"I don’t want to settle. I want mindfucking love. I want to spend all night thinking about kissing you, and when I finally get the guts to, I want to go deaf to everything but that moment. I refuse to settle for anything less."
"The thing is, anxiety is a total bastard. It shape-shifts. It finds a face and things to latch onto and then it multiplies the threat."
"I wish I’d tried harder not to mess things up because I was starting to realize that quiet, kind, special people come along once in a lifetime."
