If Anything, Remember,
a novel by Molly Harras
  • "If I told you that I wanted to be a doctor, you might say that I would be better suited for Engineering since I got an A in Physics C, which is quite an accomplishment at this school. If I told you that I wanted to be an Engineer, you might ask why I took so many art classes then. If I told you I wanted to be an artist, I can guarantee that you would tell me that my intelligence would be wasted."

  • "This all sounds very dramatic, I’m sure, but think about it this way: after over a year and a half of dating, after weathering a breakup, after falling madly in love twice, it was our futures that would tear us apart. Our futures, those things that seemed to have more control over us than we had over them, were going to separate us and nullify our love."

  • "If Aarib had accidentally removed your shirt somehow, I would have told you that you look cute and the fact that you were shirtless would be most of the reason, so…"

  • "Here’s the thing about guys in suits: they can complain all they want about how it’s uncomfortable and whatever, but a half-decent suit on any guy makes them reach 200% attractiveness. It’s a scientific fact. So when West walked into view with his three piece suit (three piece suits push attractiveness to 500%), I wanted to swoon. I wanted to take a deep breath, then fall gracefully onto the couch and let him rush to my side and bring me back from the brink of unconsciousness. So here’s a piece of advice for any guys seeking to improve their attractiveness: suits."

  • "I didn’t want to talk about it anyways, especially since the conversation would involve my tears and if there’s anything I despise, it’s when other people see me cry."

  • "There are 3 billion people in the world,” Dad said with a smile. “If he’s one in a million, there’s 3,000 other people out there like him. I guess what I’m trying to tell you is this: if you want him back, then ask. If you’re willing to move on, then keep your mind open."

  • "Don’t say that,” Harvey shook his head. “You deserve friends just like anyone else. Friends are supposed to take the good with the bad and forgive and forget. Stop thinking that we’re pissed at you because of something you said or did a month ago – we’re not. We understand that you’re having a hard time with college and your future because we are too."

    Day 13

  • "Well,” West said, rubbing the back of his neck, “I can’t really speak for everybody because I don’t know everyone else’s definition, but for me, I know I love you because I can’t get you out of my head. I think about you or see a picture of you or catch a glimpse of you in the hallway and I can’t help but smile. I’ll sit on the couch with you and you don’t even have to say anything funny and I’ll laugh just because I love being around you. I want to kiss your face because that’s the only way I can think to express how I feel – words just can’t do it. I’ll do anything for you because I want to see you happy. I dream of falling asleep with you in my arms and waking up next to you.” West took a deep breath and looked me in the eye. “That’s how."

  • "I know, I know, I’m missing a lot of factors that make college worth the cost and time, like the fact that instead of having to take random useless courses every year, I’ll be able to focus on subjects that interest me. I know that, but it’s the principle of the thing. And the worst part is, no matter how much I hate “the System” there’s not much of a way around it that produces significantly less pissed off graduates like me."

    Sorry I haven’t been posting lately - I’ve been typing late at night and, therefore, too lazy to go and turn the wifi on downstairs. but I will update my quotes very soon! I’m at 21k, and should make it to 22k or 23k tonight. I’m behind by about 5k on word count for where I am plot-wise, but I’m going to leave that matter until later.

    Other than that, things are going well. Chrissy, my main character, is sufficently terrible as I intended and things are falling apart the way I need them to. So now I’ll go back and pull out some quotes.
