Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Geraldine McCaughrean
#1. It's true: Everyone needs a reason to stay alive
someone who justifies your existence. Someone who loves you. Not beyond all reason. Just loves you. Even just shows an interest. Even someone who doesn't exist, or isn't yours. No, no! They don't even have to love you! They just have to be there to love! Target for your arrows. Magnetic Pole to drag on your compass needle and stop it spinning and tell you where you're heading and ... Someone to soak up all the yearning. That's what I think. #Quote by Geraldine McCaughrean
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Wataru Watari
#2. Anyway. I think forcing yourself to keep up appearances and putting up this identity that isn't yours, a mask you don't wear when you're alone, is phony. If you have to do all that stuff to get someone to love you, then can you really say they love you and who you really are? Once you change yourself to win affection, to win love, I don't even know if you can still call you you. If you've built your relationship on pretense and lies, it'll probably fail in some way or another, and if you've fundamentally changed yourself, then it's not really you. #Quote by Wataru Watari
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Margaret Atwood
#3. What is it that I'll want from you? Not love: that would be too much to ask. Not forgiveness, which isn't yours to bestow. Only a listener, perhaps; only someone who will see me. Don't prettify me though, whatever else you do: I have no wish to be a decorated skull. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Shaila M. Abdullah
#4. How do you end a story that's not yours? Add another sentence where there is a pause? Infiltrate the story with a comma when really there should have been a period? Punctuate with an exclamation point where a period would have sufficed? What if you kill something breathing and breathe life into something the author wanted to eliminate? How do you get inside the mind of a person who isn't there? Fill the shoes of someone who will never again fill his own? #Quote by Shaila M. Abdullah
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Jennifer James
#5. What choices are you making in your perception of the events around you? We choose how we view our times. There is a pinch of pessimism in our culture now. Counter it with small acts of optimism. Pick up a piece of litter that isn't yours. Show some extra grace on the freeway. Give to your food bank. Smile at a child who is in your way. Help someone you know. Help someone you don't know. The accumulation of small, optimistic acts produces quality in our culture and in your life. Our culture resonates in tense times to individual acts of grace. What's your choice? #Quote by Jennifer James
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Elly Blake
#6. How did you find me?"
He unclenched his jaw to answer. "When Wheatgerm returned to the stables, I followed her tracks until they disappeared. And then I heard someone bellowing nonsense, and I knew it must be you."
"Who the blazes is Wheatgerm?"
"The horse you stole from the abbey," he said as if talking to a simpleton.
"You mean Butter. And I didn't steal her. I borrowed her. I take it she's safe?"
"Cold and tired, but safe in the stables eating like she's half starved. Which she probably is, thanks to you. And her name isn't Butter."
"It is now."
"She's not yours to name."
"She's mine in spirit now that we've had an adventure together. And her name suits her. She's soft and yellow, like butter."
He made a disgusted sound. "If we all had names to suit us, you'd be called Thorn in My Backside. Or Plague of the Gods."
I prickled at his scathing tone. "And you'd be Miserable Blockhead."
"Is that the best you can do?"
"Give me time. I'm half frozen. #Quote by Elly Blake
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Bill Maher
#7. After September 11th, I never much liked the trend of everyone and his brother wearing the hats and jackets of the NYPD and FDNY. Only the people who do the job should get to wear the hat. Would you wear someone else's Medal of Honor?
Yes, it's a tribute, and sincere tribute is always appropriate for these brave people. But wearing their symbols is also rubbing off a piece of heroism that isn't yours. #Quote by Bill Maher
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Corey Ann Haydu
#8. We don't smile, but we something. We something. It hurts, the way a deep connection to someone who isn't yours sometimes does. #Quote by Corey Ann Haydu
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Melissa Pearl
#9. Just make sure you're fighting for the right stuff. Don't destroy yourself for something ... someone ... who isn't going to fight just as hard for you. #Quote by Melissa Pearl
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#10. People don't like us, my dear. The idea that someone who can play with their emotions, who can "mystically" get them to do certain things, makes them uncomfortable. What they do not realize - and what you must realize - is that manipulating is at the core of our social interaction. (...) Think about it. What is a man doing when he seeks the affection of a young lady? Why, he is trying to manipulate her to regard him favorably. What happens when two old friends sit down for a drink? They tell stories, trying to impress each other. Life as a human being is about posturing and influence. This isn't a bad thing, in fact, we depend upon it. These interactions teach us how to respond to others. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#11. I think that, generally, people of the world typify a "free and wild" person as someone who's uprooted, detached and uninhibited. But I don't believe in that kind of freedom. I think that's an infantile concept. Freedom means something when it has escaped something! Those people who escaped things - their inner cages, cages set by others around them - when those people are able to roam free and say, "This is who I am because this is who I choose to be", THAT is freedom. Freedom isn't being stupid; freedom is being so smart that you develop a strength strong enough to break free and become your own person. A better person than what your circumstances would like to define you as. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Joel Osteen
#12. Your job isn't to judge. - Your job isn't to figure out if someone deserves something or decide who is right or wrong. - Your job is to lift the fallen, restore the broken, and heal the hurting. #Quote by Joel Osteen
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Emm Roy
#13. I listen to the rain talk to the leaves. She tells a story of love and
leaving (isn't that always the story? Isn't that always the punchline?)
She tells it softly like someone who has recently lost something that
cannot be replaced. She closes her eyes and remembers. The leaves
quietly wait. They love in silence. They understand in the dark. And I
too begin to understand. We are all part pouring rain, part fallen
leaves. We are all part of the world, and we all have a story. #Quote by Emm Roy
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Iris Ann Hunter
#14. One night.
One night for myself is all I wanted.
One night with someone who isn't determined to completely destroy me.
But that's gone now. #Quote by Iris Ann Hunter
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Anton Szandor LaVey
#15. What is there to see if I go outside? Don't tell me. I know. I can see other people. I don't want to see other people. They look awful. The men look like slobs and the women look like men. The men have mush faces framed by long hair and the women have big noses, big jaws, big heads, and stick-like bodies. That depresses me. Its no fun to people-watch anymore because there's so little variety in types.

You say it's good to get a change of scenery. What scenery? New buildings? New cars? New freeways? New shopping malls? Go to the woods or a park? I saw a tree once. The new ones look the same, which is fine. I even remember what the old ones look like. My memory isn't that short. But it's not worth going to see a squirrel grab a nut, or fish swimming around in a big tank if I must put up with the ugly contemporary human pollution that accompanies each excursion. The squirrel may enliven me and remind me of better vistas but the price in social interaction isn't worth it. If, on my way to visit the squirrel, I encounter a single person who gains stimulation by seeing me, I feel like I have given more than I've received and I get sore.

If every time I go somewhere to see a fish swimming, I become someone else's stimulation, I feel shortchanged. I'll buy my own fish and watch it swim. Then, I can watch the fish, the fish can watch me, we can be friends, and nobody else interferes with the interaction, like trying to hear what the fish and I are talking about. #Quote by Anton Szandor LaVey
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Liz Phair
#16. Isn't this the best part of breakin' up? Finding someone else you can't get enough of. Someone who wants to be with you, too. #Quote by Liz Phair
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Erica Jong
#17. And what about ageing? Do men force the fear of ageing upon us
or are we ourselves terrified because we only know one kind of power
the power of youthful beauty?
Isn't it possible that if we became comfortable with other forms of female power, men might too? In her wonderful futurist novel, He, She, and It, Marge Piercy imagines a cyborg who is taught to love the bodies of older women. A delicious proposal
because it tells that whatever we may imagine can come true. Women often hate their own bodies. Sometimes I think that the most important things about having at least one relationship with someone of your own gender
especially if you are a woman
is to confront the female self-hatred and turn it into self-love. #Quote by Erica Jong
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by William Faulkner
#18. It isn't yours nor his nor the Pope's hell that we are all going to: it's my mother's and her mother's and father's and their mother's and father's hell, and it isn't you who are going there, but we, the three - no: four of us. And so at least we will all be together where we belong, since even if only he went there we would still have to be there too since the three of us are just illusions that he begot, and your illusions are a part of you like your bones and flesh and memory And we will all be together in torment and so we will not need to remember love and fornication, and maybe in torment you cannot even remember why you are there. And if we cannot remember all this, it cant be much torment. #Quote by William Faulkner
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Yato-Noragami
#19. Someone Who Chooses To Kill Himself Isn't Cut Out For Love! #Quote by Yato-Noragami
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Molly Quinn
#20. I really want to do a dark character. Not really a bad guy, but someone dark and mysterious. Where everyone says, 'Ooh, it has to be her!' and at the end you find out it isn't. Just someone who looks guilty. #Quote by Molly Quinn
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Eliza Engellenner
#21. He may still love you. He probably does. He probably doesn't know what he wants. He probably still thinks about you all the time. But that isn't what matters. What matters is what he's doing about it, and what he's doing about it is nothing. And if he's doing nothing, you most certainly shouldn't do anything. You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life. #Quote by Eliza Engellenner
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Robert Breault
#22. Optimist: someone who isn't sure whether life is a tragedy or a comedy but is tickled silly just to be in the play. #Quote by Robert Breault
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Michael  Grant
#23. Drake's dead," Astrid said. "Dead people don't come back. Let's not be ridiculous."
Howard made a derisive snort. "Okay. That's as far as I go with you on this, Sammy boy." He made a hand-washing gesture.
Astrid slammed her palm on the table, surprising even herself. "Somebody better tell me what all these back-and-forth looks are about."
"Brittney," Howard said, spitting the name out like it was poison. "She came back. Sam had her and stuck her with Brianna, and told me not to talk about it."
"Brittney?" Astrid said, confused.
Howard said, "Yeah. You know, like dead-girl Brittney? Way dead? Dead a long time and buried a long time and suddenly she's sitting in my house chatting? That Brittney."
"I'm still not…"
"Well, Astrid," Howard said, "I guess we just found the limits of your big old genius brain. Point is that someone who was very seriously dead is suddenly not so dead anymore."
"But…," Astrid started. "But Drake…"
"As dead as Brittney," Howard said. "Which might be a slight problem, since Brittney isn't exactly dead herself. #Quote by Michael Grant
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Jim Butcher
#24. Here had lived someone else who knew that the only thing waiting at home was a sense of loneliness.
Sometimes it is comforting.
Most often, it isn't. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Elle Kennedy
#25. Isabel, do you really think I'd sleep with someone who..." He trailed off, suddenly feeling awkward.
"Someone who what?"
Trevor let out a ragged breath. "Who isn't you."
Her mouth formed a cute little O.
"You are the one I want," he reiterated. #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Randall Jarrell
#26. I don't need to praise anything so justly famous as Frost 's observation of and empathy with everything in Nature from a hornet to a hillside; and he has observed his own nature, one person's random or consequential chains of thoughts and feelings and perceptions, quite as well. (And this person, in the poems, is not the "alienated artist" cut off from everybody who isn't, yum-yum, another alienated artist; he is someone like normal people only more so a normal person in the less common and more important sense of normal . #Quote by Randall Jarrell
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Samantha Young
#27. Cole: "One day you'll meet someone you can stand to commit to, and I'll meet someone who isn't batshit crazy."
Hannah: "Oh, you dreamer you. #Quote by Samantha Young
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Veronica Roth
#28. Do you think I'm important to the Dauntless? Because I'm not. I'm just someone who isn't afraid of much. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#29. Travis nursed his beer silently, looking out over the water.
"What are you thinking about?" Laird asked.
"It's not important."
"What is it?"
Travis turned toward him. "Did you ever notice how some colours are used for people's names but others aren't?"
"What are you talking about?"
"White and Black. Like Mr. White, the guy who owns the tire store. And Mr. Black, our third-grade teacher. Or even Mr. Green from the game Clue. But you never hear of someone named Mr. Orange or Mr. Yellow. It's like some colours make good names, but other colours just sound stupid. You know what I mean?"
"I can't say I've ever thought about it."
"Me neither. Not until just a minute ago, I mean. But it's kind of strange, isn't it?"
"Sure," Laird finally agreed.
Both men were quiet for a moment. "I told you it wasn't important."
"Yes, you did."
"Was I right?"
"Yep. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Carol S. Dweck
#30. But isn't potential someone's capacity to develop their skills with effort over time? And that's just the point. How can we know where effort and time will take someone? Who #Quote by Carol S. Dweck
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Harry Browne
#31. Harry's letter to his daughter:

If I could give you just one thing, I'd want it to be a simple truth that took me many years to learn. If you learn it now, it may enrich your life in hundreds of ways. And it may prevent you from facing many problems that have hurt people who have never learned it.

The truth is simply this: No one owes you anything.


How could such a simple statement be important? It may not seem so, but understanding it can bless your entire life.

No one owes you anything.

It means that no one else is living for you, my child. Because no one is you. Each person is living for himself; his own happiness is all he can ever personally feel.

When you realize that no one owes you happiness or anything else, you'll be freed from expecting what isn't likely to be.

It means no one has to love you. If someone loves you, it's because there's something special about you that gives him happiness. Find out what that something special is and try to make it stronger in you, so that you'll be loved even more.

When people do things for you, it's because they want to - because you, in some way, give them something meaningful that makes them want to please you, not because anyone owes you anything.

No one has to like you. If your friends want to be with you, it's not out of duty. Find out what makes others happy so they'll want to be near you.
#Quote by Harry Browne
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Marianne Williamson
#32. Usually, when we think of power, we think of external power. And we think of powerful people as those who have made it in the world. A powerful woman isn't necessarily someone who has money, but we think of her as someone with a boldness or a spark that makes her manifest in a dramatic way. When we think of a powerful man, we think of his ability to manifest abundance, usually money, in the world.
Most people say that a powerful woman does best with a powerful man, that she needs someone who understands the bigness of her situation, a man who can meet her at the same or even greater level of power in the world.
Now this is true, if power is defined as material abundance. A woman often faces cultural prejudice when she makes more money than a man, as does he. A woman who defines power by worldly standards can rarely feel totally relaxed in the arms of a man who doesn't have it.
If power is seen as an internal matter, then the situation changes drastically. Internal power has less to do with money and worldly position, and more to do than with emotional expansiveness, spirituality and conscious living…
I used to think I needed a powerful man, someone who could protect me from the harshness and evils of the world. What I have come to realize is that…the powerful man I was looking for would be foremost, someone who supported me in keeping myself on track spiritually, and in so maintaining clarity within myself, that life would present fewer problems. When it #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Billy Graham
#33. When we grieve over someone who has died in Christ, we are sorrowing not for them but for ourselves. Our grief isn't a sign of weak faith, but of great love. #Quote by Billy Graham
Loving Someone Who Isnt Yours quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#34. Drawing near the family parlor, Marcus paused beside the half-open door as he heard his mother lecturing the Bowman sisters. Her complaint appeared to hinge upon the sisters' habit of speaking to the footmen who served them at the dinner table.
"But why shouldn't I thank someone for doing me a service?" he heard Lillian ask with genuine perplexity. "It's polite to say thank you, isn't it?"
"You should no more thank a servant than you would thank a horse for allowing you to ride it, or a table for bearing the dishes you place upon it."
"Well, we're not discussing animals or inanimate objects, are we? A footman is a person."
"No," the countess said coldly. "A footman is a servant."
"And a servant is a person," Lillian said stubbornly.
The elderly woman replied in exasperation. "Whatever your view of a footman is, you must not thank him at dinner. Servants neither expect nor desire such condescension, and if you insist on putting them in the awkward position of having to respond to your remarks, they will think badly of you…as will everyone else. Do not insult me with that vapid stare, Miss Bowman! You come from a family of means - surely you employed servants at your New York residence!"
"Yes," Lillian acknowledged pertly, "but we talked to ours. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
