She stared at herself in the thousand pieces of the mirror.† In the candlelight her skin was the unreal color of wax statues.† Miguel began to caress her and she saw her face transformed in the kaleidoscope of the mirror, and she finally believed that she was the most beautiful woman in the universe because she was able to see herself with Miguelís eyes.
I spent it sitting next to Rosaís tomb, speaking with her, accompanying her on the first part of her journey to the Hereafter, which is when itís hardest to detach yourself from earth and you need the love of those who have remained behind, so you can leave with at least the consolation of having planted something in someone elseís heart
I didnít need another fling. God knows Iíve had too many of those, too many good things which have ended badly and too many people who I thought meant more. All I want is someone whoíll give back all the love Iíve given. Thatís all I want because I know thatís what I deserve.
appreciate the moment of a first kiss, it may be the last time you own your heart.
She beautifies my disillusioned brain.† Sheís like my fairy godmother.† For the last fifteen years, sheís called me every morning, and she makes me repeat after her: ĎThis is the best day of my life.† Iím a genius.† I love people and people love me.† I never criticize, condemn, or complain.† Everyone I meet today is loving and respectful.† I love God and God loves me.
Young men are all very well in their place, but it doesnít do to drag them into everything, does it?
Donít ever kid yourself about loving some one.† It is just that most people are not lucky enough ever to have it.† You never had it before and now you have it.† What you have with Maria, whether it lasts just through today and a part of tomorrow, or whether it lasts for a long life is the most important thing that can happen to a human being.† There will always be people who say it does not exist because they cannot have it.† But I tell you it is true and that you have it and that you are lucky even if you die tomorrow
Human nature is so well disposed towards those who are in interesting situations, that a young person either marries or dies is sure of being kindly spoken of.
Anything or anyone that does not make you feel alive is too small for you
Youíre worth the whole damn bunch put together
