Either way, I love you. #Quote by Jamie McGuire

Jamie Ford quotes by Jamie McGuire
#57. I've been on two tours. I've seen limbs blown off, bones protruding ... smashed, I've seen the incomplete bodies of children brought in and out of my helo. I've seen intestines on the outside of a man's body more than once. I've seen eyeballs hanging from their sockets. I've seen grown men bawling and begging for their moms to save them from the death they knew was just minutes away. I've seen horrible. The woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with died in my arms, and then again when I put a bullet in her brain. That was fucking gruesome. #Quote by Jamie McGuire
Jamie Ford quotes by E. Jamie
#58. What do you think you're doing?" She snapped, watching Alessandro pull back the covers and pull his legs in under the blankets. "I'm going to sleep, darling. I don't think any amorous advances would be welcome tonight seeing as you're in a bit of a snit, so 'night, darling." "Get out of this bed, right now or so help me, I will do something to you that will severely compromise your ability to father any more children." "Ah, so you admit that there will be more children for us?" He gave her a small smile. Bree came up on her elbows and narrowed her eyes. "Alessandro, go back to your coffee table." "No." "What do you mean, no? I'm furious with you. I don't want to sleep with you, now get out," "Let me put it another way, Sunshine," he reached over and tapped her nose playfully. "Not bloody hardly. I am paying for this room and that includes this bed." "Fine. Then I'll go somewhere else," Bree said, kicking the blanket off of her. Alessandro reached out a long leg and hooked it around one of hers, trapping her. "If you don't want me to tie you to this bed, you'll stay where you are. And you know how much I'd enjoy that. #Quote by E. Jamie

Jamie Ford quotes by Michele Jaffe
#75. Ford kept his hands on his head. "Is that really necessary? I was arrested by Serenity Services a week ago, and they didn't even cuff me."

Jamie Ford quotes by Richard Ford
#76. The kind of happy I was that day at the Vet when "Hawk" Dawson actually doffed his red "C" cap to me, and everyone cheered and practically convulsed into tears - you can't patent that. It was one shining moment of glory that was instantly gone. Whereas life, real life, is different and can't even be appraised as simply "happy", but only in terms of "Yes, I'll take it all, thanks" or "No, I believe I won't." Happy, as my poor father used to say, is a lot of hooey. Happy is a circus clown, a sitcom, a greeting card. Life, though, life's about something sterner. But also something better. A lot better. Believe me. #Quote by Richard Ford
