Nicholas Sparks, Dear John 中文譯成分手信

When you're struggling with something, look at all the people around you and realize that every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, it's just as hard as what you're going through.”   

“I finally understood what true love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.”

It's possible to go on, no matter how impossible it seems, and that in time, the grief . . . lessens. It may not go away completely, but after a while it's not so overwhelming.”

Our story has three parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. And although this is the way all stories unfold, I still can't believe that ours didn't go on forever.”

“And when her lips met mine, I knew that I could live to be a hundred and visit every country in the world, but nothing would ever compare to that single moment when I first kissed the girl of my dreams and knew that my love would last forever.”

“At some point, being angry is just another bad habit, like smoking, and you keep poisoning yourself without thinking about it.”  ~Jonathan Tropper, This is Where I Leave You   

Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn't make you love them any less.” ―”Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song


You're going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it's always their actions you should judge them by. It's actions, not words, that matter.” …― Nicholas Sparks, The Rescue


One woman has hurt you, and you take revenge to the whole world. You’re a coward (懦夫)and weakling(懦夫).  ~Casablanca 北非諜影

解析: coward 指懦夫是我們一般耳熟能詳的用法,而weakling 同樣具有懦夫的意思。 The word “weakling” literally refers to a person who is weak in character or in strength. 此句同時用兩個類似用字是強調用法!

You have to do everything you can

You have to work your hardest

The following quote from Nicholas Sparks,The Notebook

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”

“You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.”



”I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.”

因為你所以我想要這麼做,我想要全部的你,永遠,每一天,你和我~ 每一天。

“You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had,

情書求婚推薦句: “I love you. I am who I am because of you…. and no matter what happens to us in the future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours.


“You are, and always have been, my dream.” 

“You are my best friend as well as my lover, and I do not know which side of you I enjoy the most. I treasure each side, just as I have treasured our life together.”

“We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that's why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I'll never forget a single moment of it.” 

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that's what you've given me. That's what I'd hoped to give you forever”

The following quote from: Nicholas Sparks ,Three Weeks With My Brother

Dreams are always crushing when they don't come true. But it's the simple dreams that are often the most painful because they seem so personal, so reasonable, so attainable. You're always close enough to touch, but never quite close enough to hold and it's enough to break your heart.”

Never forget that anticipation is an important part of life. Work's important, family's important, but without excitement, you have nothing. You're cheating yourself if you refuse to enjoy what's coming.”

When you chase a dream, you learn about yourself. You learn your capabilities and limitations, and the value of hard work and persistence.”

I don't pray because it doesn't work. Prayer doesn't fix anything. Bad things happen anyway.”

Tough toenails, tiger. What you want and what you get are usually two entirely different things.”

“I've come to understand that arguing with [my wife] about it has never solved anything. So instead of denying it, I've learned to take her hands, look her in the eyes, and respond with those three magic words every woman wants to hear:"You're right, sweetheart.”

“What good is talking if neither of you are really committed? If one of you had an affair or got addicted to drugs or was abusive, simply talking about it wouldn’t take the hurt away; or fix the trust that's been lost. In the end, marriage comes down to actions. I think people talk too much about the things that bother them, instead of actually doing the little things that keep a marriage strong.”

Relationships are the most important thing in life, and friends are a part of that.”

When you know that someone close to you is going to die, there's a natural tendency to want to spend as much time with them as you can.”

I told everyone how my sister and I used to sing to each other on our birthday. I told them that, when I thought of my sister, I could still hear her laughter, sense her optimism, and feel her faith. I told them that my sister was the kindest person I’ve ever known, and that the world was a sadder place without her in it. And finally, I told them to remember my sister with a smile, like I did, for even though she was being buried near my parents, the best parts of her would always stay alive, deep within our hearts.”

I never know what to tell them. I mean, there's nothing you can say to make a person stop hurting. Half the time, I just feel like telling them the truth. I'd say that for 3 months, you're going to feel worse than you've ever felt and you cope as best you can. And that after 6 months, the pain isn't so bad, but it still hurts more than you think it will. And even after years, you still find yourself thinking about the person you lost and get sad about it. And you still miss them all the time.”

Life, he decided, was for living, not for having, and he wanted to experience every moment that he could.”

“ I think if two people are committed to the marriage, if they really want to make it work, then they'll find a way to do it. No matter what happens in life.”

Jill had three basic statements about life,

1. It is your life, usually with some added social commentary.

2. What you want and what you get are usually two entirely different things.

3. No one ever said that life was fair.”


The following quote from: Nicholas Sparks,The Lucky One (中文譯作幸運符)

“It was easy to idealize someone you barely knew.”

 “She was struck by the simple truth that sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people...”

 “Most people don’t know how to appreciate the silence. They can’t help talking.”

  “Based on her experience with men, most assumed that when you talked to them about a problem or dilemma, they were expected to offer an opinion, even when all you wants was for them to listen.”

“I tell myself that I know you, and then when I think about it, I realize that I don't.”

“I knew it wasn't fair, I knew it was wrong, but I couldn't help it. And after a while, the anger I felt just sort of became part of me, like it was the only way I knew how to handle the grief. I didn't like who I'd become, but I was stuck in this horrible cycle of questions and blame.” “He was the toast to her butter.”

 “If relationships were hard, marriage was even harder... it seemed like most couples struggled. It went with the territory. What did Nana always say? Stick two different people with two different sets of expectations under one roof and it ain't always going to be shrimp and grits on Easter.” 

“You should be kissed everyday, every hour, every minute.”

 “Every now and then, I’d meet a guy and think that we were getting along great, and suddenly I’d stop hearing from him. Not only did he stop calling, but if I happened to bump into him sometime later he always acted like I had the plague. I didn’t understand it. I still don’t. And it bothered me. It hurt me. With time, it got harder and harder to keep blaming the guys, and I eventually came to the conclusion that there was something wrong with me. That maybe I was simply meant to live my life alone.”

“It was their secret, a secret meant for just the two of them, and she'd never been able to imagine how it would sound coming from someone else. But, somehow, Logan made it sound just right.” 

“She had been proud of his decision to serve his country, her heart bursting with love and admiration the first time she saw him outfitted in his dress blues. ”

 “In the blink of an eye, something happens by chance - when you least expect it - sets you on a course that you never planned, into a future you never imagined.”

“Friends come and go, clothing is packed and unpacked, households are continually purged of unnecessary items, and as a result, not much sticks. it's hard at times but it makes a kid strong in ways that most people can't understand. Teaches them that even though people are left behind, new ones will inevitably take their place; that every place has something good and bad to offer. It makes a kid grow up fast.” 

 “When a man is that special, you know it sooner than you think possible. You recognize it instinctively, and you're certain that no matter what happens, there will never be another one like him.” 

“He closed his eyes as she put her hand on his shoulder, and in that instant, nothing else mattered. Not the song, not the place, not the other couples around him. Only this, only her. He gave himself over to the feel of her body as it pressed against him, and they moved slowly in small circles on the sawdust-strewn floor, lost in a world that felt as though it had been created for just the two of them.”

“...feelings aren't turned on and off like a switch. But they would pass as surely as the rain would continue to fall.” 

“Proximity bred familiarity, and familiarity bred comfort.” 

“There is nothing like love. You should try it.”

 “As Logan walked towards her, he smiled as if reading her mind and opened his arms.” 

“I got the sense that he was the kind of person who couldn't hold anger for more than a few minutes, because it just wasn't in him. It could never grow into resentment or bitterness, and I knew then that he was the kind of man who would be married forever. And I decided then and there that I should be the one to marry him.” 

“I love you, Elizabeth... and more than that, I like you. I enjoy spending time with you.”
