“When someone you love dies, and you’re not expecting it, you don’t lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time — the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers.”
—John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
—Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
“Stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold.”
—S. E. Hinton, The Outsiders
Even between lovers, one should always seek adventures to entice each new day to be the same different from the last. Dreams do just that. Life, well, most of us love a good adventure, whether it life or with Bilbo Baggins.
