You have to believe in love stories and prince charming and that eventually you’ll find your own happily ever after.
Taylor Swift
In fairy tales there’s always one person who is made for one other, and they find each other and live happily ever after. Cal was my person. I couldn’t imagine anyone more perfect. Yet what kind of sick fairy tale would it be if he was the one made exactly right for me and I wasn’t right for him?
Cate Tiernan
Have you thought of an ending?’ ‘Yes , several, and all are dark and unpleasant,’ said Frodo. ‘Oh , that won’t do!’ said Bilbo. ‘Books ought to have good endings. How would this do: and they all settled down and lived together happily ever after?’ ‘It will do well, if it ever comes to that,’ said Frodo.
J. R. R. Tolkien
That’s the fairy tale. You meet, you fall in love, you kiss, and neither of you is revolted by it. You get married and have kids and live happily ever after.
Sarah Addison Allen

Heather King
Always, when you know what you don’t want, that’s when the rocket of desire is born of what you do want. That is the fruit of your experience. Now pluck it and savor it and enjoy it. Visualize it, and find the feeling place of it. And live happily ever after, once you get the hang of this.
Esther Hicks
No one ever does live happily ever after, but we leave the children to find that out for themselves.
Stephen King
Happily ever after doesn’t come easy. But for love, it’s always worth the fight.
