Eleanor & Park

  • "Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something."
  • "Holding Eleanor's hand was like holding a butterfly. Or a heartbeat. Like holding something complete, and completely alive."
  • "You're the kind of person I wanna be with when I want to be alone."
  • "I don't think I even breathe when we're not together. Which means, when I see you on Monday morning, it's been like sixty hours since I've taken a breath. That's probably why I'm so crabby, and why I snap at you. All I do when we're apart is think about you, and all I do when we're together is panic. Because every second feels so important."
  • "I want everyone to meet you. You're my favorite person of all time."
  • "It was the nicest thing she could imagine. It made her want to have his babies and give him both of her kidneys."
  • "You're the smartest girl I've ever met, and the funniest, and everything you do surprises me. And I wish I could say that those are the reasons I like you, because that would make me sound like a really evolved human being. But I think it's got as much to do with your hair being red and your hands being soft and the fact that you smell like homemade birthday cake."
