Being remembered by someone is a really beautiful, lovely compliment.
Out of all the people they encounter in their lives they think of you and then to act on that and let you know? If that doesn’t make your heart swell, it should.
A very wise woman once told me to think of long-term relationships as if you were backpacking a continent: that I could spend my entire life with bare feet and a backpack, [walking] through Africa, and on my dying day still not know everything there is about that continent. And to me, that’s the metaphor of what long-term relationships are — that it’s a journey, and you have to stay intentional and you have to stay present. It’s so easy to get tired, or to lose track of the path that you’re on, or to want a new adventure. I think what I’m learning, if we’re all honest, there are moments that we all have that in our long-term relationships. It makes it ache a little bit less, knowing that it’s a universal thing in a lot of ways, and that to stay mindful and to stay present and to stay curious about the person that’s inches away from you all the time is really a beautiful thing. And that the (friendship) can actually be full of life and full of passion, if you stay connected.
…luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.
this is so much my childhood.
I feel small; but so are stars from a distance.
