"someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. they can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. and whatever their reasons you must leave. because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. you never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. there is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. and there is the love that will be ready."

"It’s not that she didn’t want him, it’s that she wanted him too much. He did what no one else could, he made her feel vulnerable and that…that was unacceptable."

"Most people do not listen
with the intent
to understand;

they listen
with the intent
to reply.
