The purpose of life is not to just be happy. The purpose of life my love, is to feel. You must understand that your pain, is essential. - Make me feel something, and I'll want to keep you around forever.
"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them." ~ Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island
