Mary Ann Shaffer Love Quotes and Sayings

1. I don’t want to be married just to be married. I can’t think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can’t talk to, or worse, someone I can’t be silent with.

2. Have you ever noticed that when your mind is awakened or drawn to someone new, that person’s name suddenly pops up everywhere you go? My friend Sophie calls it coincidence, and Mr. Simpless, my parson friend, calls it Grace. He thinks that if one cares deeply about someone or something new one throws a kind of energy out into the world, and “fruitfulness” is drawn in.

3. Think of it! We could have gone on longing for one another and pretending not to notice forever. This obsession with dignity can ruin your life if you let it.

4. Then I imagined a lifetime of having to cry to get him to be kind, and I went back to no again.

4. I never met a man half so true as a dog. Treat a dog right and he’ll treat you right – he’ll keep you company, be your friend, never ask you no questions.

5. It was amazing to me that so many people who wander into bookshops don’t really know what they’re after-they only want to look around and hope to see a book that will strike their fancy.
