"Never forget the favors done for you. Always forget the favors you’ve done for others."
"I remember one morning getting up at dawn, there was such a sense of possibility. You know, that feeling? And I remember thinking to myself: So, this is the beginning of happiness. This is where it starts. And of course there will always be more. It never occurred to me it wasn’t the beginning. It was happiness. It was the moment. Right then."
— Clarissa Vaughan, The Hours (2002)
"If I know what love is, it is because of you."
"As we grow older together, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change… I will always keep falling in love with you."
"Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place."

"He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know where he ended and she began."
