I recently enjoyed The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides.
Here are some of my favorite quotes. Please note, I don’t necessarily agree with all the below quotes, but find them helpful, intriguing, or illustrative of certain ideas or points of view.
“When we have sex, I always feel an insatiable hunger for him. For a kind of union between us. Something that’s bigger than me, bigger than us. Beyond words. For something that’s holy.”
“We’ve talked about this before, haven’t we? About fireworks. About love. About how we often mistake love for fireworks? For drama and dysfunction? But real love is very quiet. Very still. It’s boring if seen from the perspective of high drama. Love is deep and calm and constant.”
“Remember, love that doesn’t include honesty doesn’t deserve to be called love.”
