The person who values the relationship more (or is valued less by the other person) deserves someone who shares their commitment, and the person who values the relationship (or other person) less is holding the other person back from enjoying the kind of relationship they want and need.

Don’t ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance, or my kindness for weakness.

The only obsession everyone wants: love. People think that in falling in love they make themselves whole? The Platonic union of souls? I think otherwise. I think you’re whole before you begin. And the love fractures you. You’re whole, and then you’re cracked open.

Dear Photograph,
Back in 1970, when I was 7 years old, I went to the Dime store and bought my Dad this huge joke cigar and I was so excited to give it to him. Like a trooper, he smoked the whole thing.  It had to have been the worst cigar he ever smoked, but he never let on. I miss my Dad.

I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Mark Twain
