"When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You see the essence of the person, not the shell. You can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart. That’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant."

"A man’s heart is a wretched, wretched thing. It isn’t like a mother’s womb. It won’t bleed. It won’t stretch to make room for you."
