Teenage Love Quotes

1. “Parents have this twisted belief that anyone under the age of about twenty simply can’t know what love is, like the age to love is assessed in the same way the law assesses the legal age to drink.

The truth is that adults love in different ways, not the only way.” – J. A. Redmerski, “The Edge of Never”

2. “That was our mistake, I think. One of many mistakes. To believe that boys were acting with a logic that we could someday understand.

Silly and young and straightforward; they weren’t hiding anything.” – Emma Cline, “The Girls”

And the fact that some boys aren’t aware of the little things we notice and take for granted is what really hurts. ” – Unknown
