"How beautiful to find a heart that loves you, without asking you for anything, but to be okay."
– Gibran Khalil Gibran
"This is the trap of having something to live for:
Everything else seems lifeless."
– David Levithan, Every Day
"I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong."
– Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun
