Daniela Sacerdoti Quotes

"Shes my salvation. I burn, shes water; I suffocate, shes air – I can just imagine, when I am one with her, how light will flood my eyes, how the night will part and let me out into the day. When I break her, the light she has inside will come out, like a seal breaks to reveal the hidden message – and shell have to share that light with me. Ill be saved, and shell be the one who falls. Ill burn her down; Ill kill her and give her life again. Ill be true to her. Ill never leave her, never."

Quotes About Happy Love Story

"My heart tells me to stop right here, to offer quiet benediction and call it the end. But the truth wont allow it. Because there is no end, happy or otherwise. Nothing is fixed, nothing solved. the facts, such as they are, finally spin off into the void of things missing, the inconclusiveness of us. Who are we? Where do we go? The ambiguity may be dissatisfying, even irritating, but this is a love story. There is no tidiness. Blame it on the human heart. One way or another, it seems, we all perform vanishing tricks, effacing history, locking up our lives and slipping day by day into the graying shadows. Our whereabouts are uncertain. All secrets lead to the dark, and beyond teh dark there is only maybe." - Author: Tim OBrien
