Jennifer Sturman Quotes

"I cant today," I said. "Maybe tomorrow?""Cant tomorrow," said Quinn. "I have a family thing. I guess were logistically star-crossed, Juliet."Sometimes Quinn calls me Juliet because of how we had to do that scene together, and whenever he does its good for another bout of brain paralysis. So all I could manage back was "Oh.""But Ill talk to you later, okay?" he said.I didnt even try to say anything else but just nodded, wondering as I did what would happen next. The steps had largely emptied by then.But before I could do much wondering, Quinns lips were on mine.And this time it definitely counted."

Bela Bartok Quotes

Quotes About Sideburns

"I touched my lips to hers again, and this time, it was a very different sort of kiss. It was six years worth of kissing, her lips coming to life under mine, tasting of orange and of desire. Her fingers ran through my sideburns and into my hair before linking around my neck, alive and cool on my warm skin. I was wild and tame and pulled into shreds and crushed into being all at once. For once in my human life, my mind didnt wander to compose a song lyric or store the moment for later reflection. For once in my life, I was here and nowhere else. -Sam" - Author: Maggie Stiefvater

Quotes About Insistence

"It is often falsely assumed, even by feminists, that sexuality is the enemy of the female who really wants to develop these aspects of her personality, and this is perhaps the most misleading aspect of movements like the National Organization of Women.
