The following quotes are from My True Love Gave To Me which is edited by Stephanie Perkins and includes twelve winter romances from twelve different authors.
They aren’t actually together as the two sayings are separated by a couple of pages, but they do look great together as a compare/ contrast thing.
“I will have you and I will hold you. I will learn a thousand ways to make you weep. Your tears will be the sugar in my tea, your misery my delight.”
“I will free you and I will lift you. I will learn a thousand ways to make you laugh. Your smiles will be the honey in my mead, your enchantment my delight.”
–The Girl Who Woke the Dreamer
This story is one of my favourite stories from this collection. But don’t be fooled by the sweet cover, there are some crazy and wacky stories in there too, especially Holly Black’s short story. *freaks out internally* But they made a wonderful range of winter romances. 🙂
