"This isn't a conversation about this being over, it's, it's... I'm not, like, putting a period at the end of this, you know, I'm putting, like, an ellipsis on it"

love at first sight

"Would you believe in a love at first sight? Yes, I'm certain it happens all the time." -The Beatles

Love at first sight is only realizing an imagination that has always haunted us; or meeting with a face, a figure, or cast of expression in perfection that we have seen and admired in a less degree or in less favorable circumstances a hundred times before
-William Hazlitt 

“The day that a woman who is passing before you sheds a light upon you as she goes, you are lost, you love. You have then but one thing to do: to think of her so earnestly that she will be compelled to think of you.”
-Les Miserables

Noah: And when I see something that I like, I gotta… I love it. I go crazy for it.
Allie: What are you talking about it?
Noah: Well, you.

Research has shown two bases for love at first sight. The first is that the attractiveness of a person can be very quickly determined, with the average time in one study being 0.13 seconds. The second is that the first few minutes of a relationship have shown to be predictive of the relationship's future success, more so than what two people have in common or whether they like each other

 You have killed my love. You used to stir my imagination. Now you don’t even stir my curiosity. You simply produce no effect. I loved you because you were marvelous, because you had genius and intellect, because you realized the dreams of great poets and gave shape and substance to the shadows of art. You have thrown it all away. You are shallow and stupid. 
-The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde

"You must not let yourself become too respectable. Keep yourself a little wild. What is life for, if not for the living of it?"
-The Callender Papers, Cynthia Voigt
