Emily Giffin Quotes About Having

Browse 6 famous quotes of Emily Giffin about Having.

"Anxiety was not an emotion I could ever remember feeling when I went out in New York, and I wondered why tonight felt so different. Maybe it was because I no longer had a boyfriend or fiance. I suddenly recognized that there was safety in having someone, as well as a lack of pressure to shine. Ironically, this had cultivated a certain free-spiritedness that had, in turn, allowed me to be the life of the party and hoard the affection of additional men....But that had all changed. I didn't have a boyfriend, a perfect figure, or alcohol-induced outrageousness to fall back on." ~ Emily Giffin

It is a fling- a fling just like he said last night- a fling with an ending yet to be determined. I feel relieved to have it defined" ~ Emily Giffin

And maybe making that choice again and again, day in and day out, year after year,says more about love than never having a choice to make at all." ~ Emily Giffin
