The Time Traveler's Wife Quotes

It’s dark now and I am very tired. I love you, always. Time is nothing

Every day. Every minute.
Every minute, she says.
Yes, it's that way, isn't it?

Sometimes I'm happy when he's gone, but I'm always happy when he returns

You're the oddest person I've ever met, you couldn't get rid of me if you tried

When you live with a woman you learn something every day. So far I have learned that long hair will clog up the shower drain befor you can say "Liquid-Plumr"; that it is not advisable to clip something out of the newspaper before your wife has read it, even if the newspaper in question is a week old; that I am the only person in our two-person household who can eat the same thing for dinner three nights in a row without pouting; and that headphones were invented to preserve spouses from each other's musical excesses.

Listen, sometimes when you finally find out, you realize that you were much better off not knowing

What is more basic than the need to be known? It is the entirety of intimacy, the elixir of love, this knowing
