sandwiched a message from none other than PAUL PARLIPIANO. My crush to end all crushes! Gay man of my dreams! OOOH! #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Crushes quotes by Lauren Helms
#107. He crushes his lips to mine. My face is already wet from tears, but the kiss isn't sweet and romantic. At that moment, it feels like a kiss of life or death. It is carnal and harsh. I will never forget this kiss. #Quote by Lauren Helms
Crushes quotes by Adam Lambert
#108. I have crushes on women all the time. #Quote by Adam Lambert
Crushes quotes by Karl Liebknecht

Crushes quotes by James Baldwin
#110. Time catches up with kingdoms and crushes them, gets its teeth into doctrines and rends them; time reveals the foundations on which any kingdom rests, and eats at those foundations, and it destroys doctrines by proving them to be untrue. #Quote by James Baldwin
Crushes quotes by Metallica
#111. The Hammer Of Justice Crushes You #Quote by Metallica
Crushes quotes by Aminah Mae Safi
#112. They told her the attack was her fault. She was Iraqi, wasn't she, they had accused. They knew she was Muslim. Her fault, they had kept on, the dirty little terrorist, the conspiring towel head. Lulu had stood for the first time, at a loss for words. Worse than hearing the words from hateful strangers-she had heard the poisonous words from boys she'd grown up with, boys she'd kissed, boys she'd had crushes on, boys she'd tasted her first alcohol with, boys she'd wrestled with for control of the tv remote.

Strangers, at least, she could have ignored.

She should have felt punched in the stomach. But she hadn't. She should have screamed and yelled back at them. But she hadn't. Instead, she had stood there, dazed and stupid, while wondering if all those years she'd thought she belonged there she had been terribly, horribly mistaken. The relatives who died fighting tyranny had choked the words in her throat. Her heart had shattered that day, into thousands of selfish pieces. The one she had now, the one she had to put back together, had slivers missing in the strangest of places. #Quote by Aminah Mae Safi
Crushes quotes by Mina V. Esguerra
#113. She and I, we were girls who never said anything. Never wanted to assume anything. It was a coping mechanism, saving our faces for when guys like Quin came along and acted all nice towards us. #Quote by Mina V. Esguerra
Crushes quotes by Mike McKinley
#114. The question isn't whether we're guilty; it's how we deal with that guilt. Do we seek to shift it; seek to work it off; carry it till it crushes us; or give it to Jesus, let Him deal with it, and know the burden lifting wonder of a clean slate? #Quote by Mike McKinley
Crushes quotes by Paula Hawkins
#115. But the thing people don't seem to realize is that I don't want to not feel like this. How can I not feel like this? My sadness feels right. It … weighs the right amount, crushes me just enough. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
Crushes quotes by Nina LaCour
#116. my life is just waiting for you to get started. #Quote by Nina LaCour
Crushes quotes by Georges Bataille
#117. The sovereign being is burdened with a servitude that crushes him, and the condition of free men is deliberate servility. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Crushes quotes by Timothy Conigrave
#118. I guess the hardest thing is having so much love for you and it somehow not being returned. I develop crushes all the time, but that is just misdirected need for you. You are a hole in my life, a black hole. Anything I place there cannot be returned. #Quote by Timothy Conigrave
Crushes quotes by Anna Todd
#119. I have decided that the hot, burning, inescapable pain is the worst. This pain comes when you finally begin to relax, you finally breathe, thinking that some issue is yesterday's problem, when in fact it's today's problem, tomorrow's problem, and the problem of every day after that. This pain comes when you pour everything into something, into someone, and they betray you so completely - so seemingly on a whim - that the pain crushes you and you feel as if you're barely breathing, barely holding on to that small fraction of whatever is left inside of you begging you to go on, to not give up.
-Tessa #Quote by Anna Todd
Crushes quotes by Vivian Shaw
#120. Greta smiled suddenly, and he had to blink. It was a little like watching a small and self-contained sunrise. 'Thank you,' she said. 'I'm...very glad you're here.'

Just for a moment, Varney thought that *he* was, too. For a moment. #Quote by Vivian Shaw
Crushes quotes by Becky Albertalli
#121. I want to know what it feels like to have crushes that could conceivably maybe one day turn into boyfriends. #Quote by Becky Albertalli
Crushes quotes by Courteney Cox
#122. I've got some great guy friends. They can start out as crushes. But when you realize something isn't going to happen, you make a choice whether or not the friendship is worth it. And it usually is. Then you can laugh about the fact that you used to have a crush on him or he had one on you. #Quote by Courteney Cox

Crushes quotes by Julia Fierro
#128. The caterpillars are coming. They're coming. As they passed a blunt rolled with marijuana shake around the bonfire, filled plastic cups with beer from a keg in the back of John Anderson's Bronco, snuck cigarettes at the red doors that led to the make-out woods behind school. As they waited on line at the cafeteria for pizza and Tater Tots, warmed up during choral practice, and changed for gym in the locker room. Until Maddie felt something titanic rushing toward the island, gathering steam like a nor'easter barreling toward shore, and the waiting filled with a tingling urgency she knew they all felt. She felt it. Car engines revved harder, highs soared higher, buzzes and crushes burned brighter. "Look." She lifted her palm as the insect inched across. The two lines of blue and red dots on its back glimmered like spots of blood rising after a pinprick. "They're here. #Quote by Julia Fierro
Crushes quotes by Michael   Lewis
#129. There's a difference between an old-fashioned financial panic and what had happened on Wall Street in 2008. In an old-fashioned panic, perception creates its own reality: Someone shouts "Fire!" in a crowded theater and the audience crushes each other to death in its rush for the exits. On Wall Street in 2008 the reality finally overwhelmed perceptions: A crowded theater burned down with a lot of people still in their seats. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Crushes quotes by Timothy Keller
#130. A job is a vocation only if someone else calls you to do it for them rather than for yourself. And so our work can be a calling only if it is reimagined as a mission of service to something beyond merely our own interests. Thinking of work mainly as a means of self-fulfillment and self-realization slowly crushes a person. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Crushes quotes by Rick Riordan
#131. a tree falls in the forest and crushes a demon, does the tree get cursed? #Quote by Rick Riordan
Crushes quotes by Ashley Tisdale
#132. I want people to know that I'm a real person, and that I've been through normal situations, like crushes and heartbreaks. #Quote by Ashley Tisdale
Crushes quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre

Crushes quotes by Edmund White
#135. Suffering does make us more sensitive until it crushes us completely. #Quote by Edmund White
Crushes quotes by Katrina Kaif
#136. Guys never looked at me. I always had crushes on older seniors who never looked at me. So, when I tell directors that I wanna play that girl who gets rejected, they're like, 'Why?' I tell them it's because I relate to that girl much more than being the girl who makes jaws drop when she walks into a room. #Quote by Katrina Kaif
Crushes quotes by Milan Kundera
#137. The heaviest of burdens crushes us, we sink beneath it, it pins us to the ground. But in love poetry of every age, the woman longs to be weighed down by the man's body.The heaviest of burdens is therefore simultaneously an image of life's most intense fulfillment. The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become. Conversely, the absolute absence of burden causes man to be lighter than air, to soar into heights, take leave of the earth and his earthly being, and become only half real, his movements as free as they are insignificant. What then shall we choose? Weight or lightness? #Quote by Milan Kundera
Crushes quotes by Taisen Deshimaru
#138. We feel our shell keeps us safe, but it crushes us and others, and keeps out light and sun. #Quote by Taisen Deshimaru
Crushes quotes by Gaia B. Amman
#139. The world crashed on me. I smiled like an idiot as I stood up and rushed away hoping he'd forget we had ever spoken. I walked away from the Company and Sonia, but mostly from Giovanni. I had finally met an awesome guy who did not look like a thug and he was four years older than me? #Quote by Gaia B. Amman
Crushes quotes by Eden Maguire
#140. Before me, before us - did you ever - were you ever in love?'
He paused for a while then shrugged. 'I thought I was a couple of times at my last school - the usual crushes.'
'Yeah, I really don't want to hear it,' I said, backtracking like crazy. 'You're going to tell me they were blond and beautiful size zeros. #Quote by Eden Maguire
Crushes quotes by Charles De Gaulle
#141. War stirs in men's hearts the mud of their worst instincts. It puts a premium on violence, nourishes hatred, and gives free rein to cupidity. It crushes the weak, exalts the unworthy, and bolsters tyranny ..Time and time again it has destroyed all ordered living, devastated hope, and put the prophets to death. #Quote by Charles De Gaulle
Crushes quotes by R.K. Ryals
#142. There are no words big enough to describe grief. It's an incredibly lonely, empty place, a large hole that swallows your soul and threatens to destroy it. It's a dark place with no light that blinds you, deafens you, and crushes your spirit. It's a place full of memories you're afraid to lose.
I was in that place. No amount of tears washed away the loneliness. No amount of screams chased it away. There were simply memories, an avalanche of memories that I desperately needed to hold onto.
There was so much that death didn't prepare me for. It didn't prepare me for the storm that would break my will. ~Hawthorn #Quote by R.K. Ryals
Crushes quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#143. Yesterday I visited the British Museum; an exceedingly tiresome affair. It quite crushes a person to see so much at once; and I wandered from hall to hall with a weary and heavy heart. The present is burdened too much with the past. #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Crushes quotes by John Updike
#144. Adversity in immunological doses has its uses; more than that crushes. #Quote by John Updike
Crushes quotes by Anna Banks
#145. As soon as she releases me, Galen grabs my hand and I don't even have time to gasp before he snatches me to the surface and pulls me toward shore, only pausing to dislodge his pair of swimming trunks from under his favorite rock, where he had just moments before taken the time to hide them.
I know the routine and turn away so he can change, but it seems like no time before he hauls me onto the beach and drags me to the sand dunes in front of my house. "What are we doing?" I ask. His legs are longer than mine so for every two of his strides I have to take three, which feels a lot like running.
He stops us in between the dunes. "I'm doing something that is none of anyone else's business." Then he jerks me up against him and crushes his mouth on mine. And I see why he didn't want an audience for this kiss. I wouldn't want an audience for this kiss, either, especially if the audience included my mother. This is our first kiss after he announced that he wanted me for his mate. This kiss holds promises of things to come.
When he pulls away I feel drunk and excited and nervous and filled with a craving that I'm not sure can ever be satisfied. And Galen looks startled. "Maybe I shouldn't have done that," he says. "That makes it about fifty times harder to leave, I think."
He tucks my head under his chin and I wrap my arms around him until both our breathing returns to normal. I take the time to soak in his scent, his warmth, the hard contours of his-well, his ever #Quote by Anna Banks
Crushes quotes by Jesse Andrews
#146. [Earl, on liking someone] Because, honestly, the rational part of me know for a rock-solid fact that I would never, ever get with Madison Hartner. But that was just the rational part of me. There's always a stupid irrational part of you, too, and you can't get rid of it. You can never completely kill off that tiny absurd spark of hope that this girl-against all odds, although she could date any guy at school, not to mention guys at college, and even though you look like the Oatmeal Monster and are a compulsive eater and suffer from constant congestion and say so many stupid things per day that it seems like a Stupid Things company is paying you to do it- this girl might like you. #Quote by Jesse Andrews
Crushes quotes by Becky Albertalli
#147. It's not about the sex, exactly. It's the other stuff. Here's the truth: I want ths so badly, To the point where it's almost physically painful sometimes. I want Olivia's soft voiced conversations with Evan Schulmeister, where she takes five steps away from us before she even answers the phone. Just to be alone with him. And I want the palpable waves of electric crush energy that radiate off Cassie these days. I want to know what it feels like to have crushes that could conceivably one day turn into boyfriends. #Quote by Becky Albertalli
Crushes quotes by Ernesto Sabato
#148. Get a move on, Perico, and go ask him for the battery charger," and the apprentice hurried out, but everything was like a dream and what was the point of any of it: battery chargers, wrenches, mechanics, and he felt sorry for the terrified little boy because, he thought, all of us are dreaming and why punish kids and why fix cars and have crushes on nice boys and then get married and have children who also dream that they're alive, who have to suffer, go off to war or fight or give up hope all on account of mere dreams. He was simply drifting along now, like a boat without a crew swept along by shifting currents, and moving mechanically like those invalids who have lost almost all will and consciousness and yet allow themselves to be moved by the nurses and obey the instructions they are given with the obscure remains of that will and that consciousness without knowing why. The 493, he thought, I go as far as Chacarita and then I take the subway to Florida and then I walk from there to the hotel. So he got on the 493 and mechanically asked for a ticket, and for half an hour continued to see ghosts dreaming of things that kept them very busy; at the Florida stop he went out the exit on the Calle San Martin, walked along the Corrientes to Reconquista and from there headed for the Warszawa rooming house, Accommodations for Gentlemen, went up dirty, dilapidated stairs to the fourth floor, and threw himself on the wretched bed as though he had been wandering through labyrinths for #Quote by Ernesto Sabato
Crushes quotes by Jerry Siegel
#149. Clark Kent grew not only out of my private life, but also out of Joe Shuster's. As a high school student, I thought that someday I might become a reporter, and I had crushes on several attractive girls who either didn't know I existed or didn't care I existed. #Quote by Jerry Siegel

Crushes quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#152. He was one of those people who made you feel like they either didn't know or didn't care that you were in the room and if they ever did acknowledge your existence it was bizarrely score one to you, and twenty years later they'd tell you they'd always had a crush on you but never had the courage to say anything and you'd tell them, What? I didn't even think you liked me? and they'd say, Are you crazy? I just never knew what to say! #Quote by Cecelia Ahern

Crushes quotes by Orson Scott Card
#158. Which of you is without sin? Let him cast the first stone." The people are abashed, and they forget their unity of purpose in the memory of their own individual sins. Someday, they think, I may be like this woman, and I'll hope for forgiveness and another chance. I should treat her the way I wish to be treated. As they open their hands and let the stones fall to the ground, the rabbi picks up one of the fallen stones, lifts it high over the woman's head, and throws it straight down with all his might. It crushes her skull and dashes her brains onto the cobblestones. "Nor am I without sin," he says to the people. "But if we allow only perfect people to enforce the law, the law will soon be dead, and our city with it. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Crushes quotes by Carol Lynch Williams
#159. An accident you're in? It marks you on the outside, maybe. Scars your face or your skin-breaks bones,crushes skulls,leaves the body changed.
An accident witnessed? You're different on the inside. Maybe there's no cut someone else can see, bu there're always injuries on the inside.
Those take a long time to heal. #Quote by Carol Lynch Williams
Crushes quotes by Ethlie Ann Vare
#160. Just because something is addictive doesn't mean that you will get addicted to it. But ... if your stomach ties up in knots while you count the seconds waiting for a phone call from that special someone ... if you hear a loud buzzing in your ears when you see a certain person's car (or one just like it) ... if your eyes burn when you hear a random love song or see a couple holding hands ... if you suffer the twin agonies of craving for and withdrawing from a series of unrequited crushes or toxic relationships ... if you always feel like you're clutching at someone's ankle and dragged across the floor as they try to leave the room ... welcome to the club. #Quote by Ethlie Ann Vare

On that day,
That feeling will have gone away. #Quote by Joyce Rachelle

Crushes quotes by Sarah Winman
#168. ..How the numbness in my fingertips travelled to my heart and I never even knew it.

I had crushes, I had lovers, I had orgasms. My trilogy of desire, I liked to call it, but I'd no great love after him, not really. Love and sex became separated by a wide river and one the ferryman refused to cross. #Quote by Sarah Winman

Crushes quotes by Liz Czukas
#171. It doesn't matter if it's the real world or fictional," I insisted. "Crushes are the best part of liking someone, and they are completely safe. You get all the benefits of fantasising about someone, but none of the he-loves-me-he-loves-me-not drama. It's all the good parts with none of the parts that make you lie awake at night all angsty. #Quote by Liz Czukas
Crushes quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Crushes quotes by Kevyn Aucoin

Crushes quotes by Bella Jewel
#176. I'm lying down, light on, just staring at the roof when my door opens. I lift my head to see Jackson standing at the door, shirtless, panting, and giving me a stare so hungry it has me clenching my legs together to stop the ache. He walks in, stopping at the edge of the bed and looking down at me.
"Jackson, what…"
"You kiss a man, you do it fuckin' properly." The he leans down, scoops my head up in his arm gently, and crushes his lips against mine. #Quote by Bella Jewel

#179. I think in general in my teens I had a lot of crushes on men on the Internet, most notably Momus since I was in my late teens. John Darnielle was also another big crush. #Quote by Marie Calloway
Crushes quotes by Courtney M. Privett
#180. Sometimes we try to do the right thing and instead the world laughs as it crushes our hopeful dreams. #Quote by Courtney M. Privett
Crushes quotes by Shannon Messenger
#181. Don't you miss when crushes were only silly, secret things?" she asked quietly. "Suddenly it's getting all so...real - and not just because of this. I mean...Fitz already finished filling out his matchmaking packet. And you probably need to go pick up yours - if you haven't already. #Quote by Shannon Messenger
Crushes quotes by Corinne Michaels
#182. His lips inch closer to mine and his words are soft and dripping with honesty. "You're never lost, Catherine. I'll always find you." His mouth crushes down on mine as his words resonate through me, bringing tears to my eyes. And there he is - my hero. #Quote by Corinne Michaels
Crushes quotes by Becky Albertalli
#183. I mean, here's the thing I don't get. How do people come to expect that their crushes will be reciprocated? Like, how does that get to be your default assumption? #Quote by Becky Albertalli
Crushes quotes by Katie Heaney
#184. A person cannot take the strain of maintaining lifelong crushes on every last celebrity who has ever graced her adolescent walls. We all have our reasons to let them go: They become sullen drug users, or they come out as gay, or we come out as gay, or they go and do something so terrible, so heinous, that we must forget that we were ever attracted to them in the first place. #Quote by Katie Heaney
Crushes quotes by Julia Bascom
#185. I have talents that I'm not supposed to have: I can tell who crushes on who by how they stand, I can read strides, I can hear the tonal differences between an alto and a soprano singing the same line so clearly that to me they sing entirely different notes, and I can read through the lines and tell when a person doesn't need to be writing at all. That, that is what makes me a snob, because I cannot abide a person putting pen to paper or fingers on keys when they don't need to, when word choice is not as relevant and demanding and essential to them as breathing and syntax is about being correct and not about being evocative. #Quote by Julia Bascom
Crushes quotes by Amanda Usen
#186. Crushes weren't made of quick and dirty; they were made of romance and fantasies. What would she do if he called her bluff? #Quote by Amanda Usen
Crushes quotes by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
#187. The mass is all which sets no value on itself--good or ill--based on specific grounds, but which feels itself "just like everything" ... The mass crushes beneath it everything which is different, everything that is excellent, individual, qualified and select. Anybody who is not like everybody, who does not think like everybody, runs the risk of being eliminated. #Quote by Jose Ortega Y Gasset
Crushes quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#188. It is not a true civilization, and has nothing in it to satisfy a mature and fully developed human mind. It is attuned to the mentality of the galley-slave and the moron, and crushes relentlessly with disapproval, ridicule, and economic annihilation any sign of actually independent thought and civilised feeling whith chances to rise above its sodden level. It is a treadmill, squirrel-trap culture – drugged and frenzied with the hashish of industrial servitude and material luxury. It is wholly a material body-culture, and its symbol is the tiled bathroom and steam radiator rather than the Doric portico and the temple of philosophy. Its denizens do not live or know how to live. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Crushes quotes by Sophie Turner
#189. Obviously I've had crushes, and I've tried to make things work with people, but it doesn't when you're away so much. I like to think, 'Don't go looking for it; it'll happen when it wants to happen.' #Quote by Sophie Turner
Crushes quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#190. Laziness is almost as compelling as life. The new farce you're having to play crushes you with its banality, and all in all it takes more cowardice than courage to start all over again. #Quote by Louis Ferdinand Celine
Crushes quotes by John Arnott
#191. Forgiveness is the scent that the rose leaves on
the heel that crushes it. #Quote by John Arnott
Crushes quotes by Graham Coxon
#192. I think it's better if blokes can admit that they can have crushes on other blokes. I've probably had crushes but never really sexual crushes on men. #Quote by Graham Coxon
Crushes quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#193. Every hero is a Samson. The strong man succumbs to the intrigues of the weak and the many; and if in the end he loses all patience he crushes both them and himself. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Crushes quotes by Lindsay Paige
#194. Love can either heal or destroy. Love is so powerful that it can sweep you up like a leaf in the wind. Up and down, twirling here and there. Hitting objects that stand in the way, making you stronger.
And sometimes a hand catches the fragile leaf and crushes it. Love is beautiful as well. That hand could
catch that leaf and hold it like a baby bird. Stroke it with care. Love is powerful. A lesson I will never ever forget. #Quote by Lindsay Paige
Crushes quotes by Bowen Elizabeth
#195. He specialized in a particular kind of friendship with that eight-limbed, inscrutable, treacherous creature, the happily married coupe, adapting himself closely and lightly to the composite personality.

A peevish dead's absurd...ho much less humiliating for them both it would have been if she had taken a lover. #Quote by Bowen Elizabeth
Crushes quotes by Piper Kerman
#196. If he is a half-decent human being, he will find himself the object of crushes. If he is a cocky bastard, even more so. #Quote by Piper Kerman
Crushes quotes by Fitz-James O'Brien
#197. Let us drink deep brothers,' he cried, leaving off his strange anointment for a while, to lift a great glass, filled with sparkling liquor, to his lips. 'Let us drink to our approaching triumph. Let us drink to the great poison, Macousha. Subtle seed of Death, - swift hurricane that sweeps away Life, - vast hammer that crushes brain and heart and artery with its resistless weight, -I drink to it.'

'It is a noble concoction, Duke Balthazar,' said Madame Filomel, nodding in her chair as she swallowed her wine in great gulps. 'Where did you obtain it?'

'It is made,' said the Wondersmith, swallowing another great draught of wine ere he replied, 'in the wild woods of Guiana, in silence and in mystery. Only one tribe of Indians, the Macoushi Indians, know the secret. It is simmered over fires built of strange woods, and the maker of it dies in the making. The place, for a mile around the spot where it is fabricated, is shunned as accursed. Devils hover over the pot in which it stews; and the birds of the air, scenting the smallest breath of its vapour from far away, drop to earth with paralysed wings, cold and dead.'

'It kills, then, fast?' asked Kerplonne, the artificial-eye maker, - his own eyes gleaming, under the influence of the wine, with a sinister lustre, as if they had been fresh from the factory, and were yet untarnished by use.

'Kills?' echoed the Wondersmith, derisively; 'it is swifter than thunderbolts, stronger than lightni #Quote by Fitz-James O'Brien
Crushes quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#198. Man is busy driving his life, and forgets it has an end until he fatally crushes it into a pit #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Crushes quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#199. You must be drunk always. That is everything: the only question. Not to feel the horrible burden of Time that crushes your shoulders and bends you earthward, you must be drunk without respite. But drunk on what? On wine, on poetry, on virtue - take your pick. But be drunk. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Crushes quotes by Henry Cavill
#200. I still don't have any crushes on actresses or models. It's always been one of those things with girlfriends. They say, "Who's on your list?" What do you call it, the Get Out of Jail Free card? #Quote by Henry Cavill
