Desperately Wanting quotes by Brennan Manning
#2. And Grace calls out, 'You are not just a disillusioned old man who may die soon, a middle-aged woman stuck in a job and desperately wanting to get out, a young person feeling the fire in the belly begin to grow cold. You may be insecure, inadequate, mistaken or potbellied. Death, panic, depression, and disillusionment may be near you. But you are not just that. You are accepted.' Never confuse your perception of yourself with the mystery that you really are accepted. #Quote by Brennan Manning

#5. When you're in a two-shot together, you can't be the same as when you're both in singles. Try as you will, it cannot be the same as when you're in the shot together. It simply cannot be. It's physically impossible. You're behind the camera desperately wanting to help your colleague. When it's just you, on your own, it can be self-conscious in a way that you're not when we're just talking, you and I, and then all of a sudden it's me and then it's you. The two-shots were probably more natural. #Quote by Tom Courtenay

#9. Emma: What do you want from me, Jules? What do you want me to do?

To be tortured al the time, night and day, desperately wanting what you know you should never want, what doesn't even want you back. to know how it feels to understand that a decision you made when you were twelve years old means you can never have the one thing that would make you truly happy. I want you to dream about only one thing and want onlny one thing and obsess about only one thing like I do ...
Emma: Julian...
Jules: ... like I do with you! Like I do with you, Emma. I thought you loved me. I don't know how I got that so wrong. #Quote by Cassandra Clare

Desperately Wanting quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#16. You're beautiful, every part of you. I love your hair, the way it looks, the way it feels. I love touching it, smelling it. I love the way you wrinkle your nose when you laugh. It makes me laugh, too, every time. And I love watching you eat. Sometimes you can't shovel it in fast enough, but when you get interested in a conversation, you forget there's anything in front of you. God knows, I love making love with you. I can't even talk about that without wanting you. I love your pathetic attachment to those seniors. I love how hard you work. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Desperately Wanting quotes by Kirk  Marshall

So if any of this gets out of hand, or collapses to pillars of bromide and dust, or our solitary struggle is cheapened and dashed, I'll die knowing we were all stupid in stupid togetherness, and the allure, lustre, good in that phrase consoles my wanting spirit, that we made it all too messy, but kicked out the jams in the process. #Quote by Kirk Marshall

"I was a soldier of the Order," I said wearily. "He's the leader of a rogue dragon underground. I'm sure I've killed a few of his dragons in the past."I'm also stupidly in love with the girl he considers his, and we both know it. #Quote by Julie Kagawa
Desperately Wanting quotes by Taylor Jenkins Reid
#20. Because one minute you're just trying to nurse a wound. And the next, you're desperately trying to hide the fact that you're now a jury-rigged, taped-up, short-cutted mess of a person and the wound you were nursing has become an abscess. #Quote by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Desperately Wanting quotes by Karan Bajaj
#22. The moment you enter Bhutan, you notice that there are no traffic lights. It is almost like you've stepped into a Shangri-La or a vortex of time 200 years ago.

Bro, TMI!
Bronagh didn't bat an eyelid. "Why not do both?"
Sis, TMI!
"That right there," Dominic snapped his fingers, "that's why I love you #Quote by L.A. Casey
Desperately Wanting quotes by Julie Buxbaum
#26. A year later we were in a coffee shop, the kind taking a last stand against Starbucks with its thrift-store chairs, vegan cookies, and over-promising teas with names like Serenity and Inner Peace. I was curled up with a stack of causes, trying to get in a few extra hours of work over the weekend, and Andrew sat with one hand gripping his mug, his nose in The New York Times; the two of us a parody of the yuppie couple of the new millennium. We sat silently that way, though there wasn't silence at all. On top of the typical coffee-shop sounds - the whir of an expresso machine, the click of the cash register, the bell above the door - Andrew was making his noises, an occasional snort at something he read in the paper, the jangle of his keys in his pocket, a sniffle since he was getting over a cold, a clearing of his throat. And as we sat there, all I could do was listen to those Andrew-specific noises, the rhythm of his breath, the in-out in-out, its low whistle. Snort. Jangle. Sniffle. Clear.

Hypnotized. I wanted to buy his soundtrack.

This must be what love is, I thought. Not wanting his noises to ever stop. #Quote by Julie Buxbaum
Desperately Wanting quotes by Jojo Moyes
#27. And she deserved it, didn't she? She had told herself, desperately trying to rationalize the hurt she was about to cause. She was allowed another chance? Why should she have to give up on romantic love at the age of thirty-five? #Quote by Jojo Moyes
Desperately Wanting quotes by Aurora Rose Reynolds
#28. I need to get home," …
"I don't want to let you go," he says, and I know in that moment I could get lost in him.
"Then don't." I close my eyes again, not wanting him to see that I really mean Don't let me go, ever.
"I don't plan on it." he tips my head down so he can press a sweet kiss to my forehead. #Quote by Aurora Rose Reynolds
Desperately Wanting quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel
#29. We become actors without realizing it, and actors without wanting to. #Quote by Henri Frederic Amiel
Desperately Wanting quotes by Karina Halle
#30. You know what your real problem is, sweetheart?"
"What?" I ask, wanting to know and scared of the answer.
"You're totally underfucked," he says, his voice dropping a register. He leans in closer. "And I'm the one who can tip the scales in the other direction. #Quote by Karina Halle
Desperately Wanting quotes by Kathleen Tessaro
#31. Easing back in her seat, Grace watched the children in the playground opposite, coats off, faces flushed, laughing hysterically with pleasure. They were so vividly alive, completely immersed in the game. She tried to recall a time when she'd been that way and realized she couldn't remember when that had been. She'd lost the knack of forgetting herself. Instead she seemed to look down on herself throughout the day, scrutinizing, judging; finding herself wanting more. #Quote by Kathleen Tessaro
Desperately Wanting quotes by Virginia Woolf
#32. Even things in a book-case change if they are alive; we find ourselves wanting to meet them again; we find them altered #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Desperately Wanting quotes by Brian Hugh Warner

Desperately Wanting quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#36. The ancient Sanskrit legends speak of a destined love, a karmic connection between souls that are fated to meet and collide and enrapture one another. The legends say that the loved one is instantly recognised because she's loved in every gesture, every expression of thought, every movement, every sound, and every mood that prays in her eyes. The legends say that we know her by her wings - the wings that only we can see - and because wanting her kills every other desire of love. #Quote by Gregory David Roberts
Desperately Wanting quotes by N. T. Wright
#37. (a) God intended Jesus to die as the climax of his rescue operation; (b) the intentions and actions that sent Jesus to his death were desperately wicked. This doesn't for a moment justify the wickedness. Rather, it declares that God, knowing how powerful that wickedness was, had long planned to nullify its power by taking its full force upon himself, in the person of his Messiah, the man in whom God himself would be embodied. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Desperately Wanting quotes by Sai Marie Johnson
#38. Oh, was that what you meant? I figured you were speaking of your manner of whoring. I should have known you were wanting to fuck me too. #Quote by Sai Marie Johnson
Desperately Wanting quotes by Sania Mirza
#39. You want to try and win as many slams as possible in your career. As a tennis player, that's what we always dream of as a kid, wanting to play slams, wanting to win them. #Quote by Sania Mirza
Desperately Wanting quotes by Tyler Joseph
#40. Josh is the guy in the band who's just so friendly and super, wanting to walk up to you and say, 'Hey, I'm Josh. I drum in this band, and I'm a big fan of you, and I really appreciate what you do.' Josh has all these great friends in the industry now. #Quote by Tyler Joseph
Desperately Wanting quotes by Francis Galton
#41. People lay too much stress on apparent specialities, thinking overrashly that, because a man is devoted to some particular pursuit, he could not possibly have succeeded in anything else. They might just as well say that, because a youth had fallen desperately in love with a brunette, he could not possibly have fallen in love with a blonde. He may or may not have more natural liking for the former type of beauty than the latter, but it is as probable as not that the affair was mainly or wholly due to a general amorousness of disposition. It is just the same with special pursuits. A gifted man is often capricious and fickle before he selects his occupation, but when it has been chosen, he devotes himself to it with a truly passionate ardour. After a man of genius has selected his hobby, and so adapted himself to it as to seem unfitted for any other occupation in life, and to be possessed of but one special aptitude, I often notice, with admiration, how well he bears himself when circumstances suddenly thrust him into a strange position. He will display an insight into new conditions, and a power of dealing with them, with which even his most intimate friends were unprepared to accredit him. #Quote by Francis Galton
Desperately Wanting quotes by Ron Reagan
#42. He never stopped wanting to save the world. #Quote by Ron Reagan
Desperately Wanting quotes by Alan Judd
#43. Brings [O'Brian's] achievement to a new height ... Such is O'Brian's power to possess the imagination that I found I was living in his world as much as my own, wanting to know what happens next. That is the real test. Any contemporary novelist should recognize in Patrick O'Brian a Master of the Art. #Quote by Alan Judd
Desperately Wanting quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#44. To me it seems that those sciences are vain and full of error which are not born of experience, mother of all certainty, first-hand experience which in its origins, or means, or end has passed through one of the five senses. And if we doubt the certainty of everything which passes through the senses, how much more ought we to doubt things contrary to these senses – ribelli ad essi sensi – such as the existence of God or of the soul or similar things over which there is always dispute and contention. And in fact it happens that whenever reason is wanting men to cry out against one another, which does not happen with certainties. For this reason we shall say that where the cry of controversy is heard, there is no true science, because the truth has one single end and when this is published, argument is destroyed for ever. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Desperately Wanting quotes by R.L. Mathewson
#45. Did wanting a man she was pissed at make her a slut? #Quote by R.L. Mathewson
Desperately Wanting quotes by John Legend
#46. As a politician, you have to deal with someone wanting you to fail every day. I think I prefer being in a situation where generally people are rooting for me, and if they aren't rooting for me, they aren't out there to see my downfall. I respect the people who have the stomach for it. #Quote by John Legend
Desperately Wanting quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#47. Countless millions of people live in self-protective mode every day. They're afraid to love and to be loved because they're terrified of being taken. They're desperately afraid of getting trampled, since all of us, to one degree or another, have been trampled in the past. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Desperately Wanting quotes by Christian Tissier
#48. Wanting to become stronger than everybody else has no meaning. #Quote by Christian Tissier
Desperately Wanting quotes by Diane Von Furstenberg
#49. I was a very young girl and I got into fashion very much by accident, wanting to be independent. What was wonderful was that while I was learning and discovering - learning about the work, discovering myself as a woman - I was allowing other women to feel the same way. #Quote by Diane Von Furstenberg
