If you want something from someone -
especially if that something is sex -
what you are feeling is not true love.

and not about seeking happiness for yourself.

is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

is now in my life causes an ever greater abundance
to flow in my direction.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

the greater part of his life getting his living.

the sum of its participants,
and can take on a life of its own.
