"We die to each other daily. What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them. And they have changed since then. To pretend that they and we are the same is a useful and convenient social convention which must sometimes be broken. We must also remember that at every meeting we are meeting a stranger."
"Because you can’t be this afraid of losing everything
if you don’t love everything first
because you have to have a soul-crushing hope
that things will get better
to be this afraid of missing it."
