Nora Roberts -- Heart of the Sea


HEART OF THE SEA -- NORA ROBERTS


When you forget what you have for what you've lost, grieving's an indulgence.
Without an eye on making a living, it's only a hobby, isn't it?

Is it so difficult to believe that more exists than what you can touch?
It's so easy for love to hide itself under passion and not be recognized.

Busy hands kept the mind occupied so what was troubling it could stew and turn in the corners.

I've a great deal of respect for pride, but not when it's so costly.

"That's a large ambition."
"Why have small ones?"

The hotter the flame, the quicker it flashes, and the sooner it goes cold.

What's built isn't always of wood and stone, and still it lasts.

It goes that youth is wasted on the young, but I'm of a mind that the young waste youth.

A man can forget to look past beauty and into the heart.

Passion without love is short-lived.

A man can fall in love with a dream if he lets himself.

We all look. The lucky find. The wise accept.

Once you stop thinking of your heart as a weapon instead of a gift, you'll find what you're looking for.

Hearts can merge and the people who hold them still stand as they are. Love accepts that. It accepts everything.

I have an emptiness in me. A place that waits.

Sex might satisfy, food might fuel, love might sustain, but without coffee, what was the point?

The petty and jealous are rarely stupid. [** they are most often cunning]

I've learned, with pain, the power of words.

Am I only to be wanted for what can be seen?

Love is such a tangle.

Wanting's wanting, whatever the dream.

"Love's always miraculous."

Promise her this, offer her that, vow to give her the world, as the world's safe when you've plenty of it to spare. But you've only one heart, after all, and giving that is a more difficult deal.

Love was a jewel with too many facets to count. Strength and weakness running side by side through it. And that no one could give or take it with any less than an open hand.

How marvelous it was to have a friend who simply knew where the blame lay even before the offense was cited.

Need's the step between wanting and loving.

Waiting wears on the soul, and when you can nearly see the end of the waiting, it's harder still.
kaigachi is a conjugation of the Japanese term "kigaicha" or crazy. It roughly translates as "crazy about something."

"One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light but by making the darkness conscious." - C.Jung
