Amy Bloom Love Quotes and Sayings

1. Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people have been looking for each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.

2. Marriage is not a ritual or an end. It is a long, intricate, intimate dance together and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance and your choice of partner.

3. A blind man can see how much I love you.

4. Be real and be unashamed, even of your faults. I do truly know what my husband is made of and vice versa.

5. Our capacity to love is not limited; time is a constraint and so is energy, but love that makes your life better gives you more of what you need.

Sayings by Amy Bloom

1. I do not say what I feel, and people often take that for shyness, even kindness.

2. You cannot fake effort; talent is great, but perseverance is necessary.

3. I think the most important thing in the world is being brave. I’d rather be brave than beautiful. Hell, I’d settle for acting brave.

4. You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful.

5. Men do not know what they do not know, and women should not tell them.

6. Learning to listen, letting people finish their sentences, and most of all, the habit of noticing the difference between what people say and how they say it. {on the habits of psychoanalytic training and practice applied to fiction writing} The gap between what people tell you and what’s really going on is what interests me.

7. In a true partnership, the kind worth striving for, the kind worth insisting on and even, frankly, worth divorcing over, both people try to give as much or even a little more than they get. “Deserves” is not the point. And “owes” is certainly not the point. The point is to make the other person as happy as we can, because their happiness adds to ours. The point is, that in the right hands, everything that you give, you get.

8. In the right hands, everything that you give, you get.
