What I remember is love - all love - love of this dirt road, this sunrise, a day by the river, the stranger I met in a cafe.

No wonder I am surprised if you do." - Jeanette Winterson

Selfish people are hard to love because so little love comes out of them." - William Nicholson

For instance, lately whenever I've tried to concentrate on anything serious or beautiful, I've started thinking about the Spencers' dance next week. I am ashamed of my pettiness.

But I love you enough to hope that you will not care that I am being selfish in trying to make the rest of my life-whatever its length-happy, by spending it with you. I want to be married to you, Tessa. I want it more than I have ever wanted anything else in my life." - Cassandra Clare

"There's a lot of people that I disagree with that I think I could have interesting conversations with. What I don't want to get into is manufactured conflict. I would much rather talk to someone like Dr. Rhonda Patrick or Randall Carlson and be mesmerized by information. I guess in a way that's selfish, or maybe not objective of me.
