Book Quotes | If I Stay by Gayle Foreman

This week’s book is If I Stay by Gayle Foreman. This is such an emotional book (and even more emotional movie), but it’s also a good book. I highly recommend having tissues with you while you read it. There are a few quotes that I really liked and I wanted to share them with you!

“Girlfriend is such a stupid word. I couldn’t stand calling her that. So, we had to get married, so I could call her my wife.”

If I Stay, Gayle Foreman

The main character’s boyfriend says this and I just that thought this was an awesome quote.

“She didn’t care that people called her a bitch. ‘It’s just another word for feminist,’ she told me with pride.”

If I Stay, Gayle Foreman

Again, just an awesome quote.

“But I’d understand if you choose love, Adam love, over music love. Either way, you win. And either way, you lose. What can I tell you? Love’s a bitch.”

If I Stay, Gayle Foreman

I liked this quote because the main character was struggling with following her dream and her love for her boyfriend and you could just feel it. Sorry, I can’t really explain it well, you’ll have to read the book.

“But the you who you are tonight is the same you I was in love with yesterday; the same you I will be in love with tomorrow.”

If I Stay, Gayle Foreman

The main character was struggling with not fitting in with her boyfriend’s ‘crowd’ and was worried that just because one Halloween night she seemed to fit in more than other nights and felt like he’d like that version of her more (which wasn’t really who she was).

“I didn’t really care. I shouldn’t have to care. I shouldn’t have to work this hard. I realize now that dying is easy. Living is hard.”

If I Stay, Gayle Foreman

I think anyone who has gone through a life or death situation themselves can relate to this quote a little. 

“Sometimes you make choices in your life and sometimes choices make you.”

If I Stay, Gayle Foreman

This is just a true quote and that is why I liked it.

“Love, it never dies. It never goes away, it never fades, so long as you hang on to it. Love can make you immortal.”

If I Stay, Gayle Foreman

This quote works for all kinds of love and you don’t just stop loving someone because they aren’t in your life anymore.
