Quote I Love: Life would not be complete without…

Sorry I missed posting on Monday, but I’m plugging away on Walter and Kevin’s story to meet my last writing goal for the year: finishing the first draft of this novel. Two days to go. Not sure I’ll make it, but I should be pretty close by the end of the day on Friday. Then I’ll be in editing mode.

Today I wrote a couple of passion-filled scenes. I was pretty happy with how they turned out (even in this first draft), so I felt like sharing a quote about love and passion today.

“Life would not be complete without the smell of your hair, the touch of your hand, the taste of your lips.The beating of your heart, your breath, as you rest on my chest. To hear your sighs and feel the passion, desires coming from within…I know men have surely died for less.”

Quote I Love: The Heart

“The heart is the place where we live our passions. It is frail and easily broken, but wonderfully resilient. There is no point in trying to deceive the heart. It depends upon our honesty for its survival.”

-Leo Buscaglia

This one reminds me of how important it is to be true to who we are, to live our lives with as much passion and honesty as possible.


Quote I Love: A love so free

“Love me without fear
Trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding
Want me without restrictions
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibitions
For a love so free…
Will never fly away.”

Dick Sutphen

Hope you all find a lover who strives for such a state.

Quote I Love: There’s this place in me

“There’s this place in me where your fingerprints still rest, your kisses still linger, and your whispers softly echo. It’s the place where a part of you will forever be a part of me.”

Gretchen Kemp

This one reminds me of Jay and Lincoln from Breathe.

Quotes I Love: Love and Passion

Once a week I post a quote I love. It may be related to writing, inspiration, lgbt issues, my own life, or anything else that interests me. So here’s this week’s Quote I Love…

I’ve been working on revisions for my current work-in-progress, Breathe. Part of the goal of this last round of edits was to increase the romantic tension and build up the emotion in every scene.

Focusing on the love and desire in my work puts me in a romantic mood, so today I’m sharing some of my favorite quotes about love and passion.

Hope you enjoy these.

The honesty’s too much
And I have to close my eyes and hide
I wanna hold you til I die
Til we both break down and cry
I wanna hold you till the fear in me subsides”
