Top 16 of 2016: Favorite Quotes

Hey, everyone!

I'm so excited to participate in Kimberly Faye Reads' Top 16 of 2016 event! Today's topic is favorite quotes of 2016, and wow, this one was tough. Let's jump right in!

Much like yesterday, these aren't in any sort of order until numbers five to one.


The magic is in the tiny moments. The small touches, the gentle smiles, the quiet laughs. The magic is about living for today and allowing yourself to breathe and be happy.


Tops come off at the oddest times. Like, oh, hey, the music started? Let me rip my top off and shake what my mama gave me.
Or my plastic surgeon. Same difference. 


To be a muse is to be a wonder in someone else's eyes, flaws and all.


Maybe he thinks I've insulted his manhood. I consider his manhood - and how much I hate the word manhood. In Alex's case, bigger is awesome. The only drawback is how hard it is to walk after his manhood plunders my womanhood.
I need to cut it with the historical romance references.

*giggle snort*


So far I had the god of evil and the god of terror on my side. My good-guy image was taking a serious beating. Maybe I should recruit some unicorns.


Respect the written word and all that, but you have to have fun too, find the joy, and most of all, forget about everything else. Forget about the other book. Forget about the future. Writing is about the now, is it not? It's about putting down words and creating worlds and really, that's it. Worrying about how the book will do, how it will be received, about if it will all be worth it is just a waste of time and takes away from the creation of it all. 


It wasn’t love or lust, but something we both recognized as a possibility of something. It was so pure, so uninhibited … We just threw ourselves into it. These moments that were little pockets of perfection. It was like nothing else mattered. Just us.


She looks into my eyes and I'm lost. Wrecked. There's no thought, no desire - expect to please her. Make her see stars and touch heaven. 


Thank god for e-readers; you can read the filthiest shit and pretend you're engrossed in War and Peace. 


You are my greatest weakness because I have no defense when it comes to you. 


Amazon’s Top 100 list is the best indicator of how books are selling and the moment I peek at the Top 20, I’m a little mind-blown. Professor Dumbass is not such a dumbass after all. About half the books in the Top 20 are cheaply priced erotica, ranging from 99 cents to $2.99. They all seem to feature the same guy, too, in various stages of undress. A few have Jesus beards and tattoos, more are cut off at neck level because I’m guessing their faces are hideous, and all are baring their steroid-pumped chests. Shit, I don’t want to think about how small their balls must be.


He made me forget the world around me. He was enough. And, together, we were everything.


I was only limited by my ignorance, by my fear, and by my own sense of right and wrong. 


I want her. This fearless, stunning woman. And I want the kids. Those perfect, awful, amazing children - whom she loves with every inch of her soul. I want them to be mine. Mine to hold, mine to protect and teach. Their joy, their laughter, their love. I want to come home to it, bask in it, be the reason for it. But even more than that, I want to deserve them. To be worthy.


The worst thing you can do in life is to ignore an opportunity out of fear. 


I have loved you every moment of every day, and I will love you until I cease to be. Bird, man or kind, I love you and I will always love you.
