Emily Thorne Quotes
Love built on lies is an arduous endeavor, for wherever passion and treachery meet, dissolution begins. Stiil, we fight to hold our ground in the emptiness ignoring the fact that every relationship, even the ones we cherish, inevitably dies.
In order to regain control, we must sometimes relinquish it. By doing so, we believe we are protecting the ones we love, the ones we cannot live without. But the most dangerous truth of all is that control is merely an illusion.
It's hard for me to share memories from my past, Daniel. It's hard for me to trust. You know, people think that because I lost my family I never knew what real love was. But I did and it was ripped away from me and I still feel that pain like it was yesterday. That's why I push people away.

Emily: I didn't come here for platitudes.
Aiden: Do you love him?
Emily: Are you serious?
Aiden: I need to know, Emily, because I didn't just come here to take down the Graysons. I came because of you, and I will not be made a fool of.
Emily: I'll handle this.
Jack: And how are you going to do that, Emily? You can't even trust the people you have on your side.
Jack: I keep telling myself I don't want to know, maybe I'm trying to protect myself or you, but the more I see, the more I wonder what happened to that little girl that I met on the beach?
Emily: What happened to her? She lost everything, Jack. How do you not get that?
Jack: I know about loss, Emily. Believe me.
Emily: Jack, I'm so sorry.
Jack: Don't waste time being sorry. Just finish whatever it is you're gonna do.
Emily: I have it all handled.
Nolan: See, you say that, Ems, but uh, the more strings you pull, the easier it is to get strangled. But then again I'm just a self-made billionaire with a 170 IQ, so what do I know, right?
Emily: I know things went south before--
Nolan: Things didn't just go south, Ems. They went Arctic. And you know what, frankly, I'm kind of tired of the way that this stuff is constantly screwing up our lives. Especially the stuff you want the most.
When on a mission of revenge, one must maintain total control, over risks, emotions, and one's enemies. The single greatest threat to success is losing control of your allies.Emily
