11 Quotes from books that will remind you to never settle in love

It’s so important that people who fall in love believe that they deserve to be treated like a priority and to know they deserve the best. So many people end up in loveless relationships based o obligation and ultimatums and forget that they deserve the world and then sone.

In this month about love, we’ve complied a list of quotes from books and novels that remind us to never settle for anything less than we deserve.

1. “I think I deserve something beautiful.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

2. “If someone likes you, they will stay with you; if they don’t like you enough to stay with you, they aren’t worth being with anyway. You know that.”
Jojo Moyes, Still Me

3. “You cannot convince people to love you. This is an absolute rule. No one will ever give you love because you want him or her to give it. Real love moves freely in both directions. Don’t waste your time on anything else.”
Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

4. “I know you’ve only ever known your father and me. And I love Jack, because he is your father. But there’s another kind of love, Amanda. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible. I want you to know that you could have that. I want you to hold out for it.”
Nicholas Sparks, Nights in Rodanthe

5. “I suspect that most people harbor a lingering sense of What if I’d followed my heart?”
― Nicholas Sparks, Every Breath

6. “If he disagrees,” Karen goes on, “then he was never worthy of being your friend in the first place, let alone worth giving your heart to.”
Rachel Schurig, Ransom

7. “He said that I was too focused on what I wanted for my future. I didn’t give him enough attention because my dreams were too big. And no guy would ever want someone like me because I wanted too much for myself.”
I couldn’t listen to another word without wanting to smash something. “What kind of insecure piece of sh** doesn’t want his girlfriend to be successful?”

J. Sterling, Heartless: episode 2

8. “Be happy. Be ridiculously happy, Nika. Don’t let anyone else be responsible for your joy. That’s up to you. So, chase it. Without abandon. Without guilt. Without fear. And never settle. Not in life. And especially not in love.”
– J. Sterling, Behind the Plate

9. “Are you mad at me?” His eyes widened in surprise.
“At you? Why would I be mad at you?” His teeth ripped through a piece of the bread. “I’m mad at the d***head who said that to you, the guy who put that in your head and allowed you to believe it.”

– J. Sterling, Heartless: episode 2

10. “Never settle unless there’s something worth settling for.”
Adrian Hayward, Dig Deep, Stand Tall: How to Connect with Your Heart, Take the Limits Off of Life, and Finally Reach Your Dreams

11. “Sometimes it takes a heartbreak to shake us awake and help us see we are worth so much more than we’re settling for.”
