  • I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart. (Alice Walker)
  • We’re all a little weird, and life’s a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. (Dr. Seuss)

(Pablo Neruda)
