Book Quotes By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

"In real life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire."

"The wise are wise only because they love. And the foolish are foolish only because they think they can understand love."

"Love is like a dam: if you allow a tiny crack to form through which only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole structure, and soon no one will be able to control the force of the current.
For when those walls come down, then love takes over, and it no longer matters what is possible or impossible; it doesn't even matter whether we can keep the love one at our side. To love is to lose control."

"There are moments when you have to take a risk, to do crazy things."
