Book Quotes | Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks

Safe Haven

This week I have chosen Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks. I’m not a huge fan of just romance novels, but Nicholas Sparks is a great author. Safe Haven was one of the first books I read by him and I absolutely loved it. I just wanted to share some of my favorite quotes from the book!


“That’s what courage is. If she weren’t scared, she wouldn’t need courage in the first place.”

Safe Haven, Nicholas Sparks

This is very true. In the book, the MC is running away from an abusive relationship and the fact that she was scared is what made her have the courage to run. 

“Every couple needs to argue now and then. Just to prove that the relationship is strong enough to survive. Long-term relationships, the ones that matter, are all about weathering the peaks and the valleys.”

Safe Haven, Nicholas Sparks

Yes. If your relationship can’t handle a few little fights every now and then you’re not going to make it. 

“She wasn’t sure when it happened. Or even when it started. All she knew for sure was that right here and now, she was falling hard and she could only pray that he was feeling the same way.”

Safe Haven, Nicholas Sparks

I’m sure that’s what we all feel or would feel when we have feelings for someone.

“I’ve come to believe that in everyone’s life, there’s one undeniable moment of change, a set of circumstances that suddenly alters everything.

Safe Haven, Nicholas Sparks

It doesn’t take much to completely change your life and you have to make your choices wisely and learn how to handle the changes you can’t avoid. 

“Everyone has a past, but that’s just it — it’s in the past. You can learn from it, but you can’t change it.”

Safe Haven, Nicholas Sparks

You shouldn’t judge people based on their past, especially when they are trying to do or be better. It’s also hard sometimes for some us to forget and move on from our past.

“People will tell you most of the story and I’ve learned that the past they neglect to tell you is often the most important part. People hide the truth because they’re afraid.”

Safe Haven, Nicholas Sparks

I’m sure everyone has been in a situation where they were telling a story or something and left out some information for fear of being judged or hurting someone.
