Quotes from "The Lucky One" by Nicholas Sparks

This is my second attempt at reading Nicholas Sparks. I read "At First Sight" earlier before this but didn't like it that much.

What's your reason?
I like to walk.
I see. (p. 91)

Even if he was a sociopath, even if the guy left town, feelings aren't turned on and off like a switch. But they would pass as surely as the rain would continue to fall. (p. 345)
