21 Beautiful Jennifer E Smith Quotes

21 JENSMITH quotes

Salutations everybody! Today I’m going to be doing a continuation of my quotable saga! I recently did a post where I listed my Top Ten Quotes from YA Books! I did not include any quotes from three of my most quotable authors, because they are each getting their own separate post with all of the quotes that I love from them. Or at least most of them.

Today’s continuation of the saga is on Jennifer E Smith. Easily the most quotable author to ever live. Hands down. Jennifer E Smith’s writing style is the most beautiful writing that I have ever read. Again, hands down. That being said, I have so many quotes from her books that I want to share with you that I better just get started!

Jennifer E Smith’s writing is basically one quote strung after another, making this beautiful story that I just cannot not mention. If that makes any sense what-so-ever. Haha, anyways…If you have not yet read her books, you should. I have a full book review of ‘This is What Happy Looks Like’, and I want to get reviews of her other books up soon.

Add it on Goodreads!: {The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight}

Add it on Goodreads!: {The Geography of You and Me}

Please note: I give full credit to the author of these quotes, Jennifer E Smith. I have read the books that these quotes are from, but I found them on Goodreads.com for this post. These are just my personal favorites, but I am sure I am missing some, because basically every word of all of her books could be considered a favorite quote of mine. These are in no specific order, because I really, actually cannot narrow them down to be on a number scale. You really should check out her books!

Well, without further ado, let’s get this Jennifer E Smith party started! (This is my favorite kind of party…)

I am going to separate the quotes by book. The first set of quotes is from The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight:

love at first sight

1. “It’s not the changes that will break your heart; it’s that tug of familiarity.”

2. “He’s like a song she can’t get out of her head. Hard as she tries, the melody of their meeting runs through her mind on an endless loop, each time as surprisingly sweet as the last, like a lullaby, like a hymn, and she doesn’t think she could ever get tired of hearing it.”

3. “Hadley didn’t know it was possible to miss someone who’s only a few feet away, but there it is.”

4. “Love isn’t supposed to make sense. It’s completely illogical.”

5. “Is it better to have had a good thing and lost it, or never to have had it?”

6. “It’s one thing to run away when someone’s chasing you. It’s entirely another to be running all alone.”

7. “Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?”

8. “Love is the strangest, most illogical thing in the world.”

9. “There’s always a gap between the burn and the sting of it, the pain and realization.”

10. “No one is useless in this world, who lightens the burden of it for anyone else.”

Next up is my favorite quotes from This is What Happy Looks Like! {Click for my full review}:

This is what happy looks like

11. “I’m not sure I’m finished saying hello yet.”

12. “It seemed to Ellie that you could tell a lot about a person by the way they carried a secret-by how safe they kept it, how soon they told, and the way they acted when they were trying to keep it from spilling out.”

13. “Nothing’s all that scary if you see it coming.”

14. “‘I never said I was good,” he told her, taking the pen. ‘Just that I liked doing it.’

‘That’s the best kind of good.’”

Subject: what happy looks like

Sunrises over the harbor. Ice cream on a hot day. The sound of waves down the street. The way my dog curls up next to me on the couch. Evening strolls. Great movies. Thunderstorms. A good cheeseburger. Fridays. Saturdays. Wednesdays, even. Sticking your toes in the water. Pajama pants. Flip-flops. Swimming. Poetry. The absence of smiley faces in an email.

What does it look like to you?”

16. “’Exactly. How can you know if it makes you happy if you’ve never experienced it?’

‘There are different kinds of happy. Some kinds don’t need any proof.’”

Now onto the last set of quotes! The beautiful quotes from The Geography of You and Me:


17. “But there’s no such thing as a completely fresh start. Everything new arrives on the heels of something old, and every beginning comes at the cost of an ending.”

18. “There was no point in waiting for someone who hadn’t asked, and there was no point in wishing for something that would never happen.”

19. “There’s a difference between loneliness and solitude.”

20. “You can’t know the answer until you ask the question.”

21. “The most basic sort of love: to be worried about the one who was worrying about you.”

Well, that’s all, folks! I could probably think of another hundred or so quotes from this lady, but then this post would be even longer. Thank you for sticking around and reading some of these beautiful quotes! If you have not read any of Jennifer E Smith’s books, I HIGHLY encourage you to check them out immediately. The writing is unlike anything else out there, and the stories are adorable and perfect for summer reading!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I will see you soon with another one!

See Ya!
