Between pages

“She must have preserved your love like flowers between pages of her favourite romantic novel, for it to have lasted this long. Only difference being, this love is growing, by spreading its roots in words of passion and giving colour to tainted white pages”



Nicholas Sparks

Nicholas Sparks has definitely created a definition of a life-partner . He not only keeps me turning pages ,but hoping to find that particular fictional character in reality . Why are the characters in the book , long- term or tragedy ridden lovers , still so beautifully in love ? What never seizes , is the outsized emotion. It almost overwhelms me to achingly move and turn the pages , hoping for the characters to reconnect against all odds . No , he isn’t Dostoevsky . But he has the right choice of words to make a cheesy scene come alive , he doesn’t even ask you to take the effort to create a perfect scene , cause he’s already done it for you . I’ve not been that kind of child whose grown up reading novels , but this Sexy author alive , keeps me coming back for a new novel and a new adventure . Although it makes me bemoan the fact that such love does not exist , it keeps me searching . Everytime I reach the end of the novel, I clearly know I’ve not seen much of life . Well , my parents know who to blame ,if i end up single , waiting on characters like John and Landen Carter.
Below are some quotes, from the novels I’ve read and I relate to
1.As a girl, she had come to believe in the ideal man — the prince or knight of her childhood stories. In the real world, however, men like that simply didn’t exist.”
― Nicholas Sparks, Message in a Bottle

2.“That’s why I loved being with you. We could do the simplest things, like toss starfish into the ocean and share a burger and talk and even then I knew that I was fortunate. Because you were the first guy who wasn’t constantly trying to impress me. You accepted who you were, but more than that, you accepted me for me. And nothing else mattered– not my family or your family or anyone else in the world. It was just us.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me

3.Everyone wanted to believe that endless love was possible. She’d believed in it once too, back when she was eighteen. But she knew that love was messy, just like life. It took turns that people couldn’t foresee or even understand, leaving a long trail of regret in its wake. And almost always, those regrets led to the kinds of what if questions that could never be answered 4. Don’t take my advice. Or anyone’s advice. Trust yourself. For good or for bad, happy or unhappy, it’s your life, and what you do with it has always been entirely up to you.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me

4“You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most. I treasure each side, just as I have treasured our life together.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

5.Jamie: You know what I figured out today?
Landon: What?
Jamie: Maybe God has a bigger plan for me than I had for myself. Like this journey never ends. Like you were sent to me because I’m sick. To help me through all this. You’re my angel.
