One Night Quotes.

1. "The most jealous and insecure are the ones who are guilty of betrayal. The ones who are the angriest are those who are pulling cons themselves, only to find out they’re being conned as well. A thief hates to be robbed, and a cheater always wants you to be loyal while they are being unfaithful. When suspicions arise and the questions start, they are always defensive, always volatile. A thief takes being robbed personally, the same way a player falls apart when he finds out he is being played."

5. "And you’re sitting here, waiting on him, looking like a lost puppy. I shrugged. It was a good month. I’m hoping for more five-cups-of-coffee moments. Five-cups-of-coffee moments? You know. That serious high you get after you’ve had five cups of coffee. You have to keep feeding love what it needs to keep it feeling like love. Drink a lot of coffee every day, and you’ll need to drink more coffee to get the same effect. Caffeine and love. Both are drugs. You become dependent. It starts to own you. Your relationship with Chicken and Waffles sounds as miserable as my marriage. I’m not hooked. We’re just ships docked at the same port for now, that’s all. You’re restless. Aggravated. Your expression says you’re in pain and ready to jump. I frowned at my phone. Hurts when he doesn’t call or text me back. The guy you’re chasing . . . is Chicken and Waffles the type of man you’d want your son to be? I’m not chasing him. I’m not chasing any man. Play the game. What you have described to me is an abusive relationship."

7. "Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell. Joan Crawford said that."

8. "Women can’t tell east from west, so you use these ridiculous ways of getting from one place to another. Ridiculous means? What exactly are you talking about? If you must know, a woman gives instructions to take a right at the beauty parlor on Main Street, and a man will tell you to head east. It’s the same thing, isn’t it? No, it isn’t, Kyle argued. Men don’t notice things like beauty parlors or red mailboxes."
- Debbie Macomber, One Night
