And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go.
~ Cassandra Clare
Holding hands with you is like a promise that, if even for a brief moment or a few hours, we don't have to face the world alone.
Expressions of affection, like putting your arm around someone's shoulder, holding hands, or giving a kiss good night, involve the principle of honesty.
Relationship is not just holding hands while you understand each other. It's also having lots of misunderstandings and still not leaving each other's hands.
I don’t really know what love even is, and maybe I never will. All I know is that there are some smiles you never get tired of seeing, and some hands you never want to let go of, and some absences that hurt too much to ignore.”
