30 pieces of dating advice from literature

Blind Willow, Sleeping Women (Haruki Murakami)

Some gems from this link:

“I sometimes think that people’s hearts are like deep wells. Nobody knows what’s at the bottom. All you can do is imagine by what comes floating to the surface every once in a while.” – Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, Haruki Murakami

“Women fall in love when they get to know you. Men are just the opposite. When they finally know you they’re ready to leave.” — Dusk and Other Stories, James Salter

“The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person.” — Invisible Monsters, Chuck Palahniuk

“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.” — The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

“The only obsession everyone wants: ‘love.’ People think that in falling in love they make themselves whole? The Platonic union of souls? I think otherwise. I think you’re whole before you begin. And the love fractures you. You’re whole, and then you’re cracked open.”

And the love fractures you. You’re whole, and then you’re cracked open.” — The Dying Animal, Philip Roth

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
