Emily Griffin Quotes

“Maybe that's what it all comes down to. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice to make at all.” 
― Emily Giffin, Love the One You're With

****************************************************************
“You can only control your own actions. Not other people’s reactions.” 
― Emily Giffin, Something Blue

****************************************************************
“I think to myself that when you're in love, sometimes you have to swallow your pride, and sometimes you have to fight to keep your pride. It's a balance. But when the relationship is right, you find that balance.” 
― Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed

****************************************************************
“You can't quantify love, and if you try, you can end up focusing on misleading factors. Stuff that really has more to do with personality-the fact that some people are simply more expressive or emotional or needy in a relationship. But beyond such smokescreens, the answer is there. Love is seldom-almost never-an even proposition.” 
― Emily Giffin, Baby Proof

****************************************************************
“I nod, thinking of how difficult marriage can be, how much effort is required to sustain a feeling between two people - a feeling that you can't imagine will ever fade in the beginning when everything comes so easily. I think of how each person in a marriage owes it to the other to find individual happiness, even in a shared life. That is the only real way to grow together, instead of apart.” 
― Emily Giffin, Heart of the Matter

****************************************************************
“You see yourself as very average, ordinary. And there is nothing ordinary about you, Rachel." 
― Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed

****************************************************************
“We are one of those couples I used to watch, thinking to myself that I'd never be on the inside of something so special. I remember reassuring myself that it probably looked nicer that it actually was. I am happy to be wrong about that.” 
― Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed

****************************************************************
“Whenever you make a big decision in life, at least any decision 
where you have a viable alternative, there is an inevitable uneasy aftermath. 
Anxiety is merely a sign that you're taking something seriously.” 
― Emily Giffin, Baby Proof
