N is for Noah Calhoun

Noah Calhoun is a character in The Notebook, a novel by Nicholas Sparks.

Noah is the epitome of what makes a great man. He loves Allie with a fierceness and loyalty that most of us could learn from. 

Here are two of my fave excerpts from this amazing novel.... to Allie from Noah

 The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. Maybe they always have been and will be. Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we’ve found each other. And maybe each time, we’ve been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both a  goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.

I love you, Allie. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I've ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. 
I will always be yours. And, my darling, you will always be mine.

  1. Ahh, that's beautiful. I've never read The Notebook. I know I've read another of his though, but it's been a while and can't remember which.

  2. I love the Notebook! Noah is so romantic and wonderful!

  3. Swoon :) I'm ashamed to say I haven't read the novel, but I've shed a tear at the film. Must read the book!

  4. I loved the Notebook. Such a great movie. The quotes are great.

  5. I absolutely adore the Notebook. As a general rule, I'm not much of a Sparks fan, but my family has been touched by Alzheimers, and I loved what he did in that story. Such a wonderful tale of enduring love.

  6. Aw, The Notebook added a new flair to romantic novels. So great! My Hubby is a Noah, so I can attest they do exist. :)

  7. See, as much as I appreciate the romantic notions of the book, it's something I could never read. I mean, intentionally subjecting myself to emotional manipulation? I get enough of that with raising kids. =)

  8. I didn't read the book, but I died of tears watching the movie, so do I want to?? lol Such sweet words, though. <3


Comments make me happy. So do photos of Adam Levine... <3
