"How you live your life is your business. But remember, our hearts and our bodies are given to us only once. Most of us can't help but live as though we've got two lives to live, one is the mockup, the other is the finished version, and then there are all those versions in between. But there's only one, and before you know it, your heart is worn out, and, as for our body, there comes a point when no one looks at it, much less wants to come near it."

"In your place, if there is pain, nurse it, and if there is a flame, don't snuff it out, don't be brutal with it. Withdrawal can be a terrible thing when it keeps us awake at night, and watching other forget us sooner than we'd want to be forgotten is no better. We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything - what a waste!"

"Did I want him to act? Or would I prefer a lifetime of longing provided we both kept this little Ping-Pong game going: not knowing, not-not knowing, not-not-not knowing? Just be quiet, say nothing, and if you can't say "yes", don't say "no", say "later". Is this why people say "maybe" when they means "yes", but hope you think it's "no" when all they really mean is "Please, just ask me once more, and once more after that"?"

"(...) You realize love is not a tragedy or a failure, but a gift. You remember your first love beacause they show you, prove to you, that you can love and be loved, that nothing in this world is deserved except for love, that love is both how you become a person, and why."

"You'd think solving mysteries would bring you closure, that closing the loop would comfort and quiet your mind. But it neves does. The truth always disappoints. (...) You never really find answers, just new and deeper questions."

"Turns out there's a reason they call it falling in love, because when it happens - really happens - that's exactly how it feels. There's no doing or trying, you just let go and hope that someone's going to be there to catch you. Otherwise, you're going to end up with some pretty hefty bruises."

"They kiss, and kiss again. When they do finally pull apart, it's with a new knowledge. They have a sense that the lenght of a day is mutable, and you can never see the end from the beggining. They have a sense that love changes all things all the time. 

That's what love is for."

"Funny how things that once seemed so charming can become dull and annoying. We think we want all the time in the world with the people we love, but maybe what we need is the opposite. Just a finite amount of time, so we till think the other person is interesting. Maybe we don't need acts two and three. Maybe love is best in act one."

"There's a Japanese phase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn't mean love at first sight. It's closer to love at second sight. It's the feeling when you meet someone that you're going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don't love them right away, but it's inevitable that you will."

"The half-life of a substance is the time it takes for it to lose one hal of its inicial value. (...)

In love, it's the amount of time it takes for lovers to feel half of what they once did.

When Natasha thinks about love, this is what she thinks: nothing lasts forever. Like hydrogen-7 or lithium-5 or boron-7, love has an infinitesimally small half-life that decays to nothing. And when it's gone, it's like it was never there at all."
