    In life people seek what they believe they deserve, even when it comes to something like love. “We accept the love we think we deserve (Chbosky Perks)” said Bill, the wallflowers teacher. To a great extent do I respect this quote although at the same time find love completely glorified, when Bill said that we in essence crave love and therefore “we accept the love we think we deserve”. To Charlie it shows the choices that his friends have made when it comes to love, like Sam falling for the wrong guy or Patrick loving someone who loves him but will not admit, however it also reveals much of who he is to himself and the love he has for others. For me it does the same and shows the way I view love.…

Love is a wish to live only for the sake of a sweetheart who begins his or her lover’s day with a smile and makes a darling to rejoice at every instant.
