"I find the need to remind myself of the temporariness of a day, to reassure myself that I got through yesterday, I’ll get through today."
"Anytime you’re gonna grow, you’re gonna lose something. You’re losing what you’re hanging onto to keep safe. You’re losing habits that you’re comfortable with, you’re losing familiarity."
"Some people are good at being in love. Some people are good at love. Two very different things, I think. Being in love is the romantic part—sex all the time, midday naps in the sheets, the jokes, the laughs, the fun, long conversations with no pauses, overwhelming separation anxiety … Just the best sides of both people, you know? But love begins when the excitement of being in love starts to fade: the stress of life sets in, the butterflies disappear, the sex becomes a chore, the tears, the sadness, the arguments, the cattiness … The worst parts of both people. But if you still want that person by your side through all of those things … that’s when you know—that’s when you know you’re good at love."
"You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to."

"She scares the hell out of me and calms my soul at the same time. Maybe that’s what love is—a total contradiction that somehow balances out."
