Jackie Collins Quotes

Im a survivor. I was thinking about what you said, and youre absolutely right - I have to let go to continue. This devastating news is not going to slow me down. Im my own person. I always have been. Ive never believed in those people who blame everything on their parents - you know, Im a fuck-up because my father was a fuck-up. Or Im a drunk because my mother was an alcoholic. So my father was a hit man? Maybe. So he murdered my mother? Maybe. I dont know any of these things for a fact. But Im accepting them, and Im beginning to realize theyre not part of who I am.

Falling in love is like getting hit by a truck and yet not being mortally wounded. just sick to your stomach, high one minute, low the next. Starving hungry but unable to eat. hot, cold, forever horny, full of hope and enthusiasm, with momentary depressions that wipe you out.
It is also not being able to remove the smile from your face, loving life with a mad passionate intensity, and feeling ten years younger.
Love does not appear with any warning signs. You fall into it as if pushed from a high diving board. No time to think about what's happening. It's inevitable. An event you can't control. A crazy, heart-stopping, roller-coaster ride that just has to take its course.
