Honest critique is a pillar of patriotism. — Charles M. Blow

Avoidance In Love Quotes By Emily Andrews

My mother's mouth drops. 'Emmy...don't say those things Emmy. Remember, we don't talk about those things.'

'Yes Mom. I remember. That's why I'm here, looking like this.'

An orderly knocks on the door and announces that visiting time is over.

My mother and I look at each other awkwardly, and hug.

'I love you,' she says.

'I love you too, Mom.'

'You aren't telling them too much are you?' she asks, afraid.

I sign. 'No Mommy, I'm not.'

She's visibly relieved. She leaves the room.

The orderley comes back and escorts me back into the main room.

I just sit and laugh to myself."

(after Emmy's suicide attempt) ~ The Finer Points of Becoming Machine — Emily Andrews

Avoidance In Love Quotes By Jessica Thompson

I'm cautious with the love word because I really know what it means. I've been there, done that and I know what the implications are.

Avoidance In Love Quotes By Gail Carriger

She wondered if the immortal's avoidance of life's ugliness was a matter of survival or bigotry.

They were only butterflies, after all. — Gail Carriger

Avoidance In Love Quotes By Jack Campbell

Unfortunately, he had no training in the healers' arts. But if he ever encountered the person who had struck Mechanic Mari like that, Alain knew he would use the skills he did have to even the score. He did not know why he resolved to do that, but he did.
At least he was fairly sure that his reason was not love. Whatever love was, other than something to be avoided. Master Mechanic Mari had shown clear signs of being concerned when Alain spoke of it, and had denied experiencing love with other Mechanics, so perhaps Mechanics also were warned to avoid love. It must be a very dangerous thing. — Jack Campbell

Avoidance In Love Quotes By M. Leighton

Avoidance is never the answer. Yes, life is all about pain and trouble and frustration and anger, but it's also about love and friendship and good days and sunshine. You can't have one without the other. If you avoid pain, you avoid living. — M. Leighton
