"The way we think may be completely different, but you and I are an ancient, archetypal couple, the original man and woman. We are the model for Adam and Eve. For all couples in love, there comes a moment when a man gazes at a woman with the very same kind of realization. It is an infinite helix, the dance of two souls resonating, like the twist of DNA, like the vast universe."
– Banana Yoshimoto

"Even when I have crushes on other men, I always see you in the curve of their eyebrows."
– Banana Yoshimoto

"In a world of locked rooms, the man with the key is king. And honey, you should see me in a crown."
– Jim Moriarty


I was so afraid that we would just keep colliding over and over again if we stayed together, and that eventually the impact would break me. But now I know I am like the blade and he is like the whetstone—

I am too strong to break so easily, and I become better, sharper, every time I touch him.

– Beatrice “Tris” Prior


"Is it more important to be pretty or to be intelligent?"

"To be intelligent."

"Was it always more important to you to be intelligent?"


"When did you change your mind."

"A year ago."

"Honey, you don’t drink poison and wait for it to kill your enemy. Stop hitting walls and plot your revenge."
– Galina “Red” Reznikov
