Everyone says that loves hurts, but that’s not true. Loneliness
hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Everyone confuse
these things with love but reality, love is the only thing in this
world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.
It hurts to realize that the person who loved you most was the person you never took notice of until they're finally gone.
We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
- Sam Keen, from To Love and Be Loved
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction. - Antoine de Saint
